Hi,

We our site with secured "https:" for our internal stuff.  We use android and IOS to connect to it.  However we have 1 user that  has an android and they try to connect they get a message "Cannot establish a secure connection with the server.  This can be a problem with the server or maybe a need of a certificate of the client don't have".  Yet all others works ok.

What can be happening to the device that causes  this error?

Thank you in advance.

How can I make the show desktop menu stay at bottom of a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone?

Currently I have to push up at the bottom of the Samsung Galaxy S8 screen to make this menu appear. I would like for it to stay at the bottom of the phone screen at all times.

How can I prevent a Samsung Galaxy S8 from constantly prompting to join Wi-Fi networks?

If the phone finds a Wi-Fi network and has the password saved for that network I want it to join that network but otherwise if it finds a Wi-Fi network such as a Comcast Wi-Fi network that a Comcast subscriber can join I don't want it to prompt to join that network.

This Android phone also has the secure Wi-Fi app installed.

I have written an Android app in Delphi.

I attached two pictures so as to see the problem.
The app starts with login:
-first the user click in login name field then writes in the login name
-then he clicks in the password field and writes in the password

On big screens, this is not an issue because both the keyboard and the two fields can be seen.

But on small screens the keyboard window gets over the fields and the keyboard window cannot be hidden!

Just to clarify the upper "empty" grey section, in reality, is not empty I only didn't want to show the contents here (therefore I can't move the login boxes to that area).

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi,

I want two Android devices to communicate with each other Via USB only.
I have two apps, One as a USB Server and other as a USB client. The Server Device recognizes the client device and is able to fetch the USB configuration. But the client device does not recognizes the server device.
Can someone help me head in the right direction or let me know what am I doing wrong?


Thanks.

I have my Office 365 set up. The email is working fine. (mostly). My problem is with the calendar. If I change an event on my phone (Outlook for Android) e.g. to another time, it appears to do so but when I check the phone again - it has reverted to the original time. I have tried resetting the account. Hasn't helped. It's probably a sync issue but where in Outlook do I find those sync settings? Thanks as always.

We have an app we've been running successfully for a year now on Microsoft Surface 3 tablets with Windows 10, pairing the Zebra LS3578 scanner via bluetooth for barcode input.  This has worked almost flawlessly on multiple tablet/scanner installations.

Now we've converted our app to run on Android, so I am trying to use the Samsung Tab A tablet with the same LS3578 scanner.  The problem is that the bluetooth connection keeps dropping.  When I say it is "dropping", I am referring to how when I pair them, at Settings > Connections> Bluetooth  it shows this on the tablet screen like it is supposed to:

Paired Devices

LS3578 M1V09J24T
Connected as input device

But now and then, for no obvious reason, the line disappears that shows "Connected as input device", and if I touch the tool button on the right it shows "Text input" with the slider to the left (off).  If I touch "Text input", the slider will go to the right to turn it back on, it will briefly show "Connecting..." on the screen, and it will beep and say at the bottom "Bluetooth keyboard connected".  And then I'm fine until the next time it decides to disconnect.

There is no clear pattern or reason.  It is definitely NOT the easy obvious stuff like the scanner being out of range or low battery.  It does this with multiple brand new Samsung Tab A tablets and Zebra LS3578 scanners.  It might happen once an hour or once every minute or two.  I know I can go to Language and Input > Physical Keyboard and turn on …

I've recently installed and fully configured a 2013 Exchange server. We initially tested Activesync with the server and had it work perfectly on both an Android and iPhone. We had some complications with some other things after, and since then we haven't been able to connect mobile devices to the email accounts.

I ran the test at https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com and this is the results.

Issue being that this is not Exchange 2013, but seems to be similar in issue. Anyone know steps to take to correct this?

Hi, Our android phone has been binging with notifications, and I finally realized that they are news items coming in. We're in Mexico, with Telcel, and we don't have google or yahoo accounts on the phone. I can't see any apps that might have news, and the only account I have is whatsapp.

Any idea how I can track down and turn off these notifications? Thanks!

I am new to Xamarin, C# and SQLite. I found a article https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/mt736454.aspx.
Basically I can get the Android code to work properly but I can't get the IOS code to work.
The emulator starts on the mac but then I get the error that you see in the attached file. I understand that it is due to something not getting passed but don't understand what that is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated so that I can move forward with this project.

Thanks in advance

I have added a home location to Google Maps on my Galaxy S6 phone, but am not able to add a work location.

On the screen where you set these addresses (Your places, labelled), my home address is there, and there is a spot for my work address, but when I tap "set work address". the box flashes to acknowledge the tap, but nothing happens.
In researching the problem, I found some mention that "Web & App Activity" must be on for setting your work address. So I went to the settings, and there is a line that say it is off, but no indicator of how to change it.

Every search I do is filled with discussion about not being able to set a work address because Google Maps won't accept a name of a place. My problem is different since I don't have the opportunity to add anything.

Hello,

I have an app which I wrote in Delphi Seattle.

The user can change the language from the app, but I want to change the language automatically when somebody first starts the app.
E.g. if the language of the phone is English then it would switch to English, if the language of the phone is German then it would switch to German etc.

For this, I need to know at program start the language of the phone. How can I get this info?

Thank you

A friend of mine is an Android user.  In the past, I could use Messages on my iPhone and Mac to text message them.  The outline of the messages with them would be green (which usually indicates they're a non iPhone user).

A recent update on my Macbook have suddenly made it not possible for me to get texts from my friend.  I still get texts on my iPhone, but they are not showing up in Messages anymore on my Macbook.

How do I turn this back on?
