Creating stretchy “9 patch” buttons in Android


Very cool button standard used in Android for creating flexible buttons – also has a little wysiwyg editor, tucked away in the SDK folder;

    I use mostly photoshop to do this type of work now,

    I hardly need to go inside the android 9-patch tool.

    I have made available 500+ free 9-patch images on my blog: http://android9patch.blogspot.com/

    Feel free to grab any of them for your commercial or free applications for the android devices.

    If you like to browse them all on your android device, you can use this app: http://market.android.com/details?id=com.android9patch.viewer

    Cheers!

    Richard.
