Android :: Preferences - How To Load The Default Values When User Hasnt Used Preferences-screen

Apr 22, 2010

I am using a PreferenceActivity to let the user set some values. I am feeding it the xml file with the defined preferences.

I have set all the android:defaultValue="" for them.

When I start my application, I need the preferences, or if they are not set yet manually, I want the default values:

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

However, when android:defaultValue="true" I still get false. So, it looks like the defaultValues set in the XML are not used anywhere but when initializing the preferences-screen.

I don't want to hardcode the default values in the getBoolean() method. So, is there a way get the default-values with only defining these in 1 place?

Android :: Can I Launch Different Activities On Startup Depending On User Preferences

Nov 2, 2010

I have a ListActivity and a MapActivity. I would like to launch either one of these activities on application startup that has been chosen by the user in a preferences window.

So far the only way I see to launch an activity on application startup is to specify it in the application manifest file using...code...

I am thinking I might have to start an activity that does nothing but looks at the user preferences and then launches either the ListActivity or MapActivity. Seems like a waste to have an activity do nothing but launch another activity. In my research I have not found any solution to this problem.

Android :: Specify Which Item Gets Default Focus On Activity Startup?

Apr 11, 2009

How can you specify which item gets the default focus on Activity startup? Using requestFocus programmatically does not work. On setContextView the first focusable item listed in the XML is given the default focus. When using RelativeLayout, the first item listed is not always the desired item or necessarily on top.

Android : Save Preferences Other Than Shared Preferences?

Mar 19, 2010

My application is used on multiple platforms so it saves it preferences to a file (rather than to the standard Android SharedPreferences).

Is there any easy of reusing the PreferenceActivity to save preferences to a file or is it a case of creating a whole new activity to do the job? If the latter is the case is there a layout I can use that will make the activity look like the normal preferences screen? PreferenceActivity uses com.android.internal.R.layout.preference_list_content but this doesn't appear to be available to apps for reuse.

HTC Droid Eris :: Any Way To Load Default Android Lock Screen?

Feb 24, 2010

I absolutely hate the sense lock screen. The downward swipe unlocks way to easily. If I don't have a pattern lock enabled my pocket sends all kind of crazy messages and phone calls. I dislike the pattern lock because I basically have to unlock my phone twice every time I want to use it. Is there a way to load the default android lock screen as it appears on the Driod or Nexus 1? The sideways swipe seems much more secure to me. I have tried other apps like lock 2.0 but then you lose the slide to answer and my pocket answers for me before I know I have a call.

Motorola Droid :: Startup Programs - Edit What Loads On Startup

Every time I start my phone it seems that every program in the app catalog starts up. Until I activate the Advanced Task Killer and shut them all down, the thing runs like a hog. I have quite a few programs installed, but I dont use them all all of the time. Why do they all start up and is there any way beside the ATK to stop them? Is there any way to modify the startup files?

Android :: User Preferences File Vs App Preferences File

Jun 23, 2010

My android application has two kinds of preferences:

1) I have user preferences defined in res/xml/preferences.xml so that users can manage their preferences with a PreferenceActivity.

2) I'd like to define another file for global configuration preferences of my app.

What is the best way to manage my app config preferences? Should I create another XML file with config values or should I specify those config values in strings.xml? What is the best practice for managing config preferences?

Android :: Load Single App During Load And Not Allowing The User To Step Out Of It

Oct 22, 2010

I have been assigned the task to use an android tablet to run a single app in an enterprise setting. Ideally, when one switches on the tablet this app should be loaded perhaps during startup and the user need not step out of this app. The app logic itself is rather easy but I am wondering if it is at all possible to load a single app during load and not allowing the user to step out of it.

Android :: Possible To Load A Layout XML At Runtime And Load Into Activity?

Sep 4, 2010

Is it possible to load a layout XML at runtime and load into activity?

In my app, I have various types of data like Person, Company, City, etc; The requirement is to dynamically load the layout, find views by tags (property names like Person.name, Person.address) and then fill in data. For example, if user has selected an object of type Company, we want to load a company.xml layout, inflate it and then associate various properties (company name, company slogan, city, address, revenue) to tagged views. One possibility I see here is - each view in the layout will be associated with property-name as tag and then appropriate data will be loaded in appropriate views.

What should be the best design you would recommend?

Android :: How To Implement Exclusive Preferences?

Jul 9, 2009

I would like to give users a choice of starting one of three different activities by choosing from three mutually choices. And I would like to provide users these choices as Preferences. If I use CheckboxPreference, user can select more than choices. Something like "RadioGroupPreference" would be good but it is not available from SDK. Can mutually exclusive preferences be implemented? Pointers or suggestions are greater appreciated.

Android :: Preferences Not Saved When Resume App

Jan 22, 2009

I'm having this problem with one of my apps where some people are reporting that their preferences are not being saved when they close and resume the app. The preferences theyre talking about happen to be actual Preferences (i.e. the built-in preferences manager for an activity). They say they're not doing anything special, just exiting the app and going back to it. Does anyone know why the prefs wouldn't be saved for only this select few people? I'm at a complete loss.

Android :: Launching A Dialog From Preferences?

Is there a way to launch a dialog (say, the dialog I show to users the first time they launch the app) from a preferences entry? I don't see any examples doing this in the API Demos, nor have I seen it out in the wild. I do see a class called DialogPreference, but this doesn't seem to be what I want.
