 Hello everyone,

I've been searching the internet and i have not found a proper
reference guide (with some nice examples) that describe all the
possible elements in XML files for resources such as layouts,
drawables, strings, manifests, etc., etc.

The only ones i find are some examples but I have no clear idea of
everything that may be out there.

For development i'm using Eclipse and the Android views help quite a
bit when creating layouts for views. However, i'm not sure Eclipse is
complete in that respect.

And when creating xml file for drawables, there is no help from
Eclipse whatsoever. That's why i'm looking for a (complete) reference
guide describing all the possible xml-elements and their attributes
(for example; how to create custom backgrounds with borders,
gradients, corners, shapes, strokes, etc. etc.)

Can someone point me to a resource with this kind of information.

Thank you very much!

2. Why is Google Account support removed?

As far as I can remember, the earlier versions of the emulator in the
Android SDK allowed setting up a Google Account to enable syncronising
calendar, contacts and gmail. Now, I haven't developed for Android for
a while now and just downloaded the latest SDK to try out some new
ideas. Setting up the first device, I found out that I cannot register
my gmail account anymore. Why was this feature removed?

How can I ever make an app that uses, for instance, calendar
information? I really don't want to debug on my phone before testing
it on an emulated device.
