Starting an AVD from a custom location

I want the android emulator to start a AVD from a non default location
using the following command:
./android-sdk-linux_86/tools/emulator -sysdir /opt/
development/.android/avd/ -avd AVD1.6_HTC_SD

The .android directory is a copy from the default .android directory
from my homefolder...

The emulator states the following:
emulator: ERROR: unknown virtual device name: 'AVD1.6_HTC_SD'
emulator: could not find virtual device named 'AVD1.6_HTC_SD'

Any ideas?

 -sysdir cannot be used with AVDs.

you can overide the location of the .android folder by setting an env

In your case, you should try:
$ ANDROID_SDK_HOME=/opt/development emulator -avd AVD1.6_HTC_SD

2. Display some part of HTML file in WebView

Hi All,

We have a large HTML which contents 1000's of lines. But we want to
show content of the HTML file that fits a
single screen.  We want provide a '>'  kind of to show the next
contents of the same HTML file.

Our objective is to only display the HTML contents that fits the
screen.Similar to reader application  For user, it seems there are
several pages.

Is there any way in which we can achieve this functionality. Whether
WebView has any function related to full fill the requirement.

Thanks and Regards,
