Requests

Hey everyone,

I’ve decided to designate this page for you guys! As the number of ideas I have for potential code snippets / tutorials is finite, and what may have been a challenge for me may not have been for you and vice versa, if you would like to see an example of something posted, or would like to see a well-written and detailed tutorial on something, then please leave a request (in the form of a comment) and I’ll do my best to address it in a timely manner!

Thanks everyone! Hope to see this page filled up.

      Hey warrior,

      What do you mean by “opening the address book”? Do you mean retrieving contacts?

        Hi Jwei,
        Yup,meant retrieving the contacts but that is fine now:)
        Have got an other issue:
        I have my own customized address book application with different fields and of the the Contact Name,Contact Number are retrieved from the contact provider and there are other text views in my application.
        So my issue:
        1)How do i get a notify when the contents in the address book change
        2) how can i maintain the consistency of my data with the data from address book
        Eg: Name No Myaddress MyNotes
        Abcd 123 gggg,U.S This is my note
        so how do i associate my data with the data from address book
        Can u give me a snippet for this?

        Thanks in advance

    Hi Jwei,
    Got an other request..!!Hope u’l help me solve this one
    Actually i can you help me out to create a Broadcaster which broadcast’s my custom string message and a broadcast receiver which recieves this message and displays that message
    thank you

    • February 1, 2010 3:04 am

      Why do you need a broadcast receiver? It seems like you just need to pass intents between Activities/Services in this example…

    Hey Jwei, I was wondering if you could help me. I’ve been struggling with 2 problems for a while now, both related to the Autocomplete View that Android provides.

    Firstly, I have managed to get it to successfully return Contacts, but on smaller screens (QVGA), the results are displaced to being behind the Editbox View.

    Secondly, I want to be able to send an SMS to the selected Contact. But I do not know how to pass the value from the cursor to the SendSMS feature.

    I have only just started out learning this stuff really, and will hopefully figure it out eventually anyway, but any help at all would be much appreciated ^^

    Thanks, Carl

    Hey Jwei,

    I am trying to make it so that an activity is launched at a certain time. The Activity is basically retrieving information from the DB and carrying out a task with it. I could only find Alarm Manager to do this. Will it be able to do the job fine? Or, can the Alarm Manager perhaps hold the information that I want to work with as opposed to the DB?

    Thanks, Carl

    Hey Jwei,

    I need to provide a kind of ‘time from now’ selection view. At the moment I’m using the ‘TimePicker’ dialog, but it has the clock at the top with the time (which I don’t want), and it’s limited to 23 hours, when I want to be limited to 99. Any ideas?

    ive followed your post about Custom CursorAdapters.
    could you add example on how to treat a case of having checkboxes in the list’s item
    .
    how to add listeners to it?

    since this specific issue is realy buggy, i though mybe you could show some nice way how to capture a checkbox which has been checked with the support of the CursorAdapters

    please help me…

    sory for my english
    Regard.

    • April 6, 2010 3:05 pm

      Hey eckops,

      To answer 1) you want to look at:

      http://thinkandroid.wordpress.com/2010/01/13/writing-your-own-contentprovider/

      Specifically the onCreate() method. You’ll need to be somewhat familiar with the language SQL, but basically text is stored as a VARCHAR type typically, and images are stored as BLOB types (if this isn’t clear you’ll want to google SQL and familiarize yourself with the language)

      To answer 2), to retrieve records and show as a layout you’ll want to reference

      http://thinkandroid.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/custom-cursoradapters/

      which will tell you how to write a cursor that references a database and then pulls everything out into a customizable layout.

      And before I answer question 3), you’ll need to make sure you understand the steps in making 1) and 2) possible…. otherwise my answer for 3) won’t mean anything to you.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I want to implement an easy app which retrieves time-tables for buses from a html website.

    http://busspur02.aseag.de/bs.exe?Cmd=RV&Karten=true&DatumT=8&DatumM=4&DatumJ=2010&ZeitH=&ZeitM=&Suchen=%28S%29uchen&GT0=&HT0=&GT1=&HT1=

    You enter the station FROM and TO and you’ll get the next times….
    How can I use the fields and return the results to the user?

    • April 8, 2010 10:52 am

      Hey Jayomat,

      All I can say is look carefully at what happens when you enter something in the fields on the website and click submit – does the website make a GET request? Does it make a POST request with various parameters that probably include the stations you put into the fields? Check the URL – does the URL contain the information that you want and in which case you could manually construct the URL, at which point you can use:

      http://thinkandroid.wordpress.com/2010/01/05/using-xpath-and-html-cleaner-to-parse-html-xml/

      To get the information you want?

      That’s all I can really say without basically writing your program for you. Hope this helps.

      – jwei

      • April 8, 2010 11:20 am

        Thank you!

