Aug 15, 2010

I want to show the softkeyboard, but it does not work. Here is my code...

When i touch the screen, the softkeyboard does not appear, but the alertDialog "edit text" appears, which appears on normal edittexts when you long touch them.
This additional code in the onCreate has no affection:
InputMethodManager input = (InputMethodManager)
input.showSoftInput(myTextView, 0);

Android :: Trigger The Soft Keyboard For EditText In Dialogs

Nov 18, 2009

I am rendering an EditText as one element of a list-style AlertDialog (which is backed by the default ListView implementation). I sort of expected that this circumstance would not change the behavior of EditText, but it does: a click on the EditText does not spawn the soft keyboard anymore.

After an hour of messing around with focus settings and click handlers I got fed up and debugged into InputMethodManager.showSoftInput(), and found this:


The problem here is that mServedView is the ListView that's backing the dialog, while view is the EditText, and ListView.checkInputConnectionProxy() does simply return false in the default implementation of ListView (to be overridden by subclasses).

Worse, I couldn't find a way to set a custom ListView which allows proxying IME reuqests; AlertDialog.Builder.setView() accepts a custom ListView, but this is not the ListView that InputMethodManager sees.

Android :: Create Custom Dictionary For Edittext

Aug 22, 2010

Is it possible to create a custom dictionary for an edittext? In other words, can I create a custom list and have the edittext only suggest names from that list? I don't need it popping up useless word suggestions when the user is inputting specific names of people.

Android :: Copy And Paste Image On EditText - But EditText Show Me Obj

Jan 15, 2010

Adding an image on EditText works fine. However, copying an image is another problem. When I insert an image on EditText by using ImageSpan it shows correctly, but I copy inserted image, EditText shows me only 'obj'.

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 : How To Thump - Name Of Haptic Trigger?

Feb 26, 2009

Can someone clue me in on the name of the intent that triggers the haptic feedback when the user selects icons on the desktop, or when in Labyrinth the ball hits the wall. I thought it was vibrate ... but after playing with Labyrinth I am sure there is something else. In Labyrinth it feels as if the thump occurs relative to where the ball hits (but I am not sure if this is really the case or I am imagining it).

I asked about this before and thought I had figured it out myself (thought it might be a short burst of vibrate) but apparently not.

Android : Intent To Trigger A Dialog Only?

Apr 9, 2009

I want to expose a portion of my app with an intent that will only display a simple dialog box for system setting. The only way I currently know how to do this is to have an activity that accepts an intent. In the activity I don't use setContentView. I only create and show the dialog. The activity is finished after you press OK from the dialog.

This is kind of okay, but the activity shows as a black backdrop under the dialog, until you press OK which brings you back to the last application. I'd like to just be able to show the dialog on top of the calling Activity. Any idea on how this can be done? CAN it be done?

Android :: Broadcast Receivers - Trigger Their Associates?

Apr 21, 2010

Can anyone give a hint if you know why there are some ACTIONS that do not trigger their associated receivers when they are registered in the manifest while they are received when they are register through registerReceiver() ? For instance, when I declare: <receiver android:name=".MyReceiver"> <intent-filter> <action android:name= "android.intent .action .NEW_ OUTGOING_CALL" /></intent-filter> </receiver> if the application is NOT running My Receiver is never invoked. But now, if I register the intent from inside a service, MyReceiver is invoked properly

Android : After Removing OverlayItem Tap Events Are Still Trigger / Fix?

Oct 27, 2010

I have a simple overlay for a Google Map: and I add/remove items on it depending on the zoom level. After removing/adding I call populate on the overlay and invalidate on the map view. Everything works just fine, except 1 glitch: after an item was removed, if I tap its location onTap is still triggered and because the OverlayItem is not there anymore i get java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException in 562) (full stack trace - )

Anyone knows why this is happening or how to fix it? Initially i called clear and added all items all over again which didn't seems to cause this problem. However having many items this was becoming a performance issue. Adding/removing only the difference works much faster and I would like to keep this method.

