Android :: Activity Which Downloads Data In Background With Service - Doesn't Get Destroyed On Hitting Back Button

Nov 9, 2010

I need to develop an application with downloads the data at the background and update about the progress in the front.

I guess this can be achieved using services and activity and passing data in between the. But, what I need to do is even if I hit back button and then start the activity again. It should check if the service is running or not. If service is not running it should start one else it should display the data from running service.

Something like music player where music is played by a service at a background and activity displays the information. Even on browsing through other activities of the application or hitting back, state of the music player is maintained.

Android :: Back Button Doesn't Go To Previous Activity

Jul 4, 2010

I have two activities. The first is a list where the user selects one of the items which takes them to a second activity showing the details of the item they selected. When the user clicks the back button I want the app to return to the first activity.

Is there anything special i need to do to make this happen?

Right now when I click the back button from the second activity it exits the app just like the home button would.

Here is how I am starting the Second Activity. startActivity(new Intent(getApplication(), SecondActivity.class)); finish();

Android :: Remote Service Destroyed When Main Activity Closed / How To Fix?

Nov 19, 2010

I wrote an android program that: has a main activity for UI, and it starts a service. The service timely callbacks the UI activity to update views. It works fine except: if the activity is closed (with BACK) and start again, the service will also be started again (The service plays audio file, so there are two overlapped sounds). I use bindService with BIND_AUTO_CREATE flag to start and connect to service. According to the document, it should create service only if it doesn't exist, but obviously it starts another instance when opened second time. All I want is when the activity is closed, the service goes on running, and when the activity opens again, it can reconnect to the service. Is that possible? Or I just misunderstand the usage of service?

Android :: How To Override The Back Button So It Doesn't Finish() My Activity

Jun 29, 2010

I currently have an Activity that when it gets displayed a Notification will also get displayed in the Notification bar.

This is so that when the User presses home and the Activity gets pushed to the background they can get back to the Activity via the Notification.

The problem arises when a User presses the back button, my Activity gets destroyed but the Notification remains as I want the user to be able to press back but still be able to get to the Activity via the Notification. But when a USER tries this I get Null Pointers as its trying to start a new activity rather than bringing back the old one.

So essentially I want the Back button to act the exact same as the Home button and here is how I have tried so far:

CODE:.........

However the above code still seems to allow my Activity to be destroyed, How can I stop my Activity from being destroyed when the back button is pressed?

Android : How To Get An EditText Field Prefilled After Hitting Back Button

Jul 4, 2010

I have a setup view where the user can enter their name and email and click done when they are finished which navigates them to another activity1. When they are in activity1, and they hit the soft back button on the phone, it takes them screen where they entered their name and email. However, the name and email EditText fields are blank. In the view where the name and email are entered I looked to see if onStart, onCreate, OnPause, onResume,... where being called after the back button was hit, but they are not. Do you know how I can make it so that the EditText fields have the information that was previously entered.

Android :: Sending Data Back And Forth Between Activity And Service Locally?

Aug 13, 2010

I am a bit new to Android. What I need to do is send data back and forth between an activity and a service locally. The information sent is sensitive and must not be able to be picked up by other apps. This excludes using broadcast and the onBind() function if I understand things correctly? So the activity needs to send some string parameters to the service. Also it somehow needs to tell the service which activity started it so the service can reply to the correct class since many different activities will use this service.

Once the service has fetched the information via a http request it is suppose to send that data (just a long string which will later be parsed) back to the activity that started it. How do I go about doing this? Using static variables/functions is not an option since again many actives will be using this service. Sure it would be possible to use a static array to hold the classes but that just seems ugly. It's only possible to send simple variables (not objects) via the intent? There must be a better way to do this.

Android :: How To Control Activity Flow - Back Button Versus Home Button

Sep 2, 2010

I have 3 activities in my app: Activity1 -> Activity2 -> Activity3. Inside Activity3, if the user presses Back, I would like to return to Activity2. In Activity3's onPause event, I added a finish() statement. That's probably not even necessary, but I wanted to make sure this Activity gets cleaned up. This works fine.
However, while in Activity3, if the user presses Home or starts a new app (through notification bar or some other means), I want both Activity3 and Activity2 to finish. If the user returns to this app, he should resume with Activity1.

I have figured out how to do one or the other, but I can't figure out how to handle both cases, if it's even possible. Can I trap the "Back" button in Activity3 and send a message back to Activity2 telling it not to finish()? It seems like the Activities follow the same lifecycle flow (Pause, Stop) regardless of what you do to send them to the background. Just to answer the question of why I want this behavior, imagine that Activity1 is a login screen, Activity2 is a selection screen, and Activity3 is a content screen. If I press Back from the content page, I want to be able to make a new selection. If I exit via any other means (Home, notification bar), I want the user to be "logged out".

Android :: Update Information In Activity From Background Service?

Mar 18, 2010

I am trying to create a simple Android application that has a ActivityList of information, when the application starts, I plan to start a Service that will be constantly calculating the data (it will be changing) and I want the ActivityList to be in sync with the data that the service is calculating for the life of the app. How can I set up my Activity to be listening to the Service? Is this the best way to approach this problem? For example, if you imagine a list of stock prices - the data would be being changed regularly and need to be in sync with the (in my case) Service that is calculating/fetching the data constantly.

