Android :: How Can I Make Browser Render My Document At Screen's Size?

Aug 8, 2010

I'm working on a site that's supposed to scale fluently down to low resolutions, so that it would work just as well on a phone. This works well in Firefox and Chrome when I just make the window small, but when I try it out on an actual Android phone (Nexus One running Android 2.2), it renders it super-huge! (Using JS's window.innerWidth and window.innerHeight properties, it seems the viewport resolution it reports is 800x1271!.Is there a way to render the page at actual-size in the browser window so I can have my full design show up on the phone? User-agent sniffing is allowed, JS is allowed but discouraged.

Android :: Home Screen Widget Size In Normal Screen And Largest Screen

Mar 31, 2010

I am designing a home screen widget. I ran this widget on a HTC Hero device, which has a screen of 320 pixels * 480 pixels with mdpi. It ran perfect on HTC Hero. The widget takes 3 cells * 2 cells space, i.e. 240 pixels * 200 pixels.Then I ran this widget on a Nexus One device, which has a screen of 480 pixels * 800 pixels, mdpi. Since Nexus One also is mdpi, so I though 240dip is equivalent to 240 pixels on Nexus One and 200dip is equivalent to 200 pixels on Nexus One, so the widget will not take 3 cells * 2 cells space on Nexus One device. To my surprise, when running on Nexus One device, the widget take exact 3 cells * 2 cells, about 360 pixels * 300 pixels, on Nexus One device.I am confused. The layout xml above specifies 240dip in width and 200dip in height for the widget, but why did it take 360 pixels * 300 pixels on Nexus One Device? What am I missing?

Android :: How Browser Decides Html Size On 2.1?

May 20, 2010

We have one html page whose backgroud is an image(1024px*600px) with no-repeat. We displayed it in Browser rightly on 1.6 HVGA(160) and WVGA(240) emulator and scrollbar displaed on both sides. But we got different result when testing on 2.1 HVGA(160) and WVGA(240) emulator. On 2.1 HVGA(160), the background image is scaled smaller and we saw large wide margin on the right. On 2.1WVGA (240), There are two margins on right and bottom sides. There is no scrollbar displayed on 2.1. And we put few small element in our html page.

Android :: Home Screen Widget Size For Large Screen Or Hdpi?

Mar 30, 2010

From Android widget screen guidelines,we know that, home screen has 4*4 cells, and in portrait orientation, each cell is 80 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. I think these are for baseline HVGA screen. How about for large screens and hdpi screens, do they still have 4*4 cells for widget and each cell in portrait orientation is still 80 pixels * 100 pixels?

HTC Droid Eris :: Browser / Defaults To Tiny Size After 2.1

May 18, 2010

Ever since the 2.1 OTA upgrade,when I open my web browser it defaults to an extremely tiny size.I'd describe it as fit-to-screen where the entire web page will be fit to the size of the phone screen, thus making the words unreadable.I have to use my fingers to expand it before I can read it.But before the upgrade, it would open by default to a size that was at least readable.How can I change the default size of the web page?

Android Screen Size

Jan 17, 2014

I got to know that the devices with screen resolution 1280x720 or 720x1280 are extra large screen devices.

But when I run my application on Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999 (resolution 720x1280) throught eclipse, the following code prints "Normal screen" i.e. it is a normal screen device but according to my knowledge it should print "Extra Large screen". If its a normal screen size device actually then why its picking the layout (XML) file from res/layout-xlarge-port folder instead of res/layout? Need to understand this screen size concept so that I can make my application for multiple screen sizes.

// get and check the screen size of the device
int screenSize = getResources().getConfiguration().screenLayout &
Configuration.SCREENLAYOUT_SIZE_MASK;
switch(screenSize) {
case Configuration.SCREENLAYOUT_SIZE_XLARGE:
Toast.makeText(this, "Extra Large screen",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
break;
[code]...

Android :: Multiple Screen Size

Nov 10, 2009

I have an app that I would like to keep 1.5 compatibility but support the additional display resolutions of more recent devices like the Droid. I've read the suggestions in the dev guide, specially the legacy applications section, since that's exactly what I want to do.I'm not running in compatbility mode, so anyDensity is set to true and all screen sizes are allowed in the manifest. I've recreated all my graphical elements so they don't get upscaled on a 480px-width screen (called "hires-bitmaps" in the following).If I put the hires-bitmaps into drawable-hdpi and leave the others in drawable, the emulator2.0 (WVGA854, density @ 240) displays them perfectly. On the other hand, the emulator1.5 (320x480, density @ 160) - and my HTC Hero - ALSO use the hires graphics in drawable-hdpi. That's a problem because the hires graphics scale slightly differently and I don't want the app to resize too much.As mentioned in the dev guide I can prevent this by adding the API version number to the resource folder. Not very convenient since I'd have to keep the hires bitmaps twice (drawable-hdpi-v4 and drawable-hdpi-v5), but I nevertheless tried it. Result: emulator2.0 uses low-res graphics from "drawable" (which is bad), emulator1.5 as well (which is good). And what's weird: emulator1.6 (WVGA854, density @ 240), uses hires-graphics. Now that seems odd.

Android :: Get The Screen Size In Inches

Aug 4, 2010

I am trying to determine the physical size of a screen in inches.

Normally, I could do something like this:

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

Then use metrics.widthPixels and metrics.heightPixels. Now that I know the width and height in pixels, I should be able to calculate size in inches if I know the density. Easy enough, metrics.xdpi and metrics.ydpi.

Then screen dimension in inches should be:

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

Seems simple enough except that it doesn't work.

On a Motorola Droid, the system reports back: xdpi and ydpi as 96 (which cannot be true).

And the screen resolution as: 480 x 854. Which results in a width of 5" x 8.9" -- which as I'm holding this in my hand right now, I must say - cannot be correct. how to accurately calculate this?

Android :: Not Taking Up Full Screen Size

Jul 27, 2010

Tried to search for this one but the search terms I used didn't seem to find worthwhile results. I'm creating an application to run on a device with a 800x480 resolution (the archos 5) so I've created an AVD in the emulator with that resolution. However, when I run my program in the emulator it simply shows the program with the default android size, centered in the 800x480 window. It is not stretched to cover the whole screen. How can I fix this? I'm using Android 2.1.

Android :: Device With Screen Size 2.2 To 2.4 And Resolution 320X240

I see that the minimum screen diagonal size for Android is listed as 2.6". I am looking at custom building a device with screen size 2.2" to 2.4" and resolution 320X240. Want to know if Android works on smaller screens. Do I need to write any display drivers to support the smaller screens? Does physical size really matter?
