Android :: Using Spinner Selection As A Value

Nov 20, 2010

I am trying to get a Spinner to work in Android. It displays fine and I can select any one of the options in the list. But how do I transfer that to a string?I would have thought in the code below that 'selected' would hold the selected string, but I get an 'Illegal modifier for the local class YourItemSelectedListener; only abstract or final is permitted' error on the 'YourItemSelectedListener'.What am I doing wrong?

Android :: Spinner - Don't Display Selection / Set Selection Text Color As Transparent?

Aug 4, 2009

I'm trying to use Spinner as a button with selection pop-up. Basically I want an icon and when user clicks it - the popup list is displayed and user can make a selection. The Spinner happily accepts icon image as drawable background. Unfortunately when I select a value the text overlays the background. Is it possible to set selection text color as a transparent? Or maybe there's a better way?

Android :: Spinner Selection Box On Activity And Dialog

Jun 22, 2010

I have a spinner selection box on my activity, but now I want to remove the spinner from the main view and make the selection available by an option from the menu button. How do I get the dialog the spinner shows if I click it without having the spinner? Currently I fill the spinner using a SimpleCursorAdapter like this:

Cursor c = db.fetchAllSets();
SimpleCursorAdapter adapter = new SimpleCursorAdapter(this android.R.layout.simple_spinner_item, c, new String[] { DatabaseAdapter.SET_KEY_NAME }, new int[] { android.R.id.text1 });
adapter.setDropDownViewResource(android.R.layout.simple_spinner_dropdown_it­em);
mSetsSpinner.setAdapter(adapter);

So now I'm planning to remove the spinner from my activity, add a new button to the menu and in the onOptionsItemSelected(...) show a dialog with the list of available selection - just the way it is right now after clicking the spinner object.

Android :: Empty Spinner Before First Selection / Setup It?

Aug 21, 2010

I have a Spinner whose items comes from an ArrayAdaper, and I want the Spinner to initially show that no item has been selected. When the user clicks on the Spinner it's DropDownView should display just those items available for selection.

I don't want to add an empty/blank item at the head of my list of items because that means that it shows as an avalaible selection in the DropDownView and looks pretty lame. And if a selection is made I want it to be a valid one.

I tried spinner#setSelection(-1); but that doesn't work. The first item remains selected.

I tried setting no Adapter initially (which provides the desired initial view) and had hoped to configure the appropriate adapter in the OnClickListener, but spinner#setOnClickListener throw a RuntimeException saying "You probably want to use #setOnItemClickListener instead". And trying to use #setOnItemClickListener throws a RuntimeException saying it is not valid for a Spinner.

Surely this is a common use case. How can I set the Spinner to initially show as empty?

As the title says, i have a Spinner with just a couple of options and a button. I didnt declared any Listener for the spinner, instead of that, what i want is use the button and perform different actions depending on the spinner selected option.

So, i declared a handler in the button option "android:onClick", but once there, i dont know how to access the option selected in the Spinner.

Android :: Spinner Control - Differentiating Between User Selection And Initialization

Jun 12, 2009

I've implemented a spinner with an OnItemSelectedListener event handler. When I initialize the spinner and when a user makes a selection the even handler gets called. What I need is to determine when a user makes a selection. Is there a way to determine in the OnItemSelectedListener whether the event was triggered because of data initialization, or because of a user selection? Am I going down the wrong path trying to do this with the OnItemSelectedListener? Is there a better way to to capture a user selection event on a spinner control?

Android :: Spinner Widgets Look Different On Different Devices - Can Define Own Spinner That Looks Same On All Handsets

May 20, 2010

I use this code to generate a spinner in my app:
code:.........

On my device (Motorola Milestone) and in the emulator this looks like the standard gray spinner widget.
On of my colleagues uses a Motorola Backflip and on his device the Spinner is black. Now its very hard to read the font in the spinner.

What do I have to do to use my own view for the spinner? I don't mind to have the gray spinner on all devices, but it should always look the same on all devices.

