I like to add addresses to my phone book in Android. As a lot of my contacts live in buildings i also like to add the floor and apartment number to the address: Looking like that:
Street and Number, Floor and Department number Town, zip code State Country
Av. Whatever 12345, Floor 5-A Buenos Aires 1007 Argentina
When clicking on the address the GPS of my wish opens , finds the country, city but not the street because of the additional Floor and department information. Without this additional information everything well with Google Maps or Sygic.
So, how should i add this additional Floor and department information to my address without the GPS has problems to find the main location.Also from ICS on there is only one filed to add the whole address not as with Gingerbread where you had a field for street, city, etc.
Just getting used to my HTC Desire, after reading your forum I was comforted regarding battery life and it seems much better now than the first few days. I see another post on this but no answer, the address book only gives one line of the address is then any way round this? Even my first pda a Psion 3 had the option of which fields to display etc. there seems very little option to format what is seen, not that I am unhappy about the rest but to have to edit to see all the address is barmy. Another thing way back then that still is not found is search all fields of the contacts, i.e. to find a number of someone that rang on another phone.
The Gmail address book on the Web contains a field for birthdays, so why not the Android address book? While I'm sure the app could undergo a lot of changes (and everyone would have different ideas) something as basic as a birthday seems obvious.
I noticed something odd. I have a listview with custom BaseAdapter, and getView() inflates a layout. On 1.6 SDK (I've been developing on a G1), if I set android:clickable="true" on the layout, then the item is NOT clickable (but otherwise the item is clickable). Is this the correct behavior? It seems backwards to me. Furthermore, no matter now matter how i set android:clickable for the same layouts using 2.2 SDK (run using emulator), the layout always is clickable... eh? I'm really bothered by this.
Could any1 plz tell me how to set a particular text in a TextView as clickable and not the entire text in TextView.At present "clickable=true" works for entire textview and not a particular text in textview.
I am trying to make the images I have clickable so that when they are pressed it will send the user to another page or link. How do I go about this? Currently each row in the gridview has 2 buttons. How will it know which item in the gridview is clicked so that it performs a certain action, specific to the item that was clicked.
I need to display a pretty image of a map of Europe, and I want my app to, e.g. bring up a different activity, when the user clicks each country - each country on the map needs to have a different onClickListener (or equivalent). Essentially, I need to be able to call a different function when the user taps on France rather than Spain in an image such as this:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blank_map_of_Europe_cropped.svg How would I best go about this on Android?
I have a ImageView and draw some things on that view. Now I want to have the position of the click in the onClickListener. Although I think that's not really possible (storing the position in the onTouchListener is not working), I want to ask, if there is any other way to accomplish that? The goal is to have a image with some overlays, that should be clickable. I thought about AbsolutLayout, but that is depracated, so what now?
What I am trying to accomplish is to have clickable hyperlinks in the message text displayed by an AlertDialog. While the AlertDialog implementation happily underlines and colors any hyperlinks (defined using <a href="..."> in the string resource passed to Builder.setMessage) supplied the links do not become clickable. The code...
I'm subclassing InputMethodService to create my own personal keyboard. A lot of stuff already works quite nice. But now I'm playing around with the suggestion bar (also called "candiate view"). For now I'm just trying to load a static layout with one button in it:
So I waste a bit of screen real estate on my Droid with a few photos of my family. I just like to have a photo on each page. I was wondering if anyone has run across a Photo Frame app that is clickable to a defined action like "Call Wife".
Anyone run across an app like that?
Seems like a pretty easy app to write, but I am having a hard time finding one...
I want to create a scrollable map and trigger different actions when the user touches a different areas. With iPhone, it was easy by putting buttons on top of the image. How do I do it in Android? I used a custom view to enable scrolling in both directions. Now how do I make different parts of the image trigger different events on click?
Android is highlighting the links in the TextView, but they do not respond to clicks. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Do I have to set an onClickListener for the TextView in my activity for something as simple as this?
