Will this work in python 3 yet?

based on some quick testing... not quite there yet. However, i did keep
Python 3 support in mind while writing this & so it already uses new style
classes, iter access to dicts instead of lists etc... so hopefully can iron
out the compatibility issues & release a py3 supporting version shortly.

Update: a
[http://python-for-android.googlecode.com/hg/sl4atools/fullscreenwrapper2/py3/fullscreenwrapper2_py3.py
working Python3 compatible version] of FullScreenWrapper2 is now available.
The Python3 compatible module name is *fullscreenwrapper2_py3*

I have tested the example scripts fullscreenwrapper2demo.py &
gyro_sl4a_test.py with this version on Python 3 for R6 and found them
working properly. The port could do with more testing however - pls do test
& share feedback/issues if any.

I've been waiting for something like this for a long, long time. Noticed
that the sample apps don't use native GUI elements, though, like buttons.
Will this change in the future?

Comment by srinathd...@gmail.com:

Thanks! BTW, the apps DO use native android elements exclusively (Button,
TextView, ListView etc.)... that's the purpose of FullScreenUI functions in
SL4A and you can find these in the XML layout strings (you should be able
to take layouts from Android java apps use them with minimal modification -
eg. hard coding strings)

It's just that given SL4A's architecture based on socket communication, you
cannot really have the *same* programmatic/object access. What
FullScreenWrapper2 tries to do is to give you an emulated intuitive
programmatic/object-like access to your Views and event handling to
simplify programming so you don't need to directly deal with SL4A event and
full screen functions. The limitation of SL4A's FullScreenUI architecture
is that you can create your views only through loading XML layouts and not
programmatically at any time.

would be very nice to have :-)
my personal skills in perl are zero however... I'm more than willing to
actively help etc if someone's interested & willing to port this to perl.
The framework is not very complicated.

See here:
http://code.google.com/p/android-scripting/wiki/FullScreenUI#Images

You need to use a fully qualified file url, ie:
droid.fullSetProperty("imageView1","src","file:///sdcard/download/panda72.png")

I am fairly new to programming anything for Android so I am not 100% sure if I'm doing this correctly or just simply missing something.
What I am trying to do is add a .png to a button as a background, I assumed I could put the .png in the same folder as the main python file and change:

android:background="#ff66a3d2"  to  android:background="@<image>.png"

To my dismay it seems my logic is missing something crucial with this, and due to my lack of experience with attempting an interface using xml, and especially xml on Android through sl4a/Python for Android.

Wonderful!, I'm using it on my last project and it is very simple, it is
possible to assemble a view without xml and adding controls
programmatically, only with code?. Thanks for share this great project!

Sorry to bother, but I am a beginner programmer (freshman in college with
intermediate experience in python and xml) and I am not entirely sure how
to create multiple layouts. I have my main screen, but when I hit a button
on this screen, I wish to load a new layout screen (with a return button to
the original screen). Would you be able to advise me on how this is done.

Using fullscreen, just load up a different xml layout.
Is the question about how to load up a different xml, or how to react to the button ?

Hi,

As an example take a look @ the code here... http://code.google.com/p/python-for-android/source/browse/sl4atools/fullscreenwrapper2/examples/calcount2_example.zip

It loads a new layout for taking user input on clicking a button in the main screen and then goes back once input is complete.

Best regards
Srinath

I've got really confused about the events. What I want to do is fire an
event every time the value in an EditText changes, so I can change the
values in a list (it's a sort of self-refining search).
How do I add an event to do that?

Comment by said.ran...@gmail.com:

I've a problem... I would like to use a EditText with Action Done and i
wrote in my xml:
<EditText
android:id="@+id/widget35"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:hint="EditText"
android:textSize="18sp"
android:singleLine="true"
android:imeOptions="actionDone" />
I would like to get text when on the keyboard is pressed "Done" button.
I tried with add_event_handler(full_screen_ui_wrapper.EVENT_SNIFFER,
self.GetText)
but does not work!!!
can someone help me?

Hmmm I don't know if actiondone event is captured in sl4a code currently... so you may not see it.

In this case you could simply add a separate click handler to your done button.

Srinath

Thanks for a cool project. I have had much success using this for a few
simple projects. I am currently trying to implement a simple 'Seekbar'. Is
this possible with fullscreenwrapper2? I have sample code but I cannot seem
to make it work. Does this makes sense when I am adding the event?

<SeekBar
android:id="@+id/sbar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:max="510"
android:progress="256"
android:padding="30dip"
/>

self.views.sbar.add_event(itemclick_EventHandler(self.views.sbar,
handler_function=self.onBar))

Any feedback would be much appreciated. My app runs, but the function onBar
is never called.

Ok, I know that last post didn't make much sense. So I deleted it. All I
want is to use a 'seekbar' with fullscreenwrapper2. Here is the code that I
am working on. It runs and everything works except the seekbar. The bar
shows up, it even slides back and forth, but the handler function 'on_bar'
never executes. Does anyone see any obvious reason for this?

I have had much success with this project, but I have run into a problem. I
would like to use a 'seekbar' with fullscreenwrapper2. I have stripped my
code down to a very simple example so i could post it here (I tried
using 'wiki syntax' code block....).

Basically the seekbar shows up in the app and it moves when you slide it.
However the Handler function never executes. Does anyone see an obvious
error in my code?

import sys, time, android
from fullscreenwrapper2 import *

xmldata = """<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

android:layout_height="0px"
android:background="#ff000000"
android:id="@+id/titlebox"
android:text="Seek Bar Test!"
android:textSize="20dp"
android:layout_weight="10"

<SeekBar

android:layout_width="match_parent"

android:progress="256"/>
<Button
android:id="@+id/but_quit"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="Quit"/>

class SeekBarLayout(Layout):
def __init__(self):
super(SeekBarLayout, self).__init__(xmldata, "Seek Bar Test")

def on_show(self):

self.add_event(key_EventHandler(handler_function=self.close_app))
self.views.sbar.add_event(itemclick_EventHandler(self.views.sbar,
handler_function=self.on_bar))

self.views.but_quit.add_event(click_EventHandler(self.views.but_quit,
self.close_app))

def on_bar(self, view, event):
print 'on_bar test'

def close_app(self,view,event):
FullScreenWrapper2App.exit_FullScreenWrapper2App()

def on_close(self):
pass

if __name__ == '__main__':
droid = android.Android()

FullScreenWrapper2App.initialize(droid)
FullScreenWrapper2App.show_layout(SeekBarLayout())
FullScreenWrapper2App.eventloop()

I know thats hard to read sorry. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I suppose SL4A is not listen the Seekbar event.
You can add event listener and re-compile/install the customized SL4A.
Customized SL4A will make your code to work.

I have patch code for SL4A but I forget details... (I made it three years
ago...)
