Android :: Android - Light Weight Solution To Detect Keypress

Aug 23, 2010

In Android I am writing an application in which, I would like to capture an event if in case user doesn't do any activity (tapping/key press). For better context - It is like session timeout.

Basic solution - I can override the key press/tapping event and put one timer which continuously run either as thread or service. In my opinion this is bit heavier solution in terms of resource.

Android :: Embeddable Light Weight / Simple Webserver?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm looking for an embeddable webserver for an android project I am working on. ijetty is to big for me, I'm just trying to serve some static content don't need an entire servlet container. Something like /javase /6/docs/jre/api/net/httpserver/spec/com/sun would be useful, but probably still overkill for what I need.

Android :: Layout - Weight Not Working

Oct 4, 2009

LinearLayout obeys weight and as per documentation weight gives priority to an object. Here is the layout I have: Here you can see that the first textview has a weight of 2, second has a weight of 0, but still the second text view takes up all the space. If I give the first edit view a weight of 0 and second a weight of 2, surprisingly, first edit view gets more space. Isn't this weird, or am I doing something very wrong. I am poor in layouts. <LinearLayout android:id="@+id/LinearLayout01" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent"

Android :: Alarm Not Working At All On HTC Until Keypress

Dec 2, 2009

My girlfriend recently got the HTC Tattoo (running Android 1.6) and she's having major issues with the alarm on the Clock application. Whenever she sets the alarm to wake up in the morning, it doesnt go off at the desired time. There's no sound or not waking of the screen. The alarm does finally sound when the screen is woken, and this can be 20 minutes or so after the alarm *should* have sounded! It works ok if the alarm is set to go off in 5 minutes time or so, but it seems like Android forgets to ring the alarm until the screen is woken and then does it.Can anyone provide any insight into this issue? I have seen that there are other threads where the alarm doesn't work but they dont cover this behavior.

Android :: Hide Soft Keyboard On Done Keypress?

Aug 5, 2010

I am struggling with the done button on the soft keyboard. I can't get the soft keyboard Done keypress to hide the keyboard. From another button, it works perfectly with imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0);
but the onKeyListener does not function the way I want. When I hit the editText, the soft keyboard shows up and its content is cleared from characters. The main.xml:

<EditText android:id="@+id/answer"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal" android:textSize="36px"
android:inputType="phone" android:minWidth="60dp" android:maxWidth="60dp" />

The Java file:
private EditText editText;...
editText = (EditText)findViewById(;
editText.setOnKeyListener(onSoftKeyboardDonePress); ...
// method not working: private View.OnKeyListener onSoftKeyboardDonePress=new View.OnKeyListener() { public boolean onKey(View v, int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
if (event.getKeyCode() == KeyEvent.FLAG_EDITOR_ACTION) {
// code to hide the soft keyboard
imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); }
return false; } };
private View.OnClickListener onKeyboard=new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) { editText.setText(""); } };

The working method using a button (in the same java file):
private View.OnClickListener onDone=new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) { ....
// code to hide the soft keyboard
imm = (InputMethodManager) getSystemService( Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(editText.getApplicationWindowToken(), 0); } };
When I press key no "9" the keyboard hides.

Android :: Weight Sum - Layout Attributes Not Working

Nov 26, 2009

I have a simple horizontal linear_layout with bunch of image views in it. the trick is that the views have different widths, relative to the size of their parent (the linear layout). I set the layout's weightSum to a 100 and the layout_weight to let's say 10 of one view and 15 of the other, on so on. And it did not work. I also tired using float values setting the weightSum to 1.0 and the layout_weight of the image views to 0.2 and 0.3 and so on. But it didn't work either. I did search this group for any references to the weightSum but found nothing. Any ideas how to handle it?

Android :: Emulator Stuck On Equals Phantom Keypress

Jul 27, 2010

For some reason, and only on my Dell Vostro 1000 laptop, the Android emulator keeps thinking I have the = key pressed and continually emits a string of "=====" equal signs. This happens no matter what I'm doing in the emulator. It responds to my manual keypresses as well, interspersing them. It happens no matter which version of the Android system I run (2.1, 2.2, etc.) Strangely, it happens even running the Android emulator via a remote desktop session where the remote desktop client is the laptop and the server is another PC running the emulator. If I run the emulator on the other PC locally (not remote desktop,) the emulator functions fine!

This problem didn't occur when I first installed the SDK and as far as I know no other software has been installed since then. I tried clicking the "clear user data" from the emulator launcher and still no effect. I have also tried deleting the SDK directory and reinstalling it, but the effect is still there.
Update: I found another application that exhibits this behavior. ScummVM when opening a dialog to save the game also receives these phantom keypresses. It persists in Windows 7.

Android :: Layout Weight Is Inconsistent For Horizontal And Vertical Orientation

Apr 8, 2009

I have played around a bit with the xml files for creating layouts and can't explain the behaviour of layout_weight when using it in a LinearLayout that has orientation="vertical"

When creating a layout that is horizontal everything follows the documentation, that a child would get more space if it's has the highest value.

But the following code for vertical orientation, give more space to the item with lowest weight.


And the question is: Is this a bug or just a feature that maybe need more documentation?

Android :: Overriding Dialog Preference Default Back Keypress

Jul 7, 2010

By default, when in DialogPreference you press back button, it mimics that you've pressed NegativeButton. I'd like to override that but can't find an easy way except to recreate DialogPreference from scratch (which at the moment seems like an overkill), because I'd like that PositiveButton set something, NegativeButton to unset something, and back key to leave things as they were (i.e. to not unset something). I've even tried to override showDialog() but: a) its not simple, b) I don't think I should mess too much with internals of OS supplied code like a bunch of private "m" variables.

Android :: Hiding Keyboard In Override Done Keypress Of Edit Text

Apr 18, 2010

I have used a bit of Android code to override the "Done" button in my EditText field:
myEditField.setOnEditorActionListener(new TextView.OnEditorActionListener() {
@Override public boolean onEditorAction(TextView v, int actionId, KeyEvent event) {
if (actionId == EditorInfo.IME_ACTION_DONE) { mySubroutine();
return true; } return false; } } );

Activating the field calls up the keyboard, and pressing "Done" evaluates mySubroutine() successfully. However, the keyboard no longer goes away when I press "Done". How do I restore this default behavior to the routine?

Android :: Android Layout Error - Relative Widths In Percent Using Weight

May 26, 2010

I am trying to assign relative widths to columns in a ListView that is in a TabHost, using layout_weight as suggested here:Unfortunately, it seems to want to fit all the columns into the space that the button occupies, as opposed to the width of the screen. Or maybe there is another constraint that I do not understand.

Android :: Android Linear Layout - Difference Between Weight & Fill_parent

Jul 23, 2010

According to documentaion, FILL_PARENT basically lets the view take up the entire extra space. Weight also dictates how much of the extra space can be taken by the view. What is the difference? For eg: What happens when I use, new LinearLayout.Layout Params(Layout Params.WRAP_CONTENT,LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, 1.0f)

Android :: Linear Layout And Weight In Android

Apr 23, 2010

I always read about this funny weight value in the Android documentations. Now I want to try it for the first time but it isn't working at all. As I understand it from the documentations this layout: should create two buttons that are horizontally aligned and share the space equally. The problem is the two buttons don't grow to fill the space. The result is something like this: I would like the buttons to grow and fill the whole line. If both buttons are set to fill parent only the first button is shown and fills the whole line.
