Percentage Based Dimensions and Margins with the Percent Support Library
Pro-tip by +Joanna Smith

There are a lot of options to help you position your Views just right. But adding a LinearLayout to your beautiful RelativeLayout just to gain access to layout_weight for that perfect positioning is ridiculous. And we hear you on that. Which is why Android introduced the new Percent Support Library ( Its PercentFrameLayout and PercentRelativeLayout provide an easy way to specify View dimensions and margins in terms of a percentage of the overall size.

That means if you want a view to take up exactly 50% of the available width and height, you’d use a layout such as
  app:layout_heightPercent="50%" />
  app:layout_marginEndPercent=”25%” />

Note that we use layout_marginStartPercent/EndPercent to set a margin based on a percentage of the total width.

Fun fact: if the percentage you set is more of a guideline than hard limit, you can also set layout_width/height=”wrap_content” in addition to layout_widthPercent/heightPercent and Views larger than the allowed percentage value will instead be resized using wrap_content rules.

So check out the Percent library today and use this efficient layout to #BuildBetterApps
