Android :: Choose Button Layout To Include At Runtime

Dec 17, 2009

I have a complex dialog-layout that has to be customized for small screens to decrease its height on such devices. This can easily be achieved by decreasing the height of several single Buttons and Textfields in the layout, each by a small amount. Of course much of the layout still stays the same, so I figured I could use the <include/>-tag. This was the idea:

/res/layout/dialog_layout.xml ==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout"
/res/layout/include_button_layout.xml /res/layout-small/include_button_layout.xml

I figured that android would choose which button-layout to include at runtime. I couldn't get it to run, so I guess I was wrong. And if so, can anyone confirm whether this is the way to do it?

/res/layout/dialog_layout.xml ==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_default"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"
/res/layout/include_above_buttons.xml
/res/layout/include_below_buttons.xml
/res/layout/include_button_layout_default.xml
/res/layout/include_button_layout_small.xml
/res/layout-small/dialog_layout.xml
==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_small"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"

Android :: Include XML Argument In Some Other Layout

Aug 28, 2009

I have some layout xml that looks like this:
== file1.xml == <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout ...> ... ... </LinearLayout>

I want to include that in some other layout xml, so I do this --
== file2.xml == <include layout="@layout/file1.xml"/>

The question I have is how to pass arguments (and refer to them) from file2.xml to file1.xml. So, for example:
== file1.xml == <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout ...>
<TextView android:text="@text" android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"/> ... </LinearLayout>
== file2.xml == <include layout="@layout/file1.xml" text="abc"/>

Android :: Relative Layout And Include Tag

Jun 14, 2009

I'm reworking some of my layouts to use Relative layout. I have some building blocks which I'd like to reuse. The problem I seems to have with the include of the layout and position other layouts out of this include. Example:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height=wrap_content"

Mar 19, 2010

I'm building a jar so that other developers can use the view I create in their Android applications. I'm wondering if it is possible to use a layout resource in my jar so I can build the layout of my view or if I need to build up my view programmatically. Similarly, can I include image resources in my jar file?

Android :: XML Layout's Include Tag Really Work?

Apr 13, 2010

I am unable to override attributes when using <include> in my Android layout files. When I searched for bugs, I found Declined Issue 2863: "include tag is broken (overriding layout params never works)"

Since Romain indicates this works in the test suites and his examples, I must be doing something wrong.

My project is organized like this:

CODE:..............

The buttons.xml contains something like this:

And the portrait and landscape receipt.xml files look something like:

Android :: Programmatically Include Layout - I.e. Without XML

Jul 7, 2010

I've created an Activity subclass called CustomTitlebarActivity. Essentially, each main activity in my app will have a custom titlebar with many common features such as a Home button, a title, a search button, etc. In my current implementation, I am still explicitly using an include statement in the layout XML for each CustomTitlebarActivity: <include layout="@layout/titlebar" />

It seems natural that I should be able to do this within CustomTitlebarActivity. I have two questions: What code can replace this include tag, and where should I put the code? (My first instinct would be to put it in CustomTitlebarActivity's setContentView method.)

On a related note, I would appreciate insight into better ways to reuse android UI code (even if, per se, the titlebars need to vary slightly between activities.)

Android :: Change LinearLayout Layout At Runtime

Aug 25, 2010

I want the ability to re-arrange Views in a LinearLayout, without specifying specific pixel locations, at runtime. for my proof of concept, I have a layout with 2 TextViews, one red, and one black. The red TextView is on the left. I want onClick to set it to be on the right, without adjusting margins, as if I'd re-written the XML of the layout, with the red TextView second.

Android :: Changing Values Inside Layout Included With Include

Oct 28, 2010

I have in many of my screens that re mostly constructed of LinearLayouts a FrameLayout that should take up the bottom leftovers of the screen (using layout_height="0dp" layout_weight="1") inside it there's a FrameLayout with gradients background and in it's middle with some padding lies a button with some text, naturally i need the text and onClicked properties to me different from screen to screen. I considered using <include > tag for the above compound in my layouts, but as far as i can see i can't really change (at least not in xml) the button text and callback, is that really so?

Android :: Any Set Style Method At Runtime In Layout File?

Feb 1, 2009

I created my style in styles.xml, lets say MyStyle. I can use it in any layout file by style="@style/MyStyle". Also my generated R class have R.style.MyStyle, my question is if I can use it at runtime to "setStyle" - unfortunately View doesn't have such a method. If not what is R.style.MyStyle used for? (I already know that custom themes IDs are also in R.style and can be used to setTheme, but MyStyle is not a theme).

