How to use setContentView more than once

Postby HennaMullaji » Thu Feb 11, 2010 5:38 pm

Hello I am new to android development and have started experimenting with it from the last two mnths.
I am writing a code where i need to display a spinner as well as a piechart on the same page(i.e same screen one below the other).
As we can use setContentView only once in onCreate method...i was wondering as to how will I be able to display two things at a time .
Any help with code snippet will be useful.

Thanks in advance,

Just create a layout with both a spinner and piechart.

That aside, you can easily use setContentView multiple times (e.g., have a button change the setContentView). Just remember that changing views nulls references to buttons, etc. on the destroyed layout.
