Android: How to stretch an image to the screen width while maintaining aspect ratio?


Question

I want to download an image (of unknown size, but which is always roughly square) and display it so that it fills the screen horizontally, and stretches vertically to maintain the aspect ratio of the image, on any screen size. Here is my (non-working) code. It stretches the image horizontally, but not vertically, so it is squashed...

ImageView mainImageView = new ImageView(context);
    mainImageView.setImageBitmap(mainImage); //downloaded from server
    mainImageView.setScaleType(ScaleType.FIT_XY);
    //mainImageView.setAdjustViewBounds(true); 
    //with this line enabled, just scales image down
    addView(mainImageView,new LinearLayout.LayoutParams( 
            LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT));

I accomplished this with a custom view. Set layout_width="fill_parent" and layout_height="wrap_content", and point it to the appropriate drawable:

public class Banner extends View {

  private final Drawable logo;

  public Banner(Context context) {
    super(context);
    logo = context.getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.banner);
    setBackgroundDrawable(logo);
  }

  public Banner(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
    super(context, attrs);
    logo = context.getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.banner);
    setBackgroundDrawable(logo);
  }

  public Banner(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) {
    super(context, attrs, defStyle);
    logo = context.getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.banner);
    setBackgroundDrawable(logo);
  }

  @Override protected void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec,
      int heightMeasureSpec) {
    int width = MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec);
    int height = width * logo.getIntrinsicHeight() / logo.getIntrinsicWidth();
    setMeasuredDimension(width, height);
  }
}

In the end, I generated the dimensions manually, which works great:

DisplayMetrics dm = new DisplayMetrics();
context.getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(dm);
int width = dm.widthPixels;
int height = width * mainImage.getHeight() / mainImage.getWidth(); //mainImage is the Bitmap I'm drawing
addView(mainImageView,new LinearLayout.LayoutParams( 
        width, height));
