@ Leledumbo,

Yes, we need "lazbuild" to rebuild ".so" in "LATE" [IDE plugin]...

Thank you!

EDITED:

1. @xinyiman: I will test it!

2.Roadmap: I'm finishing support to ActionBar! and a complete redesign of jMenu component (and NEW jContextMenu) with total support to it and Icons!

lazbuild is part of lazarus, not laz4android, so it should be deducible automatically.

Finally, it works with Lazarus trunk on Linux. I can create a project, but somehow I can't drop any component on the module. Any component on any palette will redirect me to standard tab with no component selected. Existing projects, such as the demos, can be opened and I can see the form designer with components rendered fine. Same problem with dropping new components, though.

Weird thing is that I can drop components from android bridge tab to lcl form, but not on android module. Maybe I should try on stable lazarus.

EDIT:
It's a regression.

Hello, jmpessoa. As more features are added, lazandroidmodule becomes bigger and bigger. Even hello, world now eats nearly 1 MB apk (with .so itself eats 2.6 MB uncompressed). Do you think it's the time to refactor the code so only needed ones get linked in?

I agree with you. From Pascal side I can do the this task just now... If you can point out some bottleneck and offer any suggestions will be very well accepted!

Thank You!

Nice work jmpessoa!

Hints:
- please can you include in first post Fast tutorial? (from third page?). Its hard to find how to start.
- maybe fast_tutorial_eclipse_users.txt isn't good naming, when I downloaded zip, I spend half hour searching for install instructions. What about rename it to eg.: install_tutorial_eclipse_users.txt (install* is important )

Great job, jmpessoa! I haven't even got the time to look at what to do, but you already strip it down to half in size!
