Android :: WebView : Preserve User's Zoom Settings Across Sessions?

Jun 2, 2010

My app uses a WebView, and users sometimes adjust the zoom level to make the text larger. However the zoom level setting is lost when the Activity is closed and another one started.

I can't see how to get and set the zoom level programatically on WebView, can anyone suggest a way this could be done?

Android :: How To Set Initial Zoom / Width For A Webview

Sep 27, 2010

I am trying to get the WebView to have similar behavior as the android browser. The browser opens all pages in a way that tries to fit their width to the screen. However, the default behavior of the WebView is to start at a 100% pixel scale so it starts zoomed in on the top left corner.

I have spent the last couple hours trying to find a way to get the WebView to scale the page to the screen like it does in the browser but I'm not having any luck. Has anyone found a way to accomplish this?

I see is a setting called setLoadWithOverviewMode, but that didn't appear to do anything at all. I also experimented with setInitialScale but on different screen sizes and web page sizes that won't be as graceful as the browsers scaling.

Any one have any leads?

Android :: Retrieve User-Agent Programatically Without Having A WebView In Activity?

Sep 2, 2010

Is there a way to retrieve Browser's user-agent without having a WebView in activity?

I know it is possible to get it via WebView:

WebView view = (WebView) findViewById(;
String ua = view.getSettings().getUserAgentString() ;

But in my case I don't have/need a webview object and I don't want to create it just for retrieving user-agent string.

Android :: Avoid User Input In A Field Of Form In A WebView?

Nov 1, 2010

When I load the touch Facebook login page in the webview, I want that the email field to be set to a value and it can't be modified and to accomplish that I have inserted a JavaScript code in the webview disabling that element. All works fine until I want to click the login button because the page refreshes instead of submit the login info. I've noticed that if I don't disable the item, the login button works fine but I don't know why occurs that.

What can be the problem? I've thought another way to make it works: Whenever the user try to modify the email field ignore whatever he do, but I think this is a less professional way to fix that.

Android :: Start Service At Boot Based On User Settings?

May 6, 2010

I'm trying to write an app that consists of an activity that manages a background service. However, I want to implement a user setting for automatically starting the service up at boot time. I have user settings implemented with SharedPreferences and I have the services starting up at boot by using a BroadcastReceiver and listening for BOOT_COMPLETED. However, I can't figure out a good way to implement a setting so that the service is only started at boot if said setting is enabled. I can think of a few cheap ways to do this (such as messing with onCreate() in the service, or creating/checking for a file on SD card) but I want to follow good practice. There must be a good way to do this because there's tons of apps out there that do it, I just can't find anything online about how to do it.

Android :: WebView.clearHistory() - Don't Want Back Button To Allow User To Go Back Further Than Current Session

Mar 31, 2009

I call WebView.clearHistory(), but I am still able to go back after doing so. I want to reuse a WebView, but I don't want the back button to allow the user to go back further than the current "session" of using the WebView. Anybody know what is the best way to handle this? I thought for sure that clearHistory() would do it.

Android :: Get 2 Sessions Registered In Localytics Per App-launch?

Jul 29, 2010

I am implementing useage statistics in my Android app.
I am still just testing.

I note that just starting my app and then immediately exiting will register two sessions (as they are called by Localytics) in the live statistics.

I have followed the guidelines in Android Integration.

My app consists of a main Class of the TabActivity type. This TabActivity holds two tabs in which I display two other activities.

Like this:


I instantiate the Localytics object in all three Activities like this:


So, the above code lines are repeated in each of the three Activities. In the TabHost Activity (only in this Activity) I then follow the instantiation with a this.localyticsSession.upload();

And then (only in the TabHost Activity) I have these to finish things off:


How to make my code generate just one session per app-launch?

Android :: Store Http-cookies Between Sessions?

Aug 4, 2010

I'm developing an app that logs into a web site. To do this I use the HttpClient object.

I noticed I could get all the cookies from the post requests with the HttClient.getCookieStore method, the question is however how I save these cookies so the next time the app is started, the user don't have to log in.

I should also mention that while the login was post request, rest of the site is mostly get requests, does this effect how the cookies are managed at all?

Android :: Huge Drop In Sessions For All Of Apps (using Flurry)

Dec 2, 2009

I noticed a huge drop in sessions for all of my apps (using Flurry). I don't think the problem is reporting, since ad revenue and sales were also affected. Sessions for my most popular game plunged yesterday to a level of a month ago, and all my apps saw a similar drop (about 25-30%). I didn't see anything about outages or issues on any of the blogs I follow...anyone here know anything?

Android :: Preserve Data In Views When Switches Between Landscape And Portrait?

Feb 9, 2009

1) Does Google think there will only be one screen size on Android phones? The reason I ask is because I haven't been able to find anything on "variable" layouts in Android? I would like to create a layout with 2 webviews, one 80% of screen height and the other 20%. Is this even possible, or do I need to assign the height of each as a static "px" value?

2) How do I preserve the data in my views when someone switches between landscape and portrait? I doubt it's hard, but I've not been able to find it. Can someone post an example?
