Android :: TextView Inside LinearLayout Stretches The LinearLayout

Aug 21, 2010

If I have 2 LinearLayouts split %50/%50 everything is fine. Weights are 1 and 1. As soon as I add a TextView inside the top LinearLayout, it stretches that layout. I use "wrap_content" as the documentation says I should when it comes to weights. As you can see the red and green should be split evenly and text on grey background should be inside red box.

Here is the code:..............

Now if I switch to "fill parent" as follows it actually works but it creates another problem. Here is the code (so far so good):

So looking at above we were forced to use "fill_parent" and we would think like we fixed the problem but here is the problem if we are using "fill_parent" (I took out the textview just to show the problem, textview doesnt make the problem go away anyways):

As you can see I assign the weights 3 (top red) and 2 (bottom green) but what actually happens is they get flipped: The red becomes 2 and bottom becomes 3. Just measure the pixels too see.

Here are the results of the 3 codes:

Android :: Adding Checkboxes To LinearLayout

Sep 9, 2010

I want to add some checkboxes to a LinearLayout at runtime. The orientation is vertical and I want the checkboxes to appear at the bottom. I create each checkbox like this: CheckBox box = new CheckBox(this);

Then I add the box to the current view like this: addContentView( box , params ); What should be the params to get the effect I want? So far, everything I've tried ends up overlaying the new checkboxes on top of each other and on top of the other items in the layout. I want everything stacked in a column with the new checkboxes at the bottom.

Android :: LinearLayout/TextView Sizing

Jun 8, 2010

I'm trying to accomplish something fairly simple but struggling to get the right combination of layoutWidth/weight to make this work.

I have a horizontally oriented LinearLayout with width fill_parent containing two TextViews. The TextView on the right has variable width text, and I want the TextView on the left to adjust its size accordingly to as much width as possible. Essentially, the right TextView must always show all of its contents and the left TextView should extend as far as possible to the edge of the TextView on the right.

Android :: Adding ArrayList Of LinearLayout Objects To UI

Jan 27, 2010

I am trying to use the following code to go through an ArrayList of LinearLayout objects, add each one to a TableLayout, and finally add that TableLayout to a ScrollView defined in the main.xml file.

ScrollView theScrollView = (ScrollView) findViewById (; TableLayout theList = new TableLayout(this); ArrayList<LinearLayout> theArray = Edit.getTheArray();

if (theArray.size() > 0) { for (int i = 0; i < theArray.size(); i++) { theList.addView(theArray.get(i)); } theScrollView.addView(theList); }

A second activity (Edit) is used to convert user input into a new LinearLayout and put it in the ArrayList. The code works successfully on the first item in the Array, however, after adding a second LinearLayout to the ArrayList and returning to the main activity, I get a force close and the following error: java.lang.IllegalStateException: The specified child already has a parent. You must call removeView() on the child's parent first.

I can't seem to figure out what is happening here. Is there another method I should be using to get my desired results?

Android :: ListView AddHeaderView Gives ClassCastException When Adding LinearLayout

Jun 18, 2009

I've been trying to add a linear layout to a listview header. The listview appears fine and is working as expected, but when i try to add a linearlayout to the header i get a java.lang.ClassCastException: android.view.ViewGroup$LayoutParams occuring at the list.addHeaderView (ll); line. I thought it might be something in the complex layout i had so i switched it to just a linearlayout with a colored background and still got the same error. The end result i an trying to get is a list with a header that is all scrollable.

Android :: Prevent TextView From Stretching Out It's Parent LinearLayout?

Jul 24, 2010

It seems that a TextView inside a LinearLayout forces that LinearLayout to be larger. I am trying split my screen top 50% and bottom 50% and also the bottom 50% is split into 3 parts. So I did my weights 3 (for the top), and then 1, 1, 1 (for the bottom) for a total of 6.

Here is what it looks like.

As soon as I take out the TextView inside the first LinearLayout the splits are proper. The moment I put the TextView inside the top LinearLayout the top LinerLayout gets larger by the amount of the the TextView.

