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?View 2 Replies View Related
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.View 3 Replies View Related
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.
I have a background service and want to listen to clicks on the screen by the user. Is there any standard procedure or experience in doing this?View 2 Replies View Related
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?View 2 Replies View Related

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 &
Toast.makeText(this, "Extra Large screen",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
I'm considering getting a Wildfire over the Desire/Legend to save some cash. but i've heard that the wildfire doesn't get some apps due to it's lower screen resolution Would just like to know if there are a large number of apps that can't be used on the wildfire because of this? because if that's the case i'd rather spend the money and get a desireView 3 Replies View Related

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.View 5 Replies View Related

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?

I need to know how many pixels wide and tall the screen is. I know that there are a bunch of different localization folders that I could make for different views but I just need to know, programmatically, how many pixels are on the screen so I can do some drawing.

I am trying to change the screen size of the emulator and see on the site that they tell you what commands to use, but it doesnt' tell you HOW to do it. how I would change the screen size. I believe this occurs on startup. I have eclipse as well, but would rather just shell into it and change it whenever I want.View 2 Replies View Related

Ok so has anybody heard or experienced their droids screen to be a different size than others? I have two motorola droids and after purchasing some snap on hard cases all of them do not fit mine but they fit the wifes just fine. After very close side by side inspection the only thing that I could see was the bezel around my screen has a steeper angle than hers causing the front part not to clip. Question is if I take mine into a verizon store and show them either by the cases already purchased or ones in the store that they don't fit do you think they would warranty replace it?View 3 Replies View Related

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.View 3 Replies View Related

I am a nexus s ics user. My screen is almost death. Part of my touchscreen doesnt work. Like, 20% of it. But the other part of my screen works.
And there is no place to replace my screen. My device is unsupported in my country. So i got an idea. If i can change the screen size (not the resolution or density) of my phone i can just ignore the unworking part and i can push the software buttons instead of touchscreen hardware buttons cuz they are not working anymore.
My nexus s default resolution is 480 x 800. if i can change it to 480 x 600 or something.

I am so sick of the little crop window you stretch to only see a portion of your photo and it's being reviewed at full screen size. I saw someone post that you grab the upper left and bottom right corners to stretch the window, but it did not work for me.View 36 Replies View Related
One thing that really annoys me is if you get a good picture as a wallpaper...when you go to other screens its "off"
Is there anyway you can have the same wallpaper on each screen...so no matter how many homescreens you have...its the same identical wallpaper on everyone is exactly the same place?
I see that the minimum screen diagonal size for Android is listed as 2.6". I am looking at custom building a device with screen size 2.2" to 2.4" and resolution 320X240. Want to know if Android works on smaller screens. Do I need to write any display drivers to support the smaller screens? Does physical size really matter?View 1 Replies View Related
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.

I have a 7 inch tablet (Novo 7 Paladin) running ICS. Unfortunately, most apps just use the phone layout wich I assume is because the manufacturer set the android:screenSize property to "large" instead of "xlarge".
Is there a way to change this, so that Apps will use the "xlarge" screen layout?
Would it be possible to edit android source code lets say for the Galaxy S to only use a certain portion of the lcd screen. Say much like changing the resolution but creating it so only say 1 inch down would be usable. The rest inoperative.View 4 Replies View Related
