How do i create a drop shadow to add it to a custom drawable i made using shape?
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?
My layout is just:
I have no titlebar:
I have a PNG file with drop shadow that is supposed to be blended using multiply operation. I'm using an ImageView to show it.
However, the shadow is shown as solid gray.
What am I doing wrong?

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
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?View 4 Replies View Related

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?View 3 Replies View Related

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.
Has any of you experienced such weird behavior?

I'm scaling markers on a MapView with the following code

I'm just not getting it. How do add files/folders to the android Dropbox? I've copied files and folders into the /sdcard/dropbox folder but they don't show up in the Dropbox app nor are they synched to my PC Dropbox. I don't see a way to paste into the app. In the Dropbox app I see "Upload" then "Add any file" but the only options are to add a photo, music or voice recorder file. I was hoping to use it to back up some ebooks and data files to my desktop.View 8 Replies View Related
I am the proud owner of a Hero, and like it! The only issue I have is that I use a website to book golf on-line. There's an icon which gives a list of all the courses. On a standard PC there's a bar on the right side of the list which you slide up or down to acess about 50 courses. On the Hero I can open the list, but it only shows the first 6 courses, and not the bar. For the life of me I have tried everything and I can't find a way to access the "hidden"courses. Does this problem ring a bell with anyone?View 7 Replies View Related

I rooted this week, and my first two roms were alyousis (probably wrong spelling) and Evil Eris, both of which had wired tether built into the OS, and it would appear as an option in the usb selection screen. I was having problems with EE, so I went to the the rooted stock version of 2.1, which is very stable and is running well. I'm having problems with the wired tether in my current rom (I can't remember the dev who makes the stock ROM, I think it's ECLIPS3), but this ROM also doesn't have the dropdown tether option. In EE, tether worked pefectly with my mac and once I installed the drivers it worked perfectly on my XP thinkpad. In the stock ROM, it's the complete opposite. My mac doesn't recognize the eris as a new NIC and nor does XP or 7. Is there a better, more compatible version of wired tether for my ROM, and is there a way to get the same drop-down options that was in EE? Also, is there a fix for the 50% bug present in the eris official ROM?View 2 Replies View Related
How much time it takes for your battery to drop 10% when you're on 4G doing no downloads, no streaming, no Youtubing, nothing? In my case just 30 min. Complete discharge in approx 4 hours The temperature is very hot too. Do not put it under the pillow.check it out, this is ultimately just a 30 min test, and post it here (say to voice dialer "Open battery Info" for battery numbers and temperature instead of bars)View 11 Replies View Related
