Android :: Location DistanceTo Uses Error Parameter In Approximate Distance Calculation?

Jun 27, 2010

I am wondering if the Location.distanceTo method will use the accuracy field of the Location object when approximates the location, or do I have to add by my own the errors to these fields. The usage is to compare the distance against a proximity value.

Float dist=currentLocation.distanceTo(loc2); Would this be if (dist<100meters) or

if (dist+currentLocation.getAccuracy()+loc2.getAccuracy()<100meters)

Android :: Accuracy Of Location.getAccuracy() GSM And GPS - Exact Meaning?

Jun 16, 2010

As said in the Android Reference, the method getAccuracy() of android.location: "Returns the accuracy of the fix in meters. If hasAccuracy() is false, 0.0 is returned." But what does that mean exactly? The diameter or the radius? The Circular Error Probable (CEP), the 95-percentile or something else? I hope they are of the same type in GPS and GSM positioning. Does somebody know where these information are given into the system? As far as i know, are the GSM coordinates returned by a hidden Google API over a Web Service. So no chance to see an exact calculation. But where is the Accuracy of GPS calculated. I thought the GPS receiver only returns a dimensionless DOP value. And with Android 1.5 its not posible to read the NMEA sentences directly.

Android :: How To Fit An Exact Background Layout?

Sep 20, 2010

I have a background image (full screen) and want to create an exact layout, which fits this background-image. The buttons and labels have to be at an exact place of the background-image. How can I do this? The absolute-layout is deprecated. If I use relative layout, I can use margins, but the positions differ from device to device. The best thing is if I could set the exact positions as percent of the total view size. How can I do this?

Android :: Obtaining Exact SDK Source

Sep 2, 2009

I was hoping someone could give me instructions to obtain the *exact *source code for the current SDK. What I have so far is as discussed here; By using commands such as; repo init -u git://android . git . kernel .org/platform/manifest.git -b android-sdk-1.5_r3 jar cvf ../android-src.jar -C core/java . etc. my issue is that the source is still inconsistent, some extra methods are available and some are not. For example, I want to make a progress bar with two sliders (To select a range) but the version of Progress bar I have; http:// android /base.git;a=blob ;.http://android .git.kernel .org/?p=platform/ frameworks /base.git;a=blob;> I cannot mimic (as an initial implementation), despite using the same package and extending View I do not have access to 'mMinWidth' for example. In addition the progress bar uses methods of the class StateList Drawable which are not available in this SDK (e.g. getStateSet(int i)). It's obvious that there's an inconsistency between the source I have and that which was compiled into the android SDK but I don't know why given my GIT repo commands. Can someone link to the version of ProgressBar which was shipped with android-sdk-1.5_r3? Has anyone managed to get the branch which maps directly to this release? This might well be due my inexperience with Git, please let me know if anyone has this set up correctly and I will try again. I seem, in all honesty, to have the head revision still.

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.

General :: How To Determine Exact Version Of Faked Android OS

Oct 22, 2013

I just bought a new new Android smartphone, and electronically and mechanically, it works very well, and gives a nice appearance. It was sold as having Android 4.1.1, and About Phone -> Android version displays 4.1.2. So in this version range, we are talking about Jelly Bean, right?

Software version in the 'About Phone' begins with, '6820_2.3.5_' but whether or not this identifies the OS version, or means something else ...

I'd like to know if there's any way of telling exactly which version of Gingerbread my phone is running? This is useful in deciding which apps should or should not, be installed.

The phone has been rooted, has busybox and a terminal application installed, how to identify the OS that requires this capability.

Android :: Exact Time / Date On Calls / Texts On Ally?

Nov 21, 2010

I couldn't find a thread that addressed this, sorry if it's been asked before!Here is my question: Is there a way to display the EXACT time of a call or text on the Ally and not just have it say 'yesterday' or '2 hours ago', etc. I can't find it in any settings and I can't seem to find an app for it. With my job I have to fill out a very detailed field report requiring exact times I spoke with someone, did something, etc. and I used to use my text messages as a way to keep record of this. If there is a way to do this it could make my life much easier!Disclaimer: After reading several posts here I see that I'm pretty technologically impaired in the span of droid users, so go on and treat me like I don't understand you're computer lingo because you're probably right. No offense will be taken!

Android :: Rectangular Box Around Link In Browser / Exact Code For This In Droid-webkit

Jan 28, 2010

I could display the box around the URL link, but if my URL link spans over more than one line, then my code shows the one rectangle on 1 line. But, in android-browser, in the same case, whole URL (still if it spans over multiple lines) gets surrounded by single large rectangle. I am not getting how this is achieved in android ?

Can anyone please give me some pointer on this ? I could not able to find out exact code for this in android-webkit code.

Android :: Location Manager Minimum Update Time Overridden / When Location Changes?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm developing a mapping app using Eclipse 3.5.I'm setting the minimum update period with the LocationManager's requestLocationUpdates method, via a configuration activity. When I set the property I see in Logcat that the system process sets the value OK.When I actually send a new location from the DDMS emulator control and the location changes on the map view, I see that the system process then sets the minimum time to zero.Below is a capture of the system's log messages. You can see that I'm setting the period to 32 seconds, then 16, then, after I've sent a simulated location change the system sets it to zero.The map responds to location changes to location changes instantly even if they are sent only a couple of seconds apart.

HTC Desire :: Want A Shortcut To Exact Battery Level?

Oct 12, 2010

I was just wandering if there is a shortcut to find the exact battery level on my Desire? I know you can go the 4636 route but thats slightly long winded, and most battery widgets/notification bar icons actually seem to use battery (i have properly tested this!). I know you can go into 'about phone' and do it that way but that just shows it as a series of bars, not as an actual figure.
