Hide App Icon From Android Application List

Nov 1, 2010

Is there any way to hide an application icon from Android applications list ? The application should be downloaded from Market and opened some GUI for configuring my application. I don't want to see any icon of my application in applications list. User should not be able to run it.

By the way I know some way:remove this line from manifest <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" /> But it is not worked for me, because the GUI is not shown.

Android :: How To Hide Application Icon From Desktop?

Jul 6, 2010

I defined an application which is only used from my other application. So I would like to hide the icon of this application, so that the user can't see it on the desktop of his phone (or how do you call the thing where all apps are listed?). My manifest file looks the following way:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="xyz.games.pacman.controller" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH"/>
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".PacmanGame" android:label="@string/app_name" android:screenOrientation="portrait"> <intent-filter>
<action android:name="pacman.intent.action.Launch" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter> </activity>
<receiver android:name="xyz.games.pacman.network.MessageListener">
<intent-filter> <action android:name="xyz.games.pacman.controller.BROADCAST" />
</intent-filter> </receiver> </application> <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" /> </manifest>

I already read this question:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1063604/how-to-hide-an-application-icon-in-android-emulator
But if I just remove the line
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
in my manifest, the activity isn't working at all (ActivityNotFoundException in the calling activity). I already tried android.intent.category.EMBEDDED but this doesn't work too. In the Internet I found CommonsWare answer http://osdir.com/ml/Android-Developers/2010-06/msg03617.html that it can be done using PackageManager. Unfortunately, it isn't explained how exactly and I couldn't find a solution by browsing the PackageManager API.

Android : Way To Hide Application's Icon From Main Menu?

Jun 24, 2010

I want to hide my application icon from main menu at the run time. I believe that a filter with category Launcher in the application's manifest file is responsible for the application's presence in the main menu. Is there any way to change the category at run time? or any other way to hide the icon from main menu?

Android :: Speed Of SQLite Vs List Contains For "in-set" Icon On List Rows

May 9, 2010

An application I'm developing requires that the app main a local list of things, let's say books, in a local "library." Users can access their local library of books and search for books using a remote web service. The app will be aware of other users of the app through this web service, and users can browse other users' lists of books in their library. Each book is identified by a unique bookId (represented as an int). When viewing books returned through a search result or when viewing another user's book library, the individual list row cells need to visually represent if the book is in the user's local library or not. A user can have at most 5,000 books in the library, stored in SQLite on the device (and synchronized with the remote web service). My question is, to determine if the book shown in the list row is in the user's library, would it be better to directly ask SQLite (via SELECT COUNT(*)...) or to maintain, in-memory, a List or int[] array of some sort containing the unique bookIds.

So, on each row display do I query SQLite or check if the List or int[] array contains the unique bookId? Because the user can have at most 5,000 books, each bookId occupies 4 bytes so at most this would use ~ 20kB. In thinking about this, and in typing this out, it seems obvious to me that it would be far better for performance if I maintained a list or int[] array of in-library bookIds vs. querying SQLite (the only caveat to maintaining an int[] array is that if books are added or removed I'll need to grow or shrink the array by hand, so with this option I'll most likely use an ArrayList or Vector, though I'm not sure of the additional memory overhead of using Integer objects as opposed to primitives).

Android :: Possible To Hide Application Permissions From User?

Jul 11, 2010

I am wanting to know if a developer has the ability to choose not to display the permissions needed for an app they create. For an example if there is a note taking app in the market that says no permissions needed, but in reality, it does have "internet access"capabilities not shown to the user/downloader, Is it possible for App permissions to be hidden and not displayed to the user? Can someone explain to me the process on assigning and displaying permissions on android apps?

Android :: Any Way To Hide Certain Application Permissions / Inbuilt File Manager?

Jul 3, 2010

I was wondering, is there anyway a developer can hide or exclude a certain app permissions from being seen by Android market users? And are the permissions for an app controlled or regulated by Google? Another question I have - Is there anyway to restrict PDF files from opening in the default browser? This is a problem when I am on a search engine and accidentally click a link that's a pdf file- I don't want pdf's downloaded without asking me permission atleast. And my last question, is there a way to view current extensions that are installed in the browser.? Where is androids inbuilt file manager? Does uninstalling an application completely take off everything related to that app from your phone?

Android :: How To Assign Each List Items An Individual Icon?

Oct 24, 2010

I'm very new to Android and Java development, searching and reading various tutorials and using different parts of code from around the internet, trying to make sense of it as I go. Currently I have a list created with 4 list items, what I'd like to do is assign a different icon to each of these list items, however, I've no idea how to do it, nor do I know what to search for. Here's the code:

main.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/ android" android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<ListView android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:id="@+id/mainListView"> </ListView>
</LinearLayout> row.xml
<TextView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android
android:id="@+id/rowTextView" android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:padding="10dp" android:textSize="16sp" >

</TextView> FirstList.java
import java.util.ArrayList; import java.util.Arrays;
import android.app.Activity; import android.os.Bundle; import android.widget.ArrayAdapter; import android.widget.ListView; public class FirstList extends Activity {
private ListView mainListView; private ArrayAdapter<String> myListAdapter;
/** Called when the activity is first created. */ @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.main);
mainListView = (ListView) findViewById( R.id.mainListView);
String[] myList = new String[] {"List 1", "List 2", "List 3", "List 4"};
ArrayList<String> listObjects = new ArrayList<String>();
listObjects.addAll( Arrays.asList(myList));
myListAdapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, R.layout.row, listObjects);
mainListView.setAdapter(myListAdapter);
} }
