How To Prevent That Keyboard Hides My Edittext

I have a relativelayout at the top, then below i have a listview in the center and finally at the bottom i have another relativelayout with an edittext and a button inside.

I want the listview to resize when i click on the edittext and the ime(virtual keyboard) appears. If i put adjustresize in the manifest, the listview is resized to leave space for the ime, but the relativelayout with the edittext that is below is covered by the ime and i can't see what i'm writing. If i put adjustpan, the keyboard pushs up all, the listview is not resized and i loose the top relativelayout. My code.

Get Keyboard To Appear With Ought Having To Click On Edittext

I am using a custom layout on an alertdialog. The custom layout has an edittext filed which i am using to get a phone. When i display the alertdialog, in order to get the keyboard to type in the phone number you have to click on the edittext filed. Is there a way to get the keyboard to automatically pop up when i bring up the alertdialog so that the user does not have to click on the edittext filed to get the keyboard.

Virtual Keyboard Not Updating Edittext

My problem is: i have two edit text on an activity, the first does not have any filter, the second is "inputtype:"number". When i click on this second, the virtualkeyboard appear, but when i click on numbers only the first one appear on the edit text. Then, when i hide the virtual keyboard, all the numbers i have clicked appear. The worst is that: 1) this does not happen when i use version 1. 5, but only with following version; 2) this does not happen with the other edittext; 3) when using the "real" keyboard, there is no problem; 4) i have also tried copying the same xml settings from the "working" edittext, with no success. 5) my last try was to intercept the key pressed with onkeylistener, manually setting the text with the pressed char, but even with that the edittext got updated only after the virtualkeyboard disappear; 6) on some posts i read that maybe the problem is that virtual keyboard events does not flows exactly like the "real" keyboard ones, but i could not get further.

Keyboard Not Launched From Status Bar Edittext / Why Is So

I implemented a edittext and a button on a status bar.

The problem i face here is, when the edittext is focused and i click it, i couldn't see the keyboard popup not happening.

But if i focus it, cursor blinks, and when i type some characters it is handled by quick search box activity(intent ). ! (Which ever activity am in) i have implemented onclick() function for editext. So that i thought to launch the keyboard input forcefully, even then it doesn't work. ! Code.

What is the problem ? How should i receive the keyboard popup first and characters typed in being sent to edittext on the status bar. ? Code.

Soft Keyboard Without An Edittext / Detect Key Presses With It

How can i detect key presses reliably with a hard or soft keyboard?

My app remotely controls another device over wifi, and i need to detect every key press on either a soft or hard keyboard. I don't really need an edittext because i just need to send the characters one at a time as they are pressed and don't need the final text string.

I have tried using an edittext with onkeypress, but ran into the problems here with not getting key presses with soft keyboards. And textwatcher isn't a good option because i need each key press.

I'll use an edittext if i have to, but would prefer not to. What i really want is to:

Bring up a soft keyboard when the user hits a search button
User presses keys and i transmit the codes to remote device. Don't really need to see anything on screen in an edittext since it will be shown on the remote device
User presses the custom done button on the soft keyboard to close it

Is There An App That Hides Pictures

I know that there are apps that prevent your screen from timing out where you have to press the menu button and then slide to unlock your screen. But is there an app that dims your screen after a set time without your screen being locked? Like you just tap the screen to make it go back to normal brightness before it dimmed from an app/widget?New question: ignore whats on top.

***Is there an app that hides pictures? Like you have to do a certain gesture to make certain photos visible? But you can still show other pics?(I update this thread everytime i have a new question instead of making a new thread for a single question. )

Qvga Screen Hides Some Pixels - Solution For This

I have a problem with missing pixels on qvga screen on android (all versions including 2. 2). The original problem was with linearlayout and margin="1px". It was ok on the normal screen but on qvga there was sometimes no space between gui controls, like if margin="0px" and not 1px. So i tried to make the example simple (to be sure that it is not a linearlayout bug), i have just put transparent (height = 10px) and white (height = 1px) images into imageviews into the main screen. 25% of the white images are not shown on the qvga screen. The behaviour on the normal screen is ok. The screenshots are from the emulator but the problem exists on real devices too.

See screenshots on my web page.

Is it an android bug? Can i do anything with it? Note that my original problem was with linearlayout and margin="1px". Is there something like margin="1px_that_is_not_hidden"? (Pt, dp, dip, . Don't seem to be solution

Prevent Screen From Locking On Playing Music

Is there a way to do this? I'd prefer to not have to unlock my g1 while driving because i want to change songs. Unless i'm g1 stupid (which is entirely possible, since i just got it yesterday), and there's a way to control my playlist by using some button i don't know about? I could control songs on my old blackberry by hitting 6 to skip to the next song.

Alternatively, is it possible to completely disable the auto-screen lock and just lock the phone manually when i want to toss it in my purse?

