Thanks Fox

I tried that sample code but i still get a crash
at this line
b.Initialize(File.DirAssets, "26833.png")
the error log says this

android.view.ViewRoot$CalledFromWrongThreadException: Only the original thread that created a view hierarchy can touch its views.

so i dont know whats happening. It is the same error line when i ran my code

:confused:

EDIT:
Can't believe i missed this, prolly cause i got the same error with my code. Anyway it works since i changed 26833.png to 26833.jpg

You have an option to show a second pic or text on the page 1? and other pages.. at me there is no pic / Text on the page :)

Unable to show text but can show another pic not on the back of the page but on the subsequent page. by loading another image to the next page

When I rotate device the program just exits as does the demo. Any one else have that problem?

Are you using version 1.2? It works fine on the three devices that I have. Look in the unfiltered logs for an exception.

The GetBitmap and GetPages run on the OpenGL rendering thread, not the application main thread so you can't touch any view or you'll get an exception. I'll put that in the xml. You probably got a file not found exception and Basic4android couldn't display the error message box because it was not on the main thread.

Andrew,

Using Ver 2.2

The jpgs all display ok forward and backward. It is only when i rotate from Vertical to Horizontal or vice versa the program drops out.

I assume you version mean 1.2. What device and Android version are you using?

Are you sure there isn't an exception showing in the log as by itself that doesn't make sense as an application normally doesn't die without any indication of what went wrong?

Does it do the same with the unedited demo from the library archive?

The device is a viewsonic and android version is 2.2. I updated from 1.5 cos it did the same in 1.5

This is the log with the demo . i cleared the log file then rotated so this is the entire log as it shuts down

Sorry yes the example is the latest one 1.2

The cpu on the device is atom

Which device is it? I assume you mean an x86 Intel Atom! If so then my guess it that it is a bug, probably in OpenGL, related to the port of Android to that architecture. All my devices are ARM based.

I set the IDE to allow only Landscape and when i turned it this is what i got in the log. On Demo 1.2

There's something strange happening on that device. With an application restricted to a single orientation you should never get a pause event when you rotate the device.

You could try commenting out the PageTurner.OnPause and PageTurner.OnResume lines but I don't hold out much hope. It looks like a device specific problem to me I'm afraid.

its Viewsonic vpad10.

it only happens with this program. All other tests i have tried work ok

i already tried commenting everthing out of the two subs. no good

Definitely x86 then. Have you tried the OpenGL library demo and this example?

I'm afraid that I can think of nothing do do to the library code as it runs fine on other devices and there is no indication of what the cause of the failure might be on the Viewpad.

B4X:
Sub PageTurner_GetBitmap(Width As Int, Height As Int, Page As Int) As Bitmap 'Called when the Bitmap for the given page number is required. Return the Bitmap
   Dim bmp As Bitmap
   Dim cnv As Canvas
   Dim c As Canvas
   Dim b As Bitmap
   Dim brect As Rect

   bmp.InitializeMutable(Width, Height)
   cnv.Initialize2(bmp)
   
   cnv.DrawColor(PageColors(Page))
   
   If page = 0 Then
   
   cnv.DrawText( "Page 0 Text Center", Width/2, 180dip, Typeface.DEFAULT, 24, Colors.White, "CENTER")
   
   b.Initialize(File.DirAssets, "picture.png")
   brect.Initialize(0,0,b.Width, b.Height)
   cnv.DrawBitmap(b, Null, brect)
   
   
If page = 1 Then 
cnv.DrawText( "Page1 Text", Width/2, 260dip, Typeface.DEFAULT, 24, Colors.White, "CENTER")
   
   If Page = PageColors.Length - 1 Then
   cnv.DrawText( "Letzte Seite", Width/2, 100dip, Typeface.DEFAULT, 24, Colors.White, "CENTER")
   End If
   End If
   End If
   Return bmp
   
End Sub
Where is my problem Page 0 is fantastic if i changed to page 1 no error but just a blue page no text nothing...

The First demo will not run. When i load it a message says to install b4a into a path without spaces and that the path hass illegal characters.
Both of which are incorrect.

The second demo crashes the same way when rotated

I'm afraid that I can think of nothing do do to the library code as it runs fine on other devices and there is no indication of what the cause of the failure might be on the Viewpad.

BooHooooooo


Thanks very much for your efforts regardless Andrew. It is still a great library even though it will not run on my device

With an application restricted to a single orientation you should never get a pause event when you rotate the device.
Just to nitpick a little for the sake of complete accuracy (at least as far as my Toshiba Thrive tablet goes). The steps below (copied from the Wiki) describes how an app restricted to a single orientation can be made to rotate. While the steps below only talk about the restart, before that point Pause will be executed (unless this is something peculiar to the Thrive).

1. While in your app, the device goes into Sleep mode, either through a time-out or by the user pressing the device's Sleep (power) button.

2. The user presses the power button to bring the device out of Sleep mode to the security/start-up screen and rotates that screen before exiting it to return to your app.

3. Your app will come back up in the supported orientation, but Android will have started it over as if the app itself had been rotated.

Yep, There is definitely something wierd about this device. Not only does it drop out on a change of orientation but if i start the program from the device (as opposed to compiling and running from the bridge) it always starts in landscape regardless of how i am holding the device.

Gradient on underside of the page

Firstly, can I just say what a fantastic job you have done with this library Andrew. The demo runs great on my milestone. :sign0188:
Sorry to nit pick (as I could never have achieved what you have here)
I have looked everywhere in the documentation, but to no gain.
Is there a way to control the colors shown in the gradient on the underside of the turning page?
