Android :: Adding Labels To Points On Map?

Jan 6, 2010

I'm trying to add a label to each of the points on a map that I've created. Setting the "title" and "snippet" values of the OverlayItem don't seem to automatically cause these labels to appear however. I would've thought this would be a pretty simple and common requirement. Am I missing something? Can someone tell me if there's a function that does this?

General :: Block Settings - But Allow Adding Access Points?

Nov 13, 2013

I use an AppLocker on my daughter's phone. It works great, but there is one problem it causes.I need to keep her and others out of the settings so it's blocked. But I need to be able to allow her to add access points so she's not eating away our data plan.

Is there an App Locker that will allow this? Or is there an alternative Wifi manager that I could install and allow that would work even when settings is blocked?

Android :: Map Overlay Labels - Display Name Of Location

Mar 15, 2010

I am building a MapView and I want my custom overlay items to display the name of the location they are marking when the user taps them, like the Android Maps app. I setup the onTap listener and the floating TextView to hold the location name. I still need to set it up so that it redraws the label when the user moves the map, etc. Anyway, I am wondering if I am reinventing the wheel here. Is there a built-in method I am unaware of? I would think that most implementations of MapView have labels. For reference, my implementation so far: in map xml:

<LinearLayout android:id="@+id/mapBubbleWrap" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
andoid:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_alignParentTop="true">
<TextView android:id="@+id/mapBubble" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:visibility="gone"
android:background="#ffffff" android:textColor="#ff0000"/>

in my extended ItemizedOverlay:
public boolean onTap(int index) { this.setFocus( mOverlays.get(index) ); return true; }
in my Activity onFocus:
public void onFocusChanged( ItemizedOverlay overlay, OverlayItem item ) {
if( item != null) { mapBubble.setText(item.getTitle());
Point newPoint = mapView.getProjection().toPixels(item.getPoint(), null);
mapBubbleWrap.setPadding(newPoint.x, newPoint.y-10, 0, 0);
mapBubble.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE); } }

Android :: Check New Google Mails Archived To Labels?

May 25, 2010

I am new to Android. I plan to check for new mails on Google Mail (GMail) that are archived to their labels. Are there any examples that'll show how to do this (Gmail API, etc.?)? I searched a lot but found no helpful information about this, hope someone can help. What do I need?

Is there a way to check (with push) whether there are new mails in a label. I think the standard Gmail Android app could not do this!?

Android :: How To Install Folder Organizer / Icon Labels On Phone?

Jun 30, 2010

I just installed Folder Organizer Lite on my Desire in order to be able to change the icons on my home screen. It worked like a charm, but now I have a question. I am able to edit the name of the icons, for example I have changed Advanced Task Killer to ATK, but I would like to have the option to not have any text at all. When I go to alter the text as usual and just delete the text, nothing changes. So does anyone out there know how to completely remove text from underneath icons?

Android :: Text Boxes / Labels Buttons Shrink In Size

Mar 2, 2010

I designed the user interface of my app on the emulator and then I installed it on the Nexus one. For some reason the text boxes, labels buttons etc. have shrink in size. It looks as if the view has been zoomed out on the phone. If I arrange it correctly on the phone the objects don't fit on the emulator. Has anyone faced this? Is there some setting to have consistency between the look of the emulator and Nexus One.

Android :: How To Create ListView Disabled Item Labels For Sections?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a customized Cursor based adapter for my ListView. Each Cursor has a few columns of data, sorted by the priority column. I know you can create a disabled list item to act as a sort of header, like in the Market app (the little green labels). What I would like to do is display a header for each group of items with a different priority. They are already sorted by priority. Example data:
title, priority
note1, high
note3, high
note2, low
note4, low

Example of what I want in ListView:
= High Priority =
= Low Priority =

Android :: Difference In MapView Elements Size (Street Labels)

Mar 27, 2010

Comparing a MapView as used in an app through Google Maps API against the Google Maps app, I found that the granularity of all elements, most visibly, street labels, in Google Maps is bigger than the street labels in MapView. This is on a Nexus One, presumably other devices show a similar behavior. I did not find any hint in the documentation how to dial this for a MapView.

May 5, 2009

I am trying to write a code about catch lat. and long. points with the GPS, actually I am using the shell with the commands "geo fix" because the DDMS doesn't work in linux apparently, I am using this scripts:

Android :: Displaying Route Between Two Points On Map

Dec 6, 2009

I'm trying to develop an application which display the locations of contacts on a map (a Msn-like but for geo-localisation). I search to display a route between my own location and a contact location I want to join but I find yet no solution to do this. In the Android API and Maps add-on API I just find classes to display and listen Location, Distance, GeoPoint, etc., but no possibility to display a route between two points. Is it possible or not provided by the API?

Android :: Support For More Touch Points?

May 23, 2010

Has anyone checked to see if 3 or more points will show up on an Incredible? I'm trying to see if there's hardware/driver/android support for more touch points. Why more touch points? I dunno. It could be cool for something. I read that the physical screen supports 10 but my first tests printing MotionEvent.getPointerCount() only give me 2.

HTC EVO 4G :: Any Way To Disable Application Icons Labels?

Jul 2, 2010

Hello everyone. Is there a feature or a check box that I am missing that allows you to turn off the little text labels beneath the application icons on the home screen? I'm kind of doubtful, but a search did not return an answer. It would certainly clean up the home screen. Plus a lot of labels are "cut off" due to length and that is just annoying.

HTC EVO 4G :: Gmail Labels Order Or Filter?

Sep 1, 2010

We have used a Google domain and provided mail (gmail) for some time. Have quite a number of labels in use to file things. Only a few labels I need synced to my EVO. Inbox is obvious and is at the top of the list so easy to find etc. Problem is that the 4 or 5 others that I use regularly are all down the list in alpha order. Is there anyway to reorder the list of labels to bring the sync'd ones to the top or to filter so non-synced labels do not show in the list? Or perhaps shortcuts I could build on my home page to go directly to other than inbox?

Android : Physical Size Of Font In Points

Aug 3, 2010

I have two devices - HTC Tattoo and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. One has 145 DPI, the other 245 DPI.

When I specify font size for a TextView in points, like this:


I get different physical size of text on these two devices. On 245 DPI, the text is barely readable.

Now, "pt" size is supposed to be physical. I.e., in my test, both text blocks should have letters of the same physical height. Which is not the case.
