 Hi everyone,
It's the first time I post here, so I hope I'll be clear for my
problem.

I'm developing a real-time informations about train. The application
will connect to a XML plateform that will give the next trains with a
station given.
I'm a beginner in Android development, and I'm stuck to a class-
problem (I think...).

In details, the problem is, when I start the application, the user get
a screen with 2 buttons, one of them get the user to a new screen with
stations list. But, my problem is, I can't put buttons and lists in
the same class.
I explain, to get a list on the screen, I have to put :
"public class NextTrain extends ListActivity {"
but the buttons function doesn't work (the app crashs).
By the way, if I put
"public class NextTrain extends Activity {"
the buttons works but not the list (no crash, but the screen doesn't
display anything).

Can you help me ?
Thanks in advance.

1. virtual keyboard & EditText

Hi

I had an EditText that was working perfectly on the emulator.
Now that I am doing test with the htc magic (which has a virtual
keyboard) is giving me some problems:

this is the code that I use:

myEditText.setOnKeyListener(new View.OnKeyListener()
{
  public boolean onKey(View arg0, int arg1, KeyEvent arg2)
  {
     Log.i("activity","hello!");
     /*
         do something...
     */
  }

}

The problem is that the inner function onKey() is only called() AFTER
the virtual keyboard is hidden, and for some reasons, I want to know
this as soon as possible...

does anybody knows how can I sort this out?

Thanks

2. Why the Android docs are inconsistent?

I have looking for something and found these inconsistencies in the
online documentation

This is a snippet from FAQ section
http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/faq/commontasks.html#broadcastreceivers
        NotificationManager nm = (NotificationManager)
        context.getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
        nm.notifyWithText(R.id.alarm,
                          "Alarm!!!",
                          NotificationManager.LENGTH_SHORT,
                          null);

Now when I try to find the 'notifyWithText' api, I could not find it.

Another example is IntentReciever. I just want to know is this class
exists? As I found code in this forum itself using IntentReciever, but
I cant find this class in the doc.

And why standard intents like action
android:name="android.provider.Telephony.SMS_RECEIVED are not
documented?
