Android :: Instance-specific AppWidget Configuration

Sep 3, 2010

Say that there is an App Widget that shows a configuration Activity when placed. The configuration page allows adjusting the appearance of the widget.

The user may place multiple instances of this widget on their home screen. What would be the best way to maintain the unique configuration states on each of the widget instances? Or would each widget instance have to adopt the same global state?

Android :: AppWidget Configuration Activity Required?

Apr 15, 2009

I'm playing around with the new AppWidget API, I get the impression from the docs that I don't need an android:configuration attribute in my AppWidgetProviderInfo xml resource. Curiously though, when I try to add my AppWidget to the home screen, I just get a black textview that reads "Problem loading widget".

Android : MediaPlayer Instance Seems To Crash My Emulator During Configuration

Apr 25, 2010

I'm and android beginner, so go easy on me. I'm trying to play a sequence of video files which I'm downloading from a server. The challenge is that I want to have a smooth transition from one file to another.

My thought is to have two MediaPlayer instances each preparing and then playing in turn. It is not clear to me if they can both share the same SurfaceView?
Or maybe, I should be using different views and swapping between them? Or, the idea is a bad idea all together?

When I try to run configure the MediaPlayer instance with a view that isn't visible it seems to crash my emulator.

General :: Disable Specific App Permission For Specific Or All Apps

Mar 12, 2014

I have had androids for over two years now and am getting more and more concerned every time I download an app and seeing that it wants to READ my SMS message and Contacts.

Is there a way I can disable reading of SMS messages or any one of the other permissions by specific apps, or all apps?

Are we living in a world where any "joe schmo" can upload an app the to the app store and wait for those inadvertent downloads and collect all your personal information, and that's after all the time we spend protecting our identity and personal details?

Android :: AppWidget Changes Id After Reboot

Dec 31, 2009

I have a strange problem, on a few devices. I have developed an AppWidget, and it uses a database to store the configuration for each instance of the widget. The widget id is the key in the database.Everything works on most devices, but I got a bug report a couple of days ago. A user said that the widget never worked after reboot. The user who was very helpful sent me a log from his phone, and I could then see that the widget got a new id each time he did a reboot.

Android :: Trying To Update An AppWidget Manually

Sep 7, 2010

I am trying to update an AppWidget manually when a user setting changes on the device.I can tell that my AppWidget onUpdate method is being called as a result since I log some debug strings to logcat in the code. However the AppWidget itself doesn't change on the screen.Here comes the interesting part: if I rotate my device and force a refresh of the home screen (from PORTRAIT to LANDSCAPE or vice-versa) then finally my AppWidget gets updated. However rotating the device does not trigger the onUpdate method to be called, so the AppWidget must be using the RemoteViews provided in the earlier update. Can somebody explain me what to do to force the home screen redraw of my AppWidget when it processes an update?

Android :: What Is Sprint Hero AppWidget?

Nov 4, 2009

I wrote a widget that has been working fine for most folks. However, I started getting bug reports about how the widget would be blank on reboot (not receive an update?), and it seemed that the Sprint Hero continually came up. I thought I was crazy but I'm finding that other people are having the same problems:Searching Google for "sprint hero appwidget problems" yields:"Added warning about the problem on the Sprint Hero device: On the Sprint Hero (HTC ROM v1.29.xxx) the AppWidget API is broken in such a way that it won't."I e-mailed the author in hopes of getting an answer, but I haven't received any response. Does anybody with a Sprint Hero know what the problem is?

For Ex- I need to load two dial png's based on AM or PM.

Android :: Do Network Operations In Appwidget?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm developing a Android AppWidget for my application. For updating my appwidget I need to download data from network. But when I try to do that in onUpdate method, my appWidget is killed by Android system. I learnt that time consuming operations can't be done in receivers so I launched a service from onUpdate method and launched a thread from that. But still the problem persists.
Can anyone please let me know how to do network operations in Appwidget?

Android :: Way To Get User Input In An AppWidget

Apr 15, 2009

I've been looking at the new 1.5_pre SDK today, and the new AppWidget API in particular. I was hoping to write a widget for posting to Twitter as part of my nanoTweeter app. The interface I had in mind would look very similar to the Google Search widget, with an EditText and a submit Button, but as far as I can see there's no way to get at user input in a RemoteViews. Is that right, or am I overlooking something?

Android :: Getting Preferences In AppWidget Provider

Apr 30, 2010

I seem to be having trouble reading preferences from my AppWidgetProvider class. My code works in an Activity, but it does not in an AppWidgetProvider. Here is the code I am using to read back a boolean:

SharedPreferences settings = getSharedPreferences(PREFS_NAME, 0);
boolean autoreplyon = settings.getBoolean("autoreplyon", false);

However, I get the "The method getSharedPreferences(String, int) is undefined for the type widget" error (widget is the name of my AppWidgetProvider class).

Is it possible to receive SMS message on appWidget?

I saw android sample source(API Demos).

In API Demos, ExampleAppWidgetProvider class extends AppWidgetProvider, not Activity.

So, I guess it is impossible to regist SMS Receiver like this code...

My goal is to receive SMS message on my custom appWidget.

Android :: Put An AppWidget On Lock Screen?

May 29, 2009

The documentation hints that: "...the lock screen could also contain widgets, and it would have a different way of adding, removing and otherwise managing widgets." [1]

Now that I have 1.5, I can see the lock screen changed to show the same background as the home screen. Is there a way to put AppWidgets on the lock screen in 1.5?

Android :: Appwidget With Fast Updating Needed

Feb 15, 2010

I would need a fast updating (minimum 5 frames/second) appwidget which can be on the desktop all the time (like the cpu usage or other things mostly measurement gauges).The appwidget is not a "must" but I've found it easy to configure for any customer so the management is easy and I need those gauges to be shown like an appwidget on the desktop.The only problem is the update speed - I've seen that appwidget is not really thought for my needs. In my case it's not about phones, the small unit will always have power supply so draining the battery is not an issue. I could tweak the 30 minute update time but it doesn't helps too much - the appwidget framework is simply too slow with all that serialization and would eat too much CPU. What other solutions can be used? I've seen that a system service (LoadAverageService for example) would do the job but that one is not really configurable, has to be compiled into Android so I kinda don't like it. The same is valid with custom app screens or any other solution which needs an custom Android build. So this is a last solution if nothing else works.

A good solution could be if the Appwidget framework would accept other views than the enlisted ones (AnalogClock, Button, Imageview, etc.) and the update would be done internally in the widget, not through the appwidget serialization chanels.

Android :: AppWidget Updating ImageView With Drawables?

Nov 7, 2010

I'm trying to create an appwidget with a customizable background. I use a NinePatchDrawable and I would like to change it's color (using the setColorFilter method). This is no problem in an Activity, but it does dot seem possible with the RemoteView object used for appwidgets.Is there some way to get an ImageView in an appwidget to be updated with a new Drawable, not a Bitmap?Or if not, perhaps it's possible to get the actual size of the appwidget and convert / save the colored NinePatchDrawable to a Bitmap and then update the ImageView with that?I already searched quite a bit for a solution, but haven't found anything so far. I hope it's not impossible.
