 Hi there,
I am trying to start a service from the BroadcastReceiver, but I keep
getting the startService line marked as an error (The constructor
Intent(alarmReceiver, Class<aService>) is undefined)

public class alarmReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver{

        NotificationManager notifMgr;

        private static final int NOTIFICATION_ID = 0;

        public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {

                startService(new Intent(this,aService.class));

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 A BroadcastReceiver is not a Context and so does not have a
startService() method. Call startService() on the Context supplied to
the onReceive() method.

2. Status bar expanded dialog and Search dialog will not cover entire screen in 1.6r1?

Status bar expanded dialog and Search dialog will not cover the entire
screen if we are running the emulator with 480x800 skin with default
dpi (160)?. But other applications runs in full screen.

But running with skin WVGA800 (or HVGA or WVGA854) displays both
status bar expanded and search dialog correctly. Am I missing
somethings here? or is it the expected behavior?. How can I make it
cover entire screen?
