Android :: Set Attributes - Margin - Gravity To View Programmatically?

Apr 27, 2010

I need to create a GUI (layout+views) in my .java activity class (I know it's far more flexible and easier to use .xml layout file, but I don't want to use it for now).

I can't find any setGravity() (but a "Gravity" object I can't figure how to use) or any set setMargin() method for the "View" object. What is the easiest way to do it?

Android :: Set Gravity For A TextView Programmatically

Sep 23, 2010

I can use android:gravity="bottom|center_horizontal" in xml on a textview to get my desired results but I need to do this programmatically.

My textview is inside a tablerow if that matters in a relativelayout.

I have tried:


But if I understand that correctly, that would apply it to the tablerow? not the textview?

Android :: How To Set Layout Gravity Of RelativeLayout Programmatically?

Nov 9, 2010

I have ScrollView with RelativeLayout as a child of ScrollView. I am trying through JAVA code to set Layout_Gravity to CENTER so my RelativeLayout is centered (horizontally and vertically) in the middle of ScrollView (that covers whole screen).This works fine in XML and produces desired result, but when I try to do this programmatically, it seems there is no way to set Layout_Gravity of RelativeLayout. I tried using LayoutParams, but couldn't find anything there that would help me to center RelativeLayout in the middle. So, am I missing something or this simply can't be done?

Android :: Set TextView Attributes Programmatically?

Sep 12, 2010

I am desperately trying to set TextView attributes of cells within a table programmatically but can't get this to work! Whenever I set layout properties, the field will simply not appear (but not give any error or exception). I boilded this down to this simple example:


This will show three fields, but when you uncomment the five commented line, then NOTHING will appear. Why is that so? Why does setting layout parameters cause my TextView's to not appear? I'm stuck! What am I missing?

Here's the manifest, if some kind soul quickly wants to try this out:

Android :: Add View To XML Layout Programmatically / Make It Z Order Below Existing View

Oct 8, 2010

I have an XML layout with some custom tabs, a heading, and a ProgressBar(main.xml). I wish to add another XML layout(home.xml) to the main.xml layout, as i wish to keep main.xml re-usable for other activity's layouts and simply add things to it as necessary.The problem: after inflating R.layout.home into rootLayout, it seems as though the ProgressBar contained in rootLayout is hidden underneath the content of home.xml.Is there a way to tell certain views(via XML) to float above other views when the layout is constructed in this way?if not, am i forced to use methods such as progressBar.bringToFront() to raise targeted views to the top?what alternatives do i have in z-ordering views when some layouts are constructed using inflation?

Android :: Creating View With Particular Style Programmatically

Android :: How To Fill Elements In List View Programmatically?

Nov 16, 2009

I have a ListView with an adapter extending BaseAdapter.I create a view (from a LinearLayout and I put some items ont it depending on some parameters. I have a textview, with a drawable and sometime another textview next to the drawable in this horizontal linearlayout. For some reason, this command doesn't seems to work. So when my textview doesn't fill the full width of the list, I can only click on the part of the elements with the widget on it. I have try playing a lot with the layout and I can't get this to work. The parameters seems to be ignore all together. Only hack that would work I found was to set a big minimum width on my linearlayout but I don't think that's the best solution.

Android : Change Absolute Position Of A View Programmatically?

Aug 9, 2010

If you use an AbsoluteLayout (I know that it is deprecated, but it was the only way to solve my problem ) you can give the childViews the tag "android:layout_x" and "android:layout_y" to set their absolute position within the AbsoluteLayout.

However I dont want to set these informationen in the xml, because I only know them at runtime. So how can I set these parameters at runtime programmatically? I dont see any method on the View like view.setLayoutX(int x) or something.

Here is my XML, which works fine, when I set the layout_x and layout_y values. code...

