Setting Android Things Time and Time Zonethanksmister

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 15:47:48 +0000

Android Service startForeground and stopForeground tipthanksmister

Fri, 12 Jul 2013 20:30:11 +0000

I had a use case for an application that required a long running Service (I know they are always frowned upon). The service seemed to be getting killed during the night and stuck in the “restarting” stage (Settings > Apps > Running). The Service would never restart at some point after being killed. So to […](image)

Loading local JSON issue with Sencha, PhoneGap and Android 4.0.3thanksmister

Mon, 09 Jul 2012 21:34:12 +0000

This is just a little tip when trying to load local .json files using the Ext.data.Store ajax proxy type. The following code will work in Android 4.0.3+ but you need to be sure to add an extra couple lines to get it to work, noCache: false and enablePagingParams: false. Without those lines the code still […](image)

Fri, 06 Jul 2012 18:59:40 +0000

Wed, 04 Apr 2012 02:38:30 +0000

Letting me start by explaining the desired effect I was trying to achieve. On the Android Google+ application if you hit refresh there is a spinner animation that replaces the refresh ActionBar item when pressed. I was able to achieve this but setting the pressed MenuItem to a new layout by using “MenuItem.setActionView()”. However, on […](image)

Anyone who has tried calling the image or video capture intent using the default Camera activity probably has been met with much frustration.
