I want to start Android Emulator with internet support but am unable
to use the brower on the emulator, it seems like it is not connected.
This is the command am using to start the emulator

emulator -avd myavd -http-proxy :3100

Please note am using an IPAddress instead of machine name on my proxy
server name. Is this possible with the emulator?

Or what am i doing wrong?

Am using Android SDK 1.6

1. Update progressbar in custom dialog


is it possible to have a progressbar that is updated in realtime in a
custom dialog?
If so, how do I make it work?
At the moment I have made a custom dialog with onCreateDialog() and
onPrepareDialog() with a progressbar. I am using AsyncTask to update
the progressbar in the onProgressUpdate. This worked fine when the
progressbar was not in a dialog.
Where it force closes is when the line downloadBar is executed:

protected void onProgressUpdate(final Integer... values) {
                        Log.i("makemachine", "onProgressUpdate(): " +

Happy for any answers.


2. Some problem/question about resolutions

Hi all,

I'm loading the same png file 32X32 into the ImageView. When loading
from the URL stream, from drawable folder and from drawable-hdpi
folder getting 3 different displayed sizes of image. From drawable
it's "large", from drawable-hdpi - "medium", from stream - "small".

Can you please advise where is the "catch". I can understand  the
difference between drawable and drawable-hdpi but why from the stream
getting third size of the image which dispalyed as very very small

I'm using Motorola XT701 and appropriate WVGA845 build in emulator
skin and getting the same results.

Thanks in advance,
