res wrote:If you try and access the Address straight away it will be null since the emulator hasn't had time to get the information to populate it yet. If you view the emulator logs after you make a query you will see something like
D/LocalGeoCoder( 769): Got Address ( AND THEN ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ADDRESS)
other replies are
D/LocalGeoCoder( 769): Got locatin query ( AND THEN ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE LOCATION)
D/LocalGeoCoder( 769): Got business query ( AND THEN ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE BUSINESS)
I presume you will need to catch this via your intent reciever so you know when its ok to try and read information from the Address. Haven't got this far yet, need to find more spare time.
