Can I Personalize Items Of My Mapview

I have a mapview with itemizedoverlay, like in the example of mapview in androids developers guide

I have my own icon on the items, but also i want to personalize them, adding some text, not only the icon. But i mean text visible on the map, not when i press on the item. Can i do it? How?

Multiple Overlay Items

I seem to be having a problem with using itemizedoverlay and overalyitems in it.

I can get the first overlayitem to appear on the map but not any items after that.

Code sample is on:

Quick overview here:


Samples of how it's used:


The first marker shows up on the map but if i add any more they don't show up? Is there a problem with the populate() method? I tried calling it manually after adding all markers but it still didn't help.

Animation For All The Items In A List

I have a listview which uses a custom .xml for showing each item.

Fine, in this xml i have a checkbox (with visibility set gone) and a textview with a text. What i want is have an animation which moves the text to the right and shows the checkbox. I have the animation working fine for one item, but if i want to start it for all the items the problem comes.

I've tried with a loop over all the items but the animations start at different times (so visually is weird). Also, i've tried with an animationset, but it moves the entire listview to the right instead the textview (i can't launch the animationset from a single item because only moves that item then).

Listview Not Checking Items On1.5

I'm developing an app for android in eclipse. Currently i target api level 3, but i was mistakenly testing on an android 1. 6 emulator (api level 4). On 1. 6 it worked fine, but on 1. 5 my listview with choice_mode_single does not select items when they are clicked on.

Here's my listview xml:


Here's the xml for the items in the listview:


I created a custom arraylist adapter to let me customize getview.

Here's the code for domainarrayadapter:


All of this code works fine compiled against api level 3 and run on an android 1. 6 emulator. However, run against a 1. 5 emulator, items in the listview do not check when clicked on.

Spinner Not Displaying List Items

I think i am going crazy right now. I am trying to create a spinner populated by a datatable but for some reason the dropdown list items text is not being displayed. I have looked all over and have seen other posts with people having this same problem.


The spinner gets created just fine and is populated with 4 items but whenever i click on the spinner i see 4 items with no text and just radiobuttons. If i select any of them i am getting the correct selected item value but there is just no data displayed.

Moving Window Of Items In Listview

I am trying to update the listview with periodic updates taken from an http response. Now, i am thinking that because this is very specific to my application, i can get away by using a background thread and then updating the listview using the magic ui thread. The last time i tried this, i had to remove the entire adapter of the listview and then fill it up again so it worked. But this time, what i am trying to do is a more "smooth" scrolling listview. Something like a scrolling ticker. Is there a different approach to achieve this?

Ui Design For Removing Items From A List

This may sound a little strange, but i'm making a game for the android phone, but i don't own one myself. I'm in a bit of a loss in designing my ui and need some suggestions from anroid phone owners. The general idea is to have a screen where a user can start a board from the beginning or load a previous save game. I'm trying to minimize the ui and would like to give the user to remove any unwanted level or save game from the same selection.

Here is what the ui looks like.

Play level
| Level 1 |
| Level 2 |
| Level 3 |
Saved game
| Save 1 |
| Save 2 |
| Save 3 |

So in terms of a vertical linear layout, there is a textview, listview, textview, listview. The user can touch/click the desired level/save_game to play. But i want to give them the option to delete any old saved game from this same screen. On my palm pre, i would just flick them to the side. This gesture doesn't seem to be available here. So my question is, how does other andoid apps do this?

Motorola Droid - How To Scroll Without Opening Items

Is there something i am missing about scrolling? Whenever i scroll through the calls log (and other lists too but that one comes up the most) it is constantly opening names that i touch when all i want to do is scroll down the list to find a number. How do i scroll on the droid without constantly opening entries on the list and having to use the back button to resume the scroll? This also affects scrolling speed because if i put my finger down to scroll slowly and not just flick while barely touching the screen, it immediately opens that name and as others have pointed out occassionaly dials it too.

Implement Something On A Mapview That Acts Much Like Zoomer

I'd like to implement something on a mapview that acts much like zoomer - slides in whenever you touch the map, then fades after a bit of inactivity. Mapview is closed-source, sigh. I'm sure i can figure it out, but if anyone else already has, i'd love to have some code to look at.

Disappearing Mapview Zoom Controls

Since mapview. Getzoomcontrols() is deprecated in api level 5, how do we keep the &*(#$(! Zoom controls from disappearing (when it wasn't deprecated you could add the zoom controls to a zoomcontrols view. To no avail, they still require a user touch and disappear after a few seconds. Fyi i'm in satellite mode if that matters.

Its a big problem. Need a way to know whether user is touching the screen because they want to zoom or because they want to say drop a pin on that spot. With disappearing zoom controls you cannot achieve this.
