Dialogs: in(determinate) vs. spinner/horizontal style

 I thought an indeterminate dialog was the circle and a "determinate"
one was a progress bar, but now I see that these properties are set
orthogonally.  You can call setIndeterminate(true/false) entirely
independent of calling setProgressStyle(STYLE_HORIZONTAL/
STYLE_SPINNER).  All four combinations are possible.  So, if the style
call sets whether it is a spinner or a bar (it does, I have verified
this), then was does "indeterminacy" refer to?  What aspect of a
ProgressDialog is it setting?  As far as I can tell, my dialogs look
and behave exactly the same no matter how I set the indeterminacy.

Thank you.

1- Don't use your own db. Extend the contacts.contract to write your

2 - Use ContentObserver to keep track of any changes made to the
contacts. This technique would however require your application to be

3- Store all RAW contact IDs related to a CONTACT_ID in your db and
infer the content of the aggregate contact from all its constituent
RAW contacts

In my case i need to keep a separate db and i was wondering if there's
any other new technique of keeping the CONTACT_ID current after
aggregations and dis-aggregations..
