Android :: Placing Buttons - Place Four Buttons Near Top - Left - Bottom - Right Edge Of The Screen

Jul 29, 2009

I am not able to find out the perfect layout(viewgroup) to place four buttons as shown in the attached image. Basically, i want to place four buttons near the top/left/bottom/right edge of the screen. AbsoluteLayout helped, but it is deprecated (It is also better to avoid AbsoluteLayout as it is not very flexible for orientation changes)

Android :: A SurfaceView And 2 Buttons On A Layout Cannot Be Displayed?

Jun 6, 2009

I have a simple problem which makes me feel like a stupid. I really need help on this.

I have a SurfaceView which I created with Java code not XML. I created a MediaPlayer which shows its content on that SurfaceView.

When I use, setContentView(mPreview); // where mPreview is a SurfaceView

The video is played on the screen.

I need to add two buttons on the screen. So I tried something like this:


This did not change anything. Still the video is displayed on full screen and no buttons appear. I am a java programmer both SE and ME. Things are done in this way on Java.

Does Android have a different approach?

Android :: How To Place Widgets Above And Below A Listview?

Mar 16, 2010

I have a list view and want to put stuff both above(on the y axis) and below(y axis) it including images, text views, and a row of buttons. Below is a simplified version of what I am creating. Unfortunately the list covers(i.e. above on the z axis) the header so the header text is not visible instead of being underneath (on the y axis)

Android :: Video Games - Graphics/SurfaceView Tutorial ?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm trying to learn how to make video games on Android, and therefore I'm needing to get some decent tutorials going on how to make graphics on Anroid using the SurfaceView object. However every single graphics tutorial I've tried (mainly SurfaceView stuff) has failed. Please note that I don't want to use XML, as it is out of my element, and Google just wants to sell that technique on the advertisement of neatness, which I can do programmatically.

One major problem I've run into is that there are many tutorials, both from Google and from third parties, with code that uses the import android.opengl.GLSurfaceView command, or either imports a subset GLSurfaceView, and that never works on my IDE. Every time I try to import either one of those, Eclipse wants to say that it basically doesn't recognize that package. The strange thing is that I CAN import android.opengl.*, although that still causes some of the code in those packages to be referring to unrecognized types and/or methods.

After trying to fool around with the first problem for a while, I noticed that the Lunar Lander example didn't try to import either one of those two problem libraries. So I pulled the code and referenced resources for that into one of my infant projects, leaving everything else in that project unused. Of course I did change which package the Lunar Lander code was in and changed the class name in or whatever, but that should not matter. I was able to get the thing to build in Eclipse. However when I went to run it, it would do nothing but crash. Without showing any Lunar Lander graphics or anything, the emulator would just give me this error message basically saying that my App has stopped working unexpectedly and makes me close the App.

1) What's the deal with the issues with the opengl.GLSurfaceView package?
2) What's the deal with the Lunar Lander example?
3) Where's a good, firm tutorial on how to make video games for Android

Android :: SurfaceView Vs Custom View / SurfaceView Is Slower

Aug 20, 2010

One using a Surfaceview, and the other using a custom view. According to the android SDK development guide, using a surface view is better because you can spawn a separate thread to handle graphics. Th SDK development guide claims that using a custom view with invalidate calls is only good for slower animations, less intense graphics.However, in my simple app, I can clearly see that using a custom view with calls to invalidate seems to render faster.What do you guys know/think about this?My touchEvent code is exactly the same, and my drawing code is exactly the same. The only difference is that one is all in the UI thread, and the other is using a tread to handle the drawing.

Android :: How To Tie Pending Intents To Specific Buttons On Widgets?

Sep 18, 2010

I have a Widget I am working on, that allows the user to have more then one instance of the widget on his screen. Each Widget ID maintains its own configuration file. However, for some odd reason my code that is responsible for setting up the buttons individually for each widget id is not working, only the first widget id is linked to each individual widget. Below is the code that is responsible.

private void TieClicks(Context context){
RemoteViews rViews;
PendingIntent editPendingIntent= null;
// Intent updateintent = new Intent(context,SyncNoteWidget.class);
// updateintent.setAction(SyncNote_Action_Widget_Update);
// PendingIntent pendingupdateintent = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(context, 0, updateintent, 0);
// rViews.setOnClickPendingIntent( , pendingupdateintent);
// AppWidgetManager appWidgetManager = AppWidgetManager.getInstance(context);
int[] ids = appWidgetManager.getAppWidgetIds(new ComponentName(context, SyncNoteWidget.class));
for (int i =0;i< ids.length;i=i+1){
int wId = ids[i];
rViews = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(),R.layout.widget);
editPendingIntent = makeControlPendingIntentActivity(context, wId);
Log.v("syncnote", "tieing " + String.valueOf(wId));
rViews.setOnClickPendingIntent(, editPendingIntent);
appWidgetManager.updateAppWidget(wId, rViews);
editPendingIntent= null;
} }
private PendingIntent makeControlPendingIntentActivity(Context context,int appWidgetId) {
Intent active = new Intent(context, EditNote.class);
active.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK );
active.putExtra(AppWidgetManager.EXTRA_APPWIDGET_ID, appWidgetId);
return(PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, active, 0 ));

Android :: Header - Views And Buttons - How To Attach Listeners To Buttons In A Header That Does Not Have Its Own Activity

Jan 6, 2010

I have touched on this question here, where Christopher gave an answer to this, but I dont really get it so I thought its time to make it a real question, not just a "follow up" =)

As it stands, the application Im writing has 4 different screens:
1. Screen 1 - list of nodes (main screen)
2. Screen 2 - options menu, tableLayout with buttons
3. Screen 3 - navigation
4. Screen 4 - text details on version etc

These screens can be navigated to/from using a "header" View that is placed on top. the header then has 4 different buttons:

| menu with buttons |
| |
| |
| |
| C O N T E N T |
| |
| |
| |

The header is just an XML-file (header.xml) with a few buttons. That header.xml is the included in the Layouts using the include-markup. For example, the main.xml has the line:

<include layout="@layout/header"></include>

The header show up alright, but the question is - what is the correct approach to attach OnClickListeners for the buttons in the header?

Christopher pointed out that you could create an Activity class and do the hooks there, like this:


First, I cant make it work since the method setupHeaderButtons isnt accessible from FirstActivity.
Secondly, is this the right way to go at it?
