Android :: How To Use Androids To Create Custom View Class?

Aug 15, 2010

I am using a custom class based off RelativeLayout but it obviously doesn't render in the Eclipse layout editor. I have found this article regarding LayoutInflater.Factory and it sounds like what I need to be doing but I can find no guides to using LayoutInflater.Factory.
http://www.macadamian.com/blog/post/android_-_custom_classes_from_xml_layout/

Could anyone help with exactly what and where I do this? I understand what is said in the article, but need specifics on where to declare, hook, whatever the Factory. In case it is helpful, here is the complete console output from when I try to view main.xml in Layout view..

Android :: Best Way To Create A Custom View For Every List Item?

Nov 4, 2010

As I am reviewing and prototyping my android project, I noticed that there is a view that has a list of items that are very customized. I have figured out most of my tools that I plan to use but I need some advice.

I have a list of items which can contain photos, some text to the right, an image to the bottom and more text below that. Very confusing I know. Each of these might be present for an item. The only thing that will always be there is the title.

So my question - what is the best way to create each custom list item view? I am thinking I have to use this getView to create each view. But when creating each view, is it best to 1) create a view dynamically and adding an image, for example, if it exists, or 2) create an xml file with all possible elements and hide them depending on the item?

Android :: Map View Tutorial App On Emulator

Dec 23, 2009

I'm trying to run the Android Hello Map View tutorial app on the Android emulator. The Google Map view displays, but the tiles are blank.

Judging by the errors below (taken from LogCat) the app is unable to connect to the internet. The web browser on the emulator connects without problems. I've also double-checked the API key.I'm using the 1.5 Google APIs SDK, from Eclipse Galileo, on Windows XP SP3, behind a corporate firewall. I've tried two methods to add proxy information:Add -http-proxy http://www.foo.co.uk:80 to Additional Emulator Command Line Options in the Target Page in Debug Configurations.

Remove settings in 1. and add proxy information at Home > Menu > Settings > Wireless Controls > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names.

Neither seems to help. Any other ideas? Should I be adding proxy information within the app? If so, how? Sam Dutton, AMENDMENT: internet permission has been added to the manifest application element:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

Media :: Custom Ringtone Tutorial

Oct 23, 2008

So you want some cool ringtones but the music you listen to isn't supported by Tmobile website... or the I'm too cheap to pay 1$ for a ringtone because I blew 200$ on my phone.

Step 1. Get Audacity. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Step 2. Find a file named Lame_enc.dll This is the mp3 encoder needed for audacity to export files as mp3 files.

Step 3. Find something worth making a ringtone out of. Audacity has an excellent ability to record anything you can hear through your speakers. I instead just loaded the program. then open the mp3 file I wanted to use.

In this case I choose a file I recorded while I listened to it for the sole purpose of turning it into a ringtone. takes a sec to import it. Then Play the song to ensure it is what you want. Also note the time marks for when you want the ringtone to start and when you want it to end.

Android :: WebView Tutorial Opens Requested Address In Browser And Not In Web View

May 23, 2010

I am using Android emulator with AVD of Android 2.1 and I have the following problem: Trying to load a URL in a WebView using webView.loadUrl causes it to open in the browser instead.Note: I am talking about the initial opening, not the issue in which links from the WebView open in a browser, though, perhaps it is somehow connected.I've tried several things:I've removed <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" /> from the manifest. That actually made it work correctly, i.e, load the html into the webview. However, as one would expect, the only thing it loaded is "unable to connect the internet" error page.I've debugged the project to make sure and indeed at loadUrl function, it opens Android browser. The CatLog at this point is as such:05-23 22:54:06.858: INFO/Activity Manager(51): Starting activity: Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW cat=[android. intent. category.BROWSABLE]dat=http://m.walla.co.il/ErrorPage.aspx?ReturnUrl=/Default.aspx
cmp=com.android.browser/.BrowserActivity i've tried downloading a real sample project ("Hello Android" book source files, project - BrowserView). However, it didn't work just the same. I've created a new project and followed the directions at Google's official tutorial of using WebView and got the same result.I haven't find anyone else complaining about it. Why does it happen?

