AutoCompleteTextView and ArrayAdapter with async update

 I have an AutoCompleteTextView using an ArrayAdapter for its data.  I
am trying to asynchronously update the ArrayAdapter, but if there is
text typed into the AutoCompleteTextView the ArrayAdapter will not
update until the text in the AutoCompleteTextView changes.

for example;

actv = AutoCompleteTextView
aa = ArrayAdapter

1) start the application
2) getCount on aa = 0
3) add on aa
4) getCount on aa = 1
5) type "r" into actv
6) getCount on aa = 1
7) add on aa
8) getCount on aa = 1
9) add on aa
10) getCount on aa = 1
11) type "e" into actv
12) getCount on aa = 3

How can I force an update of the data?  I am doing an async update
because I am getting the values to auto complete from a REST call.  I
even tested this manually just by adding two buttons to the Activity
along with the ACTV (one to show me the count and one to add an item).

I tried notifyDataSetChanged on the ArrayAdapter, but that doesn't
seem to do anything.

Hi all,

I have been searching for the source code for VpnServices.apk - trying
to understand just how this VPN application is implemented such that
root permissions are not required.
I think it is part of the core.jar but the only reference I can find
to it in the Android tree is

Could someone point me in the right direction and/or explain how the

2. Not running in a graphics capable


I compiled a application for ARM board.
The configed vedio driver is framebuffer,and I run it on the AT9261 board.
The error log is

 [0x00004000] FATAL : SYSERR : SERVER :: Not running in a graphics capable
console, and unable to find one : Invalid argument
[s_video_helper_console_open (console.c:176)]

I checked the source and find the error point.

 if (ioctl(s_video_helper_console.fd, VT_OPENQRY, & < 0) {        //debugf(DSER | DSYS | DFAT,
"s_video_helper_console.fd fail");

             goto error;      }
Is there anything wrong with the kernel config or the file system?
Can you give me some advice to solve this issue.

Thanks a lot.
