[android] How to add scroll bar to the Relative Layout?

I am new to the Android app development. Now I am designing an app, in that I have an Activity which is containing some content but these content is some what more so the content is out of the screen. Now I wanna show that content to the user, but I don't know how to keep scrollers to the Activity.

How to show the total content to the end user with the scroller using RelativeLayout?

The answer is


Just put yourRelativeLayout inside ScrollView

<ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/ScrollView01"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent">
  ------- here RelativeLayout ------
</ScrollView>

I used the

<ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/ScrollView01"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent" >

<RelativeLayout

and works perfectly


You want to enclose it with a scrollView.


The following code should do the trick:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/ScrollView01"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent" >

<RelativeLayout
android:id="@+id/RelativeLayout01"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="638dp" >

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    style="@style/normalcode"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
    android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
    android:layout_marginTop="64dp"
    android:text="Email" />

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView2"
    style="@style/normalcode"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_below="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_marginTop="41dp"
    android:text="Password" />

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView3"
    style="@style/normalcode"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignRight="@+id/textView2"
    android:layout_below="@+id/textView2"
    android:layout_marginTop="47dp"
    android:text="Confirm Password" />

<EditText
    android:id="@+id/editText1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignBaseline="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
    android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/textView4"
    android:inputType="textEmailAddress" >

    <requestFocus />
</EditText>

<EditText
    android:id="@+id/editText2"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignBaseline="@+id/textView2"
    android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/textView2"
    android:layout_alignLeft="@+id/editText1"
    android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
    android:inputType="textPassword" />

    android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/textView3"
    android:layout_alignLeft="@+id/editText2"
    android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
    android:inputType="textPassword" />


<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView4"
    style="@style/normalcode"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
    android:layout_below="@+id/textView3"
    android:layout_marginTop="42dp"
    android:text="Date of Birth" />

<DatePicker
    android:id="@+id/datePicker1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
    android:layout_below="@+id/textView4" />

<TextView

    style="@style/normalcode"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_below="@+id/datePicker1"
    android:layout_marginTop="60dp"
    android:layout_toLeftOf="@+id/datePicker1"
    android:text="Gender" />

<RadioButton
    android:id="@+id/radioButton1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignBaseline="@+id/textView5"
    android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/textView5"
    android:layout_alignLeft="@+id/editText3"
    android:layout_marginLeft="24dp"
    android:text="Male" />

<RadioButton
    android:id="@+id/radioButton2"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignLeft="@+id/radioButton1"
    android:layout_below="@+id/radioButton1"
    android:layout_marginTop="14dp"
    android:text="Female" />

<Button
    android:id="@+id/button1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
    android:layout_marginBottom="23dp"
    android:layout_toLeftOf="@+id/radioButton2"
    android:background="@drawable/rectbutton"
    android:text="Sign Up" />
