Android :: Shape With Open Border

Oct 19, 2009

I would like to have a shape that has border only on 3 sides: top, left and right, i.e. I want bottom to be open. How can I achieve that defining shape in XML? Currently I have a normal 4 side border using the following shape XML definition:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <shape xmlns:android="" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" >
<solid android:color="#FFE8F0F8" />
<stroke android:width="1dp" android:color="#808480" />
<padding android:left="1dp" android:top="1dp" android:right="1dp" android:bottom="1dp" /> </shape>

Android :: Change Border Color (shape) On Select In Droid?

Aug 17, 2010

I've a border set around a drawable using LinearLayout (bg: rounded rectangle).

The drawable and the border is used as a tab view. I'd like to change the border color of the tab when it is selected.

How can I do this?

Color state list doesn't seem to work as the view being selected is not the shape (i.e border) but the tab. Drawable state list doesn't seem to work either as I'm trying to swivel between views, not drawables. Moreover, I can't find any "onSelectedListener" of the sort...

Android :: Draw Text With Border On MapView?

Nov 12, 2009

I'm trying to draw some text onto an MapView on Android. The drawing of the text goes fine, but it's very hard to read the text because it's white with no black border (like the rest of the text that appears naturally on MapViews to denote cities, states, and countries). I can't seem to figure how to draw the text with a black border. This is the sort of code I'm using right now (this is just example code, found in one of my overlays):

public void draw(Canvas canvas, MapView mapView, boolean shadow) {
Paint textPaint = new Paint();
textPaint.setARGB(255, 255, 255, 255);
canvas.drawText("Some Text", 100, 100, textPaint);
super.draw(canvas, mapView, shadow);}

Android :: WebView Border-radius Aliasing

Jul 26, 2010

When using border-radius on my android emulator I am seeing ugliness like this:

Is there anyway to get Android to display rounded corners via -webkit-border-radius in a more pleasing way? Most modern desktop browsers and Mobile Safari seem to antialias their corners, but not Android's renderer.

I'm really hoping I don't have to do this with images, and there is some awesome trick to get pretty corners with only a border radius css declaration.

Android : Can I Crop An Image To Get A Nice Border

Aug 16, 2010

I have an imageview which has a photo taken with the camera as its background and a frame as it's foreground (src). In that way the photo is positioned behind the frame so the photo get's a nice border.

The imageview is a square (265x265dip). Now the problem is that photos taken are rectangular and thuse they are squeezed into the imageview making them look akward.

So how can I crop the bitmap of the photo so it is fitted as a square so I can then put it as a background for the imageview?
