 I just realized i might have posted this question in the wrong group,
hence I try again.


I'm writing an app where the user should be able to enter a phone
number, or choose one from Contacts.

I've found a preference widget that does exactly what I want. The
problem is that I don't know how to use it in my app.
Is it even possible?

The widget I'm talking about is
com.android.phone.EditPhoneNumberPreference

I found it browsing the source at source.android.com
in [platform/packages/apps/Phone.git] / res / xml /
call_feature_setting.xml

<PreferenceScreen android:key="button_voicemail_setting_key"
     android:title="@string/voicemail_settings"
     android:persistent="false">

     <!-- Note for all com.android.phone.EditPhoneNumberPreference
objects

    The last several attributes are for use with the EditText field
    in the dialog.  These attributes are forwarded to that field
    when the edittext is created.  The attributes include:
      1. android:singleLine
      2. android:autoText
      3. android:background -->

       <com.android.phone.EditPhoneNumberPreference
         android:key="button_voicemail_key"
         android:title="@string/voicemail_settings_number_label"
         android:persistent="false"
         android:dialogTitle="@string/voicemail"
         phone:confirmMode="confirm"
         android:singleLine="true"
         android:autoText="false" />
</PreferenceScreen>

Since I'm quite lazy I prefer to reuse existing code instead of
rewriting things myself.

Is there a way to accomplish the above without duplicating the
EditPhoneNumberPreference functionality in a custom preference?

This is a bug that happens when you have broken projects in your
workspace (where the projects cannot resolve its android Target).

Either fix those projects, or close them.
