Android make Image Sharper | Android image Blur Issue

Hello Droid Guys,
    Today , I am going to share a sample code which helps you in making image
more sharper and clear also helps you in fixing image Blur issue .This is based on
Convolution Matrix Theorem.

About Convolution Matrix : Check this link

 1. ImageHelper.java : This is our helper class which helps in processing image
     sharper/


package com.exampl.imagerun;

import android.graphics.Bitmap;
import android.graphics.Color;
 
public class ImageHelper
{
    public static final int SIZE = 3;
 
    public double[][] Matrix;
    public double Factor = 1;
    public double Offset = 1;
 
   //Constructor with argument of size
    public ImageHelper(int size) {
        Matrix = new double[size][size];
    }
 
    public void setAll(double value) {
        for (int x = 0; x < SIZE; ++x) {
            for (int y = 0; y < SIZE; ++y) {
                Matrix[x][y] = value;
            }
        }
    }
 
    public void applyConfig(double[][] config) {
        for(int x = 0; x < SIZE; ++x) {
            for(int y = 0; y < SIZE; ++y) {
                Matrix[x][y] = config[x][y];
            }
        }
    }
 
    public static Bitmap computeConvolution3x3(Bitmap src, ImageHelper matrix) {
        int width = src.getWidth();
        int height = src.getHeight();
        Bitmap result = Bitmap.createBitmap(width, height, src.getConfig());
 
        int A, R, G, B;
        int sumR, sumG, sumB;
        int[][] pixels = new int[SIZE][SIZE];
 
        for(int y = 0; y < height - 2; ++y) {
            for(int x = 0; x < width - 2; ++x) {
 
                // get pixel matrix
                for(int i = 0; i < SIZE; ++i) {
                    for(int j = 0; j < SIZE; ++j) {
                        pixels[i][j] = src.getPixel(x + i, y + j);
                    }
                }
 
                // get alpha of center pixel
                A = Color.alpha(pixels[1][1]);
 
                // init color sum
                sumR = sumG = sumB = 0;
 
                // get sum of RGB on matrix
                for(int i = 0; i < SIZE; ++i) {
                    for(int j = 0; j < SIZE; ++j) {
                        sumR += (Color.red(pixels[i][j]) * matrix.Matrix[i][j]);
                        sumG += (Color.green(pixels[i][j]) * matrix.Matrix[i][j]);
                        sumB += (Color.blue(pixels[i][j]) * matrix.Matrix[i][j]);
                    }
                }
 
                // get final Red
                R = (int)(sumR / matrix.Factor + matrix.Offset);
                if(R < 0) { R = 0; }
                else if(R > 255) { R = 255; }
 
                // get final Green
                G = (int)(sumG / matrix.Factor + matrix.Offset);
                if(G < 0) { G = 0; }
                else if(G > 255) { G = 255; }
 
                // get final Blue
                B = (int)(sumB / matrix.Factor + matrix.Offset);
                if(B < 0) { B = 0; }
                else if(B > 255) { B = 255; }
 
                // apply new pixel
                result.setPixel(x + 1, y + 1, Color.argb(A, R, G, B));
            }
        }
 
        // final image
        return result;
    }
}

 Now, In our Activity class we need to add following code:

ImageView imageView=(ImageView)findViewById(R.id.image);


Now set image on image view

image.setImageBitmap(sharpenImage(BitmapFactory.

decodeResource(getResources(),images[i]),12));

And, here we are using Convolution Matrix Theorem to make image sharper.

 public Bitmap sharpenImage(Bitmap src, double weight) {
    // set sharpness configuration
    double[][] SharpConfig = new double[][] { { 0, -2, 0 },
    { -2, weight, -2 }, { 0, -2, 0 } };
    // create convolution matrix instance
    ImageHelper convMatrix = new ImageHelper(3);
    // apply configuration
    convMatrix.applyConfig(SharpConfig);
    // set weight according to factor
    convMatrix.Factor = weight - 8;
    return ImageHelper.computeConvolution3x3(src, convMatrix);
 }


Hope this will help some one.
Enjoy Coding :)

Android Lazy Image loader Class Error | Image Loader not loading the image

Hello Friends,


One of my friend using Image Loader class to load an image from an url and displaying it
in a list view. She told me that the Image Loader is loading the image on an emulator, when
she run the app on a real device it's not loading any image.(Just showing the default image).

This problem occurs only when we didn't pass the permission in AndroidManifest.xml file.
When I saw her code I found following permission is missing..

 
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />


After adding this , the problem is resolved and the the app is working fine on
both emulator as well as on real device.

This issued is faced by most of the android developer , So always remember add
all permission while using lazy Image loader class.

Enjoy.... :)
Happy Coding....

