Android Layout Tutorial

An Android layout is a class that handles arranging the way its children appear on the screen.  Anything that is a View (or inherits from View) can be a child of a layout. All of the layouts inherit from ViewGroup (which inherits from View) so you can nest layouts.  You could also create your own custom layout by making a class that inherits from ViewGroup.

The standard Layouts are:

AbsoluteLayout
FrameLayout
LinearLayout
RelativeLayout
TableLayout

In this article we will examine each of these layouts in detail.

I have also created a demo project that uses the code samples from this tutorial and from the Lots of Lists: Part 1, Simple List Activity tutorial.
You can download the demo source code here.

Next: AbsoluteLayout
