 a switch statement is made for nested if statements.

switch statement is greate if you have a bunch of selections, to make a
switch statement perform better you have to look at what user will likely
selection the most, and implement that case on the top most case in the
switch. Accessing that case will be faster than accessing cases at lower end
of the switch statement.

1. Smaller tabs, such as the Facebook official app

You can try using setView() to control the contents of the tabs:


I haven't yet experimented with this to see if that affects the tab
heights or not.

If you can find an APK with the smaller tabs, you can always toss that
into an emulator and use hierarchyviewer to try to figure out how they
pulled it off. Alas, hierarchyviewer does not work on devices. :-(

2. DOMException while cloning XML Node


The cloneNode methon in the following minimal example works on java
1.6 but throws an DOMException with code 14 under android 5.

Code 14 according to sdk dok means:
If an attempt is made to create or change an object in a way which is
incorrect with regard to namespaces."

Has anybody an idea why this might be?
Thank you in advance!
