Android :: Widget Updating A Clock With Custom Images As Numbers

Aug 22, 2010

What way is most efficient for updating an widget that will be a clock(Timer/Alarm), but for a clock to really works, like a clock it would be needed to update at least twice in a minute (30 sec period or less).

But that can't be effective? Have looked at some of the "threads/topics" here at StackOverFlow but haven't found any information regarding effectiveness.

(Don't own an android device yet, so I can't really test battery draining and cpu)

Android :: Updating Pendulum Sound In Clock Widget

Nov 2, 2010

I am currently trying to create a cuckoo clock widget in which I am facing problem with updating the pendulum sound each second. My pendulum has to keep on ticking each second with sound effects integrated. I am doing update every second and I am able to play the sound using
mPlay = MediaPlayer.create(context, R.raw.chime); mPlay.start();
But after about 30 seconds, the sound stops playing giving the log error as follows:
E/AudioTrack( 2106): AudioFlinger could not create track, status: -12 E/AudioSink( 2106): Unable to create audio track E/VorbisPlayer( 2106): mAudioSink open failed

Then again the same sound starts playing after a pause of about 20 seconds instead of getting played each second. It continues in this fashion of playing the sound file for some seconds, then to the pause state and then again playing from start. This problem doesn't come into picture when I'm trying to update the sound on hourly basis for my hourly chime because in that case only once every hour this sound is played, same is the case for updation every minute. This problem arises only for updating the sound each second. What is the reason behind this delay?

General :: UCCW Clock Widget Not Updating

Jul 14, 2013

The widget is ThreeBarClock - UCCW by RyanMKelly. [URL] ....

When device is in sleep and I switch it back on, the widget is still 'stuck' behind time and doesn't get updated for a few seconds. Anything I am doing wrong? I am using Nova Prime launcher. I first noticed the problem when I hid the notification bar via Nova settings. I had since enabled the notification bar but the problem still persists.

Android :: Custom Clock Widget Service Work-around?

Dec 21, 2009

I was interested in developing a clock widget for the homescreen and upon reading Home Screen Widgets tutorial, I wondered if there is a pre-existing Service I could reference for updating the current time rather than re-inventing the wheel?I download the Retro Clock application on my android phone and noticed that when I click it, it pops up the Alarm Clock settings, but with the default Google Analog Clock widget, upon click does nothing.Is that because the Retro Clock widget implements the Alarm Clock service? If so, how can I go about referencing that service? Or do I have this all wrong and misunderstood?

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(R.id.button, pendingIntent);................

HTC Incredible :: Weather/Clock App Not Updating

May 11, 2010

The HTC clock that has the weather foreacast on it is not updating, or rather, not holding the setting when I say YES to automatic update

I go into Menu>Setting>Update automatically, click on the box, then get the Data warning "this may result in additional charges from your wireless provider. Enable automatic download of weather data"

Click on YES

then I back out, and go back in to the setting, and the box is UNCHECKED again.

It's not holding the update yes setting.

General :: Lewa Rom V13.06.07 - Clock Stops Updating?

Jun 18, 2013

I am using Lewa Rom v13.06.07 on my Jiayu G3 android phone and am very happy with it. The best thing I have seen. However, there is one thing that needs fixing. When I use Viber and exit from it by pressing home button everything still works but if I close it by "sliding" it as you normally close all non running apps it stops and you get no calls or notifications. This is also true for some other apps like HD Widgets (the clock stops updating) and so on.

I believe these issues are caused by built-in task killer which stops all "unnecessary" processes.

So, I wonder if there is some way to set the rules which process will still run in the background

HTC Droid Eris :: Clock Widgets / Time Not Updating

Jan 6, 2010

When I have an HTC Clock widget on my home screen the time does not update fluidly. The clock will display the correct time only after I've unlocked the phone and given it several seconds to update. If I swipe over to another screen, wait any period of time (the longer the better), and swipe back; the clock will display the time at which I left that screen and again needs several seconds before it leaps to the correct time. I've tested this theory on the native Android clock widget and it worked correctly. IMO, it defeats the purpose of having the HTC clock widget when the clock in the notifications bar is always accurate. I am also using ATK but I've made sure the Clock process/app is in the ignore list.

Android :: Genie Widget Not Updating

Jun 24, 2010

2.1 OEM on Droid Incredible. It still says the temp from yesterday afternoon and stuck on the same news story. Tried re-adding widget and still nothing. Refresh does nothing. Also reinstalled yesterday because I was having the same problem and nothing. It's a great little widget, but if it doesn't update it's pointless for me. Had the same problem with the ESPN scorecenter widget. Would never load data correctly or wouldn't update. Made sure I'm not closing the widget in my task killer and still won't update.

Android :: Updating Widget In Emulator

May 4, 2010

I have a simple widget that sets up its appearance during the initial update.
This involves using RemoteViews:
updateViews.setImageViewResource(R.id..., R.drawable....);
updateViews.setViewVisibility(R.id..., View.....);

The widget's onUpdate method is the usual stuff:
for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) { int appWidgetId = appWidgetIds[i];
RemoteViews updateViews = buildUpdate(context);
appWidgetManager.updateAppWidget(appWidgetId, updateViews);
}

Android :: Updating Calendar Widget

Sep 28, 2010

I don't know if any of you use this already, but this is the most useful calendar app I've ever used. I can see this easily adapting to an Android widget, and think it would be very useful to many.

iCalViewer home page | Mac iCal calendar events and to do's on your desktop

It uses a timeline in order to see upcoming events. The vertical line is "now", and events in your calendar move across the screen towards the line the closer the events come to happening.

I already use this on my Mac, and would freaking LOVE it if someone stepped up to make something similar for Android.

Android :: Weather Channel Widget Not Updating Automatically

Apr 3, 2010

Over the past couple days, it seems like my Weather Channel app hasn't been working properly. When I move to the home screen that has the widget, it will be displaying the wrong temperature and picture (i.e. it might be showing "partly sunny" when it's night time). It just shows the temperature for the last time I opened the app.So, I click on the widget to open the app, and it brings me to one of the screens and it just says "N/A", while a green circle rotates in the upper-right corner. After a few seconds, it finally updates and shows me the current temperature/forecast (whichever screen I was in last).I've never had these problems before, up until the past few days. Usually I would just move over to my other home screen, look at the temp, and move back. It would always be [somewhat] updated by itself (usually every 30-60 minutes it seemed). Now it doesn't update until I actually open the app.Any ideas or suggestions? Or is anyone else having this problem? I am using the Droid Eris. I restarted the phone yesterday, still doing the same thing.

Nexus :: Updating To 2.2.1 With Custom Recovery

Oct 7, 2010

I bought a nexus one from someone off craigslist and it was already rooted and has a custom recovery RA-nexus-v1.7.0.1 installed. I currently have FRF93 installed but my phone keeps harassing me to download the OTA 2.2.1 update. Of course when I try to install the update it gives the standard verification failed and I'm assuming I need a custom update.zip like I needed when I upgraded to FRF93.