Android : Setup Trigger On Contacts Database In Droid?

Dec 3, 2009

I have a requirement wherein I need a list of all the contacts that are edited/changed.

As per the Android documentation,


will be set every time a contact is edited. But, there seems to be a bug in this, which makes this always set to 1 (no matter what), even is we explicitly set it to 0.

So, I was wondering if I can create a SQLite TRIGGER on the contacts database. Such that, everytime a contact is edited, the edited contact id is populated into a different table which I can read later from my application.

I tried this...

CREATE TRIGGER IF NOT EXISTS updated_contacts UPDATE ON 'contacts.db'.phones
INSERT INTO updated_table SET updated_id=old.person;

But a few problems here...

1) 'phones' is a table in the contacts database. but, I am not sure about the name of the contacts database (here I have assumed it to be 'contacts.db').

2) updated_table is a table on a different database 'mydatabase.db' that I have created from my application. and, I am not sure if I can set TRIGGERS across different databases.

All this in Android 1.6 Also, I am not sure about the permission to access native contacts database on Android.

Is there any other way of achieving this.

Android : How Can I Make An App Trigger A Set Of Actions On April 01, 2011

Sep 27, 2010

I am trying to build an app on my wife's phone that pranks her on April 01, April Fool's day of course. The app is going to change her background to look like the screen was cracked, the background is very convincing when I try it on my Droid (I was pranked similarly).

Anyway, digging into how this would work, I think its quite the process, however, I may be looking too far into this. I started diving into setting an alarm, however, I am confused about a couple things:

Would it be necessary for my wife's phone to load this prank application in the background each time she reboots her phone? I am assuming yes, as I believe this prank application would most likely invoke a broadcast receiver to "listen" for April 01, 2011?
If the application doesn't need to load each time in the background, what facilitates Android alerting my application and firing it when April 01, 2011 comes around?

I hope that makes any sense, basically, I want to ensure this application runs on April 01, 2011 even if my wife's phone crashes or reboots.

What would be the most straightforward method of making this work? I apologize if I don't understand broadcast receivers properly, this is quite the new concept which I am not use to. The Service and Broadcast Receiver functionality is native to Android and not any other language, no?

Android : Can I Trigger Google Maps From Droid Browser?

Sep 30, 2010

I have a website designed for the android browser using jquery/jqtouch. As a part of it, i have a map page that loads. In the process of displaying my data, I found that some of my customer's addresses, when clicked kick of the google app map, with the data sent to it. It also seems to load and run a ton faster (as well as having all the benefits of navigation, etc).

So I've searched and searched, but am unable to "emulate" that built in function of kicking off the address. I've tried links with geo: and maps:, etc, but to none will open the installed app. Yet, just having a <li></li> item with an address, the browser will detect a "proper" address and open the app.

I don't care if i have to kick it off with javascript, or a href, it just has to be embedded in the html.

Android : Trigger A Media Scan From Within Droid To Make Quicker For Stuff?

Nov 15, 2010

With a lot of apps eg, camera, pictures appears in the gallery immediately, but some apps like Dropbox or blackmoon Attachsave, if you put a picture or MP3 or whatever on the card, they can not appear for ages.

One way on my Galaxy Apollo is to plug in USB and go into storage mode, it then scans the disk (A little icon in the status bar) and the media is now there.

A more extreme way is to unmount the card and then physically remove it and re-insert (I dont have to remove the battery) and it sets off a scan.

Is there anyway to trigger a media scan from within android to make it quicker for stuff to appear?

HTC Droid Eris :: How To Pull Trigger?

Dec 11, 2009

I really am trying to order my Eris today. I have been waiting for the Passion, though I am not even sure I would choose it over the Eris. Also considered the Moto many times, but just can't get over how large it feels in my pocket (also concerned I am too rough on things to have a sliding mechanism on my phone). As Eris owners, am I crazy not to wait it out another 4 weeks or so to see if the Passion's speed and screen resolution are worth an extra $100+?? By the way, I am not worried about the battery.
