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 :: SetCPU / Slow To Recognize Screen On

Nov 21, 2010

I love SetCPU but I've noticed it's slow to recognize when the screen is on. My default setting is 1100/800 (on demand) and my screen off setting is 250/250 (on demand). Whenever I turn my screen on and it's been off for a little bit it's always at 250, even a minute later.What's more surprising is I'll go into the profiles, turn off the "screen off" profile, and it'll jump up to 1100. However, when I enable the profile, it goes back to 250, all while the screen is on.Any idea if this is something I can fix? I've tried making the "screen off" profile to 550/250 to shorten the gap but it didn't do anything.

General :: PC Won't Recognize Droid After Broken Screen

Feb 28, 2014

I broke the screen on my droid mini. I bought a replacement digitizer/screen combo off ebay that doesn't seem to be working even though installation is correct. I can power on the phone, but it's really weird. There's no display and it just vibrates once. About every minute it vibrates 1 time again.

Secondly, my PC won't recognize the phone now. I was going to try to transfer my photos to the PC so I could call insurance as a last resort. I have around 800 photos on there that I want to get off. NOTE, MY SCREEN DOESN'T WORK so I can't change modes on the phone.

I'm temporarily using an old phone, at least need getting the photos off the phone.

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?

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 &
switch(screenSize) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Extra Large screen",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

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:


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:


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 :: Design ImageViews That Stretch According To Screen-size?

Nov 8, 2010

I have a requirement where few of my image views form border areas of an application, the application will be running on many screen sizes.
I'll be creating a uniform image for the smallest size possible, which can be repeated as many times as needed, and still presents the same image.
i want the image view to replicate the image contained whenever it is increased.

Perhaps I was able to describe my problem.
Is anything like this possible?

I tried 9-patch images, but I couldn't find nice articles on it which could explain how to create useful images with it which could suite my need.
