Sprint HTC Hero :: On Home Screen Long Press Menu Key Function?
Nov 15, 2009
I tried searching for this, to no avail, but here is the situation. I was on my main Home screen and just trying to figure stuff out and when I long press the menu key it brings up the onscreen keyboard. I figured it was for contact search or something, but it did nothing when I typed...or so I thought. Now everytime I back out to the Home screen a little transparent "window" displays with letters i first typed. I cant type new letters to display or even use the backspace key to erase. Any one know what Im talking about?
It seems like almost every time that I unlock my phone, one of the icons on the home screen is selected (long press, like I was intending to move it or trash it). Using Launcher Pro, if that might be causing it. I don't think it was doing this before the last Sprint update, but don't know if that's the cause either.
I have x10 mini 2.1 since I updated to 2.1 any long press on home screen or corner icons goes directly to edit either widgets or icons depending wich screen I have up.This is anoying because many times I press just a little too long and for example end up in the edit icons mode instead of opening messages like I wanted to. Is there anyway to get this as it was on 1.6? Long press didnt open edit, the only way to open edit was trough menu key.
I have noticed the long press no longer working.When I press and hold it will perform a short press. For example, when trying to long press on an icon to move it, it will open the application.I have noticed this only when charging the device. Anyone else have notice this strange behavior?
How can I capture a long press of the device menu button in my application?I thought of an intent filter, but there's only an action called android.intent.action.SEARCH_LONG_PRESS, but nothing for the MENU button.I found that long press of the menu button actually does different things on different devices,i.e. on Nexus One it will show the soft keyboard, while on Samsung Galaxy S it will pop up the search widget.
I have a ListActivity and I want to implement context menu for each of the list elements. I know that the common way to do this is to show the context menu on long click/tap. I want to know if there is a way to show the context menu for each element on a key press(preferably the menu key).To rephrase my question, how can I trigger the context menu and not the options menu by pressing the menu key(or any other key).
I have a situation where I have some textview on a framelayout that I have a onTouch event wired in order to simulate dragging. I alos want to enable the ability to have a context menu display when the user long presses the textview. Now that I have implemented the context menu functionality dragging no longer works since the longpress is always served by the context menu event.Does anyone know of a workaround for this.
I need to add an action in the Context Menu that pops up after a Long Press of a Link in the Browser (the one that has 'Open','Open in new window','Bookmark link','Save link', etc.)As a result of choosing my action it should call my service and etc.I don't want my app to overwrite all the context menu of the browser but only add an action to it.I haven't found any information on how to do this. Is it possible?
I have list activity with custom array adapter and I can't to get context menu when make long press on list item.
<TabWidget android:id="@android:id/tabs" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"/> <FrameLayout android:id="@android:id/tabcontent" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:padding="5dp"> <ListView android:id="@+id/list" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" /> Why I do not see context menu? What I do wrong? How to get context menu with array adapter and ListActivity.
Is long pression the home button and removing open/recent apps "killing" the apps? I read that there is no need to "kill" an app and it actually uses more battery life than it saves. Should I be actively swiping away recent apps?
So oddly enough my wife's Eris does not let her long press ANY of the bottom two rows of app icons/widgets. I can long press any of the top two rows apps/widgets fine to remove or add in an empty space. but the bottom two rows I can't remove or add with a long press.anyone else have this issue? I'm trying to figure out whats new but she isn't that into her phone so she never installs stuff on it, im the one tweaking and playing with her phone and I haven't touched it in a week this started happening randomly 2 days ago.
i just got my note 2 and week ago and until yesterday when i hold down the home button to get to my tasks manager it wont work. Ill hold it down but it will vibrate but nothing comes up -_- im not sure if i turned something off or if its broken. anything i should try before i go to the verizon store or something?
I have just got my hero back from RMA with a new screen. (the old one was fubar). But now the back button is bringing me the homescreen. And not the last screen. So if I browse my settings, and go 4 screens in. I want the back button to bring me to screen 3 (like it used to), and not to the home screen.
I find now that the music player exits when I press either the "Home" or "Menu" buttons at the bottom of the phone if I want to run another application while listening to a song/podcast. Again, this is really annoying. I can't start up a podcast, then text/email someone. The music player exits.
Whenever I am using any app and press the home button, the home screen blacks out for a few secs and it takes around 10 sec to get all the icons back and before I can start using my phone again. I am using a non rooted mytouch 3g.
This problem does not happen if I exit an app by pressing the back button. It becomes very annoying at times.
- plug in headset - lock screen - press headset button for several seconds
- No reaction, Google Now / Voice Actions not launched - Manually unlock screen - Long press with unlocked screen correctly launches Voice Search
What you think the correct behaviour should be:
Long press of headset button should launch Google Now / Voice Actions even with locked screen. Having to dig the phone out of your pocket in order to launch Voice Actions with a headset e.g. to place a call kinda defeats the purpose of using Voice Actions in the first place.
Adding insult to injury: long press is not broadcast to other applications because of Google Now, so it can't even be put to good use e.g. as volume control.
This was open and ignored by code. [URL]... Issue 48616
I just followed the instructions in the stickies root message and boom - I'm rooted. Flashed with Fresh 1.1. Can anyone direct me to somewhere on how to customize the screens? Also, there are a couple of new icons at the top of my home screen - an "E" inside a circle and after a phone call, I get a green circle in the notification bar.
A couple of times today I have taken the Hero out of my pocket to find that it is unlocked and doing something (first time it tried to send an SMS to a black number and then it had loaded the browser) which is weird because I didn't think it would be able to use the touch screen while in my pocket.I'm guessing that it managed to unlock itself by pressing the menu button twice while in my pocket, but this does seem unlikely - anyway I activated the unlock pattern and it hasn't done it since, so my question is it possible to disable the ability to double-press menu to unlock it? (It's rooted if that makes it possible).It's always possible that I just didn't lock the phone either of those times, but that seems more unlikely. Has anyone else noticed this problem?
I forgot what i clicked on but it asked me "complete action using" then it gave me three choices to choose from which were
Default home HTC sence Forgot the third
This is referring to the homescreen and the default home is what the defualt android home screen looks like and HTC sence is what i need. I clicked on the Defualt home and now my home screen looks different. How do i get that option to pop up again so I can choose HTC sence?
