Android :: Is It Possible To Draw To Home Screen Icon?

Jun 5, 2010

I have a little app that draws moving animations in a surface view. Cute, useless time waster. I think it could be cuter if it were possible to get a surface view that mapped to the home screen icon for the app and animate that when the app is running and the icon is visible. Is that possible? I remember way back in the days of Windows 3.1, that when your app was minimized, it was possible to draw to the minimized icon as though that were the app window (actually, I guess it may just have been the app window). Anyway if such a thing is possible in Android, I'd like to try it. Anybody know?

Android :: Keep App From Restarting When Touching Icon From Home Screen

Mar 10, 2009

I want my application to resume what it is doing regardless of where I press the icon (Home screen, app picker, or running apps). Right now if my app is in the background and I press the icon on the home screen, the app restarts with my Main Activity. Once here, if I press the back button the app resumes from the activity it left off before it was put in the background. If it's running in the background and I hold the home button and select my app from the current running apps, it resumes correctly. How do I avoid my app from going to my Main activity when it is selected from the Home screen or app picker? I have tried adding the following in my Manifest XML file, but it doesn't help: <activity android:name=".Main" android:launchMode="singleTask" android:alwaysRetainTaskState="true" android: label= "@ string /app_name">

General :: Force Stopping Specific App Via Icon On Home Screen?

Jul 5, 2013

I've thought there might be a shell script I could run, maybe get an app that can run shell scripts from an icon on the home screen--but I don't know what that script would need to be, since it couldn't be about killing a process because that process ID is probably going to be different every time, and I don't know if it would require root. Rooting my phone is not an option.

I'm going to assume though that there's probably no answer to this and that I'll just have to keep going in by hand to force stop the app via prefs/apps/name-of-app/force stop. I just wish these app makers would have an exit option. Twitter and Vine and Growlr are examples of these programs with this kind of behavior. Facebook as well, but that'll just reload itself when you force quit it because it's a special "system app". I mean, I'm not expecting them to exit when I just go to the home screen, that would be silly, but I'd like SOME sort of option to close them besides going through the hassle of force stopping them via the OS preferences.

I want there to be NO chance whatsoever that these programs are going to access data in some way once I'm done using them. I have no problem with whatever the programs want to do when I WANT them running, but when I'm done using them, I want to be able to quit them, and it has nothing to do with wanting to have more free memory.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Apps Installed But No Icon On Home Screen

Nov 13, 2010

Checking out media players, I downloaded Zimly and Mixzing (thanks suze!) to compare. Both installed instantly but only Zimly appeared as an icon on the home screen. When I go to Settings>Applications>Manage applications they are both listed as installed, however I need to have Mixzing drop its icon for me to be able to use it from reviews etc I actually think that's the one I'll be keeping anyway, a clear case of sod's Law that of the two that one would be the one with a problem! I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice, same result.

Android :: Smartest Way To Draw 100 Images On Screen

May 24, 2010

First of all I'm a newbie when it comes to Android programming. So if this question is totally stupid please delete it ASAP Question: I'm going to draw a grid of 10x10 PNG images. Each image is 32x32 px. All of the images are unique. I'm thinking that the easiest way seems to be to put each image in an ImageView. If adding all ImageView's to the layout would this give me some kind of performance hit?Would there be any smarter way to draw these images?

Android :: Cannot Create New Map View To Draw To Off Screen Bitmap

Oct 29, 2010

I'm trying to create a MapView in a service (live wallpaper), but have it hidden so that I can render it to a Bitmap, and then map it to a texture to render in opengl. I have a Canvas and a Bitmap, and I intended to call myMap.draw(myCanvas) in order to get it into the correct bitmap so that I could then bind it as a texture.

When I Initialize I do the following:
myMap = new MapView(ctx, APPSTATICS.MAP_API_KEY);
I get an error:
java.lang.RuntimeException: stub at com.google.android.maps.MapView.<init> (Unknown Source)
Why I can't create a new mapview which I can use to draw to a offscreen bitmap?
