==== Tutorial on RapidDroidScript (a layout tool)====

Download the tool from
The tool can help you generate code for your layout with your controls (text, images, text input, etc).
The code generated can be copied to the clipboard, then pasted into your app/project.

Let's look at how to create a simple layout with two columns side-by-side.
In the first column we will have a button, and an image (one-above-the-other).
In the second column we will have a text field, and a text input field (one-above-the-other).

First create a layout (container) where it's contents are side-by-side (horizontal).
Main Page > Main Layout > Add > Groups > Layout > Name:SideBySide > Options:Horizontal > Create

Now create 2 layouts (containers) where their contents will be arranged one-above-the-other (vertical).
Main Page > SideBySide > Add > Groups > Layout > Name:Left > Options:Vertical > Create
Main Page > SideBySide > Add > Groups > Layout > Name:Right > Options:Vertical > Create

Add controls to the left column
Main Page > Left > Add > Controls > Button > Text: Hello > Create
Main Page > Left > Add > Controls > Image > Create

Add controls to the right column
Main Page > Right > Add > Controls > Text > Text: Goodbye > Create
Main Page > Right > Add > Controls > TextEdit > Text: You can edit this text > Create

You should now see a preview of your layout and controls.
Touch the Code button (bottom right) to see the generated code and copy it to the clipboard.

There are many other layouts (see the Groups and Screens tabs), and controls (under the Controls tab).
There are also drop-downs for Basic/Advanced/Expert for most controls, and drop-downs for additional options.
