Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the ColorSpotR user interface, part of Learning Simple Android Development Tools.
…We'll begin by creating a new project, and we're going to call it Color Spotter.…Click okay.…And now we need to set up the user interface just as we had it before.…So let's go through that step by step.…We had a label at the top.…I'll make that label fill parent, to be wide.…We'll make that label 24 points.…And we'll set the text alignment to that label to center.…Now we need the spacer label.…So put that in.…We just need to change the text for that to the empty string.…Then we need our buttons.…
But remember we want to put our buttons in two sets of horizontal sets of three.…So we'll come down here to layout.…And drag a horizontal arrangement onto the screen.…Now we know we're going to put buttons in there but before we actually put the…buttons in, let's go ahead and finish building…the screen top to bottom, so we'll put…in the next spacer label that fits, sits between the first row and the second row,…we'll set its font size to 24, and we'll set its text to the empty string.…And then we'll bring in another horizontal arrangement to put underneath…
