Android :: Want To Auto Change Time Zone - Any App?

Apr 14, 2010

I travel each week to Brussels from the UK and don't want to keep switching my current time zone.I have tried setting 'Automatic' in the Time & Date settings but it does not seem to do anything, but maybe this is because I have data disabled (cos I don't have a data pack).Is there an App that will use GPS to automatically alter the time zone setting?

Android :: Calendar Off By 1 Hour - Showing Cancun Time Zone

Oct 26, 2010

My Google Calendar on my Android phone is off by one hour. Although it displays correctly on the website, on my Android phone some of the times are off by 1 hour. When I click into the event, it says (America/Cancun) which I assume means for some reason its displaying Cancun time zone.

HTC Desire :: Have To Confirm Time Zone Every Morning

Sep 20, 2010

Android: 2.2
Network: 3UK
Task killer: None

For some reason on most mornings since I got my Desire some 12 days ago I get a notification stating that the phone has been unable to confirm my time zone. I get an option to confirm my time zone as BST (GMT +1) and the phone is happy again...until the next morning.

My settings have the phone automatically checking the date and time. The greyed-out "choose time zone" option correctly shows GMT +1 / BST. I switch my phone to airplane mode overnight, so that I don't download updates unnecessarily...and don't get my sleep disturbed. Could this be the problem?

The strange thing is that this has not happened every morning, although most mornings it has. But my brother who lives in the same house also has a Desire and he has rarely had this problem. Any ideas?

HTC Incredible :: Time Zone Changes And Outlook Calendar Events

May 6, 2010

I have multiple events (ie birthdays) as all day events. That means that these are set up in Outlook 2007 from 12am to 12pm on selected day. Recently, I went from Central to Eastern time zone. While there, I synced my phone with outlook using HTC Sync and now I have an additional occurrence of the event that goes from 11am to 11pm and spans into the previous day. I thought this would fix itself once the phone was back in the right time zone and was resynced, but it doesn't.

General :: Direct Access To Time Zone Function?

Oct 16, 2013

I've used XDA many times before, normally for specific questions on ARHD ROMs.

I work on a cruise ship and we're continually crossing time zones. Currently, to alter the time zone on my (rooted) HTC OneX, I need to pull down the notifications tray, select settings, scroll down and select date and time, then select time zone. I can't use the Auto function, as the network time on the ship (satellite) is only available over Wi-Fi, for which I have to pay an exorbitant rate.

I'm looking for an app that will allow me one-tap access to changing the time zone. 'Time Zone Widget Light' almost does the job, as a tap on the widget scrolls through pre-set time zones, but this only allows me to step forward, and sometimes I need to go backwards as well (sadly our ship itineraries refuse to follow pre-set time zones, although I'm working on it!)

Any app, or perhaps a toolkit that lets me drill down to sub-layers of the android settings menu and create a short-cut?

HTC EVO 4G :: MMS Received Time Stamp 4 Hours In The Past SMS Correctly?

Sep 22, 2010

I am getting MMS (Pictures) from another Sprint user (both of us are on the east coast) who has a Touch Pro 2 running Windows 6.5 and every time I get an MMS message from him its back stamped 4 hours. So if he sends it at 8pm it gets time stamped at 4pm on my phone. When he sends me an SMS (text message) its is CORRECTLY time stamped at 8pm. This causes my threaded messaging to put his MMS all the way up in the thread. This is UNACCEPTABLE and either SPRINT or HTC should figure out what is going on with time stamps and there phone and software.

Android :: Use Callbacks In Own Code

Feb 25, 2010

Here I update my world to include the canvas size. world.getViewPort().updateViewPortSize(width,height); Is there a better way to do this? Is there a way that I can automatically update my world object without having to manually call it in the setSurfaceSize method but instead call it from My world class? My guess is that I can use some sort of callback, but I don't understand them!

/* Callback invoked when the surface dimensions change. */
public void setSurfaceSize(int width, int height) {
// synchronized to make sure these all change atomically
synchronized (mSurfaceHolder) {
mCanvasWidth = width;
mCanvasHeight = height;
world.getViewPort().updateViewPortSize(width,height); }

Android :: Service With LocationListener Callbacks

Sep 18, 2010

I have an android application. Based on the current geo location of user, I want to fetch some remote data in background and store it. My implementation is: At specific interval a alarm fires up my service. Service uses an anonymous class to query current location and registers a locationListener callback. On call of onLocationChanged() I initiate the remote data fetch from server.

However once my service is done registering the location listener using anonymos class, it returns as expected; as it doesn't wait for callback to happen before finishing. Since callback takes some time and makes a call when service has already returned, it throws an error saying: java.lang.RuntimeException: Handler{43e82510} sending message to a Handler on a dead thread

Which is quite understandable. One quick workaround for me now is that I can use getLastKnownLocation from locationManager as that doesn't respond back by callback; but what if I do want the latest location right now, in a service and not activity? How can I wait for callback to happen and stop my service from returning.
Also, at what point does lastKnownlocation gets updated? Everytime GPS registers a new location; does it update it? What I want to know is that if it's not latest can it still be closed to latest? As I didn't see an option in android emulator to configure the time period between subsequent updates.

Android :: Callbacks With WebView Component?

Sep 17, 2010

I am doing authentication with a third-party site that's supposed to redirect back to my app with auth token (OAUTH).

