Android :: Automatically Show A Sub Menu At Startup?

Mar 3, 2010

I've noticed that some users have not found my app's preferences sub menu, so I want to show that sub menu when the user first-time-ever starts the app.

Since onCreateOptionsMenu() would not have been called yet, how can I programmatically show such a sub menu?

BTW: openOptionsMenu() is not what I want because I want to open a sub menu. I suppose its part of the solution though. However, I get an exception when I call it:

Caused by: android.view.WindowManager$BadTokenException: Unable to add window -- token null is not valid; is your activity running? at android.view.ViewRoot.setView( at android.view.WindowManagerImpl.addView( 177) at android.view.WindowManagerImpl.addView( 91) at android.view.Window$LocalWindowManager.addView(

even though, at the same point in the code, I can successfully open new AlertDialogs.

General :: Automatically Connect To VPN On Device Startup

Feb 1, 2014

I have an android device: it's a stick connected to my TV, running android 4.1 rooted. The stick is an MK808B. The stick is connected to my TV's USB so that when I turn the TV on, the stick boots and when I turn the TV off, it shuts down completely.

I am looking for something that automatically connect the stick to VPN when I boot it. I would preferably use VPN over L2DP, although I'll take PPTP if there's no other option. I can't use openVPN because my ROM's kernel doesn't have TUN. There are two ways to approach this: one way is to connect it on boot, another way is to connect to VPN when the stick connects to a wireless network because my stick is stationary and always connects to the same wi-fi network.

Android :: Get Droid To Show IME In Input Method Pop-up Menu?

Aug 5, 2009

I have written my input method on lines of LatinIME. My IME "MyIME" has a service and an activity similar to LatinIME.

Installing it to emulator via eclipse does not seem to work and hence I have tried the following approaches.

MY GOAL: ~~~~~~~~ All I need as the first step to know that I am heading in the correct direction is that I should be able to see "My IME" as one of the available input methods. For example, on any EditText, when I "long click & release", the Input Method menu that pops up must also show "My IME" as one of the available input methods.

However so far the pop-up only shows "Android keyboard" (LatinIME). Hence I tried the following approaches.

Approach-1: =========== I checked out the andorid source code and built & ran it successfully to make sure I got the build process right. I created my project in ~/mydroid/packages/inputmethods/MyIME. It has the package structure '' (to be in line with Android's package structure, I am not sure if this is required).

I ran a build using "make". Make succeed in compiling MyIME, just like LatinIME and all the android tools were also created. However looking at the build output, LatinIME was installed into /system/app/ LatinIME.apk while MyIME was not installed at all.

Question with respect to approach-1: ------------------------------------ 1. How to get the build process to install MyIME into /system/app as MyIME.apk?

Since install did not happen via the build process, I started the newly built emulator (and newly built ddms to watch logs) and used follownig install approaches:

Approach-2: =========== I ran 'ant debug' to get MyIMESettings-debug.apk. Then I ran 'adb install MyIMESettings-debug.apk'. The attempt failed with the message "Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_UPDATE_INCOMPATIBLE]". Hence I tried the approach-3.

Question with respect to approach-2: ------------------------------------ 2. Why did the install fail when the project was built using 'ant debug'? Is it some thing to do with debug signature?

Approach-3: =========== The build process had created an APK file but hadn't installed it (/ mydroid/out/target/product/generic/obj/APPS/MyIME_intermediates/ package.apk) I renamed that package.apk to MyIME.apk and installed it using "adb install MyIME.apk". The install succeed. However, the adb install put my APK under /data/app with the name "" instead with name MyIME.apk

Question with respect to approach-3: ------------------------------------ 3. Is there any way to get "adb install MyIME.apk" to install into / system/app folder?

Again, what I am trying to achieve is mentioned under "MY GOAL".

HTC EVO 4G :: "Startup Menu" - Something Like That For Phone?

Jul 1, 2010

I have been looking and reading posts for a day or so not looking for the answer to this and my other questions about not having Flicker and Amazon MP3 startup when the phone is "woken up"?

On my HTC Touch Pro I was able ti disable various programs from starting when the phone was turned on or woken up. Is there ANYTHING like this for the Evo? I do not want to go full Root but hate having to close this garbage every time I wake up the phone?

Why the hell does Sprint/HTC do this to this phone? Listen to your customers and get rid of this garbage! It seems to have gotten worse with the latest upgrade

Android :: Show Context Menu When Link Is Long Pressed In TextView?

Apr 18, 2010

I have a TextView with its MovementMethod set to LinkMovementMethod. Text added to the TextView is a combination of normal text and URLs. For URLs, I would like to offer a context menu when the URL is long pressed for doing things such as copying the address. I've had a look at the source for LinkMovementMethod but it doesn't seem to have any long pressed related code I could override. Any ideas on how to go around achieving this?
