 Hi,
I have an app widget, I want to change the background drawable of
LinearLayout while in runtime, how can I do that? I have tried using
XmlResourceParser
as
XmlResourceParser p = getResources().getLayout(R.layout.main);
p.next();
p.nextToken();

it takes me to linearlayout but when I issue
p.getProperty("background"); it returns null? what should I use instead of
background here? or is there any other way to change wiget's background at
runtime.

Thank You,
Abdul Mateen.

1. <uses-feature> for groups of items

The latest blog post 
http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2010/10/five-steps-to-future-hardware-happiness.html
talks about using the uses-feature to future proof your apps.

However, say you have a game that is controlled either by the
accelerometer, or by a physical keyboard.  I can't see anyway of
indicating that you must have one or the other.  So you still aren't
future proofed for devices that are touch screen only.

Is this coming, or did I miss something?
