    hello everybody. I am here today to ask if anybody knows a good way to use the layouts but it looks like that when you place a grid in the FrameLayout it will only do what the grid is so it will only go down or only go right. I want a different layout. Where I can customize my own app to develop for android app. Should't they make a xml way so you just drag and drop on the layout and put it where you want it to be because theres only 3 layouts that you are stuck with and that is not a good thing for new developers to start with. I hope eclipse sees this message and thinks about making a drag and drop layout so we can easy customize.

    example: visual studio

    i do not mind resizing making texts all that stuff just drag and drop in to a area thats all I ask or if you know any good videos on how to use layouts

    There is more than just GridLayout. For example, to only go up/down or right/left, you could use LinearLayout or RelativeLayout.

    Well, you have to use SoME layout, but the exact one you should choose depends on the situation.
