Edit Label of a GPS-Point

Postby bavarol » Tue Jan 29, 2008 1:42 pm

How can I edit the Label of a point?
I.e. In FriendFinder the Label calls "Me" and it's defined in a XML, how can I edit/change this value dinamicly?

Thx

Hello bavarol,

search for the line in FriendFinderMap.java, where map_overlay_own_name is used and replace it with any 'dynamic function' you want to.

Thx PlusMinus for all

What do you suggest, if you want to change/edit this value, a flotant Dialog(Dialog with Map on background) or a new Screen(View)(->No Map until we click a button)?

What would it be such code?

Thx

Hello bavarol,

Just to change the name, I wold prefer a Dialog-box, what is principally a Activity with half-transparent background done like this:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using java Syntax Highlighting
  1. // Called in the OnCreate() of the Sub-Activity
  2. this.setTheme(android.R.style.Theme_Dialog);
Parsed in 0.031 seconds, using GeSHi 1.0.8.4


Would finally look similar to this:

For passing/receiving data to SubActivities have a look at this tutorial: :src: viewtopic.php?t=305
