Hey all, just wanted to post another test build of how I'm revamping the settings menu a little.

It should look like this on tablets on 4.0+ atleast:

Test Build

If any settings don't seem to work, just tell me in this thread and I'll try to fix them.

I'd like to try it out but I can't use mediafire now for some reason. Any way you could upload it to http://sharemobile.ro or maybe rapidshare?

The mediafire link seems broken (only a white site, no download).

Odd, mediafire works fine for me in Chrome.

Anyhow, here's a rapidshare one: Test Build

Ok, RS works.
Your menu is OK, but has a small disadvantage on my HC tablet. To access all options, you must scroll.
Can't realy say which is the better one. I like both versions.
If you find a fix for the hide/unhide bug with the 2 status bars, by pressing the back button, would be great.  :)

Is it possible, that you create your tests with a different package name ? So we can keep Pauls and you version for better comparison without the need to delete one of them first.

The scrolling is better in my option than one screen loaded with options from top to bottom. It makes it look a little nicer as well. Plus, the preference screen is now actually using the PreferenceActivity and PreferenceScreen classes for android instead of the one Paul has made.

I certainly don't mean that in a bad way though, just that if android's built in versions of the same thing are better in long term than reinventing the wheel so to say. If PreferenceActivity and PreferenceScreen at some point become deprecated, it'll be easier to move over to the new one. Not to mention it also reduces the amount of code that needs to be compiled for just the interface, reducing code size overall. There's still work to be done on it though (hence this test, but you already know this). So overall, this is purely done out of a way to have better code maintainability

Also, about using a different package name, I'll do that from now on :)

Now, about the two bars that interfere on tablet devices when using the emu, these cannot in any way be hidden, on mobile phone using Android 4.0+ it is possible (from what I've read, correct me if I'm wrong), but there is no method I know of for hiding them on tablets.

Yes, to make the code more efficient, your way is the better solution.
About the status bars. I mean the problem, I described on post #378. See the YT video.
The goal os, that if you press back, the lower bar will be dotted out and the upper action bar should be hidden. Both at same time, not only one at the same time.
Yongzh did it on n64oid and the option is used in other programms to.

Ahh, ok, I see what you mean. I'll try to look into solving this.

It does this correctly on my Galaxy Nexus, which has ICS.. maybe the problem is specific to HC?

This is also a possibility, considering the tablet I develop on also doesn't have this problem.

Nice! Love it! The smaller font takes more acclaimation to read and larger fonts for me are good as I have quite poor vision. Love the changes. Id love to see the entire emulator with a layout like that. Just tried it out on my new Pantech Element tablet and for some reason it runs slower than on my phone.

It also works fine on HTC EVO 3D ICS 4.0.3 Rooted

Here's what the settings menu looks like in the test build on my Honeycomb 3.2 tablet

Still looks pretty good.  :)
