Nullpointer Using Default Arrayadapter

I tried a lot of thing. So maybe i'm tired or i don't understand something somewhere!

How To Debug Nullpointer Exception

I'm trying to write an application for android and when i launch my new activity, i've set break points and found that it runs through my oncreate without any errors, but after that function returns, the debugger says there is a nullpointer exception. The problem is, its not in my code, it says its in activitythread. Performlaunchactivity(activitythread$activityrecord) line: 2268 and where the source normally would be (if it were my code) i just get "source not found. " And a button that says "edit source lookup path"

How can i setup eclipse so i can debug this problem? I'm sure i'm doing something wrong in my code, but because the exception originates in code i can't see, i have no idea how to figure out where the problem is.

I'm using android-sdk-linux_x86-1. 5_r3 and my g1 for this project.

I think my question really has more to do with android development than using eclipse. I'm not sure where to find the source for the the code that is throwing the exception. Maybe there is a way i can debug it without having that file, but i'm not sure what it would be.

Autocompletetextview Nullpointer Exception

I am trying to create a dialog with an autocompletetextview. I followed the tutorial on the android developer website, and it worked great. I have been successful using layouts on dialogs before, so i thought this would be just as easy. I created a layout for my dialog and i made sure that the autocompletetextview has an id.

Here's where the interesting stuff happens.


Here is the layout as well.


For some reason, auto_tv is null even though it does exist in the layout auto_layout. The only way i have been able to get an autocompletetextview in a dialog is by building the layout programmatically. Why is the autocomplettextview null when i try to use it? Did i forget something in my layout or am i not constructing the object correctly?

Updating Listview - Arrayadapter Within A Listactivity

I have a listview with a footer view that is bind to a custom arrayadapter within a listactivity. When creating the activity, i fill in the arrayadapter with some items through a dedicated thread. At the end, the thread calls setlistadapter and requestfocus through a handler. At this point, everything works fine. I mean, when scrolling the listview, all items get hilighted correctly, even when the footer view gets focused. Now, i need to update the items in the listview by adding a few items more. Again, i use a thread to update the arrayadapter and use a handler to post invalidate() on the listview. Now, when i scroll down the listview and reach the footer view, the last item of the list gets unreadable when losing focus. The same happens with the first item of the list when reaching a header view or a parent tab. I tried requestfocus() again but it didn't work. I also tried android:drawselectorontop="false" with no more result.

Custom Arrayadapter Crashes When Program Starts / Get It To Work

This is one of those cases where i had the code working, tried to add something else, and then found that my previous code has stopped working. It crashes when the program starts. The error seems to lie with the definition of the arrayadapter custom class, as if i try using a built in adapter, it works fine.code.

Return Empty Row In Custom Arrayadapter Without Having To Filter List Used For Listview

When my listview is being filled by a custom array adapter, i check for a certain parameter in the current list item, and if it is false, i want to return an empty row. At the moment, i am doing this by inflating an empty xml file, but that creates ugly list item dividers when a number of items should not be shown, and is obviously not the best way code.

I have tried to return "null", but it clearly expects a view to be returned. Is there anything i could do without having to filter the list that is being used for the listview beforehand (i want to keep it intact as i am doing other things with it, too).

How To Get Default Screen To Go Away

I have recently installed lock 2. 0, the full version. When i press the "end" button to bring the phone out of standby mode, the default lock screen still comes up with the "drag down" unlock. After that is unlocked is when the "lock 2. 0" lock comes up. Any ideas how to get the default screen to go away? This wasn't an issue with the free edition on lock 2. 0.

Any Way To Set Default Calendar

I've been using jorte, and like it, but i seem to have some across a deal-breaker. When entering an appointment from the phone, if you just click on "new event", key in the event, and press "done" it puts the event into "my calendar" by default. "My calendar" seems to be something stored only on the phone. It doesn't sync with google. To get the event into your google calendar you have to press "show details" and select the relevant calendar from the drop down list under "calendar. "The problem is

(A) it's very easy to forget to do this when quickly entering an appointment, meaning that your new event will be in the wrong calandar and will not sync;
(B) there is no way of going back into the event and telling which calendar it has been assigned to; and
(C) even if you realise that you've put the event in the wrong calendar there is no way of going back in and changing it to a different one. You just have to delete it (together with any details or repeat information) and start again from scratch.

This is driving me a bit mad, because i keep finding the odd event which is not coming up on my google calendar online for this reason, and i can't afford for this to happen, so i will need to drop jorte unless i can find a solution. Is my analysis above correct, or am i missing something? To solve this there needs to be a way of setting the calendar which new events get dumped to by default, and also a way of easily changing events from one calendar to another without deleting them.

Get Default Fonts Properties On Droid

I need to draw some text on my canvas, and i'd really avoid hardcoding some particular text size.

Is there some standard way to find a default text size (and other properties) used in the os?

So far i found only textview. Settextattributes(context, resid) to which i can pass Attr. Textappearance.

But the thing is that i don't want to create a textview - i just have a canvas and i want to draw text in it using default font. Is it possible?

Default Browser Search Feature Broken

Default browser and search feature broken after cm 4. 2. 10. 1. I updated to 4. 2. 10. 1 (and wiped the dalvik-cache) and experienced several annoying problems, worst of which is the device is much slower than ever. The most annoying of them is the default browser is broken - it won't load. This also causes the search feature on the device to fail. I've installed dolphin browser (which is ok by me) but i want my regular browser back. I reverted to cm4. 2. 9. 1 but the device is still super-slow (slower than before updating to 4. 2. 10. 1) and still no browser. Anyone know what's up here or how i can get the browser back?

Motorola Droid 2 - Keep Things To Landscape As Default

I would love to use my d2 in landscape mode all the time. I use dxtop for my launcher so i can force that to landscape easily. Many of the apps and games i use are landscape anyway. My question is about the lock screen. I know the lock screen does operate in landscape mode (with the keyboard open), but when i close the keyboard it goes back to portrait. Is there any way for me to keep things landscape as the default?
