 I was over at db4o and they had a demo with the emulator displayed in
landscape (sideways) mode.

How do you do that?

I'm developing and app that needs the keyboard exposed.

2. prescale bitmaps for a list view

Hi all,

I'm trying prescale bitmaps for the listview as described by Romain
Guy in has presentation at the Google IO.
But I have a problem with the size of the scaled bitmap.
 Let's say I have a 256x256px bitmap, in my listview I have:

 <ImageView android:id="@+id/thumbnail"
        android:layout_height="80dip" />

Now I scale images using Bitmap.createScaledBitmap(originalBitmap, 80,
80, true) and change layout to

 <ImageView android:id="@+id/thumbnail"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

But on the display image looks ~30% larger then it was before!
I guess it has something to do with the logical pixel density and the
physical dpi, but I can not figure out how to get this
conversion factor. I tried android.util.DisplayMetrics but still don't
get it.

Could you please explain it to me.

Thank you!
