Unfortunately, this feature is not supported in the sdk.

 Is there any chance that it's gonna be supported in the final sdk?
Think there are many applications that would profit from this

 No, this isn't going to be supported in the final version for legal reasons.

 A function preload(GeoPoint p1, GeoPoint p2, GeoPoint p3, GeoPoint p4)
would be useful that preloads the whole area inside the rectangle
defined by  p1,p2,p3,p4 ....

1. Nested Table layout not showing

Hi all,

in my view i have the need to a somewhat different layout. It needs to
display a table within each row a cell for a thumbnail and a cell for
displaying a title and a description. The title and description should
be displayed on top of eachother, so something like:

|                  |
title                                                |
|    thumb     |    description                                     |
|                                                         |

In this case i thought i'd use a nested table layout:

TableLayout tl = (TableLayout) findViewById(;

int i=0;
for (FeedMessage message : f.getMessages()) {
        // Create a TableRow and give it an ID
            TableRow tr = new TableRow(this);
            tr.setLayoutParams(new TableLayout.LayoutParams(

            // setup a new table for the title and the description
            TableLayout table = new TableLayout(this);
            table.setLayoutParams(new TableRow.LayoutParams(

            // setup the rows for the textviews
            TableRow titleRow = new TableRow(this);
            TableRow descriptionRow = new TableRow(this);

            // construct the views
            TextView titleView = getTitleView(message);
            TextView descriptionView = getDescriptionView(message);
            ImageView thumbView = (ImageView) getThumbView(message);




I get no exceptions, messages are real objects, but the table just
ain't displaying. Any thoughts?




2. Background Service is not working.

Hello. i wish to use implement Service in my application to display a
message on the screen. This service should run while my application is
running. But right now, i just want to test the service function and
the Service doesn't seem to work well.

In the main java file, i call startService(new Intent

And the code is as below.

package com.example.helloandroid;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.IBinder;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class testing extends Service{

    public void onCreate() {
                Toast mToast = Toast.makeText(this, R.string.app_name,

        public IBinder onBind(Intent arg0) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                return null;


Why it isn't displaying the Toast message? Can anyone help please!!!
