Android :: TabActivity - Refreshing ?

Aug 18, 2009

I have a TabActivity based class which has 3 tabs. All are ListActivities (but that's not important for this problem)

I'm updating the TabHost's TabSpec's to change the text on the tabs. This works fine and the ListActivities display correctly.

Iater on the execution flow I need to update the Text on the tabs from "Current Text" to "Current Text (3)", for example. I update the TabSpec.setIndicator() with the new text, and attempt to call invalidate() on the TabWidget (and all it's children). But the tab text refuses to update!

Android :: TabActivity Customization / How Is Possible

Aug 18, 2009

More of a TabWidget question I guess really...

I would've tried to send a screenshot for this query if I could, but i'll try and explain.

I have 3 Tabs, each showing a separate Activity. Underneath those tabs (and above the activity display), I want to display a header. This header would probably be a Layout of some sort with a TextView inside it and a background 9patch.

Is this possible, if so how?

Android :: AsynQueryHandler In TabActivity

Aug 12, 2010

I create a TabActivity from Several ListActivities.

The lists are created from a cursor load in a AsyncQueryHandler. I have got no problem to load the content of the list.

If I run my listActivity individually and that I do my insert, everything is find. Do know why ?

Android :: Getting The TabActivity To Work?

Mar 26, 2010

I'm having some difficulties getting the TabActivity to work.

Here's the implementation of the class:


The problem is that I call this class from my main activity (which is a MapActivity if it matters) and when I do the TabActivity doesn't show. It registers the click on the option menu and it even starts the intent but the screen doesn't just stays on the main activity and i see in the logs that the main activity gets resumed.

I call it like this:


Like I said...there are no errors (the classes called from the tabs exist of course), just no actions. I put some log commands into the onCreate function in the tabactivity (as you see) and they all get written into the log...I have no idea what I'm doing wrong here.

Android :: TabActivity With Scroll?

Dec 7, 2009

I'm working on Android v1.5. I want to use a TabActivity with 6 or 7 or more tabs. However, I do not want to clutter my screen with so many tabs together. Hence, I'd like to be able to show, say, 3 tabs on the screen, and to be able to scroll to the other tabs. How may I achieve this? I could not find any example for this by Googling.

Android :: Simple App With TabActivity

Nov 17, 2010

I have been trying to reuse the tutorial on the Android developer website about developing a TabActivity App but, unfortunately, it never worked, even when I constructed it the exact same way as it is described...
Using the debugger it seemed the problem came from the main layout.

-> setContentView(R.layout.main); //After this line the app stops.

Here is my main.xml:

Android :: LocationListener Not Refreshing

May 25, 2010

I'm trying to develop a small app, that can retrieve GPS coordinates, and store them, so I can retrace the path I took. The thing is, the GPS on Android emulator is kind of screwing around with my nerves... First of all, the Mock Position system doesn't work, so I'm manually fixing the coordinates with telnet "geo fix" command. Second of all, the location listener seems to not be refreshing. I'm lauching the app, fixing a first set of coordinates, and observing the response I expect. But when I push a second set of coordinates, the app simply doesn't react.

I tried a lot -big lot- of ideas on this, and I'm kind of running short...

By the way, I'm developping on Eclipse with ADT, and the SDK for Android 1.5 (French HTC Heros are still with Android 1.5) so that I can use my own app.

Here's my code (just the coordinate retrieval part) :

Android :: Refreshing A Spinner

Jul 3, 2010

I have a view with a spinner. The activity starts another acvitity with a popup where I add or delete values that the parent shows in the Spinner.

So, in onActivityResult() I refresh the content of the Spinner so that it reflects any additional or deleted values, by calling my fillSpinner() method.

The parameter to this method is the previously selected value:


When I open the Spinner, it contains the correct list (i.e. it was refreshed) and the correct value is selected. However, the Spinner control itself (in its closed state) does not show the selected value, but the first in the list.

When I step through the code in the debugger, the Spinner value is correct before and after I call setSelection() (and it is always called with the same correct id). However, since I cannot step out of the event, when I resume the execution after a short moment the value in the Spinner changes.

In other words, the spinner's displayed string is changed and is different from the selected item when I return from my popup activity.

Android :: Refreshing A Listview

Jul 7, 2010

I have a listview that's populated by rows that get their data from a web server. It all works totally fine except I want to have a refresh button to re-download the data. I'm getting the data through an asynctask (getting the data in doinbackground) and then setting the listadapter in onpostexecute. All I do to run the asynctask which should take care of everything is run

new PopulateListTask().execute();

However, in my optionsSelect method, creating a new asynctask just like I did in oncreate doesn't do anything. It doesn't even enter doInBackground. I've tried using listView.invalidate() and listView.invalidateViews(). Is there some special way I'm supposed to repopulate a listview?

My only guess is that since I'm using a custom adapter, my getView method is creating some kind of error, but that wouldn't explain why it's not even entering my asynctask's doInBackground method. Thoughts?

Posting some code. This is a trimmed down version.


I'm getting this in my logcat when executing my asynctask the 2nd time. Any idea what it means? I tried googling to no avail.

Android :: Refreshing An Activity

Aug 23, 2010

I created an Activity which allows navigating between pages with a couple of Buttons (Previous and Next). When the user clicks one of the buttons, the Activity (same) needs to be "refreshed". In order to do this, I set up the buttons to make a call to onCreate(this); after they set up the other stuff that the activity uses for the paging to work. And it is working so far, but I'm wondering if there is a better way. Is there?

Android :: StackOverflow Exception While Using TabActivity

Jul 21, 2009

I have a TabActivity, there are 4 tabs. In each tab I have put a single Activity. One of the activities contains a Custom List View which uses a CustomAdapter which extends the BaseAdapter.

I get this excpetion, when I try to open the tab containing this activity. It seems to be thrown at a point when probably the TabActivity is being re-drawn. Can anybody please suggest some alternatives, or solutions to avoid this problem.

Here is the stack trace.

Android :: Launching A Service From A TabActivity

Aug 4, 2009

I'd like to start a service from a tabactivity (I first tried in the activity launched for a tab but it seems taht there is a technical limitation).

So inside my TabActivity I defined a method named startService() which is quite simple:

> instanciate a new Intent > call the method startservice > Inside my "tabbed" activity (I mean inside a tab) I make a reference to the TabActivity and I call the method startService.

I tried to check the current mTabHost.getCurrentTabTag() in the onCreateOptionsMenu but that changed nothing.
So, how to do that?

Android :: Refreshing A ListActivity Within TabView

I'm running into some issues here with my app. I have 4 tabs run through a tabActivity. One tab sends an intent and run my ListActivity that populates the screen from a simpleCursorAdapter. My problem is that when I change back to this tab, after the first time its run, the list never refreshes regardless of the changes made to the database via other tabs. Is there something I can call from onTabChanged to refresh my ListActivity?

Android :: ScoreMobile - How Does Refreshing Work

Sep 20, 2010

In the Settings menu, there is an "Auto Refresh" option which you can set to "Never," but there is also a "Ticker Refresh" option which you can't turn off. What do each of these things control? Is the Auto Refresh just for when the app is running? Does it affect the widget at all?

Does the Ticker Refresh option only affect the widget? Does it have any effect if the widget is not being used on any homescreen?
