Android ImageButton — can't get image in the center


I want to create an Android ImageButton in the xml file with a background image, and a smaller icon on top of that, right in the center. For some reason, it's not obvious how to do it, and documentation is no help.


However, no matter what I try (putting "wrap _ content" instead of absolute numbers on layout _ height and layout _ width, the icon remains in the top left corner of the button. If, however, I have no background image (i.e. a system default white button), the icon does go into the center. The button also goes into the top left corner when I use a color instead of an image for the background.

Why does this happen, and how would I actually get the behavior I want-- that is, a background image with the icon in the center?


try use the Button and set the background it's very useful and easy :D

make the text empty and you can use it like image button ^_^

I'm a real moron. That's how it appears in the display the Ecliplse plugin provide side-by-side with the XML editor. When I actually build the project and ran it on a device, it displayed everything correctly.

Windows cmd.exe does not use ' as string delimiters, only ". What you're doing is equivalent to:

perl -p -i.bak -e "'s/log/log,XYZ/g'" config.txt

so -w is complaining "you gave me a string but it does nothing".

The solution is to use double quotes instead:

perl -p -i.bak -e "s/log/log,XYZ/g" config.txt

or to simply leave them off, since there's no metacharacters in this command that would be interpreted by cmd.exe.


cmd.exe is just a really troublesome beast, for anybody accustomed to sh-like shells. Here's a few other common failures and workarounds regarding perl invocation.

@REM doesn't work:
perl -e"print"
@REM works:
perl -e "print"
@REM doesn't work:
perl -e "print \"Hello, world!\n\""
@REM works:
perl -e "print qq(Hello, world!\n)"
