Analyzing and implementing Android App development tools aids the user in understanding the platform in a very less time while developing the boilerplate code along with resolving the issues again and again. Following are the few lucrative tools that are widely popular among Android developers with which one must get familiar in order to make the workflow efficient and solving the new problems.

Top Android Development Tools:

Extracting Style from Existing XML Element:

In case, you are equipped with visual parameters that which you have recently used including drop shadow, header color and text style, then it will be the best thing to eliminate the redundancy by developing a style that can encapsulate all such parameters. However, the tools required by developers makes it easy to make all the things correct. Just set the cursor on the view element to invoke the quick assistance using CMD 1.

The extracted style will be definitely allowed to get placed within style.xml file and additionally, the tool will look for the replacement of other instances of the similar style parameters. You can easily track out that quick assistance can bring up many amazing tools features besides extracting the styles.

Quick Assistant Shortcut:

Being a developer, you might be familiar of the CMD-1 keyboard shortcut. It aids the user to pull-up the quick-fix especially when you are using the code editor. Do you know that one can complete everything automatically in other places? Just assume that you can turn the Java String into the XML string resource. You will not only raise the quick assistant Java Editor, but is also highly imperative within the XML editor.

Manifest Editor:

While the Android development process is taking place, there are new activity classes that are required for creating quite regularly. The Manifest Editor has changed this to the next time which is essential for creating the new activity in the class. You need not to employ the Eclipse new class wizards. Just visit the tab; Application, of the manifest editor. You will see the entire list of the application nodes at the bottom of the page which usually appears at Android Application Development India. Just hit Add and select activity. The new activity node will not have any name and when it will be selected, the attributes for the activity pane will show up at the right side.

Hit the hyperlink; Name and it will open at a New Java Class dialog. This activity already got selected as the super class. In case, you always remember to develop a new Activity in such a way, it is not only faster; instead it will also never run the problem where you need to declare the activity at the manifest. It will also get active when any spell activity package is named incorrectly.

islnEditMode() Check:

After developing a custom view of the View group and inserting it within the layout XML file; the Android layout editor often encounters the difficulty to render the new view. There might be one problem that all the custom view methods or classes available can only run on the devices, but not being rendered within the editor. Within the following snippet, a custom view can be employed by Android Application Developer and the isInEditMode in order to determine whether it needs to be rendered inside the editor and if so, it loads the test data instead of real data.
