Android :: ProgressDialog During Location Tasks Either Won't Show Or Force Closes

Dec 25, 2009

ProgressDialog during location tasks either won't show or force closes - I have tried everything!

I now have it in a Handler with a full 1 second delay (one method another post suggested) but it doesn't show. I simply am stuck. Threads are usually force closing when I use those methods.

Android :: Not Show A ProgressDialog From My Activity

Jun 17, 2010

I try to show a ProgressDialog at the beginning of my application from an Activity. I debug the application and in theory the dialog is created because it prints a line from onCreateDialog... method.

For more test, I try to show a toast with:

Toast.makeText(MyActivity.this, "test", Toast.LENGTH_LONG);

And nothing is showed.

If is useful, the application is a widget.

Android :: Progressdialog Slow To Show

Oct 12, 2009

I'm starting a ProgressDialog using:, " " , " Loading. Please wait ... ", true,true);

Then running a block of code to download and parse XML.

The problem I'm having is that this is all running under a onClick button method, and that the xml is downloaded and parsed before the dialog is shown.

Android :: ProgressDialog Doesn't Show

May 9, 2010

I'm trying to create a ProgressDialog for an Android-App (just a simple one showing the user that stuff is happening, no buttons or anything) but I can't get it right. I've been through forums and tutorials as well as the Sample-Code that comes with the SDK, but to no avail.

This is what I got:


I've also tried adding; and messed around with the parameter in new ProgressDialog resulting in nothing at all (except errors that the chosen parameter won't work), meaning: the ProgressDialog won't ever show up. The app just keeps running as if I never added the dialog.

Android :: Can't Show ProgressDialog During Listview Update

Feb 18, 2010

I have a listview of items (songs on the sd card). The user has an option to load all the songs on the sd card to into a current playlist -- those songs are what is displayed in the listview. Because this can take few seconds to load if they have a lot of songs on the card, I want to display a progress dialog to just tell the user "One moment..." until the list refresh is done.

I launch a thread to do this. I've done this successfully on another app I have (which just updates a database in the background but doesn't update any display), but this one fails with this error message, "Can't create handler inside thread that has not called Looper.prepare()". I chopped down the activity and pasted it below. What am I doing wrong here? I have just a vague idea of what might be happening.

By the way, everything works when I take out the threaded stuff, it just looks like the app freezes for a couple seconds.

Android :: Trying To Show A Progressdialog In A Lengthy Task

Feb 17, 2010

When i first launch my main intent, i check if the application was updated and, if yes, i decompress some asset files. This task can take up to 15 seconds (to decompress a 6MB zip file).

So, i was trying to show a ProgressDialog to the user. However, nothing in hell makes the dialog appear.

The lengthy method is called from onCreate. I already tried to put it in onStart, but same thing. I also tried to run it in the ui thread, same thing: no dialog appears, even if "isShowing" returns true.

This is the code:.......................

Android :: ProgressDialog Doesnt Show When Called

Sep 22, 2009

I have some code in my program that processes some stuff, and takes a few seconds. So I thought logically I can place my dialog show at the beginning before processing begins, and cancel it at the end. What ACTUALLY seems to be happening is my dialog shows after the processing is done... Some demo code to show what I mean with a simple sleep:

Android :: ProgressDialog Doesn't Show Up Until It's Too Late

Aug 13, 2010

I'm writing an Activity which fetches some XML from the web via HTTP and then parses it into a DOM. It then pulls some required data from the DOM.

As you can imagine, this takes a few moments, so I put that code into it's own thread and then tried to set up a ProgressDialog to display while the user is waiting for that to complete.

The problem is that the ProgressDialog doesn't display at all. If I remove the call to dismiss() then it displays after the work is done and, obviously, just sits there...

Here is my code:..................

The constructor of the FighterVersesDownloader is where all the work in terms of HTTP and DOM is done.

Any ideas on what I'm missing? I've seen a few similar threads on this using AsyncTask, but I wanted to use good old fashioned Threads directly and the solutions suggested don't apply.

Android :: Show ProgressDialog Until Activity UI Finished Loading

Jul 1, 2010

Im trying to show a ProgressDialog while the activity is loading. my problem is that although i completed all the work in the activity. it takes a long time for the activity to load, i suspect this is because i use
multiple views with multiple listviews with custom array adapters inside a viewflipper. it takes a long time for the UI to would i go about checking that all the UI inside the activity finished loading? or is there a way to preload all the activity and the UI?

