Android - Layout that fills the screen (using weight) and scrollable when soft keyboard is out
I need to build a layout that fills the screen. I do that using a LinearLayout with weights in their child views.
This layout is a form, so I also need it to be scrollable when the soft keyboard is out.
What happens is that the screen height is shrunk when the keyboard is out, so the views are shrunk too, crowded together. They look awful.
Do you know any way to build a form layout that fills the screen but at the same time preserves its aspect and can be scrollable when the soft keyboard is out? This is really easy in iOS but in Android... I can't think of a solution.
