I have been working on the view tutorials. I just completed the tab layout and I am wondering how to make the tabs fill the screen on my phone. There is a space on each side of the screen about 10px wide. Some tutorials this isn't there. It effects all layouts and even the title bar. I thought it had to do something with android:layout_width="match_parent" as opposed to android:layout_width="fill_parent", but I have the space either way. Thanks Gordon I just noticed that using an xml layout as apposed to creating the data in the activity seems to fix it.
