Android :: Create Widget Like Analogue Clock Widget That Update Itself?

May 1, 2010

I can create a static widget without thinking, I can even create a widget like the analogue clock widget that will update itself, however, I can not for the life of me figure out how to create a widget that reacts to when a user clicks on it. Here is the best code sample that the developer documentation gives to what a widget activity should contain (the only other hint being the API demos, which only creates a static widget):

public class ExampleAppWidgetProvider extends AppWidgetProvider {
public void onUpdate(Context context, AppWidgetManager appWidgetManager, int[] appWidgetIds) {
final int N = appWidgetIds.length;

// Perform this loop procedure for each App Widget that belongs to this provider
for (int i=0; i<N; i++) {
int appWidgetId = appWidgetIds[i];

// Create an Intent to launch ExampleActivity
Intent intent = new Intent(context, ExampleActivity.class);
PendingIntent pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0, intent, 0);

// Get the layout for the App Widget and attach an on-click listener to the button
RemoteViews views = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.appwidget_provider_layout);
views.setOnClickPendingIntent(, pendingIntent);................

Android :: Process Is Bad - Error For Widget

Jul 15, 2010

I have developed an Android Widget, and it was working fine. I added some extra functionality and pushed an update through the Android Market. Now people are complaining that it doesn't work anymore.

The error I see in the logs is:


I cannot find anywhere what the process is bad error means. Restarting the phone (or emulator) makes the error go away, however, that is not what I want my users to do. explain what the cause of the error is.

Android :: Using ScrollView Inside Layout Xml File For A Widget - Got Error

Nov 22, 2010

I'm able to successfully use a ScrollView inside the layout xml file for an application. However, when I tried using a ScrollView inside the layout xml file for a widget, I get a "Problem Loading Widget" error as soon as I drop the widget in the emulator. If I comment out the ScrollView, then the widget shows up in the emulator. I've pasted my layout xml file below. Any thoughts on how to get past this error would be much appreciated.



android:text="@string/button_ok" />

Android :: Error With App After Update To 2.2

Jun 1, 2010

i recently update to 2.2 and encounter two problems: problem 1: My app stop working. First I thought is the changes I made, but after reverting to the last revision the app is still crashing. The app is targeted for 1.5 and it crash when I press the "menu" button with the following stack trace: Thread [<3> main] (Suspended (exception IndexOutOfBoundsException)) ViewRoot.deliverKeyEventToViewHierarchy(KeyEvent, boolean) line: 2244 ViewRoot.handleFinishedEvent(int, boolean) line: 2158 ViewRoot.handleMessage(Message) line: 1490 ViewRoot (Handler).dispatchMessage(Message) line: 99 Looper.loop() line: 123 ActivityThread.main(String[]) line: 3948 Method.invokeNative(Object, Object[], Class, Class[], Class, int, boolean) line: not available [native method] Method.invoke(Object, Object) line: 521 ZygoteInit$ line: 782 ZygoteInit. main (String []) line: 540 NativeStart.main(String[]) line: not available [native method] I do have onCreate Options Menu and onOptionsItemSelected implemented but the execution never reach my code. I tried to uninstall the app, install it again, delete the device and created again - no luck. I tried to rebuild the project as well. That did not help, however lead to problem 2: I have two apps in the workspace. Every time when I launch Eclipse, both projects dont have any errors. However rebuilding all projects always results in build error in the second project: The project cannot be built until build path errors are resolved And this error will not go away unless I restart Eclipse. Ubuntu 10.4 Eclipse 3.5.2 Target platform Android 1.5 I'm new to Java/Android.

Android : Paid App Update Error

Feb 26, 2009

When we issued our first update for a paid app, it bombs the minute a user downloads, install and tries to run.New users have no problems.For awhile I thought it was something we were doing as developers, but I'm reading descriptions of very popular free games saying, "To upgrade uninstall and reinstall".The free developers have this luxury.For paid apps the purchaser can't request a refund after the second download.If this is a market issue we are f*#%ed.Please tell me the magic way to get an upgrade out.Also, are developers testing this?

Android : FeedSquares Update Error

Aug 24, 2010

Whenever I go to my "Downloads" in the Market app, FeedSquares for Google Reader is trying to download an update. It is always unsuccessful. I uninstalled the app (using Uninstaller) and it's still on the "Downloads" screen. If I look up FeedSquares in the Market app and select it, "Cancel Download" is my only option. If I select that, the Market app crashes with "The application Market (process has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."I've tried everything I can think of, including a reboot. At this point, I don't care if it gets deleted, reinstalled, etc, as long as it gets off of my Downloads screen. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm using the smaller version (day view I guess) of the HTC Calender Widget.Under the calender settings --> views, I have "Include Weather" checked and a city is also populated, but the weather is not showing.On the widget itself, the day is on the left hand side, then on the right it just reads "No Events Today or Tomorrow".Where is the darn weather?

