 I have a widgett that supports for many languages, but if the user change
the language in Settings, my widget don't update.. Only works, if I close it
and open again, or rebook the handset..
Someone have any suggestion for me to solve this?



Update language in Widget

I suspect that there is no automatic answer.

Android applications can find out about language changes via
onConfigurationChanged() (in Activity or Service) or the
ACTION_CONFIGURATION_CHANGED broadcast Intent. That Intent, though, must
be registered via registerReceiver() from a running component, making it
less than useful. Since you (hopefully) do not have a Service running
all the time in support of the app widget, the app widget itself cannot
use any of these.

You might wish to file a feature request on  http://b.android.com  -- I
would think that app widgets should be notified of configuration
changes, somehow, to handle your situation.

Beyond that, you could add a "refresh" button to the widget, or
otherwise allow them to tap something that, among other things, will
pick up the new language.

And, if you are lucky, somebody else will have a better idea...

2. Search Market by Publisher Name

This link describes how to search the Android Market for apps using
various parameters:


I'm having a heck of a time figuring out how to format a link for my
apps published by my company using this format. For searching by
developer name, the doc says to use the following format:

market://search?q=pub:<Developer Name>

It also says it returns exact matches only. My publisher name is
"Polyclef Software".

I guess I'm wondering why Google can't make a market search feature
that searches for substrings in the publisher's name, but aside from
that, how am I supposed to format the link? Neither of the following

market://search?q=pub:Polyclef Software

I've tried a number of variations now and nothing works. Any ideas?
