Android :: How To Run Something Only When Application Starts?

Mar 27, 2010

I have a dialog popup to indicate how long I want an activity to run.Seems simple enough, but its difficult to determine when the activity is really starting.If the user opens the keyboard on a G1 and thereby goes into landscape, that reruns the activities onCreate method.I can't have a static for the class or even create an application class, because I can't determine when the 'application' goes away. Even after destroying the only activity, the application is apparently still alive.Is there a way to determine that onCreate has been called because of the keyboard being extended or landscape mode invoked?

Android : Progress Dialog When Application Starts

Jun 23, 2009

I am trying to initiate a progress bar when my application starts. The way my application works is that it collects info from the db that takes around 5 to 6 secs where the screen is completely black. I am trying to initiate a progress dialog that gets triggered WITHOUT a button click or any other UI interaction but just when the user starts the application. All the previous posts handled something with handlers and UI interactions.

Android :: App To Choose What Starts Up At Boot

Aug 16, 2010

I have a number of app's that seem to start and run at random.

I still want these apps on the on phone, so don't want to uninstall, just want to be able to choose when they start up - rather than them starting at random and running in background.

Some of the app's running:

Music
Footprints
Stocks
FM Radio
Juiceplotter
Fake-call-me-Pro

Is there an APP similar to AUTORUNS (which I use on my Windows PC) that lets me choose what programs run at boot?

Android : App Starts In 1.5 Emulator But Doesn't In 1.6

Apr 29, 2010

My app works on 1.5 emulator and 1.5 device. When i try to start it on 1.6 emulator, it produces strange exceptions (doesn't even start). I don't have any 1.6 device to try this app if it works on a real device.
I get some warnings in Eclipse ( warning: Ignoring InnerClasses attribute for an anonymous inner class that doesn't come with an associated EnclosingMethod attribute. This class was probably produced by a broken compiler.) and get cant rid of them (i think they come from some apache jars that i need to make http multipart posts).

Is it possible that this jars are cause for my exceptions in 1.6 or is it something else?

Android :: Activity Starts Remote Service

Oct 8, 2010

My initial activity is basically a splash screen while preforming initialization and login in to network server. To save memory I want to finish() the splash activity once it starts the main menu activity. I still want the remote service to operate. Testing shows it does. But am I going to get into trouble doing this? I know I can restart the remote from the main menu activity but I am trying to save overhead by not starting it twice. The remote service is required by the splash activity.

Android :: Best Way For Service That Starts Activity To Communicate With It

Feb 16, 2010

I have a service that listens to a socket. When receiving certain input it is to create an activity. When receiving other input, it is to kill this activity. I have struggled for a while to make the service communicate with the activity through AIDL (http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/aidl.html), but this seems to not be effective. I think AIDL is only effective when the process that is to be talked to is a service, not when it is an activity? I would love some directions or suggestions on how to solve my problem.

Android :: How To Find Out When Activity Starts Or Get Focus?

I would need to know when one activity starts or get's focus. I need this notification for any activity regardless of his type, name or whatever - not searching for one specific activity. Checked the ActivityMonitor and the Intent and I haven't found a generic intent for this purpose. Or I hadn't understood well the descriptions from the Intent ACTION_xxxxx.

Android :: Set Focus On TextView When Activity Starts?

Aug 16, 2010

There are an EditText and a TextView in my Activity. I want to set focus on the TextView when the Activity starts. I used the following code:

TextView myTextView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.my_text_vew);
myTextView.setFocusable(true);
myTextView.setOnClickListener(this);
myTextView.requestFocus();

But the code doesn't work. The EditText always receives focus when the activity starts.

Android :: Menu Option Starts Thread - Hangs

Mar 12, 2009

I am developing a game based on the SurfaceView/LunarLander example in the sample code. I have one activity, with one menu option that is "new game". My activity listens for the menu selection, and once new game is selected, doStart of the Game thread is called. The game starts up after 3-4 seconds, but the menu option sticks around on the screen until the game has started. I think the main thread is waiting on the doStart to do its thing, but since it's creating a new thread, how do I get it to just start the thread and continue its business of hiding the menu option right away, instead of after 3 seconds?

Android :: Soft Keyboard Appears When Activity Starts

Aug 13, 2010

I have an activity which loads a TableLayout. This is made up of TextView and EditView fields. When I run my app within the emulator the layout appears correctly (WITHOUT the soft keyboard appearing). When I run the app from a device (HTC Evo) and enter the activity the soft keyboard ALWAYS appears. I tried doing an OnFocusChange() for the first field in the layout and then doing:

InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE); imm.hideSoftInputFromWindow(tvIndications.getWindowToken(), 0);

It doesn't work. The soft keyboard always appears.

