Android :: MapView Doesn't Take Up Full Screen

Aug 10, 2010

I hate to bother you all again, as this is probably me, a newbie, making some big blunder, but I'm baffled as to why my mapview only takes up a fraction of the screen. I've been following tutorials.

My layout:


The specified screen resolution is, as in the droid, 854x480. It shows up in the emulator in horizontal mode (wide, not very tall). The map starts about a third of the way from the left and ends about a third of the way from the right. It starts at the top and ends about a third of the way from the bottom of the screen. I have no clue why that would happen, as I specified "fill_parent".

Android :: Google MapView Doesn't Work After Signed App

Jun 2, 2010

I am facing to android application signing problem. My application contains Google MapView. When I compile the app and run on the emulator, MapView works fine. But signed the app, MapView doesn't work. I've get Google Map API. This works on the simulator. I could sign the app once 2 months ago. Then I've upgraded the app. Now I need to sign the app again. Actually I don't know why signed app's mapView doesn't work. How to fix it?

I used following steps when sign the app: Run Eclipse. Select the project. Right Click -> Android Tools -> Export Signed Application Package -> Then Filled forms. (In forms, Validity years: 200, and all passwords are same.)

MapView Pan Doesn't Work Right?

Sep 14, 2012

i used this tutorial to make a map activity: https:[url].....

The map and my overlays show up fine. But when i try to pan to somewhere on the map, my touch controls start acting funny. The map pans to the ocean or another country altogether. Or it zooms out all the way and sometimes it opens other apps when i try to pan.

Android :: Mapview Doesn't Show Traffic Until User Interacts With Map

Jun 27, 2010

I have a MapActivity. If it's set to an appropriate location and zoom level to see traffic none is shown after it's first created until you interact with the map (click on it, drag, etc) at which point traffic shows up. Naturally I want traffic to show up without any user interaction after it loads but I've been unable to figure out how to trigger it. Any ideas?

Android :: MapView Doesn't Display Tiles - Debugging Strategies / What's Actual Problem?

Jul 10, 2010

There are a number of posts (both here & elsewhere) about why a MapView might not be displaying tile info (personally, I've liked, but there are other good ones, too).

My question is slightly different: I'm not getting tile info to show up (on my handset or in the emulator), and I'm looking for advice on what to try in order to debug this problem. As far as I can tell I've correctly located my debug.keystore, and used the Java JDK keytool to get the signature from it, which I then plugged into the Google web page, and then plugged THAT key back into my XML file. The app runs ok, it just doesn't display any tiles.

I was hoping that if I did something wrong here I'd see an error message in, say, logcat (or an exception that Eclipse might catch) that would confirm that this is the source of the error.

So here's my question - what would y'all recommend someone try in order to figure out what the actual problem is?

Android :: MapView Showing As Black Screen After Upgrade To 1.5

Has anyone seen their MapView which was working in 1.1 displaying a plain black screen (no errors) after compling with the 1.5 SDK? I made sure to copy the debug.keystore from the 1.1 location to the new 1.5 location so its compiling and loading on the phone correctly (I did a reinstall not uninstall/install) and shouldn't need a new mapsAPI key.

No errors are showing up in DDMS other than: Failed to find provider info for

HTC Incredible :: Click On Widget Doesn't Bring Full Weather Program

Jun 8, 2010

I've downloaded Beautiful Widget and have the temp and clock on the homescreen. My question is, when you click on the widget, it doesn't bring you to a full weather program like weatherchannel or weatherbug? Meaning like, in the "stock" weather widgets, if you click on them while open, it brings u into a weather program where you then have the option to look at a closer look or detailed forecast.

Android :: Full Screen App ?

Sep 29, 2010

Is it a good practice to develop an app that uses the full screen?

It is not a game, full screen would be just nice to have more space on the screen for GUI elements.
But I have the dim feeling, that a full screen app could break some recommandations for good app design. The developer guide gives no answer to this. Who knows more? I'm learning how to develop on android and it is very important for me to learn it right.

Android :: Full Screen Activity

Aug 14, 2010

I'm writing an Activity that should take up the entire screen.What happens is that the window title and notification bar are both visible for just a moment when the activity starts up. Then they slide off, leaving my activity with a messed up layout: a blank space the size of the notification bar gets left at the top of the screen, and a little bit of my layout gets cut off at the bottom of the screen.It appears that it's laid out the activity the size of the full screen, but then pushed it down a bit so part of it gets cut off.If I remove either one of the two lines above, everything works correctly and nothing gets cut off. But then I have a title bar or notification bar at the top of the screen, which I don't want.

Android :: Not Taking Up Full Screen Size

Jul 27, 2010

Tried to search for this one but the search terms I used didn't seem to find worthwhile results. I'm creating an application to run on a device with a 800x480 resolution (the archos 5) so I've created an AVD in the emulator with that resolution. However, when I run my program in the emulator it simply shows the program with the default android size, centered in the 800x480 window. It is not stretched to cover the whole screen. How can I fix this? I'm using Android 2.1.

Android :: Way To Disable Full Screen Behavior Via InputMethodManager

Nov 19, 2009

I'm looking to prevent the default behavior of going full screen when controls like EditText receive focus in an application. The InputMethodManager class does indeed have a setFullscreen() method available, but it seems to have been hidden on purpose in the SDK. Is there any other way to disable this behavior while still using the software keyboard?

Android :: Inserting Status-bar Within Ones Own Full-screen View

Aug 10, 2009

I read somewhere in the Android documentation that (paraphrasing here): 'if you do make your own View take up the whole screen, it is then possible/even-advisable, to insert and manage the 'status-bar' within your View'. How do you do that? - i.e. insert the status-bar within ones own 'full- screen' View?

Android :: Making Window Full-screen On Galaxy Tab

Nov 13, 2010

I have a simple app that is mostly native-code OpenGL with about a page of Java to interface to it. On my new Galaxy Tab, it creates a window that is about 480x800 pixels, while on other devices (including an AC100 with a larger screen) it fills the whole screen.

Searching the web, it seems that this affects many existing apps when they are run on this device, and there is plenty of end-user advice about how to make apps fill the screen. But I've failed to find any advice about how I should do it from within the app.

My current Java code is not much more than this:

Android :: Apps Deployed From Eclipse Don't Take Up Full Screen

Aug 10, 2010

At first, I thought it was just a problem with my code, but I've since discovered that this problem applies even to the default, unmodified app templates I can choose from when creating a project in Eclipse. Every app only takes up a fraction of the screen. Here's my layout for an example, but again, it affects all of them:


The specified screen resolution is, as in the droid, 854x480. It shows up in the emulator in horizontal or vertical mode. The map starts about a third of the way from the left and ends about a third of the way from the right. It starts at the top and ends about a third of the way from the bottom of the screen. I have no clue why that would happen, as I specified "fill_parent".

I've tried a variety of things. I switched to a linearlayout, as one page I saw recommended. I tried spelling out absolute layout widths. I tried all sorts of stuff. The map stubbornly remains surrounded by black on all sides. One thing I noticed was that when I specified widths and heights that were really large, way bigger than the screen, the map showed up as pure white instead of as a map. But it still had the black all around the map as described above. The title bar likewise is truncated by the black bars on either side and only takes up 1/3 of the width, whether in landscape or portrait mode.

The apps that come by default on the emulator take up the fullscreen, but everything I install from Eclipse does not.
