Android : How To Add Entry (pointing To Activity) To "Home Screen?

Sep 20, 2009

I'm writing program for Android (SDK 1.5). I would like to know how to add/register one of my program activities in "Home Screen -> Menu -> Add-> Shortcuts" (or on Hero "Home Screen -> Menu -> Add to Home-> Shortcut") so that user will be able to add it to his home screen. Is there an Intent Filter or any other way to achieve that?

Android :: Multiple Screens In One Activity Like Home Screen?

Oct 9, 2009

I am working on an application where I wish to have multiple screens (each of full display size) attached to each other horizontally, and switch between them by using the finger (swipe right / swipe left). The home screen does exactly what I want, but its implementation seems to be more complex than I thought. What would be your preferred way to achieve this functionality? Is there any Layout or View that I could reuse? More generally, it should work with the 1.5 SDK, so the gesture interface is not available.

Android :: Trying To Launch Activity / When Home Screen Widget Is Pressed

Dec 20, 2009

I'm trying to do something which really ought to be quite easy, but it's driving me crazy. I'm trying to launch an activity when a home screen widget is pressed, such as a configuration activity for the widget. I think I've followed word for word the tutorial on the Android Developers website, and even a few unofficial tutorials as well, but I must be missing something important as it doesn't work.

Android :: Launch Activity From Droid Home Screen Widget

Apr 24, 2010

I am desperately trying to get my head wrapped around how to implement home screen widgets. Right now, I (finally) was able to get a button on my widget respond to a button press setting up an intent filter in the manifest.

However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to launch an activity when the button is pressed. Basically, here's the code i have...

What I really want to do, though, is start a new activity, not display a toast message. I know it has something to do with pending intents, but I can't figure out how to get that to work.

Android :: How To Launch An Activity From A Widget And Return To Home Screen

Sep 14, 2010

I have a widget that when clicked opens an activity from same app as the widget. When the activity is closed/dismissed via a button, the user will see the full app window IF the app was previously open/in memory. Is there a way for the activity to finish and return to the home screen and not to an existing instance of the app?

Intent i = new Intent(this,RateIt.class);
PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context,
0, i, PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT);
updateViews.setOnClickPendingIntent(, pendingIntent);

Android :: Does Platform Maintain Any History Entry When Pressed Home Key

Jun 15, 2010

While developing a sample android application I have constructed two activities
1)Activity 1
2)Activity 2

Now Activity 2 is the foreground activity whereas Activity 1 is the background one. Now user presses Home key. The application(i.e. both the activities) disappear. Now is we relaunch the application we see Activity 1 as the foreground activity. My question is:

1)Does the platform maintain any history entry when pressed home key?
2)How do we take the user to the last launch activity on relaunching the application?

Android :: Unable To Start Activity - Load Home Screen Or Show Notification During Calls

Dec 18, 2009

Has anyone been successful showing a notification, starting an activity, or loading the home screen *during* a call on the Droid? All three of these actions can be done with the emulator running 2.0, but will not run from the Droid. I don't receive any type of notification that these actions fail on the Droid. Although, every action works when a call is *not* active. Missed calls during a call *do* show up in the notification bar, so I am hoping there is a way.

I understand that the notification bar can not be accessed by users during calls, but it would be nice if a notification could at least be delivered. I also understand the security and usability concerns of displaying a window or action during phone calls. Although, there are a lot of users who would like actionable functionality based on calls.

Android :: Changing Entry Point Activity To App Messes Up App Update

Aug 9, 2010

This is the second time this has happened to me now. I changed the starting activity of my app, and put out an update, and now the icon on people's phone will not open my app. The only way they can open it is through the downloads section of their Android Market app, or if they uninstall and reinstall the app, causing them to lose ALL their data. I have no problem with updates on my N1, but every other Android phone has a problem with this. Why?

Android :: Overriding The Home Key Long Press In A Category - HOME Activity

May 29, 2010

I just created my own "Home" to replace the stock android one or Sense.

All is working fine and I get all I want. My only problem is to replace to long press on home key ( that usually show the last 6 activities you launched) by my own launcher.

