Android :: Different Versions Of Searchable.xml For Different Sdk Targets?

Nov 3, 2009

I have implemented a SearchManager which make uses of a searchable.xml with all the settings and put it in the xml/ directory.

I tried to create a new directory called xml_v4/ to add some attributes (the android:includeInGlobalSearch ie) which isn't supported in sdk3/1.5 but the xml directory seems not to be supported by the dir_suffixes.

How do I deal with this?

Android :: Multiple Versions Of Same Class File For Different SDK Targets?

Nov 5, 2009

This is for an Android application but I'm broadening the question to Java as I don't know how this is usually implemented. Assuming you have a project that targets a specific SDK version. A new release of the SDK is backward incompatible and requires changing three lines in one class. How is this managed in Java without duplicating any code(or by duplicating the least amount)?

I don't want to create two projects for only 3 lines that are different. What I'm trying to achieve in the end is a single executable that'll work for both versions. In C/C++, you'd have a #define based on the version. How do I achieve the same thing in Java?

Android :: How Does PackageManager Detect What Architecture APK Targets?

Aug 11, 2010

i'm currently trying to specifically target ARMv7 custom hardware and I'm facing issues when trying to install the APK. When I try doing "adb install app.apk" Logcat informs me that: W/PackageManager( 1062): Native ABI mismatch from package file And does not install the APK. With searching I was able to trace down that the problem might have something to do with the architectures not matching on the APK and the platform. Is this it? How does the PackageManager find out the architecture from the APK file? I'm guessing it's not trying to execute the binary or anything, it just checks the files meta data? If so, is there a place in the APK where this information is located? Or am I completely hitting blank here and I should look somewhere else?

Android :: Is Binary Representation Of Native Types Guaranteed Same On All Targets?

Aug 5, 2010

I"m planning to store my data in a binary format as a resource, read it into an int buffer and basically pass it straight down to a native C++ function, which might cast it to a struct/class and work with it. No pointers, obviously, just ints and floats. The question is - what kind of fixing up do I need to do? I suppose that I need to check ByteOrder.nativeOrder(), figure out if it's big Indian or little Indian, and perform byte-swapping if need be. Other than that, floats are presumably guaranteed to be expected in IEEE 754 format? Are there any other caveats I'm completely overlooking here? (Also - since I'm compiling using the NDK, I know what architecture it is already (ARMv7-A, in my case), so can I technically skip the Indian shenanigans and just take the data the way it is?)

Android :: Alternative Of Iphone's Searchable List?

May 6, 2010

In iPhone, they have got an option of creating such a list which gives them ability to jump to a particular character. see the pic attached

Do we have any such thing in Android?

I can setTextFilterEnabled(true) but that requires the keyboard to be present, while perhaps there now way to implicitly show keyboard on the device as we have in the emulator.

I have tried setFastScrollEnabled(true) it is good, but doesn't let you jump to a particular character.

Android :: Different Hint Strings For Searchable Activities?

Oct 29, 2010

I am supporting search in my app, I'd like to display a unique hint in the search box depending on what activity is being viewed.

To that end, I have a two different searchable.xml files in my xml folder:


When I reference searchable.xml, everything works as expected. The second searchable xml file has the same contents as the first, but this does not work:


Pressing the search key does not display the search box. If I just reference the first searchable instead, it works fine:


Again, both have the same content. It looks like there is a dependency on the name "searchable.xml" within android?

If we're not allowed to have searchables named anything but searchable.xml, how do we specify different hint strings for different activities?

For example:

Android :: Searchable Dictionary Example - Update Search Bar

Sep 18, 2009

For those who are familiar with the search bar this would be a quick answer (hopefully). If you look @ the searchable dictionary example ( SearchableDictionary/index.html) it uses a content provider to populate suggestions. That works great however when I use the navigation keys to focus on certain suggestions this does not update my current search string. And also how is it possible that instead of launching the search straight away, when a person clicks on a suggestion it only replaces the current search query. An example may help better understand the question.