Android :: Call Spinner's Value - Use Other Values Based On A Spinner's Value

Jan 25, 2010

I have a spinner 'aperture' set up with a list of numbers, and a spinner 'mode' with two options. When a button is pushed I need a calculation to run using various inputs, including the current selection from 'aperture' and a value derived from 'mode'. How do I call the value of a spinner so I can use it in a calculation?

Also, how do I use the spinner 'mode's selection to set this other value before implimenting it in the calculation? To be more specific, if the spinner is set to Small then the value I use in the calculation is 0.015, whereas if Large is selected I need to use 0.028

My other inputs are EditText views, so right now I am set up like this:

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

That is not the actual equation, it is just a test to make sure everything connects properly. How would I call the value of spinner 'aperture' and the Small/Large spinner 'mode'

Android :: Popup List Like Spinner Without Spinner

Jan 25, 2010

I have a spinner widget in my activity which lets users pick a list name.

Normally, the function of the spinner is to switch between lists but for a couple of instances, I swap out the selection change listener to perform a different function with the same list of options. Once the selection has been made, the old listener is restored and life goes on.

This is a bad and buggy arrangement. Instead, I would like to have a function that just takes a selection listener and some other parameters and shows a popup list that's populated by the same cursor (or and identical cursor) as the spinner, without using the spinner itself.

Is there any way I can do this?

Android :: Gallery With Folder Selection?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a Droid just running stock 2.0.1. What I am looking for is a photo/picture gallery app that simply let's you select the folders that you want to display in the app. I was fine with the stock gallery for awhile, but then I started getting a variety of apps that store pictures in various folders (the worst one being Touchdown for Exchange which puts almost every attachment in a new folder). The stock gallery now takes forever to load up, as it is loading a TON of folders with images in them. Really it makes it almost useless at this point. This was the main reason I switched to MixZing for audio, as it let me narrow my library down to the few folders that actually mattered.

Android :: Enable Selection In Webkit

Jun 13, 2010

I'am looking for a way to have a webview content selectable in the very same way as the stock browser does.
I should note that Dolphin HD shows exactly the same text select functionality as the default browser (same icons, animation, etc), so it really should be possible. But I can't figure out how.Until now, all i found was this function, which kind of work, but doesn't allow the user to expand/shrink the selection.I just discovered that long touch copy/paste is part of HTC Sense, not Stock android. Still, it'd be useful to find out how to enable that on a webview, even just for HTC users. Anybody knows ?

Android :: ListView Checkbox Selection

Nov 10, 2010

I kind of have a 2 part question here.

1) How can I populate my ListView so that strings are what is displayed, but when items are selected, a non-visible id value (contact id from phone contacts) is the value that is actually used?

2) I have a ListView that's using multipleChoice mode for item selections. It's popluated with names from my contacts list. When I select an item in the ListView, I want that selected item to trigger a call to my SqLite routine to store the value into a database record. How do I make this event fire when an item is checked in the listview?I had hoped to be able to use something like the onClick event for each checked item, but have made not one bit of progress.

Android :: Default Selection Not Working

Oct 12, 2010

I hope, my issue would be clear for you from my question title. I have three linear layouts in each row of the list view. One linear layout contains an Imageview and the other two linear layout contains text views. These three linear layouts comprise my list view row. But, to my surprise, the listview default selection(orange colored) does not work when I move the trackball of mouse or when I select it from the phone.

Android :: Multiple Selection In Email App

Oct 14, 2010

How do you do a multiple selection in the default mail app?

My server's spam filter works pretty well, directing most of the spam to my Trash folder, and very little "real" mail. So when I look in my Trash folder I might have 30 messages, and 28 of them are spam. How do I select all 28 of them for deletion in one fell swoop, so I don't have to tediously delete each one one-at-a-time?

Android :: Calendar Home Selection?

Feb 23, 2010

On my blackberry i was able to choose whether i wanted Month, Week, Day, or Agenda as my initial screen the calendar opens up to.

Am i able to do this on my Nexus One? I use the Agenda 99% of the time to see what class i have next along with whats ahead in my day. However whenever i open the app it always on the Month section and i can not figure out how to change that. I realize once I've selected agenda it will stay there for the next couple times if i exit it using the home key rather than the back key, however that only lasts for a little while.

How or have another calendar app recommendation. Im using Gcal.
