What Is Desired Behaviour When User Press Home Key

What is the desired behaviour when the user press the home key? I have a situation here that when the home key is pressed and i call my application again, it returns as if it was not destroyed (actually, ondestroy is indeed not called). So, is the behaviour:

1. When returning to the app, get it as a newly created app or

2. When returning to the app, return it as it was left

As a side note, is there a way to know that the home key was pressed? I don't want to intercept it, i just want to know it was pressed.

Cyanogen 5 Home Screen Resets When Pressing Home

This has been happening since 5. 0. 8 test four and the latest 5. 0. 8. After i use a couple of apps, say i'm in gmail or using the browser, when i press the home button it takes a few seconds because the launcher/home screen seems to restart. It has been happening with stock anderwebs, market anderwebs, and launcher pro beta. I reinstalled the rom various times. I wiped everything.

Fixed permissions. Tried everything i know of and this still happens. Anyone know a fix? Anyone having this problem? I thought i read this was fixed on the changelog, but i guess not. Again, when i press home after using an app the launcher takes a few seconds to reset. Ex: it goes to the stock launcher with out my settings for a few seconds and then loads up my icons and all. It's actually a real pain and adds up to a huge waste of time

Edit: i think this is the bug that he said was fixed, from changelog: "long standing "disappearing icons" launcher bug fixed" this still happens when i press home icons disappear a few mins and then come back with my settings.

Customize Home Screen Instead Of Going With Default Home Screen

I am pretty new to android and have a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to drag and drop a ui widget from one activity to another activity?

2. Does android support multiple non fullscreen applications running active concurently  (say a browser and phone screen next to each other)?

3. Is it possible to customize the home screen instead of going with android default home screen? If so, can we change the layout and widgets in that screen completely?

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.

How To Check App Stopped By Which Home Key Or Other Apps

1. As android application life cycle, when i press home key my app will be stopped. Onpause()->onstop()

2. Also if an another app comes to front like an incoming call, my app will be stopped. Onpause()->onstop()

I want to do something differently in each case. But both cases go to onstop() equally. I cannot distinguish which one cause my app stopped.

Is there any way to find out?

Htc G1 - Home Button / System Recovery Issue

I recently purchased an unlocked and rooted g1 for my father, and he seems to have. Broken it. He said he didn't do anything to it, but he called me earlier saying that he was having trouble flashing roms on it, or something along those lines. I'm not too tech savvy, and i don't know anything about these droid phones, but i want to fix this.

The phone boots into 'android system recovery, ' specifically
Build: ra-dream-v1. 7. 0/

My first guess was to wipe the phone back to factory settings, and go from there, but this recovery system requires you to "press home to confirm. " The catch is the home key doesn't work. I've tried everything, and googled to kingdom come to no avail.

Can i change this 'system recovery' so that it accepts confirmation from the send button rather than the home button? And if i do that, do you think wiping all the data to factory settings will fix the problem anyways?

Htc Evo 4g - Home Button Stop Working

So i got my phone saturday and have run into the problem of the home button stop working. Now it did some it's update and i'm still having the home button issue and now none of my notifications are showing up in the upper bar "taskbar" ie my gmail or text notifications or my trillian icon when its running. The shortcuts on the dock show the number of emails or texts though, just not up top like it did.

I swear this makes me want to go back to hero. I didn't have these problems on that phone like i do with this one. I don't really want to go back to the hero but i'm frustrated as bell right now and i've had the phone 5 days.

Can Widgets Be Home Screen Aware?

Do android homescreen widgets "know" when user returns to that homescreen? Specifically, can a widget know (and use this knowledge) when a user comes back to that homescreen after:

- Unlocking the device
- Swiping back from another homescreen
- Completing a phone call
- Closing an app
- Closing a popup
- Pressing dedicated home soft/hard button
- Closing all-app list
Etc

How To Drop Appwidget To Home Screen

I checked out the "simplewikitionary", the demo project mentioned in the blog "http://android-developers. Blogspot.com/2009/04/introducing- home-screen-widgets-and.html". I tried to start the application in the emulator. The application was installed successfully on the emulator, but i could not see the wiki- widget on the home screen. I added also some logging code in the "wordwidget::onupdate()", however, the code seems never to be called. Does the emulator delivered in sdk 1. 5 support the appwidgets framework? Or i did forget to do some configuration?