Prevent Droid From Backing Up Wireless Settings

Whereas i don't particularly care that google has access to my contacts and even stuff like my facebook password, i have no intention of sharing my wifi key with them. And i'm shocked that my googling doesn't turn up anyone else who is concerned by this. Does anyone know of a way to prevent that aspect from syncing? I have root and am technically inclined.

Prevent Back Button From Closing Sub-activity

I have a main activity. It's main purpose is to handle tab menu. If a user click a tab it'll load another activity as a sub-activity, still showing the tab menu. I am using intent to do this:

Setcontent(new intent(this, b. Class))

This sub-activity has an onclick function as well. If the user clicks one of the links it'll load xml layout file using setcontentview command:

Setcontentview(r. Layout. B1);

Now, when the back button is pressed while xml file is loaded, it'll close the entire application. Is there a way to prevent this, say, return to the sub-activity or the main activity?

Nexus - How To Prevent Amazon Mp3 From Self-launching All The Time

I guess it doesnt really harm much, at least in terms of memory and cpu load, but its just the principle. I dont want that spamware on my phone in the first place, and the fact that it is already taking whatever amount of valuable internal storage that it is is bad enough. Any app for this? Something that just prevents apps from launching?

Prevent Rooted Phones To Access Sqlite Db And Preferences

I have seen a few discussions on this, but i just wanted to see if there has been anything new. Currently, a rooted phone can access the /data/data/ com. Here/ path. Insides are all the wonderful areas like databases, files, and preferences. In fact, i was actually horrified to see that i could browse all the apps data on my development phone.

Is there a way to protect someone from accessing these (ie, password protect the database from shell access)? My issue is specifically in the database. While there isn't anything regarding passwords stored inside, there is some intellectual property in terms of the actual data and schema that could make it easier for people to copy what my application does.

My solution right now is to clear the particular tables i don't want people seeing in the database in ondestroy (when the user exits), or more accurately in onpause() with isfinishing(). Every time the application is launched the database is repopulated, so i am not worried about losing any data. I do realize that this isn't foolproof, but it seems to be better then nothing.

Motorola Droid X - Setting That Will Prevent Wifi From Turning Off Every Time Phone Sleeps

I asked this on the motorola forum as well and am hoping someone somewhere can help. Am i missing a setting that will prevent wifi from turning off every time the phone sleeps? The only setting i can find asks when to let it sleep and i have it set at never but every time i pick up the phone wifi has dropped the connection and it takes several minutes to reconnect. With my droid that never happened, once connected it stayed that way until i turned it off. 3g is terrible in my house so i miss stuff while wifi is "sleeping".

I only have a few days left to return this phone and these small, nagging issues keep turning up making me really consider returning it. I can't find another phone to replace it yet. I really wish i hadn't sold my droid. I hate to return to my razr until something good comes out.

Programatically Scrolling An Edittext

I'm writing a simple caesar-encryption-activity. Two edittexts on screen, one clear-text, one crypted.

Here's an example for the crypted edittext - the cleartext one is similar.


Now when entering cleartext i have an textchangedlistener running that programatically crypts and fills that crypto-edittext. So far, so good.

When the cleartext entered gets really long, the cleartext-edittext scrolls with my imput, but the crypto-edittext stays at the top of the text. I'd really like the crypto-edittext to scroll so that it always shows the bottom line of its content.

How can that be done, preferably from the ontextchanged()-method of the textwatcher?

Updating Database From An Edittext

I have a text field in sqlite database, which i want the user to be able to update.

So i extract and display the text in an edittext view. The user edits it and presses "update" button. At this point i want to update the text field in database with whatever user has in the edittext.

Here's the problem, edittext returns the type editable.
And the put(string key, string value) function of contentvalues, that i use while updating the record, expects a string. So how to put an editable in a string?

I tried upcasting the editable to charsequence and then casting that to string, but that gives me a runtime exception, classcastexception, which it very well should (because the object was an editable to begin with, i cannot make it a string).

So how to get around this? Here's the code i am using. I know it is wrong, but i cannot figure out how to do this.

How To Make Spinner Look Like Edittext

Ok so i spent quite a bit of time trying to find posts online about how to make a spinner look like an edittext. Basically, i want all the functionality of a spinner but i don't want that ugly down arrow that comes with the spinner. I'm perfectly capable of writing an edittext that opens a selectable list on click but theres got to be an easier way to just change how the spinner looks. Is there a way to do this in styles?Or themes?Or something?

Edittext With Multiple Listners

We have a few actions to be taken based on edit and based on focus lost on a text filed, hence we made sure this view object listens to both some thing like this fieldedit. Addtextchangedlistener(filelist); fieldedit. Setonfocuschangelistener(filelist);

In this context, when the field is edited and focus is lost i would expect text change events should be handled completely before onfocuschange events are executed provided the is only one event handling thread.could any one tell me if there is only one event handling thread. Also in this event handling code if we are adding and remove parts of the view what kind of deadlock could happen. For some reasons related to updates to view is resulting in dead lock some where and we are seeing error messages
