Android :: Keep Dynamic Views Focused Through An Orientation Change?

Nov 9, 2010

If I have a layout with lots of EditText views in a LinearLayout and the user focuses the third one down and flips out the keyboard to start typing, the entire layout is destroyed and recreated through the activity lifecycle. When everything is done, however, the third EditText is given focus again and the user never knows that anything happened and types away.

I am creating a similar layout, but due to the nature of my data, I have to dynamically create the list of EditTexts, mixed with some other views. The default layout has one EditText at the top, a ScrollView with a LinearLayout child (which will be filled with EditTexts later), and some action buttons at the bottom. I fill the LinearLayout with all the EditText fields I need (based on extras passed via intent).

This part works quite well, but the way the activty handles Runtime Configuration changes is broken now (from a UI perspective). Now if the user focuses the third EditText (which was dynamically created via new EditText()) and flips out the keyboard, the layout is destroyed and recreated, but focus is always given to the permanent EditText at the top of the screen.

Is there something I need to do when adding my dynamic views to make sure they can keep focus through orientation changes? is there a way I can work around the issue and force focus to be given to the last view that had it before the change?

Android :: Dynamic Views Focused Through Orientation Change In Android?

Nov 9, 2010

I have an activity with an EditText on top and a ScrollView with a LinearLayout inside it. The LinearLayout is populated in the onCreate method with a set of dynamic views based on an object passed with the initiating Intent. This is typically a set of EditTexts. The result is a list of EditTexts each corresponding to a different piece of data (and the dataset being edited is quite variable, so the list needs to be created dynamically like this).

The problem is, when one of these views has focus, and the orientation changes (say the user flips out the keyboard to type), the focus snaps to the EditText at the very top of the Activity. This is certainly undesired behavior as the user didn't intend to type in the top EditText when he/she flipped out the keyboard.
How can I dynamically create my list of views like this and not have this undesirable focus changing behavior?

Android :: Create Dynamic View With Droid?

Apr 25, 2010

I'm stuck on a problem and if possible I will need help from the community. I'm not looking for a ready-made solution, but something which would help me to produce the result.

I'm looking for a way to produce a dynamic activity based on a JSONArray object.
Here an example of a JSONArray object:

[ { "name": "my checkbox name",
"type": "checkbox",
"value": "one,two,three"
{ "name": "my edit text",
"type": "text",
"value": ""}...]

This JSONArray could be totally random. It could have 2 text views, 3 select menus, 1 text view and so on.

The goal is to iterate over this JSONArray and create the appropriate elements within my android code.

To produce the result I've thought of a simple switch which would render one by one my different JSONArray to an android widget.

But after that how could I have access of every property of every widget rendered?

Edit: I need as well to assign an event listener on some widget as taking the GPS coordinated...

Android :: Way To Create Dynamic Preferences For A Variable Number Of Profiles In App

Aug 22, 2010

I am looking for a way to create dynamic preferences where I don't need to hard code the preference key and I could have a variable number of preferences. Basically, my application will let the user create a multiple number of profiles and each of these profiles will save custom values for a fixed number of preferences. So this way, the user does not have to change the preferences every time he wants this app to run differently, he can just switch the profile. One way I think will work is by subclassing all the standard Preference classes and calling their setKey method with my custom preference key, containing the profile name, but this is ugly. So is there a cleaner and more standards compliant way to do this?

Android :: Way To Create Proportional Views?

Jun 29, 2010

I want to create a full-screen page that looks like this:

| -------- --------------------------- |
|| || TextView ||
|| | --------------------------- |
|| Image | ----------------- -------- |
|| View || || ||
|| || TextView || ||
|| || || Image ||
|| || || View ||
| -------- ----------------- | ||
| --------------------------- | ||
|| TextView || ||
| --------------------------- -------- |

where each ImageView takes up at most 20% of the parent layout's width.

