Android :: How To Filter Objects To Display Onscreen Objects On Map?

Jun 15, 2010

I have an application that have a Google map on Google Android 1.5 since we have been working on the application for a long time, we are not in stage of upgrading to the newest framework, so we are using 1.5. Now, I have map locations that are dynamically generated and drawn on the map at run-time to visualize some streams, Up to this point the application is working fine, Now my problem is that I am trying to filter the objects ( addresses) to visualize only the on-screen ones. I do NOT want to visualize the addresses that are off-screen. The way I am trying to do this is to check the screen-coordinates of each object (address) before visualizing it, then it the coordinates (x,y) more than (0,0) and less than (320, 460). I should visualize it. I am trying to use this approach, but it is not working for some reasons, I have tried many posts but could not understand why, there must be something missing somewhere that I am not aware of.

Android :: Pass Objects Around Activities Using A HashMap Of WeakReferences To Objects?

Oct 26, 2010

The FAQ mentions a method of passing objects around activities. (It is not clear to me): "A HashMap of WeakReferences to Objects. You can also use a HashMap of WeakReferences to Objects with Long keys. When an activity wants to pass an object to another activity, it simply puts the object in the map and sends the key (which is a unique Long based on a counter or time stamp) to the recipient activity via intent extras. The recipient activity retrieves the object using this key.".................

Android :: Use Spinner To Hide / Display View Objects?

Sep 26, 2010

For an Android application, I'm trying to use a Spinner which, when an option is selected, will hide/display relevant View objects. For my application, these objects are an EditText and an associated TextView label for the field. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the EditText to hide/display, and when I add it code to hide/display the TextView, I get a NullPointerException. I presume that since I am laying out the view objects in a RelativeLayout, by hiding one of the view objects, I am removing its relationship with other view objects, hence the NullPointer.

Can anyone figure out why this might be happening? Here's my code...

Android :: How To Manage Objects ?

Sep 8, 2010

I am new to Android development. I want to know how you all manage objects. For eg we make object as A a = new A(); and then manage that object. But, here, we call A.class; My concern is that i don't want to call on Create(),nor do i want to push UI screen I just want to make 1 static object for 1 screen;and want to manage it throughout my application. that is, instead of calling A.class; can i call A a = new A(),and manage that object without pushing,and whenever i need i push that screen. Is there someway?

Android :: Passing An ArrayList Of Objects

Nov 12, 2010

Is there a way to pass an Array List of objects between activities? The myObject implements Parcelable and I'm able to successfully pass the objects around individually, but that means I need to have an exact amount of "myObjects" coded. I want this to dynamically grow/shrink by what the user does with the app. I have seen some posts on the web about doing:

Activity A
ArrayList<myObject> myObjArray = new ArrayList<myObject>();

Then when passing this into the intent I would use:
intent.putParcelableArrayListExtra("myObjArray", myObjArray);

Activity B
ArrayList<myObject> myObjArray = new ArrayList<myObject>();
Bundle extras = getIntent().getExtras(); myObjArray = extras.getParcelableArray("myObjArray");

However, the myObjArray always gets filled with "null". How can I achieve this?

I am new to this android stuff and SQLlite etc.I am going to log some numbers at a certain interval, and will put them into a dynamic histogram, by dynamic i mean that there will be a maximum number of samples in the histogram, the histogram and age stuff should be persisted either in db or plain file.For simplicity, I would like the samples to be stored in a blob type datafield, but i cannot se if this is possible. Alternative i could have another table with the samples Or I could simply have files with filename = name and content = concern might be unclear by now, but put simply, what is most effecient regarding power usage?

Android :: Writing Objects From Thread

Jul 22, 2010

I have a game object that I save like this in OnPause()try {final ObjectOutputStream os = new ObjectOutputStream(openFileOutput(gameName + ".sav", 0)); os.writeObject(gameObject); os.reset();} catch (final Exception e) {e.printStackTrace();This works fine except on some of the older or slower phones it can sometimes take too long to complete. I end up getting a ANR (Activity Not Responding) error. I would like to move this to a thread to prevent blocking the UI. However when I try this I run into multiple problems.First openFileOutput is only available in my activity. I worked around this by passing the ObjectOutputStream to the thread. After that I could save the object but later when I tried to reload I get a Exeception. does anyone have a good pattern for writing objects to a file from a thread?

Android :: How To Send Objects Through Bundle?

I need to pass a reference to the class that does the majority of my processing through a bundle. The problem is it has nothing to do with intents or contexts and has a large amount of non-primitive objects. How do I package the class into a parcelable/serializable and pass it to a startActivityForResult?

Android :: Correct Way To Add Objects To An ArrayList

Aug 19, 2010

I am trying to add an object to an arraylist but when I view the results of the array list, it keeps adding the same object over and over to the arraylist. I was wondering what the correct way to implement this would be.


I have double checked my JSONArray data and made sure they are not duplicates. It seems to keep adding the first object over and over.

Android :: Pass Objects From One Dialog To Other

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to design an activity in Android which consist in a ListView with a button to add items to the List.

When the button is clicked, it opens a chain of Dialogs to configure the new item (each Dialog configures one attribute of the item Object). When the last Dialog is validated, the item is added to the list.

I was thinking of creating a new item Object when the first Dialog opens and using a setXXX() method on each Dialog validation to configure the object, but how am I supposed to pass the object from one Dialog to another?

I got it working using final objects, but it doesn't look clean to me at all. Plus I would have liked to use the activity Dialog manager methods such as onCreateDialog() and showDialog() to manage the Dialogs.

