Android : How To Launch Droid Activity From An AlertDialog?

Nov 22, 2009

I am trying to create a small pop-up in my Android application to let the user choose from one of many items, ala a ListView. I am hoping to make it show up as a translucent box that overlays on the screen, as opposed to completely occupying it like Activities usually do. One technique for doing this that I've heard is possible is to launch an Activity in an AlertDialog box. This would be perfect - it's the ideal size and has a lot of the mechanical properties I'm looking for, but I'm totally unable to find any more specifics of this technique. Is this possible? And if not, what is the preferred way of accomplishing something like this?

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 External Activity In Current Activity's Process?

Aug 27, 2010

My app is comprised of a set of reusable Activities that other apps can reuse. For various reasons, I would like my Activities to be launched in context of the invoking Activity's process, instead of always being launched in my Activity's process (default behavior on Android). How can I achieve this?

Mar 12, 2010

I am trying to figure out what is the best way to go about creating dialogs.

Android :: Trying To Create Basic AlertDialog Using Activity With Theme Of Theme.Dialog

Sep 10, 2010

I'm trying to create a basic AlertDialog using an activity with a theme of Theme.Dialog.What I want is for there to be a horizontal bar between the title and the message. However, the bar is not being resized correctly. Rather than being the width of the activity, the bar is the width of the message text. This means that if the activity is being expanded by the message, then the bar will fill the whole activity, so it looks correct. However, if the message width is less than the activity width, the bar only displays above the part of the activity with the text. I've tried every single combination of "fill_parent" and "wrap_content" that I can think of, and none of those work.I've also tried using RelativeLayout and placing the bar above the message text, but that also doesn't work. If I use the RelativeLayout approach and set the bar to fill_parent, it causes the activity to expand to fill the whole screen width, which is also undesirable. Ideally, I want the text placed, the activity width computed, and the bar resized to that width (without affecting it). Is there some way to flag a view to fill the parent view but not to affect its size?

Android :: Launch Activity Without UI?

Apr 24, 2010

Is it in any way possible to launch an activity from the main function without having a UI? i.e. is there a way to create a sort of "wrapper" around another activity, i.e. by launching the main activity, it takes you to another activity automatically. If that is not possible, is there a way to remove the main activity from the stack so that clicking the back button does not take you to a blank UI?
Here's an example of what I'm trying to do:

public class WrapperActivity extends Activity {

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
final Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_DIAL, Uri.parse("tel:555-1212"));
startActivity(intent);
}
}

Android :: Launch Activity At Certain Time

Dec 28, 2009

I'm new to Android development, so I might be missing something obvious. I want to launch an activity when the user's phone clock hits a specified time (similar to an alarm). However, I'm not sure how I would go about doing this as constant polling of the clock seems inefficient and a waste of resources. Do I need to capture broadcast events from the lclock, or use PendingIntents?

Android :: Launch An Activity In A New Process

Jul 29, 2010

In order to keep some native code happy, I need to launch an activity in a new process. Does anyone know how to do this?

I can set the activity's process attribute in the manifest, but this will cause *all* instances of the activity to appear in the *same* process, which I can't have.

I'm willing to use internal APIs for this, and I've found Process.start(), but it's not at all clear how this is supposed to be used.

Android :: How To Update App's Icon Launch Activity?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm currently running into an issue that makes sense but I'm not too sure how to resolve it... Here is the scenario: App v1 icon LAUNCH is set to Activity Main from the manifest file. App v2 icon LAUNCH is set to Activity All from the manifest file and Activity Main no longer exists. After updating to App v2 the app icon fails to launch the application saying it doesn't exist! After a restart of the phone things work. So how can I refresh the applications package or better the launch icon and shortcut icons so that my users don't experience this after an upgrade of my newest app version?

Android :: RatingBar OnClick To Launch New Activity

Aug 9, 2010

I have a ListView that uses different XML files to create Views and make items out of. One of these XML files contains a RatingBar. Everything displays and looks excellent. I'm trying to attach an onClick handler to the RatingBar to launch a new Activity. My RatingBar is of style ?android:attr/ratingBarStyleSmall; so it's just an indicator (I want the small RatingBar click to take the user to an Activity where they can do various ratings).

My problem is the onClick handler for the RatingBar never gets executed. What makes it more interesting is that I've used the same code to make a LinearLayout clickable and it works fine. My Adapter's getView looks as such:...............
