    Hi, Folks.

    The documentation for the SearchManager says it will send an intent with the search string the user entered to the activity from which it was invoked. If that activity has set launchMode="singleTop" in the manifest, the intent will come in through the onNewIntent callback.

    I have been unable to get this behavior when the activity was started by a TabHost. Instead of calling onNewIntent, the activity's onCreate method is called, resulting in a new instance of the activity on top of the activity stack.

    Has anyone else had this problem? If so, have they found a solution?

    Thanks and regards,

    --Lou

    I am very new to forums. What is the best forum for a question like mine, and how do I get it there?
