Android :: Simple Example Of Changing Screen Brightness For An Activity?

May 30, 2010

There are apparently at least three different techniques for changing screen brightness in the Android OS. Two of them no longer work post-cupcake and the third accepted technique evidently has a bug. I would like to increase screen brightness at the start of a one-view activity then turn the brightness back to the user setting at the end of the activity. No buttons, no second view or second activity. Just a maxed brightness at start and a return to original brightness setting at the end of the activity. The examples of the current technique using WindowManager.LayoutParams that I have located range from 2 lines of code

WindowManager.LayoutParams lp = getWindow().getAttributes();
lp.screenBrightness = 100 / 100.0f;
getWindow().setAttributes(lp);

To several pages of source code and numerous activities. Is there a simple example of maxing the screen brightness at start that someone can provide a link to?

I want to change the screen brightness programmatically in android.
WindowManager.LayoutParams lp = getWindow().getAttributes();

But this sample code works on cutcake, not on latest versions. I am using latest version of SDK. How can I do it?

Android :: Changing Screen Brightness In Android Emulator

Oct 5, 2010

Can screen brightness changes be tested in the Android emulator? I've tried various examples that all use the following code snippet:
WindowManager.LayoutParams lp = window.getAttributes();
lp.screenBrightness = (*some float percentage*);
window.setAttributes(lp);

But I don't see any change in brightness in the emulator. I've tested it in cupcake and 2.2.

Android :: Simple Activity Switch Not Working - No Errors

Feb 19, 2010

I have a basic calculator app I'm making. Two activities, the main one and ResultView.

I've made it where I click a button on activity A to go to activity B. The log says activity B is started and "displayed" successfully, the title for the new activity loads, but the body does NOT show. I added a simple Text view with static text.. see the result.xml at the bottom. I also tried inserting information programmatically, but that didn't do.

When I debug the program, I tried putting breakpoints as the activity is called with startActivity() as well as on the first line of the onCreate method within the ResultView class (my activity "B") but the program never hits the second breakpoint. In fact, it looks as if Looper.class is called in the end.

This bit of code is placed in the button handler on acitivity A:

CODE:........

The activity is in the manifest, within the "application" tag:

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

If more info is needed, let me know...in short, "HELLO WORLD" does not display at all.

Android : Content Provider - Activity.startManagingCursor And Simple Dao

Jun 1, 2010

I am writing simple app that will read callLog content provider transform data and write it to my own table. my app will not show data directly from calllog content provider.

1. now one problem that I have is I cannot limit how much rows query will return (by calling activity.managedQuery) but I assume that Cursor delays access to the db and I can use moveToNext as many times as desired to get few rows from table and the call will be efficient. is that good thinking?? OR am I wrong here? I really dont want to query all rows from table. is there any other way to access calllog??

2. I dont want to implement my own content provider for my app. I will use rawQuery many times and group data so contentprovider's callbacks are not enough for me. more I want my dao to be private to my application so I think there is no need to bother with conentprovider. and If I got this right I also dont need to bother with activity.startManagingCursor as long I query data inside same method call (because I need to deactivate all intermediate Cursor objects anyway)

Android :: Simple Program - Class Extends Activity At Startup

Oct 1, 2010

I have a simple activity program in android. Basically the class just extends Activity.
But when I start it I get a ClassCastException in the constructor of my class. I don't even have a constructor defined, so it must be in the constructor of the superclass which is Activity. Unfortunately the debugger doesn't give any detailed information on what class it is trying to cast. Here is the stacktrace:

Thread [<1> main] (Suspended (exception RuntimeException))
ActivityThread$PackageInfo.makeApplication(boolean, Instrumentation) line: 649
ActivityThread.handleBindApplication(ActivityThread$AppBindData) line: 4232
ActivityThread.access$3000(ActivityThread, ActivityThread$AppBindData) line: 125
ActivityThread$H.handleMessage(Message) line: 2071
ActivityThread$H(Handler).dispatchMessage(Message) line: 99
Looper.loop() line: 123
ActivityThread.main(String[]) line: 4627
Method.invokeNative(Object, Object[], Class, Class[], Class, int, boolean) line: not available [native method]
Method.invoke(Object, Object...) line: 521
ZygoteInit$MethodAndArgsCaller.run() line: 868
ZygoteInit.main(String[]) line: 626
NativeStart.main(String[]) line: not available [native method]

And when I look into this runtimeexception I get:

detailMessage "Unable to instantiate application com.test.MyApp: java.lang.ClassCastException: com.test.MyApp" (id=830067694464)
The only code is:
package com.test;
import android.app.Activity;
public class MyApp extends Activity {
}

Android :: Simple Listview - Consists Of Strings - When Click Opens A New Activity

Jun 21, 2010

I have a very simple listview going on. The list just consists of strings, when you click the string it opens a new activity blah blah. Here's the problem, I enabled settextfilter and while it did filter the list, when you click the result, it always performs the action of the string located at zero, and not the one it is supposed to.

Android :: Changing Content Of Activity Run Time

Jul 24, 2010

I created an activity by using a layout written in a XML file. I would like, in response to some events, to change the content of this activity. I would like to show a VideoView over the content. In response to some other event, I may want to go back to the first content. Would it be possible to switch the content of the activity this way without running another activity (I have another technical difficult in doing that)? I tried using setContentView( videoView), and then switching back with setContentView(T.layout.main), but it seems that, when going back to the main layout, all my buttons and text boxes are created again as they were new. Would it be possible to go back to the last state of all the controls?

Motorola Droid :: How To Set Screen Brightness?

May 27, 2010

I am very anal about the brightness setting. I keep the setting very low to save battery. While indoors this is almost never a problem but when I go outside I can't see the screen. This makes it very hard to change the brightness. How do other people solve this or am I the only one that has this problem? Does anyone know of a way to map a button (like home button) and change the operation of the long press?

Android :: Changing Launch Activity Seems To Not Work On Update

Apr 26, 2010

For a new update I am changing the start-up work flow for the application. Part of this is setting the "android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" from one activity to another in my manifest. When I run an update from what is on the market to what I download from my website the application starts in the Activity where it used to start before the update. When I un install the application and install it from the same package I got from my website it starts in the Activity where I have now specified it to start. Shorter version: Update fails to update launching activity, un install- reinstall does update the launching activity. Is this a known issue? Do I really need to add logic to correct for people who update the app instead of installing fresh? Asking people to un install for an update is not a viable option. Is there something I can do to clean out whatever is getting saved that is causing the app to launch with the incorrect Activity?