Android :: Widget On Update / OnReceive

Aug 9, 2010

I initialize some arrays in an onUpdate() method and after that, using an intent and a button, I try to call onReceive() function which runs fine but cannot access arrays set in onUpdate() method. Why is that? Those array's are object variables and are declared public.Am I missing something?package net.aerosoftware.widgettest;
import java.util.HashMap;
import android.appwidget.AppWidgetManager;
import android.appwidget.AppWidgetProvider;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.util.Log;
import android.widget.RemoteViews;
public class WidgetTest extends AppWidgetProvider { public static String ACTION_WIDGET_RECEIVER = "ActionReceiverWidget";
public HashMap<Integer, String> channelsImages;
@Overridepublic void onUpdate(Context context, AppWidgetManager appWidgetManager, int[] appWidgetIds)
{ Log.e("UPDATE", "Start");
RemoteViews remoteViews = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.main);

Android :: How To Update Widget Dynamically?

May 28, 2010

I am currently learning about widgets in Android. I want to create a WIFI widget that will display the SSID, the RSSI (Signal) level. But I also want to be able to send it data from a service I am running that calculates the Quality of Sound over wifi. Here is what I have after some reading and a quick tutorial: public class WlanWidget extends AppWidget Provider {RemoteViews remoteViews; AppWidgetManager appWidgetManager; Component Name thisWidget; WifiManager wifiManager; public void onUpdate(Context context, AppWidgetManager appWidget Manager, int[] appWidgetIds) { timer timer = new Timer(); timer.schedule AtFixed Rate(new WlanTimer(context, appWidgetManager), 1, 10000); The above seems to work ok, it updates the SSID on the widget every 10 seconds. However what is the most efficent way to get the information from my service that will be already running to update periodically on my widget? Also is there a better approach to updating the the widget rather than using a timer and timertask?

Android :: Update A Widget From An Activity?

Sep 22, 2009

I have been looking for a way to update a widget asynchronously, for example, when the phone receives a text message. I have a broadcast receiver set up with code that runs upon receiving a message. I also have an AppWidgetProvider that is set up and running. It seems like the *only* way a widget can be updated is upon its interval, or when the user interacts with it. Is there any way to update a widget upon a system event?

Android :: Update Widget From Activity

Nov 1, 2010

I have a widget, its setup so that when I click on it, it opens some settings in an activity.


This configures some settings for the application. What I want to achieve is to have the widget update its view to reflect the changed settings when the Activity I launch closes. Using the update interval or any other type of polling isn't appropriate for this.

I've seen a couple places here and in the android docs this code used:


But I don't know how to get the mAppWidgetId value. I tried following the example for a widget configuration activity here, but in the following code,


Extras is always null, so I never get the AppWidgetID.

Android :: Update Widget From Code

Apr 22, 2009

Depending on what I do in my application, I might want to force an update on my widget. I've have had a poke around and can't seem to find any API for doing a manual update. At the moment, I have a function that sends a broadcast and my onReceive does this:


Is there a proper way to do this, which sents the int array to the correct values? Or do I have to do it like this instead?

Android :: How Update Widget Often But Only When It Is Visible

Mar 10, 2010

I'm going to create widget which needs to update its content every minute (it shows time-related data).

However, there is no need to update widget if it is currently invisible, which means:

screen is turned off
another app is running
widget is placed on another (invisible) home screen tab

What is the best way to update only visible widget every minute - without waking up device nor doing unnecessary computations? After widget becomes visible, small lag before update is acceptable.

Android :: Update Widget On Condition

Aug 9, 2010

I'm just starting with android development and have written an application to show details about the battery status.

Now I wanted to put the whole thing into an widget - and here's the question:
Do I really need a update service in the background to listen for ACTION_BATTERY_CHANGED intents? My first thought was to put just a <action android:name="android.intent.action.ACTION_BATTERY_CHANGED" /> line into the <intet-filter> tag of the widget in the AndroidManifest.xml - but obviously it's not that simple.

If the UpdateService is the right way I'll do so - but I just wanted to make sure what the proper solution is.