Android :: Custom View Extending View-Class / Still Based On XML-Layout

Aug 17, 2010

I want to build my own custom view which should look like the Crysis-GUI.At first I designed a XML-based Layout and made it visible via the setContentView(int resid)-Method. Worked pretty well.But now I wan't to go a step further and draw in my Layout. So I created a new Class, let it extend View and overrode the onDraw()-Method. So far so good.But how can I still use my XML-Layout? I can't do setContentView anymore, so how could the same effect be achieved?

Android :: Multi Column Custom List View / With Editable Edit Text At End Of List View

Nov 3, 2010

I am on Android 2.1 and I have one multi column Custom listview Using BaseAdapter with an editable edittext at the end of the listview. If the data in the listview do not contain the data of user choice then user should be able to enter data. If the data is already there in the list user will be able to select the data using custom selector. If a selection is made in the list view and user wanted to enter data in the text field at the bottom after selection then the marker in the list view should be unselected. I tried to use onclick() method on edit text using click listener. First time when it is clicked, edit text is getting focus and onclick() method is not fired. And when it is clicked second time, onclick() method is fired and notifyDataSetChanged() method is called. I tried to call the notifyDataSetChanged() method from the Focus Listener, list view selection is gone in my first attempt and edit text is not receiving any data input from the keyboard (frozen).

Android :: How Create View Like The Default Android EditContact View

Jul 29, 2010

Specifically, I'm curious about how they did the phone number entry part, where they can add additional phone numbers fields when the user clicks the little add button. I initially thought that was done with a ListView, and I got a ListView to work, but the ListView scrolls independently of the rest of the screen, which looks bad.

So I was wondering what the best approach for something like that is? Am I on the right track with the ListView and just missing something allowing me keep it from behaving like it's own scrollable container? Perhaps a custom AdapterView or maybe just with a TableLayout dynamically adding rows? I'm just not sure what would work the best.

Android :: Style Own Styleable With A Style - Custom View Class With Custom Attribute

Jul 8, 2009

I'm creating my own View class, and defining custom xml attributes with a attrs.xml. As long as I provide each attribute manually, there is no problem, but

code:...................

The android:text is properly set in my instance, but the borderDrawable is not. I guess this has something to do with namespaces, because inside the styles.xml, the name="mypack:borderDrawable" is not handled by the XML parser's namespace facility, because its inside an attribute value. So "mypack" is in no way connected to "http://some.weird.url.com/seems/not/to/ matter" and adding it via xmlns:mypack... to the stylefile would not help, I guess. In the same file, "android:text" is somehow recognized, even though "android" is AFAIK only a ns-defintion for [url], which is also not declared in that file.

So what is the proper way to set a custom attribute in a style?

Android :: Create Custom Component Using Inflate

Mar 29, 2010

I'm trying to create a component using an xml layout file. I defined a layout with some custom attributes. This layout is inflated when user add it inside another layout. My problem is I don't know the parent, so I pass null for the parent viewgroup when I call inflate method. I think that's the reason why I see anything in my view. Do you know how can I do (I don't want to redefine onDraw method because I use existing component). Below my xml layout and my custom class.

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content">
<ImageView android:id="@+id/img_btn_option" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
<TextView android:id="@+id/txt_btn_option" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_toRightOf="@id/img_btn_option"
android:textColor="@color/font_white" android:textStyle="bold"/>
</RelativeLayout> public class ButtonOptionsView extends View {
public ButtonOptionsView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
super(context, attrs);
LayoutInflater li =(LayoutInflater)context.getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
RelativeLayout vg =(RelativeLayout)li.inflate(R.layout.button_option, null);
TypedArray ta = getContext().obtainStyledAttributes(attrs,R.styleable.ButtonOption);
((ImageView)vg.findViewById(R.id.img_btn_option)).setImageResource(ta.getResourceId(R.styleable.ButtonOption_image,0));
((TextView)vg.findViewById(R.id.txt_btn_option)).setText(ta.getResourceId(R.styleable.ButtonOption_text,0));}

Android :: How To Create And Manage Custom Themes?

Mar 19, 2010

I know how to create and apply styles and themes thanks to http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/themes.html. However, this method only works for our own activity or application. I'd like to create themes that could dress the whole system (i.e. all activities). Of course, I'd like to select one of these theme by programing. If I could customize the status bar as well, it would be perfect. I didn't find out documentation about that.
