Thank you Kumar.
I will corss check that property of Scaletype.
Actually I dont have problem with the emulator. Things work very fine
with the different type of emulator (small, medium, large). I have
ported android to fsl-imx51 board which inturn is connected to a 17"
monitor. It is, with this monitor where I see that images are not
scaled to fit the screen size. As i said earlier, android is
considering the images present in the folder mdpi for this display.
Which means that this display(17" monitor) is registering itself as
Now, I wonder why is this display (17" monitor) registering as
"medium". Further the images in the folder mdpi should have been
scaled to fit the screen which actually is not happening.
