    I was trying to implement AdMob in one of my apps. I have the Ad unit name, and the Ad unit ID already.

    I've implemented the code given in this forum, using the AdMob lib available for download. As for the dependecy libs, I've downloaded the Google Play services and repository.

    So the code goes something like this:

    Dim Adview1 As AdView

        Adview1.Initialize2("Adunitname""adunitid", Adview1.SIZE_SMART_BANNER)
    Dim height As Int
    If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize < 6 Then
        If 100%x > 100%y Then height = 32dip Else height = 50dip
        height = 90dip
    End If
    Activity.AddView(Adview1, 0dip100%y - height, 100%x, height)
    'End AdMob
    The problem is that nothing is showing up... I get no errors - apparently - but no ad appears.

    Can someone help me out? Maybe I'm missing a lib - but an error would be expected...

    Kind regards,

    I would recommend you use the "SIZE_BANNER" using the Smart banner takes too much real estate and you have to get the EXACT size otherwise the ads won't show.

    Well, the problem was residing in the API Android level of B4A - I was using the standard 8 as the manual says. I just updated to 15.

    I was expecting that the configuration was simplier; but we must really follow all the steps in the tutorial of the AdMob lib described in this forum here.

    Problem solved...

    Kind regards,
