Android :: Layout With Dynamic Position
I have a layout which might be a bit unusual.
The structure is the following:
My customRelativeLayout at the bottom of the XML has a XML layout too:
What I want to do: I want to be able to change the position of my CustomRelativeLayout. It should be follow my touch. Its smaller than the SurfaceView and should "slide" above following my touch...
There are two problems:
The onTouchListener bind to mLinearLayout (in CustomRelativeLayout) is only triggered once and only for ACTION_DOWN. I see the log output only once The note never changes the position, it is never redrawn with the changed matrix... I see the output stated in onDraw never after the touch happened.
First might be because the SurfaceView also handles touch events. But I thought if the CustomRelativeLayout handles it first, it should work.
Thanks to Xil3 I was able to remove the wall I was run into...
Here is my solution:
My note xml:
And here is my constructor:
I also found a bug/feature/issue, which is absolutely new for me: When I remove the background in my note root element (which is currently transparent) the note is only visible within the 200dp width/height I have set in the inner LinearLayout. So its not fill_parent, its wrap_content even as I set it to fill_parent. So layout_width and layout_height only use the given fill_parent when a background is set...
Android :: How To Position Buttons In Linear Layout?
RelativeLayout is more flexible, and can do what AbsoluteLayout can do and more.
To place views on top of one another you can also use FrameLayout, positioning these frame layouts in their parent layout:

I was told not to use an absolute layout, and use a linear layout instead. However, I am now having an issue with placing the buttons over the picture. The linear layout does not allow me to position them correctly where they need to go. How do I properly position a button so that it is over a certain part of the image?

Android :: Layout Should Stay At Specific Position After Content Change
I have a layout which contains a TextView.
The content of the TextView might change on runtime. (discussed on a different issue here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3683727/layout-with-dynamic-position )
I can position the layout by drag&drop. If the size of the layout doesn't change, the position stays, but as soon as the size of the layout changes (because more text inside the TextView) the position is reseted.
I use the layout(left, top, right, bottom) to position the layout.
Now I don't know where I should add my layout() call to make sure it stays at the right position...

Android :: Context Menu On Table Layout How To Get Selected Item Position?
Context Menu seems quite handy as long as we are using an AdapterView as we can easily get selected item position in onContextItemSelected from AdapterContextMenuInfo.position Any idea how we can achieve something similar in a TableLayout? In my TableLayout, i have some TableRow and i would like to get the row index in the onContextItemSelected callback like i would do with a simple ListView. I guess i will have to register the contextmenu for each row? but how can tie the row index with the menu? i see no way to do it with registerForContextMenu.
Android :: Button In Arbitrary Position Over RelativeLayout
I'm trying to build an android application that features a graphical display drawn within a RelativeLayout. I want to place "+" and "-" buttons next to several of the parameters, which are drawn at various points on the canvas. The positions are free-form don't seem to conform to any of the standard XML layouts.I know how to create the buttons programmatically, but I don't know how to place them over the canvas where I need them to be. I'm assuming that this would be done in the view thread's doDraw() method, after all the graphics have been drawn, but how?
Android :: Relative Layout In Java Code With Inflate And Custom View - Position Error
I have a custom view that I had to write for a large scrollable image, as the images are larger than the size of the screen. Before, I had tried to do it by putting the image into a ScrollView but that of course didn't work. The view itself is within a RelativeLayout within the activity and at the bottom of the screen I have two buttons that are used for navigation and at the top a TextView with a caption for the activity (the main header is already being used here for instruction). In my below code, I've checked the Hierachy Viewer to confirm all the elements are loaded and in the Activity I can see the TextView, however it overlays the ZN5ScrollView area and below the image I just have a blank area of the size defined rather than my buttons. For the bottom navigation, the Hierachy Viewer is saying the absolute_y of the bottom navigation is 480. I'm wondering if anyone can help with my layout code here to get this working correctly? Bottom navigation is 50px high, ZN5ScrollView is 365px above the navigation, and the TextView takes up the rest of the area at the top
Android :: Changing Position And Margin Of Button Dynamically
I would like to change margin of my buttons in application. Suppose I have 5 buttons like this in a linear layout, one below d other. When I focus on a button, its width should increase (which I know how to handle) and at the same time, width should increase linearly towards both left and right. i.e. If the current width of the button is 250 with x co-ordinate as 50 (that means button's left is 50 and button's right is 300), when I focus on the button I should get x co-ordinate as 75 (left = 25 and right = 325). How to change the margin/x co-ordinate of the button?
Android :: Android: Place A Button At An X,y Position Over Top Of Canvas
Is it possible to place buttons at an X,Y position over the top of a Canvas?
For example, on the opening screen of my game, I would like to place buttons for "Play Now", "Instructions", etc, right on top of the canvas.
Right now, I'm looking at Touch locations on the Canvas and comparing them to various X,Y bounds. It works, but adding a button with a click listener would probably be much more efficient.
Android :: How To Layout Button?
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?

