Android :: Expanding Overlay Marker On Google Maps?

Jul 20, 2010

I can draw overlay items onto google maps just fine, an image that looks like:
_____
| |
______
/

Where the "/" part is the "pin" that marks the lat/lon on the map and a picture in the middle of it. My question is, is there any way to expand this when the user clicks on it? I'll of course have to change this to some kind of dialog or layout and change it when it gets clicked.

I want to have it smaller like that with just an image when not clicked on, but when it is clicked on it expands over like a second to:

--------------------------------------
| <image> <buttons> |
| <buttons> |
| <some info here> |
| |
--------------------------------------
/

Is this possible?

Android :: Detecting Clicks On A Google Maps Overlay

Jun 15, 2009

I would like to put a bunch of dots on a google map, and have the appropriate listener called when one of them gets clicked.All i seem to be able to find is to get the location at which the click occurred, and then iterate through the dots until I find one that I think matches. Is there no listener for an arbitrary shape, like a drawable? I feel like this might be a Java question more so than android, but hopefully someone can still answer it.

Android :: Threading - Custom Google Maps Tile Overlay

Nov 4, 2010

I've been stuck for ages now trying to implement threading or background image loading for a custom tile overlay class I've been working on. I'm pretty useless when it comes to Java so threading isn't something I've had any experience with. Basically I have extended an ItemizedOverlay and in the draw() method calculate the tiles I need to display over the standard google tiles then fetch those images with a URLConnection and using BitmapFactory decode them and draw them to the canvas at the correct position on the screen so that the images are on top of the google tiles with about 50% opacity (the custom tiles are cellphone network coverage png's which are used for our web app). I initially got this all working with the tiles loading in the correct places but hit issues with memory and "freezing" while panning so implemented some basic caching and memory management to only store the tiles that are displayed on the map in memory and when downloading a tile store it to SD card.

Then I figured the freezing while panning is due to the blocking nature of downloading the images so, have been trying to implement threading. I created a class that extends AsyncTask to download the images in the background and store them to SD, in the onPostExecute method I then try to draw all the tiles. But onPostExecute never seems to fire, now I know that the AsyncTask has to be called in the main ui thread so tried to debug the execution with Thread.currentThread().getId() calls through out the code. The thread Ids through out is 1 and then 10 for the doInBackground method for the AsyncTask. Now I'm not sure if 1 is the main UI thread or not. In the extended MapActivity class I have, the onCreate method's Thread.currentThread().getId() returns 1 but I'm not sure if the MapActivity class is executed in the main ui thread? Here Romain Guy mentions that the onPostExecute method should have @Override but when I do that eclipse flags it as an error

"The method onPostExecute(Boolean...) of type TileCache.ImageLoadTask must override or implement a supertype method"
So I guess something is wrong there but the only fix eclipse offers is to remove the @Override
So I guess with out post all my source code, the question's I have are:
Is the MapActivity onCreate method called in the main ui thread?
What does the @Override error mean? or why does it show that error
Does anyone have an example of a custom tile overlay implementation with background image loading and tile caching?

Android :: Phone Maps Support Ground Overlay?

Jun 8, 2010

I have a weather image I would like to use as an overlay in the google maps android api. I would like to achieve the same result that I get from using GroundOverlay in KML files, such as

<GroundOverlay>
<name>myimage</name>
<Icon>
<href>myimage.png</href>
<viewBoundScale>0.75</viewBoundScale>
</Icon>
<LatLonBox>
<north>75.6088</north>
<south>5.0121</south>
<east>182.2805</east>
<west>120.6795</west>
</LatLonBox>
/GroundOverlay>

The above will ensure that the 4 corners of my image stay anchored to the 4 lat/long points listed, regardless of scrolling, zooming etc. Is there a way to accomplish this using the google api / maps provided for android?

Android :: Android Maps Overlay OnTap Click

May 5, 2010

Could anyone help me with my below program. I'm unable to put a transparent label containing the contents from my HelloGoogleMaps.java class (Hola, Mundo!) when i click the markers(the android icon) in the map. I would like to have the ontap event do it for different markers here so that that particular location details is popped up. It needs to be in a canvas display. Upon clicking this new canvas label, it should take me to a seperate activity displaying complete details. I'm using the sample program given in the Google Android Website http://developer.android.com/resources/tutorials/views/hello-mapview and i want to extended it to the next level. Import com.google.android.maps.GeoPoint; import com.google.android.maps.MapActivity; import com.google.android.maps.MapController; import com.google.android.maps.MapView; import com.google.android.maps.Overlay; import com.google.android.maps.OverlayItem; import android.app.Activity; import android.graphics.drawable.Drawable; import android.os.Bundle;

Android :: Google Latitude Application For Access Through Google Maps?

