Android :: Force Screen To Switch Between Landscape / Portrait

Feb 1, 2009

Is there a way to pro grammatically force the screen to change between landscape and portrait mode? I want to allow the user to choose a menu item to rotate the screen, instead of relying on pulling out the keyboard. I am looking for something like activity.change Screen Orientation, but couldn't find such a thing in the API docs.

Android :: Height Of Screen In Portrait Mode Only?

Mar 31, 2010

How can I get the height of the device for portrait mode? I have to create a bitmap (which is zoomable) and I just want to get a rough idea what the tallest height should be. getResources().getDisplayMetrics().heightPixels; does the above return the height, in portrait mode only? I'm not binding my UI to this absolute value, it's just a rough fit.

But it won't work on Droid when its hard keyboard is popped out.

When hard keyboard is popped out, the device always renders the layout of the activity in landscape orientation first, then it switches it back to portrait orientation. How can I let the app only render the activity in portrait orientation?

Android :: Screen Orientation Landscape Back To Portrait Not Working

Mar 20, 2010

I've racked my brain for hours over this issue. I have created a main.xml and designed one for the res/layout-land (landscape) format and another one for portrait in res/layout. When I rotate the emulator (ctrl-F11), my app rotates properly to landscape using the correct main.xml, but a subsequent rotation back to portrait just keeps the landscape mail.xml. This was done in a 2.0 AVD.. Out of desperation I downloaded the new Sample Code for Multiple Resolutions and had to create a new 2.1 AVD, to my surprise rotation with this app works correctly as expected. So I then decided to try my app on the 2.1 AVD and it works perfectly. So, is this a Bug in a 2.0 AVD or is there something special I need to be doing for < 2.1 SDK versions?

Is there a screen orientation lock feature? I haven't seen it mentioned. In fact a search only turned up mention of it as a hardware button on the iPad. This would be great for using it while lying down, reclining, in the car.

Motorola Droid X :: Screen Unresponsive Portrait Mode At Bottom

Aug 26, 2010

I noticed that the screen seems unresponsive at the very bottom of the screen near the hardware buttons. It's most noticeable when typing on keyboard and trying to hit spacebar; unless I hit the spacebar right on the middle or top, it doesn't register.i.e. hitting it toward the bottom 1/3 of the spacebar. It seems noticeable when hitting the phone, app drawer, or contact icons as well. Anyone else notice this? Found this on the Motorola forums about other having similar issue.

Android :: Way To Force Screen Orientation To Landscape Right As Of Froyo?

Sep 24, 2010

We currently use Activity.setRequestedOrientation(ActivityInfo.SCREEN_ORIENTATION_x) to set (and 'freeze') the orientation of our app. Froyo now supports two landscape modes tho and we'd like to allow our users to orient the app to 'landscape right' ... ie, the orientation obtained by turning a device naturally oriented to Portrait 90 degrees clock wise.

Android :: Why Force Close Before Activity Screen Is Drawn?

Jun 29, 2010

My app keeps force closing before it starts, eclipse returns no errors in my code and my xml is good.

package com.mhe.test.scan;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;

public class main extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.main);
Button myScanButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.myScanButton); myScanButton.setOnClickListener(new Button.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {
Intent intent = new Intent("com.google.zxing.client.android.SCAN");
intent.putExtra("SCAN_MODE", "PRODUCT_MODE");
startActivityForResult(intent, 0);
} } );
} EditText totalbox = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.totalbox);
public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent intent) {
if (requestCode == 0) { if (resultCode == RESULT_OK) {
String contents = intent.getStringExtra("SCAN_RESULT");
// Handle successful scan totalbox.setText(contents)
} else if (resultCode == RESULT_CANCELED) {
// Handle cancel totalbox.setText("@string/bummer");
} } } }
Essentially it is supposed to call zxing Barcode Scanner to scan a barcode on a button click and return the result into an EditText field.

Android :: Force Screen Orientation And Destroy Call

Aug 27, 2009

I want my Activity to be always in portrait mode and I do NOT want the onDestroy() method to be called. There are some interesting articles about that at: http://www.androidguys.com/2008/11/24/rotational-forces-part-four/

The solution seems to be: In AndroidManifest.xml:

CODE:...............

I've tried it and it seems to work. Is there any other alternative or is it the correct solution?

Android :: User Preference (Any Way To Force Screen Rotation)

Apr 18, 2010

I've got an app that I don't want to auto-rotate. Currently, I've got it setup so that it is always in portrait mode. However, I'd like to add a setting to my preferences where the user can choose either portrait or landscape mode. Is there a way to force screen rotation? Or, could I perhaps make two different layout XML files, one for portrait and one for landscape, and programmatically choose which to use?

Android :: Strange Force Close On Acore When Adding A Home Screen Shortcut

Jan 2, 2010

I want to add home screen shortcuts to individual chat rooms, in my app.

Here's my code to do so:

CODE:.............

When I go to add the shortcut to my home screen, I get a Force Close, not on my own process, but on com.android.acore(!). I've run the debugger and verified that my code gets executed all the way to the call to finish().

If I do this instead for the EXTRA_SHORTCUT_ICON:

intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SHORTCUT_ICON, R.drawable.icon);

It works fine and places the shortcut, and the shortcut behaves correctly -- but of course the shortcut has the stock Android icon, not mine, since this isn't the proper way to specify the icon.

When I look at the source code of other apps that have done this, and at the one example of it in the official Android reference area, my code looks identical. My icon's a standard 48x48 png that I use for the app's main icon, without problems. I've verified this problem on an emulator running stock 1.6, haven't tested other versions.

General :: Force Games To Lower Screen Resolution?

Aug 30, 2012

I own a galaxy nexus and the performance of a few HD games are under my expectations, even with a bus overclocked kernel! (i've tried many, to no use )

Is there is a way to force selected apps to run at a lower screen resolution? say 540x960? i don't mind if it doesn't run in full screen, i just prefer a constant 60FPS over a few extra details!

General :: Force Stopping Specific App Via Icon On Home Screen?

Jul 5, 2013

I've thought there might be a shell script I could run, maybe get an app that can run shell scripts from an icon on the home screen--but I don't know what that script would need to be, since it couldn't be about killing a process because that process ID is probably going to be different every time, and I don't know if it would require root. Rooting my phone is not an option.

I'm going to assume though that there's probably no answer to this and that I'll just have to keep going in by hand to force stop the app via prefs/apps/name-of-app/force stop. I just wish these app makers would have an exit option. Twitter and Vine and Growlr are examples of these programs with this kind of behavior. Facebook as well, but that'll just reload itself when you force quit it because it's a special "system app". I mean, I'm not expecting them to exit when I just go to the home screen, that would be silly, but I'd like SOME sort of option to close them besides going through the hassle of force stopping them via the OS preferences.

I want there to be NO chance whatsoever that these programs are going to access data in some way once I'm done using them. I have no problem with whatever the programs want to do when I WANT them running, but when I'm done using them, I want to be able to quit them, and it has nothing to do with wanting to have more free memory.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Force Closes - Phone Freaks Out And Shuts The Screen Off

Nov 9, 2010

Everytime i reboot my phone, I get bunch of problems with my phone. when I try to open the phone dialer I get a force close on com.google.process.acore. Sometimes it completely prevents me from using the phone.

Then on occasion the phone freaks out and shuts the screen off, but leaves the navigation lights on the bottom of the phone. At that point the phone is completely unusable for about 1-2minutes. Sometimes when it comes back on, it starts rerunning the media scanner.
