I believe only the package name have a significance.

You can just change the name of your app (eg. /res/strings.xml/
appname), and resubmit it.

Beside in the market you have a field for the AppName, which I believe
is the name used when browsing the market.

Anyway, the submit process won't let you mess with it, you can try and
upload your new app with a new name and the same package name on top
of your old one. If it is not allowed the market will tell you and
refuse your new version.

You can also try with a dummy app you make just for testing purpose.
You simply won't publish it and remove it afterwards.

I say that from the top of my head, so please come back afterward and
tell us how you did.

Good luck.

 I think you can just make the change. It should work.

Thanks and Regards,

in order to compare it's height, with the child's one, then according
to that condition hide/show the Button. But I'm facing a repaint issue
since this is made once the layout has been set by

So now I'm trying to inflate the layout that contains this ScrollView,
perform this height comparison before the Activity.setContentView()
it's called.

The problem is that the LayoutInflater inflates the layout without any
measure (width = 0 and height = 0).

This is how I'm inflating the layout:

LayoutInflater inflater = getLayoutInflater();
LinearLayout layout = (LinearLayout) inflater.inflate(R.layout.main,

Is there a way to retrieve the Activity's first ViewGroup in order to
inflate my layout with a parent? I think the issue is related with

Thanks a lot in advance,
