Android :: HttpURLConnection Doesn't Send Correct User-Agent Header

Sep 15, 2009

I have a server that uses User Agent header to identify the device that is connecting to it. But when i connect to the server using HttpURLConnection i get no User Agent header, but when i connect with the browser it sends the correct User Agent.

For testing i am using an echo server that replies with the headers it found on the request.

When i connect with browser i get: eg: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 1.5; en-fr; HTC Hero Build/CUPCAKE) AppleWebKit/528.5+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1.2 Mobile Safari/525.20.1 Up.Link/6.3.1.20.06.3.1.20.0.

But when i connect by code with UrlConnection i get: User-Agent: UNAVAILABLE.

Does anyone know we i get different behaviors? How i can i connect in the same way the browser does?

What i really need is not only the User-Agent header, i also need some special headers (x-up-subno actually). This header is added by the APN of the operator, but for some reason when i connect by code that headers are not added to the request.

From browser:

Android :: Web Browsers With User Agent Switching?

Sep 16, 2010

I am trying to see if there is more than the normal popular web browsers out there that support user agent switching. I am looking for those that support either custom or iOS settings.

Before I get attacked for wanting to emulate a iOS product I will explain.

The company I work for uses a 3rd party vendor for eBooks for our students we work with. They use a proprietary software that only worked on Mac or PC's to download the book as well as a online website.

Yesterday the vendor launched an app for the iOS that allows the users to download the books to their devices. They also altered the online version of the site to work perfectly with iOS devices.

They refuse to take into consideration Android devices and the website will not display the eBooks properly on any android device.

However, when playing around with Dolphin and xScope the User Agent settings have iPhone/iPad in them. After enabling them, the site thinks its a iOS device and the content works beautifully with it.

What I am trying to do is catalog the other browsers out there that support user agent switching to try to catalog the ones we can suggest to students to use.

Android :: Retrieve User-Agent Programatically Without Having A WebView In Activity?

Sep 2, 2010

Is there a way to retrieve Browser's user-agent without having a WebView in activity?

I know it is possible to get it via WebView:

WebView view = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.someview);
String ua = view.getSettings().getUserAgentString() ;

But in my case I don't have/need a webview object and I don't want to create it just for retrieving user-agent string.

General :: Change Android Mail Client User-agent For Corporate Exchange

Nov 8, 2012

My company only allows mobile access to corporate e-mail through WIndows phone. As an Android advocate, i prefer my own mobile device.

My only two choices are to access through my Android Chrome browser or find a way to make my Jelly-bean Android mail app look like it is a Windows phone. ...or a 3rd part mail app that looks like a Windows/windows phone mail client

I prefer the mail client route as it keeps in sync with updates.

General :: Change User Agent String On Opera Mini 7

Jul 9, 2013

ok so i go on some sites that show what phone i'm using, some browsers show the phone, but opera mini 7 always show 'posted from opera mini 7'. could i change that at all?

my phone is a chinese one but i'm guessing that makes no difference, but it'd be nice if i could type my own message in so it read something like 'posted from [my own text here]'

i could think of a few funny things to put, or simply just put iOcean X7 (as that's my phone)

i'm guessing if i go into my files and folders, i'd find something somewhere, but going in there scares me.

Sprint HTC Hero :: How To Change User Agent String Setting On Stock Droid Browser?

Dec 18, 2009

A while ago I found a tip somewhere on how to get to some additional hidden android browser settings including how to change the user agent string so that the browser would identify itself as a desktop browser or iPhone browser while surfing. This setting is reset between sessions, I didn't use it frequently and eventually forgot how to go about making the change. Recently I had a need to access these hidden browser settings again and it took quite a long and frustrating search effort to finally locate this information which does not seem to be widely publicized. So, in an effort to save anyone else this trouble, I figured I would post the information on how to do this on a couple Android boards that I frequent and also include a few words that might be picked up as search terms for anyone else trying to find this info. The procedure is very simple. I currently have an HTC Sprint Hero running Android 1.5, so I'm not sure what other devices or builds this will work on..

Android :: Clicking Elements Doesn't Display Correct Values / Point Where It Would Pull Old?

Apr 14, 2010

I apologize if this code looks a bit like a mess (considering the length); I figured I'd just include everything that goes on in my program at the moment.

I'm attempting to create a fairly simple Tic Tac Toe app for Android. I've set up my UI nicely so far so that there are a "grid" of TextViews. As a sort of "debug" right now, I have it so that when one clicks on a TextView, it should display the value of buttonId in a message box. Right now, it displays the correct assigned value for the first element I click, but no matter what I click afterwards, it always just displays the first value buttonID had. I attempted to debug it but couldn't exactly find a point where it would pull the old value (to the best of my knowledge, it reassigned the value).

There's a good possibility I'm missing something small, because this is my first Android project (of any note). Can someone help get different values of buttonId to appear or point out the error in my logic? The code...

Android :: Header - Views And Buttons - How To Attach Listeners To Buttons In A Header That Does Not Have Its Own Activity

Jan 6, 2010

I have touched on this question here, where Christopher gave an answer to this, but I dont really get it so I thought its time to make it a real question, not just a "follow up" =)

As it stands, the application Im writing has 4 different screens:
1. Screen 1 - list of nodes (main screen)
2. Screen 2 - options menu, tableLayout with buttons
3. Screen 3 - navigation
4. Screen 4 - text details on version etc

These screens can be navigated to/from using a "header" View that is placed on top. the header then has 4 different buttons:

+--------------------+
| menu with buttons |
+--------------------+
| |
| |
| |
| C O N T E N T |
| |
| |
| |
+--------------------+

The header is just an XML-file (header.xml) with a few buttons. That header.xml is the included in the Layouts using the include-markup. For example, the main.xml has the line:

<include layout="@layout/header"></include>

The header show up alright, but the question is - what is the correct approach to attach OnClickListeners for the buttons in the header?

Christopher pointed out that you could create an Activity class and do the hooks there, like this:

CODE:............

First, I cant make it work since the method setupHeaderButtons isnt accessible from FirstActivity.
Secondly, is this the right way to go at it?
