A better way to go about this would be to create variables for each
relevant width, height, offset variable that would be required in the

Then, you could simply set different values for each DPI value.  You get
your layout manually perfect for one DPI.  Then all you have to do is
multiply each value by the corresponding scale factor of the DPI.  As an
example, if you figure out all the variables for 160 DPI, the values for
240 DPI would be 1.5 x the value in 160 DPI, the values for 320 DPI would
be 2x and so on...

We do something like this for all our ios and Android skins.  As a sample,
take a look at the RadioButtonSkin class for iOS7:

First, we define variables like offsetX, offsetY, width, height etc.

Then, we set these values for each DPI value:

Then, we have only one draw routine that simply uses these variables to
draw the objects on the screen:

This way your layout will look perfect in all supported DPIs.  Hope you can
do something similar to this in your code.
