Picker Example Code

Apologies in advance - I know this has already been asked, but I'm having trouble following the flow of questions/answers/responses in this "forum" … and the ticket(s) in lighthouse aren't really very clear either.

Android 1.6 API, Titanium Dev 1.2.1, Titanium SDK 1.4

I can't make picker's work - period.

The 1.4 Kitchensink does not incorporate the sample picker modules. I've tried putting them into a blank app, and they bomb.

I guess I'm asking 1) do pickers work for Android in 1.4?, If yes, are there working samples someplace that I can examine?

(I read in a post here that in KS you can go to "Controls" –> "Pickers" … in 1.4, that's not an option)

Thanks in advance for your help :)

    If a KS example is disabled for android, simply comment out the relevant parts of the main_windows/*.js file. For example, to enable the picker menu, comment out lines 15, 16 and 22 of main_windows/controls.js. Of course, some examples may crash the app, but those are the functions that are not yet supported.

    Regarding pickers, they work for me on the latest continuous build of 1.4.X and 1.5.X. See this video of it running in 1.4.X (ignore the tab problem - this is caused by 1.4 not supporting JSS, unlike 1.5).

    • I didn't want to modify the KS code, so I put the modules in a seperate app. However, I commented out those KS lines as you suggested … and all pickers fail in KS 1.4.0.

      Which version of the SDK is the app in that video running?

      As for continuous builds, I've been holding off on upgrading because I've been waiting for somebody to say that version x.x.x is stable. Is there a stable version > 1.4.0?

    • Okay, so I bit the bullet and installed 1.4.3. The pickers do work as you said. (Even though I think I've decided to switch to a webview and use dropdown boxes instead)

      Thanks for your help :)

  • I don't believe they are. I ended up faking it out by using an options dialog. I haven't tried with the 1.5 series nightly builds.

    • Thanks. I guess I hadn't thought about an options dialog … kinda changes my strategy a bit to go that route, but I appreciate the input :)
