Android :: AsyncTask And Queries

Dec 27, 2009

Can anyone point me to a good example where a AsyncTask queries a local SQLite database and then updates the UI successfully. I have a database which I query using doInBackground... create a new custom SimpleCursorAdapter (overriding onViewBind), return the adapter (SimpleCursorAdapter), then in postExecute() create ListView adapter which is set to the the SimpleCursorAdapter, that was returned, then I set the listview adapter using SetAdapter(adapter);...

For some reason I throw an exception on

Android :: Instance Variable Of Activity Not Being Set OnPostExecute Of AsyncTask - Return Data From AsyncTask

Jul 28, 2010

I'm trying to figure out the correct way to create an AsyncTask to retrieve some data from the internet and then to take that data and bundle it up in an Intent and pass it to a new activity(A list display). So in the first activity I just have an EditText and Button. In the event of an OnClick the task should be called and when it is finished the data should be bundled inside an Intent and passed to the next Activity. The problem is when I take the results from onPostExecute and set them to an instance variable of the main activity, that instance variable is still null when the task is complete. Here is the barebones version of the code:


When I debug the application I see onPostExecute does contain a valid PlacesList full of results, so why is the instance variable places set to null after the task is executed? I am going about "returning data" from an AsyncTask incorrectly?

Android :: Run Two SQL Queries Simultaneously

Nov 5, 2009

I start a long-running SQL SELECT query and, before it finishes, wish to make a short-running SQL SELECT query. Both queries are on the same tables. The whole database can be considered read-only. My initial tests show that the short-running query only actually starts when the long-running query has finished.

Android :: Multiple Successive Queries To A Database

Apr 10, 2009

Has anyone other than me needed to make consecutive queries to a sqlitedatabase? My application works sometimes but other times (about 98% of the time), the app will crash. What I'm doing is using the sqlitedatabase.query(..) to return a cursor which I parse, I make multiple successive queries to the database and parse different recordsets/cursors.

My question would be does a sqlitedatabase need to recover or clean up after a .query is issued?

Android :: ContentProvider Queries - Contacts And The SDK Docs

May 15, 2009

A couple of questions. First thing I was wondering is where to log bugs in the docs. The ContentProvider query() docs are missing selectionArgs in the example code. It also uses the deprecated addId instead of ContentUris.withAppendedId().

With regards to the selection options - how exactly can these handle? I've seen a couple of places where a something + "='" + somevalue "'" is used, but I'm specifically wondering if it can handle IN clauses or if there's some form of or statement I can use to check for a variety of values in a particular column rather than just the one.

Last question is about the Contacts PERSON_ID and how long-lived that is. It is guaranteed to never change (though may be removed obviously). Well not truly guaranteed but will only cycle after it runs out of unused integers. Or may they change value as contacts are removed?

Android :: Forward Search Queries To One Single Activity

Dec 15, 2009

have an activity handling search (ACTIVITY_1), which works perfectly when I use the search (via SEARCH button on the phone) within/from this activity. However, when I use search from another activity (ACTIVITY_2..x) by implementing onNewIntent and forward the query string to my Search_Activity.class (ACTIVITY_1) it always pauses ACTIVITY_2 first and then goes to onCreate() of ACTIVITY_2..................

HTC Desire :: Queries - Updated Automatically

Aug 31, 2010

I have some queries:

1- I have Desire with Froyo. So, technically whenever I install an app, I should be given an option to install it on SD card. But so far, haven't seen it yet, consequently today I got a message that phone memory is running low. So, please help me out.

2- Secondly, last night due to some reason I opened navigation first time and there came two pop-ups asking me for some settings. I ticked them and then a satellite logo appeared on top bar. Does it consume a lot of battery?

3- So far I have set many applications on automatic updates but I have observed that I have to always update them manually. They don't get updated automatically.

General :: Motorola XT530 (2.3.5) Rooting Queries

Mar 6, 2012

I went through many threads regarding XT530. links are URL>....the first thread is said to be root XT530 (2.3.5 based) but the title goes for XT316(2.3.4). So i am a bit worried if thats alright or i got wrongly redirected over there. Moreover, the links for the files weren't working, so i need links for the files needed (like Google GMS pack).

the second thread says it will root the current android version, but i need to ask if that would install Google GMS services automatically or i need to download that pack externally.

