Refresh Notification After Deleting From User


I have a backgroundservice running, an icon is displayed in the status- bar. When a user clicks the button "delete notifications" my icon dissappears also. But i want that after that my icon appears again! So that the user is able to click on the notification to get into my application. Now i display the notification in a thread every time. But i want to display it only if it was deleted. I think the best way is to check if the notification is displayed, is there a way to get this information?

Best Way To Refresh Adapter / Listview On Droid

My book, "hello android" gives this as a way of using a custom db helper, setting up a cursor, and then setting up an adapter as follows code.

With this however, everytime i need to refresh the data set, i need to keep running this block of code (which gets a bit difficult inside an onclick() for a button due to "this" not being available.

Is this the best way to refresh the data set, or should i look towards removing the . Close and issue an adapter. Notifydatasetchanged()? If i do this, sometimes i get a force close as (and i can't remember at the moment) but sometimes it cannot delete properly - i think this may be because the database is currently open and it tries to open again.

Should we also be declaring the variables for the cursors, databasehelpers and adapter in the class (outside of the oncreate) so that they are accessible to all the functions?

I realize this is just poor programming at this stage, but im trying to get some pointers as to the best way of doing things.

Incredible Facebook Notification In Notification Bar / Takes To Web Address That Won't Open

I have the facebook app on my incredible, and it works fine as far as i can tell. However, when i get a facebook notification in the notification bar at the top of the screen, it takes me to a web address that won't open, every time. I've tried a battery pull just for fun, but no better. I have no idea why a battery pull would help, but i figured i could cross it off the list. (Came from a storm)

I'm left going through my "profile" on my app to the mobile site, and then i can get messages. Any ideas about having the notification link work to the page it's trying to render?

Tabwidget - Tabspec Programmatically And Refresh Data Within Tabs From Onresume

Using android sdk. In my first application, i have a tabwidget which is defined into the xml. It can contains several tabs, created programmatically. The number of tabs depends of the data coming from a web service.

I want to reload the data each time the application is displayed. To do that, i reimplemented the onresume on the activity. A background task is launched to preform the refresh of the data then, to recreate the tabs (into a runonuithread method).

The problem here is i don't know if i have to recreate the tabs or to refresh only the data of the views inside the tabs.

For now, i recreate the tabs but i often got some exceptions and i'm pretty sure it is the wrong way to do that. For example, i leave the application with the second tab open, when i come back, the reload is perform and i got an exception. This exception is not there if i were on the first tab. I can try to "clean" the tabs or "remove" the views but i guess is weird to do that.

So what is the best way to implement tabs and data refresh ?

Clearing / Deleting All Calendar Data Error - Application Google Services Framework Has Stopped Unexpectedly

Today i started getting the dreaded "the application google services framework(process com.google. Process. Gapps ) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Error. In the past clearing calendar data in my settings (calendar storage & all calendar applications) then re-syncing solved the problem. This process is well documented and i'm quite familiar with it. Didn't work today.

When clearing all calendar data didn't work i tried deleting all calendar data in my google account through the website. There is now no data in my google calendar. But when i open my calendar app, if my google calendar is selected, all the previous events suddenly reappear. They shouldn't be there since i've deleted my calendar data both on my phone (allegedly) and in the cloud.

I've tried selecting/unselecting my calendars. I've deleted calendars. I've added new google accounts with virgin calendars. Tried everything i could think of with no success so i'm hoping someone has a new suggestions. Of course every time i try to manually sync i get the error. How do i get my phone to erase all this calendar data? Is there an app on the sd card that i can delete?

Note: i added a new google account to my phone with a virgin calendar. I can manually sync with this calendar without getting an error. However, when i go to the options screen to select which calendar i want to use, i get the "syncing" symbol in my toolbar and a few seconds later i get the error again. This happens no matter what is checked at the time.

Is There A Way To Request Permissions From A User As You Need Them

I suspect there has to be. I mean i saw for bluetooth there is. I was wondering why it is not as easy for the other permissions. I mean heck we can intercept urls without even asking a user for the most part, so i would have to suspect that permissions have to have this ability.

User Experience And Ui Refinements

I think android has a ton of functionalities and that's definitely wonderful. I am not trying to be overally critical since i know the android team has been working hard and this is highly appreciated. However in all systems, there are rooms for improvement and here are a few areas where i think android can improve upon:

1) ui refinements - currently it's actually pretty hard to create good- looking ui in android. This is one of the main reasons why uis in android look like childplay compared to iphone apps. Any of the base/ core ui components in android (to be blunt) are not that pretty. To customize and add in the appropriate gradient and create the kind of sophisticated uis that are comparable to iphone apps is twice as hard. Having done development in both, this is something android should target. Overall the android ui is too blocky, too funky, and not stylish. And in some cases, they are moving backwards. The new tabs in android 2. 0 look worse than android 1. 6. The new spinner is also not doing justice either. A focus in this area will be helpful in order to create better ui for android applications.

2) user experience - instead of constantly just adding new functionalities, focus on user experience. For example, always having to click the menu key to bring up a menu requires additional clicks that are not necessary. Having to click a back key and guess where the current application ui will take me back to is also not great. Possibly provide a built-in on-screen menu in the framework? Provide a breadcrumb component as part of the framework as well?

Log From A Samsung Moment User

If you have a samsung moment and have adb working for it, would you mind downloading deadly chambers demo off the android market and running it with the log up for me?I'm getting reports of it "not opening" but no additional details. Just the crash log would help tremendously. I think all you need to do is install and try to play the game.

I can return the favor with an evo, tattoo, g1, n1, archos 5 or droid.

Showing File Upload Progress To User

Does anyone have a recommendation on how to visually show progress of uploading a large file to a web server? My app needs to upload one photo at a time, as directed by the user. Images are about 200kb.

I don't want to put up a progress dialog and block the user from further interaction while the upload is in progress. Looks like i can:

Have a service upload the photo, and post status updates to the notification bar.
Upload through service (or bg thread), but post status updates to some in-app notification indicator.

I'm wondering if #1 is more standard, i like the idea of putting off updates to the notifcation bar so it's separated from my main app. I don't really want to build some global upload widget that has to be displayed on each activity my user navigates to.
