I have a UI screen (Vertical orientation) in Android, that display a
english text string. String size is large and I am getting a default
scrollbar on the right side of my screen. Any way to move the
scrollbar to the left side of my screen?

How to show Scrollbar on Left side of screen

 Thanks. I understnad that scrollbar on left side of UI is not possible
with current SDK (assuming CupCake version).

Then, does Andriod has any roadmap to support Arabic languages, which
is a LTR and need scrollbar on LEFT?

In case I need to provide this support (i.e. scrollbar on left) in
Cupcake, does Android framework allow any scope for this? Is it JAVA
framework code that I need to enhance?

To move forward on this topic, do I need to discuss on a different
mailing list? I mean Android-Framework list?

2. Alternate preference screens

To provide alternate resources you supply extra subdirectories under
the res directory. To provide other language strings you'd do
something like:


Does this also work for preference screens? We'd like different sets
of preferences for pre OS 2.2 devices and OS 2.2 and greater devices.
I tried:


But the res/xml/preferences.xml file seems to be loaded on all devices
and the res/xml-v8/preferences.xml file is ignored.

I have a work around so it isn't critical, but would be nice to know.
