I like the idea of a browser for the front end, only because browsers are omnipresent and does not require installing potentially harmful code. However, apps are completely different, if only in that the code would require downloading, regardless.
I hate Java, i hate Android development, but i repeat myself. And that's exactly what i hate about them.
In Android, objects have their own namespaces, under R. There's R.class, R.mipmap, R.layout, R.color, R.integer, and many more. So, the namespace of the layout (where you usually add objects) is under R.layout, the image on a button can be under R.mipmap. Nice.
OIC. Nah, java is just a redundant language which promotes this form of idiocy.
Anyway, in this case, it's not the value of the checkbox. It's a method that accepts true or false as its argument. Hence, my argument.
The expression must evaluate to true or false, and those are both valid values for the checkbox's method, regardless of if there are also others.
If an If()'s true block set something to true, and it's false block set's it to false (or vice-versa) and nothing else, there's absolutely no reason to use an if().
Here's the latest example of something i have seen way too often:
if(getListView().getCount()==checkedItemCount) chk.setChecked(true); else chk.setChecked(false);
What's the point of obfuscating your code with an if()? This isn't conditional. You want to set it to the same boolean value as the evaluated expression. Obviously, the clearest way to write this (without changing names) is:
As mentioned in one of my last exciting posts, i purchased a Google Cardboard. I bought it and was wowed last night. It was easy to put together, easy to get running, and the forehead part had a piece of tape (ostensibly, to protect against sweat stains). The strap worked well, and the Nerf dart shaft made a comfortable nose piece.
I seem to be seeing more often a weird sentence formulation. A book talks of passing to a function a variable, an article mentions "signed into law a bill," and plenty lately of others. While normal to be found this formulation in other languages, it sounds in English rather awkward.
You can do a search to setup play. There's an article on XDA about it. I took the longer method, because i don't feel right getting rid of the ads. I saved $15 by "saying" i would view them.
I have not used it extensively. The OS is made to use and sell Amazon services, and has a somewhat different feel than regular Android.
Continuing from the last exciting edition of what is Chacham buying today, I decided to try out the Plantronics Explorer 50 for $23.19 on ebay. Weird that it's cheaper from the UK. Anyway, i was thinking of purchasing the 3 for the 10% discount, but that's too big a gamble for a product i have not tried. If i like it, i may buy another 1 or 2. Or, purchase 3 and see if i can sell one on Amaz
Yeah, but i was hoping anyway.
Thanx for the hint on the app. Not sure that will work when i get home, but that is useful.
Looking for an update to Galen's De Temperamentis in English, i emailed the lady at Cambridge Press again and received a prompt response:
The manuscript for Galen: Works on Human Nature has still not yet been submitted to the Press - the editors say that they are anticipating now to submit in June 2016.
I tried a few Bluetooth earpieces. Just a few. My brother gave me an old Motorola one (H something?) which i used until it broke, and when i finally accepted that it was actually broken to the point that it would not magically start working again, i searched Amazon and bought a Plantronics M50. (And after some time, i finally threw out the Motorola one.)
So, i've been looking for a good book on Android. It's hard as almost all are out of date shortly after publication, and most of them say "do this now do that" and expect you to learn from doing. Some explain, but the explanations are more of the approach and what will be done, rather than why each thing is being done and alternative approaches (for better or worse.)
