2. addToMyContactsGroup does not seem to work on HTC Hero

I have made some experiments here and found that this labels google/
phone are not about grouping - there is undocumented "type" column in
the People table which seems to be responcible for this.


The following code:

final Cursor pcur = context.managedQuery(Contacts.People.CONTENT_URI,
                                null, null, null, null);
                while (pcur.moveToNext()) {
                        Log.d("#############", 
"**************************************");
                        for (int i = 0; i < pcur.getColumnCount(); i++) {
                                Log.d("#############", pcur.getColumnName(i) + 
"="
                                                + pcur.getString(i));

                        }
                }
                pcur.close();


Prints the following:

the "type" column value is '0' for contacts with "google label" and
'2' for contacts with "phone" label.

This could be fine - just set "type" column value to '2' when add
contact and it should appear with "phone" label in contact book:


public static final String CONTACT_TYPE = "type";
public static final int CONTACT_TYPE_GOOGLE = 0;
public static final int CONTACT_TYPE_PHONE = 2;

final ContentValues peopleValues = new ContentValues();
peopleValues.put(CONTACT_TYPE, CONTACT_TYPE_PHONE);

final Uri personUri = context.getContentResolver().insert(
                                Contacts.People.CONTENT_URI, peopleValues);
final long contactId = ContentUris.parseId(personUri);
Contacts.People.addToMyContactsGroup(context.getContentResolver(),
                                contactId);

but this code gives me the following exception:

What is wrong here?

3. Andrometer crash info

4. AudioRecord works with short but static with byte

5. GridView.getSelectedItemPosition() always returns -1

6. OpenGL fixed point vs. floating point

7. GridView.getSelectedItemPosition() always returns -1
