Android :: Best Practice For Viewflipper Containing 10 Linear Layouts?

May 23, 2010

I'm embarking on a GUI Activity composed of a viewflipper, which I would like to contain 10 linearlayout layouts. Is it advisable to put all of my layouts into the same XML resource/layout file? If not, is there a more organized approach to coding a viewflipper with many layouts? Will having everything in the same file come at a significant performance cost?

Android :: Multiple Activites That Share 75% Of Layout - Layouts Within Layouts?

Sep 6, 2010

I'm creating a game where there's a screen that, for the most part, is shared by four different activites - but a key portion of the screen will be completely different, depending upon which activity is active. Basically, on the left will be an image of the player and along the bottom there will be a row of buttons (let's say for Armour, Weapons, Magic, Skills). This leaves the top-right portion, which will need to dynamically change to represent the button pressed. (So, one moment the top-right portion is the armour selection activity, and the next it's the weapon selection activity, and so on.)

Is this possible? Can I have a layout within a layout and dynamically point the nested layout at a (nested) layout.xml of my choosing? Or, am I looking at just duplicating most of the layout four times (for the four different activities?) Or, am I going to be looking at linking the four activities to a (the top-right) view component, and then having to dynamically construct all of *that* view's child views based on the currently active activity? Well, that's about as much sense as I can make this question make.

Android :: ViewFlipper Flickering

Oct 3, 2010

I have a ViewFlipper with two ImageView widgets. I have set the in and out animation as android.R.anim.slide_in_left and android.R.anim.slide_out_right

Now when the two ImageViews have two different drawables, then the animation is sleek and smooth. But when I set the both the ImageViews to the same Drawable, the screen flickers. Why is this happening and how do I prevent it?

In other words, it can be changed Layout#1 -> Layout#5 or Layout#4 -> Layout#1 ..etc. How to make it? I used showNext() and showPrevious(). It is not better idea for my case. Can I use ViewSwither instead of this case?

Android :: ViewFlipper - Gesture Detector

Mar 25, 2010

I am using gesture detector to catch "flings" and using a view flipper to change the screen when this happens. Some of my child views contain list views. The the gesture detector wont recognize a swipe if you swipe on the list view. But it will recognize it if it is onTop of TextView's or ImageView's. Is there a way to implement it so that it will recognize the swipes even if they are on top of another view that has a ClickListener?

Android :: ViewFlipper - Homescreen Animation

Apr 28, 2010

I am trying to use a ViewFlipper and make it act like the home screen(The layout will move with your finger). Check out this for an example. I want to do this with a ViewFlipper that only contains two children so the opposite view should be shown on either side of the current view depending on which way the user moves their finger. This code works but only for 1 direction at a time. This is in onTouchEvent.


Which ever of the bottom two lines I put last that direction will work correctly but the other will not.

Here is how I set the leftView and rightView:


Is it going to be possible to set it up so that the same view is shown on both sides of the current view?

Android :: How To Add Custom View To ViewFlipper

Oct 8, 2010

I have a ViewFlipper defined that contains 3 views...


I also have a custom View defined within my Activity...


Some how, I need these linked together so that the 'third_view' defined in the XML layout file needs to be a CompassView, or have a CompassView added to it.

What I can do is drop the 'third_view' from the layout and then add in the CompassView manually..


But then I lose the ability to define other view controls within the layout file.

Can I add CompassView to 'third_view' declaratively?

Android :: ViewFlipper & Multiple Images?

Oct 14, 2010

I need to include multiple images in my Android app. It's like an image viewer/slideshow. Currently I switch between pictures from /drawable-mdpi dir simply with ImageView and adapter, using gestures to left/right. Works but nothing impresive :/

Basically I could use something like Android (2.1) gallery with some image show animation.

1st question: what's the best way to include many (50-100) fullscreen images in App?

2nd: is it possible to use ViewFlipper animations directly to images? or do i have to somehow populate Views?

Android :: Get Bitmap Of All Views In ViewFlipper?

Apr 6, 2010

I need to take the Bitmap of all the Views in ViewFlipper. But it gives me the Bitmap of only the current content on the screen. Is there any way of getting Bitmap of all the Views in the ViewFlipper.

Or is there any other way around to get the Bitmap of all the Views. I have four views and need to load them at the same time and get their Bitmap so that I can resize it and later display with Gallery.

I hope to get a quick response this time around.

Android :: Custom Animations For ViewAnimator - ViewFlipper

Sep 15, 2009

I am wondering how to use custom in/out animations for a ViewAnimator, such as the 3d flip animation in the ApiDemos. Details below in case you have the time to read.

