Android : How To Customize Tabs On State / How To Make Selector A Drawable?

Apr 21, 2009

I know how to put the icon on each tab, that is no problem. I also ran across this : Stack Overflow thread on pretty much same thing I followed one of the links from that question, and found this Pretty much, it said use a selector defined in the xml, sure, did that. But there is no id associated w/ it so I am not sure how to get the selector function as a drawable so I can use it as the icon for the tabs. Maybe I am going about this the wrong way.. But this is what I have, and obviously missing something.

Android :: Defining Selector Drawable

Feb 14, 2009

I am trying to setup a selector drawable in my asset file like this: * 2 different images for 'on'/'off' mode in rest mode (i.e. it does not has focus) * another 2 different images for 'on'/'off' mode in focus mode (i.e. it has the focus). In my case, the rest mode works, but the 'focus' mode does not. Can you please tell me what am I missing in the focus mode? Code...

Android :: 9-patches In - Selector - Drawable For Custom Button Style

Nov 28, 2009

I'm having a bit of a problem with a custom button style. I have the button states (9-patch drawables) set up in a <selector> drawable. The style I'm going for is a button that looks like it gets pushed down, i.e., you can see the front edge of the button until you press it. It works fine for the button itself, but the contents of the Button (or ImageButton) don't move when pressed, even though I have the 9-patch areas set up to move the content area for the depressed button states. It seems like it's keeping the same 9-patch areas no matter which image it's showing.

Here's an animated GIF to help make the problem a little clearer, since I'm awful at explaining things: http://www.crappytools.net/button_problem.gif The button moves when pressed, but the icon inside stays still. I played with the Draw 9-Patch utility, and it shows that the content area in the depressed image should be shifting downwards like intended.

Android :: Can An <selector> Be Based On An Object's Instead Of A View's State?

Aug 3, 2010

I think this is a pretty simple question but I'm having trouble finding the answer out there.I'm developing an android application (currently developing against v1.5 API) and one of the activities use a ListView. I want to be able to set the properties of each List Item based on the state of an in memory object rather than the state of the view or list item.Here is a simple example....say I have a Person class who's public members are defined as follows.

Android :: Possible To Make Droid Tabs Slide / Get Similar Effect Without Them?

Apr 11, 2010

I'm new to Android development, and I was wondering if anyone knew either how to make Tabs slide, or how to get a similar effect without tabs. I have quite a few tabs in my application, and it does not look good on devices with smaller screens. Or maybe tabs are not what I am looking for. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I'd like to reproduce something similar to Photoshop.com Mobile's effects screen. I know this is possible.

Android : Way To Make A Button / Drawable Remain Clicked

Sep 17, 2009

I have a GridView with a BaseAdapter that cycles through the elements making views for each element or cell in the grid.

What I would like to do is create a clickable image/button, and when the user clicks or touches it, for it to remain clicked and highlighted so that they make click on several if they so choose.

I have tried, ImageButtons, Buttons, ImageViews, LayerDrawables(with a swapable background color drawable), ToggleButtons, CheckBoxes, derived my own CompoundButton, but nothing seems to work.

I was a teeny bit successful with a ImageButton where I could create it selected, but if the user clicked on it, I couldn't get that visual state back.

Android :: Drawable Images - Cropping Edges To Make Rounded

Feb 16, 2010

I have a small project in which I download images from Internet in the form of drawable and use them in Imageview for which I have provided functionality similar to an Imagebutton but without the gray edges. The question is that is there any functionality in Android (similar to IPhone) by which we can crop the drawable from edges to make them rounded edged drawable. Even if its a "not-tested-neither-recommended" method, do let me know. I would like to work on this a bit.

Android :: Can't Make SlidingDrawer Closed By Default State / Way To Do

Aug 25, 2010

I'm currently having trouble with a SlidingDrawer. I want it to be closed when the application starts so it doesn't get in the way. However, it is determined that it will be open, despite putting slide.close() in the onCreate() of my activity. It seems to be closed if i use slide.animateClose() instead, but this slows my application down loads.

How do I make it closed by default? code...

Android :: Scrollable Tabs - Dolphin Browser When Using Multiple Tabs

Jun 19, 2010

I'm currently working on my first android application. I am using a tabbed layout for my application. I followed the tutorial for this on the dev guide and ran into a problem. The tutorial only used three tabs, but I have a need for more. As such, the tabs resize and bunch up. I was hoping someone could tell me how I can make them scroll, like in dolphin browser when using multiple tabs.

