 Hi All,

                Currently I am writing an Android application which uses 
API. I installed the WikiTude browser application in the Android SDK
emulator from Android Market (To get Android Market in emulator I
followed this link ).

                When I run the WikiTude browser application in emulator it asks 
to set location settings. I enabled nable GPS satellitesoption &
run the application, again it make an alert for location settings. I
am not able to run this application. Please help me.

                Can anyone tell me is it possible to run GPS based application 
Android Emulator? Or not?

                          If it is, Is there any work around to run
GPS based application in emulator?

                       Any help will be greatly appreciated
                       Thanks in Advanceā‚¬.

1. Default Paint size too small on new device; is there a better source?

It's not a bug; you need to go through the Context/Resource to find the
correct app scaling, and a plain constructor does not have this so can not
take such things into account.

You should define attributes like text sizes in resources, where you can use
units like "dp" and use those values to set your size.  This is essentially
how TextView works, where it gets a style array of the attributes (size,
color, etc) it uses to initialize its paint.


2. KeyEvent definitions / meanings?

Can someone point me to documentation with the definitions / meanings
(i.e., what action is expected to be performed) for the KeyEvents?

Aside from the obviouse KEYCODE_A to KEYCODE_Z, etc. there are some
that I don't understand and I cannot find any mention anywhere on the
web ?!

Specifically the following, but generally all of them:


Also, is there a meta-key to dismiss the keyboard via an injected
