Android :: How To Check If User Defined Service Is Already Running

Sep 6, 2010

I have a service that is running within the context of my application. It gets invoked at the start of the activity and then gets update when new data is inserted or deleted from the database. The problem is that everytime I start the activity , it restarts the service. As you may have guessed - not a very intuitive design. Therefore I was wondering if there is a way to determine if the service is already running before starting it. I know I can bind to the service but I do not want that since the main activity needs to exits after the database operation is completed. I know for system services, you can get the service details from the application context. How do you do it for user defined service?

Android :: Check If Intent Service Is Already Running?

Apr 6, 2010

Sorry for the newbie question, but does anyone know how I can check whether an IntentService is already running? I'm starting an IntentService from onCreate within a normal Activity, and that means that if the user minimises and maximises the application, it gets called twice. I'm wondering if I need to use something like the solution here http://bit.ly/du3VW5 or whether there's a simpler way.

Android :: User Defined Application Properties?

Aug 28, 2009

Where is the right place to specify general user-defined properties, like a host address or a service mail address ? The properties should be accessible from my activities.

I would like to specify such attributes within the AndroidManifest.xml, but there seems to be no elements available for user-defined properties. So the only way may be to put such properties into a resource file as strings or to hide them into the source code...

Android :: Get User Defined Environment Variables?

Sep 20, 2010

I would like to use self defined Environment variables in my source code.

I use System.getenv() to do this and the code line looks like this. Log.d("MyTest","== MyEnv " + System.getenv("AP") + " ANDROID_ASSETS:" + System.getenv("ANDROID_ASSETS"));

Before I execute my code I define my AP variable with export: export AP="12345" and the this is my output of set command

ANDROID_ASSETS=/system/app
ANDROID_BOOTLOGO=1
ANDROID_DATA=/data
ANDROID_PROPERTY_WORKSPACE=9,32768
ANDROID_ROOT=/system
AP=12345

Then I execute my code and I get this line from logcat

D/MyTest( 5363): == MyEnv null ANDROID_ASSETS:/system/app

The value for my defined Environment variable is null. Any suggestions on why it didn't work?

Android :: Saving ArrayList Of User Defined Objects

Aug 10, 2010

I am working on an application where I am saving the state of an application in an ArrayList. Now, to save this state, I tried to use Serialization. But, somewhere in the user defined object, I am using Button, which is not letting me serialize the entire object. I wanted to know, is there any other way of saving this array list between onPause and onResume? I even tried onSaveInstanceState, but it doesn't have support for Array List.

General :: Where Are User Defined Fields In Android Contacts

Apr 29, 2012

Have been a long time user of Outlook and Blackberry and store a lot of information in the User Defined Fields. Those fields seem to have been eliminated from all of the Android Contact Apps. I don't see them in Motorola Corporate Sync, Touch Down or Moxier Mail. Am I missing something, can't believe the developers of Android apps would just skip those fields. Any App that I can store and sync those fields. Google Contacts has the fields. I have just upgraded from a Blackberry Bold to a Verizon Droid Maxx. Love the big screen on the phone, struggling with the touch keyboard and really struggling with losing half of my contact information.

Android :: Check Activity Stack From Service?

Aug 19, 2010

I have an app that starts a service, then starts another activity previously selected by the user. Everything works on my app except I'm trying to get the service to kill itself, after it leaves the other activity without it having to come back to my activity. I've looked everywhere to see if anyone knows how to peek() search() the Activity Stack from a Service. Another way of wording is to check the foreground process from a service.
