Why can't i get my GUI return back to recording mode... HELP...

Posted 10 April 2011 - 05:51 AM

Hi i'm new to android so that's why i come to find help... Hi an introduction to the app i'm doing here, i'm actually doing an car blackbox app..

I had my service run the video recording processes in the background so i should be able to leave the app for a while and come back to the Video recording GUI with the surfaceview but my application was force to close when i return to the app. So is the problem related to onresume() method or something else? If its yes what i should do in order to get my application GUI to return to the video recording surfaceview and still running the background recording using the service rather than giving me an error? Can someone help please...

public class CameraTest extends Activity implements SurfaceHolder.Callback {
   
   private static final String TAG = "Exception";
   
   public static SurfaceView surfaceView;
   public static SurfaceHolder surfaceHolder;

        surfaceView = (SurfaceView)findViewById(R.id.surface_camera);
        surfaceHolder = surfaceView.getHolder();
        surfaceHolder.addCallback(this);
        
        surfaceHolder.setType(SurfaceHolder.SURFACE_TYPE_PUSH_BUFFERS);
        
        Button btnStart = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button4);
        btnStart.setonclickListener(new View.onclickListener()
