Example text

Html. There are also times when you want a view to be at least a certain size but bigger if needed. In these cases, you can use the minHeight and minWidth properties. For example, you might have a view that is meant to be touched, so you define a minHeight of 48dp but the layout_height as wrap_content. That guarantees the view will be at least large enough to touch, but it can be larger to accommodate more content. Two other parts of layouts are important to understand: padding and margins. If you were to set your phone next to another phone and think of each device as a view, you could think of the screens as the actual content, the bevel around the screens as the padding, and the space between the devices as the margins.

Although any view can actually handle user feedback, the following views are specifically designed to do so: AutoCompleteTextView—This is essentially an EditText that has an adapter to supply suggestions as the user is typing. CalendarView—This view lets you easily display dates to users and allow them to select dates. 6 for an example. 6 An example of the CalenderView CheckBox—This is your typical check box that has a checked and unchecked state for binary choices. Note that the B is capitalized.

Android gives you tools both to make displaying text easy and to make handling localization almost no work at all. Resources, covered in depth in Chapter 4, allow you to specify the displayed strings (among other types of content) outside of your layouts, letting the system automatically select the correct strings for a given user’s language. TextView TextView is one of the most common views in Android. As its name suggests, it displays text. What its name does not tell you is that it actually supports a wide variety of appearances and content.
