Android : Start An Activity WITHOUT It Becoming The Foreground One?

Apr 22, 2010

Is there a way to call startActivity(Intent) without the newly started activity displacing the current one as the active, foreground activity?

If not purely so, are there near approximation to this effect that can be done, such as mimicking a back keypress event right after calling startActivity()? If so, which means is preferred?

Android :: Notified When Foreground (top) Activity (application) Changes

Oct 6, 2010

I want to write a service for Android platform that is notified when the current foreground activity changes. Basically the service should do some tasks only when the top activity changes. Is there any way to subscribe and to be notified when this kind of event occurs? Or there is no possibility and the service should poll from time to time the list of running activities and to check what is the foreground activity ?Not preferable solution...

Android : Get The Current Foreground Activity (from A Service)?

Oct 6, 2010

Is there a native android way to get a reference to the currently running Activity from a service?

I have a service running on the background, and I would like to update my current Activity when an event occurs (in the service). Is there a easy way to do that (like the one I suggested above)?

Android : Inform Activity From A BroadcastReceiver ONLY If It Is In The Foreground

Feb 17, 2010

Maybe it's easy, but I couldn't really figure this out right so far... I got a BroadcastReceiver waiting to get triggered by the AlarmMangager - this works fine.

Now: because the event, if it occurs, needs to refresh some elements on screen of the main Activity, I would like to send an Intent from that background BroadcastReceiver to my Activity - but only if it is currently in the foreground, aka active.

If it is not running or not visible, I don't care - and the last thing I want to do is start the Activity by my intent! I handle repainting of the views in my onResume method, so I don't care at all.

EDIT: my BroadcastReceiver is waiting for alarms that must be notified to the user. So, it must be there and declared in the manifest. The problem is: it will have to decide whether the mentioned Activity is currently up in front or not.

Android : How To Bring An Activity To Foreground (top Of Stack)?

Feb 9, 2010

I defined an activity ExampleActivity.

When my application was launched, an instance of this activity was created, say it is A. When user clicked a button in A, another instance of ExampleActivity, B was created. Now the task stack is B, A, with B at the top. Then, user clicked a button on B, another instance of ExampleActivity, and C was created. Now the task stack is C, B, A, with C at the top.

Now, when user click a button on C, I want the application to bring A to the foreground, i.e. make A to be at the top of task stack, A, C, B.

Android : Webview - OnCreate Always Get Called When Activity Comes To Foreground

Mar 29, 2009

I launch my TestWebView activity. After my web page is loaded, I put the app in the background by pressing the Home key. Then I bring the TestWebActivity back to the foreground. Unexpectedly, TestWebView's onCreate() is called when I bring the activity to the foreground. But onDestroy is never called. This same thing happens every time I tested. It appears the old TestWebView was not completely killed so there are possibly duplicate web clients running.

Android : Create A Surface Object Without A Foreground Activity

Jul 6, 2010

I have a function that needs a Surface object to work. I'd like to be able to call that function from a background Service without starting a foreground Activity. Every Surface source in the API that I can see, though, requires a View that's laid out before the Surface becomes available. Are there other ways to create a Surface that I am missing, and can you point me to them?

Android : Send Touch Events To Foreground Activity

Jul 21, 2010

I'm trying to figure out a way to send touch events to the foreground activity. Essentially I want to write something that allows me to run it from the shell and just say "I touched this co-ordinate", so that I can automate some UI tasks for testing. Essentially what Monkey does, but application agnostic.

I think that android.view.MotionEvent holds the key, but I'm not sure how to run something without view so that I don't interfere with what is on the screen. Perhaps with a service, but I'm unclear how that would work.

Android :: Recent Apps Change In 2.2 / Brings Main Activity To Foreground

Jul 24, 2010

The recent apps display seems to function quite differently from earlier versions on 2.2. Try the following for instance: 1) Open an app 2) Click on something that takes you to another activity in the same app 3) Press the home button 4) Press and hold the home button to get the recent list of apps - select the app you chose in step 1 5) You'll be taken to whatever activity in that app is specified as the main/launcher Activity, rather than the Activity on top of the stack (as it was previously) It makes it appear to the user that the application has exited when the home screen button was pressed. I don't have my app set to clear history on launch or anything like that, and I can replicate it on the emulator and with any app on my device (Contacts, Gmail, Engadget etc) Anyone else notice this? Anyone know any reason for the changes? I must admit I quite dislike the new method.

