 Hi all,

    Is modeless window supported in Android? Or can I run an Activity

will disappear)?

Best regards

 For an activity that looks like a dialog, in your manifest just use

For modeless windows, there are flags in WindowManager.LayoutParams
that can be used to the input behavior of a window (though you
probably only want to use these with dialog windows created inside of
an activity, not on an activity window itself).

 Hi hackbod,

    Thanks a lot! The "Theme.Dialog" does work.
    But could you pls tell me which flag in WindowManager.LayoutParams
can be used to the input behavior of a window? I tried some but none
seemed to do the job.

Best regards

 Hi hackbod,

    Actually, what I want to do is:
    1. run a activity with the theme of "Theme.Dialog". Supposing this
activity is running on the homescreen, so there are some icons of
applications on its background.
    2. click an icon, the application witch is clicked will be run.

    Is it possible to do this?

Best regards.

2. Crash Reports - ACRA v4 beta started

Hi all,

I had promised it months ago... and it's finally here!

I published one week ago the first beta release of ACRA v4. It finally is a v4, 
because there have been so many changes since ACRA 3.1 that a simple 3.2 
version was just not realistic enough!

The archive can be downloaded here:

Some documentation:

   - Setup instructions:
   - Advanced usage: 
   - Reports fields (old and new): 
   - For maven users, a repository is now available: 
   are listed here:
What are the most significant changes ? Full details are available in the 
ChangeLog ( but lets sum this 

   - New data added to reports:
      - logcat: default, events, radio (requires READ_LOGS permission)
      - result of 'dumpsys meminfo' for your application process
      - application version code
      - phone device id (requires READ_PHONE_STATE permission)
      - text events from the system dropbox (requires READ_LOGS)
      - application start date
      - device features
      - report unique id
      - application installation unique id
      - external storage state
      - settings (system and secure)
      - is silent ?
   - As requested by many, a report should only be notified once to the user. 
   Reports which could not be sent due to bad network are still sent but 
   without annoying the user anymore.
   - You can now implement your own Report Sender and do whatever you want 
   with reports data on the device.
   - Basic HTTP Authentification is available for those using the formUri 
   parameter to send reports to a custom script
   - Reports can be sent by a mail Intent, for applications where INTERNET 
   permission is not wanted
   - New SharedPreferences items:
      - include system logs (may contain private data)
      - include Device ID (IMEI) (this a private identifier)
      - include user email (the user inputs his email address in the 
      preference field)
      - always accept sending reports
      - The crash report dialog can now include an email field. The content 
      of this field is saved in SharedPreferences.
   - All android build related fields have been merged in a single BUILD 
   - You can define which fields will be collected and sent. This can 
   improve performance and allow you to get rid of the fields you never read.

Lots of things have been rewritten, so this beta phase will last around a month 
so that we can ensure that there is no major issue using ACRA v4 instead of 
ACRA v3.

As I have really limited time to do deep testing, ACRA relies on your 
testing and bug reports!

Thank you all!
