 Hey everyone..... I noticed something odd. I have a listview with
custom BaseAdapter, and getView() inflates a layout. On 1.6 SDK (I've
been developing on a G1), if I set android:clickable="true" on the
layout, then the item is NOT clickable (but otherwise the item is
clickable). Is this the correct behavior? It seems backwards to me.

Furthermore, no matter now matter how i set android:clickable for the
same layouts using 2.2 SDK (run using emulator), the layout always is
clickable... eh? I'm really bothered by this.

 How do you know it isn't clickable?  Did you try adding an onClick

Just because a view is clickable, does NOT mean it will change
background colors when clicked.  You have to use <state> to change the
backgrounds when something is focused, pressed, etc.

2. IllegalArgumentException calling Surface.unlockCanvasAndPost ?

Hi All,

In my app, I have the following code (see below). In the market, under
Errors, I see that the following exception was reported:
at android.view.Surface.unlockCanvasAndPost(Native Method)

Looking at android's code, I could not understand what could go wrong,
as apparently unlocalCancasAndPost of Surface class, which is called
by BaseSurfaceHolder 179 is native.

Can anyone help?

while (run) {
      long currentTime = System.currentTimeMillis();

      try {
        c = surfaceHolder.lockCanvas(null);
        if (c != null) {
          synchronized (this.surfaceHolder) {
            update(c, currentTime);
      } finally {
        if (c != null) {

      synchronized (this) {
        if (wait) {
          try {
          } catch (Exception e) {