Android :: Show Soft Keyboard When Activity Starts

Mar 17, 2010

I have 2 activities, A and B. When A starts, it checks for a condition and if true, it calls startActivityForResult() to start B. B only takes text input so it makes sense for the soft keyboard to automatically pop up when B start. When the activity starts, the EditText already has focus and it ready for input. The problem is that the keyboard never shows up, even with windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible" set in the manifest under the <activity> tag for B. I also tried with the value set to stateVisible. Since it doesn't show up automatically, I have to tap the EditText to make it show.

Android :: Soft Keyboard Does Not Show When Activity Starts

Apr 26, 2010

I have added android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysVisible" to my Activity in AndroidManifest.xml and here's my layout:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<EditText android:id="@+id/EditText01" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"></EditText>
<EditText android:id="@+id/EditText02" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"></EditText>
<Button android:id="@+id/Button01" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Send"></Button>
</LinearLayout>

When the Activity starts, the EditText is focused, but soft keyboard isn't displayed. If I click on the EditText, then I see the soft keyboard. Do I need to set aditional parameters to display soft keyboard when my Activity starts?

Android :: Music Starts Automatically When Headphones Plugged In?

Oct 29, 2010

Would love a good music app for my captivate which bypasses everything and immediately goes to the last song played and begins from there. Bypasses the unlock screen and any "last apps" I was using. A true "plug and play". Is there such an app? Right now I have to plug in the phones, unlock the phone, back out of my messenger or email program, select the music app, select the album or artist and then the songs. Its all a bit tiring if I do it somewhat frequently like in and out of the car.

Android :: Getting Network Restarted After Phone Starts Sleeping

Apr 10, 2009

I have a long lived service, it wakes up (via the AlarmManager) at intervals and connects to a web server. If the phone goes to sleep and one of my polling intervals happens the phone wakes up enough to let me attempt to connect to the network but the ConnectionManager claims there is no network. Given the system log this is correct, it was torn down. Pushing "Menu" once is enough to get the network back up and then my service can connect. How do I get the network to reconstruct itself?

Android :: How To Stop Music App Starts When Connected To Bluetooth?

May 27, 2010

New user....about 1 month. Have been using my Motorola Droid synced to Ford's Microsoft Sync for making phone calls (2010 F-150). Two problems I could use some advice on: 1. To answer an incoming call, I have to slide the "slider" on the lock screen of my phone. Is there a button i can push because this kind of defeats the handsfree feature? 2. Recently used the bluetooth audio to listen to an audiobook on a long drive. Worked very well. Now, whenever I have my phone in my truck, it automatically starts the Music App and begins playing some random selection. Is there a way to disable this feature? I tried using the wireless blutooth settings for MS Sync and disabling audio, but as soon as I got back into my truck, it connected and played again.

Android : How To Ensure View Isn't In Focus When Activity Starts?

Oct 2, 2009

I open an Activity which has a number of elements... some TextViews, some Buttons, and an EditText. For some reason, when the activity starts, the EditText is focused by default, which causes the keypad to appear hiding the screen. I only want this EditText to be in focus if the user clicks into it. How can I ensure that this View isn't in focus when the activity starts? I've tried calling requestFocus() on one of the buttons, but it hasn't changed anything. Ideally, I don't want anything in focus at all.

Android :: Tasker Google Maps Starts / Stops GPS Repeatedly

Aug 9, 2010

I just started using Tasker on my Droid X and have found it to be very useful. I have had a problem with a Profile that I built around Google Maps. After reading about a GPS bug on Droid X (I believe the same issue happens with WiFi, but it not relevant here) I created a profile that turns on GPS when Maps is started and turns off GPS on exit. In order to verify the on/off tasks are being doing at the correct times, I added a popup to the end of the on/off tasks. If this worked as I thought it would, I should see the popup happen after launching Maps and I should also see it when Maps closes: So after setting this profile up in Tasker and launching Maps, I see maps open and the GPS on popup appear, but after a few seconds, the GPS off popup appears. After a few seconds, the GPS on popup appears and the GPS off popup apear again. This repeats for as long as I have the Maps app open. Maybe this has something to do with how Google Maps launches/works/exits, but I'm at a loss here. Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

Android :: Widget Starting Service Also Starts Main Activity

May 3, 2010

I have a widget that is supposed to start and stop a service (start it when it's not running, stop it when it is). This is working fine, however, each time the service is started, my app's main activity is also launched, which I don't want from the app's manifest, it works as I want it to (without launching the main-activity, just the service), but then I obviously don't have a main activity anymore.This is how I start the service (I would assume this is the normal way, and I can't see any reference to what might cause the MAIN intent to fire).