I have a clickable TextView with a drawable as its background. I'm looking for the right way to implement a down-state drawable so the background changes when the user presses down. I have been able to almost perfectly replicate this behavior by listening for MotionEvents and changing the background when the user is pressing down.. The only thing that doesn't match up with system-wide down state behavior here is that if the user keeps holding down and moves their finger off the button, the state remains down until they release their finger from the screen... whereas in Maps overlays or Buttons or ListViews or anything else the state immediately goes back to off when the finger moves from the object.
I have a TextView in my layout which has an attribute "clickable=true" set in XML. This is to allow it behave like a button with both text and icon. Now, I add to that TextView HTML text via call HTML.fromHtml(), and apply Linkify.addLinks after that. The problem is: in such configuration, links are not clickable. Is there any suggestion, how to allow user click on links, other from creating custom TextView-based class?
I have a ViewGroup (LinearLayout) which contains a couple of TextViews and one ImageView. I want to make this entire group clickable. However, clicks on the TextViews or ImageViews or on the area enclosed by the ViewGroup above doesn't result in the handler being called. Any suggestions on how I can make a whole ViewGroup clickable?
The twitter and facebook apps allow you to click on a username which in turn takes you to a new activity. How can this be achieved? I know there is Linkify, but it seems like it can only send you to a browser/phonecall/ etc. How can I make text that are like "@mynamehere" clickable so that it starts a new activity?
I've got a contextual menu that appears when a button is clicked. This menu has some links and after some seconds is hidden again. The problem is that after the menu has disappeared the links are still there. They are not shown but are clickable and the green border appears. And after some seconds they disappear. I've tryied many ways of hiding the menu: display: none, visibility: hidden, width: 0, height: 0, jquery hide, jquery fadeout... but none worked. Also hidding the links. Does anyone have a idea about what's happening? With the rest of the browsers it works without problem
I'm working on maps on Android; i create at runtime overlays and, when clicked, i show a dialog that,when clicked, goes to a new activity; i don't like so much the dialog so i would like to show a smaller clickable object (like in foursquare or in photos application for iphone).has anyone done something similar?
I have a ListView in which each item has a complex layout that contains, at some point, a TextView with android:inputType="text" and android:ellipsize="marquee". My problem is that inputType="text" does something that renders the whole listview item un-clickable.
The reason why I use android:inputType="text" on a TextView is so that it becomes single-line and android:ellipsize="marquee" actually works. I've done my homework: android:singleLine is deprecated android:lines="1", as suggested here, doesn't work, the text still wraps, you just don't get to see the second line, so the marquee effect does not appear.
or is it? My Ctrl+Space in Eclipse says this about android:singleLine (emphasis mine):
Constrains the text to a single horizontally scrolling line instead of letting it wrap onto multiple lines, and advances focus instead of inserting a newline when you press the enter key. * Deprecated: This attribute is deprecated and is replaced by the textMultiLine flag in the inputType attribute. Use caution when altering existing layouts, as the default value of singeLine is false (multi-line mode), but if you specify any value for inputType, the default is single-line mode. (If both singleLine and inputType attributes are found, the inputType flags will override the value of singleLine.). [boolean]
However, the docs do not say anything about any deprecation.
I have a Querry, I am trying to add buttons to the Incall screen. But after adding the buttons, my buttons are not Clickable. That's UI is present in the screen. I am able to select the Buttons using the up down arrow Key. And on pressing OK control is going to my OnClickListener
But I am not able to Click the Buttons directly on the UI. It looks like some kind of Blocking is there for Click events on the Incall Screen, But still I need to get rid of it. Do suggest. What's the possible way?
I've got the following code which gets information from a database and plots it on a map. The information is there and clickable but the actual icon androidmarker is not visable. Why? How do I fix this? code...
I am new on android and working with android version 4.
