Get screen width and height in Android


Question

How can I get the screen width and height and use this value in:

@Override protected void onMeasure(int widthSpecId, int heightSpecId) {
    Log.e(TAG, "onMeasure" + widthSpecId);
    setMeasuredDimension(SCREEN_WIDTH, SCREEN_HEIGHT - 
        game.findViewById(R.id.flag).getHeight());
}

Accepted Answer

Using this code, you can get the runtime display's width & height:

DisplayMetrics displayMetrics = new DisplayMetrics();
getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(displayMetrics);
int height = displayMetrics.heightPixels;
int width = displayMetrics.widthPixels;

In a view you need to do something like this:

((Activity) getContext()).getWindowManager()
                         .getDefaultDisplay()
                         .getMetrics(displayMetrics);

In some scenarios, where devices have a navigation bar, you have to check at runtime:

public boolean showNavigationBar(Resources resources)
{
    int id = resources.getIdentifier("config_showNavigationBar", "bool", "android");
    return id > 0 && resources.getBoolean(id);
}

If the device has a navigation bar, then count its height:

private int getNavigationBarHeight() {
    if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.JELLY_BEAN_MR1) {
        DisplayMetrics metrics = new DisplayMetrics();
        getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(metrics);
        int usableHeight = metrics.heightPixels;
        getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getRealMetrics(metrics);
        int realHeight = metrics.heightPixels;
        if (realHeight > usableHeight)
            return realHeight - usableHeight;
        else
            return 0;
    }
    return 0;
}

So the final height of the device is:

int height = displayMetrics.heightPixels + getNavigationBarHeight();

There is a very simple answer and without pass context

public static int getScreenWidth() {
    return Resources.getSystem().getDisplayMetrics().widthPixels;
}

public static int getScreenHeight() {
    return Resources.getSystem().getDisplayMetrics().heightPixels;
}

Note: if you want the height include navigation bar, use method below

WindowManager windowManager =
        (WindowManager) BaseApplication.getApplication().getSystemService(Context.WINDOW_SERVICE);
    final Display display = windowManager.getDefaultDisplay();
    Point outPoint = new Point();
    if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= 19) {
        // include navigation bar
        display.getRealSize(outPoint);
    } else {
        // exclude navigation bar
        display.getSize(outPoint);
    }
    if (outPoint.y > outPoint.x) {
        mRealSizeHeight = outPoint.y;
        mRealSizeWidth = outPoint.x;
    } else {
        mRealSizeHeight = outPoint.x;
        mRealSizeWidth = outPoint.y;
    }
