I want to build a ui layout that have a full screen surface view and some buttons at the bottom of it.
All I managed to do is is to put a relative layout below a surface view and the buttons inside the relative view.
this way they are at the bottom, but I lost a portion of the screen area.
Also, I tried to put use a RelativeView contains the SurfaceView followd by the buttons. this way the surface fill the screen, but the buttons are on top of the screen.
I didn't manage to move them down using android:gravity="bottom".
I would try something like this, a LinearLayout with the SurfaceView (height: 0dp and weight: 1 to give it all space that's left over)
and another LinearLayout which has the buttons who each have a width: 0dp and a weight: 1 so they are equally divided.
