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.

1. OpenGL Material

Hello all,

I'm fairly new to OpenGL ES and am having a heck of a time trying to
get my material to show up.  Right now all I'm looking at is a shaded
gray rotating triangle.  At least it looks shaded (light and dark
parts), but now color other than gray.

I've posted my code here:

The triangle coordinates, normals, and material:

The renderer:

I'm using ambient, diffuse, and emission to create the material.  And
ambient and diffuse for the light.

I'm testing on a G1 running Android 1.6.

Any insight will be helpful.
