Chapter 5Designing Your User Interface with Views

In the previous chapter, you learned about the various layouts that you can use to position your views in an activity. You also learned about the techniques you can use to adapt to different screen resolutions and sizes. This chapter gives you a look at the various views that you can use to design the user interface (UI) for your applications.

In particular, the chapter covers the following ViewGroups:

  • Basic views—Commonly used views, such as the TextView, EditText, and Button views
  • Picker views—Views that enable users to select from a list, such as the TimePicker and DatePicker views
  • List views—Views that display a long list of items, such as the ListView and the SpinnerView views
  • Specialized fragments—Special fragments that perform specific functions

Subsequent chapters cover the other views not covered in this chapter, such as the analog and digital clock views and other views for displaying graphics, and so on.
