 Hi Guys,

 I am trying to get the last modified date of an internal file and it
always returns me 0 although I could read the file properly. Can you
please let me know if I am doing anything wrong...

Creating a file...

FileOutputStream Os = activity.openFileOutput("file1.jpg",
cachedImage.compress(CompressFormat.JPEG, 75, Os);

Reading the file...
long mod_time = 0;
File file = new File("file1".jpg");
mod_time = file.lastModified();
FileInputStream Is = activity.openFileInput("file1.jpg");
cachedImage = BitmapFactory.decodeStream(Is);

**mod_time is always zero!!!!**

That is because you are looking at the wrong file. Use new
File(getFilesDir(), "file1.jpg") to get at the same file that you use
with openFileInput()/openFileOutput().

2. EditText - how to respond to soft keyboard enter?

I have a very simple screen consisting of an EditText for entering a
number, a bunch of TextViews that display results based on the number,
and a RadioGroup to select a mode.

What I want is the screen to do is recompute the results when the user
finishes entering a new number either by pressing the enter key on a
real keyboard or the done key on the virtual keyboard.  I assume this
is pretty standard, but if this is not the best practice I would love
to know.  I have an onKeyListener set on the EditText to capture the
enter key.  It works fine with the real keyboard, but it never gets
called by the soft keyboard.

I also have a problem keeping the focus on the edittext after the
enter key is pressed.  It jumps to a radio button, which is not
desired.  I tried executing v.requestFocus() in the listener right
before the "return true", but it is ignored.

Thanks in advance for any help.