Android :: Pop Up Dialog Or Activity From Service Running In Background When Keyguard Locked?

Nov 19, 2010

I have an application in which there will be a service continuously running in background and on certain conditions service should call an activity or pop-up a dialog. I think this is possible. The question is, in case device keyguard gets on say after 2 minutes of idle time then will the service continue running in background. And what will happen when the condition of opening pop-up or Activity is reached.

Android :: Use An Activity Or A Service When Using A Button In A Widget?

Aug 9, 2010

I have made a Android Widget which displays two articles (title + image). In addition to this, I have buttons for flipping backward and forward through the articles. What I don't understand is how I can change the Widgets RemoteViews when the buttons are pressed. Which should be one of the most basic operations in a widget, however, I can't seem to figure it out.

So... Can I do this with just a OnClickListener in the AppWidgetProvider? Or do I have to create an Activity without a window (visibility = false)?

Android :: AsyncTask Won't Stop Even When Activity Has Destroyed

Mar 27, 2010

I have an AsyncTask object which starts executing when the activity is created and does stuff in the background (downloads upto 100 images). Everything works fine but there is this peculiar behavior which i'm not able to understand.For eg: when the android screen's orientation changes then the activity is destroyed and created again. So I override the onRetainNonConfigurationInstance() method and save all the downloaded data executed in the AsyncTask. My purpose of doing this is to not have AsyncTask run each time activity is destroyed-created during orientation changes, but as i can see in my logs the previous AsynTask is still executing. (The data is saved correctly though)I even tried to cancel the AsynTask in the onDestroy() method of the activity but the logs still show AsynTask as running.This is really strange behavior and would really be thankful if someone can tell me the correct procedure to stop/cancel the AsynTask.

Android :: Getting Data Back From Service?

Jan 12, 2010

I have created an activity that calls a service. This service receive an XML feed and parse the info. Each time I get the info for a new station i want to send the details (Name,Id,Location all as string) back to my main activity so it can load it inside a list view. When I run my code inside the main activity it works. When I move it to a service I cant send the data back. This is what I have tried. After getting the current station info from I do this: submit Station(namer, loc, ids, dis, types); then: private void submit Station(String names, String loca, String idss, String diss, String typess){Intent intent = new Intent(NEW_STATION_LISTING); intent.putExtra("Station Name",names); intent.putExtra("Sid", loca); intent.putExtra("StationLoc", idss); intent.putExtra("Distance", diss); intent.putExtra("Types", typess);send Broadcast(intent);}

Highlight Selected Item Background After Clicking Back Button

Apr 18, 2013

I have to develop one android application.

Here is the scenario:There are many images in a linearlayout. When selected, the layout should be displayed with another(gradient_bg_hover.xml) background. This works well now.

Now, I would like that when I open a new activity and come back to this one, the last selected layout should still be the highlighted one (with the (gradient_bg_hover.xml) background).

Now i have used below code for highlighting the image when pressed:

[HIGH]
LinearLayout ar = new LinearLayout(this);
ar.setOrientation(LinearLayout.VERTICAL);
ar.setPadding(3, 3, 3, 3);
ar.setLayoutParams(artiLayoutParams);
ar.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
ar.setBackgroundColor(Color.parseColor("#666666")) ;

[Code]...

In OnClick function i have wrote the below code:

[HIGH]
private OnClickListener mArticleClick = new OnClickListener()
{
@Override
public void onClick ( View v )
{
int object = v.getId();
v.setSelected(true);

[Code]...

Here i have to clicked one item means it is go to next activity.afterthat i have clicked back button means the selected item is stay on highlighted with another background.afterthat i have selected another item means its go to next activity.now i have to click back button means these item only highlight with background....but the pervious item also highlighted....

I wish to need the o/p like :

The last selected item only highlighted after click the back button...

So i have used sharedpreferences :

I have declared int prevPosition = -1; globally...

[HIGH]
ar = new LinearLayout(this);
ar.setOrientation(LinearLayout.VERTICAL);
ar.setPadding(3, 3, 3, 3);
ar.setLayoutParams(artiLayoutParams);
ar.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);

[Code]...

In Onclick method:

[HIGH]
private OnClickListener mArticleClick = new OnClickListener()
{
@Override
public void onClick ( View v )
{
int object = v.getId();

[Code]...

But my background color is not staying after press the back button...

Android :: Can Service Report Back To Calling Activity With Status

Jun 29, 2010

Is there a way that a Service can report back to the calling activity when the Service has reached a particular stage of processing? Consider a music player activity that initiates the actual music playing in the background as an Android Service. I want to detect and inform the Activity when the Service has reached the Mediaplayer's onPrepared. Is there a way that the Service can tell the calling Activity when the MediaPlayer's onPrepared is called, to let the Activity know that the audio is prepared and ready to play?I am basically looking to see if there is work around, rather than having a thread in the activity, pinging constantly to check if the Service has reached onPrepared.
