Canvas drawing over my buttons

Postby Nomad0404 » Sun Mar 27, 2011 6:43 pm


I've relative layout on which I have several buttons at the top of the screen.

I'm then trying to draw on a canvas below the buttons.

Problem I have is that my box below the buttons draws but the buttons disappear.

I'm assuming the canvas is drawing over the buttons and obscuring them.

Any Ideas what I can do to stop this.

I can post my code if you want.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, I`m writing the same kind of application. I dont know how to drawing and showing buttons simultaneously.
I used example TouchPaint from but there only is drawing. I copied class MyView into my project and I can only drawing or showing buttons because I must choice between:

MyView myView = new MyView(this); // I can drawing


setContentView(; // showing buttons

Could you send me your project? My email is pavlo250
Sorry for my poor english.
