Android :: How To Reduce Padding Between Cells In TableLayout

Sep 12, 2010

I have a 3*3 TableLayout that contains buttons. But I cannot seem to remove the spacing between the buttons in the Table.Setting pading to zero for the buttons has no effect. Setting padding and layout_margin to zero for the TableRow has no effect. Setting layout_margin for the TableLayout has no effect.Any idea on how I can alter/remove/reduce the spacing between the cells?

Android :: Column TableLayout As Only Child Of Scroll View - TableLayout Width

Oct 30, 2010

I have a two column TableLayout as the only child of a scroll view. The first column contains TextViews ('labels') and the second column contains EditText/Spinner/DateWidget etc ('values').

Even though I have have specified android:layout_width="fill_parent" for TableLayout, TableRow & all widgets (in 'values' column).

The screen looks perfect when the activity is created. However, when one types a really long value in the EditText, the 'values' column goes beyond the visible screen area.

Android :: Fill_parent With ListView Cells - Single TextView Span One To Two Lines

Feb 12, 2009

I am having this issue where I am trying to have a single TextView span one to two lines, fill the cell completely (so you can also click edges of the cell and it will trigger) and center-align.

This is the layout for the cell:


However cells seems to be filled correctly ONLY if it happens to wrap around and end up spanning two lines of text. It shows center-aligned and you can click anywhere in the cell to trigger the click. The cells that do not span multiple lines of text are left-aligned and trigger (highlight) only if you click where the text is. There is a "numb" area which does not react to clicks inside the cell if the text is short.

Android :: How Do I Get Some Padding Around My Checkbox

Aug 10, 2010

I have a horizontal LinearLayout. This LinearLayout has a checkbox next to another LinearLayout. The layout width/height of the checkbox is wrap_content, whereas the inner LinearLayout is fill_parent/wrap_content. The layout_weight of the inner LinearLayout is set to 1.

I've tried to add some android:padding around the checkbox to give some space around it, but no padding is given. I've also tried android:paddingLeft/Right/etc. How do I get some padding around my checkbox?

Note: I have an inner LinearLayout because I will be adding more TextViews

Android :: Padding On Shape In Progressbar

Oct 27, 2010

Then I close my application and start it again, and, progressbar is displayed without padded background, on next start will be displayed correctly and son on ... Could you please advice possible reasons for this?

Android :: Padding List Items?

May 31, 2010

I have a list where i basically need a hierarchy of items. Any children of an item would be padded slightly, as to easily distinguish their parent item. How could this be achieved? Note that i could, if needed, make each parent show no children, and then when the parent is clicked, a new list containing all of it's children is loaded. This however requires more clicking to display information than i would prefer. Also, the items themselves will contain graphics and whatnot (to show a drag'n'drop button, etc), so it would be best if it visually appeared as if the item itself had a margin, rather than the contents of the item being padded.

Android :: Add Padding For Background Image?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a linear layout which has a background image (a 9 patched png file). How can I add padding to left and right so that the background image does not take up the whole width? I have tried 'android:paddingLeft' and 'android:paddingRight', but that does not change anything.


The whole background still stretches the whole screen width.

Android :: Need Place To Gridview Padding Or Imageview?

Oct 16, 2009

I'm doing the HelloViews Gridview tutorial and I ran into this problem.

I have a padding that I can't find where is it coming from.

XML is the following: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <GridView xmlns:android="" android:id="@+id/gridview" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:numColumns="2" android:verticalSpacing="0px" android:horizontalSpacing="0px" android:stretchMode="columnWidth"android:gravity="center" android:layout_margin="0dp" />

Android :: How To Add Padding To Gradient <shape> In Phone

Oct 25, 2009

I have a shape with a gradient that I'm using as a divider between ListView items. I've defined it as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

android:angle="0" />

I would like to add 6 pixels of padding on either side of the gradient, so that it doesn't extend from edge to edge of the screen.