What is the cleanest way to do this?

Android :: Eclipse MAT Does Not Appear To Show All App's Objects / How To See It

Feb 4, 2010

I have created an hprof file by inserting the statement Debug.dumpHprofData("/sdcard/myapp.hprof"); in my app's code; I have then run the hprof file through hprof-conv and opened the converted file in Eclipse.

Following the advice of the MAT "Cheat Sheet" I have obtained an analysis of my app's memory usage by going to "Leak Identification -> Component Report" entering "com.prepbgg.*" and hitting Finish.

I know that my app is consuming large amounts of memory: in particular at the stage where I called dumpHprofData it had a one megapixel bitmap object and a canvas that must have consumes several hundred KB. (I also suspect that it is leaking significant amounts of memory because performance degrades severely after the screen has been rotated a few times.)

However, the Component Report for com.prepbgg.* shows total memory of only 38.7KB. The Histogram view shows for (presumably this is the total of all apps including mine) 404 objects and Shallow Heap 12,928. Is that 12,928 bytes?

Clearly, my app consumes more than 38.7KB and the Bitmap far more than 12,928 bytes. Where am I going wrong? How can I see the total memory consumed by my app?

Android :: Bundles And Serializable Objects - What Is Actually Stored?

Mar 24, 2009

was wondering about the behavior of Bundles and serializable objects. If I put a serializable object into a bundle, what is serialized then, the reference to the object or the object itself? I always assumed that the object itself would be serialized to a byte stream when calling putExtra() and re-created from that representation when calling getSerializableExtra(), but I recently stumbled upon a piece of code that put an entire view into a Bundle in thread A, retrieved it from that bundle in thread B, performed a modification on it and this modification actually became visible. This can only happen if the reference to that view was stored, not the view itself, right? Otherwise, the modification had been applied to a copy of that view and would be meaningless.

Android :: Unmarshalling XML Files Into Java Objects

Aug 29, 2009

I'm making use of an API on the internet that is marshalling objects to XML files. Given that the XSD files are also available I'd like to be able to unmarshall them back in to Java objects once I've downloaded the files.After looking around it looks like JAXB is the default library for doing this in Java, but as I'm developing a mobile app the extra 8.6MB dependency just isn't acceptable. I also found XStream, but it still weighs in at 7.9MB.Poking around the Android SDK it looks like the only real XML parser available is SAX.

Android :: Download Multiple Objects From Same Server

May 5, 2010

How can I utilize Connection: Keep-Alive option, re-use connection and download multiple objects from the same server? HTTP connection consists of opening a socket, sending request and then readign response. For Keep-Alive option open the socket connection needs to be done only once. However I could not find in Android Java classes how this can be accomplished. URL.openConnection returns new instance of HttpURLConnection implementation for every request so HttpURLConnection cannot be cashed for reusing on multiple requests to the same server, URL object is also new for each request and also cannot be reused.

Android :: Need To Bypass Constructors When Instantiating Objects

Android :: Loading Images As Drawable Objects From URL

Jul 30, 2010

I am presently using the following piece of code to load in images as drawable objects form a URL.
Drawable drawable_from_url(String url, String src_name) throws, { return Drawable.createFromStream(((, src_name); }

This code works exactly as wanted, but there appears to be compatibility problems with it. In version 1.5, it throws a FileNotFoundException when I give it a URL. In 2.2, given the exact same URL, it works fine. The following URL is an sample input I am giving this function.
How would I load in images in a way that is compatible across the board from a URL?

Android :: Adding ArrayList Of LinearLayout Objects To UI

Jan 27, 2010

I am trying to use the following code to go through an ArrayList of LinearLayout objects, add each one to a TableLayout, and finally add that TableLayout to a ScrollView defined in the main.xml file.

ScrollView theScrollView = (ScrollView) findViewById (; TableLayout theList = new TableLayout(this); ArrayList<LinearLayout> theArray = Edit.getTheArray();

if (theArray.size() > 0) { for (int i = 0; i < theArray.size(); i++) { theList.addView(theArray.get(i)); } theScrollView.addView(theList); }

A second activity (Edit) is used to convert user input into a new LinearLayout and put it in the ArrayList. The code works successfully on the first item in the Array, however, after adding a second LinearLayout to the ArrayList and returning to the main activity, I get a force close and the following error: java.lang.IllegalStateException: The specified child already has a parent. You must call removeView() on the child's parent first.

I can't seem to figure out what is happening here. Is there another method I should be using to get my desired results?

Android :: Getting Wrong Sizes With Drawables Objects

Sep 17, 2010

I am using some drawable objects, when I instance them and paint in my canvas they doesn't get the original PNG image file size, instead they get a bigger size, so they does't paint in my canvas as I expected since I wanted them in their original sizes, why this happens?
(original file is 96x96 pixels)

mSprite = mRes.getDrawable(R.drawable.my_sprite);
mSpriteWidth = mSprite.getIntrinsicWidth();
// It returns 114, not 96 mSpriteHeight = mSprite.getIntrinsicHeight();
// It returns 114, not 96
mSprite.setBounds(coordX, coordY, coordX + mSpriteWidth, coordY + mSpriteHeight); mSprite_PipeRect.draw(canvas); //It paints at 114x114 size, it shows bigger in the screen then original size.

Something similar happens with the background but it is fixed in the "setSurfaceSize" event this way:
public void setSurfaceSize(int width, int height) {
mBackgroundImage = Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(mBackgroundImage, width, height, true);
