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?

1. GL11 Automatic Mipmap Generation not working

I've finally got around to mipmapping a bunch of my textures and
decided to make a fail-safe for GL10/GL11.  My code manually generates
mipmaps if the GL instance is only GL10, but if it's GL11, it sets

The next line I use is:

GLUtils.texImage2D(GL10.GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, bitmap, 0);

but I only get white textures.  Isn't that all I need to do for the
generate mipmaps call?  Also, if a GL is an instance of GL11, doesn't
that mean that it should fully support OpenGL ES 1.1?

I've written everything for OGLES 1.0, but I'm just getting confused
because the GL context I get on my G1 is an instance of GL11, yet this
doesn't appear to work correctly.
