Android :: Button Not Centered Vertically In LinearLayout?

Feb 3, 2010

I have a LinearLayout, 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 RelativeLayout, the button can not be centered vertically either.

The XML is as below. Is there anything wrong with this layout?

<?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="wrap_content" android:background="#E8E3E4">
<Button
android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="More" android:layout_gravity="right" />
</LinearLayout>

Android :: How To Write Centered Multi Colored Text To Canvas

Sep 10, 2010

I am writing to a canvas from a thread.

public void draw(Canvas canvas) {
Paint p = new Paint();
p.setAntiAlias(true);
p.setTextSize(30);
p.setColor(Color.WHITE);
p.setTextAlign(Paint.Align.CENTER);
canvas.drawText("Centered", xCentre, yCentre, p);
}

My problem start when I have a multi colored SpannableStringBuilder which I want to write to the canvas, and I have no idea how to do this. SpannableStringBuilder has a drawText() method which I have been unable to use. Or is there some other method to write a string to a canvas where some of the letters have a different color?

Android :: Resize Options Menu - Get Icons Centered?

May 2, 2010

I created a basic options menu, here an example of creating an element of me menu: menu.add(0, MENU_BACKWARD, 0, "").setIcon(R.drawable.btn_backward);

As you can see I don't want to show any text in this menu, just an icon ! But when the menu is showed, there is a "ugly" blank under the icon (the text is supposed to be there) and I want to avoid this. A least if it's possible to center the icon the options menus, it will be great.

Android :: How To Keep The Selected Item Of A ListView Vertically Centered

Nov 18, 2009

1) A ListView with many items (i.e. scrolling will occur at some point)

2) At the beginning, the selection is at the top (item #0)

3) User is scrolling down (i.e. we're not in touch mode)

4) For the first items, the selection is moving down without the list to scroll.

5) Once the selected item is reaching the middle of the list's viewport: the list starts to scroll-down.

6) Then, toward the end of the list: scrolling stops and the selection keeps moving down until the last item is reached.

It's a common feature in (keyboard-enabled) UI frameworks but I don't believe it's possible to achieve with Android, as for now... Right?

General :: 7 Inch Galaxy Tab - Display Moving Google Map With Current Location Centered?

Mar 18, 2012

Any widget that will display a moving google map with my current location centered? There are a couple apps I've found that are close, they just don't update in realtime. The reason I ask is because I have my 7" galaxy tab mounted in my truck. I use a program called torque to add gauge widgets (coolant temp,boost pressure, rpm,etc) to my home screen and would like to have a moving map display as well. I understand this would be a battery hog,but the tablet is always plugged in.

Android :: Vertical Button Text

Sep 7, 2010

I want to display the text for some buttons vertically "down the screen" instead of horizontally. I don't want the orientation of the letters to change just the direction in which the letters are printed. Is there any way to achieve this, other than creatng a drawable that has the letters in this format and using it as a background? I guess I'd need to center the letters horizontally as well.

Android :: Image With Button / Text With ImageButton

Aug 12, 2009

A 'Button' view comes up with text, while the 'ImageButton' widget comes up with an image but no text, is there a way to relatively easily (e.g. method calls, say), either:

1. Add text to ImageButton (like those buttons that appear in menu item/via the physical menu button)?

2. Add an icon/image to a Button?

without resorting to constructing a new button class? I.e. I could put text within the image, but then I can't use Localization properly/effectively.

Android :: Combining Text And Image On Button

Oct 7, 2009

I'm trying to have an image (as the background) on a button and add dynamically, depending on what's happening during run-time, some text above/over the image. If I use ImageButton I don't even have the possibility to add text. If I use Button I can add text but only define an image with android: drawableBottom and similar XML attributes as defined here.

However these attributes only combine text & image in x- and y-dimensions, meaning I can draw an image around my text, but not below/under my text (with the z-axis defined as coming out of the display). One idea would be to either extend Button or ImageButton and override the draw()-method. But with my current level of knowledge I don't really know how to do this (2D rendering). Maybe someone with more experience knows a solution or at least some pointers to start?