Android :: How To Use Simple Cursor Adapter To Include Button?

Jun 9, 2009

I have read the Gallery2.java example, which show how to map a Column's value to an element in the view I want to create (in this case, it maps 'NAME' to text1 element0. But what if I have a Button in my view, how can I know which Person is being clicked? or how can I query the person's info when a button in the new is clicked?

From the Gallery2.java example:
SpinnerAdapter adapter = new SimpleCursorAdapter(this,
// Use a template that displays a text view
android.R.layout.simple_gallery_item,
// Give the cursor to the list adatper c,
// Map the NAME column in the people database to...
new String[] {People.NAME},
// The "text1" view defined in the XML template
new int[] { android.R.id.text1 });
Gallery g = (Gallery) findViewById(R.id.gallery);

Android :: Possible To Load A Layout XML At Runtime And Load Into Activity?

Sep 4, 2010

Is it possible to load a layout XML at runtime and load into activity?

In my app, I have various types of data like Person, Company, City, etc; The requirement is to dynamically load the layout, find views by tags (property names like Person.name, Person.address) and then fill in data. For example, if user has selected an object of type Company, we want to load a company.xml layout, inflate it and then associate various properties (company name, company slogan, city, address, revenue) to tagged views. One possibility I see here is - each view in the layout will be associated with property-name as tag and then appropriate data will be loaded in appropriate views.

What should be the best design you would recommend?

Android :: How To Layout Button?

Aug 9, 2010

I would like to apply both an icon and text to a button. The button would have the icon centered in the button and text written at the bottom, centered. I could not get the text to center and be at the bottom using android:gravity.A side note, for a layout with 6 buttons is a Table Layout the best way to do it? There is 3 rows and 2 columns.Another side note, why does the button lose its rounded edges when I add background color?

Android :: Add Button To Linear Layout

Jan 5, 2010

I have a linear layout like this:

<LinearLayout android:id="@+id/header" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:orientation="horizontal" android:gravity="center_vertical" <ImageView android:id="@+id/icon" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_gravity="top" android:src="@drawable/img1" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/atitle" android:singleLine="true" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" /> </LinearLayout>

I need to add a button to the above layout problematically which is right justified? I need to do that in code instead of layout xml file (this is because i can't modify that layout xml file). Here is what I am doing: LinearLayout header = (LinearLayout) findViewById(R.id.header); Button buyButton = new Button(this); buyButton.setText(R.string.buy_ringtone); buyButton.setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams( ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT)); header.addView(buyButton);
But the button does not appear. Can you please tell me how can i achieve that?

Android :: Runtime Error Using Exported - Signed Apk But No Runtime Error Using Eclipse IDE

Mar 2, 2009

1) I am developing my app in Eclipse 3.4.1 with Android (ver 1.1_r1) plugin. My app compiles and executes without errors when using the Eclipse IDE.

However, when I export my app (unsigned) using Eclipse (via {select project} >right-click>Android tools>export unsigned application package), sign it, and try to run it on the Emulator, it throws a runtime error when I try to update my sqlite database, at which time the specific error created is: SQLite error#14, unable to open database. It is able to read from the database without problems. (I have also verified that the database is: open, is not readonly, is not locked by another thread, is not in the middle of a transaction.)

I have limited experience, but this seems more like a "system" problem given that the app works OK in Eclipse IDE but then fails as an exported/signed apk. Some googling of SQLite resources revealed a similar error on a non-Android platform which was fixed by: "Set your permissions correctly on /var/tmp, or whatever directory you are using to hold temporary files".

Does Android have temporary files, and if so how does it handle permissions on temporary files? Is there a way to check or set these permissions to see if this fixes my problem here?

2) Not sure if it is related, but after I have run the exported/signed app which causes the runtime error, if I reboot the Emulator, and try to run the program using the Eclipse IDE , the program fails with the same exact error. PLUS I also noticed the following error message while the program is installing/running: 03-01 22:22:29.282: ERROR/PackageManager(53): Package com.northwestradiology has mismatched uid: 0 on disk, 10019 in settings; read messages:

I can restore the Eclipse version of my program to be able to execute without runtime errors by utilizing the -wipe-data option for the emulator. But note that if I run my signed APK using an emulator created with the -wipe-data option, it still throws the runtime error listed above...
