Android: Align button to bottom-right of screen using FrameLayout?


Question

I am trying to put the zoom controls of the map on the bottom right corner of screen. I could do it with RelativeLayout using both alignParentBottom="true" and alignParentRight="true", but with Framelayout I did not find any such attributes. How do I align it to the bottom-right of screen?

Actually it's possible, despite what's being said in other answers. If you have a FrameLayout, and want to position a child item to the bottom, you can use android:layout_gravity="bottom" and that is going to align that child to the bottom of the FrameLayout.

I know it works because I'm using it. I know is late, but it might come handy to others since this ranks in the top positions on google

I also ran into this situation and figured out how to do it using FrameLayout. The following output is produced by the code given below.

Some right-bottom aligned text showing up over an image using FrameLayout.

              <FrameLayout
                    android:layout_width="match_parent"
                    android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

                    <ImageView
                        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                        android:src="@drawable/contactbook_icon"
                        android:layout_gravity="center" />

                    <TextView
                        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                        android:text="140"
                        android:textSize="12dp"
                        android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
                        android:layout_gravity="bottom|right"
                        android:layout_margin="15dp" />
                </FrameLayout>

Change the margin value to adjust the text position over the image. Removing margin might make the text to go out of the view sometimes.
