Problem with activity group

I am using ActivityGroup class for one of my tab in my application.

1) There is a tab activity class calling the activitygroup class.

2) In activity group class i am calling one activity say Activity A which is
a list view.

3) On Activity A item click, I am calling another activity say Activity B.

I need to override the back button functionality in Activity A and Activity

The problem which I am facing is on Activity A it is successfuly calling the
overriden onBackButton method but on Activity B instead of overriding the
back button method, it is calling the Tab Activity's back button method.  I
am not sure why?
I even debugged the code and it never goes into the onbackbutton method of
Activity B.

To resolve this I even tried calling Activity A on back button press of tab
activity which is required.  But the flow come as it goes into activity A
and then from there it goes directly to the First Activity.

I am also using Alert Dialog Box in both of the activity and passing
getParent() as context in the Alert Builder Dialog Box.

Any help in this regard will be great.

Thanks & Regards,
Laxmi Verma

That's a problem in and of itself. From what I've read around here,
ActivityGroup is pretty much a hack. Use Views in your Tabs or try the new
fragment stuff.

Can you please detail out about your reply.  I am unable to understand it.
Is there any other option available instead of ActivityGroup to change the
views in the tab.
If yes, then please provide some link or some code example on it.

Yes, use Views or Fragments, as I said.

Look through the documentation for TabView or Fragment. You should find
plenty of info.

1. Shake Detector

Has anyone implemented an Android Shake Detector that works well on most 

I thought it would be fairly simple to implement but I keep getting false results. Basically, what I'm doing is setting up a sensor Listener, checking to make sure it is a SensorManager.SENSOR_ACCELEROMETER event, then only checking the event if the last event I received was more than 50 milliseconds ago (to try to reduce the amount of checking I do)... Then I look for 3 "Shakes" within 4 seconds... A "Shake" to me being a speed reading of over 1000 followed by a speed reading of less than 400 within 1 second. If I don't get three "Shakes" within 4 seconds then the counter is reset to zero. At times it seems to work well... but I continue to have instances where I just pick up the phone, and it triggers all three shakes, which makes very little sense to me.. because at other times, I can physically shake the phone quite hard, and not trigger all three shakes... As I said.. it works about 90% of the time correctly, but a 10% error rate is making the feature I want to implement useless. Anyone have a better formula or some links?