1. I got just 19mb to 25mb as my internal memory constantly. i mean, i dont think i would get more than 35mb of internal memory even if i remove all apps installed. is it normal?

2. would i be able to shift apps to SD card after rooting?

3. can i overclock my phone? and if yes, what is the maximum limit?

Android :: Threads Or ASyncTask

Apr 6, 2010

I am working on a simple application (studying purposes) which list all the files from a selected folder. On top of that I would like to have a search feature where the user can search for files (the code for that is already in place). Now, I was thinking about having the search running in the background somehow, whilst the user can still navigate, create folders, copy, sort and do other stuffs normally. When the search finishes the user would get a notification and then could click on it and go to that activity (It ideally should be the same ListView I already use for browsing the files, I would just need to update the Adapter there with the latest processed data after clicking in the notification). What's the best answer for that? Threading or AsyncTask?

Android :: AsyncTask And UI Activity

Aug 9, 2010

I know this is not how an async task should behave but my question is how to "block" the user while executing it.My need is the following: I have my own backup/restore process and I have an async task to run these two actions. The backup is fine, I can warn the user when the backup is done and that's just fine But my problem is about the restore process. When the user click on restore he shouldn't be able to make any change in the application (and anyway don't want to because he would lose all his changes).I understand that having the user blocked while restoring (or maybe with a progress bar) is not a best pratice but I do not see any other possibility in this context.

Android :: Timing Out An AsyncTask?

Apr 9, 2010

I know how to use AsyncTask in a standard manner to manage operations that are in the background in relation to a UI thread.However,I want to run a task in the background which might run for a very long time under certain circumstances. In these cases, I would like to force the background task to fail if it runs for an excessive amount of time.I know that I can invoke the "get(long timeout, TimeUnit unit)" method of AsyncTask in my UI thread in order to terminate my background task if it runs too long. However, in that case, my UI will block while this "get()" command is waiting.There are probably other drawbacks to directly calling "get()" in this manner, not the least of which being an evil interaction with the "done()" method of AsyncTask's contained FutureTask object, which itself is calling "get()" at least this is what I see when I look at the source code for AsyncTask.

Android :: ViewSwitcher With AsyncTask

Jul 5, 2010

I have an activity that needs to do some stuff in the background. When the background is done, I want it to load a new activity.I can successfully kick off the async task and using using ViewSwitcher I can show a nice progress dialog.However, when the user hit 'back' or 'close' from the new task, I want them to see the main screen of this task again. So, I use the showPrevious() after I start the new Activity, but I see the screen switch from the loading window back to the main window BEFORE the new Acitivity is launched.How do I get it to switch after the new activity, or when they come back from the new activity?I tried onRestart() and onResume() but both of them seem to give me a view of -1 that I couldn't do much with.

Android :: How To Use AsyncTask From Thread?

Jul 29, 2009

I'm developing a game based on SurfaceView and a game thread for the whole game thing.Now I want to do some HTTP requests triggered on events inside the thread. They should of course be asynchronous, so the game doesn't stop. I found AsyncTask to be a neat way to do this but I'm having trouble implementing this at the moment. Maybe I misunderstood the concept of AsyncTask,I don't know it just drives me nuts as I read docs and blogs and still I don't get it. So sorry if that's a dumb question but I'm mad of thinking about it.

Android :: Asynctask Threads Never End

Mar 13, 2010

while debugging and app that uses AsyncTask to record audio and update UI I noticed that everytime that an AsyncTask object ends running (finishes doInBackground and onPostExecute or on Cancelled its thread stays alive (running status).At least for me that should not be the behavior of the class since the doInBackground task may not stay running forever (as an example the android manual says that a status bar should be updated by an asynctask, and it wont last for the whole app running time).Is there anything Im missing, as a method to destroy it, or should I just ignore and keep creating threads as I need and the VM will handle them as it needs resources?

Obviously AsyncTask IS a generic ( so why do i get those errors?
