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 :: 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 :: Adding Intent To Activity Dynamically?

Android :: Adding View To Bottom Of Layout Inside Scroll View

Mar 10, 2010

So my layout looks basically like this:
<ScrollView>
<RelativeLayout>
<BunchOfViews/>
<ImageView android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"/>
</RelativeLayout>
</ScrollView>
I have the ScrollView so all of the layout always is visible no matter the height of the screen. The problem is that on a very high screen, I still want my imageview to be at the bottom. However, a child of a ScrollView dont seem to have a defined bottom. The View is placed at the top of the layout. How can I solve this problem in a neat way?

Android :: Adding View Extending From SurfaceView To Layout Gives Blank Screen

Jun 5, 2010

I'm very new to Android programming, so this is probably something pretty basic. I just have an xml layout with a few buttons. I'm trying to follow the model given by the JetBoy demo, so I'm adding a view to the layout which extends SurfaceView. When this new view is put in my xml layout, I just get a blank screen.

Here's the XML layout if it helps. The gameview element is what causes the screen to be blank

Android :: Way To Add A View To Overlap Other Views In Layout / Activity?

Apr 19, 2009

Is it possible to add a view dynamically that overlaps other views in the layout. I have Linear Layout defined for the activity. As part of the Layout I have a custom View. The content changes dynamically and sizes appropriately based on the content size, with fill_parent for width and wrap_content for height. But what I want is, dynamically take over the full screen and then based on a click go back to the normal mode. Is there a mode to display a view where - in it can overlap all other views in the layout?

Android :: Which View / Layout Does Market Application (1.6) Details Activity Use?

Feb 26, 2010

I want to do something very similar (in terms of appearance) to the app details activity of the Market app. It looks like a cross between linear layout (not all rows the same), list (scrolling nature), preferences (headings). My guess is its a linear layout in a scroll view (ignoring activity header/footer) and the headings are just hard coded.

Android :: Dynamically Adding Content To RelativeLayout

Nov 24, 2010

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 :: Custom View Extending View-Class / Still Based On XML-Layout

Aug 17, 2010

I want to build my own custom view which should look like the Crysis-GUI.At first I designed a XML-based Layout and made it visible via the setContentView(int resid)-Method. Worked pretty well.But now I wan't to go a step further and draw in my Layout. So I created a new Class, let it extend View and overrode the onDraw()-Method. So far so good.But how can I still use my XML-Layout? I can't do setContentView anymore, so how could the same effect be achieved?
