Android :: Way To Manipulate The Droid Activity Stack?

Jun 23, 2010

1 - User opens app for the first time ever from android home screen User is presented with "first time" screen (backed by first time activity, lets call it A) User hits back button user is returned to android home screen 2 - User opens app for second time User is presented with the main list screen of the application (backed by a list activity, let's call it B) User hits back button User is returned to android home screen I'm already aware of numerous ways to detect whether it's the first time opening the app or not. The problem is in having the back button return to the home screen rather than a routing activity that decides which screen to forward to.

Android :: How To Manipulate Activity Back Stack?

Nov 22, 2010

I want to implement the following logic. I have 4 activites A, B, C and D. The flow is A -> B -> C -> D When the user navigates from A -> C he should be able to get back to the previous activities by pressing the back button. But after reaching D pressing the back button should take him to activity A. And pressing the back button againg should exit the application instead of taking him back to B / C / D. How do I do it.

Android :: How To Limit Number Of Same Activity On Stack For Droid App?

May 10, 2010

Is this possible in an Android app? I want to make it so that no matter how many times a user starts activityA, when they hit the back button they will never get more than one occurence of activityA. What I am finding in my current code is that I have only two options 1. I can call finish() in activityA which will prevent it from being accessible via the back button completely, or 2. I do not call finish(), and then if the user starts activityA (n) times during their usage, there will be (n) instances when hitting the back button. Again, I want to have activityA accessible by hitting the back button, but there is no reason to keep multiple instances of the same activity on the stack. Is there a way to limit the number of instances of an activity in the queue to only 1?

Android :: Way To Visualize Activity Stack (activities In Memory) On Droid?

Jun 26, 2010

I'm currently debugging my app which is quite complex and has up to 5 activity levels. In order to detect memory leaks (i.e. activities that aren't removed from memory even finish() is called, due to some references held somewhere) I want to check which activities are still alive in memory. Currently I create hprof dumps, but it's not very convenient, cause every time I need to mount the sdcard, copy the hprof dump file from the sdcard to my PC, etc. (Side note: I already tried to automate the pulling of my hprof file more easily, but I'm on an unrooted device and adb pull <hprof file> won't let me / no permission.) Therefore I am wondering, if all I want to know is IF and WHICH activities are still currently alive in my memory, is there a way through the Android API or any other way on-the-fly with which I can achieve this (list all alive activities of my app), programatically.

Android :: How To Clear Activity Stack If Using Same Activity Multiple Times?

Mar 3, 2010

So I have an app with Activity A. The layout on the activity is dynamic genearted. So it's possible that on Activity A a user hits a button that goes to "A" and the new page looks different, then a user clicks another button to go to "A" again. Now I have 2 Activities in the history stack. A, A, and currently on A. Is it possible that if a user clicks a button that the whole Activity stack is cleared in a scenario such as this?

Android :: Way To Skip Parts Of An Activity Stack When Returning Results In Droid?

Oct 16, 2009

I'm making an app which has a flow roughly as below: User starts on the main screen with an empty list, hits menu, and goes to "add item." (Activity A) User is given a new activity which allows them to specify search criteria, then hits "go" to do a search. (Activity B) User gets a list of results, and can click on one of them to view more details. (Activity C) User sees details of item, and can use a menu item to save it to their list in Activity A. (Activity D) Right now, I am having each Activity call each other Activity for results, and then it is passing the result all the way back up the stack as it returns to Activity A. Is there a way to jump this, since all I want is for a result in Activity D to get to Activity A directly? Note that a user should still be able to navigate backwards (using the back button) through each activity, but if they explicitly save the item in Activity D, I want it to jump straight to Activity A.

Android :: How To Clear All Activity In Stack Below Latest Activity?

Dec 22, 2009

All the current discussions involves clearing all activites above an existing activyt, but I'm trying to find a way to clear all the activities before the latest activity in the stack. So my scenario is A -> B -> C and then when a user goes to Activity D, activies A,B,C should be cleared from the activity stack. FLAG_ACTIVITY _CLEAR_TOP seems to only clear any activites above an existing activity. Anybody run into this scenario and found a solution?

i want to clear the activity stack and replace it with a new activity as the root activity, even if that activity exists somewhere on the stack (or not). i see FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP and FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK, but it's not obvious to me how to use those in conjunction to achieve what I want. it's like i want to completely restart the task with some activity that i specify as the new root.

