Android : Get Localized Label Of Phone Types?

Aug 24, 2010

When changing the custom locale the label of the phone types change to the appropriate language. Does anybody know how to get the localized label of the phone types?

I pick a contact in my app to get its phone number and if there is more then one number I use an AlertDialog to let the user select the currect one. In this pick list, I want to show the label of the type, so it's easier for the user to select. Since they labels are somewhere in the Android system, it must be possible to get the localized label. Unfortunately, the Phone.LABEL is null when reading the phone number.

Android :: Add Margin Between A Radiobutton Its Label In Phone?

Jan 25, 2010

Is it possible to add a little bit of space between a RadioButton and the label while still using Android's built-in components? By default the text looks a little scrunched.

<RadioButton android:id="@+id/rb1"
android:text="My Text"/>

I've tried a couple of things:

Specifying margin and padding seem to add space around the entire element (button and text, together). That makes sense, but doesn't do what I need.
Creating a custom drawable via XML specifying images for the checked and unchecked states, then adding a few extra pixels to the right side of each image. This should work, but now you are stepping outside the default UI. (Not the end of the world, but not ideal)
Add extra whitespace to the beginning of each label. Android seems to trim a leading space character, as in " My String", but specifying unicode U+00A0, as in "u00A0My String" does the trick. This works, but it seems kinda dirty.

Any better solutions?

Android :: Attribute Must Be Localized

Sep 30, 2009

I'm trying to compile an app via Android 1.6, and got errors shown below. It said some strings in TextView and Button are not localized. I know how to fix them. It's easy to add them to strings.xml. But I still doubt why I need to localize every string. I don't think the strings like '1024' (pure number) or '80 x 25' need to be localized. Can't I set some strings to be non-localized? I searched SDK 1.6 documents, but can't find any help.

Android :: Format For An EBook Like Text To Share With Most Of Mobile Phone Types?

Aug 5, 2010

There is a description about a product or event that people would like to share among them. This can be a simple text or rich text too.

They are looking into which format is the best for this purpose. They would like to see compatible with as many phones as possible. We are talking about phones that have Bluetooth.

Also the text is longer than the length of an SMS, so the SMS format is not suitable

What would you recommend?
And what do you think what would be the best way to share that between phones?

Motorola Droid :: Types Of Phone Accessories?

Dec 21, 2009

I'm just wondering what types of accessories Droid users have bought. I have the Multimedia docking and the car dock both from Motorola. I bought them on the VZW website and got both for around $22 bucks each. I've been happy with both even though I haven't been driving much. Has anyone seen a car dock that doesn't block the camera? Mine does. I wanted to launch Qik or Ustream Broadcaster while I drive around. Just thought it would make for some cool video.

Motorola Droid :: Gmail Label Options - Skip Inbox Still Alert On Phone

Nov 28, 2009

What exactly does the gmail option "Labels: select wich labels are snycronised" do? Does it mean if I had a label set up and told it to go directly to that label and skip the inbox that i would still get an alert on my phone? The reason i am asking is because before i got this phone, i had a label in my gmail called "craigslist". Everything dealing with craigslist went into this and skipped the inbox. Thats worked well but i still need to be alerted when i get a new offer from craigslist. Will that snyc label option do what i want it to do?

Media : Different Types Of Notification Alerts / App To Setup On Phone?

Jan 4, 2010

I want to have a different alert tone or ringtone for different types of notifications: a different one for texts, for emails, and for voicemails. I have been able to do this with just about every other type of phone I've had in the past; I can't understand why these more expensive, more technologically advanced phones dump them all into one category ("Set as notification tone"). Am I missing something here? Is there an app I need or a setting on the phone I'm not seeing?

Just to be clear, I care less about whether I can use customized ringtones for these alerts than just being able to distinguish between when I'm getting a text or an email. And if it helps to know, I have a Samsung Moment and my husband has a HTC Hero, and we are both having this problem.

Android :: Android Contacts - Incorrect Localized Collation / Sorting

Nov 22, 2010

this is my problem: I'm writing an alternative contacts app which is specified to work with A LOT of different languages and alphabets. When querying names in my own language, Swedish, the names using umlaut characters are sorted in an illogical manner to me, but logical to unicode i suppose:

Should be/Swedish style: A, B, C, ..., Z, Å, Ä, Ö.

Query result: A, Å, Ä, B, ..., N, O, Ö, P, ...

I assume this will be a problem in any language that deviates from the latin alphabet. All tests I've made are on the emulator. My dev group are making changes to the framework so low-level answers are welcome as well.....

Android :: Launcher Label Vs Activity Title

Aug 15, 2010

I want to give my application launcher icon (the one that is displayed on the startscreen!) a different, shorter caption. It seems the launcher takes its label from the mainfest section about the main activity's label, as here:

<activity android:name="MainActivity" android:label="@string/app_short_name">
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

I already changed the original reference to my app's name @string/app_name to a different, shorter string resource here. BUT - big BUT: this also of course changes this activity's default title! And I did not want that to happen, there's enough space for a long application name! Setting the long title again in onCreate using the setTitle(int) method does no good either, because the short name will be visible to the user for a short time, but long enough to notice!

And - please don't answer my question by refering to a custom titlebar... I do not want to go that long way, just because of a stupid string title! It's a pain to draw a custom title bar for so little effect! Is there no easy way to just give the launcher a different string to display?

Android :: Ways To Show Vertical Label

Aug 11, 2009

I need 2 ways of showing vertical label in Android:

Horizontal label turned 90 degrees counterclockwise (letters on the side)
Horizontal label with letters one under the other (like a store sign)

Do I need to develop custom widgets for both cases (one case), can I make TextView to render that way, and what would be a good way to do something like that if I need to go completely custom?

Android :: Gmail Label Names Get Truncated

Sep 13, 2010

When I'm reading my Gmail with the HTC EVO and I go to "Change Labels. My label list only shows 15 or so characters. Since I have nested labels (Google IMAP enabled) that is not nearly enough and it is impossible to read the last part of my Label. Which makes it hard to assign labels. Is there any way while changing a label to see more of the label name?
