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!

1. setRequestedOrientation call flow

Hi, what's the actual call (function) flow from setRequestedOrientation
(java) down to SurfaceFlinger(cpp)?
Specially, can someone explain where the parameter 0 of
setRequestedOrientation get translated into ROTATION_90?



2. Portrait/Landscape mode supporting

Hello folks,

When we try to implement orientation in AP layer,
we can set "android:screenOrientation" parameter in
AndroidManifest.xml file or call "setRequestOrientation()" method of
Activity class.

But if I want to porting android in new HW device,
how can I do? Do I need to modify the graphic driver, or just add
configuration in program. (Actually I do some experiments but my AP
cannot rotate)

Besides, can every experts tell me when I set the
"android:screenOrientation" parameter, which process will read this
configuration, pass to where and which process will do the rotation?

Please give me some tips how to trace this flow.

Thanks everybody.