Android :: Add Button To Linear Layout
I have a linear layout like this:
<LinearLayout android:id="@+id/header" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:orientation="horizontal" android:gravity="center_vertical" <ImageView android:id="@+id/icon" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_gravity="top" android:src="@drawable/img1" /> <TextView android:id="@+id/atitle" android:singleLine="true" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" /> </LinearLayout>
I need to add a button to the above layout problematically which is right justified? I need to do that in code instead of layout xml file (this is because i can't modify that layout xml file). Here is what I am doing: LinearLayout header = (LinearLayout) findViewById(R.id.header); Button buyButton = new Button(this); buyButton.setText(R.string.buy_ringtone); buyButton.setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams( ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT)); header.addView(buyButton);
But the button does not appear. Can you please tell me how can i achieve that?

Android :: Can't Access Button On Another Layout
I'm expanding on the hello world application. I've created a button on the main.xml to bring up a new form, screen2.xml, with a second button. I'd like this this button to toast a message. However, as soon as I try add the code to define the OnClickListener, I get a force close message.Does this mean one Activity can only access one screen/layout?
HTC EVO 4G :: Screen Rotation - Delay When Switch From Horizontal Position To Vertical Position
On my htc i was looking through display, i see g sensor calibration and i perform this calibration and after i do so the screen seems to have a delay when switch from the horizontal position to the vertical position. its weird because when i switch to the phone horizontally it switch normally and responds fast. but when i switch back to vertically it takes almost 7 seconds to actually switch back, sometimes it switch within 2 or 3 secs but never as quick as switching horizontally.

If you're already updated, shut down and repower (soft reboot) should do the trick. I actually updated my phone and after it started to do this. I restarted the phone plenty of times i even took the battery out for 30 seconds. It only does it when im texting on the browser, basically everything but the camera. He camera screen rotation is perfect. I even rooted the phone but i havent figured out how to use the root to fix the problem. Should i do a firmware update? Because i just did the htc software update.

Android :: Center Layout Hiding Button
I am working on a fairly basic screen layout for my first Android application and running into some issues. My goal is to have a TextView in the top left and top right corner, a large "hello world" TextView in the exact middle of the screen, and then a button at the bottom of the screen.My issue is, to center the "hello world" TextView vertically, I need to set the layout_height="fill_parent".However, this causes the middle TextView to cover and hide the button at the bottom of the screen. Is there a better way to do this than what I am currently trying?

Android :: How To Center A Button Vertically In Linear Layout?
I have a Linear Layout, which only contains one button. I want this button to be centered vertically and aligned to the right. I tried many ways, but I couldn't make this button centered vertically. It is always aligned to the top. I also tried to put a button in Relative Layout, the button can not be centered vertically either. The XML is as below.

Android :: Layout Bottom Button Keeps Coming Up Over Keyboard
I have a layout which does almost what I want. There's just one bug regarding the button at the bottom. I should stay at the bottom at all times.

Android :: Choose Button Layout To Include At Runtime
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"
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"
==> includes "@layout/include_above_buttons"
==> includes "@layout/include_button_layout_small"
==> includes "@layout/include_below_buttons"
