Subject Finding pixel height of an Android device
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 15:20:50 GMT
Hi, I'm using the air 3.8 sdk for Flex mobile to build a mobile app on an
Android device. The problem I'm having is being able to find the dimensions
of the screen in any orientation without having to reorient the device
first. I need to find landscape and portrait screen dimensions of the device

It is easy to find the available screen dimensions of an iOS device using
FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.width /
FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.height. When the device is set to use the
full screen for app, and is rotated, width becomes height and height becomes
width. So I can check what the dimensions of the screen will be without
having to reorient the device first. On Android it is more difficult because
the operating system adds a system bar to the bottom of the screen.
Therefore when when the mobile device is rotated height does not become
width. So I cannot check what the screen dimensions will be

Does anyone know a way to find the actual height of an Android device's
screen, including the system bar. Then I can work out what the screen
dimensions will be in different orientations. Thanks for your help.
