A simple button added by code certanly has its default properties.

What is its default color? More exactly, what type is it. [P.S.: StateListDrawable]

If I add a button this way and then I reset its color, it appears higher.

Is this due to the padding? Or to the corner radius?

I am really surprised.

Has no one ever allowed the user to save the color of a button in the preferences?

Probably for the button images are most used.

Certainly it is strange that no one has noticed this problem before.

Buttons are made of nine patch images. When you set the Button's Color property you remove the existing background and set a new ColorDrawable. Unlike the image which has some padding the ColorDrawable doesn't have any padding.


I think you agree that you expected a different behavior, which is the same that is obtained using the Designer.

So should I get nine patch image and restore it? Or worse, get it and then recolor it!

Maybe you can make this change in the next version of B4A.



Thanks, Erel