KitKat 4.4 :: (Chrome Browser) Make Tabs Continue Loading When Not Active Window?

I'd like to make my browser continue loading homepages, even when I'm not starring at the respective tab. Hardware-wise this should be entirely possible with a Quad-Core CPU.

Right now, there is no root or custom ROM on my device which I'm willing to change in favor of the above improvement.

Android :: TABS In 2.0 Vs 1.5 - Rounded Corners TABS

Feb 27, 2010

I simply use the tabwidget :

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

Why are my tabs so uggly in 2.0 (no more rounded corners as in 1.5/1.6) ?

ugly tabs here

=>

This was better

What should I do now to show "rounded corners" TABS to Nexus One (for exemple) users ;-) ?

Is it because of the following manifest lines :

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

I have to keep android:anyDensity="true" otherwise I've got a problem with re-sizing of the menus described here

As a separate question, my users can change the Locale within my app itself, I then "redraw" the menus using onPrepareOptionsMenu (Menu menu) to refresh the strings within the menu with the new language choosen by the user. Is there an equivalent for TABS (I have local strings within the Title of the TABS) or do I have to delete all the tabs and re-create them from scratch ?

Android :: Tabs - MapView - Activities Within Tabs

Oct 19, 2009

We're in the process of writing an app that has 4 tabs: Map, People, Places, Events. The People, Places, and Events in the App show up as Icons on the map. By default the People, Places, and Events tabs each show a listview, custom rendered, displaying all the People, Places, and Events respectively.

Now, right now each of the tabs has as its content an Intent set to launch the corresponding activity. For instance, there is a MapTabActivity that extends MapActivity, a ShowPeopleListActivity that shows the people, and so on and so forth.

I see a lot of StackOverflow questions/answers saying that due to various limitations in the way the TabHost is setup, it's best NOT to use activities as the content of tabs. For instance, it's impossible to launch a new activity and have it take the place of the existing activity within a tab, whereas it's possible to switch out a View with a different view.

Now, I'm at a crossroads. We've (for better or worse) devoted a fair amount of time trying to get this app to work the way it's currently structured, with the Activities as the content of the tabs. When an icon corresponding to a Person, Place, or Event is clicked, it fires off a VIEW Intent on a URI corresponding to that object; this is picked up by an Activity that then shows the object. The same mechanism is at work both in the Map and in the individual lists. We really like the loose coupling this provides us; we just give a VIEW command and the URI to the person/place/event and it automatically brings us to the right activity. Granted, the activity that's launched covers up the tab view rather than appearing inside of that, but we were willing to live with this.

Here's an issue though: from the Show activity, we want to be able to go back to the map, centered at that person, place, or event. We can launch a new activity to show the map again, but now we have the map activity as the content of the tab, plus the show activity, plus the new map activity in the activity stack; given how resource intensive the map activity is, I'm guessing this is not the ideal way to go.

I guess my question is, is there a GOOD tutorial somewhere showing exactly how to do complex tasks with a TabHost? I've seen HelloTabWidget; I'm looking for something much more sophisticated than this. I'm worried that if we switch to the View based way of doing things, we'll have to do a LOT of housekeeping to intercept all the back events, try to switch out the views, etc., etc., as well as strongly coupling our program in a way we don't want.

Android :: Changing Displayed State Of Views Based On Parent ViewGroup's State

Aug 11, 2010

I have a compound UI component built up from a ViewGroup containing a number of TextView, ImageView etc. components. Many of these have StateListDrawables as their images/backgrounds. Is there any way of making them select from this drawable based on the state of the parent ViewGroup rather than the component itself? Ideally I want to be able to change the visual state of all children of the ViewGroup (text colour, image etc) based on the state of the ViewGroup, preferably without having to hook up complex logical code. This seems like a fairly common sort of requirement, so I was hoping it would be straightforward in Android - am I going to be disappointed?

Android :: Phone State Listener State Transitions

Feb 8, 2009

I'm a little confused by what I'm seeing with regards to phone state transitions via the PhoneStateListener. When I receive a call, this is what happens: (call comes in) RINGING -> IDLE (I pick up) OFFHOOK (I hang up) IDLE It's that first transition from RINGING to IDLE without any interaction from me (not ending the call, not answering the call) that confuses me. Do I really have to implement an idle counter to know that an incoming call has really ended? Seems like the reported phone state represents some sort of phone state that isn't the obvious one.Is this a bug or am I just not in tune with the paradigm here?