Invalid android_key parameter - Facebook login | Android Facebook hash key error

Hello Droid Friends,
Today , I stuck in Facebook login Issue. I am doing facebook login in my android
application but I am getting following error:


Invalid android_key parameter. The key 26gUhN_wYCwwxenlSneyTeCY
does not match any allowed key. Configure your app key hashes at 
http://developers.facebook.com/apps/22061641443615

I followed following steps:
1. downloaded openssl from here and set it in your system environment path.
     
2. Uses following command to generate hashkey on my pc.
      keytool -exportcert -alias androiddebugkey -keystore "C:\Users\Acer\.android\debug.keystore"
                                 | openssl sha1 -binary | openssl base64
 

3. Then I created a new Facebook app  and also added the generated hashkey.

4. I got the Facebook App Id Which I am now using in my and application.


After following all above steps , still I am facing the error "Invalid android_key
parameter" . Then I go to the facebook developer site and find few new things which
comes in Facebook SDK 3.5. And Its helps me in fixing the above "Invalid android_key
parameter" Issue. There Are Two way:

Step-1. When you get this error, check the logcat it returns you a different hashkey,
so you just need to replace the previous hashkey with this one. If you did not getting
any hashkey in logcat error then step-2 helps you.

Step-2: I think this is the best way of generating hashkey bcoz it removes the dependency
of debugkeystore.No need to copy and paste the same debugkeystore on each developer
machine.Here we generate hashkey on the basis of android application package name.
Just used following code for generating the hashkey.

try  {

      PackageInfo info = getPackageManager().
           getPackageInfo(this.getPackageName(), PackageManager.GET_SIGNATURES);

      for (Signature signature : info.signatures) {

          MessageDigest md = MessageDigest.getInstance("SHA");
          md.update(signature.toByteArray());
          Log.d("====Hash Key===",Base64.encodeToString(md.digest(), 
                   Base64.DEFA  ULT));

      }

  } catch (NameNotFoundException e) {

      e.printStackTrace();

  } catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException ex) {

      ex.printStackTrace();

  }




And use this generated hashkey.This will fixed your "Invalid android_key parameter" issue.

Enjoy :)
Happy Coding... :)

Android Home key press behavior | Activity stack confused when launching app

Hello Droid Guys
I found an strange issue with the behavior of Home key press in android.Please
check below link if you want more details about this issue.


Actually, I think this is an android bug. If an app is installed via market, market 
update, or download from browser and the user launches the app directly from the
installer (ie: when the installer completes it offers the user the options to launch(open)
and done and when use select open the app now) it is launched in such a way that 
the OS gets confused.

If, after the app is launched, the user presses the HOME key to return to the home 
screen and then tries to return to the app by selecting it from the list of applications 
(or by putting a shortcut on the home screen and then selecting the shortcut), the OS
launches the root activity of the app AGAIN, bringing the existing task to the foreground
and placing ANOTHER instance of the root activity on top of the existing activity stack.

This behavior is extremely difficult to debug and has certainly caused countless hours 
of head-scratching by developers.

Note: I too found the same issue when I install an app from my mail and directly launch
the app.Go to Activity "A" then goes to Activity "B" and then I pressed "Home button".
Then ,When I open the same app pressing the app launcher on home screen,Instead of 
taking me directly to Activity "B" where I left it last time , It loads the app from the start.



It takes lots of my time to fixed this issue but finally I did that. I found the
way to resolve this problme :) .
I Added following code in the onCreate() method of my launcher activity and then Its
works fine for me.


protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_splash_screen);

if (!isTaskRoot()) {
           Intent intent = getIntent();
           String action = intent.getAction();
           if (intent.hasCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_LAUNCHER) && action != null &&                           action.equals(Intent.ACTION_MAIN)) {
               finish();
               return;
           }
    }
}

Hope, my above code will save some one time.
Enjoy Coding :)

Android ListView Background Color Changes on Scrolling

Hello Friends,
This is very common issue I saw in android with Listview. In one of my app I am using a
listview for displaying the list of Items.I set the background of Listview as blue. Below is 
the Listview code which I am using.

 <ListView
        android:id="@+id/left_drawer"
        android:layout_width="240dp"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_gravity="start"
        android:choiceMode="singleChoice"
        android:background="#0000FF"/>


But, some times when I scroll the Listview the background color will be automatically change
to black or white. Then, I found a solution I added below line in my Listview(in xml file).

android:cacheColorHint="#00000000"
        OR
android:cacheColorHint="@android:color/transparent"


And Finally my Listview code contains following code.....

