Android :: Style Own Styleable With A Style - Custom View Class With Custom Attribute

Jul 8, 2009

I'm creating my own View class, and defining custom xml attributes with a attrs.xml. As long as I provide each attribute manually, there is no problem, but


The android:text is properly set in my instance, but the borderDrawable is not. I guess this has something to do with namespaces, because inside the styles.xml, the name="mypack:borderDrawable" is not handled by the XML parser's namespace facility, because its inside an attribute value. So "mypack" is in no way connected to " matter" and adding it via xmlns:mypack... to the stylefile would not help, I guess. In the same file, "android:text" is somehow recognized, even though "android" is AFAIK only a ns-defintion for [url], which is also not declared in that file.

So what is the proper way to set a custom attribute in a style?

Android :: Getting Style Attribute To Work

Jun 3, 2009

I finally decided to use styles and themes instead of tediously setting attributes for each individual view. I was able to get the style to work when I set it on android:textAppearance, but when I try to just set it right on the style attribute like below, it no longer applies.This is happening to me for Buttons as well as TextViews. What I want is to be able to have a few different styles for text views and buttons and then just set the style on each button or text view.The style will need to define textSize, textColor, background and maybe a few others.Since background and some other things are not textAppearance,I need to use the general style attribute.

Android :: Programmatically Setting Style Attribute

Aug 13, 2009

This question is about setting the "style" attribute programmatically, but it needs a bit of background first. I wish to create a custom component which will looks like a EditText box but not actually allow direct input. (When focused or touched it will pop up a dialog to allow data to be entered).

Android :: Adding A + Or Any Other Code Before The Number In Contacts

Feb 17, 2010

I've been having a major problem with my contacts list since moving my contacts from a Blackberry to a Motorola Droid.

Lots of my contacts have phone numbers under one name, separated by a "+" or a calling code. If the phone number is exactly the same, only one number shows up in the Droid's contact. I never get the choice to pick the numbers inside the contact. This is a big problem for people who travel and need the "+" to make international calls or have a calling code before the number when they travel.

I made a contact called test. I added the number 11111111111 under home, then I added +11111111111 under mobile, then I added 2211111111111 under work. When you look for the contact test you should only see the choice to call 11111111111. The other numbers under the contact never show up.

General :: Google Hangouts - Adding Area Code

Nov 25, 2013

I recently started using Google Hangouts instead of SMS (TextMessaging). The only issue I have is that the numbers I havent added any areacode to gets the areacode for Sweden (+46), and this is ONLY on Google Hangouts.

When I go back to the regular SMS app, the areacode is removed, and I can again send SMS without sending it to Sweden first.

I'm from Norway if it matters (+47). But the phone itself is imported from Sweden, but I'm using Norwegian as language. I checked my gmail. I have my country set to Norway.

Android :: Accessing Style Items By Style ID

Nov 15, 2010

Any View have a constructor public View (Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) which called when View declared with a style attribute So, if I have some class inherited from View class, I can access to declared attributes (like "android:layout_width" or "android:background") via AttributeSet attrs in a constructor. But when I move attributes to style I cannot see attributes and values exists in a style - I want to read items declared in style but I have only styleID in defStyle parameter. Is there some way to read style Items using styleID?

Spinner Style Can't Be Changed To Newer Style?

Jan 8, 2014

I've developed a fairly extensive application. The problem began when I started spinners are the solid gray rectangular style (unlike the newer style with the triangle in the lower right corner). When I started developing this app several months ago, I couldn't figure out why my spinners were different (after many hours) so I just ignored it. I'm at the point now of polishing my program and want the newer spinner style. So, I'm beating my head against the wall again. I went to my Android SDK Mananger in Eclipse and updated my Android SDK Tools, Platform-tools, and Build-tools. I have the lastest versions of all of these (22.3 and 19.0.1). When I create a new project, the newer spinner style appears. However, none of my older projects changed. They still have the same old gray, rectangular type spinners. I tried using a "android format" line command I found while Googling, but no luck with that either.I'm using ADT Bundle with build v22.2.1-833290 on a Mac OSX Mavericks.

Android :: Attribute Must Be Localized

Sep 30, 2009

I'm trying to compile an app via Android 1.6, and got errors shown below. It said some strings in TextView and Button are not localized. I know how to fix them. It's easy to add them to strings.xml. But I still doubt why I need to localize every string. I don't think the strings like '1024' (pure number) or '80 x 25' need to be localized. Can't I set some strings to be non-localized? I searched SDK 1.6 documents, but can't find any help.

Android :: How To Retrieve XML Attribute For Custom Control?

Mar 17, 2010

I've created a combo box control with a edittext and spinner. I'm trying to let the android:prompt attribute be passed onto the spinner, which means I need to catch it in the constructor which passes my the AttributeSet and set it on the spinner. I can't figure out how to get the value of the prompt.

I get back 0, which means it didn't find the attribute.I also did a ta.count() which returned 0. So I'm not getting anything back.My XML simply defines an android:prompt value.

Android :: SAXParser Invalid Token Exception And Attribute Value

Jan 1, 2010

I am using SAXParser to parse an html page (any better solution?) and have this exception:
W/System.err( 1358): org.apache.harmony.xml.ExpatParser $ParseException: At line 1, column 59: not well-formed (invalid token)
I have reduced the page to this:
<div id="submenu"><a href="/compte/ id=382730&idt=1cf6b94aa1a4cf84"></a></div>
And what causes the exception is the '&' inside the href attribute value.

Here is a minimalist test code:
DefaultHandler emptySaxHandler = new DefaultHandler() {};
String xmlstr = "<div id="submenu"><a href="/compte/"></a></div>";
SAXParserFactory factory = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
SAXParser saxParser = factory.newSAXParser();
saxParser.parse(new ByteArrayInputStream(xmlstr.getBytes ()),emptySaxHandler);

Is this a normal behaviour or kind of bug? If normal, what should do to preprocess the string before parsing?

Android :: Exact Opposite Of Preference Attribute (Dependency)?

Aug 28, 2010

Is there XML attribute that does the exact opposite of android:dependency? What I would like the dependent preference to be enabled when the other is not checked and disabled when it is checked. Maybe the issue isn't with android:dependency maybe there is an xml attribute that I can add to make the default for that preference disabled and then android:dependency will toggle it the opposite way like I want. I tried setting android:enabled="false" in the preference and it disables it like I want but even with it being dependent on the other preference it didn't enable it like I had hoped.
