I am loading a listview dynamically. I have set a .9.png image as row
background image. The main purpose of using .9.png image was to extend
the height of the image dynamically according to the contents of the

But, the image is not getting extended. The contents which can be
displayed within the height of the row are being displayed and the
rest are being cut.

Can someone let me know a proper way of doing this?

1. Content Providers and Network Requests

As per the subject, i am making an app that is dependent on data that
comes from a network request.
I was using the UserTask class (Made by Mr. Romain Guy) to make the
network calls and get my data and everything worked.

But now, i want the data from this app to be available to other apps
as well and thus, the only way that data could be shared between
applications is by using a content provider (thats what i have read so

My question was: Is it possible to use a thread or the UserTask class
inside a Content Provider and if yes, then since the request to the
server can take a long time, how do we change the query method of the
content provider to handle such a delay as it is suppose to return a
Cursor object.

In my initial approach, i was using a listener that took care of
updating the Application when the data was available but i am not
aware of a way to use a listener with a Content Provider.

Any help or ideas would be helpful.

2. network monitoring information access


I am trying to find the exact location of networking event related
information on an Android based device.

I accessed the emulator (./adb shell), and changed to the dev
directory (cd /dev).

I thought this would be the right place to start. However, it does not
appear to be the case, or I am using the wrong path in my application
where I use the code listed below to access files in /dev.

I would appreciate it if someone could help me identify the files
containing networking related information, and their full path.
