 Hi Folks,

I want to replace the default virtual/soft keyboard with a numeric keypad
(with big keys) to simplify number entry. Anyone has any such experiences or
knows any guide/tutorial about this?

Best Regards,

There is a sample input method editor (IME, a.k.a. soft keyboard) in the
SDK, and the source code to other IMEs (e.g., LatinIME) is available in
the Android open source repository.

I tried with an simple layout like this and i get the same error

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="
    <TextView android:id="@+id/text"

And my code just do this:

Context mContext = getApplicationContext();
Dialog dialog = new Dialog(mContext);

Just one thing the current activity is launch in a tab host.

Somebody have an idea?


2. Where in the source code of the default Browser perform the function of resolving domain name?

i mean, there must be some Java methods or classes employed in the
source code of the default Browser on the Android platform to perform
the function of resolving domain names to IP addresses. I want to know
where are they, or what the exact names of these classes or/and
methods are. Point out only one location performing this function is
OK, many thanks!
