Can this be done??

Postby matfawcett » Tue Jun 01, 2010 9:52 am

I have a gentleman looking at developing an app for me, I need some options added in to default android menu's and the calendar and i'm being told it can't be done. Can anyone shed some light if this is possible, basically want to add a button on the New event screen of the calendar and a couple of other similar things.

The advice he is giving me is to make a whole new app to do what I want to do, but I want to integrate the things I want into the existing features

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You can't alter the default menu without altering the Android source code. You can do this, but nobody is going to/will be able to use the app.

You can access the calendar, but it is not recommended as it is not listed API and may change from build to build, so your app won't work in future versions of Android.

See elsewhere in these forums for how to do this.
