Android :: Can Prevent Words From Breaking In Textview When Using Wrap Content In Android

Sep 20, 2010

I am in the process of trying to convert a desktop app to Android - and am struggling with some very basic stuff. When I specify a layout including a textview that holds a sizable amount of text wrap_content seems to arbitrarily break in the middle of a word - and I can not find any documentation indicating this can be controlled.

Android :: Unable To Add Subview To Linear Layout With Wrap Content

Aug 29, 2010

I'm using data to build elements of a ViewGroup. The ViewGroup are LinearLayouts, except the leaves, which are TextViews. Because Data draws the hierarchy, I inflate the LinearLayouts and TextViews from individual XML files programatically on the fly.

My Problem:
When I create a LinearLayout with the attribute wrap_content, then inflate a TextView or other LinearLayout into it, I can't get the parents (or enough of them, anyway) to redraw, respecting the new view. These LinearLayouts always seem to come out at 0 size, because when they are first created (before their children are inflated), they wrap around nothing. I've tried calling some stock methods of ViewGroup but nothing seems to work.

Android :: Android - ListView Items Not Grow To Wrap Their Content

Nov 2, 2009

I have a rather complex ListView, with variable list item heights. Under certain conditions, I need to display an additional view in a list item, which is hidden by default (View.GONE). By enabling it (View.VISIBLE), the list item grows in height (or at least it's supposed to).

The problem:
Even though I declare the item's root layout to wrap_content, and each component in the item to fill_parent, the view I hide/show which is supposed to change the item's height is simply cut off at the bottom instead of its parent (the item layout) growing in height to fully display it.

Are there any gotchas related to ListViews and item layouts and item height which I may have missed?

Some more observations:

For testing purposes I have now reduced the list item layout to just contain the root LinearLayout and an ImageView. When I set the LinearLayout height to e.g. 200dip and the ImageView to fill_parent, I would have expected the ImageView to grow until it hits the 200dip limit set by its parent.

However, the image will instead be only ever as tall as its bitmap resource (as if I had set it to wrap_content) and the whole list item will be of the same height (i.e. as if I had set it to wrap_content, too).

If however I set the image height to e.g. 200dip, then the list item will grow in height, and so will the item layout.

In other words, the layout_height of the list item layout is completely ignored, and so is any height value on ImageView other than a hard-coded pixel value.

Android :: Make TextView To Break Words In Middle Then Move To Another?

Jan 27, 2009

Is it possible to make TextView to break words in the middle and then move to another line, instead moving whole word that doesn't fit to the new line ? I have a width and number of lines of the TextView and a long string and want to calculate which portion of the String will fit exactly. the code is TextView vTextShort = (TextView) findViewById (; int lineHeight = vTextShort.getLineHeight(); int nmbLines = mesuredHeight / lineHeight; Paint mPaint = vTextShort.getPaint(); String shortTextStr = mStoryText; mStoryBreakIdx = 0; vTextShort.setLines(nmbLines ); int breakText = mPaint.breakText(mStoryText.toCharArray(), 0, mStoryText.length(), mesuredWidth, null); mStoryBreakIdx = breakText * nmbLines; It seems to calculate number of chars accurately but not accounting for the space that left after word is moved to a new line if it doesn't fit fully. And i'm looking on how to either break words in the middle or how calculate a width of the text that will fit correctly.

Android :: Rotating In Content Gets Clipped / Way To Prevent?

Oct 24, 2009

I'm trying to draw some large circles on the canvas which are partly offscreen, then use animation to rotate them in be fully visible. My circles successfully rotate in, but when they come into view they're clipped at the place that was the screen edge when they were originally drawn. Is there any way to prevent this? I guess my larger question is how can you draw elements beyond the edges of the screen and then animate them into view?

Android :: Prevent TextView From Stretching Out It's Parent LinearLayout?

Jul 24, 2010

It seems that a TextView inside a LinearLayout forces that LinearLayout to be larger. I am trying split my screen top 50% and bottom 50% and also the bottom 50% is split into 3 parts. So I did my weights 3 (for the top), and then 1, 1, 1 (for the bottom) for a total of 6.

Here is what it looks like.

As soon as I take out the TextView inside the first LinearLayout the splits are proper. The moment I put the TextView inside the top LinearLayout the top LinerLayout gets larger by the amount of the the TextView.

Here is my code:

Android :: Failing Android JUnit Tests, Not Breaking My Ant Script Like I Expect

Jun 2, 2010

Failing JUnit tests, not breaking my Ant script like I expect?

My continuous integration server runs an Ant script, which calls something like:
/tests/ant run-tests

My JUnit tests run, but with errors:


The errors are OK, but my build script keeps going (eventually publishing my broken app to my testers - bad!). What I would expect is for the instrimentaiton to throw a build error, so my continuous integration server (TeamCity in this case) realises that something has gone wrong and reports a broken build. The "failonerror" is already set in the relevant macrodef, so I'm not sure what else I can do?

Android :: Line-breaking Widget Layout For Android

Feb 14, 2009

I'm trying to create an activity that presents some data to the user. The data is such that it can be divided into 'words', each being a widget, and sequence of 'words' would form the data ('sentence'?), the ViewGroup widget containing the words. As space required for all 'words' in a 'sentence' would exceed the available horizontal space on the display, I would like to wrap these 'sentences' as you would a normal piece of text.

The following code:


yields something like the left picture, but I would want a layout presenting the same widgets like in the right one.

Is there such a layout or combination of layouts and parameters, or do I have to implement my own ViewGroup for this?

Android :: Using Android SAXParser - One My XML Elements Is Breaking In Half

Mar 30, 2010

Im using the SAXParser object do parse the actual XML.

This is normally done by passing a URL to the XMLReader.Parse method. Because my XML is coming from a POST request to a webservice, I am saving that result as a String and then employing StringReader / InputSource to feed this string back to the XMLReader.Parse method.

However, something strange is happening at the 2001st character of the XMLstring. The 'characters' method of the document handler is being called TWICE in between the startElement and endElement methods, effectively breaking my string (in this case a project title) into two pieces. Because I am instantiating objects in my characters method, I am getting two objects instead of one.

This line, about 2000 chars into the string fires 'characters' two times, breaking between "Lower" and "Level"


When I bypass the StringReader / InputSource workaround and feed a flat XML file to XMLReader.Parse, it works absolutely fine.

Something about StringReader and or InputSource is somehow screwing this up.

Here is my method that takes and XML string and parses is through the SAXParser.


How to not have 'characters' firing off twice when I get to this point in the XML String.

Or, show me how to use a POST request and still pass off the URL to the Parse function.

Android :: Switching Content Providers For Same Content URI

Aug 12, 2009

This may seem like a stupid question but I need to be sure. I was wondering if it was possible to pro-grammatically change the Content Provider used when making a query given a Content URI. The reason being I need to know if it's possible to force the Calendar/Contacts applications to read from a different database via a different Content Provider temporarily while my application is running, so that I can reuse those applications to display my own data. Since the Content URI s are hard coded in each of these applications the only way it might be possible is if we could somehow temporarily change the Content Provider used for a given URI. I know this probably isn't possible, I just need to show it isn't. Could someone confirm this can't be done?
