Android :: Display Simple Text Label / Description Bubble When User Taps On OverlayItem In MapView?

Dec 29, 2009

I would like to further annotate the custom markers I have placed on a MapView (using ItemizedOverlay) by displaying a simple text label that appears for a particular item when the onTap event is fired.

This is a trivial exercise in the Google Maps JavaScript API and in MapKit on iPhone, but it is not obvious to me what the best or easiest way to do this is on Android.

Android : Want App To Display Description Corresponding To User's Responses

Oct 5, 2010

Okay, so I'm writing my first Android app and am basically stuck. The app is a short 4 question quiz with two choices per question. This creates 16 possible results, which I've created descriptions for. I want the app to display the description corresponding to the user's responses on each of the questions after the 4th question is answered. Right now I am storing the values in a string, which is supposed to build upon the previous string answer, after each question. So the first answer is t1, the second answer is t2, and so on. Here is the code for the second question: My problem is that the strings won't hold the values I assign them in the previous question. I have a textview that briefly displays the values returned by the question's answer string (t2 for Question2) and it displays null alpha or nullbeta, depending on the user's response. How do I retain the t1's previously assigned value into Question2 so I can add to it? For instance, if T = "alpha" from Question1, and the user selects button b1 in Question2 how do I make t2 actually equal "alphagamma" instead of "nullgamma"? Is this even possible with strings?

Android :: How To Create Message Bubble With 2 Buttons / Appears On Top Of Overlayitem

Mar 20, 2010

I currently have implemented an overlayitem that shows an icon for geopoint on a map application in Android. When the icon is clicked, it brings up an AlertDialog from the onTap method below.Does anyone know how to display a map message bubble directly above the icon overlayitem with 2 callout buttons one to the left of the title and one to the right of the bubble? Does anyone know how to make the overlayitem draggable so I can press and hold it and drag it across the map. I am trying to duplicate the draggable icon behavior that's available on the iPhone.

Android :: Detect When User Taps On View?

Jan 10, 2010

I want to detect when a user taps anywhere in a view in my Android application. My code looks like this:

linearLayout = (LinearLayout) findViewById(; // main layout
// ...
// ...
public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Touch!", 1000);
if (event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Down!", 1000);
return true;
return false;

but when I click on the view, I don't get Toast! Do touch events work in the emulator -- or have I got something wrong in my code?

Android :: Mapview Doesn't Show Traffic Until User Interacts With Map

Jun 27, 2010

I have a MapActivity. If it's set to an appropriate location and zoom level to see traffic none is shown after it's first created until you interact with the map (click on it, drag, etc) at which point traffic shows up. Naturally I want traffic to show up without any user interaction after it loads but I've been unable to figure out how to trigger it. Any ideas?

Android :: Access / Change Text Label On Tab?

Oct 9, 2010

I have an Android app with 3 tabs in a TabHost (text labels, no images). I set up the tabs like so:

intent = new Intent().setClass(this, AnnouncementsActivity.class);
spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("news").setIndicator("News").setContent(intent);

I start up a background thread to fetch announcements from my server and I want to update the text label on the tab to tell the user how many new announcements there are. For example, I want to change the text on the Tab to "News (3)". How can I access and change the text label on the tab?

HTC EVO 4G :: Want Bubble Text Format Back?

Sep 26, 2010

New Evo owner here. (almost a full 24 hours old) I am coming from an iPhone, so I am still learning. I have lurked here for months, downloaded the User's Manual a month or so ago, and am still trying to learn all I can. All I can say is, in this little bit of time, I love this phone so much more than my old paper weight. But I don't want to get into that, and make another one of those threads. Earlier today I received a photo text from a friend, and when I went to view the text it was in a "bubble-like" format. I sort of liked it more than the standard format. I also noticed you could change the background colors, etc. But, being the newb I am, I pressed another option and it went away. I am lost as to how to get back to that set-up and look around at that format. Can anyone help me out with this? I would truly appreciate it.

Android :: Draw MapView - Rectangles That Automatically Re-size When User Zooms In And Out

Aug 26, 2010

My Android application has a MapView. I want to divide that MapView into a grid according to latitude and longitude, and shade the different cells of that grid different colors based upon a certain criteria. What's the simplest way to do this?

I could create semi-transparent, solid-color PNG Drawable rectangular images and put them in an ItemizedOverlay centered on the central points of the cells, but then the rectangles would grow and shrink as the user zoomed in and out on the map. I could extend MapView and override the zoom functions so that the rectangles got re-sized when the user zoomed, but that seems really complicated for something that should be simple! Please tell me a better way to do it?

HTC Hero : Way To Change Size Of Icon's Text - Label

Oct 13, 2009

Just got the HTC Hero from Sprint and so far am loving almost everything about it. One question that I hope someone can help me with:Is there a way to change the size of icon's text or label (or perhaps the text itself)? For example, I have a screen with several Google apps on it, but they look like this: "Google M..." (for Google Maps); "Google S..." (for Google Sky), etc. It would be great if I could just change this to "Maps" or "Sky."

Android :: MapView Doesn't Display Tiles - Debugging Strategies / What's Actual Problem?

Jul 10, 2010

There are a number of posts (both here & elsewhere) about why a MapView might not be displaying tile info (personally, I've liked, but there are other good ones, too).

My question is slightly different: I'm not getting tile info to show up (on my handset or in the emulator), and I'm looking for advice on what to try in order to debug this problem. As far as I can tell I've correctly located my debug.keystore, and used the Java JDK keytool to get the signature from it, which I then plugged into the Google web page, and then plugged THAT key back into my XML file. The app runs ok, it just doesn't display any tiles.

I was hoping that if I did something wrong here I'd see an error message in, say, logcat (or an exception that Eclipse might catch) that would confirm that this is the source of the error.

So here's my question - what would y'all recommend someone try in order to figure out what the actual problem is?

Android :: Draw Text With Border On MapView?

Nov 12, 2009

I'm trying to draw some text onto an MapView on Android. The drawing of the text goes fine, but it's very hard to read the text because it's white with no black border (like the rest of the text that appears naturally on MapViews to denote cities, states, and countries). I can't seem to figure how to draw the text with a black border. This is the sort of code I'm using right now (this is just example code, found in one of my overlays):

public void draw(Canvas canvas, MapView mapView, boolean shadow) {
Paint textPaint = new Paint();
textPaint.setARGB(255, 255, 255, 255);
canvas.drawText("Some Text", 100, 100, textPaint);
super.draw(canvas, mapView, shadow);}
