Android : Call App Activities From Stand-alone Widget?

Dec 29, 2009

I currently have widget for my app Hire*A*Droid bundled with the main application. I would like to unbundle the widget and release it as a separate offering. However - the widget is relying on Activities from the main app so I need to navigate between these two mainly calling particular Activity of the main app from the widget. So the basic idea - app can work without widget and the widget becomes the "add-on" option.

What is the "right" way to call app activities from the stand-alone widget? Do I convert the main app into a content provider? Can you point me to any code samples perhaps?

P.S. I'm not asking how to call Activities from the widget that is bundled in the same APK. The question specifically states that widget is distributed separately from the app it's calling

Android :: Accessing Shared Preferences In Services And Non Activities

Sep 23, 2009

I have some shared preferences (user_id, email) that I want to access from services and classes that are not subclassed from Activity. I have been trying to implement this today and keep hitting roadblocks. In particular, when I try to access getSharedPreferences, I get a null pointer exception. My code is posted below. My goal here is to allow read access the shared preferences to objects and (potentially) services that aren't going to be directly exposed to the user.

<snip> public class MyPrefs extends Service {
public static final String PREFS_NAME = "MyPrefs";
private int user_id;
private String user_email;
private String user_password;
private Editor editor = null;
private SharedPreferences settings = null;
public MyPrefs () {
settings = this.getSharedPreferences(PREFS_NAME, Context.MODE_PRIVATE);
this.getSharedPreferences line causes a null pointer exception.

General :: Create A Folder With Multiple Other Widgets Inside?

May 26, 2013

I'm looking to clean up my home screens a little and would like to be able to create one on-screen folder or widget that can hold multiple other widgets for quick access and easy launch. Specifically, I have quite a few ColorNote files that I need quick access too, but don't necessarily want clogging up my home screen. I'm hoping there's something out there - either a folder organizer, launcher, or widget that can do this for me.

I currently use GoLauncher and FolderOrganizer on my SG Note.

Android :: ScrollView With Buttons Inside / No Response Until Second Click On Any Button Inside

Oct 30, 2010

I've been a couple of days trying to solve this thing but I can'f figure it out.The problem is, simple activity, with simple layout, ScrollView -> LinearLayout -> and a lot of buttons inside the layout (within the scroll content). Everything works just fine but one tricky thing. When I click a button let's say at the top of the scroll content and inmediatelly I scroll down to the bottom of the content and I click other button there, nothing happens until I click a second time and all come to normal again.This can be reproduced anytime and it's code independent (i've tried more than 20 scenarios). I've not much experience in android yet but looks like the scroll listener stops the onclick listener or something like that.

Android :: ListView Inside LinearLayout Inside ScrollView

Jul 7, 2009

So I've been extremely frustrated by this for a long time now.I've posted before, but can't seem to find a good solution. My goal is to have something pretty much exactly like the installed application details page in the Android Market.I need a list of items displayed along with other content above the list, and would like the content above to scroll up along with the list (exactly like the application details does for the "My Review" and other descriptive info).Due to responses to my previous posts, I came to believe that it really wasn't possible to do this with a ListView.So rather than using a ListView, I refactored my code to use a simple LinearLayout and add individual View items to the list, thinking I could just set each View as clickable and add an OnClickListener to each View in the LinearLayout.That's not working at all though, and now I'm getting even more frustrated.If someone can help me get the OnClickListener working, then I think it'll work, but I do need a separator for the LinearLayout.How do I add a separator like the one used for ListView to my LinearLayout?

Android :: Stand Alone APK From Contact Source Code?

Jul 15, 2009

I have downloaded the full Android source code & pulled out the contact source into a different folder. I am trying to create a separate Contacts "stand alone" App using the existing android contacts source code, once that done I intend to add some more features (code) to contacts source & make a contacts.apk out of it. Is it possible? The problem I faced was, when I pulled the contacts app source code, there were many internal api calls & Private api references. I tried to resolve them by including those internal api source code & class files (available from the android source code) in my project, but there are still many errors & internal api calls, which I am not sure how to resolve them like:

import android.os.ServiceManager android.provider.Gmail android.provider.Im android.provider.Telephony acquireProvider(Uri) deleteRow() lookupProviderNameFromId(int) ISyncAdapter IContentProvider etc.

Is there a way to solve these internal API issue? Was there anyone who has successfully extended any of the existing apps (Contacts, Alaram, calendar.) of android with the help of its source code, is this approach possible? I tried to include the "framework_immediates classes.jar" in the project, but due to duplicate class files present in the project & SDK it throws the ususal - UNEXPECTED TOP-LEVEL EXCEPTION: class file already added com/android/ internal/telephony/callerInfosync. I have been trying to achieve this for the past 2 days, with not much success. Can somebody lead me to a correct direction?

Is there an app out there that has all the functions of one of these, reoccurring events, Colored event bars etc, BUT does not link to either the stock or Google, or any other type. I'm not happy with the way this linking system works, but I DO need a calendar with event tabs for my work rota, holidays, pay days etc.

HTC Droid Eris :: Cannot Stand HTC App

Jan 8, 2010

I know I've asked a lot of questions about getting the stock Android apps and keyboards, etc. But I am very concerned as it may mean taking back my Eris.

For some reason, I just cannot stand the HTC apps. For example, the Messaging app, the black notification bar and different battery icon, the Mail app, etc. They just look cheap or something. I don't use Sense UI, I have it set to Default Home. I don't really like HTC's keyboard as much as the stock Android one either. I bought the Eris because of the price, and how much lighter and thinner it is and how much better it looks than the Motorola Droid. However, I would really love to know if we can get the stock Android look and feel, for example the stock Android keyboard, stock notification bar color, stock messaging app, after the 2.0/2.1 update or after it is rooted. It just looks so much more dark and rich. I don't like white color schemes like in the HTC messaging app. (And don't say use Handcent because I don't like it either and I don't want to replace any apps.) Is it possible to just install the stock Android OS after it is rooted?