I successfully replace the long press on MENU button with this code:


and this part part for the long press:


But the problem is that I wasn't able to replace the KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MENU with KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HOME

Is that something locked in the code that avoid user to use a Home long press?

HTC EVO 4G :: Possible To Seal Screen From Dust Entry?

Jun 10, 2010

Some users are reporting that they have dust under their screen. Hopefully it was a manufacturing error and didn't get in there post assembly. However recent reports of other users saying water freely got under their screen when they installed a screen or body shield have me concerned. Is there a reasonable way to absolutely and definitively seal the area around the screen to prevent dust entry? It would have to be invisible to the eye for it to be feasible. I was thinking that a black thread inserted in the gap might act like a gasket and completely eliminate the possibility of dust entry. I don't know if this is even possible to do and I am too chicken to attempt it. But if it worked it would be removable too. Any thoughts on this or other ideas?

Android :: Compass Pointing Direction Other Than North

Sep 16, 2010

I'm trying to implement something that I don't even know if it's possible. So I have this class which implements a SensorEventListener like this:
private SensorEventListener mySensorEventListener = new SensorEventListener(){
@Override public void onAccuracyChanged(Sensor sensor, int accuracy) {
} @Override public void onSensorChanged(SensorEvent event) {
myCompass.updateDirection((float)event.values[0]); } };

And a class that handles the way the compass looks like this:
public static class compassLook extends View {
private Paint paintPointer = new Paint(Paint.ANTI_ALIAS_FLAG);
private Paint paintCircle = new Paint(Paint.ANTI_ALIAS_FLAG);
private Paint paintLeters = new Paint(Paint.ANTI_ALIAS_FLAG);
private boolean firstDraw; private float direction = 0 ;
public compassLook(Context context) { super(context); init();
} public compassLook(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) { super(context, attrs); init();
} public compassLook(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) {
super(context, attrs, defStyle); init(); } private void init(){
paintPointer.setStyle(Paint.Style.STROKE); paintPointer.setStrokeWidth(3);
paintPointer.setColor(Color.argb(255, 209, 114, 2)); paintCircle.setStyle(Paint.Style.STROKE);
paintCircle.setStrokeWidth(2); paintCircle.setColor(Color.argb(150, 255, 255, 255));
paintLeters.setStyle(Paint.Style.STROKE); paintLeters.setStrokeWidth(1);
paintLeters.setColor(Color.argb(230, 255, 255, 255)); paintLeters.setTextSize(12);
firstDraw = true; } @Override protected void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec) { setMeasuredDimension(MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec),
MeasureSpec.getSize(heightMeasureSpec)); } @Override protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
int cxCompass = (getMeasuredWidth()/2); int cyCompass = (getMeasuredHeight()/2);
float radiusCompass; if(cxCompass > cyCompass){ radiusCompass = (float) (cyCompass * 0.9);
} else{ radiusCompass = (float) (cxCompass * 0.9);}
canvas.drawCircle(cxCompass-50, cyCompass, radiusCompass, paintCircle);
if(!firstDraw){ // Desenho da linha que aponta canvas.drawLine(cxCompass-50, cyCompass,
(float)(cxCompass-50 + radiusCompass * Math.sin((double)(- direction) * 3.14/180)),
(float)(cyCompass - radiusCompass * Math.cos((double)(-direction) * 3.14/180)),
paintPointer); double mLatitude = (mLocation.getLatitude() / 1E6);
// I get this value from a LM request double mLongitude = (mLocation.getLongitude() / 1E6);
// I get this value from a LM request double picLatitude= Double.parseDouble(picLatitudeString);
// I get this value from a bundle double picLongitude = Double.parseDouble(picLongitudeString);
// I get this value from a bundle float direction = (float)
Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(picLongitude- mLongitude, picLatitude-mLatitude));
float distancia = (float) (Math.sqrt(Math.pow(mLatitude- picLatitude,
2) + Math.pow(mLongitude-picLongitude,2)))/2;

cyCompass+20, paintLeters); } } public void updateDirection(float dir)
{ firstDraw = false; direction = dir; invalidate(); } }
