Creating Layout For A Menu?

Jan 16, 2012

I'm creating a menu in XML using the eclipse software.Unfortunately, I'm no expert in XML but I have attempted to create a basic menu.

The issue I'm having is the alignment of the menu buttons. The buttons on the left column are smaller in width compared to the buttons in the right column. I know this may not seem much of an issue now, but the problem is made worse if I edit the text value of the buttons.

I want to achieve even distribution for both columns of buttons but I have been scratching my head trying to figure this one out!

find below an image describing my program and the code:

Code:
<TableLayout
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<TableRow android:background="#FFFFFF">

[code]....

Creating ActionBar Menu?

Jul 5, 2012

I am working on mapactivity for googlemaps api. I created options menu which includes 5 different menu items. What I need is whenever I click on each of the menu item it should open another menu may be something similar to contextual action mode which should contain some views like button and a text editfield. I need to enter address in edit field and button to click on GO which should thereby locate the address on the map.

What I did is, in OnOptionsItemSelected() I am passing setcontentview with new ref.id(xyz.xml) which contains edittext and button. But I am not able to pass button.setonclicklistener() after that. The application gets crashed running this peace of code.

I think this is a wrong way of doing but I didn't find any other way to get the options with edit and button. I am working on java.

Creating A Calendar Layout

Oct 8, 2011

I'm starting a calendar app and I'm trying to figure out what the best way to create the layout is. I don't want to use the built in CalendarView as it's only in API >11 which limits the potential users too much.

I've toyed around with a GridView with and Adapter behind it. Truth be told I'm still figuring out how that one works, but it seems the most promising.I tried a nested LinearLayout of TextViews but that requires accessing each TextView be it's ID.

Android :: Creating Scrollable Layout

May 6, 2010

I'm trying to create a "scrollable" layout in Android. Even using developers.android.com, though, I feel a little bit lost at the moment. I'm somewhat new to Java, but not so much that I feel I should be having these issues--being new to Android is the bigger problem right now.The layout I'm trying to create should scroll in a sort of a "grid". I THINK what I'm looking for is the Gallery view, but I'm really lost as to how to implement it at the moment. I want it to "snap" to center the frame, like in the actual Gallery application.Essentially, if I had a photo gallery of 9 pictures, the idea is to scroll between them up/down AND side to side, in a 3x3 manner. Doesn't need to dynamically adjust, or anything like that, I just want a grid I can scroll through.I'm also not asking for anyone to give me explicit code for it--I'm trying to learn, more than anything. But pointing me in the right direction for helpful layout programming resources would be greatly appreciated, and confirming if it's a Gallery view I'm looking for would also be really helpful.EDIT: To clarify, the goal is to have ONE item on screen at a time. If you scroll between one item and the next, the previous one leaves the screen, and the new one snaps into place. So if it were a photo gallery, each spot on the grid would take up the entire screen size, approximately, and would be flung out of the viewable area when you slide across to the next photo, in either direction. (Photos are just an example for illustration purposes)

Android :: Creating Options Menu Available To All Activities In Application

Jun 20, 2010

I want to have an options menu that is available to all Activities in my app (on pressing the MENU button). I've been doing this by creating it in onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) for each Activity but this seems redundant. Is there a way to create it in one place and have it available in all Activities?

Android :: Creating Context Menu Based On Information From Cursor

Jun 10, 2010

I have a ListView which is populated with items and I would like to be able to create the context menu based on some information fetched from the Cursor used to create the row. Is there a preferred approach for storing a boolean or flag associate with the row? Eg. should it be in the View? I could make the decision when creating the menu too, but I need to get a unique id from the row in the ListView public void onCreate ContextMenu (ContextMenu menu, View v, ContextMenuInfo menuInfo) {ListView listView = (ListView) v; Also listView.getSelectedItem() seems to return null, listView.getSelectedItemId() gives a very negative number and listView.getSelectedView() is null too. I thought that the mSelectedItem in the listView would be populated when creating the context menu. Or it could be some typo somewhere

Android :: Creating A Custom Image Based Layout?

