Android Device Display Metrics

From WikiOD

Get the screens pixel dimensions[edit | edit source]

To retreive the screens width and height in pixels, we can make use of the WindowManagers display metrics.

// Get display metrics
DisplayMetrics metrics = new DisplayMetrics();
context.getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(metrics);

These DisplayMetrics hold a series of information about the devices screen, like its density or size:

// Get width and height in pixel
Integer heightPixels = metrics.heightPixels;
Integer widthPixels = metrics.widthPixels;

Get screen density[edit | edit source]

To get the screens density, we also can make use of the Windowmanagers DisplayMetrics. This is a quick example:

// Get density in dpi
DisplayMetrics metrics = new DisplayMetrics();
context.getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(metrics);
int densityInDpi =  metrics.densityDpi;

Formula px to dp, dp to px conversation[edit | edit source]

DP to Pixel:

private int dpToPx(int dp)
{
    return (int) (dp * Resources.getSystem().getDisplayMetrics().density);
}

Pixel to DP:

private int pxToDp(int px)
{
    return (int) (px / Resources.getSystem().getDisplayMetrics().density);
}
