Android :: Android - Single Top - Launch Mode And OnNewIntent Method

Nov 10, 2009

I read in the Android documentation that by setting my Activity's launchMode property to singleTop OR by adding the FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP flag to my Intent, that calling startActivity(intent) would reuse a single Activity instance and give me the Intent in the onNewIntent callback. I did both of these things, and onNewIntent never fires and onCreate fires every time. The docs also say that this.getIntent() returns the intent that was first passed to the Activity when it was first created. In onCreate I'm calling getIntent and I'm getting a new one every time (I'm creating the intent object in another activity and adding an extra to it...this extra should be the same every time if it was returning me the same intent object). All this leads me to believe that my activity is not acting like a "single top", and I don't understand why.

To add some background in case I'm simply missing a required step, here's my Activity declaration in the manifest and the code I'm using to launch the activity. The Activity itself doesn't do anything worth mentioning in regards to this:

in AndroidManifest.xml:

code:.........

in my calling Activity:

code:.............

Android :: How To Launch Market Intent In 'Give Feedback' Mode?

May 23, 2010

I have just written a game for the Android market and would like to remind my customers to leave feeback on the market for the application (especially the demo version.) Is there any way to launch the market intent in a mode that will take the user to the feedback / comments section of the page?I already use this approach for linking my demo to the paid app.

Is there a best practice that any Android devs out there might know of?Additionally, is there any way to track referalls from my demo app so that I can try to calculate some kind of a conversion rate? (i.e. how effective the demo app is at generating sales.)

Android : Forward Activity Result To Parent With SingleTop Launch Mode?

Jun 1, 2010

I have two activities: a MainListActivity, and a DetailViewActivity. DetailViewActivity is set with android:launchMode="singleTop".

When clicking an item in the "main list" activity, it launches the "detail view" activity via:

startActivityForResult(detailIntent, REQUEST_CODE_DETAIL);

If I then call setResult(RESULT_OK, resultData); and finish(); from within the Detail activity, that resultData is received by the "main list" activity's onActivityResult(..) method correctly.

However, if I implement a "see previous"/"see next" type of navigation within the Detail activity, and implement it using singleTop, that result no longer gets sent back to the initial activity:

Intent nextItemIntent = this.createIntent(nextId);
nextItemIntent.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_FORWARD_RESULT);
startActivity(nextItemIntent);
// at this point, my DetailActivity's onNewIntent() method is called, and the new data is loaded properly

But from here, when I call setResult(..) and finish(), my MainList activity never receives the new/updated result. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Launch Home Dock Mode While In Car?

Sep 23, 2010

To start, I'll say I've done much searching on my question, both on this forum and others. Plus, I've searched AppBrain using many parameters to no avail.So, that little disclaimer out of the way....I have a DX. My last device was the original Droid. After the upgrade to Froyo on my original Droid, I noticed two really cool and, for me, useful dock functions that do not work with the Froyo upgrade on my DX. Original Droid (w/Froyo): When I would put the Droid in the car dock, there was a nice little icon that said EXIT. Meaning it would go out of car dock completely when you touched it. Even the icon in the top bar would go away. Also, when I hit the home button, say out of Navigation, it would take me to my regular home, vice back to the car dock home. I LOVED this, as I dislike and do not use the car dock mode ever. This icon is non-existent on the Froyo car dock mode on my DX. Next. Again, original Droid (w/Froyo. and I state this because with Eclair, these functions were not there): When plugged in for the night, I would touch my Retro Clock app widget, and (I don't know why, it just did) it would launch the Home Dock screen. (with weather, music icon, etc...) Now this I LOVED also, as I could set my alarm, check the weather where I was at, and even get some news headlines before going to sleep. Plus, it would then go into screen saver mode, dimming the screen nicely. I would like very much to get this kind of functionality back in both instances. Does anyone have any ideas for apps that would kill the car dock mode completely, either permanently, or at least every time I put it in the car dock?And is there some way to launch the home dock mode while in the car dock?I am a truck driver, and the car dock is where I put my X to charge at night.