Sep 26, 2010

Is it possible to create a layout based on (background) images? For example, there is well know app called Appie that uses this picture as a homescreen:

I might be able to recreate the layout with a TableLayout, but this will be difficult to get it perfectly aligned with the buttons in the image. The default layout options make it very difficult, or maybe impossible, to allow for selection of the buttons on the image (especially when the buttons are in an arc-path). Can anyone tell me how this is done?

Creating Custom Layout - Black Screen Displayed?

Jul 14, 2012

I am using:

Android 4.0.3
OpenCV 2.4.2
Samsung Galaxy S2

The face-detection example (from the opencv 2.4.2) is working perfectly. But now, I would like to create a custom layout and actually work with just the data extracted from face detection and build a game on it. Not necessarily having the FdView surface taking the entire screen.

I have done these modifications below, but just a black screen is displayed. Nothing appears on the screen.

Changed the BaseLoaderCallback in FdActivity.java

Code:
//EXPERIMENT
setContentView(R.layout.fd);
FdView surface = (FdView) (findViewById(R.id.FdView));[code]....

Android :: Independent Thread That Executes While Creating Layout And Defining Activity?

Jun 3, 2010

The android docs say that it adds the runnable to the queue and it runs in the UI thread. What does this mean? So, for example, the same thread I use to create my layout is used to run the Runnable? What if I want it as an independent thread that executes while I am creating my layout and defining my activity?

Android :: Which Layout To Use For 2x2 Image - Based Menu?

Nov 3, 2010

I am trying to create a screen (in portrait mode) that shows 4 images (same size, intended to scale down to fit screen), taking up the entire screen, breaking up the screen into quadrants (a tall, 2x2 grid). This will act as a main menu type of activity and each image should be clickable, in order to take the user to a different activity.

I have tried using a GridView inside a LinerLayout (using a lot from Google's GridView tutorial) but cannot get the images to all scale properly to fill the entire screen. I get extra margins around the images and/or scrolling of the entire screen. I have also tried using a TableLayout, placing 2 images in each of the 2 rows. Visually, that worked perfectly. Unfortunately when using that, I cannot seem to reference the ImageView items in the TableLayout in my activity code (findViewById always returns null)..................

Android :: Menu Buttons In Bottom Part Of Layout

Sep 16, 2009

My application has some buttons in the bottom part of activity layout, almost the same like iphone has on ipod app for example. I would like to create my layout so that it will self adjust on different screen sizes.

For example if the content in my layout has height = 400dip and the menu bar in the bottom has height = 100 dip, on every screen size (240*320, 320*480 etc.) i would like the menu bar to stay at the bottom so :

- on screen size 240*320 -> 100dip - for menubar -> 220dip - for content => it remains 180 dip to show, so this content area should be in some kind of a scrollview so that i can view 400dip in only 220dip.

I have tested different possibilities, with relativelayout so that the menu bar could stay on bottom, but i could not put the scroll view on top so that the scroll appears only on small screen sizes.

This is so sick, how do you build your layouts for different screen sizes ?

Android :: Context Menu On Table Layout How To Get Selected Item Position?

Jan 22, 2010

Context Menu seems quite handy as long as we are using an AdapterView as we can easily get selected item position in onContextItemSelected from AdapterContextMenuInfo.position Any idea how we can achieve something similar in a TableLayout? In my TableLayout, i have some TableRow and i would like to get the row index in the onContextItemSelected callback like i would do with a simple ListView. I guess i will have to register the contextmenu for each row? but how can tie the row index with the menu? i see no way to do it with registerForContextMenu.

Oct 13, 2010

I need to create an application with 4 view. I need to pass from a view to an other simply by a touch and a move to the left or to the right (no button). The effect I would like is the same that you see when you navigate in the main menu of android when you pass from a page to another.

I have tested the ViewFlipper, but I cannot use it: it seems not to catch the touch event correctly. I don't even know if it is the right component.

Android :: Unable To Open Both Main.xml Files / From Layout & Layout-land At Same Time?

Aug 14, 2010

While developing for Android, I am unable to open more than one main.xml file in an Eclipse editor at a time.Each time I open one, it simply replaces the editor (tab) of the first main.xml with the new one, instead of opening a new tab - even if the contents of the existing tab were unsaved.Even stranger, I can open multiple main.xml files from different projects with no problems.This only happens when they're within the same project.
