IDK about "best", but discussed here has been the idea of a flag you pass
down the stack in onActivityResult() that tells each parent Activity in the
chain that it should commit suicide and pass the message along.

 make a parent Activity class to derive all your app classes from, and have a 
static Activity head, and a private Activity linkField. Then a static void 
closeListOfActivity() method

This also allows next activity in class jump functionality. Well it would if 
the instance would stay unkilled.

Have the master activity store its bundle in a static, and implement some 
sub bundle tree. I think .class means when the last instance is killed, the 
class has to be removed otherwise static class variables would hold 
references to possibly killed objects. Maybe ??

A static and helper threads checking for keep alive?

Is there a short definitive solution to the arrayofActivity? or a definitive 
answer on static class variable references to Activity instances?

Cheers Jacko

2. Wired crash with ActivityUnitTestCase and dimens.xml

Hi @all,

I wrote a test case with ActivityUnitTestCase which was working fine.

Now I added a dimensions file (dimens.xml) and using the values with a

Here some parts from the dimens.xml:

  <dimen name="my_height">15dp</dimen>

Here the attrs.xml:
  <declare-styleable name="Theme">
    <attr name="theHeight" format="dimension" />

And here the style.xml:
  <style name="myStyle">
    <item name="android:layout_height">@dimen/my_height</item>
    <item name="android:paddingLeft">?theHeight</item>

The style.xml is in the android manifest.

On the G1 and the emulator the code works fine. In the test case I'm
getting a crash.

05-10 15:03:48.658: INFO/TestRunner(748):
java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Can't convert to dimension:

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


Any idea?
