Activity inside TabActivity doesn't work properly

 Hi All,

I have an activity named A which has TTS and service functions. It
works well if it is a single activity, but TTS and service are not
working if I put A into a TabActivity. I am not sure which part of the
program has problem. Maybe TabActivity have some effect for the
onActivityResult in A, thus TTS function not work.

Does anybody have idea to solve it?

Thanks

 There are quite a few things wrong with Activities inside a
TabActivity.  Avoid them at all cost, if you can.  You should be able
to refactor your code to the point where they are not needed.

 Should I put the onActivityResult in TabActivity instead of A activity? 
I really need them in the activity but I just want to put the acitivity 
inside a tab, so that I got problem.

 I have yet to hear of an example where someone was able to successfully put
activities inside a TabActivity.  Why it is allowed I'm not sure... The most
success comes from having a single activity and having each tab be a
different View...

 Contacts is implemented like this.  At least it was a while ago, I don't
know if that is still the case.

Still, yes,  embedded activities it pretty cruddy.  One of the goals of
Fragment is to provide a better solution to replace it.

(For some perspective on where embedded activities came from -- early UI
designs for Android were very tab-oriented, and we were looking at tabs as
one of the extension points for applications, allowing the tabs to host
activities from other applications.  Ultimately though the UI moved away
from that, and we thus never implemented the (complicated) support for
cross-process embedded activities and probably never will.  So embedded
activities uses the heavy-weight activity abstraction on the theory that the
activities you host could be in separate processes, when they actually
can't.  Fragments provide a better API because they drop the pretense of
these things being so separate.)

 Hi Edwin,

  Try to change:

   voice = new TextToSpeech(*this*, this);

  to: 

   voice = new TextToSpeech(*this.getParent()*, this);

  Hope this helps.

1. DatePicker : size, font, etc...

Hi there !
Is there any way to change a datePicker size (I mean scaling it), or
at least just the font's size ? The fact is that the datePicker frame
displayed in the UI designer in Eclipse, is not the same than the one
showing in the emulator : button parts are same but fields are bigger,
wich is very annoying to setup proper fitting user interface in tight
layouts. I didn't manage to apply a custom style either....

thanks a lot ! :)

2. Can't use ServerSocket

I'm trying to listen on a port using ServerSocket on an Android
device. I want to be able to connect to this port over WiFi using a
computer on the same network.

I get no exception when binding it to a port, however when I check
netstat it says:

Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address
State
tcp        0      0 (null):4040             (null):*
LISTEN

I've tried countless ways of binding it to localhost, 0.0.0.0, the
WiFi LAN IP address of the device with SocketInetAddress and
InetAddress.getByName. Nothing seems to work.

When I try to connect to the port from a computer in the same WiFi
(I've tried both netcat and Java's Socket.connect()), all I can see in
Wireshark is an ARP request:

Who has [phone's LAN address]? Tell [computer LAN address].

This request repeat itself until timed out.

I've tried the reverse way, by setting the ServerSocket on the
computer and connecting to that port from the phone, that works very
well.

My testing phone is an Samsung Spica i5700 with a custom ROM.

Any ideas?
