Description Michael Meeks 2013-02-13 13:48:09 UTC
The elapsed time tracking in the sdremote is just broken. I attach a partial patch to improve it but even this is awful.

I think we should have a simple combo-box / list of pre-canned / selectable times: 5 mins, 15 minutes etc. and (perhaps as an extra option) allow people to select a "Custom" time.

The setting should also be persisted.

The code is in android/sdremote/ variously - with some more code pointers in the patch (although the patch is mostly a throw-away thing).

Would love some input here !

It's also worth noticing that building the androidremote is pretty easy if you have the SDK installed - there is no need to build much of LibreOffice, and you can turn a development iteration around pretty fast; just:

make clean all install # and quickly un-install on the device in parallel

inside android/sdremote :-)

It should also be noted that the 'Next' button in that editable time entry behaves very oddly indeed - something is busted there.

I am starting work on it during this week.
Comment 5 Otakar Chasák 2013-04-07 21:45:06 UTC
Edittext replaced by AutoComplete - user can type his own value, or choose from predefined value. Choice is made persistent. Elapsed time is now repaired.

I will have to apply styles on predefined values.
