Adding links to an email message

 Hello all,

I was wondering if it is possible to hook into the gmail and email
applications and check to see if it contains text that matches a
regular expression, and if it does, make that text into a link with a
URI that would open my application. What i am thinking of is similar
to how the gmail application can detect a web address or phone number
and make it a link. Is something like this possible?

Thank you,

 You cannot hook into another application. You can only share data
through ContentProviders. But I don't think Gmail and other email apps
would expose their data to other apps. It doesn't make sense as well.

Thanks and Regards,

1. Hi all. This question is really annoying. Hope someone can come up with some advice. About C2DM

Hi there:

This problem has been confusing me for hours.
I try to use google push to get register to a certain server.
But first step is to get register_id, right? is the email address that I use to apply for google

And the rest of the codes, are the same as in Android C2DM tutorial.
Besides, I already set up my Androidmanifest file.

The following is part of the code. I try to use these codes to get
register_id first.

   Intent registrationIntent = new Intent(

            registrationIntent.putExtra("app", PendingIntent.getBroadcast(
this, 0, new Intent(), 0));

            registrationIntent.putExtra("sender", "");



But when I run my program, it stills says the program stopped unexpectedly.

So, does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks a million.


2. Phantom appwidgets


There are two ways to create "phantom" widgets:

- try to add a new widget, configuration screen appears, canceling
widget creation
- try to add a new widget, configuration screen appears, save the
widget, there is no place in home screen, canceling

After these steps a new appwidget was created and exists in the
background, but it isn't visible anywhere.
In the first case appwidget isn't configured, but in the second it is.

When I get widgets for my provider this appwidget is returned.

Nor the app and the user can remove this appwidget.

What cause this bug? The OS itself?

What can I do to get rid of these widgets without uninstalling my app?
