AndroidApps/ApplicationsMobile Development

This example demonstrates how do I get android device screen height, width.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   android:orientation="vertical"
   android:gravity="center_horizontal"
   android:layout_marginTop="30dp"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/getScreenHeight"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_marginTop="20sp"
      android:textSize="16sp"
      android:textStyle="bold" />
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/getScreenWidth"
      android:layout_marginTop="10dp"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:textSize="16sp"
      android:textStyle="bold" />
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/getScreenInches"
      android:layout_marginTop="10dp"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:textSize="16sp"
      android:textStyle="bold" />
</LinearLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.util.DisplayMetrics;
import android.widget.TextView;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   TextView height, width, inches;
   DisplayMetrics displayMetrics;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      height = findViewById(R.id.getScreenHeight);
      width = findViewById(R.id.getScreenWidth);
      inches = findViewById(R.id.getScreenInches);
      displayMetrics = new DisplayMetrics();
      getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(displayMetrics);
      int screenHeight = displayMetrics.heightPixels;
      int screenWidth = displayMetrics.widthPixels;
      double y = Math.pow(screenHeight /displayMetrics.xdpi, 2);
      double x = Math.pow(screenWidth /displayMetrics.xdpi, 2);
      double screenInches = Math.sqrt(x + y);
      screenInches = (double) Math.round(screenInches *10)/10;
      height.setText("Screen Height: " + screenHeight);
      width.setText("Screen Height: " + screenWidth);
      inches.setText("Screen Inches: " + screenInches);
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="app.com.sample">
   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run Play Icon icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –
