SDK 1.5 & AbsoluteLayout (deprecated)

Postby guian » Tue May 12, 2009 1:48 pm

Hi guys!

from the 1.5 sdk AsoluteLayout is deprecated, I'm looking for a simple way to replace it...

from the android developpers google grup, we can read Diane Hakborn (Android framework engineer)
saying :
"We've said repeatedly that we won't be (intentionally) breaking old
applications. Removing a major API like this would be a huge breakage. It
won't happen."
"we are not going to remove AbsoluteLayout from a future
release, but we strongly discourage people from using it."

I don't know what it means exactly ^^

anyway, we have to replace AbsoluteLayout...

so if you have a simple way to do it, I think it can help many people...
(I keep looking the web for it... maybe using margins with FrameLayout to place our views... )

Well what was meant is that absolutelayout will not be removed.. it is simply not recommened to use
why its not recommened should be clear..
I think they set it on the deprecated list to prevent careless use of absolutelayout