<ListView
        android:id="@+id/left_drawer"
        android:layout_width="240dp"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_gravity="start"
        android:cacheColorHint="#00000000"
        android:choiceMode="singleChoice"
        android:background="#2A323D"/>

OR at java code,use below line of code

listview.setCacheColorHint(Color.TRANSPARENT);


After adding the above one line in my xml or java file , the Listview background color 
change on scrolling issue will be gone.

Hope , the above code helps some one.
Enjoy coding......

android listview adapter getview() called multiple times

Hello Droid Guys,
Today , I found a strange issue in android custom listView adapter. I found that
the adapter getview() method called multiple times.

adapter getview() called multiple times

On my listview I am showing following Item:
1. User facebook image
2. His|Her Name
3. Some description

As, I told you that getview() method calls multiple time, due to this behavior the Image on
list item some times remain unchanged or same profile picture will be attach on different
user , in listview.
First of all I think that this was an issue of lazy image loader library But I was wronged.
After spent few times on google for searching this issue , I found this link

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2618272/custom-listview-adapter-getview-method-being-called-multiple-times-and-in-no-co

Then After I checked my xml file and I found I am using height = wrap_content in listview.

<ListView
        android:id="@android:id/list"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginLeft="3dp"
        android:layout_marginRight="3dp"
        android:padding="5dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="5dp"
         android:layout_below="@+id/facebook_friend_list_header" >
    </ListView>

And when I changed this to fill_parent

        android:layout_height="fill_parent"

then all problem is resolved and now the getview() method will be called only once.
Also the user profile picture issue will be resolved.

Android Guys , still I was not cleared about the above tricks. Please let me know why
getview() method called multiple times when I am using
android:layout_height="wrap_content" . If some one know the reason then
please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
Enjoy Coding :)

ActionBarSherlock with custom View | Changing sherlock action bar menu item background

Hello Friends,
Today , I am going to share my another android tutorial which is based on the
Sherlock Action Bar. ABS(Action Bar Sherlock) is an support library which helps
to use action bar design pattern over all android devices.

Initially , Action bar is supportable over android version 3.0. But if you want to
provide the interactive user interface on lower version of device too, then
ABS comes in a role.

Asserting Toast message using Robolectric | Testing Toast message Android

Hello Friends,
Today , I am sharing my another android tutorial. In this tutorial I am going to show
how to write the test case for android Toast message using Roboelectric and Junit.

Activity Life Cycle | Android Activity Life Cycle

Hello Droid Guys,

1. If an activity in the foreground of the screen (at the top of the stack), it is active or running.
2. If an activity has lost focus but is still visible (that is, a new non-full-sized or transparent
    activity has focus on top of your activity), it is paused. A
    paused activity is completely alive (it maintains all state and member information and
    remains attached to the window manager), but can be killed by the system in extreme
    low memory situations.
3. If an activity is completely obscured by another activity, it is stopped. It still retains all
    state and member information, however, it is no longer visible to
    the user so its window is hidden and it will often be killed by the system when memory
    is needed elsewhere.
4. If an activity is paused or stopped, the system can drop the activity from memory by
    either asking it to finish, or simply killing its process. When it is displayed again to the
    user, it must be completely restarted and restored to its previous state.

android life cycle


1. onCreate() : Called when the activity is first created. This is where you should do all of
    your normal static set up: create views, bind data to lists,etc.  This method also provides
    you with a Bundle containing the activity's previously frozen state, if there was one.
    Always followed by onStart()

 2. onRestart() : Called after your activity has been stopped, prior to it being started again.
     Always followed by onStart()

 3. onStart() : Called when the activity is becoming visible to the user.
                     Followed by onResume() if the activity comes to the foreground, or onStop()
                      if it becomes hidden.                

 4. onResume() :  Called when the activity will start interacting with the user. At this point
                           your activity is at the top of the activity stack, with user input going to it.
     Always followed by onPause().      

 5. onPause() : Called when the system is about to start resuming a previous activity.
     This is typically used to commit unsaved changes to persistent data,stop animations
     and other things that may be consuming CPU, etc. Implementations of this method
     must be very quick because the next activity will not be resumed until this method
     returns.Followed by either onResume() if the activity returns back to the front, or
     onStop() if it becomes invisible to the user.  

 6. onStop() : Called when the activity is no longer visible to the user, because another
     activity has been resumed and is covering this one. This may happen either because a new activity is being started, an existing one is being brought in front of this one, or this one is being destroyed.Followed by either onRestart() if this activity is coming back to interact with the user, or onDestroy() if this activity is going away.

 7. onDestroy() : The final call you receive before your activity is destroyed. This can
     happen either because the activity is finishing (someone called finish() on it, or
     because the system is temporarily destroying this instance of the activity to save space.
    You can distinguish between these two scenarios with the isFinishing() method.

This is because on LinkedIn there is a few limits, the number of message you can
share on linkedIn. Check below two links for more knowledge:
