 I'm trying to access "android:versionName" in another XML resource
file. I tried to use @android/versionName and @android:versionName,
but neither work. Can anyone help me out?

 Afaik, the versionName attribute is not a string you can reference
from other resources.

However you can programatically retrieve it like this:
  PackageManager pm = getPackageManager();
  PackageInfo pi = pm.getPackageInfo(getPackageName(), 0);
  mVersion = pi.versionName;

For example I do that to dynamically inject it in my html about page.

1. creating a canvas based on OpenGL


I am writing an application that uses both 2D and 3D.

For the 3D part I use OpenGL, and for the 2D part, I do: Drawable.draw

There is a desynchronization between them
I have heard that you can create a Canvas based on OpenGL, and then
when I draw into that canvas, it is redirected to the opengl

something like this:

if (GL != null)
   myCanvasGL=new Canvas(GL);

and then, when I use Drawable.draw(myCanvasGL);
that drawable should be drawn into the opengl surface...

I must be missing something, because all I can see is a frustrating
black screen...

any ideas, please...

2. Error with Linear Layout

Hi Everyone,

Eclipse doesn't seem to like the constant VERTICAL in the
LinearLayout. Can you tell me what the problem might be.

Here is a snippet of the code I have. I am using the latest Android


import android.widget.LinearLayout;

public class HelloViews extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        LinearLayout ll = new LinearLayout(this);
