 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

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

<PreferenceScreen android:key="button_voicemail_setting_key"

     <!-- Note for all

    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 -->

         android:autoText="false" />

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?

I am trying to run the sample soft keyboard included in the SDK. I am
using the de{*filter*}, and the literature says that to use a breakpoint
while debugging a SERVICE, I need to include:


So here is the portion of the code I modified:

@Override public void onCreate() {
                                                             /* now let's
wait until the de{*filter*} attaches */

breakpoint 1
        mWordSeparators =
getResources().getString(R.string.word_separators);       //
breakpoint 2

I have put a couple of breakpoints, at the statements indicated by the

This is what happens: the de{*filter*} first stops at the breakpoint1, for
a few seconds. But then the service restarts. For the life of me I
can't figure out what makes the service to restart.

Any ideas?