Android :: Use AsyncTask To Show ProgressDialog While Doing Background Work

Oct 8, 2010

I am developing my first Android App and I need a ProgressDialog to be showed while a background task, in this case just a http call on the server, happens.

I did a bit of studying on this and also have already checked other threads related to this subject.




Among others.

Than I got to write a bit of code:

1) In My Activity I declare a variable to be of type ProgressDialog


2) I have also written an inner class to extend AsyncTask as required, here in the doInBackGround is where I call a static method which actually do the POST http request to the server, in the server side I have blocked the server response 20s to validate the progress dialog.


3) When the button is pressed I than build the ProgressDialog anc call the AsyncTask I have created:


Well, this is it, I believe this was suppose to show a progress dialog while the AsyncTask would query the server in background, but what I get is NO progress bar until server response arrives and than for a fraction of time(less than 1 second) the progress shows and the next Activity is called.

Android :: During Refresh Operation - Show ProgressDialog Which Actually Is Never Visible

Mar 24, 2009

I know that this is common problem, but still I cannot find the answer. I have two classes: InternetConnection extends Activity ConnectionChangeReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver

From ConnectionChangeReceiver I'm calling InternetConnection method which is refreshing UI when Internet connection is changed. The problem is that during refresh operation I'd like to show ProgressDialog which actually is never visible !!

So broadcast class looks like: public class ConnectionChangeReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver. Code...

Android :: ProgressDialog Launched From OnItemClick Wait Until A Subsequent Thread's Run Method Returns To Show Itself

Jun 3, 2009

I have code in my activity's onCreate that sets an onItemClick listener. when it fires I try to show a ProgressDialog that will be up until a subsequent thread "Thread" does it's processing. Strangely to me, the progress dialog never shows until *after* the processing is complete. Almost like it's blocking. Am I doing something wrong? this is true even if the run method of doCurrentLocation doesn't do anything.

Android :: Force Closes In App After Donut OTA

Oct 8, 2009

I'm getting reports from users about force closes in my app after the donut OTA. One of them was kind enough to send me a logcat which included these two gems (right after he installed it from market):

10-02 15:56:35.708 D/PackageManager(71): New package installed in / data/app/ 10-02 15:56:35.708 W/PackageManager( 71): Unknown permission in package 10-02 15:56:35.708 W/PackageManager( 71): Unknown permission android.permission.READ_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS in package

The second one makes sense, since that name has gone away. But I can't figure out why the first one would show up, since that permission should exist on the phone. anybody got any clues? I can't reproduce this on my phone, so it's kinda hard to debug.

Android : Google Calender With Tasks Do Not Show Up On Pc Desktop

Dec 17, 2009

My Google Calender is great being a calender but I have added Tasks and they do not show up on my pc desktop and phone on the Calender itself except on their actual Web. I see I can access them seperately by using an App called gtask but wondered if there is a way I can set it up so I can see my events and tasks all together on one calander. Hope this makes sense lol.

Android :: Force Closes When The Voice Prompt?

Jul 5, 2010

Would anyone have an idea as to why an app would work on almost every phone that has 2.1 but not the Desire?

One of my apps uses voice input and the Desire is the only phone that force closes when the voice prompt comes up.

The worst part is that I don't know how to test this, I don't have one or know anyone who does.

I finally found out that HTC disabled voice in the Desire and you have to do a work around to install it.

So if you are relying on voice input make sure you use the code in the google example to catch the error:

Android :: Starting App When GPS Is Enabled Force Closes

Nov 4, 2010

My app works when GPS is disabled, but FC's when starting while GPS is enabled. On a cold start it offers the option to turn on the GPS. After doing that, pressing the back arrow button it returns to the app activity (although the GPS icon is not visible in the status bar, on a side note, how do I get it to display here?).

I exit the application by pressing the back button or using the menu option whilst GPS is still on.
Now, when I try to start the app, it FC's. The blinking GPS icon appears behind the FC message and disappears when I acknowledge the FC.

