Android :: Displaying XML-based Layout / Adding Text Dynamically

Sep 12, 2009

I have a LinearLayout defined in XML that I want to use repeatedly to display elements of a list. The XML-layout looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="@drawable/background"
android:paddingBottom="5px">

<TextView
android:id="@+id/destination"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textSize="22dp"
android:text="@string/test_destination"
android:paddingLeft="5px"/>

<TextView
android:id="@+id/date"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textSize="15dp"
android:text="@string/test_date"
android:paddingLeft="5px"/>

<TableLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/info"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:paddingLeft="5px"
android:paddingTop="10px" >

I gather information about certain events from a webpage, and then I want to display all events in a list using the above layout for each event. My current approach is to have a LinearLayout as parent and then adding each event as a row.

Problem number one is to add the layout to each event (the number of events is varying). I.e., I want to dynamically inflate this layout for each event. I also don't want the text to be hard coded into the layout (as above) but added at runtime. I don't know how to do this. I have tried something like the following without any success.

LinearLayout eventView = (LinearLayout) findViewById(R.layout.event);
parentView.addView(eventView);


Problem number two is then to add these layouts to the parent view group and display it on the screen. When I try to do this using parent.addView(child), the program crashes at runtime and I can't figure out why.

It's kind of hard to describe the specific problem, since I'm new to GUI-programming on Android and I'm sort of programming by trial and error right now. Anyway, if you are able to help me with some of the problems it would be greatly appreciated. Linus

EDIT:
The problem now is adding text dynamically to the TextViews. I try this:

TextView dest = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.destination);dest.setText("myText");

only to discover that dest is null. Any ideas why and how to fix this?

EDIT 2:
I have narrowed the problem even more, but I really don't understand its nature. This is the trouble-method: Code...
it somehow works (even though the events are displayed in reverse order). Anyone knows what's going on here?

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 :: Dynamically Adding Content To RelativeLayout

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 );
item.setAdjustViewBounds(true);
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 );
++m_IconIdCounter;.......................

Android :: Layout - Displaying Multiple Colums

Nov 17, 2010

I want to display text such that it would be like:

TITLE 1.1

text about title 1.1

TITLE 1.2

text about title 1.2

TITLE 2.1

text about title 2.1

And so on

It would be a scrolling windows, but another problem is text could be lengthy and could span multiple lines. What do you recommend i should breakup my layout with. The length will be more then the screen height so i need scrollbars. Plus need to keep title bold.

Basically i would be printing this text from a String Array. Is it possible to display it directly from arrays or i can also work with simple strings but need to know how should i breakup my layout. like scrollview -> table layout or what?

Android :: Which Layout To Use For 2x2 Image - Based Menu?

Nov 3, 2010

I am trying to create a screen (in portrait mode) that shows 4 images (same size, intended to scale down to fit screen), taking up the entire screen, breaking up the screen into quadrants (a tall, 2x2 grid). This will act as a main menu type of activity and each image should be clickable, in order to take the user to a different activity.

I have tried using a GridView inside a LinerLayout (using a lot from Google's GridView tutorial) but cannot get the images to all scale properly to fill the entire screen. I get extra margins around the images and/or scrolling of the entire screen. I have also tried using a TableLayout, placing 2 images in each of the 2 rows. Visually, that worked perfectly. Unfortunately when using that, I cannot seem to reference the ImageView items in the TableLayout in my activity code (findViewById always returns null)..................

Android :: Why Does This XML-Layout Based Application Crash

Sep 14, 2010

I am very new to Android Development. I am trying a sample application and it is generating a button dynamically using Java and it is working fine.

This works fine in my emulator. However when i try do with an XML based layout, my app crashes in the emulator.
Main.XML contents
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Button xmlns:android="com.testing"
android:id="@+id/button"
android:text=""
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent" />
Code:
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

setContentView(R.layout.main);

btn=(Button)findViewById(R.id.button);
btn.setOnClickListener(this);
updateTime();}

Does anyone know why this simple application is crashing because of the XML layout?

Android :: Setting Layout Attributes Based On OS Version?

Sep 14, 2010

Is there a way to specify a background in a layout based on OS version?:

android:background_1.5="@color/white"android:background_above_1.5="@drawable/mybackground"

I'm running into a problem where using a 9 png drawable for the background causes a stack overflow exception on a listview item (stack trace shows its related to a child TextView -> drawText()). The layout is simple:

<LinearLayout><ImageView /><TextView /></LinearLayout>

and the background works fine on 1.6 and above. It's just 1.5 that's having the issue. If I set the background to be a color, it works fine.

Android :: Creating A Custom Image Based Layout?

Sep 26, 2010

Is it possible to create a layout based on (background) images? For example, there is well know app called Appie that uses this picture as a homescreen:

I might be able to recreate the layout with a TableLayout, but this will be difficult to get it perfectly aligned with the buttons in the image. The default layout options make it very difficult, or maybe impossible, to allow for selection of the buttons on the image (especially when the buttons are in an arc-path). Can anyone tell me how this is done?
