 Hi Guys,

Ive just started fooling around with programming my Motorola Droid.
I'm programmatic ally laying out an interface such that the text
contained in my Button is sized at layout time to fit the button.  My
questions are:

(1) I know the pixel size of the button, what is the best way to set
the text size to fit the button size?
(2) I can't seem to get it to center.  I've tried a Gravity of 11 and
that helps, but ist still not right.  How do I get my text to center
itself properly horizontally and vertically in the button?



Centering text in a button?

 Some more info

The text is perfectly centered (but tiny) if I lave it at the default
setting.  If I try to scale it
up to match the button size however I lose vertical centering :(

Ive tried looking at the drawing code but it is massively complex.

Anyone know a soln?
