View background question

 Does anyone know how to set a View background drawable that clips the
image rather than scaling it (sort of like using a ImageView with wrap-
content instead of fill_parent).

I like to set background drawable and not have it distorted (looks
especially bad when going to landscape orientation).

Is there a way to do this?

Alternatively, is there a way to set an ImageView as a View
background and overlay the other views on it?

Thank you!

 I figured this out.

Use RelativeLayout and you can overlay views. This makes it possible
to use an ImageView to create a nonscaling backgroud.

Hope this helps someone out there!

2. Make SectionIndexer pick up new dataset


I have an extended BaseAdapter that implements SectionIndexer. I build
my own index data whenever the dataset changes.

It works fine, but when the data set changes, the grid keeps using the
same SectionIndexer data even after a manual update of the section
data in my adapter and an adapter.notifyDataSetChanged(), and even if
I make a new adapter and call grid.setAdapter( newAdapter ).

Anyone know how I can make the grid pick up the new section data ?

If I call use:

grid.setFastScrollEnabled( false );
grid.setFastScrollEnabled( true );

it works, but then, when I use the thumb control, the index position
appears almost invisible in the top left corner of the grid!

Thanks for any suggestion to fix either of these,
