 Hi,
is it possible to connect the Android phone to PC via bluetooth or
wifi?

I want the same functionality that USB cable gives me, but wireless.
Is that possible?

Thanks.

 Yeah, use swiFTP ( http://code.google.com/p/swiftp/ ). Available on the
market.

Connecting to PC using bluetooth or wifi?

 swiFTP does't help much unless you can open a connection.

Connecting to a PC via bluetooth with API 1.5 / Cupcake: no, not
possible. Via WiFi, yes *provided* you go through a WiFi access point.
API 1.5 does not support ad-hoc WiFi networking which would let the
device talk directly to a PC.  Android is pretty poor on this right
now, but the good news is that it's only a firmware (not hardware)
limitation which I really hope will be resolved soon (in Donut?)

Regarding the bluetooth: it may be possible to exchange data with a PC
if the PC assumes an audio profile and you exchange data masquarading
as an audio stream (either directly bit-for-bit, or modulating the
audio with a software modem). I don't know enough about bluetooth
profiles to say if this is possible. It certainly wouldn't be easy. I
assume the bluetooth API will be considerably enhanced real soon, so
best wait I think.

Works like a charm for me!

I do go through the access point. You mentioned that

Can you please elaborate? How can I do it? swiFTP gives me FTP server.
What does Cupcake out of the box give me?

Thanks.

1. Pushing up views above soft keyboard

hi,

I am trying to push up the views in my activity whenever a soft
keyboard comes up. I have been partially successful in this, except
that certain views remain hidden behind the soft keyboard.

My XML looks like the below. I am specifying the last RelativeLayout
RL3 containing buttons with the attribute:
android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" so that they stay above the
soft keyboard when it comes up. However. the scrollview SV1 which is
above the last RelativeLayout RL3 is not scrolling up completely and
so a part of the scroll view remains hidden behind the soft keyboard.
I have tried to set paddingBottom=70px but that still does not make
the scroll view go up. Any ideas why this is happening?

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/
android"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"

            android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
            android:layout_centerInParent="true"/>

        <Button android:id="@+id/BT2"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
            android:layout_centerInParent="true"/>

    </RelativeLayout>

</RelativeLayout>

2. help: Multiple broadcast receivers in the same process: Do they all run in the main thread??

The application fundamentals page at the android site states that

"By default, all components of the application run in that process and thread"

Is this true for a broadcast receiver as well?

if I have multiple broadcast receivers in a single apk file and do
they all run on the main thread one after the other??

Appreciate looking into this
Thanks
Satya