The following methods:

animator.setInAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this, R.anim.fade_in));

animator.setInAnimation(this, R.anim.fade_in);

Require that I use the animation as a XML resource but the documentation says the XML only takes "<alpha>, <scale>, <translate>, <rotate>, interpolator element, or <set>" as the root element. So it seems to indicate that you cannot use a custom animation as an XML resource?

I also tried:

animator.setInAnimation(new AlphaAnimation(0.0f, 1.0f));

Which doesn't seem to work (no animation happens just plain cut).

Android :: ViewFlipper Dies With Receiver Not Registered

Nov 12, 2010

We have a very simple ViewFlipper widget in a layout. The following trace back happens when it crashes. This does not trace back into our application code at all.

There is a similar bug logged for 2.1

We are running on 2.2 and getting this error.

Is this fixed or is it necessary to create a workaround subclass?

Android :: ViewFlipper - Force It To Show First View?

Jul 29, 2010

When I add a ViewFlipper, the UI thread seems to wait for the onCreate() method in the activity to be finished. Then it shows the second view. Why does it happen?

My current code is...

Actually, the doSomeLoading consists of a for loop counting to ten millions and doing nothing. Now it just waits for loop to be done and shows the second view.

I would really appreciate a solution without having to create a separate Thread, because it seems to be pointless, invalidate().

I have an application using ListView inside Tabs, and I'd like to switch to a separate View(data collection widget) on clicking an item in the List.I'm adding each List's row's children to a ViewFlipper and the items are added at runtime so there is no definite number of views. As such, i would want to navigate/switch to a particular View in the ViewFlipper.Any pointers?

Android :: VideoView In ViewFlipper Is Transparent When Video Is Playing

Sep 10, 2010

I've got an Activity with two views set up in a ViewFlipper. One of the views is a layout with a GLSurfaceView and a few other widgets, the other just has a layout with a TextView and a VideoView. When I click on something in the GLSurfaceView, the ViewFlipper swaps so the video can play. In this screenshot, you can see the plain GLSurfaceView rendering a map on the left. On the right is what it looks like after the ViewFlipper has flipped and the video starts playing. The empty transparent area where the GLSurfaceView shows through is where the video is supposed to be. I can hear it playing through the speaker and the timeline is moving forward, so I know it's playing.

Android :: Best Practice For Changing Min SDK Version?

Aug 2, 2010

I have a sizable install base already on some apps with Android 1.5 set as the minimum version. I want to update the apps to take advantage of some of the newer features offered in Android 2.0 and greater. What is the best way forward so I don't break things for my current 1.5 and 1.6 users?

If I simply update the application with a new min SDK version, will 1.5 and 1.6 users be prompted to uninstall? Or will they just not see the update? What about future development that I want to apply for everyone, say a bugfix. Will I have painted myself into a corner? Another solution would be to fork and create a new app for 2.0 users, but that is undesirable for several reasons.

Android :: Best Practice For P2P Handset Networking

Dec 4, 2009

I've been scouring the web looking for information on setting up a peer-to-peer connection between Android handsets and so far have drawn a blank. The only thing I can definitively seem to work out is that it was made a whole lot more difficult when XMPP was removed from 1.0. Apart from that, I find a couple of threads on an OpenIntents board about porting an XMPP implementation to Android that were last posted nearly 2 years ago. Has anybody solved this problem effectively? What's the best way of doing it (from a games point of view)?

Android :: Best Practice For Implementing Watchdog

I'm writing an application where real-time knowledge of the GPS state is critical to convey to the user. I request GPS updates at 1000 ms intervals -- when I haven't received another update 1500 ms past the most recent update, I want to display a yellow icon, and 5000 ms after the most recent update I want to display a red icon. Currently, I'm doing it like this: private CountDownTimer gpstimeout; public void onLocationChanged(Location location) { if (gpstimeout != null) gpstimeout.cancel(); gpstimeout = new CountDownTimer(5000, 1500) { public void onTick(long m) { setYellow(); } public void onFinish() { setRed(); } }; gpstimeout.start(); }

Android :: Best Practice With SQLite And Phone

Mar 22, 2010

What is considered "best practice" when executing queries on a SQLite db within an Android app? Is it safe to run inserts, deletes and select queries from an AsyncTask's doInBackground ? Or should I use the UI Thread? I suppose that db queries can be "heavy" and should not use the UI thread as it can lock up the app - resulting in an ANR. If I have several AsyncTasks, should they share a connection or should they open a connection each?
