HTC Desire :: Use Optical Trackpad To Move Cursor When Writing Text?

Aug 5, 2010

Can you use the optical trackpad to move the cursor when writing text? So if you realise you've gone wrong you don't have to place your finger in-between two letters. On my existing very old touch scree phone this is a big issue as i can never get the cursor exactly where i want Another trackpad question - what purpose does it have when browsing, does it highlight links allowing quick navigation without using the pinch and zoom?

Final track pad question- do you use it? The battery- with moderate to heavy use will it ALWAYS last a long day 7-11 for example? Hows the froyo update, is sense still as smooth as ever?

HTC Desire :: Optical Trackpad Cursor Jumps More Lines

Apr 26, 2010

Does anyone have problems using the optical trackpad to edit text? If I'm (for example) writing a SMS and then want to navigate back though the text to correct a typo, I find it very difficult to get the cursor to the required position. Sometimes it seems too sensitive and jumps more lines / positions than I want; and sometimes it seems not sensitive enough! Is it just me, or do others have problems using the trackpad?

HTC Desire :: Unresponsive Optical Trackpad

Jul 29, 2010

The trackpad in my desire is a bit "leggy". I don't know if this is normal but in menus it only moves 1 tile at a time even if I drag all my finger over it. I have seen blackberry trackpads and they are supper smooth Sometimes when editing text I have to move it 3-5 times to get to the right position.

Motorola Droid :: Software Keyboard - Move Cursor Around Text

Nov 12, 2010

I use the hardware keyboard exclusively, but am wanting to use the software keyboard more, figuring that my next phone may only have that. My real problem is figuring out how to move the cursor around in the text. If I want to go back and edit using the hardware keyboard, I just use the d-pad to move back to the spot I need. How do I do that with the software keyboard? Am I forced to tap the screen (which never chooses where I want it, and I have to key pecking at it to get it in the right place)?

HTC Hero :: Arrow Keys On Keyboard To Move Cursor Around In A Text Entry Box

Sep 6, 2009

I can't see any arrow keys on the keyboard to move the cursor around in a text entry box. So, when I want to correct a typing mistake I have to stab my finger somewhere to the right of the error then backspace over the error (usually deleting a few correct characters in the process) before retyping. There must be a better way.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Move Phone Cursor To Different Locations In Text Editing?

Sep 1, 2010

Has anyone found an easy, reliable way to reposition the cursor so that you can modify text you've already written? The only suggestion I was given was to "swipe" the cursor over to where I wanted it, which turns into a series of moves that have the cursor jumping all over the place. Are there no equivalents to the "cursor arrows" that let you move the cursor up, right & left?

Does anyone have a better way?

HTC Incredible :: Lockbot App - Unlock With The Optical Trackpad Button - Apply Nexus One Swipe Unlock

Apr 28, 2010

I was curious about this myself, and i have seen numerous post about this on the forums complaining about having to unlock with the top button

I searched about nexus since it is similar and saw a few things about the app LOCKBOT, i recommend you atleast try the free version and see, it gives you unlock with the trackpad button and the ability to do custom lockscreen with different styles like Iphone, and different android locks. THis was one grip i didnt like about sense. Stock Android has the ability to swipe to unlock or swipe the other way to mute sounds, which is a nice feature, although i prefer my iphones switch the best

The bad...Ive read stuff about it crashing and being laggy, now i havnt experiended this on the INC, it runs super smooth. But i have been having a few times where the front button will not unlock the phone, maybe an update will fix this or something, but its worth a shot to look at.

Android :: Is It Worth Writing A ContentProvider - Using Cursor Adapter?

Sep 14, 2010

We are connecting to a number of WebServices and fetching a lot of structured data(XML). We are parsing this data and storing them into SQLite tables. This part of the application runs periodically in the back ground.

On the foreground, the data fetched is displayed in ListViews. We have used ArrayAdapter to back these lists up. The thing is, every time the Actvity starts or data set is refreshed, we have to load the ArrayLists by querying the database and call notifyDataSetChanged() on the Adapter. This slows down the application and affects the User experience.

Question: 1. I'd imagine using a CursorAdapter might result in performance gain, since the framework will take care of managing the cursor. Is this assumption valid? 2. Will the CursorAdapter take care of reflecting updates to the database on the screen automatically? 3. Will I have to write a ContentProvider if I choose to use CursorAdapters? 4. Are there any other considerations that we need to make?

HTC Desire :: Is It Possible To Disable Optical Trackball?

May 23, 2010

I have used my HTC desire for a month now and I am very pleased with this ultimate android phone.I have only one issue with the phone/system though. The optical trackball is hyper sensitive. Whenever I use the phone ouside and the sun is shining, then the track ball activates due to the light and the phone/system uses the input to always scroll to the right. This is pretty annoying because this means that I cannot use the phone outside. Resently I also discovered that a small lamp next to my couch can activate the trackball as well.Does anyone know if its possible to disable the optical trackball or am I the only one who has this problem? If so then maybe it's a hardware error and I will try to return the phone.As a temporarily solution I have placed a sticker on top of the track ball.
