What is the effective screen available (Height) for an application without removing any default bars on the top.

480 - (both bars at the top) = ?

Ran this under default emulator settings(320 x 480 HVGA):

I created an Activity that had only one custom View with Height and Width as "fill_parent". The Activity had both the default title bars;

I printed View#getHeight() and View#getWidth() inside onDraw of the View and got following values for Height and Width:
H: 430
W: 320

I get same values on Hero too. So, IMO that's the answer you want.

You're welcome!

[Glad to see that you marked this thread as resolved; not many do that. I guess, it will take some time getting used to]
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
