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.

Display Virtual Keyboard In A Custom View

I am building a custom view and would like to pragmatically display the default on-screen input method (if any) when certain conditions are met. Due to some specific features of the view i am not able to reuse the textview and edittext views with all the functionality already present. The idea was to simply display the keyboard and capture the keypress events in the view.code.

While the approach seems to work with edittext i was not able to show the on-screen keyboard ( showinputmethodpicker () seems to work ). While browsing the textview source code i came across the following method: code.

I was not able to find the class editableinputconnection in the documentation or in the source code.

I would appreciate any kind of advice on how to show the on screen keyboard and how to properly register my view so it can receive the keypress events.

How To Control Window-panning / When Virtual Keyboard Gets Displayed

Is there any way to control the amount that the activity-window gets scrolled up when the virtual keyboard gets displayed? The default (when panning is enabled for that activity in the manifest) is to pan exactly that far so that the user can still see the edittext or whatever the user wants to edit. Now i have an edittext below said edittext that dynamically changes text if text gets entered into the edittext above. I'd like to scroll the window a little further up so that both edittexts get displayed. And i don't want to use a scrollview, just the normal mechanism that get's triggered when you open up the virtual keyboard.

Contacts Apps To Pull Up A Virtual Keyboard / Have Alpha Tabs

I am looking for a better contacts app. I have hundreds of contacts and scrolling takes forever. On the blackberry i could easily hit a key to sort quickly. I can't do that easily on the droid-at least not with one hand. I haven't seen anything in the market yet that seems to do what i want. Any contacts apps that pull up a virtual keyboard or have alpha tabs?

App Like Cubase To Record Audio And Maybe Play Virtual Instruments On Phone

Is there an app like cubase to record audio and maybe play virtual instruments on android and mix them ?

If so, could you use a midi usb keyboard plugged in the android phone to play music ?

But at least an app to record voices and mix them.

Ive heard of "16 bars" but there is no way to mix different tracks together i believe.

Htc Desire - How Easy Is It To Get Back To Default

So i have decided to root. I was going to goldcard/ruu to debrand my orange uk desire but i am a tinkerer and would love to flash rooted roms etc. Before i start i have a few questions;

1. Radio firmware: this is the biggie for me - i know that doing any sort of rom change you are likely to run into issues with the radio, this seems especially true on orange ones. So without having to unlock (it may sound cheap, but i haven't been paid for 2 months ) is there a way to avoid potential simlocks? Ie can i keep the radio version that is currently only my phone (just updated to froyo).

2. I know you can't get ota updates with rooted roms, but i like to keep up to date. I assume the guys making the roms are coming out with new ones all the time so is it quite easy to flash a new rom and be on your way?

3. Titanium backup and nandroid - i have seen people saying to use these for backups when you root. As far as i can tell titanium backup is good for settings etc, and nandroid is good for getting all your apps back, right? They both seem to require root access, so that surely means i can't backup all my settings before i root?

4. How easy is it to get back to default?

5. Which rom? I have seen many singing the praises of defrost. Is this pretty close to stock rom?

6. Anything you suggest i do/install when i am rooted? Anything especially cool .

I have seen many guides about, this in particular looks pretty damn easy to follow. Though the latest comments seem to be people having trouble now that they are on froyo and not eclaire. Also i got my phone early april, so i assume the screen is amoled, it doesn't seem to suffer from backlight bleed and its black as black on black backgrounds.

Sprint Htc Hero - Easy Way To List My Apps

Just wanted to see if there was either a straightforward way or an actual app that would allow me to, say, generate a list of all my installed apps so that i could keep them in case i needed to re-download them (factory reset, etc).

Seems simple enough.

Nother think i'd like to see would be more of a shopping cart and/or wish list set up in the market. Ever been looking for one app and ran across 2 other kick ass ones. Or some that you'd at least like to look into. But knew would completely distract you from the original app you were looking for? I'd like to be able to "tag" an app as something i'd like to look into later.

Anyway, please let me know if there's an easy way to produce a list of all the apps.
