I have an EditText control to accept IP address fields. Its xml input
attribute allows everything else except IP addresses.
How to make the control accept dotted IP quad addresses only?

 Could you could create your own KeyListener and pass it into the
TextView via setKeyListener()?

 That is what I thought initially. But Editable has all types of
InputFilters you can register to validate/constrain input being
I didn't find any filter so far that can validate IP quads.
I will write one probably.

Did anyone else get this?  I'm assuming this isn't a phishing attempt
since I don't have to fill out anything.

I think this is a great indication of the seriousness of the Device
Seeding Program.  They're not done giving out phones after the
Developer Labs and the Market Developer giveaway.

2. RelativeLayout's alignParentBottom broken under ScrollView?

If I put a "fill_parent" RelativeLayout beneath a ScrollView, I can
not get an ImageView to align to the parent's bottom.

<ScrollView xmlns:android=""
                android:src=.... />

As a bit of basic sanity, I have verified that the ImageView will
align to the parent's bottom if I do either of the following.

1) Change "ScrollView" to "HorizontalScrollView"
2) Delete the ScrollView leaving only the RelativeLayout

This is very trivial. Why is it not working?