Android :: Programmatically Control Size Of Child View In AbsoluteLayout

Feb 18, 2009

The documentation at says:
onLayout(boolean changed, int l, int t, int r, int b) //Called from layout when this view should assign a size and position to each of its children. So I overrode it like this:

protected void onLayout(boolean changed, int l, int t, int r, int b) {
Log.d("test", "In MainLayout.onLayout");
int childCount = getChildCount();
for (int childIndex = 0; childIndex < childCount; childIndex++) {
getChildAt(childIndex).setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams(100, 100, 100, 100));
super.onLayout(changed, l, t, r, b);

I am declaring the child elements (buttons) in the XML for the layout. This correctly sets the position of the buttons but not the size. The size is being taken from what is defined in the XML (it's a required attribute).

PNG File Not Display In Image View When SRC Set Programmatically

Jun 8, 2012

I have a png file in my res/drawable-ldpi folder. I'm working in Eclipse with the emulator, but I've tried this on my 2.2.1 Android phone and I get the same behavior. I have an ImageView and I want to set the src programatically, based on a database call. If I just put


in the Activity's XML file, the file displays fine. BUT, if I put


String imageresource = "R.drawable." + parsedData[4].toString();
where parsedData[4].toString() = "nor_usdpyr" I don't see anything. I've also tried

String imageresource = "android.resource://" + getPackageName() + "/R.drawable." + parsedData[4].toString();


InputStream is = getClass().getResourceAsStream("/drawable/" + parsedData[4].toString());
chart.setImageDrawable(Drawable.createFromStream(is, ""));


String imageresource = "R.drawable." + parsedData[4].toString();
File file = new File(imageresource);


Context context = getApplicationContext();
int ResID = context.getResources().getIdentifier(imageresource, "drawable", "com.KnitCard.project");


chart.setImageURI(Uri.parse("android.resource://" + getPackageName() + "/R.drawable.nor_usdpyr"));
doesn't work.

None of these work. What am I doing wrong?

Android :: Gravity Vs Layout_gravity?

May 14, 2009

What is the difference between those attributes? According to the documentation of R.attr, there isn't any difference (doc text is exactly the same, see, but apparently, that's simply not true. For example, the gravity attribute can be used on EditText to set the text alignment (e.g. left, center, right).

I often found that neither of them work to align a view at all. For example, I need to float two text views in a relative layout, one going to the left below a title bar, the other going to the right below the title bar. So what I did was this:


That doesn't work, however. The left text is indeed aligned to the left inside its parent (the relative layout), but the right text is not aligned to the right; instead, it's placed directly to the right of the left text.

Android :: Accelerometer Gravity Components

Jun 7, 2010

I know this question is definitely solved somewhere many times already, please enlighten me if you know of their existence,

Quick rundown:
I want to compute from a 3 axis accelerometer the gravity component on each of these 3 axes.
I have used 2 axes free body diagrams to work out the accelerometer's gravity component in the world X-Z, Y-Z and X-Y axes. But the solution seems slightly off, it's acceptable for extreme cases when only 1 accelerometer axis is exposed to gravity, but for a pitch and roll of both 45 degrees, the combined total magnitude is greater than gravity (obtained by Xa^2+Ya^2+Za^2=g^2; Xa, Ya and Za are accelerometer readings in its X, Y and Z axis).

More detail:
The device is a Nexus One, and have a magnetic field sensor for azimuth, pitch and roll in addition to the 3-axis accelerometer.In the world's axis (with Z in the same direction as gravity, and either X or Y points to the north pole, don't think this matters much?), I assumed my device has a pitch (P) on the Y-Z axis, and a roll (R) on the X-Z axis. With that I used simple trig to get:
There is another set for pitch, P.Now I defined gravity to have 3 components in the world's axis, a Gxz that is measurable only in the X-Z axis, a Gyz for Y-Z, and a Gxy for X-Y axis.Gxz^2+Gyz^2+Gxy^2=2*G^2 the 2G is because gravity is effectively included twice in this definition. Oh and the X-Y axis produce something more exotic I'll explain if required later.From these equations I obtained a formula for Az, and removed the tan operations because I don't know how to handle tan90 calculations (it's infinity?).So my question is, anyone know whether I did this right/wrong or able to point me to the right direction?
