Android :: Add Margin Between A Radiobutton Its Label In Phone?

Jan 25, 2010

Is it possible to add a little bit of space between a RadioButton and the label while still using Android's built-in components? By default the text looks a little scrunched.

<RadioButton android:id="@+id/rb1"
android:text="My Text"/>

I've tried a couple of things:

Specifying margin and padding seem to add space around the entire element (button and text, together). That makes sense, but doesn't do what I need.
Creating a custom drawable via XML specifying images for the checked and unchecked states, then adding a few extra pixels to the right side of each image. This should work, but now you are stepping outside the default UI. (Not the end of the world, but not ideal)
Add extra whitespace to the beginning of each label. Android seems to trim a leading space character, as in " My String", but specifying unicode U+00A0, as in "u00A0My String" does the trick. This works, but it seems kinda dirty.

Any better solutions?

Android : Get Localized Label Of Phone Types?

Aug 24, 2010

When changing the custom locale the label of the phone types change to the appropriate language. Does anybody know how to get the localized label of the phone types?

I pick a contact in my app to get its phone number and if there is more then one number I use an AlertDialog to let the user select the currect one. In this pick list, I want to show the label of the type, so it's easier for the user to select. Since they labels are somewhere in the Android system, it must be possible to get the localized label. Unfortunately, the Phone.LABEL is null when reading the phone number.

Motorola Droid :: Gmail Label Options - Skip Inbox Still Alert On Phone

Nov 28, 2009

What exactly does the gmail option "Labels: select wich labels are snycronised" do? Does it mean if I had a label set up and told it to go directly to that label and skip the inbox that i would still get an alert on my phone? The reason i am asking is because before i got this phone, i had a label in my gmail called "craigslist". Everything dealing with craigslist went into this and skipped the inbox. Thats worked well but i still need to be alerted when i get a new offer from craigslist. Will that snyc label option do what i want it to do?

Sep 16, 2010

I want to create a ListView with a RadioButton in every row. I'm using a CursorAdapter and I'm binding it in the right way, but I cannot manage correctly the RadioButton. I want that at any moment only one RadioButton to be checked (so when I check one, I would like the one that was checked before to uncheck). Furthermore, when I put the RadioButton on the row, I cannot manage anymore the setOnItemClickListener.

Android :: Droid RadioButton Not Able To Set Using SetChecked Method / Fix It?

Oct 27, 2010

If I set a radio button to be selected on the first time, it works fine. But if I unselect it by calling
((RadioButton) findViewById(;
then, later even if I try to make it selected by calling setChecked(true) will not work unless the user select it from the screen.

Have any one come across this? or is it only me?code...

If the else part is executed atleast once then everything gets mess up.
When I step thro my debugger, I can see the execution goes in the correct path and setting it to true. It is getting executed only once, I checked that. And I am not resetting it back to false in any other part of the code.

Android :: How To Set Margin Of ImageView Using Code - Not Xml

Aug 5, 2010

I want to add an unknown number of ImageView views to my layout with margin. In xml, I can use layout_margin like this:

<ImageView android:layout_margin="5dip" android:src="@drawable/image" />

There is ImageView.setPadding(), but no ImageView.setMargin(). I think it's along the lines of ImageView.setLayoutParams(LayoutParams), but not sure what to feed into that.

Does anyone know?

Android :: Customized Radiobutton - Image Gets Stretched And Placed In The Background

Android :: Automatic/dynamic Margin In Layout

Aug 10, 2010

I was wondering if it's possible to set an automatic/dynamic margin (padding?) between elements in an Android layout without having to do it programmatically?

For example let's say there is a horizontal LinearLayout which is set to android:layout_width="fill_parent" and that contains five elements. Is there a setting that evenly shares the remaining empty space of the LinearLayout to the margins of the child elements?

Android :: Layout Margin Left - Right Issue In 2.2?

May 28, 2010

I'm using a framelayout to position 2 buttons in the center of the screen. I'm anchoring from the center (using layout gravity = center_horizontal) then applying Layout margin left = 50dip and Layout margin right = 50dip to each button. In 2.2 the margins are being drawn much larger than the numbers I've declared (50dip/50dip). It looks more like 125 or 150. Oddly enough, this doesn't appear to be happening with margin bottom/top, only left/right. Is this a bug, or a sign that I'm doing something incorrectly?

Android :: ListView With RadioButton In SingleChoice Mode And A Custom Row Layout

Nov 22, 2010

I have a ListView, which is in singleChoice mode. All I want is to display a RadioButton to the side, that when clicked highlights to say it is selected, and when a different one is clicked that one goes back to unselected and the new one becomes selected. Why is this so hard? This should not be this complicated. I've spent DAYS looking for an appropriate answer to this and I have found nothing, so I'm asking hopefully in a clear and concise manner.

My layout for the listview (R.layout.view_orders):


My custom row (R.layout.orders_row):


My onCreate() method:


Now everything underlying works as expected, you click on a radiobutton and through it's tag I can appropriately select that item from the list and manipulate it how I want. However, when the first radio button is clicked, the last one will be selected. Click that same radio button again, and it is now selected as well. Click it once more and nothing happens, both the last and the first are selected. Now I click any other one on the list, it gets selected like expected. Click anyone of the selected radio buttons and nothing happens, the radio button remains selected.

I have tried using the following in onCreate():


And that just shows no radio buttons at all. AWESOME.

Now maybe (read: most likely), I'm just dense and can't figure this out, but I've seen this question asked a lot with no real answer. Lots of references to other tutorials or to the Commonsware guy's book. However, the comments are old now and his repository has changed so much, that those are no longer correct answers.

So, does anyone have any idea how to get the expected functionality out of this? Or failing that, just pass me along the GMail app's source code.
