Android :: AppWidget Layout Troubles With Ellipsize

Jul 29, 2010

I'm writing an app-widget that displays some numbers, each with label in front of it.

The layout looks like this:

| Label1 | AAAAAAAAAAA |
| LongerLabelLabel2 | BBBBBBB |
| LongLabel3 | CCCCCCCCCC |

There is one outer (vertical) LinearLayout, and each row is a horizontal LinearLayout with two TextViews.

The problem is that the numbers get ellipsized if the width of the label and the number is too wide for the widget. I want the labels to get ellipsized.

The above situation for instance, would end up like this:

| Label1 | AAAAAAAAAAA |
| LongerLabelLabel2 | BBBB... |
| LongLabel3 | CCCCCCCCCC |

instead of the desired

| Label1 | AAAAAAAAAAA |
| LongerLabelL... | BBBBBBB |
| LongLabel3 | CCCCCCCCCC |

I can't for my life figure out how to solve this. Any help is appreciated.

My current layout is the following:

Android :: AppWidget Layout Resetting After Device Restart

Aug 15, 2010

I have a simple appWidget that displays an image. The image is selected in the configuration activity and the widget is updated via the remove view. This is done on a button push executing the code below:

Intent intent = new Intent(context, KidDialog.class);
PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, intent, 0);
widgetView.setOnClickPendingIntent(, pendingIntent);
widgetView.setImageViewUri(, selectedImage);
appWidgetManager.updateAppWidget(appWidgetId, widgetView);
Intent resultValue = new Intent();
resultValue.putExtra(AppWidgetManager.EXTRA_APPWIDGET_ID, appWidgetId);
setResult(RESULT_OK, resultValue);

As you can see, it is also seeing an PendingIntent for the onClickListener of the image. I don't think that is relevant here. Anyway, this work great. The widget does exactly what I want it to. Until I restart the device. When I restart the widget loads with the default view from the xml in the apk. It does not keep the image update from the initial configuration. My questions is how do I get the widget to load back up after a restart with the updated view set during the configuration activity? I will also need to reset the onClick Pendingintent, but I will save that for later.

Android :: Get Ellipsize To Work On A Multiline TextView?

Jun 10, 2009

I have a couple questions on ellipsize on the TextView...

1) Is there anyway to get ellipsize to work on a multiline TextView? So that the ellipses are shown at the end of the text, rather than at the end of the line? If not what is the best way to handle this on my own?]

2) Is there any way to change the character used for eellipsize? For example, use "... [Read More]", this obviously coincides with question 1 above since one wouldn't want to take half of the single line to say read more, but on a multiline, it would be nice to be able to have like 3 or 4 lines and then a read more? Maybe there is a better way to do this that I haven't figured out yet?

Motorola Droid X :: Gameloft Games Troubles On X

Aug 19, 2010

I was wondering if anyone was running any Gameloft games on their X? I downloaded Let's Golf and it works on the X fine, except there is no sound.I reinstalled twice and nothing. The sound worked once the first time I installed it in the intro, and then it stopped. Next time I reinstalled it, nothing, no sound. Media volume is up all the way and everything. Anyone have a problem like this?Or anyone have success with other Gameloft games on their X? Besides the sound issue, the game is very fun, and very smooth on the X.

Motorola Droid :: Battery Troubles Is It Rom Or Kernal?

Jul 20, 2010

I installed my first custom rom and kernal yesterday and unfortunately I'm having some battery problems. I left my phone on for 7 hours idle and it only has about 80% left.

The rom i used is BB .4, Kernal is Chevy ULV 1gig

My idle temp is 26c, basic use temp is 36c (browsing, right after quadrant use), is that high?

The usage breakdown is:

Total time on: 6hrs 52 m

Phone Idle: 26% 6hrs 43 min
Cell Standby 20% 6 hrs 49 min
LauncherPro 16% 5m 56s
Android System 12% 4m 32s
FlipClock Blackout 9% 3m 31s
Voice Calls 8% 1m 35s
Display 7% 6m 7s

If it is the kernal then i have to go back to stock right? because ULVs use the least amount of power?