Mar 5, 2009

Is Google Latitude available in the UK or not, because it doesn't seem to be working for me? I have received the RC9 update for G1 and have Google Maps 3.0. Is there an a Google Latitude application that I should have or do I access everything through Google Maps? When I go the www.google.com/latitude on my G1, it offers me the option of "launching" Latitude but it just takes me to Google Maps. From there, I cannot see the locations of my Google "friends" (who have agreed to show location), neither does my own location show up on the Latitude homepage on the web (I have settings turned to "detect my location automatically").

General :: Google Maps App Doesn't Sync Names With Google Bookmarks

Apr 17, 2013

I'm using the latest version of Google Maps on JB 4.2.2 [Nexus 4]..I noticed that I cannot edit the names of my locations in "My Places" in the phone app. So I used Google Bookmarks (google.com/bookmarks) from my PC to edit/rename My Places. However, the names do not sync or carry through to the Google Maps app on the phone. The names in the app are still the generic names, coordinates or street names.

Is there any way to change the names of My Places and get them to sync with the phone app? Really baffling!

Android :: Expanding The Status Bar

Oct 1, 2010

I am creating an android app, and in the app I would like to have a button that expands the status bar. When I was thinking up the design for the app it seemed like a simple task like that would be, well, simple. But I come to find out that the StatusBarManager is not part of the public API? I can now not add functionality to an app that is clearly available just not in the public api. Is there another abstract way of expanding the status bar?

Android :: ListView Is Not Expanding As Intended

Sep 9, 2010

My scenario is like this:

CODE:........

The problem I have is that I can't get my ListView to get the right height that I want. I'll add a couple of components with my custom BaseAdapter class and everything there works as intended. But when i then debug my application i can only see 1,5 out of 3 components in the list and the rest is hidden futher down in the ListView. But how can i make my ListView calculate how many components i have and get it to show all my components direcly without having too scroll down.

Another thought is if i could populate any other kind of View with my BaseAdapter? Because the only reason I'am using ListView is because of the setAdapter() method.

Android :: LinearLayout Not Expanding Inside A ScrollView

Apr 8, 2010

I have a LinearLayout inside a ScrollView that has android:layout_height="fill_parent", but it doesn't expand to the full height of the ScrollView. My layout looks something like:

CODE:........

I can see that the LinearLayout doesn't expand the full height of the ScrollView because in Eclipse in Android Layout Editor, if I select the ScrollView (in the Outline panel) it is highlighted with a red border that fills the screen to the bottom but when I select the LinearLayout its highlight doesn't expand to the bottom of the screen. How can I get it to do so?

The effect I'm trying to achieve is to have some text and a button below it (inside the LinearLayout in level 4 there's just a button). The text can be big enough to need a scrollbar, in which case I want the user to have to scroll down in order to see the button. In case the text is not big enough for a scroll bar, I want the LinearLayout containing the button to stick to the bottom of the screen.

At first I thought I shouldn't post the full XML because it's usually a turn-down to see a huge chunk of code in a question. However, it seems it might be necessary, so here's the full layout.

CODE:........

At the moment I have resorted to android:layout_gravity="bottom" on the problematic LinearLayout, which makes the button stick to the bottom of the screen no matter what. But that also makes the text stick to the bottom of the screen, which is not exactly what I was after.

Update: scratch that, android:layout_gravity="bottom" makes the ScrollView unable to, well, scroll.

Android :: Expanding The Status Bar From An App - Permission EXPAND_STATUS_BAR?

Feb 19, 2010

For good usability in an app that I'm developing I would like to expand the status bar to show the user the first time that there is more information to be found on the expanded status bar. (The user will run several apps at the same time, and background services will post notifications. The expanded notifications link back to several the apps/activities that the user is running. )

I've been searching for a while now, but the only thing I could find was: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/Manifest.permission.ht....

I'm looking for a code example on how to expand the status bar.