Overriding Home Screen Search

I want to completely replace how the home screen handles searches, i figured out that this declaration in the manifest is enough to intercept both alphabetic and numeric entry on the home screen:

Code:.

But that also means that my app is now responsible for handling all dial intents. Which i don't want. I only want to intercept numbers entered from the home screen. If i leave out the second intent-filter, alphabetic input is received, but numbers go to the dialer.

Way To Find Out When An App In A Folder(on Home Screen)

What i'd like to do is find out the name of the folder an app placed in. A folder on the home screen that is: http://pocketnow.com/how-to/how-to-speed-up-your-android-organize-you.

Is there a way to find out if an app is in a folder(on the home screen)? And if so, what the folder name is? I'm guessing this would not have anything to do with the app's location in the file system. I'm i right?

Slow Home Screen Recover When Closing Applications

One thing i've noticed is that when when closing certain applications the home screen takes some time to recover. What i mean by recover is that the home screen initially only shows the background and a few icons, but no widgets, status bar and drawer. These items takes a while to come back on the screen. This doesn't happen with all applications, but when closing some (like skyfire) it always happens. With most applications the home screen is there instantly, so i was wondering why some seems to slow down the home screen like that. Ideas anyone?

I'm running android 1. 6 with adw. Launcher (but the same thing happens with other launcher including the built in android one).

Process Acore Stopped Unexpectedly On Home Screen

I am running android 2. 1 on a motorola milestone. I am getting the error "android. Process. Acore stopped unexpectedly" repeatedly when trying to access the home screen. I wasn't using the phone when it first happened so i don't have any clue what might have started it.

When booting up the phone, it shows the lock screen fine and i can unlock the phone by drawing my pattern, but i immediately get the error before anything on the home screen is made visible other than the notification bar at the top and the button for the app drawer on the bottom. (The notification bar is functional but the app drawer is not. ) I am only given the option to "force close", not to "wait". After clicking, the screen goes black (except for the bar at the top) and after a few seconds the background image, app drawer button, and same error message appear. It is an endless loop. None of the back, menu, home, or search buttons work.

I have tried plugging the phone into my computer to use adb, but the device doesn't show up and i can't access the settings on the phone to make sure usb debugging is on.

I really want to avoid having to reset the phone to factory settings (i already had to do that about a week ago because of the bug whereby android won't accept my password after 20 incorrect pattern attempts). I would like to at least be able to back up the data on the phone's internal storage before resetting.

Is there any way to stop this error without resetting the phone, or to back up data first?

Possible To Detect Which Grid Sections Used By Widgets On Home Screen

My understanding is that any of the available home screen spaces are compromised of a grid view. These slots in the grid view can contain a simple shortcut to a program or/and a single widgets can take up multiple rows or columns of the grid (e.g picture frame generally takes up one 2 columns & 3 rows)

Is there a way to detect which grid blocks are occupied on the home screen and what is available and how big of a block is available? There must be since sometimes when trying to add a widget it will tell you, "no space on this home screen. "

Motorola Droid - How 5 Home Screen Wallpapers Work

Looks like we get 5 home screens in v2. 2 coming out this week.

Does anyone know, will it be one wall paper image, like it is now, that as you shift home screens, you shift across the picture?

Or, will it be more like a completely different wallpaper per home screen?

Problem With Google Quick Search Function On Home Screen

I have a motorolla droid firmware version 2. 0. 1 and build number esd56. For awhile now i've been having a strange problem with the google quick search function on the main desktop type screen. When i touch the text box, the bottom half of the box will light up orange and the top half will not show any kind of activity.

I will start typing in my search and i can only see the bottom half of the letters typing out. If i had something previously typed in the box, it will stay there in the top half (where no activity was shown). So basically what's happening is that only the bottom half of the google search box will work while the top half just isn't functioning at all.

The only way i can temporarily make it work again is to turn off the phone and then restart it. Has anyone else had this problem and how do i go about fixing this?
