Android :: Getting Width And Height Of Device Programatically For QVGA Devices?
Aug 23, 2010
I want to get the width and height of my device to know what type device it is ie QVGA, HVGA ,WVGA.. Also i need to adjust some layouts according to width and height of the screen.
I tried following methods but its not working.
All these methods return wrong width and height for the 240x320 devices namely Samsung Europa and Alcatel which i have. Width = 320 Height = 240.. This is wierd as some of the critical functionality is getting hampered .. I think this is really a basic thing which shd be correctly provided. Please help me with this issue .

I am writing an android application that has 3 views one below the other. Each view has to be of equal height, depending on the screen size. Each view occupies the full width of the screen. How do you specify in the layout xml that the view has to take up 1/3rd height of the device display height? What would be the appropriate layout to use in this case?
I want the second ImageView to have the very same size of the first ImageView so that it resizes the pictures I set in the second view (header_avatar) to the same of the first view (@drawable/icon). Is this possible or do I have to do it programmatically? Cannot I reference the first view's width and length on the second view?

Can you please tell me how can i set the width and height of an ImageView programmically in java code (not layout xml file)? I tried setMinimumWidth/setMinimumHeight, but that does not work. I have looked at the view in HierarchyView, it still said the width to be 80 and height to be 100. And that is not the value I set.
I am working on layout in android XML in which I would like to set a buttons height to match it's width when setup to fill parent. Obviously this number will change based on screen size, so I cannot use a set pixel size. Can someone help me with getting the button width based on screen size and then passing that to the height setting?
One of our views has a ScrollView as its root layout. When the device is rotated and onConfigurationChanged() is called, we'd like to be able to get the ScrollView's new width/height. Our code looks like this...

Every time that I want to do a Layout, I'm getting a black layout preview then I can drop stuff on it, that's ok, but how can I change the size of that blank surface (xml). The question came because I set a folder layout-large and then when I add a new layout.xml to that folder it came with the same size, as a layout-normal.
