I am working on an Android project where a group of buttons needs to show on the bottom of every screen (activity) in the application. The group of buttons are basically a navigation bar. I want to know the best way to do this without creating new buttons for every activity. I have been around programming (C++/C#) for many years but am pretty new to Android and Java so if someone can point me in a general direction, it would be appreciated.
I bet you need to use “include” tag for xml layouts. It’s the best when you need to reuse some UI components. See http://www.curious-creature.org/2009/02/25/android-layout-trick-2-include-to-reuse/ for the examples and description.
