So I had a look around for a backwards compatible GridLayout for Android only to find that it’s hidden in the android sdk extras. (As of ACL v7 ADT17)
I’m wondering if it’s not been made public yet due to it not being tested, or maybe that it only works with eclair onwards (api 7).. But anyway.
It’s under your Android sdk path:
You will need to import this as a library project as the readme suggests. Sorted.
Advantage of using this library is that ADT editor detects its included in your project and the layout editor will auto fill name space and reference the support lib.
Any questions feel free to ask.
