I have an activity. It does not have a title bar. The content view is just a linear layout. It looks like android draws a drop shadow at the top of my content view, directly below the status bar. Is there a way to stop that from being drawn?
I want to set a specific background image for all my buttons. So, I changed my PNG file into a Ninepatch drawable using the "draw9patch" tool(by specifying the line of strecth).Then, I applied this as background to my button using "myBtn.setBackgroundResource(R.drawable.new_png);" Now, the background appears for the button, but the lines of stretch are also visible on the android screen, wherever I'd specified them in the tool. Can you help? Is there something wrong in how I'm using the tool?
Creating a Drawable that is completely empty seems like a common need, as a place holder, initial state, etc., but there doesn't seem to be a good way to do this... at least in XML. Several places refer to the system resource @android:drawable/empty but as far as I can tell (i.e., it's not in the reference docs, and aapt chokes saying that it can't find the resource) this doesn't exist. Is there a general way of referencing an empty Drawable, or do you end up creating a fake empty PNG for each project?
I am running my application in the emulator using a high density skin (like WVGA800). However the ressources in my application are loaded from the drawable- mdpi folder instead of drawable-hdpi ... what else should I do so that android use the correct folder ?
I've tried casting shadow following this tutorial (which uses Stencil Buffer method): http://nehe.gamedev.net/data/lessons/lesson.asp?lesson=27 The result is a cool shadow effect. But it depends too much on geometry and thus not very flexible. Then I found a much easier way to do shadowing here: http://www.paulsprojects.net/tutorials/smt/smt.html But it uses ARB_depth_texture and ARB_shadow extension. So I bet it can't be used with Android's OpenGL ES 1.0. I've tried googling for "Shadow Mapping" and "OpenGL ES" but still can't find a good tutorial. Can anyone recommend me a good place/site I can study for this please?
The ListView has a nice fade on the top/bottom.I have a ListView in the top half of my app, and then a ViewFlipper on the bottom. Is it possible to add a fade/shadow to the top of the ViewFlipper? This would look nice.
I'm trying to give my first steps on working with ActivityGroups. To be more specific, I have a parent activity with a layout containing several buttons, and another layout below them in order to add other activities' layouts by means of the "addView()" method. Well, everything works fine in functionality terms; but I'm experiencing a weird behavior inside the layout where other activities are kind of loaded into. A black line along the top border of the layout plus a slight shadow do appear when I run the application on the emulator. I have tried to play changing the paddings, margins, etc. with no success.
If I draw a round rect shape by code I can use setShadowLayer to get a shadow drawn for the shape. Is there an equivalent when defining shapes in XML?The following example draws a round rect background to a shape. What would I need to add to get a shadow added to the shape? Is it even possible using XML? Code...
I'm scaling markers on a MapView with the following code
Which works, but the shadow below the marker has wrong offset when scaled. Also; i override the public boolean onTap(int index) in ItemizedOverlay to detect taps on the markers, but it seems inaccurate. I can click some range outside the marker and still trigger onTap...

I have a MultiAutoCompleteTextView in my layout, I have attached an array adapter of email address to the MultiAutoCompleteTextView . Now when a user types any letters in this view it will show a drop down with the matching email address to the letter typed.
I wanted to modify the the drop down in such a way it also display's the Full name and email address one below the other . I tried using the ResourceCursorAdapter but could not get it to work.
I just rooted my moto droid. Now I am wondering if it is possible to drop 1.5 or other versions of the OS on the phone and if so how? If anyone could explain how I do this or link some forums that explain this. Or is there maybe a dual boot option b/c I don't want to always us 1.5 only for testing purposes.
