I haven’t posted anything in a month of Sundays. I never understood why people use dumb phrases like “a month of Sundays”. If there were only Sunday “days” in the month then it would be kind of short because you only get four of them… and that doesn’t seem like it makes much sense. I say that because people use that phrase to indicate long elapsed periods of time and a month of Sundays is only four days. People should just get over themselves and say I haven’t seen you in four days without all of the, “I need you to do the Maths and figure out what I’m talking about”. People are dumb. I digress.
I was beginning to tell you about this thing I’m doing with web views. I did it because I’ve been asked how to do it like two times. I got tired of pretending to know what I’m talking about so I prototyped it and I’m going to post my stuff here and just point to this page from now on. Plus, like I said earlier it’s been a month of Sundays (or four days if you don’t like Maths). So here goes. For those three of you who visit regularly I’m sorta back but not quite. Testing the waters a bit.
Let’s start with main layout saved in a file call main.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <FrameLayout android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> <LinearLayout android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent"> <WebView android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="250dp" android:id="@+id/myWebView" android:layout_gravity="center"/> <WebView android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="250dp" android:id="@+id/secondWebView"/> </LinearLayout> </FrameLayout>
We have a linear layout set to vertical orientation. There are two nested WebViews defined, “myWebView” and “secondWebView”. Each will appear one above the other. Next we define a main activity.
Let’s see our first HTML file, view1.html:
I used to be so much better at gluing code to blog posts but these days I don’t even remember how to log in to my site as the administrator. With any luck, the code will be found as an attachment or maybe something with a little paper clip icon hanging on the side bar. I’m not really sure but I’ll figure that out now. There! I just remembered the Box widget on the right hand side. You can find my Jvascriptbridge.zip project there. Until next time… which might not take an entire month of Sundays if I get my act together…
Getting one’s act together is another one of those things people say. I’ve never acted nor do I belong to a drama club, so I would have a hard time getting my act together. For example, if I had an “act” how did it become disassembled in the first place? I would imagine various pieces of what would have been “my act” scattered randomly on the floor. I would probably hire somebody to piece it back together because I suck at act assembly. That would take a while because last time I looked in the Yellow Pages there was no section for “Act Assemblers”. I could find “Plumber”, and “Doctor” just fine. “Mechanic” was there, as well as “Actor” but not “Assembler”. It’s late, and I probably should go now. If you’re into programming stuff, check back. I promise I won’t ramble senselessly on my next post… unless you like my rambling. And if you do like it maybe I’ll put up one of those PayPal links so people can pay me for rambling. Yes it’s late. I should do other stuff like sleep. Thanks for reading! 🙂
