We’ve had a very challenging week with a lot of backend work for some enterprise customers so we didn’t get as
much done as we do most weeks. I can say that I’ve seen some of the apps in the pipeline and I’m very excited
about the things to come…
Todays update includes many bug fixes on Android, UWP but not much in terms of new features.
On stack overflow things were pretty standard:
CodenameOne set indexing of fields for virtual keyboard
The order of the fields is determined by the focus and that can be manipulated using
Login form is shown for a couple of second in iOS
The iOS section in the developer guide explains the iOS splash screen system in-depth
How to show side menu icon in particular forms only
Just don’t add commands into that form that go into the side menu. That’s pretty easy to do with the
Codenameone Detect keyboard showing
Detecting a keyboard isn’t good practice since the behavior differs a lot between iOS/Android etc.
Hiding element while preserving its space in page layout
setVisible hides elements like the title mentioned but in his case he was asking about
Codename One class file for PrintWriter not found
The webservice wizard is a bit confusing, it’s important to generate the server code to a server project
Is it possible to arrange commands properly on a GUI Element in iOS?
If you aren’t using
Toolbar yet we recommend switching to it for better control
theme.res not found on Codenameone IntellijIDEA IDE
This was caused because he picked the Android SDK instead of the JDK when creating the project
Codenameone Plugin not Loaded in Android Studio
We don’t support Android Studio, Google broke a lot of things in IntelliJ to make it work for Android
Auto start, cross platform, background mobile web service with codename one or cordova
There are limitations of mobile native OS’s at play and you hit them sooner than you hit the limitations of Codename One
How to avoid that swiping a SwipeableContainer also creates an event in the top container?
This includes some “black magic” to get this working…
Can I use an SVG image as an button icon?
We don’t really support SVG, ideally we’ll improve that but native platforms don’t support it either…
Recommended way to change the size of the Toolbar in Codename One
We rely heavily on the fact that
Container is transparent and has 0 padding/margin
Change CodenameOne InfiniteContainer PullToRefresh Behaviour
You can override the refresh method in that class
Date Time Picker on double tap display typing Feature
We recommend using separate date picker & time picker. You should avoid the Date & Time picker as that is a
feature that is iOS specific.
GUI builder does not show up
Eclipse has slightly slower update cycles than NetBeans/IntelliJ at this time. Normally that isn’t a problem but
with a fast evolving tool like the GUI builder it might be a bit of a hindrance.
Apps Error no virtual method
This was a result of using a pre-release version of the API as we made minor adjustments to the method signatures
You can enable tickering for any component that derives label which includes buttons etc.
Size of URLImage as a Label icon
URLImage resizes and caches the data based on placeholder size and settings
connection and Toastbar not displaying issue
ToastBar is bound to a form so if you are on a different form this might be a problem
downloadUrlToStorageInBackground in ImageList model for imageViewer downloads & overrides the image every time
The download method always downloads and doesn’t check if the file is already there…
Trouble changing background color of TextField in Codename One
The requirement to define the border as empty breeds a lot of confusion
Managing Demo / Full version of my app in Codename One
This is a common case that I was pretty sure we had documented somewhere, it should probably be in the developer
UWP SQLite CodenameOne with native interface
This was actually a pretty interesting question as it made me think on the potential approaches for a relatively complex