Press Search Use keyboard to enter the letter 'a' in the search box The suggestions "apple" "altogether" "apricot" are shown

I use the down navigation key to get to" apricot", however the text in the search box is still just "a", I want it to become "apricot"

And also when I press apricot on the suggestion I dont want it to launch the intent but rather just replace the text in search box to the text selected, and only actually launch the intent when the user clicks the search button/enter key.

I'm sure its just a value I need to set somewhere but I cant seem to find it in the documentation.

Android :: How To Get Rid If Intermediary Page In Searchable Dictionary-Like App

Jul 27, 2010

I am working on a search app and since I am a beginner, I decided to start from the searchable dictionary sample, which is quite similar to what I'm trying to achieve. Got it to work, but I have a problem: the sample loads a blank page initially, telling the user to press on the search button to start performing a search. Once search is pressed, a new page loads with a search field and button on top, allowing the user to start searching for stuff.

What I want to do is get rid of that intermediary page, so that the search field and button are loaded from the beginning, on the very first screen the app loads when started. Any ideas on how to do this? Detailed instructions/examples would be greatly appreciated, as I am a beginner in Android programming.

Android :: Searchable Activity's Intent.getAction() Null?

Apr 25, 2010

I've followed the SearchManager documentation yet am still having trouble making one of my app's activities searchable. From my activity, the Search dialog appears, I enter a query, hit search, my activity reopens, then I see this in the log:


It appears to me that everything is fine up until the last three lines. The "NI" lines are getIntent().toString(), getIntent().getAction(), and getIntent().hasExtra(SearchManager.QUERY) respectively.

ActivityManager appears to be starting my activity with the correct action. Then when my activity starts, it contains no action!? What am I doing wrong?

The relevant portion of my manifest is:

HTC Incredible :: Contact Is No Longer Listed Or Searchable Under People

Sep 13, 2010

I want to use the Favorites App to make it easier to call frequently used numbers. However, I discovered that if I, for instance, put my best friend's cell phone number as a favorite icon I can no longer find his contact to add his home number to a favorites icon. The app seems to allow for only one favorite icon per contact. I am sure I am doing something wrong and there must be a way to have two favorite icons for the same contact but different phone numbers such as home and cell.In addition, sometimes when I add a contact to the Favorites app, the contact is no longer listed or searchable under People. Weird, no?

Android :: Loading Google Maps Data Into Searchable Data Structure

Mar 2, 2010

For my CS bachelors I am doing a Senior project using android and google maps.My vision was to do a (relatively) simple Dijkstra shortest path using google maps road data. I was going to add elevation change along with 2D distance. I am doing well playing with maps in android but I am completely stumped trying to access google maps data in any sort of searchable form.How would I go about accessing the data for say intersections of roads (lat/long) in a particular area?There has to be a way to pull that data in some sort of tree form. It seems like it may be possible with kml?Any pointers would be awesome.I want my paths to follow roads but If i cant this is going to turn into an orienteering application fairly fast.

Android : How To Maintain Two Different Versions Of Same App?

Jan 8, 2010

The requirement is totally simple: I want to have a lite and pro version of an app. There is a little bit of difference between those two apps, but they are 99% identically. Unfortunately it seems that the best choice is to really treat this as two projects that are one and the same and copy over the source code and assets from one to the other. The Android Manifest file must be different, because the Android Market - for some reason - makes the implementation's package name the ID. Working around this ID issue the straight forward approach would be to have a third project with the common code that exports its code, libraries and in a best case scenario also the ressources to the other two objects. Unfortunately this doesn't work. Only the actual Android projects generate the R.class and so the common project would need to be dependent on it..

Android :: Targeting Multiple OS Versions

Nov 17, 2009

We are upgrading our application to add 2.0 support. I have read and the older blog post I want to avoid using reflection if possible. I have found that if I set my minSdkVersion="3" in the application manifest but in my build path in eclipse point to the Adroid 2.0 jar file I can compile with direct calls to 2.0 code (with the relevant code to ensure they are not invoked on <2.0 devices). My question is will people with pre 2.0 devices be able to see the application in the market place in this case? What are other people using for multi-targeting different API levels with the same package.
