 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. without Absolutelayout, how to put widget on arbitary coordinate

The AbsoluteLayout is deprecated exactly because you should NOT put a
widget on arbitrary X, Y.

Either you don't put it there, but use another Layout, or you use
Absolute and agree your application will not work well on different
screen resolutions.

2. how to open another application with Intent

I am wondering if there is a way to open another Application (not
Activity) with intents.  I want users to be able to look at the
pictures on their device, so when they push a button, it will open the
GalleryPicker that comes on Android devices.

I've debugged my Droid when I am on the Home screen and I open the
GalleryPicker.  Here's the debugs:

INFO/ActivityManager(1015): Starting activity: Intent
{ act=android.intent.action.MAIN cat=
[android.intent.category.LAUNCHER] flg=0x10200000
cmp=com.android.camera/.GalleryPicker }


I am trying to use this code:

Intent i = new Intent();
i.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_LAUNCHER);
i.setAction(Intent.ACTION_MAIN);
i.setComponent(new ComponentName("com.android.camera",
".GalleryPicker"));
i.setFlags(0x10200000);

startActivity(i);


When I hit the button, here is what I get in the debugs:


INFO/ActivityManager(1015): Starting activity: Intent
{ act=android.intent.action.MAIN cat=
[android.intent.category.LAUNCHER] flg=0x10200000
pkg=com.android.camera cmp=com.android.camera/.GalleryPicker }

ERROR/AndroidRuntime(31059):
android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: Unable to find explicit
activity class {com.android.camera/.GalleryPicker}; have you declared
this activity in your AndroidManifest.xml?



Any ideas, or is this futile?


Thanks