Primary question: Really...what is the best way to do this? After hours of searching, the best idea I can come up with is to get the screen's width and simply set the views' widths to be a max of 20% of that. However, this intuitively does not seem like a best-practice solution. (Eg. if the application wasn't running in full screen, this solution wouldn't work.) A LinearLayout won't work with the way the page is laid out (appears I have to use a RelativeLayout). And I think it would be preferable to set the views' widths based on the parent view's width (as opposed to the screen's width), but I'm not clear on how to do that either, because at the time that I'm trying to set up the widths of my children views, parentView.getWidth() returns 0. Does anyone have any good, clean solutions for how to create a page as shown above?

Secondary question: Does anyone know how to wrap text around images as shown above? After still more hours of searching, I couldn't find a solution for this; seems like you need to stitch together a couple of TextViews. Is there a better way that I'm missing?

Android :: Views And Their Child Views - How To Avoid The Ugly - Boxes - When Child Views In A View Has Another Color Than Background

Jan 6, 2010

I have a simple ListView and on that ListView I have placed a number of custom defined Views. The CustomView has ImageView and two TextViews.

The CustomView also has a "stateful drawable" as background, so that the background image (a 9-patch) changes if you press the Row in the ListView. When pressing the Row, the background image changes to a Red-ish thing.

The problem is that when the background changes from the default greyish, all the Views in the CustomView (ImageView and TextViews) still have their greyish background and thus creates very ugly greay boxes on top of the now redish background.

What is the best way to solve that problem? I hoped that such things were handled automatically (as it is done in for example .NET), but I was wrong it seems.

Android :: How Can Update The All The Views Inside A TabHost When Pressing On A ContextMenu Item From Within One Of The Views

Nov 16, 2010

I am implementing a music player application in Android. My play list selection screen is implemented as a tab selector widget which contains a ListActivity inside each of the tabs: Artist, Albums, Songs.
I want to update the ListView in each of the ListActivity when I delete an item from any of the lists.

i.e. When I long press an item in the Artists list a context menu is drawn with "Delete Artist"
And it should delete all the songs from this artist in the Songs ListView, delete all the albums by this artist in the Albums ListView, and finally delete the entry for the artist in the Artist ListView.

Each of the ListActivity has its own fillData() method, which updates the ListView when the button in the context menu is pressed.

How can I call the fillData() method of the Albums ListActivity after I update the ListView inside of the Artists ListActivity?

Android :: Switching Views With RadioButton And Saving Views In Bundle

Mar 6, 2010

I have the following XML code:.................

The idea is to change the views, whenever I press one of the radio buttons. When I press a button the first time everything works out fine, but the second time I press a button, I get an IllegalStateException, and I can't quite see why I'm getting this.

Also, the Activity seems to set all my global variables to null, which is why I have to create them every time I switch from portrait to landscape or vice versa. So I would like to know if there is a way I can save my views in the Bundle, or any other way in which I can permanently save my views, so I don't have to add or create them every time, I flip the phone. And whenever I flip the phone, it seems that it rereads the main XML file, causing the RadioGroup to be set to 2D even if the 3D button is checked. This is because I've said the 2D button to be checked from when the app is first created, but I would like to also save the state of that RadioGroup.

Android :: Do Root Views Of An Activity In Android Have Any Prior Knowledge Of The Child Views That Will Be Loaded Into Them

Jan 25, 2010

Is there any way to query a root view of an activity for all of its child views even before the root view or its children have been inflated? I guess what I'm looking for is whether a view knows ahead of time what children it will have before it gets inflated, and can I get that list in some way. Bizarre I realize, but I think it will help me with some unconventional automation testing I'm working on. I haven't found anything in the API like this.

Android :: Dynamic Pin Overlays In MapView

Oct 29, 2009

I've been reading the (shoddy) documentation for the Google Maps API (MapActivity et al), and I think I have roughly worked out how it works. It seems that if you want to add a marker overlay you can use ItemizedOverlay easily, but you have to add all your markers at once. There doesn't seem to be any way to remove them.

What I want to do is query markers from an online database as the user pans around (in the same way the actual map tiles are fetched). Is there a simple way to do this?

As far as I can tell I need to subclass Overlay and implement the draw method, but where is the best place to put the code that fetches new markers when the map is panned? There doesn't seem to be an onMapChanged() method anywhere. My best guess is MapController.onKey() but that seems wrong.
