 It's a bug. I don't know if it's fixed in Cupcake, but in 1.1 and 1.0
this does not work. The icon will always be on the left.

 It's not a bug, you need to request all features before setContentView().

1. automatic start using Alaram Manager problem

I created one application to start application After particular time
interval. My application working fine but it does not do particular
after particular time. I mean it does not used to start automatically
after the time which i set in AlaramManager.

My coding and xml file is as below.

The following is the code of my mail class which extends Activity. I
have done following thing in it


Intent intent = new Intent(Lalu_Android.this, OneShotAlarm.class);
PendingIntent sender = PendingIntent.getBroadcast(Lalu_Android.this,
0, intent, 0);

// We want the alarm to go off 30 seconds from now.
Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
calendar.add(Calendar.SECOND, 15);

// Schedule the alarm!
AlarmManager am = (AlarmManager)getSystemService(ALARM_SERVICE);
am.set(AlarmManager.RTC_WAKEUP, calendar.getTimeInMillis(), sender);

catch(Exception e)

tv.setText("Url not called successfully");


The following is a class which extends BroadcastReceiver . Which
be invoked after particular time.

public class OneShotAlarm extends BroadcastReceiver
//Lalu_Android la=new Lalu_Android();
CallUrl ca;

//TextView tv = new TextView();
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
System.out.println("In one shot alaram");
Toast.makeText(context, "Alaram", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
ca=new CallUrl();
//Toast.makeText(context, R.string.one_shot_received,
/*Intent smsIntent = new Intent();
//la. */

The CallUrl is a another class which i want to execute its method
onCreate() when application starts by AlaramManager so i create the
object of it in the OneShotAlaram.

The following my xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon"
<activity android:name=".Lalu_Android"
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
<receiver android:name=".OneShotAlarm" />


I am in the big trouble i hope some one will reply me as early as

2. 鈼廇bout AndroidSurfaceOutput use PVPlayer as parameter in cupcake

In Cupcake branch:

The constructor of AndroidSurfaceOutput add a paramether PVPlayer. It
mean AndroidSurfaceOutput need know who is using this output.

path : external/opencore/android/android_surface_output.cpp
in about 1041
    // update app
    mPvPlayer->sendEvent(MEDIA_SET_VIDEO_SIZE, displayWidth,

The displayWidth and displayHeight is the display size  set by

It mean when the displaysize is  set , The AndroidSurfaceOutput need
notify the PVPlayer.
I have 3 question about it :
1.  AndroidSurfaceOutput is designed a passive output , so it looks
strange .

2.  In original design PVPlay will decode using the video size ,
AndroidSurfaceOutput work as output device , it may resize it to
display size.
So when PVPlay need know the display size ?
Do it only used by mediaplayer App ?

3. If the Surface is using hardware overlay , Does it has something
different for it ?
