Android :: Scrolling EditText On ScrollView Programmatically

Jul 19, 2010

I am trying to make a non-editable EditText that is placed in a ScrollView and scrolling is controlled programmatically (when a left/right fling is detected).

Here's my simple layout:


And here is my simple program:


So, to explain it simply, I have two custom simplegesture classes that I attached to the EditText and the ScrollView. For the EditText, I'm trying to detect a left/right fling and when detected, I'm scrolling the it up 1 page up/down. The custom simplegesture attached to the ScrollView is to disable finger scrolling.

Here's a screen shot after a right fling was done:

I kinda works right now but I have two questions:

How do I control the scroll so that lines won't get "cut-off" (please refer to the picture above where the first line on the screen is a bit "cuf-off"). Why when I scroll the page up/down programmatically, the EditText is auto select-all (please refer to the picture above where the whole screen turns orange after scrolling)? Why when I changed MyGestureDetector to detect fling on the Y-axis (vertical fling) and programmatically scroll the EditText, it doesnt' work? It wouldn't work even if I made the change in ScrollGestureDetector too. Does it have something to do with the behaviour of the ScrollView?

Android :: To Make EditText Look Like TextView But Still Behave Like EditText

May 17, 2009

I want an EditText to look like TextView but still behave like EditText. I've tried applying TextView style to my EditText in my layout.xml file, like this:


But I get an error within xml editor: "Error: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'style' with value '@android:style/ Widget_TextView')." It is strange because @android:style/ Widget_TextView definitively exists - I double checked it in code via Another strange thing is that I don't get android:style offered in the xml editor while typing? There is android:id, android:text and everything else.. but not android:style?

I consider the hard way (making EditText look like TextView) to be: extending EditText and overriding it's onDraw method.

Android :: ScrollView With EditText - Scrolling In EditText

May 14, 2010

Our app (WordPress for Android) uses a ScrollView for the new blog post view. The issue is that if a user writes a lengthy blog post in the EditText, they are unable to scroll inside of the EditText because the ScrollView seems to be taking over the scrolling action, even when you are in the EditText.

Here's the layout XML (the EditText in question is @id/content):

Android :: Placing A TextView Before EditText Element In Android Layout XML Causes EditText Not To Show

Jul 29, 2010

Every time I put a TextView before an EditText element in a LinearLayout, the EditText does not show. When I don't, it does.

I've narrowed the problem down to the TextView's layout_width attribute. If I give it "wrap_content", it works, but doesn't "block" down, and it appears on the same line as the EditText.

Android :: Android - EditText And Button - When Click Button - Unfocus EditText And Hide Soft Keyboard

Jun 24, 2010


I have this at the top of my application. When the application starts, the EditText is orange highlighted and has a cursor in it; when the EditText is tapped, the soft keyboard pops up. The user uses it to type into the EditText.

However, when they click the Button, my onClick method fires and does everything it's supposed to, however the soft keyboard stays on screen and the EditText is still highlighted with its cursor.

I also have, at the top of the Button onclick: findViewById(;

In spite of this, the EditText does not seem to clear its focus. How do I make the button actually act as if it is submitting the form?

Also, I do not transition to a different Activity on the click of the Button. I suppose that is the typical case, and probably the reason why they don't bother hiding the keyboard. However I want to keep the search box and button at the top of the screen, so I just dynamically fill and add views to the screen when the Button is pressed. How can I achieve my desired behavior?

Android :: Bug In WebView Highlight

Apr 3, 2009

I am seeing an annoying bug in WebView on the G1.I have a WebView that displays an HTML page. When the user clicks on a link, the link's text is highlighted.At this point, I call WebView.clearView(), and then WebView.loadDataWithBaseURL() to load the URL that the user has just clicked on.When the new page finally shows, the WebView somehow still remembers the previous highlight area. If the user clicks on the WebView again, a "phantom highlight" at the old location will flash quickly.The phantom highlight also appears when the user moves the trackball.

Android :: How To Highlight Clicks In App Widget?

Apr 29, 2010

I have an app widget which runs neatly. However, I am unable to highlight a click on a linked item. I've seen it in the standard app widgets like 'Music' and 'Power Control', for instance. Moreover, I've also been studying the Music app widget's source at album_appwidget.xml. The only thing I could think of is the LinearLayout defined at lines 23-35 which states android:clickable="true".Unfortunately, this does not work for me. So does anyone have a hint on how to highlight a click on an app widget? I've tried the LinearLayout, TextView and Button. None of them displayed a border as a highlight.

It should be some thing like the CurrencyConverter market App in Android. Can any one help me in sorting out this issue.

Android :: ImageView Focused / But No Highlight On Screen?

Oct 7, 2010

If I set my ImageView to be both clickable and focusable, it works, but I have no way to tell which image is focused. What's the best way to get it to draw an orange border around the view so the user knows it's currently in focus? I tried dropping it in a LinearLayout and setting that to be focusable and clickable instead, but didn't have any luck. Even when I put a margin on it, there's nothing to indicate that it was selected.

Android :: ListViews - No Focusable And Doesn't Highlight

Oct 2, 2010

I'm having a several issues with ListViews.

The first problem is the layout that I use for every row of the listview. When I click in a row I've programmed that it expands with some other views. All works fine, but when I try to click again for shrink it, it seems that it's no focusable and doesn't highlight and, of course, it doesn't shrink. If I change the deprecated singleLine in the XML to inputType="text" all works fine but the row never highlithts.

The second problem goes when I try the method that Romain Guy said about the RelativeLayouts and the alignwithParentIfMissing. No matter whatever I try, but it seems impossible to implement in a ListView.

Another problem is with ellipsize, but it looks is a Android SDK bug and only works fine if I set singleLine in the attributes of the TextView

Well, I hope someone can helps me. I put the code of the listview and the XML of the layout. If you need some more code or information, as if you find any improvement or error.


About the response of adamp, I've done this:


And finally, I have this listener:


Once I've done that, there is no change about the behaviour of the listview. But I noticed that only I can expand the row clicking in the textview, if I click inside the row but in a empty area nothing happens.

Android :: Highlight A Street Using Google Maps API?

Oct 11, 2010

Is there any possibility to highlight a street using the Google Maps API? I want to set a color on a street, similar as it is done in the navigation function of Google Maps.

If there is no generic implementation for this - and I guess there probably isn't - is there any good/simple solution for this? The only thing I could think of was reverse geocoding coordinates and see if those coordinates resolve to the street I want to color and if they did I would then draw some color on to those points. But this is a really ugly solution.

Android : Keep Focus Highlight On ExpandableList Group

Apr 15, 2009

I'm using an ExpandableListActivity and notice that whenever I select a group item (to expand or collapse it), it highlights briefly and then quickly un-highlights.

For my application, I want the group items to remain highlighted. I've tried requestFocus() and several other things but nothing is working.

Anyone know how to keep a selected group item (after expand or collapse) highlighted and focused?
