Motorola Droid :: Orientation Change Hang-ups

Jan 27, 2010

I get a text, pull my phone out of the belt holster.....and read it in normal orientation. With the phone unlocked, I read the text(s) and decide to respond. About 75% of the time, it either takes 5-10 seconds to change orientation when I go to horizontal mode......or it won't even switch at all. It gets so frustrating I feel like throwing the phone.

Fwiw, a quick slide to expose the hardware keyboard will quickly change to horizontal orientation, but sliding it closed brings it back to default orientation, and doesn't seem to affect the speed of orienting back to horizontal.

Motorola Droid X :: Hang Up Icon Unresponsive - Hang Up Call Quickly

Jul 19, 2010

This has happened to me several times in slightly different cases. Several times I've mistakenly placed calls to the wrong people (due to just messing around with the phone).

In a panic, I pressed the "back" button thinking that it will cancel the call. It didn't. I also tried the "home" button. Also no good.

I had to drag down the notifications bar to see the phone call in progress and finally access the red Hang Up button. That worked. The problem is that is is SLOW. And worse, one time the phone would not respond to the button press until after several tries (maybe the CPU was busy on something).

Anycase, that would appear to be a major problem with all these touchscreen-only smartphones - lack of a physical Hangup button.

Is there any workarounds to this? Perhaps some sequence or combo of the existing physical buttons to forcefully hangup an errant call?

Motorola Droid :: Any Way To Make Home Screen Change Orientation?

Nov 11, 2009

Is there a way to make the home screen change orientation with the accelerometer? On my phone, it will only change when I pull out the physical keyboard, which is not really what I'm looking to do most of the time.It changes just fine in all other applications, but the home screen doesn't. Is this a flaw with my phone or a design decision?

Motorola Droid X :: Change Orientation Limits / Bottom Keys To Left

Jul 16, 2010

First post here. First Android phone as well. Picked up the X yesterday and am enjoying it. One quick question though, can I not turn the phone to the right (bottom keys to the left) to change the orientation? Things only turn when I turn the phone left or straight up, not right or upside down.

Android :: Orientation Change - Dialog Above Activity With Fixed Orientation

May 14, 2009

I have created an activity for my game which handles all orientation changes by itself and has a fixed "portrait" layout. Actually it uses the accelerometer and is rendered using 2D canvas methods. If the level has been completed I show up a highscore dialog in which the user can enter his name. The dialog is floating above the underlying level screen which gets blurred out nicely. This generally works.

Problem is that the dialog does not get rotated if the orientation of the phone changes. So even if the keyboard is exposed the dialog is shown in portrait mode instead of landscape. I have tried to use an activity with dialog theme instead but the behavior didn't change. After several tries it seems that I have found the reason for this: Once there's an activity with fixed orientation in the activity stack then all subsequent activities keep this orientation, too. They will not react on orientation changes anymore (e.g. if the keyboard gets exposed).

After upgrading to 1.5 SDK the described behavior changed a little bit. Now at subactivities indead react on orientation changes like expected. However, the need to have an opaque background! That means that neither dialogs nor activities with dialog theme will work. Those will stick with the orientation of the underlaying activity. So my workaround is to first start a sub-activity with an opaque black background. This activity then shows my highscore dialog on top. It looks quite okay but I wonder if there's a better solution? Is it possible to show a dialog above a fixed portrait or landscape activity which automatically adapts to orientation changes?

Motorola Droid :: Not Able To Hang Up After Call

Nov 11, 2009

Sometimes after I am done with a call the screen is black and I click on the screen to get it to light up so I can end the call with no results. I than push the little top button to turn on the phone by than the call has confused the voicemail I am leaving and I have to redo the message. I am leaving or push 1 or 2 go through all of that. Anyone else with the black screen and having to "unlock" the device issues? I want to never push that button on the top unless I lock it.

Motorola Droid X :: Cannot Hang Up Phone Call When Outdoors

Aug 25, 2010

When on a phone call outdoors and I want to hang up, I pull the phone away from my face and the display stays black. The proximity sensor is not sensing that I've moved it away from my face. I can't hang up the call. If I hold the phone above my head with the display facing toward the ground the display comes right back.

It works perfectly indoors. I've compared this to another phone and the other worked perfectly. I've read that the UV rays from the sun can interfere with the proximity sensor. Verizon does not recognize this as a problem but if you Google it you will see this problem goes way back.

Android :: Change Intent Bundle Data Before Activity Recreated After Orientation Change

Jul 30, 2009

I have a notification that starts my activity and passes a messages using the intent's putExtra() function. The message is then displayed to the user in the activity's onCreate function. When the application is restarted due to a orientation change, the message is shown again as it is still in the intent's bundled data.
How can I remove the extra data?

I tried the following:

Bundle bundle = getIntent().getExtras();
if (bundle.getBoolean("showMessage")) {
// ... show message that is in bundle.getString("message")
// remove message
bundle.remove("showMessage");
}

But the message will still be shown after the orientation changed, seems like the intent used is not the one I changed, but the original one. The only workaround I found is to save the showMessage additionally in onSaveInstanceState(). Is there another way? Or is this the way to go?

Change Orientation At Run Time

May 14, 2014

I am new to Android development and in general mobile phone app development. I am trying to make an app which uses jpeg images as background. What should my image resolution be for it to be full screen? (eg. 1920x1080, 1280x720, 640x480, etc) Is it device specific?

I read about the resources and how you can place resources in 'drawable' folders and then Android selects the best match. But does it adjust the resolution when you change orientation at run time (tilt device)? Is there a setting in the manifest file for this? I set android:screen Orientation= "land scape" in the activity. Also does it crop the image if it is too large or adjusts it to fit on the screen?

Android :: Screen Orientation Change

Oct 8, 2009

I notice when using the emulator that when the screen is flipped, I get a following logcat message:

INFO/WindowManager(589): onOrientationChanged, rotation changed to 1

How can I catch this in the code? I want to know whenever the orientation changes. I assume I have to set a listener, but I can't find an example anywhere.

Android :: Possible Leak In Orientation Change

Jul 1, 2009

My app *sometimes* when orientation change, leaks Activities (getInstanceCount() increases from time to time) and i cannot figure out where references to my Activity or rather Context are kept - tried to use jhat but it couldn't help me much.

what is strange: it doesn't always happen on orientation change, so its even harder to fix.

btw when doing normal app life cycle - start, do something, exit - everything is ok - getInstanceCount() always returns 1.

Android :: OnCreate And Orientation Change

Apr 28, 2010

I have an activity that checks stuffs online when it's created (is the GPS on and if not it asks if the user wants to turn it on).

The problem I'm having is that it is also doing it everytime I change the orientation of the screen.

I've read some comments on onConfigurationChanged() but is there a better way to be sure I'm checking the GPS only when the activity is first created?

Motorola Droid :: Keyboard Orientation Bug

Jan 21, 2010

It would be sweet if the Droid (or OS 2.0.1 as the case may be), when switching orientation from portrait to landscape, would keep the keyboard showing if it was already showing in the prior orientation.Often, I'll be typing a text in portrait mode and then realize that I'd prefer to type faster and more accurately.However, when I switch to landscape orientation, I have to click/highlight the text box in order for the virtual keyboard to show again.It's a bit of a hassle.Oh yeah, for the hardware keyboard lovers out there that suggest I use it instead.I hate the hardware keyboard.though curiously,the keypad is pretty nice for moving the cursor.
