Android :: Load Specific Lines Of Code According To OS Version?

Aug 23, 2010

Is there a simple line of code that would allow only loading the code if the OS version meets the requirements? Lets say I have my target OS as 2.2 but the min sdk is 3 for android 1.5 so even if i have some code in my project that isn't compatable with 1.5 it will still compile since the target OS is 2.2. Anyway, I want to ad a feature that requires code that's not in the 1.5 SDK and will cause a crash if it's loaded on a 1.5 phone. Is there a simple thing like this that I can do? So i dont have to make the entire app not available to 1.5 users?

if (Android OS == >2.1){
//Insert code here that requires 2.1 and up}
//insert code that would appear is OS is <2.1}

Android :: Camera Preview - Strange Lines On 1.5 Version Of Sdk

Jan 13, 2010

I am developing the camera module for an android application. In main application when user clicks on 'take picture' button, new view with SurfaceView control is opened and camera preview is shown. When users click on dpad center, camera takes picture and save it to the disc. Pretty simple and straightforward.

Everything works fine on my device - HTC Tattoo, minsdkversion 1.6...but when I tested application on HTC Hero minsdkversion 1.5, when camera preview is shown,some strange lines occur. altough preview is crashed, taking of pictures works fine

Here is the picture:

Android :: Way To Give Out A Device Specific License Free Version?

Jul 27, 2010

I just finished reading the docs on Google's new Android License Verification Library. I often give out free copies of my applications to beta testers. I don't, however, want the beta testers to share the app with their friends. What's the best way to give out a device-specific license free version? From what I can tell I will need to create a custom policy and then maintain a list of authorized devices/accounts in my own backend that I can check. Is that what other devs are doing?

Android :: Way To Install A Specific Version Of Droid On Phone For Testing?

Sep 20, 2010

My boss recently gave me an HTC Wildfire phone for doing an Android version of one of our mobile apps, which is all fine and good, except that the app requires API level 8 (ie Android 2.2), and the phone itself only has Android 2.1 installed. After much googling, I discovered that this phone does support Android 2.2, and carriers will be rolling out updates over the air for this model phone "in the near future". Since I'm not entirely certain what our lazy carrier's definition of "near future" is, it would be nice if I could download images for particular releases and install them on my phone. Coming from the world of the iPhone, it seems that this should be something rather necessary in order to successfully develop an Android app. Yet, it doesn't seem that Google offers any Android OS updates themselves. Have I no choice but to wait for the carrier to release an update?

Android :: Way I Can Load Class Based On SDK Version?

Jun 7, 2010

Is there any way I can load a class based on what version of the OS the phone is running? For example:

I made an app which requires 1.6+ Android. Is there a way for me to load one class or the other based on what OS the phone is running? I'm asking this specifically for contacts. The database was changed from 1.6 to 2.0 and the old version doesn't retrieve contacts on the new OS phone. I'd still like to keep my 1.6 requirement, but at the same time I'd like 2.0+ phones to access the contact part of the app.

So can I make 2 APIs, somehow pack them with the app and decide on the fly which I choose to import?

Android :: Add A View To Specific Layout From Code?

I want to dynamically add some views to a LinearLayout that is already defined in XML.

I'm able to add views to the screen but they are not being placed 'inside' the right LinearLayout.

How can I get a reference to this specific Layout from code, similar to getting a View by using findViewById()?

Android :: Couldn't Find Specific Method / Area Code

Android : How To Download A Specific Release Of Droid Source Code?

Jun 18, 2010

I've never used git before, but I'd like to download the android source code as I'm getting a crash in the 2.2 emulator and I'd like to see exactly where in the android source code it's crashing (so I can file a better bug report). Edit A decent answer would include instructions on using git to download a specific repository. I'm on windows, but have installed Msysgit.

Android :: Code Depending On Version Of API?

Nov 24, 2010

In Android I get the version of the SDK easily (Build.VERSION.SDK) but I need to use LabeledIntent only if the platform is newer than 1.6 (>Build.VERSION_CODES.DONUT) I suppose that Reflection is necessary (I have read this link but it is not clear for a class or to me). This is the code but it gives me an exception because in my Android 1.6, the compiler verifies if the package exists even if the condition is not applied:

Intent theIntent=....;
if(Integer.parseInt(Build.VERSION.SDK) > Build.VERSION_CODES.DONUT)
Intent intentChooser = Intent.createChooser(intent,"Choose between these programs");
Parcelable[] parcelable = new Parcelable[1];
parcelable[0] = new, "", "Texto plano", 0);
intentChooser.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_INITIAL_INTENTS, parcelable);
catch(Exception e)
} else

Android :: Matching SDK Version To Code - NPE Bug In WebView?

Mar 15, 2009

I wrote an app that, among other things, renders feed articles using WebView. Now I get error reports that seem to originate in WebView:

-- NewsRob Version: 1.7.0/170 -- Android Version: sdk=2, release=1.1, inc=128600 -- Thread State: RUNNABLE -- Stacktrace: java.lang.NullPointerException at android.webkit.CacheManager$ at

I've got another report with the same content, but a different incremental version of the sdk (126986). Probably one from the US and one from the UK. So now I would love to know why the code blows up and if there is anything I can do about it. And with the source files and line numbers I felt in good shape to so. If only I could match them to the public code repositories ;-(............................

I had a non-market copy of copilot running fine on my eris when I had 1.5 on it now that I rooted and installed 2.1, when I try to install it it comes up with an invalid library error (copilots code cannot be loaded in the system ). Anyone have a work around other than downloading it from the market? I travel in remote areas sometime and I'm scared that I may be out of data range sometimes with google nav.

Android :: New Sdk Requires Version Code Bump To Install?

Dec 15, 2009

My old development process allowed me to make any change in the java code and use eclipse's Run button to install the updated package to the emulator.

Now I get [2009-12-15 11:51:55 - Scoopful]Application already deployed. No need to reinstall. even though the code has changed.

I realize the manifest version Code is used to determine if the app has changed and it works fine if I bump up that number. This did not used to be necessary and it slows down development when I have to enter AndroidManifest and make a change with every deploy to the emulator. Is there a way around this?

Android :: Releasing Demo Application From Paid Version - Fork Code?

Jun 4, 2009

We have a paid app in the market place, we would like to release a demo of the paid app. I was hoping we could just recompile w/ the same package name, but apparently that does not work. I have tried manually changing package name etc, but it is a chore, and it seems that several things that automatically happen in eclipse cause more harm than good when renaming the package name. Which brings me to my next question. If having a new package name is the only way to accomplish this. Is there an easy way to fork the paid app, where keeping the changes synchronized is easier? Some kind of Source Control?

Android :: Particular Version Of Droid Source Code / Unable To Install Apps With Native

I've synced my android repository just after android sdk 1.6 announced, but found some problem to install my apps with native code (so built by NDK 1.5_r1) then.

I tried to build NDK with the latest source code, bu unfortunately, faile again :( .

So is there any way to get particular version of android source code? for example the android-1.5r3 tag. Would be great if some command like "svn switch /foo/bar/1.5r3" is available.
