I've managed to get Eclipse up and running to work with the CyanogenMod 7 source.I want to make some changes in layout of system apps such as dialer app , mms app.
One last point I'm stuck on is using Eclipse to edit Android layout resource XMLs. Building the entire platform only to check if a widget is in the right place is a great drain of time, and it sounds reasonable that ADT's layout editor should work.But , the android layout editor doesn't show the layout.
It's worth mentioning that the project I'm editing is a Java project and not an Android project (well, it's the Android sources itself so does not make sense for Eclipse to treat it like an Android app).
Has anyone succeeded in getting the layout editor up and running in the platform environment?
