Android :: Explanation Of ADT Layout Editor UI?

Apr 13, 2009

Is there an explanation of the ADT layout editor UI some place? I can't find anything on the Android web site about it. When I look at a layout in the design view, there are a number of fields at the top with labels like MCC, MNC, Lang, etc. I've noticed that I can change the contents of these fields, such as orientation, and it has an effect on the view. But a yellow warning triangle appears next to the field I've changed and the next time I open this view I see the unmodified field. For example, if I change to landscape orientation the view goes back to default next time. Is there documentation some place on what these fields mean and how they are supposed to be used?

Relative noob working with Eclipse and Android.I just switched from Windows XP to Mac (Snow Leopard) and I'm having a little trouble getting Eclipse up and running the way I like it.I installed the Android Mac SDK, but my layout editor isn't showing me a preview of the activity layout, it's just showing me the XML tree, even when I'm on the design tab.Is there something I need to do to enable the layout editor in eclipse?

Work around i found so far open android project that is in compliance with Java 1.5. Close everything else and rebuild workspace. But it's kind of annoying to do it every time.

Android :: AutoCompleteTextView In Eclipse Layout Editor?

May 28, 2009

I'm porting an app of mine to work better with API 1.5, and I'm having problems with the layout files where I'm using an AutoCompleteTextView (and, naturally, MultiAutoCompleteTextView). Whenever I have them present in a layout, the graphical representation of the layout disappears, and "NullPointerException: null" replaces it. Is there any way I can view a widget such as this in the Eclipse editor? It definitely worked in the 1.1 SDK, otherwise I wouldn't have used them.

Android :: ClassCastException From Layout Editor In Eclipse's ADT Plugin

Aug 8, 2010

This is probably related to this question. I want to know if anyone else gets the same error as me and if there is a way to get around this. I did the following: Followed the instructions from this page. From the top, go to File -> Create a new project -> Android Project -> Create project from existing sample. Checked Android 2.2. From the drop-down menu picked SkeletonApp. Clicked finish. From the package explorer, went to SkeletonActivity -> res -> layout -> skeleton_activity.xml. In the tabs at the bottom of the editor area (editor area is the center of the screen) clicked on Layout. Then I got the error "ClassCastException: android.widget.EditText cannot be cast to andoid.text.ViewGroup". The full text of the error message is given below.

java.lang.ClassCastException: android.widget.EditText cannot be cast to android.view.ViewGroup

Android :: Eclipse Crashes When Invoke Layout Editor

Feb 27, 2010

I'm new to Android & Eclipse. I've downloaded Eclipse and the Android ADT and created an ultra-simple "Hello World" app (has only auto-generated .java and .xml files). Eclipse CRASHES (closes after a very brief pause) when I do the following: In Package Explorer, select AppName/res/layout/main.xml Press, or double-click, or 'Open With' then 'Android Layout Editor' (The app runs OK in the Android emulator) My configuration is:

Android Development Tools 0.9.5.v200911191123-20404
Eclipse IDE for Java Developers
Windows XP

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or what's wrong with my configuration? Any suggestions on what to check? For any non-trivial app development I need to be able to use the Layout Editor. More ... I can select main.xml and Right-Click and 'Open With' any of: XML Editor, XML Schema Editor, Text Editor -- with no problem. The problem is limited to Android Layout Editor.

Android :: ADT Plug In Layout Editor - Additional Device Configurations?

Sep 11, 2010

You know that layout editor in the Android ADT plugin that lets you design the layout for ADP1, ADP2 and Nexus One, has anyone created other device configurations? It requires device information such as the x-dpi and y-dpi, which can be difficult to find out. I'm just wondering if anybody has added more device configurations they're willing to share? Perhaps together we could compile a huge devices.xml containing many of the devices out there. I'm fully aware the layout editor has many faults and cannot be relied upon but it is sometimes useful to rapidly preview how the layout might look on a wide variety of devices without switching between emulators.

Android :: View A TabWidget In Layout Editor It Crashes - Buggy

Jun 6, 2010

It seems that Android is very buggy compared not only to the iPhone, but to pretty much any other software. It's not just minor bugs either - pretty much every developer will come across many serious bugs. Some examples:

- When you run the "sdk setup.exe", the very first thing that happens is that it informs you that it can't connect using https, so you have to change the options to use 'http' instead. This appears to be a bug in the .exe rather than any kind of user issue because the https url works fine in the browser and this error seems to affect everyone. Sure, it's trivial to work around (just do a google search and you figure it out in 5 seconds), but the user shouldn't have to do that. It makes it look unprofessional.

- When you view a TabWidget in the layout editor it crashes.

- Every time you run an app in the emulator, it starts off with the screen locked so you need to press the Menu key.

- Various socket bugs (or perhaps all the same bug) related to IOException not happening. Even something as simple as just trying to connect to a remote host that is not listening will cause it to hang instead of immediately returning an error.

All of these bugs have been logged for months (some by me, some by other people) with no indication of any fix.

At the moment I'm just using the emulator, but I'm wondering if the phones themselves are this buggy or if all the bugs are just in the development environment and emulator.

Android :: Preferences Use Explanation - Recommended Best Practice?

Oct 6, 2010

Some of my app's preferences could use some more explanation than the scarce space available for the summary. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be support from the system, like an optional help button that shows a longer text. How do you solve this problem? The first thing that comes to mind is an additional custom "preference" like "more information to above entry" that opens an AlertDialog with the help text, but that's not really nice for both user (two entries for the same preference) and the developer (manual work to do in Preference Activity). A bit nicer for the user, but way more work for the developer would be custom dialogs for each preference with more text and/or a help button. Is there a better solution or even an officially recommended best practice?

Android :: Editor Application - Log In A File?

Jul 24, 2010

I'm developing an image editor application for Android. I have a big problem: I haven't a mobile with Android. I found a person that helps me to test the application and I found many problems. The application works in the emulator perfectly but in the mobile the application constantly mistakenly ends. I want to print a log similar that the show in ddms in a file on the SDCard. I did it with a FileWriter but it isn't the same that I can see in ddms.

Is it possible to show the same output as ddms in a file?

If not possible I would like to get as much information as possible. The person who has the mobile don't have knowledge of programming and I have not got close.

Android :: Application Of Image Editor Not Executing

Apr 19, 2010

I am devoloping an application of image editor. I always do it by using the resources in the drawable carpet. Now I changed it to use the resources in the SD card. I don't change the code of the image access but the program always produce an error if I intent to set the value of a pixel. The program works correctly if I try to read the pixel but if I try to modify it fails. I think this is a permissions error but I added the following: <uses-permission android:name=""></ uses-permission> <uses-permission android:name=""></ uses-permission> And everything remains exactly the same. I'm desperate. A thing happens is that if I try to do the scaling or rotating the image using a matrix postrotate, etc, the program works correctly and as of this moment I can use the SetPixel without causing error.
