I have used droid draw tool inorder to create a layout & executed the corresponding application in eclipse & observe the output in android emulator.
The application to be developed is a media player application. A playlist screen is to be designed. First a list containing the list items is to placed, later the description about each of the list item & finally three buttons for the left soft key, right key & centre push key.
The root layout i have used is absolute layout & only for the text view i have used a linear layout because the text can be changed dynamically according to the item in the list that is highlighted using only a linear layout & not an absolute layout.
