1. Facedetector issue

Hey guys,

I have a problem here, I used the facedetector tutorial provided by
Google and got it working. Once I did this I tried creating a menu
that allows a user to take a picture and then once taken, choose an
image to be recognized. The problem arises with the face detection. I
can display the image from the gallery but when I try and recognize a
face within the image it doesn't work.

The code below shows my code;


   public void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub

             canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, 0, 0, null);

             Paint myPaint = new Paint();

             for(int i=0; i < numberOfFaceDetected; i++)
              Face face = myFace[i];
              PointF myMidPoint = new PointF();
              myEyesDistance = face.eyesDistance();
                (int)(myMidPoint.x - myEyesDistance),
                (int)(myMidPoint.y - myEyesDistance),
                (int)(myMidPoint.x + myEyesDistance),
                (int)(myMidPoint.y + myEyesDistance),

       public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode,
data) {

               if (requestCode == ACTIVITY_SELECT_IMAGE && resultCode
                       try {
                               Uri currImageURI = data.getData();
                               String[] proj = { Images.Media.DATA,
Images.Media.ORIENTATION };
                               Cursor cursor =
managedQuery(currImageURI, proj, null, null,null);
                               int columnIndex =
                               mCurrentImagePath =
BitmapFactoryOptionsbfo = new
BitmapFactoryOptionsbfo.inPreferredConfig =
                               Bitmap bitmap =
                               int width = bitmap.getWidth();
                               int height = bitmap.getHeight();
                               myFace = new
                               myFaceDetect = new FaceDetector(width,
height, numberOfFace);
                               numberOfFaceDetected =
myFaceDetect.findFaces(bitmap, myFace);


                        catch (Exception e) {
