 It's supposed to scale the size of fonts defined using the "sp" unit.
But this is not exposed to the user not really supported at the

1. Widget is not removed after the application is uninstalled

Hi google team. I face an issue with my custom android widget. The
widget is working ok, but after I uninstall my application the widget
disappears and the "Problem loading widget" is displayed. Is this an
android bug or I an not doing something right? Also should this be
handled by the OS? Thanks


2. Can I compile against this SDK? They give me an .apk that installs...

I went to and got their 'sdk' for barcode scanning.
I get the normal tree, and do an android update project to get the
build.xml.  When I try to build, I see that I don't seem to have
all of the source:

    [javac] Compiling 3 source files to 
    [javac] /home/toby/bart/ScannerSDK.Android/Demo/src/com/biggu/scannerdemo/ package does not exist

    [javac] import;

I notice that under the lib directory, there is a .jar file called
biggu_scanner-1.1.0.jar.  Unzipping that, I find files like:

 inflating: com/biggu/barcodescanner/client/android/CaptureActivityHandler.class
  inflating: com/biggu/barcodescanner/client/android/CaptureActivity$1.class

So I guess I'm missing including that .jar file?  Is there something that I need
to do in order to include the classes in the .jar file in the build?