Android :: Strange Activity Stack Behavior When Using Map Activity

Apr 23, 2010

I have the following activity structure in my application A simple "splash screen" activity is started when the application is fired up (let's call it "Splash"). This activity starts the main activity when the user presses a button (I will call it "Main"). Main can in turn start two activities from the menu. The first activity presents a simple form (let's call this one "Form"), the second is a MapActivity that presents a map (it is called "Map").
Main, Form, and Map are declared exactly the same in the manifest:
<activity android:name="fully qualified activity class"
android:screenOrientation="landscape"
android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation"
> <intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter> </activity> When Main is active and I start Form and press "back", Main comes up again. Pressing "back" again brings up "Splash". Nothing strange here.Now comes the strange part: when I am in Main, start Map, and press "back", Main comes up as expected. But pressing "back" again just restarts Main. A second press on "back" is needed to bring me back to Splash!So it seems that starting the Map activity somehow results in Main ending up on the activity stack twice while starting the Form activity does not! Both Form and Map are started like this: start Activity(new Intent(this, MyActivity.class)); I don not catch the back key in any activity.Any clues on what is going on or how to debug this?

Android :: Clear Activity Stack?

Nov 3, 2009

Is there a way to clear our Activity stack? For example, a user in my app progresses through these activities, one is launched from the previous activity: ActivityA -> ActivityB -> ActivityC if the user is now looking at ActivityC, and they hit the back button, they will go back to ActivityB. Is it possible to add a menu to ActivityC where the user can clear their activity stack, and then launch a new instance of ActivityA? This would be so the user can jump to a particular activity in my application without getting confused with the back button + history,

Android :: Activity Stack Not Preserved

Mar 10, 2010

My main activity A has as set android:launchMode="singleTask" in the manifest. Now, whenever I start another activity from there, e.g. B and press the HOME BUTTON on the phone to return to the home screen and then again go back to my app, either via pressing the app's button or pressing the HOME BUTTONlong to show my most recent apps it doesn't preserve my activity stack and returns straight to A instead of the expected activity B.Is there a setting I'm missing or is this a bug? If the latter, is there a workaround for this until the bug is fixed?

Android :: Traversing Activity Stack

Sep 1, 2010

how can I assure I always go back clicking on custom menu option to previous activity. I think it is a good idea to start new activities by startActivity(context, XActivity.class) but then when option is selected I should call finish on that activity or again call startActivity(this, previousActivityName)?on the other hand android has all activities on a stack so clicking goback button on a phone I will always go back to previous view, so how can I get this stack.

Android :: Resetting Activity Stack

Sep 22, 2009

Activities: A & B are activities that once you have navigated away from them it's not logical that you can get back to them using the back button. C X are activities that follow the usual "can go back to where you came from" flow.App flow: * Launch app from Home -> starts A * From A start B * Finish A (removes it from stack) * From B start C * Finish B (removes it from stack) * From C start D * From D start E.Once the user has reached E, the activity stack looks like this: C -> D -> E. Can I somehow reset the whole stack so it starts again at A so it's as the user just launched it from Home (so that C... E are removed from the history stack)?

Android :: Not Understanding Activity Stack?

Dec 3, 2009

I'm having trouble with my activities when they go in the background. I have two activities, A and B. Only A can launch B (manifest copied below).This is very confusing. It's like Android knows my app is running, and puts a new instance of A on top of the old B instance running. I'd just expect that the application gets paused in-place, and whenever the user hits the app icon again, it just picks up where it left off (in this case, just show B again!) Below is the manifest, and the activity classes for this test are completely empty (except A which has a button to launch B).

Android :: How To Reuse Activity On Top Of Stack

Jun 16, 2010

My app has a single entry activity called "Main". In "Main" I call one of three other activities A, B, or C (based on a preference) and then immediately exit/finish"Main" so that only A, B, or C are active.I also have a permanent notification in the notification bar that users can pull down (at any time) to conveniently restart my App (calls intent with "Main" component).The problem is that if my app is already running and users pull down the notification and restart, I get A or B or C running on top of the previous activity (also A, or B, or C). How can I avoid this (i.e. reuse the activity on top of the stack)?I've tried Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_* and nothing seems to work. I've tried launchModel in the Manifest and it also didn't seem to work.
