Android :: Access Views Inside Layout When I Reuse It Multiple Times?

Aug 6, 2010

I have read the Android UI trick 2 on Android developers, which tells people how to include a layout in another layout file multiple times, and give these included layouts different id. However, the sample here is overwriting the layout id, not the id of the views IN this layout. For example, if the workspace_screen.xml looks like this: And I include it three times in another layout file. Do I end up with three TextViews with id firstText, and another three with secondText? Isn't there an id collision? And how do I find the secondText TextView in the third included layout with findViewById? What should I input in the findViewById method?

Android :: Pros - Cons Of Multiple Activities In An App Vs One Activity - Multiple Views

Aug 16, 2010

Are there design guidelines to help decide if an application with multiple views should be designed with multiple activities or just one activity and control the back button itself.

I've tried both. My most complex applications using one activity per screen. However, now that I'm successfully written an app with just one activity and handling the back button myself, I don't see any compelling reason to use multiple activities. The one activity application is much simpler and more straightforward.

What advantages of multiple activities am I missing?

Android : Multiple Handlers In A Single Activity

May 13, 2010

I've more than one Handlers in an Activity. I create all the handlers in the onCreate() of the main activity. My understanding is the handleMessage() method of each handler will never be called at the same time because all messages are put in the same queue (the Activity thread MessageQueue). Therefore, they will be executed in the order in which are put into the Queue. They will also be executed in the main activity thread. Is this correct ? Code...

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 :: Animating A Drawable On A Canvas Inside A Surfaceview

Sep 2, 2010

Is there a way to animate drawables on a canvas using the android built-in animation classes?

Ive been modeling my test application, a game, after the example apps lunarlander and jetboy. They contain a lot of reusable code, but they manually update the drawable objects in real time. It seems like using the android animation built ins would be so much easier since they provide the type of animation I needŽa simple linear movement.

Is there a way to do this, or am I better off updating my canvas in real time much like the example apps.

If there is a way, could anyone get me started with some sample code? I am currently inheriting SurfaceView in my class.

Android :: Can I Put Many Packages Inside A Single 'droid Libray Project'?

Jun 4, 2010

When I create an 'Android Library Project' is it OK to put a whole lot of different libraries in there and create a number of different packages?

If I use just one or two components from the library, will it import all the resources and packages or is it smart enough to only import the referenced resources and packages that are needed?

The alternative is to create a single 'Android Library Project' for each component which I don't want to do if I can help it.

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 :: ListView Animation Of Views Inside Adapter That Got Updated

Aug 29, 2010

Im using ListView to to show some custom data, once data is updated in the adapter i call notifyDatasetChanged(), so the view will get updated, all of this works well, my issue though is i would like to run an animation once only on items that got changed when the adapter was updated. currently i keep a copy of all the changed objects and i tried to animate the correct items through the getView() call.

However if i do it only once for every getView call then i see no animation most of the time on items that changed. if i continue to do so in successive getView calls i see animation on items that don not change as well and also the ones that changed get animated again and again.

Im guessing sometimes android calls the getView() for other reasons than showing the generated view immediately, and thats the reason it doesnt work if i do it once.

Android :: Slight Misunderstanding With Tab Activity Views And Activity

Oct 19, 2010

am not too experienced in android and i am just using the TabActivity, so please bear with me. i keep seeing post about not using activites in Tabhost but views. and am not sure which is which and if thats the reason of my latest headache? i have a code with 4 tabs like this:

// Category TabActivity class
tab.setContent(new Intent(this, Mylist.class));
tab1.setContent(new Intent(this, Mylist.class));
tab2.setContent(new Intent(this, Mylist.class));

and each tab is showing the result of a method in the Mylist Activity.is that using an activity in a tab or displaying a view? whats the difference?.i have a context menu on an item selected in the Mylist Activity which updates the list. how can i reflect the changes in the list back to the tab in other to display that particular method in the Mylist class, that was set as the tabs content. obviously this will change if i updated or deleted an item from the list when the tab is shown. i think its possible with onResume(), but don't know what to call there or is there any better way?in the Mylist class, i have tried this little piece of code to restart the TabActivity:myAdapter.deleteItem(id);

fillData(); //
Intent refereshCategory = new Intent(this, Category.class);
startActivity(refereshCategory);

its restarting the activity after the item have been deleted, but how can i only show the tab whose view was in focus when it restarts and i don't want fillData() method to be shown as it does not have to do with the tabs. i hope i made myself clear enough

Android :: Draw Multiple Shapes Using Loop - Canvas

Aug 7, 2010

I am very new to android development and have been trying to draw a square comprised of multiple smaller rectangles of different colours... Like a Mosaic essentially. Basically at the moment I am reading values from a file which assigns the colour to the smaller Rects. I am using a pair of nested for loops to try to draw the small Rects sequentially, line by line. However when the program finishes there is only one small Rect drawn which is the last one to be drawn and its colour corresponds to the first value read from the file. Here is some of my code to show you what I mean:

public SnapshotDraw(Context context) {
super(context);

for(int a = 0; a < 63; a++){
for(int b = 0; b < 63; b++){
fileName = PREFIX + "2" + EXTENSION;..............

Android :: Want Multiple Activities In A Single View

Nov 19, 2010

Were looking into Android for writing a tablet based system. Part of the design is for the system to be as modular as possible. One aspect of this is to display any "STATUS" activities in a side view on the screen. It looks like I can use PackageManager queryIntentActivities() to find the activities that show status information. But, can I display these in a single view all at the same time (via a linear layout)? The activities would be installed in separate apk's (features). Can this be accomplished using ActivityGroup? Is this even allowed in Android? Everything I've read implies that Activities take the whole screen or float on top. This implies only one activity can be active at a time where as the design I'm thinking of uses the activities more like widgets.

Android :: Using Single Intent With Multiple Buttons

Aug 12, 2010

I have an android context menu with various selections and depending on the user selection I want to start an intent. The intent starts the same activity for all the buttons but will contain different String variables depending on the selection. I am currently using a switch, case methodology for my click listener but keep running into 'duplicate local variable' problems as I try to eliminate code repetition! If anyone could provide a-bit of pseudo-code that would be even better.
