How is used AbsoluteLayout more than other layout?

Postby JamesAndroid » Thu Dec 10, 2009 9:16 am

Hi guys,

I would like to confirm about layouts.
I am using AbsoluteLayout for all Views of my application. Because I can design the screen on AbsoluteLayout using DroidDraw tool easily.

Is there wrong when always use AbsoluteLayout ?

Sorry for my amazing question.
I wanted to confirm about it.

Thanks in advance.

lol hai!

AbsoluteLayout is "teh suck". It does not work well for different sizes and shapes of the screen. If you want your app to work well on all kind of devices, I recommend getting used to using RelativeLayout alot =)

I do not know how good DroidDraw is, but heard that it works fine.
But does it also handle the changes in screen sizes?

someone else on this forum suggested watching this video and I think this will also help you
