hi, is there a way to add a kind of cancel-button to the message label on a activity indicator (on android)? for example, if i indicate a search for geo coordinates, and it doesn't get something back from gps, it would be nice to cancel the operation. of course i could add a timeout-event, but…
The back button would be the way to cancel on Android. That capability doesn't currently exist, but it could be added.
what I would do is create a custom view that had a timer and if in a reasonable time there was no response, I would notify the user and have them cancel or try again. just my .02…
thanks clint, that's what i actually do. but i have seen activity indicator with a cancel button on android phones, so i know android supports it. that's why i asked. or i make it a feature request… –u
