Hello Jesmiatka,

Jesmiatka wrote:I see you implemented your own keyboards in your application. Can I ask why? Do you think touchscreen phones (w/o keyboard) don't get the ability to type text in Android with a standard integrated keyboard or something?


Yes I know, but:
a.) Up to now there is no such functionality (sw-keyboard) within Android :(
b.) I though that some phones could have relatively small hw-keys and when you have docked your device to you car front window hw-keys are probably harder to press than using the touch-screen.
c.) The Screens looked so damn empty without :lol:

Thx for the feedback :)

I'll add some "POI"-Search(Points of Interest) soon.

Unfortunately the new SDK is making a few problems with Bundles :(

Is that human image (yellow body, white head) the same one as used on google maps? How did you find the image, I have no idea what to look for when trying to locate it.

Hi plusminus,

Can you tell me how you done the two zoom buttons. Is it an overlay ? Is it clickable ? I'm very interessed to know how you made this !!!

thanks,

Hello agent00,

that are two ImageViews (clickable, just standard setOnClickListener-procedure) over the MapView.
The over is accomplished using a RelativeLayout:

XML-Code is ~:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using xml Syntax Highlighting
  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  2. <RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  3.         android:layout_width="fill_parent"
  4.         android:layout_height="fill_parent">
  5.         <view class="com.google.android.maps.MapView"
  6.                 android:id="@+id/map_map"
  7.                 android:layout_width="fill_parent"
  8.                 android:layout_height="fill_parent"/>
  9.         <ImageView
  10.                 android:id="@+id/iv_map_zoomin"
  11.                 android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
  12.                 android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
  13.                 android:layout_width="wrap_content"
  14.                 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
  15.                 android:src="@drawable/plus_32"/>
  16.         <ImageView
  17.                 android:id="@+id/iv_map_zoomout"
  18.                 android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
  19.                 android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
  20.                 android:layout_width="wrap_content"
  21.                 android:layout_height="wrap_content"
  22.                 android:src="@drawable/minus_32"/>
  23. </RelativeLayout>

May I know what kind of Application you are doing :?:

Nothing stopping you but I'd be wary of people possibly copying your idea. Instead of posting it all together maybe break it down into tiny tut's?

Looks good, although when the user goes off track and a new route is re-calculated it kept suggesting a similar route many times in a row which looked awkward, it was towards the end of the demo. Maybe if the same route is suggested to pop-up a message informing them to turn-around?

Any future ideas for the project?

Thanks for the response :) ,

the time until the route gets re-calculated is variable. So I can make it long enough to make a Text2Speech API say "Turn around if possible".
Also the the screencast runs 'fast-forwarded', at ~ 100-300 meters per second (just that it gets not boring), what is the speed of a jet ;)

So its hard to say how it will feel in a real world test.

(Basically I do not like "please turn around"-messages, because when you miss a turn, there is probably not even a chance to turn around...)
