Using Droid-fu

 Hello everyone,
                       I'm trying to use the droid-fu libraries in my
project but I guess I have no idea what I am doing. I plan on using
BetterAsyncTask to send a couple of images to a server and then have
the program return a response. The problem I am having is after I add
the droid-fu .jar file into my build path. I then try to extend my
main activity as follows

import com.github.droidfu.activities.BetterDefaultActivity;

        public class MainActivity extends BetterDefaultActivity {
        /** Called when the activity is first created. */
        protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


Before I even add any code to my project the program crashes if I try
to run it. I get the following exception:

03-02 20:43:47.784: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(3238):
java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to start activity

Any help would really be appreciated! I am about ready to give up on
the droid-fu libraries and just use the regular AsyncTask . Do I need
to add anything to my manifest file??

Does this library not have a dedicated site / forum? That would be a more
appropriate place for such a question.

Always include the names of Services, Activities, Application, etc, sub

Your error, in particular, indicates a problem with the app's Application

2. More than one EditText - not getting focus, no soft keyboard?

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to Android development, enjoying it a lot so far, but
I've hit my first stumbling block for which I couldn't find an answer
in the documentation or online.

The home screen of my application has three EditText views, meant to
be used as three different search functions, each with a "Search"

The app works perfectly on the device (G1) when using the trackball:
I can move between the EditTexts with the trackball, all the events
fire as expected, I can enter text using the physical keyboard in the
selected EditText, Enter correctly submits the proper search, etc.

However, I can't switch between the EditText views using touches -
only by using the trackball.  Touches seem to be completely ignored by
the EditText.  Touches do fire for the buttons, but very hard - takes
a lot of tries to make a touch register.

In the simulator, clicking on any EditText does nothing - the first
one always remains selected, and I never get a soft keyboard.

This is all inside a TabHost - I've read there are some problems with
that configuration, but it sounds like a slightly different issue (the
EditText doesn't seem to lose focus - everything works perfectly with
the trackball).

Any suggestions for what I can check?