Here is the code:


And this is the logcat from eclipse:

Android :: SugarSync Force Closes After Donut 1.6 Update

Oct 15, 2009

I spent a month stocking my SugarSync folder full of files and entertainment for my big vacation. On day one of my trip the Donut 1.6 update came through and now SugarSync force closes constantly, haven't been able to use it since. I've been emailing the developers and they refuse to see a connection (despite several comments in the Market of other users blaming 1.6). Is there a chance it isn't 1.6 and how can I fix this? I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times with no improvement. It was an awesome app when it worked, I'll be damn sorry to have to delete it.

Android :: People Force Closes - Cannot Add / Link Contact

Jun 15, 2010

I'm having an issue linking my wife to her Facebook profile in the contact "people." When she calls her number comes up. After I hang up, I try to "connect with person already in contacts" and it forces "People" to close. I tried to add her manually and it deleted it before my very eyes while I was within "people." I did it using the Google phonebook and not the phone's. Is there any issue with this, and what's the difference between the Google and Phone options (benefits, etc... ?).

Android :: Local Service Not Registering - Force Closes

May 6, 2010

Essentially my problem is this, I open my Activity. It binds to a local service that "appears" to be connected. I get a force close when I press the back button:

"IllegalArgumentException: Service not registered" when unbind is called in my onPause method...
public void onPause() { super.onPause(); if (isFinishing()) {
if (mConnection != null){ Log.i(TAG,"onPause, mConnection" + mConnection.toString());
mDbS.unbindService(mConnection); }else { Log.i(TAG,"mConnection is null");
} The service is bound in onCreate // bind to our sdCard database using our Service Connection
mServiceIntent = new Intent(this,DatabaseService.class);
if(bindService(mServiceIntent, mConnection, Context.BIND_AUTO_CREATE)){
Log.e(TAG, "service bound"); }else{ Log.e(TAG, "service not bound");
} bindService is returning true.

My Service connection is as follows. onServiceConnected is called and goes to completion. onService Disconnected is never called (presumably because my service is in same process)
private ServiceConnection mConnection = new ServiceConnection() {
public final String TAG = "LoadView.ServiceConnection"; //$NON- NLS-1$
public void onServiceConnected(ComponentName className, IBinder service) {
mDbS = ((LocalBinder<DatabaseService>) service).getService(); .....
stuff not relevant.... Log.i(TAG, "finished onServiceConnected");
//$NON-NLS-1$ } public void onServiceDisconnected(ComponentName className) {
Log.e(TAG, "onServiceDisconnectedCalled"); //$NON-NLS-1$ } };

The only thing I do a little different is that I don't use an inner class in my service for the Binder object - I use a separate class. This is mostly because I have several databases and wanted code I could reuse and set up simply rather than worry about all the ins and outs and memory leak issues.

import android.os.Binder; import android.util.Log;
public class LocalBinder<S> extends Binder { private String TAG = "LocalBinder";
private S mService; @SuppressWarnings("unused") private LocalBinder() {
} public LocalBinder(S service){ mService = service;
} public S getService() { return mService;
} public void finalize(){ mService = null;
try { //TODO reinstate this after Issue 8046 is resolved
//super.finalize(); } catch (Throwable e) { Log.e(TAG,"Unable to finalize Binder");
} } }

Android :: New App Update Force Closes Immediately On Startup

Mar 31, 2009

This morning, we updated our app on AM; this was our first update since release of Android 1.1.

In testing, on the emulator and with the signed .apk installed on our handsets, everything appeared to be working fine; however, we uploaded to AM, selected the new CopyProtection option, and published. Wertago disappeared for about 30 minutes, and as soon as it reappeared, we downloaded, installed, and started. Immediately upon starting, we got a force close and were never able to get the app started at all.

We've seen some discussions about similar app behavior experienced by other developers, and there was mention of likely bugs in AM or in the Copy Protection scheme. Has this been confirmed by Google, is there any communication from them about a coming fix, or anything like that?

Here's a little detail about what we gather from the logcat output. Our app appears to fail upon attempting to open/create the database; the relevant line is:

tmpDatabase = instance.openOrCreateDatabase(SEARCH_DATABASE_NAME, Context.MODE_PRIVATE, null);

which throws the sqlite3_open_v2 error.

Android :: 1.6 SDK WebView - Application Force Closes Every Time

I've narrowed down the problem to WebView; my application force closes every time. If I take out the WebView and put in a color change button or something, the case switching works and the application loads. I'm fairly new to the plaform, but I'm (mostly) copying directly from examples here for WebViews.
