Great Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart (Steve Pomeroy – Google+)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/16

Thanks a lot Steve Pomeroy! And shame on me for finding out (through Michael Panzer, thanks for your notification) this chart only today (he published this chart on 2013-08-20).

Steve’s quote on it:

After struggling with trying to figure out how various pieces fit together, I’ve done some research and put together the complete Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart. This has two parallel lifecycles (activities and fragments) which are organized vertically by time. Lifecycle stages will occur in the vertical order in which they’re displayed, across activities and fragments. In this way, you can see how your fragments interact with your activities.

In addition to the attached image, I’ve also got an SVG: http://staticfree.info/~steve/complete_android_fragment_lifecycle.svg which is suitable for printing.

If this is missing lifecycle steps or is inaccurate in any way, let me know so I can update it!

Note: there is also a large bitmap of the chart.

Android: “R cannot be resolved to a variable” What is R? Why is it so Cryptic? (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/03

If I ever get “R cannot be resolved to a variable” in an Android project again, then I should read these posts:

One of the quotes was the culprit:

*Note: Eclipse sometimes likes to add an “import android.R” statement at the top of your files that use resources, especially when you ask Eclipse to sort or otherwise manage imports. This will cause your make to break. Look out for these erroneous import statements and delete them.*

At #SXSW 2014 this week, Embarcadero Launches Appmethod, A New Multi-Device Development Platform For Native Apps (via: @TechCrunch)

The @appmethod secret.

The @appmethod secret.

Wow. Out of the blue, I just read Embarcadero Launches AppMethod, A New Multi-Device Development Platform For Native Apps | TechCrunch. And I’m impressed.

In short:

At SXSW 2014 (which is running now, its agenda has a schedule from March 7th till March 16th), Embarcadero announces appmethod, to be released in beta on March 18th, 2014 for building native cross platform applications. Many have found out you can apply for the beta at www.appmethod.com.

More and more people are bumping into the appmethod link, for instance on FaceBook, on Google Plus, at Delphi Bistro and #Appmethod starting with the @appmethod secret by Joy Ruff.

Below are a few my observations from following all of the above links. Read them, especially the TechCrunch. I expect interesting posts from others to follow really soon now (:.

I’m only a few hours ahead of you readers, but I’m having a positive vibe just for these reasons: Read the rest of this entry »