During installation of rom and kernal, i did the wipe data/cache stuff. I also installed a custom boot animation. lots of stuff to do on my first day.

Android :: Why Setting TextView.Ellipsize As Marquee Cause Its Sibling View In Linearlayout Redraw

Feb 3, 2010

We are using TextView's Ellipsize function to scrolling text in it and there many other controls in our window. We noticed CPU would go up to 50% if text started scrolling. After digging deeper, we found all controls in our layout kept drawing when texts scrolling. We wonder why? And how to avoid all controls redrawing?

Android : Way To Make Ellipsize - "marquee" Always Scroll?

Dec 1, 2009

I want to use the marquee effect on a TextView, but the text is only being scrolled when the TextView gets focus. That's a problem, because in my case, it can't.

I am using:


Is there a way to have the TextView always scroll its text? I've seen this being done in the Android Market app, where the app name will scroll in the title bar, even if it doesn't receive focus, but I couldn't find this being mentioned in the API docs.

Android :: AppWidget Changes Id After Reboot

Dec 31, 2009

I have a strange problem, on a few devices. I have developed an AppWidget, and it uses a database to store the configuration for each instance of the widget. The widget id is the key in the database.Everything works on most devices, but I got a bug report a couple of days ago. A user said that the widget never worked after reboot. The user who was very helpful sent me a log from his phone, and I could then see that the widget got a new id each time he did a reboot.

Android :: Trying To Update An AppWidget Manually

Sep 7, 2010

I am trying to update an AppWidget manually when a user setting changes on the device.I can tell that my AppWidget onUpdate method is being called as a result since I log some debug strings to logcat in the code. However the AppWidget itself doesn't change on the screen.Here comes the interesting part: if I rotate my device and force a refresh of the home screen (from PORTRAIT to LANDSCAPE or vice-versa) then finally my AppWidget gets updated. However rotating the device does not trigger the onUpdate method to be called, so the AppWidget must be using the RemoteViews provided in the earlier update. Can somebody explain me what to do to force the home screen redraw of my AppWidget when it processes an update?

Android :: What Is Sprint Hero AppWidget?

Nov 4, 2009

I wrote a widget that has been working fine for most folks. However, I started getting bug reports about how the widget would be blank on reboot (not receive an update?), and it seemed that the Sprint Hero continually came up. I thought I was crazy but I'm finding that other people are having the same problems:Searching Google for "sprint hero appwidget problems" yields:"Added warning about the problem on the Sprint Hero device: On the Sprint Hero (HTC ROM the AppWidget API is broken in such a way that it won't."I e-mailed the author in hopes of getting an answer, but I haven't received any response. Does anybody with a Sprint Hero know what the problem is?

For Ex- I need to load two dial png's based on AM or PM.

Android :: Do Network Operations In Appwidget?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm developing a Android AppWidget for my application. For updating my appwidget I need to download data from network. But when I try to do that in onUpdate method, my appWidget is killed by Android system. I learnt that time consuming operations can't be done in receivers so I launched a service from onUpdate method and launched a thread from that. But still the problem persists.
Can anyone please let me know how to do network operations in Appwidget?

Android :: Way To Get User Input In An AppWidget

Apr 15, 2009

I've been looking at the new 1.5_pre SDK today, and the new AppWidget API in particular. I was hoping to write a widget for posting to Twitter as part of my nanoTweeter app. The interface I had in mind would look very similar to the Google Search widget, with an EditText and a submit Button, but as far as I can see there's no way to get at user input in a RemoteViews. Is that right, or am I overlooking something?

Android :: Getting Preferences In AppWidget Provider

Apr 30, 2010

I seem to be having trouble reading preferences from my AppWidgetProvider class. My code works in an Activity, but it does not in an AppWidgetProvider. Here is the code I am using to read back a boolean:

SharedPreferences settings = getSharedPreferences(PREFS_NAME, 0);
boolean autoreplyon = settings.getBoolean("autoreplyon", false);

However, I get the "The method getSharedPreferences(String, int) is undefined for the type widget" error (widget is the name of my AppWidgetProvider class).
