You are missing the point. Unless you have evidence that your alarms go
off on devices other than your own, it may simply be a matter of some
WakeLock being wedged on your own device.

1. selecting text

Hi,
I want the user to be able to select text from the screen..much like
we do when we copy paste from one document to another. Is there an
easy way to do this? I need to know the exact string selected by the
user.

Thanks,
Sylvester

2. referring to res-id across packages

Hi:

  In the example
http://code.google.com/android/samples/ApiDemos/src/com/google/android/samples/view/LabelView.html
refers to
http://code.google.com/android/samples/ApiDemos/res/layout/custom_view_1.html

In java file, I see code to access new derived attributes using
"R.styleable.LabelView_textColor"

Can I access "android:background" in Java??
Given that the LabelView resides in a different package, what is the
programmatic way to access android:background in java code?  Is this
prohibited?

thanks
Jey
