intent.action_send and intent chooser

 When creating an intent with action send to send some data, is there a
way to filter the results that are included in the activity chooser
that is created using Intent.createChooser? I have not seen a way to
do this other than setting the mime type, but it is not flexible

For example, there is a situation when I want e-mail apps to be the
only results in the activity chooser dialog. Setting the type to "text/
html" successfully filters this down to email apps, except when
bluetooth is enabled. Bluetooth appears in the list as well, but this
is not desirable. Surely there is a way to have a little more control
over the results?

What are "e-mail apps"?

Only on your test environment(s). Anyone can create an application
that supports ACTION_SEND of text/html -- this it not something
exclusive to "e-mail apps". I would not be the least bit surprised if
there are others on certain devices or out on the Market.

Write your own chooser dialog, using PackageManager.

 With e-mail apps, I just meant I was looking to filter the results to
e-mail clients, not necessarily anything that can handle "text/html",
which I realized wouldn't work when bluetooth popped up.

Thank you for the tip on creating my own dialog using PackageManager,
I will look into that.

Hi group
I am trying to get a RandomAccessFile from either
Resources.openRawResource() or getAsset(). I cannot find a direct way
to get one. Does anybody know that?



2. Asynctask threads never end!


Today, while debugging and app that uses AsyncTask to record audio and
update UI I noticed that everytime that an AsyncTask object ends
running (finishes doInBackground() and onPostExecute() or
onCancelled()) its thread stays alive (running status).
At least for me that should not be the behavior of the class since the
doInBackground task may not stay running forever (as an example the
android manual says that a status bar should be updated by an
asynctask, and it wont last for the whole app running time).

Is there anything Im missing, as a method to destroy it, or should I
just ignore and keep creating threads as I need and the VM will handle
them as it needs resources?

Thank you,
Gabriel Simes