Here is my code:

Android :: Linearlayout Does Not Allow Vertical Scroll After Adding Dynamic Edittexts

Jun 11, 2009

<LinearLayout android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:id="@+id/Layoutbuttons"> <Button android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:id="@+id/Bsave" android:text="Save"></Button> <Button android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Clear" android:id="@ +id/Beditclear"></Button> </LinearLayout>

<LinearLayout android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:id="@+id/Ledititems" android:orientation="vertical" android:scrollbars="vertical" android:scrollbarStyle="insideInset" android:scrollbarAlwaysDrawVerticalTrack="true" android:fadingEdge="vertical" android:fadingEdgeLength="8px"></ LinearLayout>

I am adding dynamicly created EditTexts to the last vertical LinearLayout:

ArrayList<EditText> arrayedititems; edititems = (LinearLayout) findViewById(;
arrayedititems.add( new EditText(globalcontext) ); //multiple times to add many EditTexts .... edititems.addView(arrayedititems.get(lastindex) );

Now all the edittexts are being added fine and show up on the linearlayout, the problem is I get no vertical scrollbar and can not scroll the linearlayout (you can a see large number of failed attemptes in the xml entry to enable this scrolling, such as forcing scrollbars or setting to vertical) Do I need to call some sort of invalidate() or notifyDataSetChanged() like with an arrayadapter to update the LinearLayout into checking if it needs to enable scrolling?

Android :: Why Setting TextView.Ellipsize As Marquee Cause Its Sibling View In Linearlayout Redraw

After digging deeper, we found all controls in our layout kept drawing when texts scrolling. We wonder why? And how to avoid all controls redrawing?

Android :: Dynamically Adding Content To RelativeLayout

Nov 24, 2010

Since I'm still just learning Android (and it appears Amazon says it'll be 2 months till I get the Hello, Android book) I'm still playing around with doing simple things. I have no problem getting an icon to display with the click of a button on my RelativeLayout using ImageView. The code for creating it is as follows:

private int mIconIdCounter = 1;
private ImageView addIcon(){
ImageView item = new ImageView(this);
item.setImageResource( R.drawable.tiles );
RelativeLayout.LayoutParams params = new RelativeLayout.LayoutParams( LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT );
if( mIconIdCounter != 1 ){
params.addRule(RelativeLayout.RIGHT_OF, 1 );
item.setLayoutParams( params );
item.setId( mIconIdCounter );

Android : Changing Text Value Of A Textview Dynamically

Nov 9, 2010

I have a textview in my XML layout file, but when I try to change its text value with code pragmatically (dynamically, depending on which button the user clicks) then the text of the textview doesn't change.

This is the code that I tried:

TextView userText = (TextView) findViewById(;


In debug mode, I can see that usertext has the changed text, but the change doesn't appear on my mobile window... I don't know why.

EDIT: SOLVED! it was a problem with my relative layout, text is out of the window!

Android :: Dynamically Adding A View To Activity Layout

Aug 18, 2010

I have a custom view (an extension of a TextView) that I want to dynamically add to my Layout (don't want to include it in the main.xml file).

The book says to fetch the RelativeLayout using findViewById() in my java code then create a new instance of my custom view, then use addView on the RelativeLayout to add the new view.

I'm not getting any errors, but when I click my button to add the new view, nothing is happening (view isn't being added). Do I need to set additional properties on my custom view (layout width, layout height for example) in order for it to be shown?

Android :: Setup Background Of A TextView Dynamically From Xml File?

Oct 10, 2010

I have an XMl file like below which I will use to set background for Textview:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android=""


The above Xml I will set as background for TextView in main.xml as below:



But I want this to do from code rather than Xml.I have done everything that I have done in Xml like font,width,Height,font dynamically through code , but not able to set Background that I mentioned in Xml file . How can we set content of Xml file as background to textview similar to how we set background as XML in main.xml.

In the code I have done like this:
t1=new TextView(this);
But I didn't find how to set background i.e. how to set XML content as background?