Motorola Droid :: How To Launch Multimedia Mode Without Dock?

Nov 8, 2009

I bought the car dock and it has served me well thus-far, but I don't really see a reason to plunk down the cash on the home dock. It's nice, but I don't want to buy it right now. However, I do very much like the display that appears when it is docked. I can't find a way to launch this without the dock itself, and I'm certain there has to be a way. What am I missing?

Android :: Single Select Without Checkbox

Feb 27, 2010

I'd like to make a listview that used the ListView.CHOICE_MODE_SINGLE so that the user could only select one thing at a time. However, I want the background to change to the focused color when selected, rather than a checkbox checking off. A good example of what I'm trying to do would be basically any file browser, where the background changes color on each item you select in sequence.

Android :: How To Dismiss Single Select Dialog?

Mar 14, 2009

Thanks for your reminding me of that. JBQ. From the reference of SDK, AlertDialog information as below. I want to create a dialog but I don't want to have any buttons in the dialog, then I hope to dismiss the dialog after i click any item in the dialog, how should I dismiss the dialog? When the user click the "back" button, it will dismiss the dialog. So I need to send the key message in hard code? is there any other way?

public AlertDialog.Builder<http://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/AlertDialog.Builde...>
setSingleChoiceItems (CharSequence[]<http://developer.android.com/reference/java/lang/CharSequence.html>items, int checkedItem, DialogInterface.OnClickListener
<http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/DialogInterfac...>listener)

Set a list of items to be displayed in the dialog as the content, you will be notified of the selected item via the supplied listener. The list will have a check mark displayed to the right of the text for the checked item. Clicking on an item in the list will not dismiss the dialog. Clicking on a button will dismiss the dialog. Parameters items the items to be displayed. Checked Item specifies which item is checked. If -1 no items are checked. listener notified when an item on the list is clicked. The dialog will not be dismissed when an item is clicked. It will only be dismissed if clicked on a button, if no buttons are supplied it's up to the user to dismiss the dialog.

Android :: Updating Single ListView Element?

Mar 29, 2010

In the application I am working on now I came up with the following problem. I have list view which is displaying items with images in most cases it will be different image for different items (thumbnails about 60x60 pixels). So the problem is how can I handle image processing for the view. For know I have the following variants:

1. I can cache all bitmaps and when I try to display view I get bitmap from cache synchronously and display it. The problem is that 60x60=3600x4=14kb per bitmap which is waste of resources.

2. When I need to display view I can register event to some thread to decode the associated bitmap which will decode it in background and than to update gui. This sounds good for me the scrolling is still smooth because all image processing is done in background. Updating list view is bit jerky for now I am doing it view notifyDataSetChanged which is updating all visible views although I can update thumbnail for a single item.

So question one is is there better way the update single listview element than calling notifyDataSetChanged.

Android :: Animate A Single View In Sequence

Aug 18, 2010

I would like to animate a view I have to appear like it was sliding off the screen to the left, and then sliding back to the screen from the right. I've set the duration of the first and the start Off set of the second as 1000, so the second should start right after the first ends. Instead I get their order reversed and I see my view sliding from right into the screen, and then sliding off the screen to the left. Reversing the animations order didn't do anything. Anyone got a clue why is this happening, and how can I do what I want?

Android :: How To Delete Single Message Of A Conversation?

Oct 13, 2010

I dislike G Mail because of the threading and it is SLOW but it would appear to be the only email client on android that can forward html so I'm stuck with it. How in the world do you delete an individual message of a conversation without deleting the entire conversation? When I expand a conversation, the messages have reply, reply all and forward at the bottom of the message but no delete. The delete button at the bottom of the screen (between archive and older) only wants to delete the whole conversation. What am I missing?
