as big is possible inside a supplied rectangle or to calculate the
size of a paint object based on a string and some rectangle

Thanks in advance

 thanks for your reply

in case anyone runs into the same problem i solved it using

1. calculate the scale factor between your original rect and the rect
returned by getTextBounds
2. multiply the font size by this factor

1. Main App & SurfaceHolder?

Hey guys, total Android noob here. :)

For my first app, I'm having a go at developing a simple video camera
(There isn't one yet~!)

So I've been reading through the docs, and I've come up with a tiny
bit of code.

...Sorry if there's code tags. (I'm a mod over at another forum, I
know the rules!) ;)

Anyway, I digress.

package com.android.hello;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.hardware.Camera;

public class HelloAndroid extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        Camera cam = Camera.open();

I'm stuck on assigning something with cam.setPreviewDisplay();

I've looked in the docs, and come across this method. I know it takes
a SurfaceHolder as a parameter.

But I can't instantiate a SurfaceHolder object, so I'm assuming the
main app has one?

Thanks in advance,
