How to make a full screen webview

How to make the webview of an android application full screen. I have added the webview on a layout xml file but it doesn't stretches out till the edges of the layout, there is some type of margin along all the side of the webview. I am also adding an image to give you guys a hint on what actually it is looking like.

What i am talking about is the space all around the webview, not the notification bar or the title bar

Here's the layout code:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
tools:context=".WebView" >

<TextView
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
android:layout_centerVertical="true"
android:text="Shake / Tilt Your Phone To Get Accelerometer Motion Alerts" />

<WebView
android:id="@+id/webview"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
android:layout_alignParentTop="true" />

</RelativeLayout>

Answer

From above code remove padding tags -

android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"

It will do the job and also be sure to remove the HTML's margins/padding which you are rendering into the WebView that might contain those tags which leaves some space.
