Android EditText: Done instead of Enter or Word Wrap instead of Multi Line

I have a multiple line EditText that does not permit line returns. Right now I am replacing returns with some spaces as soon as they click save. Is there any way I can replace the on screen enter button with a Done button? (like it is for single line EditText) I am aware that I […]

Android – IllegalStateException: map has zero size

I’m a novice android programmer. Let me give some context. My project uses ActionBarSherlock. I have an activity (Activity1) that contains two fragments – a SherlockListFragment and a SherlockFragment containing a google maps MapView (essentially a MapFragment). Search results are displayed in the list fragment and the map fragment, and an action bar options button […]

How to access Letter Recognizer API in Android?

I am creating a gesture application. In the Gesture class docs it reads: “A user-defined gesture can be recognized by a GestureLibrary and a built-in alphabet gesture can be recognized by a LetterRecognizer.” So how do you use the LetterRecognizer and where is the docs on it? There’s no API for that in the […]

SyncAdapter not being called depending on order of Account setup calls

I’ve come across some slightly odd behaviour with my SyncAdapter. The first time I install my app (after uninstalling with adb), it launches and creates an account. Depending on the ordering of some statements (see below), my SyncAdapter’s onPerformSync() will never be called; my account under “Accounts and sync” shows the “sync in progress” icon […]

Android layout centering in RelativeLayout for custom ListView

I’m really pulling my hair out over this one. Some background. I have a list of items that all have checkboxes next to them. When you deselect a checkbox, a button appears that allows you to delete the item from the list. This seems backwards at first but we only want “selected” items to be […]

How to re-authenticate a user on Firebase with Google Provider?

The example for using reauthenticate() in Firebase shows only how to re-authenticate a user who signed with Email and Password: AuthCredential credential = EmailAuthProvider.getCredential(“”, “password1234”); FirebaseAuth.getInstance().getCurrentUser().reauthenticate(credential); I also know how to re-authenticate with Facebook Provider (credential = FacebookAuthProvider.getCredential(AccessToken.getCurrentAccessToken().toString())). Problem is there’s no equivelant method in Google API to get the current Access Token and eventually […]
