Android :: How To Switch From Activity To ListActivity?

Jul 24, 2010

This post probably shows my ignorance of Android coding, but here goes. I have a sample app I am developing which starts by extending Activity. I have a main.XML layout which works great. On a button click from the main layout I'd like to load a ListView. I think I understand how to use ListView and seed data into it. I have created a new layout which contains this ListView. I am confused, however, how I switch from a regular Activity to a ListActivity so I get the convenience methods like setListAdapter()? Should I be starting with a ListView, and then drawing the other view on top once the app starts by inflating the layout and using it? If not, how do I create a ListActivity object inside my app, and where should I create that? If you have a sample application or tutorial that shows how to do this, I would appreciate it.

Android :: App Widget Configure Activity Opens Main Activity

Jan 10, 2010

I hav an app that is like a relational database. There is a main app activity that users manage things with. There is also a widget that will display important info and add data to the database. When the widget is clicked, a configure class displays a way for the user to edit data. When the configure activity is done, the widget is updated and instead of going back to the home screen, the apps main activity is started. I can't find where the main activity is being called from. Wouldn't I have to create an intent and start Activity() to get this behavior? When done updating, I want the home screen and not my app.

Android :: Call Activity From Widget?

May 30, 2009

I've read through the Application Fundamentals three times today (and I had done so before), but I still can't quite wrap my ahead around the task concept. Or I guess I thought I understood it, but usually, the results I am seeing don't match up to what I would expect to happen (maybe a tool to see the current tasks/activities etc. for debugging purposes would be a nice addition).

I have multiple widgets from my provider in the Launcher desktop, and each is using a PendingIntent with a different URI as data (so they should be separate intents) to open an Activity.

I want there to be only once concurrent instance of this Activity that the user can access. So clicking the widget (1) , pressing HOME (2), clicking a different widget (3), pressing BACK (4) should bring the user back to the Desktop.

Now I did manage to do this using launchMode="singleTask" - the existing instance is brought to the top, onNewIntent() is called and I am pretty satisfied with it.

However, supposedly there are other ways to achieve an equivalent effect (say with having the activity restarted), and I'd like to understand why I don't seem to be able to get them to work: In every case, instead of seeing the home screen after step (4) (after pressing BACK), I see the *previous* instance of the Activity.

For example, if I read this correctly:

"There's another way to force activities to be removed from the stack. If an Intent object includes the FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP flag, and the target task already has an instance of the type of activity that should handle the intent in its stack, all activities above that instance are cleared away so that it stands at the top of the stack and can respond to the intent. If the launch mode of the designated activity is "standard", it too will be removed from the stack, and a new instance will be launched to handle the incoming intent."

Then simply using using the following code to start my Activity from my widget should do what I want, no?


So in (3) My activity should be launched using FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK by the launcher, which due to process affinity would find the existing task (which would consist of a single instance of my Activity), and launch the new instance on top of it. This explains what I am seeing. Why doesn't FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP cause the existing instance in the task to be replaced?

Even setting android:launchMode explicitely to "standard", as mentioned in the doc quote above, this doesn't seem to change things.

I also tried android:finishOnTaskLaunch="true", but the behaviour is the exact same was just described with FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP (which seems to be the exact same as when doing neither and really starting an activity without any special attributes).

I should mention that If I click the same widget in (3) as I clicked in (1), i.e. using the same PendingIntent twice, I do get the previous instance brought to the front (not restarted), but again, regardless of whether FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP or finishOnTaskLaunch are being used.

I find this especially strange since the docs about tasks don't seem to mention the intent itself being relevant at all. Application Fundamentals does at one point say "For the default "standard" mode, a new instance is created to respond to every new intent", but it's not clear what "new intent" means then. Is triggering a PendingIntent multiple times through a widget not multiple "new" intents then?

I also tried various combinations of the other related options, but pretty much got nowhere.

Android :: Update A Widget From An Activity?

Sep 22, 2009

I have been looking for a way to update a widget asynchronously, for example, when the phone receives a text message. I have a broadcast receiver set up with code that runs upon receiving a message. I also have an AppWidgetProvider that is set up and running. It seems like the *only* way a widget can be updated is upon its interval, or when the user interacts with it. Is there any way to update a widget upon a system event?

