Need help creating a basic menu design

Postby NewUser » Mon Jan 10, 2011 2:01 pm

I would like to create an inline menu at the bottom of the page with four or five options to select with each option being a simple box with text in. At this stage the menu does not need to be functional at all so clicking on the options does not need to do anything.
I believe what I am trying to create should be very simple but I've been trying for weeks and I'm back at square one.
I'm using Eclipse if that makes any difference.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm running out of time.
If this is the wrong place for this thread then I apologise.

Can you make a picture mockup of exactly what you are trying to achieve. I'd be happy to help, but want to see what you have in mind before generating too much. Are you wanting a programmatic solution, xml solution, or combo. Also, showing what you have already and what it produces would speed the process.

I suppose something like this (quick google search): http://www.androidtapp.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/my-collection-movies.jpg

One of the pages would have a search function, like in the picture, but the rest wouldn't.
Ideally I would want the menu options at the bottom, but at the top works too I suppose.

Currently I have written up code for two tabs, one blank and the other with a basic search text box and I would screenshot this but I am getting an error (Application has stopped responding, please try again) and I'm clueless at using the LogCat thing.

I'm trying to do as much as possible in xml simply because I prefer it to java, but I am using both.
