5. Android Cookbook
We assume you know the basics of the Java language. If not, see “Preface” on page xiii. We also assume you know the basics of the Java Standard Edition API (since this forms the basis of Android's runtime libraries) as well as the basics of Android. The terms "activity", "intent", and "content provider", while notnecessarily being what you dream about at night, should at least be familiar to you.
What's in this Book?
Chapter 1, Getting Started, takes you through the steps of setting up the Android development environment and building several simple applications of the well-known "Hello World" type .
Chapter 2, Designing a successful Application, covers some of the differences in mobile computing that will hit developers coming from desktop and enterprise software environments, and talks about how mobile design (in particular Android design) differs from those other environments.
Testing is often an afterthought for some developers, so we put this early on, in Chapter 3, Testing. Not so you'll skip it, but so you'll read and heed. We talk about unit testing individual components as well as testing out your entire application in a wellcontrolled way.
In Chapter 4, Content Providers, we show you how to make an application that can be used by other applications through something as simple but ubiquitous (in Android) as the URL.
Chapter 5, Graphics, covers a range of topics related to graphics, including use of the graphical drawing and compositing facilities in Android as well as using desktop tools to develop graphical images, textures, icons, and so on that will be incorporated into your finished application.
Every mobile app needs a GUI, so Chapter 6, Graphical User Interface, covers all the ins and outs of GUI development for Android. Examples are given both in XML and in hard-coded GUI development.
Chapter 7, GUI: ListView, focuses on one of the most important Graphical User Interfaces in Android, the ListView. Android is rich in multimedia capabilities.
Chapter 8, Multimedia, shows how.
Chapter 9, Data Persistence, shows how to save data into files, databases and so on. And how to retreive it later, of course. Android started out as an operating system for mobile telephones.
Chapter 10, Telephone Applications, shows how to control and react to the telephone device that is in most mobile devices nowadays. Mobile devices are, for the most part, always-on and always-connected. This has a major impact on how people use them and think about them.
Chapter 11, Networked Applications, shows the coding for traditional networked applications.
This is followed by Chapter 12, Gaming and Animation,
Chapter 13, Social Networking.The now-ubiquitous Global Positioning System has
also had major implications on
how mobile applications work.
14, Location and Map Applications, discusses how to find your location, how to
get map data from Google and OpenStreetMap, and
how applications can be location-aware in ways that are just now being explored.
Chapter 15, Accellerometer, talks about the sensors built into most Android devices and how to use them.
There may be a Chapter 16, Bluetooth, if there's enough to say about it, going way beyond connecting your Bluetooth(TM) headset to your phone. This is followed by
Chapter 17, System and Device Control.
In Chapter 18, Other Programming Languages, we explore the use of other programming languages to write all or part of your Android application. Examples include C, Perl, Python, Lisp, and other languages.

16. Build Your Own ASP.NET 4 Website Using C# & VB
ASP.NET is useful in more ways than one. If you aren’t already a .NET
developer, it’s the gateway to learning the framework, and the languages that
you can use to program against it. The most common languages, and the ones
covered in this book, are C# and VB.NET. Skills in these languages and
framework go way beyond web development.
ASP.NET is this framework, and with its Web Forms and Controls technologies, you can use rapid development methodologies to get your application up and running quickly. Being fully standards-compliant, you can also make it beautiful using CSS. Beyond this, particularly for professional, commercial applications, you’ll need tools that allow database connectivity to be smart, secure, and efficient, and ASP.NET with its ADO.NET technology provides this for you.
This book provides you with everything you need to know to skill up in ASP.NET development with Web Forms technology. It’s a fantastic learning tool, written in an approachable and informative way. You’ll be amazed at what you can build, quickly and easily.
ASP.NET really is a unique technology, and it provides new and extremely efficient ways to create web applications using the programming language with which you feel most comfortable. Though it can take some time to learn, ASP.NET is simple to use. Whether you want to create simple web forms, feature-rich shopping carts, or even complex enterprise applications, ASP.NET can help you do it. All the tools you’ll need to get up and running are immediately available and easy to install, and require very little initial configuration.
This book will be your gentle introduction to the wonderful world of ASP.NET, teaching you the foundations step by step. First, you’ll learn the theory; then, you’ll put it into practice as we work through practical exercises together. Finally, we’ll stretch your abilities by introducing the MVC Framework and other advanced topics. To demonstrate some of the more complex functionality, and to put the theory into a cohesive, realistic context, we’ll develop a project through the course of this book.
This book is aimed at beginner, intermediate, and advanced web designers looking to make the leap into server-side programming with ASP.NET.We expect that you’ll already feel comfortable with HTML, CSS, and a little knowlegable about database design although we will cover quite a few databatse topics along the way. Developers in open-source web development languages such as PHP, Java, or Ruby will make an excellent transition to learning ASP.NET.

21. Corel DRAW: The Official Guide
Create fine art and commercial graphics with one powerful tool! CorelDRAW X4: The Official Guide shows you how to get a visual message across with impact and style; edit photos; build captivating layouts; and compose scenes in a clean, attention-getting style. Learn how to illustrate like the pros, justify and flow text around shapes, and truly understand digital color. You'll also discover how to create 3D objects, apply special effects, and integrate different media to build outstanding graphics. Packed with expert tips and techniques for creating professional-level art, this is your one-stop CorelDRAW X4 resource.