However, no matter where I put an android:left="6px" and android:right="6px", it doesn't seem to take effect. I can put it in the <shape> element, the <gradient> element, or in a separate <padding> child of <shape>, and it doesn't change anything.

How can I add padding on the left and right of my list divider?

Android :: Padding Doesn't Take Effect For Shape In XML

I will provide below example of my shape.xml:

<shape xmlns:android="" android:shape="rectangle">
<stroke android:width="1dp" android:color="#ffffff" android:dashWidth="2dp"/>
<solid android:color="@color/button_white_cover" />
<corners android:radius="11dp" />
<padding android:left="1dp" android:top="20dp"
android:right="20dp" android:bottom="2dp" />

Android :: Getting Cell Signal Strength For Current Cell Vs Neighboring Cells

Jan 6, 2010

I'm writing an android application that collects cell signal strengths.I am having trouble getting the "current" cell signal strength, but I don't have any problem getting the "neighboring" cell signal strengths.To get the current cell signal strength, I created a PhoneStateListener and implemented the onSignalStrengthChanged callback.It works, but not very well.It seems like the signal strength hardly ever changes, and resolution jumps to only a few numbers.I would accept the answer that the resolution of the signal strength hardware is coarse, but when I use the TelephonyManager's getNeighboringCellInfo() method, it works much better.The signal strength readings from neighboring cells change frequently, and they have much better resolution.So, how can I get the current cell signal strength in the same way that I am getting the neighboring cell strengths?It seems odd to me that the functionality of the neighboring cells is better than the current cell.

Android :: Want To Remove Extra Bottom Padding On Widgets?

Sep 2, 2010

As you can see in the link below there is an extra padding (around 2mm) below the EditText field. I can't seem to remove this padding in anyway. This occurs with other widgets as well (like Buttons). It looks like Android is default adding this extra padding to all elements.

Android :: Is Progress Bar Correctly Handling Padding-values

Mar 4, 2009

Here is a skeleton of the class I'm currently working on. Unfortunatly, i'm stuck on two problems and it's driving me mad !

The first problem is about the onKeyDown(KeyEvent) : I don't understand why this method isn't called while I pressed a key on the emulator. The second problem deals with padding. Indeed, I'm always creating widget using fake paddings in order to be sure my widget correctly handle those values. Unfortunatly, I tried to extend a ProgressBar and I had some problems because my ProgressBar is clipped.

My code is :

import android.content.Context; import; import; import; import; import android.util.AttributeSet; import android.util.Log; import android.view.KeyEvent; import android.view.MotionEvent; import android.widget.ProgressBar; Code...

Android :: Expand Clickable Area Of An ImageView By Using Padding?

Nov 5, 2010

I have an ImageView, and I want it to be clickable. The image itself is only 32x32 pixels, but I want the clickable region to be larger so it's easier to hit. I was hoping I could set the layout margin values to increase the size of the imageview's clickable area:

layout_margin="20dip" />

That doesn't work, what I could do is just recreate the image resource to have a larger transparent region around it. That's a bit annoying because it's hard to tweak if I ever need to change the clickable region. It's not just a single png either, it's a statelistdrawable so I have to resize 3 different pngs if I ever need to tweak the clickable area.

Anything else I can do?

Android :: Way To Completely Eliminate Padding In A Linear Layout Containing Buttons?

Nov 6, 2010

I tried the following to try to display two buttons in a horizontal linear layout, with the edges of the buttons flush with the border of the linear layout. To my surprise, I found that there is always still padding between the buttons and the left, right and bottom edges of the linear layout. Only the top edges of the buttons end up flush with the border of the linear layout. Why is that? And is there a way to control this behavior?
<Linear Layout android:orientation="horizontal"
<Button android:id="@+id/feeling_done_button"
<Button android:id="@+id/feeling_cancel_button"
android:layout_margin="0dip"/></Linear Layout>