        Ok, I understand what you want to point out.. just one more thing… after entering the data, the site shows a page like this: hen&T1=A&HT1=Karlsgraben&DatumT=8&DatumM=4&DatumJ=2010&AbfAnk=Abf&ZeitH=21&ZeitM=15&Intervall=60&Suchen=%28S%29uchen

    I read your post on “Custom Intents and Broadcasting with Receivers” and it was a great eye opener as to how to deal with intercepting calls between applications. The main thing I’m trying to do is create a default Receiver for opening .p7b files (these are what is left when you currently try to open an s/mime encrypted email.

    Ignoring all the encryption/decryption issues. I can’t for the life of me get my Receiver to actually catch the intent from the email client. I’ve even tried using a global intent-filter of just “android.intent.action.VIEW” with no other filtering, and it won’t catch it.

    Are there different intents being fired when trying to open attachments from the default email client?

    In my LogCat it clearly states its doing a VIEW call –
    INFO/ActivityManager(60): Starting activity: Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW dat=content://com.android.email.attachmentprovider/1/11/RAW flg=0x80001 }

    Any help, or explanation on why this would be different from the other broadcasts, or why I’m misinterpreting this would be great.

    P.S. I’ve tried filtering by mime type as well, with no luck. So I’m guessing it’s a different broadcast call that I don’t have access to?

    Hey there. Just found this blog and its pretty awesome.

    I’m struggling to write my own SimpleCursoTreeAdapter. The gist is that I want to do some custom formatting on the values I display in my child view list. The trick though is that I can’t use a viewBinder because I’m trying to support API level 4 and up and the SimpleCursorTreeAdapter only supports viewbinders from API Level 5.

    I basically want to intercept where the group and child view is created and customise the display. I would give my first born for advice or help. Thanks

    I am currently trying to learn Java through Eclipse so that I may develop an application for my mobile phone that will, on click, send a file from my phone’s sd card to an ip address. I don’t need to read anything back from the device that I am sending the file to, but I would like for the user to be able to configure the ip address and port. There will be 4 files, 4 buttons, and it is “as easy as that”.

    I am looking for a nudge in the right direction to be able to learn how to create an activity where when the button is pressed, it will send the file specified for the respective button, and to send it to the ip address and port value designated by the application user.

    I’ve used app inventor, but they do not seem to have a networking module, so I have deferred to Eclipse. Though more difficult, I am done with the interface, and now need to work on the activity of click, attatch and send.

    Can you advise?

    How about Augmented Reality on Android? Any starting code snippets would help a lot.

    Hi,
    I need to communicate between two android devices through wireless. I just need to send string. How can I do that?

    • March 13, 2012 10:18 am

      Hey Ali,

      It’s not that simple – you’ll most likely need to use some kind of socket programming to connect two phones, at which point you’re free to send strings to and from each phone. Otherwise you’ll have to rely on an external server that can issue HTTP requests to the phones. Hope that makes sense.

    Hi, thanks for your articles, they have been very helpful…

    I would like to know if you can help me understand some concepts. I’m new to Android, but I have worked with java a lot.

    Still, I need help with the UI. Is there a guide to create UIs that can be used in different screen sizes. It have been hard to find naming conventions examples and AVD’s for large screen sizes.

    hi…can i have a remember me login function for example?

    • July 9, 2012 7:11 pm

      Hi Kuek,

      Do you simply mean an example with a check box that says remember me? If so, this should be relatively simple.

      All you would need is a check box with an onCheckListener, that if checked and submit is clicked, caches the user’s login information somewhere (i.e. through SharedPreferences or SD cards etc).

      Is this what you meant / does this suffice? If you’re still confused I can definitely make a quick tutorial.

    Can you post an example of how to grant a URI read only permission to a custom content provider using an intent?

  52. August 1, 2012 5:18 pm

    Could you possibly show an example of lazy loading images into a custom cursor adapter, within a listfragment?

    Hi! Thanks for all your tutorial!
    May I ask if it’s possible to make a tutorial on how to implement a circle progress bar at the bottom of a listview when you scroll down to load more? Thanks!

    • October 2, 2012 8:23 am

      Hi micjenks,

      Sure – give me a week and I’ll whip something up. Thanks for the idea!

    Hi Jason, I am making an app in android that will pass android sensors’ data to the java server. The problem is that I am unable to pass the data over a wifi connection …. can you help me with that?

    • October 2, 2012 7:56 am

      Hi Muhammad,

      Sure – what seems to be the issue? How are you trying to pass it? Through an HTTP request?

        Yeah, I am trying to send it through tcp protocol. It is working well in emulator but doesn’t do anything in the real device. I don’t know what to do next.

        Okay – why don’t you send me a PM through email with more details on the issue (i.e. any logs that you have concerning connectivity between client/server) and I’ll see if I can help you out.

    Hey I wanted to create a custom adapter that refreshes after every sort function that I created. The sort functions takes all the entries from the database and Order By a field. But when I feed it into a baseadapter and call notifyDataSetChanged() it doesnt responds… all i get is all the items in order but the list internally is not sorted. I click on an item and it plays the previous item… Plz help asap…:(

    • October 31, 2012 11:38 am

      Hi Saruabh,

      Can you email me your custom adapter’s code? I can take a look. I might not be able to respond right away as I am without power thanks to Hurricane Sandy.
