Android :: TextView Inside LinearLayout Stretches The LinearLayout

Aug 21, 2010

If I have 2 LinearLayouts split %50/%50 everything is fine. Weights are 1 and 1. As soon as I add a TextView inside the top LinearLayout, it stretches that layout. I use "wrap_content" as the documentation says I should when it comes to weights. As you can see the red and green should be split evenly and text on grey background should be inside red box.

Here is the code:..............

Now if I switch to "fill parent" as follows it actually works but it creates another problem. Here is the code (so far so good):

So looking at above we were forced to use "fill_parent" and we would think like we fixed the problem but here is the problem if we are using "fill_parent" (I took out the textview just to show the problem, textview doesnt make the problem go away anyways):

As you can see I assign the weights 3 (top red) and 2 (bottom green) but what actually happens is they get flipped: The red becomes 2 and bottom becomes 3. Just measure the pixels too see.

Here are the results of the 3 codes: http://imgur.com/iVt8g.jpg

Android :: Bottom Of One LinearLayout Being Hidden By Other LinearLayout

May 25, 2010

I have a RelativeLayout that has two LinearLayouts in it. One is a bunch of TextViews and EditTexts that make up a form and the other is a ButtonBar that submits the form.

anyways, everything looks great in portrait, but when i switch to landscape mode the bottom TextView/EditText element is being hidden by the buttonbar.

screenshot to show the problem. as you can see some of the "email" textview and all of the email edit text are being hidden by button bar.

Android :: Centering Text In Lists ?

Jul 10, 2010

Say I have a list of Strings with the elements:

"One",
"Two",
"Three",
"Four"

I want to center them in the middle of the screen but I want to do it in a way that the start of each word is next to each other.

Like this:

One
Two
Three
Four

Considering that the font probably has different length per character, how do I do this best in Android?

Android : Absolute Centering In Android Layout

Jul 22, 2010

I've spent so much time trying to figure this out. I'm building a dialog layout and trying to get the Title centered relative to the dialog while having 2 buttons on either side of the title. The buttons are to be 'gravity-ed' towards far left and far right.

The easy part is centering the dialog, OR doing the buttons far left and far right. It's getting them to play nice with each other on the same line.

Easy way to think about it:

Title is centered in dialog
2 Buttons are independently aligned left and right on the same line. Any thoughts on how to do this?

Android :: Auto-centering And Auto-clipping TextView Background

Apr 4, 2010

Is there a way to tell Android to do the following when setting the background image for a TextView?

1. Scale the image so that it's just large enough to fill the the entire viewing area without any black borders, while still maintaining its aspect ratio. This might require clipping once the image is actually displayed, but that's OK (read on).

2. Then, center the image in the viewing area, both horizontally and vertically.

3. Finally, clip the image to the size of the viewing area, without any further rescaling.

I'm guessing that this kind of image processing is not automatically done via any of Android's facilities, and that I'll have to do it myself. If this is a correct assumption, could someone point me to some documentation or some examples which could explain how I can accomplish this? I'm guessing that I'll have to subclass my TextView and implement my own onDraw() method, but could someone confirm or deny that assumption?

Android :: Get Height Of A Linearlayout

Nov 1, 2010

I'd like to get the height of a linearlayout. I found more information in this answer

View.getWidth()/View.getHeight() won't give you a meaningful answer until the view has been measured.

How will I know that view has been measured? Is there some event for it?

Solution for me is to get layout's height in overriden onWindowFocusChanged()

Android :: LinearLayout Of WebView And Button

Mar 25, 2010

I recently struggled with an apparently simple Android layout: I wanted a WebView above a Button. It worked fine with the following parameters:

WebView:
Height: wrap-content
Weight: unset (by the way, what is the default?)

Button:
Height: wrap-content
Weight: unset

However if the web page became too big it spilled out over the button. I tried various combinations of weights and heights, and all except one either completely hide the button, or partially cover it...............

Android :: LinearLayout - Use Another API's Layout Manager?

Nov 7, 2010

On the emulator, I see the custom SurfaceView _map Object take up the whole screen, except for the EditText text-box at the bottom, right where it should be. When I run the same code, same everything, on my Motorola Droid, there is no EditText to be seen anywhere. I figure that I am missing something with the LinearLayout implementation I have. Until now, I've gotten off easy on learning how to use another API's layout manager.

Android :: Adding Checkboxes To LinearLayout

Sep 9, 2010

I want to add some checkboxes to a LinearLayout at runtime. The orientation is vertical and I want the checkboxes to appear at the bottom. I create each checkbox like this: CheckBox box = new CheckBox(this);

Then I add the box to the current view like this: addContentView( box , params ); What should be the params to get the effect I want? So far, everything I've tried ends up overlaying the new checkboxes on top of each other and on top of the other items in the layout. I want everything stacked in a column with the new checkboxes at the bottom.
