Cool, me too! Well, mostly buses, but same diff.

Sure you can.

No, you don't HAVE to, but extending ListActivity does simplify things if
your activity is predominantly list-oriented.

Crashes HOW? We can't read your mind (or code).

 By the way, if I put
"public class NextTrain extends Activity {"

Did you actually add a ListView to the Activity?

I can try.
If you extend ListActivity you can add a header view to your ListView
containing your two buttons.
Alternatively if you extend Activity, you can create a layout with your two
buttons and a ListView.

You're welcome in advance.

1. MyLocationOverlay and enableMyLocation()

Hey Guys,

I've got a bit of a weird issue here.

In my activity, I've got MyLocationOverlay on top of my map and
enableMyLocation() in my onResume function. Funny thing is that when I
go to run the app in debug, enableMyLocation() returns false. I'm
targeting the Google Platform, and my Google Maps application
successfully takes location data from DDMS.

Can anybody think of a reason why enableMyLocation() would always
return false?



2. using attrs.xml

i was wondering if anyone could give me hints on this one:
i created a new attrs.xml that adds some functionality to the soft keyboard
sample code.

i added: <attr name="keysImg" format="reference" /> to:

<declare-styleable name="Keyboard">
        <!-- Default width of a key, in pixels or percentage of display
width -->
        <attr name="keyWidth" format="dimension|fraction" />
        <!-- Default height of a key, in pixels or percentage of display
width -->
        <attr name="keyHeight" format="dimension|fraction" />
        <!-- Default horizontal gap between keys -->
        <attr name="horizontalGap" format="dimension|fraction" />
        <!-- Default vertical gap between rows of keys -->
        <attr name="verticalGap" format="dimension|fraction" />
         <!-- The global image used to crop keys from  -->
        <attr name="keysImg" format="reference" />

and added: <attr name="keysImgTemp" format="reference" /> to:
<declare-styleable name="Keyboard_Key">
<attr name="keyIcon" format="reference" />
<attr name="keysImgTemp" format="reference" />

in the xml file the data look like this:
<Keyboard xmlns:android=""
and the key looks like this:
<Key android:codes="49" android:keyIcon="@drawable/sym_keyboard_shift"

in my code i try to reference these values
 TypedArray a1 = res.obtainAttributes(Xml.asAttributeSet(parser),
R.styleable.Keyboard);//get all attrs for the keyboard as defined in
THIS DOESN'T WORK! (has null value)
BitmapDrawable orgBmpDraw=

TypedArray a = res.obtainAttributes(Xml.asAttributeSet(parser),
BitmapDrawable orgBmpDraw=
//THIS DOESN'T WORK - has null value
BitmapDrawable orgBmpDraw=

what am i missing here?
