 Hi, I need to embed a google doc form in my android application. The
client doesn't want the user has to download the google docs
application to open it, nor any third party application. I'll
appreciate if you guys could help me.

Thanks in advance

Google Docs exists on the internets, which you can access with a Browser or
WebView ...

 I'm not sure if the pretty please is going to do it... maybe with a cherry 
on top though...

 Yes, a WebView works fine.

But maybe are there more options?, maybe an API of google, to get
question by question of the form? In this way I could make an
application showing one by one depending on the type of the question.
I've been reading the Google Document List API but I haven't found
anything yet.
I presented the browser option, but they didn't like it because it
shows the whole form like in a regular browser, with blank spaces in
both sides, also they don't want the user has to manage the zoom.

If you have more ideas would be great!!

Thank you for your reply

Google Docs Forms are backed by a Google Docs Spreadsheet, which offers
several APIs for accessing (and even adding to) the data in the spreadsheet.

 Sorry about the other posts in the other blogs.

I've been looking the spreadsheet that the google form creates, but I
don't see where the question structure is.

I mean, for example for a checkbox question, in the spreadsheet only
appear the title of the question, and the answers, but no the whole
options and the type of the question.

I this information hidden inside the spreadsheet?? or where can I get
this information, if I get the spreadsheet with the API.

Thanks

Questions regarding Google Docs belong on a list or forum pertaining
to Google Docs. This is not that list.

1. RPC Best Practices

Hey guys,

I'm starting my first Android Application and I'm trying to figure out
the best way to implement an RPC layer to communicate with my Tomcat
server. Basically, I've got POJOs on the Android Client and on the
Server. I simply would like to serialize the POJOs on Android, send up
an HTTP Post, deserialize on the server, do some work, then serialize
a POJO response back down to the client.

I've seen a number of posts referencing JSON and XML but nothing
really definitive. Further clouding the matter is the different
Android SDKs out there that seem to have different levels of support
for each. Obviously, if Android has a native library that works well,
I'd like to use that. Additionally, I'd like something that could work
with my existing POJOs without a great deal of trouble.

What are the best practices for this sort of thing? Can anyone send me
to any tutorials that have some solid examples on how to get this
implemented and going?

Thanks!

Evan

2. Trying to create a Android Client that can call a .NET Web Service

Hi Everyone,

I've read some of the earlier posts on this subject, but I've found
them confusing.  I'm trying to create a Client Application using
Android 1.5 that can call a .NET Web Service using SOAP.  I understand
that the kSOAP2 library can help  here and I've imported that into my
Project.

I need assistance in correctly using the kSOAP2 library to develop the
application.

Thanks in advance!
