    Hi all, i have this problem. Why beetwen GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize and ActivitySize i have different Result ??

    This is code in Activity_create
    Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    ' < 4.5
    If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize < 4.5 Then
        Label2.Text = 
    "ApproximateScreenSize: " & GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize
    ' > 4.5 e < 8
    Else If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize > 4.5 AND GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize < 8 Then
        Label2.Text = 
    "ApproximateScreenSize: " & GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize
    'Tablet > 8
    Else If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize > 8 Then
        Label2.Text = 
    "ApproximateScreenSize: " &  GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize
    End If
    End Sub
    This is code in Design Script:

    'All variants script
    Label1.Text = 
    "ActivitySize: " & ActivitySize
    The result is:
    GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize = 3.60
    ActivitySize = 3.23


    Any idea ??

    ApproximateScreenSize is the size of the whole screen. ActivitySize is the size of the activity (without the top and bottom bars).

    Erel, please clarify. What does the number mean?
    a) Is it the horizontal Size? Vertical Size? Diagonal? Area?
    b) Inches or Centimeters?

    Thank you so much! :)

    Is there a way to know the physical horizontal and vertical sizes, or at least, the screen's aspect ratio?
