Gracefully destroying Dialog box

 Hi. I have an activity which pops up a Dialog box, to get some text
input from the user. The problem arises when you switch orientation.
The Dialog disappears, so I have added code to set and check flags in
the savedInstanceState, meaning that the Dialog is displayed again in
these circumstances.

However, the dialog isn't being closed gracefully when the orientation
is switched. I get the following error:

10-23 12:53:54.385: ERROR/WindowManager(2852): Activity
com.bla.bla.Bla has leaked window$decorv...@435ceda0 that
was originally added here
10-23 12:53:54.385: ERROR/WindowManager(2852):
android.view.WindowLeaked: Activity com.bla.bla.Bla has leaked window$decorv...@435ceda0 that
was originally added here

I know when the window is going to be closed, but can't find a way of
closing it manually. I open it with;  ...but there
doesn't seem to be any corresponding alert.destroy() method or

Any ideas how I can manually close the dialog box without user input?

and it seems there should be a standard method to the effect of

 You can close a dialog using its dismiss() method : #dismiss%28%29

You might want to consider having the activity manage restoring your
dialog for you as well: #onCreateDialog%28int%29

1. Disable hardware codecs

Hello   ,

I have a file a audio/3gp file that I can play in eclair-2.1 emulator but
its throwing error on my Zoom2
device  says "Sorry , this player doesn't support this  type of audio file "

emulator will be using s/w codecs . while zoom2 has h/w codecs . The logic
of  MMM framework is like if h/w codecs are not present it should look for
s/w codec . if zoom2 is not finding h/w codec for my audio/3gp file , it
should search for s/w codec and play file , why does it fails with error ?

How to disable hardware acceleration of codecs ?

Please correct me If I am wrong .

Thanks :
