 Is there a way to launch my app from eclipse in landscape mode on the
emulator? Or am I doomed to having it launch in portrait, so eclipse
will build and deploy my app, then launching a landscape emulator from
the command line?

Can't you just use <Ctrl>-<F12> to toggle between portrait and landscape?

 Hi droozen,

In Eclipse do the following.

Select your project
Go to Run > Run Configuration > Then select the "Target" tab.
under "Emulator Launch Parameters" select the "Screen Size" and set
the drop down to "HVGA-P".

I just tested this and it worked for me, my app started in Landscape

Good luck.

 Try Ctrl + F11. May be this is what you need.

1. add new sensor?

I know the Android SDK provieds many Sensor class to use
to get data or do something.

I already verified my driver of sensor to get data
successfully under linux kernel-2.6.29

I use I2C protocol to communication with my device,
so I put sensor code under drivers/i2c/chips

NOW I want to add my sensor into Android and I hope
to link Android Sensor class with my device to reduce
develop my application.

How to do for this goal?
Could I need to modify application framework or Libraries
or another driver type for new device?
I big your help


2. Problem with pending intent with notification

Hello Friends, I am developing some application, in that I have
implemented notification for message receiving. but when I click on
notification it doesn't show desired intent. the code for that is as

public void notifyUser(String str, Context context, long receivedSms)
String convertedStr = "abc";
NotificationManager noteManager = (NotificationManager) context
Notification note = new Notification(R.drawable.icon,
"Message Received", System.currentTimeMillis());
note.defaults = Notification.DEFAULT_LIGHTS;
Intent showSms = new Intent();
PendingIntent contentIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0,
showSms, 0);
if (receivedSms == 1) {
note.setLatestEventInfo(context, "SMS in Lango", convertedStr,
} else if (receivedSms > 1) {
note.setLatestEventInfo(context, "SMS in Lango", Long
.toString(receivedSms + 1)
+ " Messages unread", contentIntent);
notificationVar = true;
noteManager.notify(R.layout.buddy_list, note);

Is there any problem in code???
The manifest file code for particular class as under.

<receiver android:name=".SmsReceiver">
<action android:name="android.provider.Telephony.SMS_RECEIVED"
class=".BuddyListActivity"/> />
