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. Troubles with hierarchyviewer


I can't figure out how to acces to the view hierarchy through
hierarchyviewer :

- I start hierarchyviewer, I select my device in the "device panel",
- And when I press start the terminal dispalys :

protocol = 2
version = 2

but nothing else appends.

"Stop Servers", "Refresh Windows", "Devices" and "Load View Hierarchy"
buttons remains unavailable.
Did i do smthg wrong ?




2. TaskAffinity causes new instance being created when startActivity

I have a problem about taskAffinity of Activity.
Activities A and B with the same taskAffinity.

A starts B with FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK and the B starts A with
Dumpsys activity of system gives us task stack like below:


According to SDK's reference to FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK, the result is
supposed to be like below:
TOP -> A

If we did not set taskAffinity, A will not be created again but in
different task stack from B. (A and B are in different Apps)

After a little more research, we found FLAG_ACTIVITY_REORDER_TO_FRONT
is what we want.

My question is whether SDK' reference to FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK is
