Android :: Right Way To Do Scrollable View Of Custom Buttons?

Jul 5, 2010

I've just started playing with Android in the last few days and have begun to put together a simple application. I am struggling to work out whether I'm doing things the "right" way or just making life difficult for myself.The app displays a series of connected nodes on the screen, similar to a mind-map. I want to be able to tap the nodes in order to edit them. When the map of nodes becomes larger than the screen, I need to be able to scroll on both X and Y axes as needed to see the whole map. Image of current implementation at I don't have scrolling working, however I assume that I can do that by making the root view a ScrollView and sticking an AbsoluteLayout inside that (though it's deprecated, I wish to place objects at specific X/Y coordinates).The nodes themselves are currently each a pair of roundrects (one for the outline and one for the fill) and a drawText and are being drawn in the main activity's onDraw(). In order to make these clickable buttons I believe I need to create a custom view for the button in order to use its onClick() events. I can then create a view object for each of my nodes and add them to the AbsoluteLayout view.Does this sound like a reasonable way to do it in Android, or is this a horrible abuse of the API?

Android :: Making Text To Speech Wrapper

Apr 6, 2010

I am attempting to create a wrapper class for Google Android's Text-To-Speech functionality. However, I'm having trouble finding a way to have the system pause until after the onInit function has finished. Attached at the bottom is something of a solution I created based on what I found here: /questions/ 1160876/android-speech-how-can-you-read-text-in-android However, this solution does not seem to work. Any thoughts on why this might not be working, or what would be a good idea in order to make sure that any Speak() calls happen after my onInit() call? public class SpeechSynth implements OnInitListener
{private TextToSpeech tts;
static final int TTS_CHECK_CODE = 0;
private int ready = 0;
private ReentrantLock waitForInitLock = new ReentrantLock();
SpeechSynth( Activity screen )
{ ready = 0;
tts = new TextToSpeech( screen, this );
public void onInit(int status)
{ if (status == TextToSpeech.SUCCESS)
{ready = 1;
} waitForInitLock.unlock();
}public int Speak( String text )
{ if( ready == 1 )
{tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null);
return 1;
} else
{ return 0;
} I have been able to make it so that I can pass a string of text through the constructor, then have it played in the onInit() function. However, I would really like to avoid having to destroy and re-create the whole text-to-speech engine every time I need to have my program say something different.

Android :: Multi Column Custom List View / With Editable Edit Text At End Of List View

Nov 3, 2010

I am on Android 2.1 and I have one multi column Custom listview Using BaseAdapter with an editable edittext at the end of the listview. If the data in the listview do not contain the data of user choice then user should be able to enter data. If the data is already there in the list user will be able to select the data using custom selector. If a selection is made in the list view and user wanted to enter data in the text field at the bottom after selection then the marker in the list view should be unselected. I tried to use onclick() method on edit text using click listener. First time when it is clicked, edit text is getting focus and onclick() method is not fired. And when it is clicked second time, onclick() method is fired and notifyDataSetChanged() method is called. I tried to call the notifyDataSetChanged() method from the Focus Listener, list view selection is gone in my first attempt and edit text is not receiving any data input from the keyboard (frozen).
