 Hi


I saw a post saying key capturing in the background is not possible ..
is this still the case? or was thre any recent changes to make this
happen ? I wonder why this capability is closed when there are lot of
genuine use cases. Is it possibel to do the same with some special
rights?.

Yes.


No.


You are welcome to write your own mobile operating system that enables
spyware to monitor key presses from other applications.

1. Handling long process after clicking menu item from the menu

Hi all,
  Upon the selection of a menu item from the menu, I wrote some code
to open a dialog using onCreateDialog of the activity. Each time a
dialog is opened, new data downloaded has to be shown on dialog, which
is pausing the application for 2 to 3 seconds. And the menu item
becomes unresponsive.

I tried using AsyncTask, but because of the following code, in
onCreateDialog,

protected Dialog onCreateDialog(int id) {

                Dialog dialog = null;

                switch (id) {

                    case DIALOG_WITH_DOWNLOADED_DATA:

                         DataDialog dataDialog = new DataDialog(this);
                         dialog = dataDialog.getDialog();

                          break;
               }
}


Even though, I extend AsyncTask to DataDialog class, I am not able to
return data because, onPostExecute() method returns void.

Please help.
