 Is it possible to set the width of a spinner dropdown list in code?
I have a spinner populated with integers, and it does not look good
with the list expanding to full width.
Can I set the width to wrap the content somehow?

I tried this..
Spinner hSpinner = (Spinner) timerView.findViewById(R.id.timer_hour_spinner);
ArrayList<Integer> hList = new ArrayList<Integer>(21);

for (int i = 0; i <= 20; i++) { hList.add(i); }

ArrayAdapter hAdapter = new ArrayAdapter(RemindMe.this,
android.R.layout.simple_spinner_item, hList);


But still showing the full width. What will be the solution?--

 But presumably the alarm for updatePeriodMillis will be owned by a system
process and will therefore be immune to the task killers.

In my experience, that's exactly right, hence its usefulness as a
backup for my own alarm.

Aaaaaaaaah. Good point.

Clearly, therefore, we need to create an app widget that is a task
killer killer... ;-)

2. VideoView - MediaPlayer : how do they recover from network interruption or handover ?

Use case:

User starts viewing video on current network == WiFi
User moves out of WiFi range.  Evdo network handover happens

Observed behavior:

Once buffer runs out user gets "Cannot play this video"

Expected behavior:

Either  MediaPlayer recovers from network error or provides API hooks
to allow programmatic recovery.


I've implemented MediaPlayer.OnErrorListener as well as a
BroadcastReceiver that listens to

However, despite experimenting with MediaPlayer.OnErrorListener(),
getCurrentPosition() seekTo() and start(), I've been unable to create
a user experience that maintains the videoview.

Is there any guidance on how to create a MediaPlayer based experience
that can deal with network handovers?