CorelDRAW X4: The Official Guide is your handbook to the most feature-filled drawing application you could hope for, and as you’d rightly expect, the chapters contain comprehensive explanations of what tools, pop-up menus, commands, dockers, and other elements do. But the prize in this book is that you’ll learn not only the value of the features, but also what they’re good for—how each tool, command, option, and feature can be used to best serve a design problem you want to solve. Knowledge is fine—you can get facts from Wikipedia and around every
corner on the Web, the bookstore, and your friends and family. When you put facts to use, however, you eventually gain skill you can tap into in the future, build upon, and eventually your
knowledge becomes wisdom—something an ambitious, expressive designer has an affinity for— right up there with water and oxygen.
This book is divided into eight parts plus an appendix listing keyboard shortcuts that’ll speed up your work in CorelDRAW. As you might expect, the parts follow a progression, from
a very basic introduction to later chapters that delve into special effects and even photo editing. If you’re the type of reader who likes to begin at the beginning and make a linear voyage to
finish at the appendix, you won’t be surprised. However, the chapters are structured and fairly compartmentalized to address a specific topic; if you want fast solutions for specific areas
within CorelDRAW, you can also “pick and choose.” One of the wonderful things about books is that you can skip ahead and rewind—just as you do with DVD movies!
■ Part I starts you off with the new features in CorelDRAW X4, a must-read for users who’ve made the upgrade. Also in this part you’ll be guided through CorelDRAW options, thoroughly pore through the menus and palettes (including CorelDRAW dockers), and you’ll learn how to set up the workspace to make you feel right at home. New users are encouraged to set aside some quality time for this part—you’ll save a lot of time later when you want to get to the Fun Stuff.
Part II focuses on navigating and measuring the workspace and your document, and on how to size things up, from measuring objects to moving and rotating them. You’ll also learn how to set up a multi-page document, create brochures and flyers, and you’ll see that each page can be a unique size and orientation. ■
Part III gets you up and running with two of the most important tools used in designing original artwork, the Pen Tools and the Shape Tool. You’ll also get a handle on creating shapes using various presets CorelDRAW has to offer. Once you have your object created and edited to your liking, it’s only natural to make more of them; this part shows you how to arrange, group, duplicate, clone, and perform other tasks in your document to make laying out what you’ve created an inspired effort.
■ Part IV dives into typography, working with Artistic and Paragraph Text, spelling and other CorelDRAW proofing tools, and some special effects you can create for fancy headlines. Sometimes it’s better to just say it instead of show it; CorelDRAW has the ideal tools for both the text and graphic message, and this part of the book also shows how to blend the two vehicles artistically for what you want to communicate.
■ Part V puts the meat on the bones of the objects you design; in these chapters you’ll learn everything you need to know about object fills, outline properties, and most importantly, about digital color. Learn how to define and apply uniform fills, bitmap fills, and colors from different color models to your work so they’ll print exactly as you intend them to. And if you need a map or schematic drawing, check out this part for the lowdown on creating dashed lines, lines with arrowheads, and more. ■
Part VI is a truly special part; CorelDRAW comes with a boatload of special effect features, and these chapters take you through the steps to distorting, blending, and creating photorealistic effects such as object transparency and soft, life-like shadows.
If you’ve ever been stuck at a point where your design needs that “special something,” look into this special part of the book. Learn how to create shading as you’ve seen in airbrush illustrations, design chrome and glass-like objects, and create a seamless integration between what you draw and the digital photos you can place in your document.
■ Part VII shows you that 3D object and scene creation doesn’t require a megabuck modeling program—you’ll find what you need to make scenes in camera-perfect perspective with CorelDRAW’s Effects menu. You’ll also learn how to extrude objects, letting CorelDRAW perform calculations to create a side view of the front of objects you draw. It’s fun, and the result can have the visual impact you need to create new worlds and sell your ideas.
Part VIII (that’s “8” if you’re tired of reading Roman numerals) is truly an advanced section of the book, but it’s accessible to readers of all skill levels, and its contents take you through working with photographs, getting your prints looking their best, and more. See how to work with CorelDRAW’s extensive host of print options and features, learn the techniques for output to paper, film, transfer materials, and get to know CorelDRAW’s pre-flight options so your time and the expense of professional printing are on your side. You’ll also see how to get the best look out of imported bitmaps, beginning right with CorelDRAW’s Raw Lab. Learn how to work with image resolutions, and see how to export your vector drawings to bitmap file format.
You’ll also want to pore through CorelDRAW’s HTML publishing features—make that print ad you’ve designed into a Web banner with only a few clicks. Finally, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is documented. See how to write simple scripts without actually writing a line of code (it’s visual; you record cursor movements), and speed up your work by automating common tasks with VBA. ■ The Appendix to the book is full of shortcuts you can use in CorelDRAW. Find a task you need to perform faster and the Appendix lists the combinations of keys you can press to get you where you need to go.