I have the callback working properly if I open the 3rd party site in a separate browser process via this.startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, uri));

But, if I embed a WebView component in my layout, and open the url in that, the callback does not work. Webview says "You do not have permission to open myapp://callback?token=...." and quickly refreshes to "Web page not available...temporarily down..."

Android :: How To Create Service With Callbacks

Jul 7, 2010

I'm working on a service for my application whose purpose is to allow easy access to various web services we are running. The service is used to maintain a login state across any applications that want to use it so the user only has to log in once when the service is first started.

What is the best way to go about making the service run asynchronously and call back to the application when it is finished. Currently I am using static classes that extend Thread such as


And to make it easy to call


But these functions can only be called by my own application. I want anyone to be able to make a one or two line function call and be able to handle the response easily, preferably in a simple callback method.

I figure it has to be done using Intents to start the Threads, but if I do that I can't pass a callback.

Android :: On Which Thread Callbacks From Sensors Executed?

Aug 17, 2010

We are supposed to make UI actions only from the main UI thread. But it is not clear to me if callbacks like LocationUpdateListener (and other callbacks from sensors) are already in the UI thread or they require special care to access the UI components.

Android :: Anything Similar To IPhone SDK Delegate Callbacks?

Sep 23, 2010

I just switched over from iPhone to Android and am looking for something similar to where in the iPhone SDK, when a class finishes a certain task, it calls delegate methods in objects set as it's delegates.I don't need too many details. I went through the docs and didn't find anything (the closest I got was "broadcast intents" which seem more like iOS notifications).Even if someone can point me to the correct documentation, it would be great.

Android :: Callbacks Occur On Main (UI) Thread?

Oct 12, 2010

There are a lot of Android SDK APIs where callback handlers are registered. For a concrete example, with MediaPlayer you can set an onCompletionListener callback. Will these callbacks be called from the main (UI) thread? If the answer is "it depends", then I'm looking for some general rules for what callbacks will be called from the main thread versus another thread. The SDK documentation doesn't seem to spell it out. (Maybe I missed it) It seems important to know, because if I'm guaranteed main thread callbacks, then I can skip some thread synchronization on data shared between different places in code. If I'm forced to be pessimistic out of ignorance, then I have to write extra synch block code and worry about deadlocks, data integrity, and reduced performance.

Android :: Get Information Of Activity Lifecycle Callbacks In Views Drawn?

I want to get the size of a view that is in my activity but I am not able to get that information in any of the activity lifecycle callbacks (onCreate, onStart, onResume). I'm assuming this is because the views have not been drawn yet. At what point are views drawn and is there a callback I can put my code so I can get the size of the view?

Android :: Call AsyncTask Methods From Another Class - Service - Callbacks?

Jun 1, 2010

I was wondering if it's possible to call specific methods defined within the AsynTask class from another class and/or service ?

In my specific case I have a Service playing some sounds, but the sound is selected from a List with available sounds...

When a sounds is selected it is downloaded from my home server, this takes some time (not much, let's say around the 3-4 seconds, the sounds/effects aren't big in size)...

So my problem at the moment is that I have a service to play those sounds, and when I select one I wanted to show a progressdialog... The way (if I understood correctly) is to use an AsyncTask, but the only thing the AsyncTask will do is telling my Service to play a specific sound from my server... So there is no "callback" from the service to the Asynctask...

How can I call a running AsyncTask, which sits in another class, and tell him all work is done and thus he can stop showing the ProgressDialog ? Or am I over-engineering it and there are other ways ?

Android :: Should Use Listener Interface Or Handler For Event Callbacks In Development

Nov 16, 2010

I'm new to Java, I'm porting over our Windows Phone 7 library to run on Android. Due to syntax similarities this has been very simple so far. Our library is basically an abstracted http message queue that provides data persistence and integrity on mobile platforms. It only provides asynchronous methods which is a design choice. On WP7 I make use of delegates to call the user supplied callback when an async message has been processed and the servers response received.

To achieve the same thing on Android I've found two ways so far - A simple Java listener interface that contains OnSuccess and OnFailure methods that the user must implement, or using the Android handler class which provides a message queue between threads(

I've gone with the Handler at this stage as if I'm honest it is the most similar to a C# delegate. It also seems like less work for a user of our library to implement.

Example of some user code to make use of our library:


Using this the user can create as many different handlers as they'd like, called whatever they'd like, and pass them in as method parameters. Very similar to a delegate...

The reason I'm wondering if I should move to a listener interface is because the more exposure I gain to Java the more it seems that's just how it's done and it's how third parties using our library would expect it to be done.

It's essentially the same process, except each time you wanted to do something different with the server response i.e. You might be fetching different types of data from different endpoints, you're going to have to create a custom class that implements our interface each time, as well as implementing any methods our interface has. Or of course you could have a single monolithic class that all server responses were funneled in to but have fun trying to figure out what to do with each individual response...

Android :: Edit Source Lookup Path - Standard Framework Callbacks

Apr 2, 2010

I am developing on a Mac with Eclipse and have the skeleton for an app that implements the standard framework callbacks (onCreate, onDestroy, onPause, etc.). When I set breakpoints in the callbacks the debugger stops and displays a tab that says
"ActivityThread.performLaunchActivity(ActivityThread $ActivityRecord,Intent)line:2477" and in the tab page body there is some red text that says "Source not found" and a button that says
"Edit Source Lookup Path...". I have tried adding several paths via "Edit Source Lookup Path..." but can't see to find the one Eclipse is looking for.
