Android :: Getting Width And Height Of Device Programatically For QVGA Devices?
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 .

Android :: Control Frame Height And Width Of Captured Video : SetVideoSize() Does Not Work
On a Nexus One (for example), the camera application is able to capture H.264 video at 720x480 (the "High" quality setting). However, when using the MediaRecorder API, it always seems to capture at a fixed frame size of 320x240.
I would expect the setVideoSize() method to control the frame size (as in the prepare fragment below), but it appears to have no effect (using Froyo 2.2 Android SDK).code...
Discussions on the android developers list seem to indicate this is a long standing issue. Can anyone advise how the frame size can be controlled, or if it is possible at all with the current API?
HTC Desire :: Android 2.2 - Width Device- No Longer Working
In previous versions of Android that supported: <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" /> the device displayed the content correctly resized in Webkit - in fact, all devices that recognize meta viewport work fine for me. Android 2.2, of course, has broken this - all items show up full size regardless of what is set in the meta tags. Anyone have a workaround, or is this fubared for now?
Android :: Height Of Device In Portrait Mode?
Is there always a concept of portrait mode for devices? If so, can we get what the height of the device is in portrait mode? I'm using this: DisplayMetrics dm = new DisplayMetrics(); getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(dm); but width and height get swapped depending on orientation of the G1.
Samsung Moment : Shows Up As M900 - Other Devices In Device Manager
I was trying to get calkulins DE03 on my moment tonight, and since I've put dd03/dd10 on, I thought it would be easy but I obviously messed up something. i have the new 2.1 rom flasher, i have joeykrims 2.1.3, those dont seem to be the issue. the issue is now when I place the phone in download mode, I no longer get a data connection. I just get something called m900 under the Other Device category in Device Manager. i have no idea what driver I need to make this happen, and I certainly dont remember this from flashing it the previous two time. I tried to install the drivers from the Technica YT video, but that didnt seem to solve anything. when the phone is in Normal Mode, I can mount and do all sorts of things via USB, so clearly, this is a Download Mode driver issue.
Android :: QVGA Screen Resolution Applications
I have general question about Cupcake (or any other later relase): do you, when writing apps, consider running them on qvga device? although Dianne wrote here http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/msg/73ded3ba1fe7139e that qvga is not supported i still see in Cupcake sdk qvga skins...
My question is: should i really forget about qvga or not?
Android :: How To Get Button's Height To Match Another Element's Height
I want to put a button next to a EditText and I want their heights to match.For example, from the built in Android browser:
The Go button is the same height as the EditText field.I know I could wrap both these views in a parent layout view, and set both of their heights to fill_parent, and that would make them match.However, I would like to do this without having to give the layout a static size.I would rather have the EditText take whatever height it needs based on the font size and then have the button next to it match whatever height that might be.Is this possible with an xml layout?
Android : RelativeLayout Height Not Following GridView Height
I am having problem with a GridView within a RelativeLayout, which is again within a ScrollView. The problem is that the height of the RelativeLayout is not following the height of the contents of the GridView. When there are more than one rows, the GridView is clipped and a scrollbar appears, which is undesirable. I have tried to illustrate my problem using an screenshot from the Android hierarchy viewer. You can see how the red RelativeLayout box has clipped the second row of the GridView. I am pasting the XML layout of the page (page.xml) and the individual grid item (griditem.xml). I have used the following code to inflate the grid items in the gridAdapter code:
What I should do to have the height of the RelativeLayout follow the full length of the gridView?

Android :: Why Looking For QVGA Resources In The Wrong Order Mdpi - Hdpi - Ldpi
Im trying to do some testing with a QVGA emulator and I find that it looks for an image resource in the mentioned order.
drawable-ldpi 3rd (it does get found only after i change the name of the image in the other two dirs for testing)
I would expect it to be ldpi first.
When running other emulators (HVGA and WVGA) they use their appropriate drawable dirs... its only QVGA. The only code that I see could affect this is here (based on the docs)
I have tested this with a 2.0 emulator and a 1.6, i get the same result.
