    Exclamation Android New Dialog Control dialog text looks small

    With the new object as part in MMF2 Build 258.2 called "Android New Dialog Control", the text produced from all the dialogs (with exception of the agreement) look really small on my device.

    If I was to compare this with an non-MMF2 Android application, the text look large enough to be comfortably read on a mobile device. Is this normal? A bug? Any plans on fixing/changing the font size? Specific to Android 4.x?

    This issue wasn't present prior to this 'new' extension, when I was using StephenL's beta extension called "Android Dialogs".

    For comparison, I've used the development settings warning as an example:

    Figure 1 - Development Tools in System Settings

    Figure 2 - Android Dialogs Beta Extension
    Android_Old.jpg

    Figure 3 - Android New Dialog Control Extension
    Android_New.jpg

    I've tried all sort of combinations, the themes and dialog sizes, but none of them fix the size of the text.

    Is there a solution to this? Or some sort of bug?

    Edit: I think it might be a bug. I've reported it on the bug tracker. http://bugbox.clickteam.com/issues/630

    It's been almost a month and it appears no progress has happened with this issue. I would appreciate if this will be confirmed a fix or not.

    Despite being told that:

    That's not how it should of been implemented. If the system UI and StephenL's extension can display the text size properly [on my device at least], I don't see this as an excuse.

    All bugs reported via the BugTracker will be dealt with by their respective developers. Please allow time for the changes, atm Fernando not only has to deal with current Android bug list but also migrating Android over to 2.5... this could explain the time thus far.

    That's very true Danny, thank you for the clarification. I'll patiently wait another month or so for a fix.

    I'm more concerned if this will be fixed or not from the sounds of it originally being 'intentionally' set like that. If I'm aware this won't be changed, I should abandon the extension in flavour of one that will work, which I wouldn't want to do.

    indeed Stephen´s dialog object only do internal mode as you may see and not use theme, so one problem with all devices is that are truly theme dependent.

    in the last version fusion 2.5 the text should be bigger and adapted to all devices.

    please let me know if the text is bigger or is the same in your device.

    I regret to inform that using the latest available build (R280.27) of Fusion 2.5, the dialogs produced by your extension still appear small then what they should be.

    For comparison, Android New Dialog Control Extension:
    Screenshot_2013-12-08-19-27-11.jpg

    Android Dialogs Beta Extension:
    Screenshot_2013-12-08-19-27-22.jpg

    (For the observant, it's not the stock Android font, it's one called Ubuntu)

    Android properties:
    Build API: 14
    Min. Android Version: 2.3/2.3.1/2.3.2
    Target Android Version: 4.1
    Require GPU: unchecked
    Display Mode: OpenGL ES 1.1
    Screen Orientation: Any (automatic)
    Display: Adjust window size

    I don't think these settings should affect much, but that's what I've got them set to for the purposes of this test and my actual app.

    Target phone:
    Model: Samsung Galaxy S Advance (GT-I9070P)
    Screen Resolution: 480x800
    Resolution from Android Object: 720x1035 (from another app using "Fit inside and adjust window size" mode)
    Android Version: 4.1.2

    I also tested this on an Android x86 tablet hybrid, which doesn't appear to have any problems.

    This is a bit vague for me to understand... I am aware that the DPI affects size and density, I've still got an app with a tiny sized font on the dialog boxes it produces, particularly on smartphones.

    I tried this again but setting the dialog theme to internal (under "Special Config") as you hinted at, with no difference.

    The problem remains unresolved. This object is failing to adapt to my device's actual size, and possibly other similar smartphone devices. I'm looking for a solution, or a change in the object's behaviour.

    Exclamation Bump

    This issue still hasn't cleared, despite it saying it's closed on the bug tracker.

    I've updated the API from 14 to 19 as well as all Fusion updates in the meantime and there is still tiny font for dialogs produced in the "New Android Dialog Object" on my smartphone ... very annoying.

    Some further testing with a simple app:
    - Android x86 Tablet -- Runs 4.0.4 -- Reports as runtime 15 -- 768x1293 -- No apparent issues.
    - Android x86 -- Runs 2.2 -- Reports as runtime 8 -- 600x750 -- No apparent issues.
    - Android x86 -- Runs 4.3 -- Reports as runtime 18 -- 600x707 -- No apparent issues.
    - Samsung Galaxy S Advance -- Runs 4.1.2 -- Reports as runtime 16 -- 480x724 -- The text is too damn small!

    I've built a simple app that output two dialogs. The first dialog is via the older, beta extension. The second dialog is using the newer, problematic object. [ATTACH]The APK is here.[/ATTACH]

    I've been reading up on supporting multiple screens but I do not fully understand what's causing this? I will guess its to do with DPI, but one object can do it but not the 'new' one?

    I hope we can get to a conclusion and fix for this.

    Hi,

    this is an issue that depends on the device and not the runtime some devices have small font for a specific theme and in other devices they have another value.

    send me the apk does not help me here and does not help me to give you an appropriate answer, it runs OK, here in all the device i have.

    what i need to know, is how are setting your flags inside the android project (look in android tab and check if "use default text .." is checked or not), what align and size of dialog you are using.

    also send me a screen capture in your device using this

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...id_Display.apk

    thanks in advance
    Regards,


    Fernando Vivolo
