 Hello All!
Is it possible to be notified about general IO in system ?
For example I want to receive some file reading events and blinking
with some indicator...

1. Help with error in Android code


I am working on a simple application that, for now, just presents a
login page as the starting activity with username and password and a
login button. When you click on the login button, it starts a new
activity after verifying credentials. When I run the application in
the emulator, it stops unexpectedly without even showing the main
activity with this error message : The application ... has stopped
unexpectedly. Please try again later.

It seems that it is the code where I register a listener for the
button click that causes the crash because when I comment the code, at
leas the application starts normally. I can't find the error. Here's
my onCreate method where I register the listener:

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        Button loginButton = (Button) findViewById(;

        loginButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                public void onClick(View v) {
                        EditText usernameView = (EditText) findViewById
                        EditText passwordView = (EditText) findViewById
                        mUsername = usernameView.getText().toString();
                        mPassword = passwordView.getText().toString();
                        if (verifyLogin()) {

For now, verifyLogin() does nothing and just returns true. The callHome
() method just builds an intent, registers username and password as
extras and starts the other activity with the intent.

When I comment the setOnClickListener() call, I do not get the error.

Please what did I do wrong?

I run eclipse 3.5 with the ADT plugin on Windows Vista 64-bit.

DatePicker dpk = (DatePicker) findViewById(;

View.OnFocusChangeListener focusChangeListner = new

        public void   onFocusChange(View v,boolean hasFocus){
