I have a question for widget support on Android. I found clock in the
android destop, and want to know if it is a widget or application
(Activity)? If it is a widget, what about the widget engine (runing
enviroment) of android?

 In my opnion, widget on Android is not truely widget (based on Web
technology and compatible). Android widget just looks like widget, but
developped by JAVA, and there is no running environment (like Google
Gadgets, Nokia WRT, Apple Dashboard, etc) on it now.

I want to know if Google has any plan to transplant Google Gadgets on
Android in recent period? Only if Android has Gadgets can widget run
on Android.

Something's got to be different.

Open and scan for your view id there, check to see if maybe you have a close sounding ID, or there is a capitalization difference. -- Kostya 26.07.2010 21:05, Bret Foreman :
I mistyped. The file path is actually res/layout-land. The exception is happening when I call findViewById for one particular button. I stared at the two xml files as carefully as I could and the ID of that button is identical in both files. Other buttons are not causing any trouble. To add to the frustration, the logcat does not show the exception, though the system does a Force-Close at the exact point of calling findViewById for that button in the de{*filter*}.
