No Popup Menu with Video Displaying

I have a video running without any menu code.

I also have menu code running with static images.

However, when I try to run similar menu code with video either playing or paused, the menu doesn’t display. The video uses SurfaceView and SurfaceHolder, so are these preventing the Popup Menu from showing? Othetwise I can’t pinpoint the cause.

Any ideas?

@paturn === what is the size of your surface layout???

Apologies for the delay in replying, but I’ve been away from the computer for a while.
The size is set as
metaRetriever.extractMetadata(MediaMetadataRetriever.METADATA_KEY_VIDEO_WIDTH); and HEIGHT.

Idon’t understand it well, but the video displays OK; just no menu.

@paturn === this is the size for your video, not the size of your surface view

As far as I can tell, it is the size also passed to the surface.

I’ll have to confirm or otherwise tomorrow

Slightly wrong. The parameters are copied to video_w video_h and then copied to
to set the position, and
video_width = 3 * width / 4;
// width is screen width; also
video_height = height / 4;
are used in
act.addContentView(mySurface, new ViewGroup.LayoutParams(video_width, video_height)); // act is the Activity

The video displays OK. It’s just the menu which doesn’t display.
Do you need the code for the menu?

Problem solved.

It hadn’t been fully initiated in setup.
