1. about display frame with surfaceflinger


      I have implemented dislay frame with pushbuffer type of
surfaceflinger on SDK1.0.
      1. Creat a surface holder and pass the surface to JNI;
      2. Declare memerybase and call registerbuffers() in JNI to init
      3. Copy local frame into memerybase;
      4. Call postbuffer() to display.
      But when migrate my code on the SDK1.5, it cannot work well.
There are some error  as following "Permission failure:
android.permission.ACCESS_SURFACE_FLINGER ", and i have declare the
"android.permission.ACCESS_SURFACE_FLINGER" in my
      Why and how can i solve it?

Best Regards


2. Passing pointer to AsyncTask that changes GUI to onRetainNonConfigurationInstance?

Good morning,

I'm a little confused how to correctly handle tasks (AsyncTask) when
the screen orientates.

The documentation states that the object passed to
onRetainNonConfigurationInstance should have no refererence to the
destroyed activity/context. When i pass a pointer to a AsyncTask it
shouldn't have such a reference.

But in the AsyncTask onPostExecute() method (which is executed in the
UI thread) the result of the task should be displayed in the fields of
a activity.

How can i display the result of a AsyncTask in a activity when i may
not use anything that references to the destroyed activity?

For example i can't pass my EditBox to the constructor of the
AsyncTask, because it is a reference to the activity that will be
destroyed, but i do want to put the result of the task in that
EditBox ;-)

I buzzles me.

One solution comes in mind and that is to save the pointer to the task
in onRetainNonConfigurationInstance() and restore it in onCreate().
Then call a method on the task class and pass a pointer to the new
EditBox. But it isn't 100% save, cause while the screen is rotating
(things are destroyed/created) the task might finish and cause
unpredictable results.

Can anybody give me advice on this subject?

Kind regards,
