Android :: Drawable Object Where I Can Store Points For Faster Paint?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm designing a custom view which is an X/Y Plot. It's a moving graph that scrolls to the left with time and new Y values are continuously coming in at 10 per second.

I've been able to make it work with an array of integers where the array index is the X value and the integer value is the Y value, but this seems horribly inefficient (Because every time it comes time to re-paint, I have to loop 800+ times to paint the graph). Then we do it all again 10 times a second. yuck.

Can anybody think of a paintable object that I can draw points to and perform some kind of scroll transformation and then just draw the new points each time, rather than the whole canvas?

Any other ideas out there?

Android :: Can't Load Drawable Object / Want To Know Cause Of It

Oct 15, 2009

There are several custom-made graphic objects (.png files) included in the project inside res/drawable map.

All elements are normally loaded and displayed in the user interface except two icons and so far haven't figured out what causes the problem.

The code which doesn't affect the user interface as it should is...

In both cases there is only ic_volume_small displayed on the screen and the Variables window in the IDE displays the following:

R.drawable.ic_volume_small = Class not
loaded :$drawable
R.drawable.ic_volume_of_small = Class
not loaded :$drawable

The method (member of IconImage class) which should change the icon image is the following code...
Does anyone know what could cause the described problem?

Android : Layout - Map Consists Of A Drawable Object Which Represents A Room

Jun 12, 2010

I need to create a map with items on it (the map consists of a drawable object, which represents a room) and I thought about using buttons with background images for the items so that they are clickable.

I guess the AbsoluteLayout fits here the best, but unfortunately it's deprecated. What layout would you recommend me for this kind of application ? Is there another layout which supports X/Y coordinates ?

Android : Takes Drawable Object - Scale Image - Save Memory?

Aug 23, 2010

I need to know how he takes drawable object. I'm collecting some ImageView objects in array, they have background images that are rather big in resolution so they take lot of memory...

I have read somewhere that it will automatically create image with resolution that my imageView have, so i think it will take less memory than first one. Please tell me, if i set scaleType property, will it scale that image? Will that help me to save memory?

Android :: Store Object In Sqlite Database From Phone?

Android :: Way To Store XML Data In A Java Object From A SAX Parser

Jun 21, 2010

I have created a class with 3 sub classes in Java. The 3 sub classes contain variables to store information from my XML document. I am able to store in the first two for there are only single instances of the data in the XML. The third class contains variables that repeat multiple times. I want to store an object of "third class" objects. I also have a SAX parser class. I am doing this within an Android environment (1.6).

Does this make enough sense without displaying any code?

Android :: Android - Retrieving All Drawable Resources From Resources Object

Jul 11, 2010

In my Android project, I want to loop through the entire collection of Drawable resources. Normally, you can only retrieve a specific resource via its ID using something like:

InputStream is = Resources.getSystem().openRawResource(resourceId)

However, I want to get all Drawable resources where I won't know their ID's beforehand. Is there a collection I can loop through or perhaps a way to get the list of resource ID's given the resources in my project?

Or, is there a way for me in Java to extract all property values from the R.drawable static class?

Android :: Create Simple Paint Program With Zoom?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm new to Android and Java programming and I've manage to create a simple paint program, but how do I add a zoom feature? Right now I'm just extending the View class and using the "on Draw()" method. Do I have to use a Drawable to be able to add zooming functionality? I'm not really understanding the differences between the two. If I am way off base then please point me to a good tutorial on paint/zooming.

Android :: Default Paint Size Too Small On New Device

Jun 2, 2010

My app uses a custom View that does a lot of text drawing.To ensure my text is always readable I've been using the result of calling getTextSize() on a newly-created Paint() instance as the minimum size. Docs say calling 'new Paint()' sets attributes like text size to default values.One of my European users just got a Motorola Milestone phone and reports that some text is unreadably small.I believe I've duplicated this using the WVGA854 skin in a 2.1 emulator.Run in that emulator my app's smallest TextViews look fine, but the text I'm drawing myself using Paint instances where I haven't changed the text size from the default is too small. I confirmed this by commenting out all setTextSize() calls in my View subclass: the text becomes too small to read comfortably.

Android :: How To Paint Transparency - Swiss Cheese Style

Apr 4, 2010

To explain i have a bitmap which is constructed as follows

Paint a rectangle color yellow I want now to paint a smaller circle over the top of the rectangle, but i want to use transparency. so that the circle results as a hole in the rectangle. {like swiss cheese with holes }

So if i painted the bitmap over a background the background would still be visible in the Circle/hole.

setting the drawcolor drawColor(Color.TRANSPARENT) just paints a transparent object. i.e. it doesn't erase the circle area of the rectangle.

How to do...?

One option is to set the circle color to say black and then look for an option to replace black with transparent within the bitmap.... but i can't find a solution for this either.

General :: Android - SurfaceView Flickers And Sometimes Does Not Apply Proper Paint

Apr 3, 2012

The issue I am experiencing is that the SurfaceView I am using flickers. Once in a while, the objects I draw flicker and they change their size or colour.

It looks like that sometimes the application skips my calls to 'Paint.setColor()' and the one to 'Paint.setStrokeWidth()'.

I have made methods which change the used paint and then, in order to try to fix this issue, to set it back to the default paint values. Still the issue persists. I have also read that the problem might be due to the double buffering. Is it the case? I am using this code for the DrawingThread:

I also tried to use a dirty Rectangle to try to see if the issue can be fixed, but still nothing. [I might not have understood what it actually does.

class DrawingThread extends Thread {
private SurfaceHolder _surfaceHolder;
private CustomView _cv;
private boolean _run = false;

[Code] .....

I have read somewhere I should draw on a single bitmap and then draw the bitmap on the canvas. I have tried several times but I cannot manage to do so.
