Android :: Eclipse Layout Editor Not Showing

Oct 29, 2009

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?

System config is MacOSX with default JDK 1.5.0_16. Eclipse 3.4 The problem is I have a project in workspace that has been developed under JDK 1.6.I don't really want to switch back to 1.5 ( i' would have to clean up a LOT of @Override ) but if i work with this project, after couple of rebuilds - eclipse layout editor not able to display preview. 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.

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 com.android.ide.eclipse.adt.feature.group
Eclipse IDE for Java Developers epp.package.java
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 :: Scroll The Layout Editor In ADT Eclipse Plug In

May 11, 2010

Has anyone figured out how to scroll the contents of the Layout Editor when those contents overflow one "screen"? I'm talking about at design-time while using the ADT Layout Editor, not scrolling at run-time on a physical device (that works fine).

Android : Visual Editor For Eclipse With ADT Plugin?

Sep 26, 2010

I thought ADT should come with a visual editor for building GUI : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/851882/easy-way-to-build-android-ui However, I just cannot find it. I was wondering where is the Visual Editor for Eclipse with the ADT plugin. I can run HelloWorld application without problem. However, whenever I click on main.xml at the left navigation tree layout folder, here is what I get. What I wish to get is a WYSIWYG editor.

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?

Android :: Eclipse Emulator - Runs WVGA (hdpi) As Mdpi Screen

Jul 22, 2010

The problem I am having is that when I run a FWVGA or WVGA sized emulator it sometimes runs at a MDPI size instead of HDPI. Here is an example with pictures. I create the AVD with the proper hw.lcd.density setting and screen size and it randomly does this. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. I used to be able to just delete the AVD and create it over again and it would fix itself for a while but now it's getting worse.

Android : Disable Java Formatting In Eclipse Editor?

Jul 17, 2010

Is there a (simple) way to completely and utterly disable all Java formatting in the Eclipse editor?

That is an Eclipse question, but I appreciate your indulgence because this problem is slowly driving me insane. I am spending a lot of time fixing code to make it look good again after it gets mangled by the automatic formatting. I thought I had removed all formatting keyboard shortcuts, but I missed something because my code keeps getting changed. I suspect the culprit to be the SourceFormat menu option because that can be triggered by Alt-S-F which is very close to Alt-F- S, the File/Save command.

So a little finger slip and code mangled. Unfortunately, the mangling is not always done where I am looking (since it is applied to the entire file), so I don't always know to undo it. Is it possible to disable or remove a menu item?

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 :: Get Layout Tab To Work In Eclipse For Layout Xml Files?

Sep 3, 2009

I am using eclipse 3.5 with the ADT plugin.when I view layout xml files, i get two tabs in the view the source code view and a graphical view.the graphical view almost never works for any of my layouts.it usually shows "NullPointerException: null" at the top and nothing else. when it does work, it often does not match what i get in the simulator or device.it seems like this thing simply is not ready for prime time; although the idea is very cool.has anyone else had much success with it?

Android :: Application In Emulator Without Restarting Emulator In Eclipse?

Apr 8, 2009

Is there a way to reload an Android application in the emulator without closing the emulator, saving any code changes, and running the emulator again? If I make even a simple change to the layout, it takes about 30 seconds by time I run it in Eclipse and Android "boots", and I can unlock the emulator to run the application. Is there any way to shorten this time when making changes, or is it something I just have to deal with?

Android :: Out Of Memory Exceptions And Difference Between Emulator And Hardware - Dev Phone

Jun 23, 2009

I have read a couple of threads about Bitmap creation and release using "recycle()" but still have a problem with an OOM when running my app (that creates bitmaps) on hardware - the dev phone 1 in this case. Multiple passes through my application screens work fine in the emulator but performing the same actions on the device results in an OOM exception almost immediately. At this point I would really like a deterministic way to replicate the scenario on the emulator which I thought should be possible by limiting its memory (though I did read somewhere that the emulator and the dev phone 1 have the same default memory so this should be moot but whatever) i.e. -memory 64, but I am having zero success. Am I using the correct emulator args to limit the memory and/or what is the strategy for making the emulator exactly the same as the device at least with respect to memory constraints/pressure?

Android :: Difference On Emulator Versus Actual G1 Phone For Method GlDrawTexiOES

Apr 5, 2009

I have a problem drawing a background for my OpenGL app on the emulator. It all works well on an actual G1, but i'm worried that if the emulator has a problem, other android phones may have the same problem. On an actual G1 the background is drawn on the background. All other drawing is drawn in front of it. On the emulator, the background is always drawn on the foreground, obsuring any other drawing. Here are two screenshots, where i have my background only occupying half of the screen: From emulato. Code...
