How To Measure Little Time Intervals

Sep 17, 2012

I would like to make an app that measures little time intervals (nanoseconds) so I need to know about time resolution and precision regarding such measures with an Android device.

In other words:

- Is it feasible to get reliable values of the current time with nanosecond resolution?
- If so, is feasible to measure such little time interavals? I mean, is there any way to tell the app/OS to focus on measuring the time interval specified in the current thread instead of allowing other processes to make the measuring task not precise?

I've tried to measure the time between the execution of two different lines in code but the results are not always the same, somehow random, then I suppose Dalvik and its process management is causing this to be unreliable and random. What I need to do is to measure distances by getting transmission and reception of audio tones of 16-20 KHz (done in [1] with iOS), thus needing resolution and precision.

Android :: How To Measure Elapsed Time Without Current Time Milli's?

Jul 12, 2009

I want to develop a game, so I need to know elapsed time at lots places in my game. For example, to measuring FPS. I see there is some example use "System.currentTimeMillis" to measure elapsed time. But I see the warning on document: "This method shouldn't be used for measuring timeouts or other elapsed time measurements, as changing the system time can affect the results." So, if this method should not be used for measuring elapsed time, then what will be suitable?

Android :: Sample Sync Adapter Demo Code - Intervals For Instructions

Aug 11, 2010

I've read through the SampleSyncAdapter project

The main entry point for the SampleSyncAdapter appears to be the onPerformSync(...) method. In the documentation page for the sample, it mentions that "[onPerformSync]...gets called whenever the sync manager issues a sync operation for that sync adapter." Who is this 'sync manager', and at what intervals will it instruct the sync adapter to onPerformSync()?

Android :: Measure Widgets Before Display?

Nov 10, 2009

I need to find out how wide a button with particular text will be before displaying a layout. Is this a valid way of doing it behind the scenes?I have other UI components that have to all be the same width in my layout, as whatever this one button is (the other widgets are placed all over the UI and I can't use any other layout methods to force them to be the same size).So I thought I could create this temporary layout, add my fake button, measure it to get its width, then use that value on all other controls. Right now I'm doing the same thing only in onWindowFocus(), but this happens after the layout has been displayed once, which I'd like to avoid.

Android :: Measure Data Roaming Traffic

Aug 3, 2010

Just back from a very nice vacation in Iceland, and await the data roaming bill from my phone company. I hope for the best having limited my traffic as much as possible, but I want to know in advance. I used the very nice app NetCounter but it didn't measure roaming data traffic at all.So I want to build my own app measuring just roaming data traffic. I have a few booleans to start with ( NetworkInfo.IsRoaming() & TelephonyManager. isNetworkRoaming() ), but I'm not sure how to measure the traffic if true.So the question is: How do I measure data traffic while roaming? (Something like API level 8 TrafficStats functionality is what I'm after, but for API level 3). The used SmartPhone is Samsung Galaxy i7500 (Android 1.6)

Android :: Adjusting Font Size To Fit / Paint Measure Text Returns Too Small Value

Oct 31, 2010

I'm using the FontFitTextView that was posted in this other thread, but it isn't working exactly right for me. The measureText() call is returning a number that is obviously too small to display the string. When it runs through to find a font size that will allow the text to fit, the font size it settles on is still too big. I feel like there is some other kind of padding or margin or some other invisible that is contributing the math that makes up the width which is causing the discrepancy.For example I want to set the text of my FontFitTextView to be "10,000.25".The width of my FontFitTextView is 96 pixels, with 8px padding on both sides, so my available width is 80 pixels. The call to measureText() says that the text "10,000.25" is 64 pixels wide. This means that the current font size should be small enough to display the entire string. However, when the string is actually drawn on the TextView the last 2 characters are chopped off and all I see is "10,000." instead of "10,000.25"
