I managed to install the various versions of Android on Eclipse and
have been running APiDemos and HelloAndroid but I noticed that make
them work for the Internet connection must be active in the sense that
if i am not connected the emulator does not display anything. I wanted
to know if i can test the code of the programs that are written
offline or must be necessarily connected to the Internet.
thanks for any replies

1. Accessing elements of a widget from the AppWidgetProvider

Wow, that's terrible news! Just to make sure I'm understanding you
correctly, you mean that there's no way to, say, change the image in
an ImageView or change the color of a Button programmatically?



2. Application use of Haptics (When to enable/disable - minimizing confusion annoyance)

Is there a general guideline for application developers about when to
disable haptic responses?  I know there are ways to enable/disable
long-press haptics, but if an application was created to use haptic
feedback for other events are there guidelines that application
developers should follow?

For example, if the user was to go into Settings->Sound & display ->
Haptic and set that to OFF, should all applications refer to this
setting as a rule of thumb?  From and end user point of view, I would
like to have global control of haptic feedback especially if I find it
to be annoying.  I have seen several postings in the android forums
looking for a "global override" to haptic responses.  Ultimately, I
think it is a question of should each application provide a menu to
enable/disable haptic support, or should this be more of a global
Setting for the device.  I personally feel applications should refer
to the global setting, but would like to get feedback from other
developers about this.
