Android :: Call Or Start External Application

Sep 15, 2010

I'm working on a Application and I would like to start or call an external application from it by pressing for example a button...on my application.

The application I would like to call is an open source application.

I've read on the official android website it is possible to do it but haven't found any suggestion on how to do it.

MY APPROACH:

So trying on my own I've used an Intent Action and a button...like this

CODE:...............

RESULT:

When the button is pressed, A window appears which invites me to complete the Action I guess by choosing one of the Listed programs such as:

-Gstr
-Import Ics
-Market
-Music
-Mail (com.htc.android.mail) and so on...but not the API I was looking for...

When I choose Gstr(I guess is the application manager) then opens another window

Which shows a list of Installed Applications. From there I find the Application I was

Looking for and starts it (by long pressing on it's Icon...)

ISSUE:

I would like to start the external Application directly by clicking on a button on my application without passing through hundreds of others... Is there a way to achieve?

Android :: Start External App / Activity And Add My Own Header?

Jan 16, 2010

I am using Sygic Navigation on my HTC Hero. I can start it by calling the correct intent as I described here. Now, Sygic starts in fullscreen-mode and I cannot use the BACK-button to go back to my previous Activity (dont ask me why).

The question is: is there some trick or way so I can control how that Sygic Activity is started? I want to add my own "header" on top; the header contains my buttons for navigation. It would be great if I could add that header, then have Sygic below that (as the "content" then, as shown here).

Android :: Launching External Application From App

Dec 29, 2009

I would like to launch an app the user selects from within my application. However, I'm not sure how I'd go about doing this. I've tried this:

Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setAction(Contacts.Intents.SHOW_OR_CREATE_CONTACT);
startActivity(intent);

But this seems to throw an error and force close my application. I also tried adding:

<action android:name="Contacts.Intents.SHOW_OR_CREATE_CONTACT"/>

in the AndroidManifest file, but to no avail.

A look at Logcat shows that it's an "IOexception - no such file or directory". A couple of questions arise from this. I read through the Android docs and noticed that the Contact.Intents class is deprecated. However, it's successor, ContactContracts is aimed at API level 5 whereas I'm targeting API level 3. Could this be the problem? Also, I've hardcoded this application into the code. Is there a way to retrieve the intents of any application the user selects so that they can be launched?

Android :: Android Application Running External Code - Application

Aug 12, 2010

This is my target:

I need an Android application which should be able to fetch data from the web (maybe an .apk or a .jar) and launch "something" from it.

If it's a "trivial" class there's no problem at all. This is my Loader

CODE:.............

The problem is that the code I want to execute looks very like an application, which should have a "simple" view and some interaction on it.

I'm not able to invoke the "onCreate" method of my downloaded class.

I guess I've three streets:

I look for a method which silently install the application and then runs it (is it possible?) I understand how to initialize a second "application" inside my own one (with its own R and all stuff) I write my master program to fetch data from the web and construct pages dinamically.

Android :: Is It Legal To Call Start Method Twice On Same Thread?

Aug 1, 2009

The following code leads to "java.lang.IllegalThreadStateException: Thread already started." the second time it is run through on the program This happens the second time updateUI.start() is called. I've stepped through it multiple times and the thread is called and completely runs to completion before hitting updateUI.start(). Calling updateUI.run() avoids the error but causes the thread to run in the UI thread (the calling thread, as mentioned in other posts on SO), which is not what I want. Can a Thread be started only once? If so than what do I do if I want to run the thread again? This particular thread is doing some calculation in the background, if I don't do it in the thread than it's done in the UI thread and the user has an unreasonably long wait.

Android :: Start Application With SMS

May 1, 2009

I would like to know if anybody knows how I can start my application with an incoming SMS message.

For example, I send an SMS message from phone A to Phone B. When Phone B receives the message, it checks if it is sent to my program. If it is, it starts(run) my application. Important thing here is that my program is not running in the device unless SMS is received, so it can not be listening for SMS itself.

Android :: Cannot Start Parent Application / Process Is Bad

May 12, 2009

As an exercise I attempted to add an AppWidgetProvider-derived class to one of our existing Android applications. When the widget is created and appears on the home screen, the output from adb logcat notes: W/ActivityManager(58): Unable to launch app com.mycompany.myapp/ 10042 for broadcast Intent { action=android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_ENABLED comp= {com.mycompany.myapp/com.mycompany.myapp.MyAppWidgetProvider} }: process is bad

This output comes from around line 10814 in ActivityManagerService (looking at cupcake on git). This is running on an ADP 1.5, FWIW. The same AppWidget code, once separated from the main application's project and put into its own simple project, runs as expected, so I know my manifest entries/XML/Java are all as they should be. Has anyone else run into this, or perhaps can the Android team comment on what aspect of my application might be preventing the AM from starting up the process when the widget is added to the home screen?

Android :: Start Native Application From Java

I can also start the application using Runtime.exec(), but that doesn't work so well for me; I need the application to run outside of a Java Runtime Process. Any ideas?
