I'm writing a drum-machine app and trying to create a very basic layout of 2 rows of 4 button views per row. I'm completely confused by the TableLayout and am starting to think that's not even the way to go for what I'm trying to do. I'm looking for the equivalent of an HTML table, where I can create 2 rows of 4 buttons where each button is equal sized and spaced to fill the layout-size of the overall table (both width and height). No matter what combination I try of "wrap_content" and "fill_parent" on the TableLayout, TableRow, or individual Button's, I can't seem to get it to layout correctly. I saw an article here about a user-created layout (MyGrid, or something like that), but it looks like that doesn't work in SDK v1.0, but it seemed to be EXACTLY what I'm looking for.
Also, is there some secret resource you guys are using for documentation? I'm self taught and have been using .Net, where I got spoiled by MSDN's documentation where they explain the class in detail AND give working examples of actual use, the android documentation has been painful to work with at best.
Gracias in advance.
