Using contacts (again)

 Is it possible to create a generic android application that uses
contacts (though a contentResolver) that will run on all android
versions > 1.5 ?

I have backward compatibility issues where f.i. my HTC Hero which is
upgraded to Android 2.1 is not able to use the People.CONTENT_URI even
though this is meant to be deprecated - not unsupported!

If I include the new API style ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI
(with or without a check on the Build.SDK_VERSION to alternatively
load the old style URI - similar to the Businesscard example - )
I would still have to set up Eclipse to use the Android 2.1 libraries.
Would this application still run on an Android 1.5 device if I keep
the minsdkversion in the manifest at 3?

I would like to avoid having to branch my application, create 2
eclipse projects and release 2 different applications.

Any advice on this?

1. Button color - StateListDrawable question

I am allowing the user to change the color of the buttons. I want to
maintain the default drawables used for focused and onPressed state
and apply the color only when the button is neither  pressed nor

I am currently achieving this by checking the state of the view in
onDraw() on the button class and apply the color filter if it is
neither pressed or focused, else I am passing null to color filter.

Is there any easier way of doing this? Is there a way to get the
default StateListDrawable of the button and change only the desired
state drawable. I have too many views in my layout and I am trying to
reduce any work done in onDraw method as it is slows down the



2. testing NDK on HTC Magic

Hello everybody.

I'm trying to port an app using NDK in order to be capable of reusing
the C code of the application.

starting to work with the libs, i tested "bitmap-plasma" from the
sample projs and i'ts working OK
in the emulator (target 2.2), but when uploaded to the device (HTC
Magic. system. 1.5) the de{*filter*}
gives exception saying the native lib was not loaded.
I'm using Eclipse for the android proj. and compiling the native code
with cygwin make. the ndk-version is r4.

i also tried the "hellojni" projects and that one works fine on the
device, so i'm thinking maybe there is some parameter in
bitmap-plasma that is causing problems??

please any help on what is causing this and how can i fix it. Thank
you very much!.
