In this tutorial, I will go over many of the Android UI Layouts and Controls. Providing a few examples I will bring you step by step through creating, and implementing these to the completion of an Android Application.


This step by step guild is packed full of screen shots to guide you in the journey of learning about the different Android UI Layouts and Controls and how to use them in an application. Ready to code?  


This tutorial was made using Windows 8, Eclipse Platform 4.2.2 and the Android ADK 

Lets learn...

Step 1:  Definitions and Basic Components













Step 2:  Create a Relative Layout with some UI elements




















Step 3:  Change to LinearLayout with the same UI elements and two other layouts
























Step 4:  Code using the current UI Layouts and Controls












Step 5:  Add an include Other Layout with a UI Control








Step 6:  Add code for our newly added UI Control and run our application









Points of Interest

When I started this tutorial I had never used a ProgressBar, RatingBar, or SeekBar before, so I learned quite a bit through the process of creating it. :)
