 When I try to view an image (any image) in the emulator, I get a pop-
up with the following message:

"Sorry!  The application Camera (process has
stopped unexpectedly.  Please try again."

Again, all I am trying to do is view an image.  Any suggestions?

Could you define "view an image"? What exactly are you doing?

Cant view images

 I mounted a SD card in the emulator; using the following command:
emulator -sdcard <file>

And then pushed JPEG images to it; using the following command:
adb push <local> <remote>

I am able to view these image's *thumbnails* fine in the Picture
application.  However, when I click on the thumbnail to view the
image, the emulator fails and attaches the pop-up I mentioned in my
original post.

 Errr.  Now I get this error message in Eclipse's Console when I try to
run my application.

"... Failed to upload Zeal Project.apk on 'emulator-5554': No space
left on device"

I only have one third party application installed on the emulator and
23MB of pictures on a 1gig SD card.

 The culprit, 'Android SDK: android-sdk-windows-1.0_r2'.
The solution, use 'Android SDK: android-sdk-windows-1.0_r1'.

I just downloaded 'release 1', and placed it in the same directory as
'release 2'.  Then changed my setting in Eclipse and now I am able to
view the images.

Unless I didn't configure r2 or I am unaware of its limitations; then
in my opinion, it is the culprit until proven otherwise.

i am having the same error when i try to open any image in the
Pictures directory.

i actually want crop funtion like

Intent i = new Intent("");

which is giving me the same error as it is related to the above

is this bug in sdk-r2 or do we have any other solution?

 Try running "adb logcat" when the emulator is running. It should tell
you the problem, or at least where the problem lies...

1. Programatically change the color of layout

Hello All,
I am trying to programatically change the layout color but of a
relative layout (tried Linear layout but didn't change), but cannot
change it.

Also trying to debug the app doesn't help, there was not message
related to my TAG.

the application stood still after layout was colored initially.

"rellay" is id of Relative Layout.

package com.test.intentdemo;

import android.os.Bundle;
//import android.os.SystemClock;
import android.widget.RelativeLayout;
import android.util.*;
import java.lang.Thread;

public class intentDemo extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    RelativeLayout lLayout;
    public static final String TAG="MyActivity";
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        lLayout = (RelativeLayout) findViewById(;
        if (Log.isLoggable(TAG,0))
                Log.e(TAG,"ERROR BEFORE");
                Log.i(TAG,"INFO BEFORE");
                Log.d(TAG,"DEBUG BEFORE");

                                catch (Exception e)

                Log.e(TAG,"ERROR AFTER");
                Log.i(TAG,"INFO AFTER");
                Log.d(TAG,"DEBUG AFTER");

Any help regarding this would be helpful.



2. updating problem in eclipse

i have everything installed fine in helios on windows up to SDK
platform 2.3.3 api 10 revision 1, but when i try updating to sdk 3.0,
api 11 revision 1, i get the message that a folder failed to be
renamed or moved. the message box says the problem is typically caused
by a program using the file or by anti-virus software, which should be
disabled. so, i disabled everything in norton 360, and ie is closed,
but the problem still occurs. i get the same problem on a couple of
the development tools and a few of the google apis.

any suggestions?
