Earlier someone asked about a TabHost example. I know it's deprecated, but someone mentioned online that it might be making a comeback in the next API version.

In either case, I brute forced my way through getting a TabHost working. Here's a quick example with screenshots: ... d-tabhost/

Record call detail, store in MySQL(lite)

Postby evets » Wed Mar 05, 2008 2:52 pm

Specifically, this application would create a row in a table containing the following:

-Phone number(either dialed, or incoming if available)
-Date/Time call initiated/received
-Date/Time call ended
-GPS coordinates when call initiated/received
-Flag Incoming/Outgoing

I didn't want to complicate things too much, however a method for transferring the DB to a web server would be necessary for this to be of any real value...

I was thinking of changing the loading up screen from that red ball moving back and forth to something more graphical like something that takes up the whole screen.

Has anyone know how to find the java source of PDF/openxml document reader in android ?

Hi Authors,

I am looking to see some tutorial about : How to dynamically load and use a View in my application.

Usage scenarios: An application download from web the Views written by other developer (the views may implement a wellknown interface), and it needs to dynamically load this View into app and render it with full behaviour. Of course no info is available at compile time, not able to make declaration in main xml,...

Much appeciate if you could kindly please make one tutorial or direct me to an existing one doing this task.

Many Thanks in advance,
