Android :: Choose Button Layout To Include At Runtime

Dec 17, 2009

I have a complex dialog-layout that has to be customized for small screens to decrease its height on such devices. This can easily be achieved by decreasing the height of several single Buttons and Textfields in the layout, each by a small amount. Of course much of the layout still stays the same, so I figured I could use the <include/>-tag. This was the idea:

/res/layout/dialog_layout.xml ==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout"
/res/layout/include_button_layout.xml /res/layout-small/include_button_layout.xml

I figured that android would choose which button-layout to include at runtime. I couldn't get it to run, so I guess I was wrong. And if so, can anyone confirm whether this is the way to do it?

/res/layout/dialog_layout.xml ==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_default"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"
/res/layout/include_above_buttons.xml
/res/layout/include_below_buttons.xml
/res/layout/include_button_layout_default.xml
/res/layout/include_button_layout_small.xml
/res/layout-small/dialog_layout.xml
==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_small"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"

Android :: Set Maximum Width Of Linear Layout

Oct 18, 2010

<?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="fill_parent"
>
<EditText
android:id="@+string/urlText"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:hint="Enter Url Here"/>
<Button
android:id="@+string/go"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="Go"/>
<WebView
android:id="@+string/webView"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
</LinearLayout>

Android :: Change LinearLayout Layout At Runtime

Aug 25, 2010

I want the ability to re-arrange Views in a LinearLayout, without specifying specific pixel locations, at runtime. for my proof of concept, I have a layout with 2 TextViews, one red, and one black. The red TextView is on the left. I want onClick to set it to be on the right, without adjusting margins, as if I'd re-written the XML of the layout, with the red TextView second.

Android :: Any Set Style Method At Runtime In Layout File?

Feb 1, 2009

I created my style in styles.xml, lets say MyStyle. I can use it in any layout file by style="@style/MyStyle". Also my generated R class have R.style.MyStyle, my question is if I can use it at runtime to "setStyle" - unfortunately View doesn't have such a method. If not what is R.style.MyStyle used for? (I already know that custom themes IDs are also in R.style and can be used to setTheme, but MyStyle is not a theme).

Android :: Evenly Distribute Buttons Across Width Of Linear Layout

Aug 12, 2010

I have a linear layout (oriented horizontally) that contains 3 buttons. I want the 3 buttons to have a fixed width and be evenly distributed across the width of the linear layout.I can manage this by setting the gravity of the linear layout to center and then adjusting the padding of the buttons, but this works for a fixed width and won't work for changing devices or orientations.
<Linear Layout android:id="@+id/LinearLayout01"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:orientation="horizontal"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:gravity="center">
Button
android:id="@+id/btnOne"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:width="120dip"></Button><Button
android:id="@+id/btnTwo"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:width="120dip"></Button>Button
android:id="@+id/btnThree"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:width="120dip"></Button></Linear Layout>

Android :: How Can I Change Default Size (width + Height) Of XML Layout Preview?

Oct 5, 2010

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.

Android :: Change Nested Layout's Child View Group's Width In Java Code?

Oct 6, 2010

I have a layout xml file with a linear layout. One of the children is again a ViewGroup Relative layout. In my java code i want to change the width of this child Viewgroup for my requirements. I tried this

ViewGroup childViewGroup = (LinearLayout)findViewById(childViewGroup);
LayoutParams l = childViewGroup.getLayoutParams();
l.width = 360;
childViewGroup .setLayoutParams(l);

I couldn't do this because findViewById(childViewGroup) doesn't fetch ViewGroups it does only for Views. Note: I cant define a whole new layout.xml for this minor requirement since it is huge layout file and might cause performance overhead. I wanted to just change the width of the child view group in my java activity code.

Android :: Increase Width Of Button Without Stretching Image?

Oct 5, 2010

Kind of a newbie question, I suppose:

I've got a horizontal layout with Button, SeekBar, Button. I'd like the actual space (and active area) of the button to be somewhat wider than the image (a round dot) used for the button.

So I tried setting paddingLeft and paddingRight on the button.

But what I got was the round dot stretched into an oval.

How would I increase the width of the button without stretching the image?

Android :: Possible To Load A Layout XML At Runtime And Load Into Activity?

Sep 4, 2010

Is it possible to load a layout XML at runtime and load into activity?

In my app, I have various types of data like Person, Company, City, etc; The requirement is to dynamically load the layout, find views by tags (property names like Person.name, Person.address) and then fill in data. For example, if user has selected an object of type Company, we want to load a company.xml layout, inflate it and then associate various properties (company name, company slogan, city, address, revenue) to tagged views. One possibility I see here is - each view in the layout will be associated with property-name as tag and then appropriate data will be loaded in appropriate views.

What should be the best design you would recommend?

Android :: How To Layout Button?

Aug 9, 2010

I would like to apply both an icon and text to a button. The button would have the icon centered in the button and text written at the bottom, centered. I could not get the text to center and be at the bottom using android:gravity.A side note, for a layout with 6 buttons is a Table Layout the best way to do it? There is 3 rows and 2 columns.Another side note, why does the button lose its rounded edges when I add background color?
