When i create AVD through Android plugin with target set to 3.2 , i face two irritating diffculties, please give me hand to come out of this heck

1. AVD fills the whole screen and i want it to simulate phone not Tablet.
2. There are no Keyborad buttons which are availaible in old AVD's , i mean those created with target 2.2 or so.

Well when you launch emulator, it will have a option of scaling of screen size with a check box.Just tick mark it and enable the option set the desirable screen size .

Thanks Hardik, but that option did not worked for me , finally with hit and trial , i got the solution and wanted to share for those having the same problem.

I changed option under "Skin"-->"Built-in" to HVGA. Although i dont know what does it mean and y it solved my problem :-)

as per my understanding, android 3.x is specifically for tablets, that is why it covers the whole screen. But you can still use function keys to move back and forth, plus the desktop keyboard to do the typing.

Hi Sahil,

Selecting and HVGA is not the solution HVGA,QVGA,WVGA are the different resolution that android devices are having.Tablets are of High Resolution and displaying HD videos too. My option should work in general. I dont know why it is not working in your case
