Postby imray » Tue Oct 02, 2012 4:47 pm

i set OnLongClickListner, but it doesn't fire. Can anybody help me?
i just follow, and change some, as it is posted in 2010.

Some part of code:
Code: Select all
//declare under class
private AppWidgetHostView widgets[] = new AppWidgetHostView[16];

widgets[widgCount] = attachWidget(mAppWidgetHost.createView(this, appWidgetId, appWidgetInfo), width, height);
       widgets[widgCount].setOnLongClickListener(new OnLongClickListener() {
           public boolean onLongClick(View v) {
              Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "hello hello ", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
               return true;

My code:
Code: Select all

     //when the user completes the pick process, both these cases come back, according to log.

   next we need to make a record of where we are adding this widget
   what the launcher is doing is spawning a helper object where it saves details about the widget
   it saves the number of cells wide and tall the widget is
   it adds the spawned object to the array list for widgetinfos
   the array list is a member of LauncherInfo helper object
   the model seems to retain the references to everything that's been placed on the Launcher
       //we can get a reference to our main view here, and then add a relative layout to it.
       //I can probably directly reference the relative layout I want and then add widgets filling in from the top

       //to decide whether to place it on right of last widget or on the bottom
