Android : Launch Browser Without Starting A New Window?

Feb 9, 2009

Let's say I have an app that has a "search on Google" button. Every time the user choose it, I want to bring up the browser and run a Google search. Currently, I use: startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(url)); However, each time, it launches a new Window inside the browser. After a few times, the browser complains that it cannot open new Window anymore. Is there a way to tell the browser to re-use the last Window I created? Something like what you would do with <href=xxx target=_mywindow> in HTML?

Android :: Create Transparent Window Without Starting A New Activity?

Mar 19, 2009

I have a 2D app. When the user presses a button, I need to quickly open a translucent 3D animation and overlay that on top of the 2D app. This is similar to the "Translucent GLSurfaceView" demo in APIDemo.

However, with APIDemo on G1, it takes about 100~200ms for the new Activity to come up. For me, this is too long. Is there any way to make it faster (to about 30~60ms).

My idea is to create a transparent Window object that contains a SurfaceView and hide it. When user presses button, the Window is shown.

Android :: Starting Activity Witouth Window From Widget

Apr 17, 2010

I recently (yesterday in fact :)) started creating widgets.

So my first widget I want to create is something like: * A 2x2 widget * Containing 2 buttons * Button

1: Register current time and location * Button

2: Open up an activity where configuration can be modified, registered times and location can be viewed,...

Now the problem for me is button 1. As I only try to do some registration data (so no further user input required after pressing the button) I would like to just show a loading bar and after wards Toast a message to screen, or a popup if anything goes wrong.

This is what I do now:

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

So what happens: I click the button, a plain black screen pops up (Altough I did not specify a layout upon creating the activity), and after my work is done the Toast shows up and the activity gets 'killed'. Basically that is what I want to do except for the black screen to show up. Is it possible not to show a screen upon creating the activity?

Android :: Way To Launch Browser?

Nov 11, 2009

I am trying to create a widget that, when clicked on, launches the browser and goes to a particular URL. Unfortunately, I have had a lot of problems. I started with a (working) widget that, when clicked, opened the alarm clock. Then, using the code from another Groups post (http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/msg/ 11e54b1df3a4d279), I tried to convert it to open the browser instead. Here is my (non-working) code...

HTC Incredible :: Browser Window Limit

May 14, 2010

I went to the local VZW store to play with one. It looks as if the default web browser is limited to 3 windows, is this the case? I know stock android can handle up to 8. Is there a way of allowing more than 3 windows? or is it just a setting that was set on the store's demo phone? I know I can use an alternate browser like Opera or Dolphin (and I very well may) But isent the default browser the only one that can use the "Flash Lite" that HTC added? (Something I want to take advantage of until real flash comes)

Android : Stock 2.1 Browser Always Crashes On First Launch

Jun 19, 2010

I tried changing the homepage, but it still crashes. Ever since upgrading to 2.1 OTA, the browser has always seemed to crash on first load. Launching the browser a second time brings it back up instantly. It's rather annoying. Anyone else notice this? Is there a tweak/change available to try?

Motorola Droid :: Window Preview On Default Browser

Dec 10, 2009

I saw somewhere in a video that when you are switching windows you could see a preview of the website (like the iphone, or in my case the ipod touch). I was wondering if there was an option to enable that compared to just the name of the site and address. Figured it makes life a little easier and looks prettier!

Android :: Browser: Retrieving Sign In Details Message At Launch

Jan 31, 2010

Notice this on the stock browser when it first launches? This takes up at least 5 seconds or more when you're just trying to open up the browser to go to a site. Seems unnecessary. Would be better if it just pulled up the browser. Is there a setting to change this? I like the stock browser, otherwise and I'm not interested in Dolphin. I hear it has advertisements on it?

Android : Auto Launch Video Player In Phone From Browser Like An IPhone Does

Apr 7, 2010

I have just created and iPhone web app, which has some x264 (mp4) video files on it. When I link directly to the file on the iPhone and the user taps the link, the video player is loaded and the video starts playing. Using the app on an Android phone causes the browser to download the video instead of just playing it. Is there a way to force a video player to just boot up and play the video not download it?

Am I missing something here? PS: I'm not interested in using startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("http://www.google.com"))) as it will list all the choices for the browsing Intent.

KitKat 4.4 :: (Chrome Browser) Make Tabs Continue Loading When Not Active Window?

Apr 11, 2014

I'd like to make my browser continue loading homepages, even when I'm not starring at the respective tab. Hardware-wise this should be entirely possible with a Quad-Core CPU.

Right now, there is no root or custom ROM on my device which I'm willing to change in favor of the above improvement.

edit: 4.4.2 OS installed

HTC Eris :: Browser Crashes On Launch - XtrSense

Oct 31, 2010

My stock browser used to crash immediately upon launch, no matter where it was being launched from. So I always have to start the browser twice.

But I recently rooted and went with xtrSense. At first it all seemed smoother, but after a few days, it's back to crashing on launch again. Once I re-launch, it seems to work fine, but this is still a hassle.

Thought rooting would b my magic "fix-all".