Android :: Update Widget From Activity

Nov 1, 2010

I have a widget, its setup so that when I click on it, it opens some settings in an activity.


This configures some settings for the application. What I want to achieve is to have the widget update its view to reflect the changed settings when the Activity I launch closes. Using the update interval or any other type of polling isn't appropriate for this.

I've seen a couple places here and in the android docs this code used:


But I don't know how to get the mAppWidgetId value. I tried following the example for a widget configuration activity here, but in the following code,


Extras is always null, so I never get the AppWidgetID.

I use <AnalogClock android:layout_width="wrap_content" :layout_height="wrap_content" /> in my layout XML file, but the clock's appearance is different from the one added in Home screen.

But I want to know is there a way to directly reference the resource in the AnalogClock?

Scenario: User drags widget on home screen without prior launch of the Activity in question. I am following this post: Instead of launching the browser through ACTION_VIEW, I am trying to launch an Activity by class. I've toyed around with different Intent settings, but no luck.

Android :: Add Widget Configuration Activity To Launcher?

Oct 17, 2010

I have a widget with a configuration activity.

Currently the configuration launches when you click on the widget.

I want to add the configuration as an app icon to the launcher.

The problem is that when the configuration launches on click, I get a specific widget id , so each widget instance can have a different configuration.

What will happen if I start the activity from the launcher?

I wont be able to show multiple configurations on the same activity.

Android :: Use An Activity Or A Service When Using A Button In A Widget?

Aug 9, 2010

I have made a Android Widget which displays two articles (title + image). In addition to this, I have buttons for flipping backward and forward through the articles. What I don't understand is how I can change the Widgets RemoteViews when the buttons are pressed. Which should be one of the most basic operations in a widget, however, I can't seem to figure it out.

So... Can I do this with just a OnClickListener in the AppWidgetProvider? Or do I have to create an Activity without a window (visibility = false)?

Android :: Widget Configuration Activity - Update Request

Sep 18, 2010

I'm having an issue with a config activity for a widget. According to the dev docs, if I specify a configuration activity than the onUpdate method of the AppWidgetProvider doesn't get called until after you request an update once you've completed the configuration activity. For me its happening in reverse, the onUpdate method of the AppWidgetProvider gets called first, followed by the configuration activity. Then the onUpdate method is never called after completion of the config activity even though I request it explicitly. I tried with level 4 and level 7 API, same result. Here is some of the source:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <manifest
android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">
<application android:icon="@drawable/app_icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".SWidgetConfigure">
<intent-filter> <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_CONFIGURE" />
</intent-filter> </activity>
<receiver android:name=".SWidgetProvider" android:label="@string/ widget_name">
<meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider" android:resource="@xml/swidget_info"/> <intent-filter> <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE" />
</intent-filter> </receiver>
<service android:name=".service.PUpdateService" />
</application> <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="4" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

swidget_info.xml: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <appwidget-provider
android:minWidth="294dp" android:minHeight="72dp"
android:configure="" >

I can include source of the onUpdate method from the AppWidgetProvider activity and the onCreate method of the configuration activity if necessary, but they are both being called find its just the order they show up on the emulator is wrong.

Android :: Starting Activity Witouth Window From Widget

Apr 17, 2010

I recently (yesterday in fact :)) started creating widgets.

So my first widget I want to create is something like: * A 2x2 widget * Containing 2 buttons * Button

1: Register current time and location * Button

2: Open up an activity where configuration can be modified, registered times and location can be viewed,...

Now the problem for me is button 1. As I only try to do some registration data (so no further user input required after pressing the button) I would like to just show a loading bar and after wards Toast a message to screen, or a popup if anything goes wrong.

This is what I do now:


So what happens: I click the button, a plain black screen pops up (Altough I did not specify a layout upon creating the activity), and after my work is done the Toast shows up and the activity gets 'killed'. Basically that is what I want to do except for the black screen to show up. Is it possible not to show a screen upon creating the activity?
