Hi All,

How can I cause to the LinearLayout to be placed in the middle of the screen and not at the top ?

Thanks

try android:gravity="center_vertical" on the LinearLayout...

[Edit] Since your buttons don't fill up the horizontal space, you'll need to align to center both vertically and horizontally. Try this: android:gravity="center|center_vertical"
