Android Application Development - Drawables in Android

Class 2, Part 2. This video comes from Marakana's 5-Day Android Bootcamp Training Course which Marko Gargenta taught in San Jose, CA earlier this year.

This 60-minute tutorial will focus on Android drawables and how you can use styles and the Draw 9-patch tool to ensure they look great and scale properly across devices.

Marko will cover:

  • Creating and defining styles for drawables in an XML stylesheet
  • Applying styles to activities and buttons
  • Using the Draw 9-patch tool to affect how drawables scale

You can find all of the videos from the Android Bootcamp Screencast Series here.
