Android - Image button size

My imagebutton code wont respond to "fill_parent" and "wrap_content".
Instead, it just shows the middle of the image (because it is a pretty big image).
I tried setting specific values for the image but it still didn't work! Can somebody help me?

My button.xml in the res/drawable folder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">\
<item android:state_pressed="true"
android:drawable="@drawable/largishbutton" /> <!-- pressed -->
<item android:state_focused="true"
android:drawable="@drawable/largerbutton2" /> <!-- focused -->
<item android:drawable="@drawable/largerbutton" /> <!-- default -->

My main.xml in the res/layout folder:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

I tried using a LinearLayout, but the app wouldnt run, and I tried replacing the imagebutton with an imageview, but then the button didn't work.

If your image is bigger than your button, you will need to use something like android:scaleType or setMaxHeight() to have it resize to fit.

Also, I recommend that you have all images in your <selector> be the same size, at least until you get things working the way you wish.
