Android Build a Simple Android App (retired 2014) Pretty Little Things Customizing Buttons and Labels

Setting the textView gravity to center_horizintal crams all the text to the right side. What happened?

Around 5:00 in the video I am instructed to set the textView gravity to center_horizontal, but if I do all the text gets smooshed to the right of the green vertical center line and cropped off. The same thing happened to my text on the button, but I was less concerned about that since it was going to be replaced anyway.

Hey Craig,

check if your layout is match_parent both for height and width and see if it works

Heh, so I open up Eclipse to check on your suggestion, and everything looks fine. Perhaps it was a fluke on the part of the ADE. I do appreciate the quick reply :)
