|layout-xxhdpi/layout-xxlarge not supported on Android Studio|
As you can see here, section "Declaring Tablet Layouts for Android 3.2":
For the first generation of tablets running Android 3.0, the proper
way to declare tablet layouts was to put them in a directory with the
xlarge configuration qualifier (for example, res/layout-xlarge/). In
order to accommodate other types of tablets and screen sizes—in
particular, 7" tablets—Android 3.2 introduces a new way to specify
resources for more discrete screen sizes. The new technique is based
on the amount of space your layout needs (such as 600dp of width),
rather than trying to make your layout fit the generalized size groups
(such as large or xlarge).
The best you can get is:
res/layout-xlarge-land/my_layout.xml // layout for extra large in landscape

|Visual Studio 2010 XAML layout editor not WYSIWYG|
This answer is not directly an answer to your actual question, but
instead a suggestion to avoid your problem.
You will often get UI control placement problems when you use exact control
positioning with the Margin property. It is a good procedure (and in WPF
especially) to allow controls to place and/or space themselves using the
various Alignment options available. I have always managed to get the
desired layout using this method.
For example, had you used a Grid or StackPanel to arrange your controls,
you would not have come across this problem. Many WPF developers that I
know don't even bother using the designer in Visual Studio because of the
problems that you mentioned... after dragging and dropping a control and
then going to the XAML to remove unwanted values, it often works
|How can I set up custom namespaces in layout file in Android studio?|
res-auto uses the current package name, not the library package name. In
your case, it translates to net.mypackage.

name. Judging from the class name, you are using the DSLV library from
here. So, you'll want to use:

Switch to a RelativeLayout if you can, you can then define

annoying. It's easier to just place it with XML.

After some further reading and several false starts, I ended up with this,

MyAppProject/MyApp/build.gradle, not MyAppProject/build.gradle --
confusing, I know, but the former directory is projectDir in Gradle so
that's how I refer to it here). It depends on no external utilities other
than Git, which is assumed to be in the path, so it should work on any OS
(even though I used forward slashes in the paths, they get converted to
backslashes on Windows).
It could probably stand to be improved, I'm sure, as my understanding of

(though that in particular is less of a concern). I have a feeling that my

|Is it possible to test In App Billing in an Android App connected to and running from Android Studio|
Except for the static purchase test items, you are generally no longer able

Console to do so.
