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?

I would like to have a simplified form of aLogcat. So, I am trying to

however, when I run the same command: logcatProc =
                                        new String[] { "logcat", "-v", "time",  
"*:V" });

The inputStreamReader always gets 0 lines.There are no errors logged.
app uses_permission ReadLogs is specified in the manifest.

Why do I get 0 lines all the time?
