Confused over activities and creating new tasks

 Hi folks,

I'm launching a wizard as a series of views. (dialog theme) I need the user
to be able to step back and forth through the series of views. When the
final step is completed I'd like to return the to the original view that
launched this new task. (i.e. close the series of dialogs) The only way I've
gotten this to work is to call finish() on each dialog before starting the
activity of the next step. (that rules out being able to navigate back)

I've tried launching the initial intent with Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK
as well as setting a taskAffinity for the views involved to no avail.

Any insight appreciated,

 I'd implement a wizard using ViewFlipper in a single activity,
personally. Creating a reusable wizard component is yet another of the
18,000 items on my to-do list...

1. Creating a Custom Expanded View in Code

I'm coding an SDK and I want to use a custom expanded view for the
notification area.
Is it possible to do that in Java code, without any reference to any
Resource? (This is because resources cannot be included in an SDK)

A RemoteView is usually created like this:

RemoteViews contentView = new RemoteViews(getPackageName(),

Can I create a RemoteView from I layout that I create with Java code?
Any other solutions?


2. libgdx drag and drop sprite

Hi everyone,

I am making a game in which there are a few non animated sprites on the
screen. The sprites are drawn with the xml file. I am using libgdx as the
game engine. I cannot seem to find any tutorial on dragging and dropping
these sprites. Does any one know if there is a pre made function to
implement this. Also is drawing the sprite through code going to be better?
