Android :: Create An App That Only Allows Horizontal Orientation?

Nov 20, 2010

I'm currently creating a side-scroller style game for my final year project for my degree.

I'm just wondering how you make the menu designed for when the phone is in horizontal orientation display, even when the phone is held in it's vertical orientation?

i.e. I want the user to know that the game has to be played with the phone in it's horizontal orientation and want the menu's to only display in the horizontal orientation.

Android :: Layout Weight Is Inconsistent For Horizontal And Vertical Orientation

Apr 8, 2009

I have played around a bit with the xml files for creating layouts and can't explain the behaviour of layout_weight when using it in a LinearLayout that has orientation="vertical"

When creating a layout that is horizontal everything follows the documentation, that a child would get more space if it's has the highest value.

But the following code for vertical orientation, give more space to the item with lowest weight.


And the question is: Is this a bug or just a feature that maybe need more documentation?

|| < || Menu Item1 || Menu Item2 || Menu Item3 || > ||

I want to put this on top of the screen. It can have more than 3 menu item and it can traverse through previous and next arrow.

I started with like this:

Android : How To Create A Wrapping Horizontal List

Jan 8, 2010

I'm attempting to create a list view in Android that shows clickable items that wrap horizontally much like the "To" field in the OS X and iPhone's Mail programs. They have a horizontal list of names that wrap vertically and each name is a separate object, the list is not just a single string. My questions are: Is there a way to do this with a ListView or some other type of AdapterView? Everything I've seen and experimented with is either horizontal scrolling or vertically stacking, but not horizontal wrapping. Are you aware of an existing app with available source that has a view like this that I could look at as an example? The Google Mail/SMS apps just has a single string in the too field that isn't clickable.

Android :: Admob - How To Detect Horizontal Orientation And Hide Admob?

Nov 12, 2010

I am new to programming in Java and Android. I got admob to work at the most basic level, and whenever the device is at the landscape orientation, admob tends to popup and occupy a huge potion of the screen.What is the best way to detect the orientation and hide the ads from displaying if it is in horizontal orientation? Is it necessary to put the admob application in a thread to check for change in orientation and hide/unhide it?

Android :: Orientation Change - Dialog Above Activity With Fixed Orientation

May 14, 2009

I have created an activity for my game which handles all orientation changes by itself and has a fixed "portrait" layout. Actually it uses the accelerometer and is rendered using 2D canvas methods. If the level has been completed I show up a highscore dialog in which the user can enter his name. The dialog is floating above the underlying level screen which gets blurred out nicely. This generally works.

Problem is that the dialog does not get rotated if the orientation of the phone changes. So even if the keyboard is exposed the dialog is shown in portrait mode instead of landscape. I have tried to use an activity with dialog theme instead but the behavior didn't change. After several tries it seems that I have found the reason for this: Once there's an activity with fixed orientation in the activity stack then all subsequent activities keep this orientation, too. They will not react on orientation changes anymore (e.g. if the keyboard gets exposed).

After upgrading to 1.5 SDK the described behavior changed a little bit. Now at subactivities indead react on orientation changes like expected. However, the need to have an opaque background! That means that neither dialogs nor activities with dialog theme will work. Those will stick with the orientation of the underlaying activity. So my workaround is to first start a sub-activity with an opaque black background. This activity then shows my highscore dialog on top. It looks quite okay but I wonder if there's a better solution? Is it possible to show a dialog above a fixed portrait or landscape activity which automatically adapts to orientation changes?

Android :: Using Orientation Sensor To Get 360 Orientation

Jul 17, 2009

I have a problem with working with the ORIENTATION values of the SensorManager. I would like to have some kind of 360-value which directly shows me if the phone is in normal portrait (0), landscape, portrait turned around (180) or anything in between. So I could have, for example, an arrow that points to the floor (like gravity would do with a plummet) all the time, no matter how I tilt (sidewards) the phone. I thought this would be easy, but I'm pretty confused at the moment.

First of all, the X value of the orientation-array seems to correspondent with how I turn the phone, BUT: if it's completely uprightly standing, this value is about 60 ... why not 0 (or 90, 180, 270), as I would expect?

Second: The value resets if I turn the phone and Android automatically changes screen orientation. So both in Portrait and in Landscape mode it will be sth. like 60 when the phone is in a 0 angel in real world. I set "android:screenOrientation" to "landscape" but this doesn't help anything :/

I want the app NOT to change orientation when I turn the phone, but I want it to get a continuous orientation value when I tilt the phone.

Android :: Horizontal Scroll In ListView

Mar 26, 2010

I would like to catch horizontal scrolling in ListView. I don't wont to scroll ListView content, I need an event only. I use GestureDetector, and in onScroll() method I can figure out when user scrolls in horizontal direction. This part works. But my problem is ListView fires onItemLongClick event also. I need this event, but only if user doesn't scroll. If user scrolls in vertical direction, ListView doesn't fire onItemLongClick event. I need the same behavior for horizontal scrolling also.

Android :: Vertical And Horizontal Scrolling Together

Jul 7, 2009

is it possible to have both Scrollbars together. My Application is too big for just one of them. I tried it with a ScrollView in a HorizontalScrollView Layout, but it supports only vertical or horizontal scrolling at the same time and not crosswise. It would be nice to have a scrolling just like in the Browser of Android. Is this possible?

Android :: Scrollview Vertical And Horizontal

Jan 11, 2010

I'm really tired looking for a solution for Scrollview vertical and horizontal. I read that the any view/layout implements this feature in the framework but i need something like this. I need to define a layout within other, the child layout must implement scrolling vertical/horizontal for moving. Initially implemented a code that move the layout pixel by pixel, but i think that is not the right way. I tried with ScrollView and HorizontalScrollView but any ones work like i want, because only implement vertical or horizontal scrolling.

Android :: Force Horizontal Layout ?

Jan 14, 2010

I'm pretty close to finished with my first game for Android, and I've come across a problem that's so simple I'm sure I'll feel stupid for not knowing how to solve it, but how can I force the app to stay in a Horizontal layout? Right now, if you turn the phone (emulator) it flips the graphics and squeezes them. I want the game to start horizontally and stay that way regardless of how the user turns the phone.