Android : By Clicking On My App's Launcher Icon, Bring My App To Foreground And Not Launch New Activity

Feb 28, 2010

My app has 2 activities - A and B. From homescreen I launch A, from A I launch B. The activity stack looks like this: A-B. Now I press HOME button, and from homescreen click again on my app icon, which launches A and adds it on top of the activity stack, which now looks like this: A-B-A. But I just want to bring my application to foreground, is that possible in Android?

Android : Multiple Activity Instances Launched By Same Intent. Bring One Uniquely To Foreground?

Nov 12, 2010

I'm struggling with my app that launches multiple instances of the same Activity using the same intent. My main activity is of class type A and it does a startActivity() of two children that are of the same class type B. So we have B1 and B2 launched. If B1 and B2 are both paused (by pushing back button and making sure finish() is not invoked on them so they are truly paused), how can A uniquely bring either B1 or B2 to the foreground again? I do want to launch a new B activity. I want to uniquely bring B1 or B2 to the foreground.

so both B1 and B2 were created like this... Intent intent = new Intent(context, B.class); intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK); startActivity(intent);

Now I want A to bring B1 (or B2) to the foreground/front so I use the below code, but how do I distinguish B1 or B2 when starting the activity? This only brings the last instance of B that was on top to the foreground.

Intent intent = new Intent(context, B.class); intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_REORDER_TO_FRONT); startActivity(intent);

I've tried keeping around references to B1 and B2 and doing something like this, but this also only goes to the last instance of activity class B that was on top...

Intent intent = new Intent(B1context, B.class); intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_REORDER_TO_FRONT); B1context.startActivity(intent);

I even tried this, but it still doesnt get me my unique B1 or B2... Intent intent = B1.getIntent(); // i.e. the original intent that started me startActivity(intent); // still only brings to front the last B that was on top.

Android : Default SMS Activity Result Code Coming As RESULT_CANCELED Even SMS Is Received Successfully

Jul 20, 2010

I am invoking the default SMS activity by using the following code-

intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("sms:")); intent.putExtra("sms_body", "SMSText"); startActivityForResult(intent, 11); //Here 11 is my request code

The SMS activity gets opened in emulator (5554), i type the number 5556 (device number of my second emulator) and click on "Send"

The SMS is received in second emulator(5556) successfully. I click back on 5554 (my SMS generating emulator )and come back to my application. I notice that the onActivityResult method is getting called successfully as desired.

When i check for the result code i get it as RESULT_CANCELED ( 0 ) instead of RESULT_OK (-1). The data is also coming as null.

Android : Determine If One Of My Activities Is In The Foreground

Feb 22, 2010

I have implemented a BroadcastReceiver which is triggered by the AlarmManager. The AlarmManager is initialized on BOOT_COMPLETED. So i have to declare the receiver in the manifest.

My problem is that i want the BroadcastReceiver only to do something when none of my own activities are in the foreground (aka the user is not interacting with my application). I pull information from a remote server and don't want to notify the user if he is currently in my application anyways.

So far i have not managed to find a way to determine if my application is in the foreground. Is there a way to do such thing? The ActivityManager tells me if my application is running but not whether it is in the foreground.

Android : TabWidget White Foreground Color?

Mar 30, 2010

I don't know what I did but for a period of time my TabWidget had white colored tabs which looked really nice. I never set a theme or background/foreground color in my project at all. The next time I compiled it it reverted back to the gray tabs. My application is using the default dark theme. Even if I set the application theme to light, the tabs are still gray. So obviously it was something else that changed the tabs' color. Anyone know how to do this?

Android :: Launch Intent In Background Then Bring To Foreground?

Jul 19, 2010

Is there any way to launch an activity w/ Intents (in this case the Browser) in the background, and then bring it to the foreground using a service or activity?

I know it's possible to bring apps to the foreground by launching an intent with FLAG_ACTIVITY_BROUGHT_TO_FRONT

But is it possible to initially launch the activity in the background?
