Why is the full screen size is smaller in app than the physical screen?

I figured it out now. This device has 1204x705 pixel screen According to AI2 screen size block. But if i make a screen with specified pictures to this size, how will it be responsive, because as my recent experiences shows, no way. At least at the current state of the AI2.
To undestand what i want.

So how can i make this responsive? Because as i see responsive only works with fill parent, but if i have fixed sizes it doesnt fit or shrink anything.
Any extension that can handle this?

Maybe This can help you
or this

I showed you the two blocks you can use.
Best to also use a timer when fetching them and setting the height and width of components.

What is wrong with using fill parent of percentage height/width blocks?

Thank you, i already figured it out how to find my screen size.
My problem is now if i design something to this size by pixel like on the photo i attached before, then i cant make it responsive.

Look the picture. The screen is not one layout.
And mostly the problem is the blocks has different wides.
No problem with the height, i can set it to percentage or fill parent. But the width. If i set all to fill parent then it will maybe responsive but shrink every blocks to the same width, no matter what picture i use for bckgndimage. If i set to automatic, then it uses the picture width but wont be responsive.

Post a (test) aia to check / reproduce this.

Hi Anke!
Here is the aia. Reptest.aia (260.6 KB)
This is looks like this on Lenovo tab M7:

I can resize the bloks in a picture editor to fill the green area but still not responsive. even i can set the height of the blocks and the arrangements to fill patent then it fills the heights but i cannot do anything to the width. Strange thing is if i set all the 4 horizontal arrangements heights to 25% even then not completely fill the height of the green area.

By the way. Dont care with the blocks area. It is full of junks from tests. I only put it together in the designer area.

As I suggested, something like this:

You may need to add a pixel or two to either the height or the width of the outer VA to be exact

This can never work, because you set backround images to each Canvas, e.g.:

and set the Wdth to Automatic.
You have to redesign it completely. Or maybe you can try / use a VerticalScrollArr.

you set backround images to each Canvas

Yes. As i said, everything has different width. And if set it to fill parent then it will distribute the widths to equal not by the pictures ratio.
By redesign you mean i have to design it in percentages? That scks. How can a mosaic composition be designed in percentages?
Anyway, thank you. I will try the scrollarrangement.

I would provide your control button array by creating an image of the Buttons you require as a single png image consisting in ALL the buttons. Each 'button' has a slightly different background color (see advice below). In your case, it would be subtle shades of charcoal gray perhaps. Place the image in a Canvas. Construct your 'button array' as described in this example Button placement(How to use Canvas screen colors to create a Q&A Quiz . You select a 'button' by using the Canvas.GetBackgroundPixelColor Block.

I think this method will work with a Responsive screen. You could try it. (your global dimmer might create an issue...provide it separately?)

I thought about sprites but didnt tested yet. Thank you Steve, i will test it if work in responsive.

Hi Zol,

What I recommended does not use ImageSprites. You might be able to do what you want using them but I think you will still run into issues using them with a Responsive screen. The recommendation is to use a single png as a Canvas background and create color controlled 'hot spots'. Try the sprites anyway. :slight_smile: Either the hot spots or sprites probably will solve your issue. Good luck.

Try this (→ HorScrollArr): Reptest2.aia (260.6 KB)

Yes sprites doesnt work either.
I see your point. Though i cant see how the hotspots will arrrange to different screensizes but i will look into your example more deeply. Thank you.

The hotspots don't arrange to diffferent screensizes but the image you place into the Canvas background should. You create the hot spots on a large image.

where each of the buttons will be a separate hotspot . You won't be able to place a slider in you global dimmer but it can link to a Slider in an arrangement.

Thank you Anke.
It is better than that i made, but still not the one i would like. On the Lenovo it is looks good but on a small screen device the image distortion is bad.

Left: → Galaxy Note8, 6.3''. Right: → Galaxy S3, 4.3''

I don't see any difference.

I meant distortion according to Lenovo, where the screen fit in original size without scrolling. If you look the pictures above the buttons width to height rate is larger.
But never mind. Maybe i will accept this distortion or i redesign by percentage.
By the way, i made some percentage test and it is wierd for me that everything is related to the full screen size. If i split the screen to pieces with layouts i still have to use the full screen size to count the objects percentage in that layout. I dont know why is it founded this way, but very very wierd.

Anyway, thank you for your help.
