Fixed aspect ratio View

How would I go implementing a fixed aspect ratio

View
? I'd like to have items with 1:1 aspect ratio in a
GridView
. I think it's better to subclass the children than the
GridView
?

EDIT: I assume this needs to be done programmatically, that's no problem. Also, I don't want to limit the size, only the aspect ratio.

Answer

I implemented FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout, so I can reuse it and have any hosted view be with fixed aspect ratio:

public class FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout extends FrameLayout
{
    private int mAspectRatioWidth;
    private int mAspectRatioHeight;

    public FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout(Context context)
    {
        super(context);
    }

    public FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout(Context context, AttributeSet attrs)
    {
        super(context, attrs);

        Init(context, attrs);
    }

    public FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle)
    {
        super(context, attrs, defStyle);

        Init(context, attrs);
    }

    private void Init(Context context, AttributeSet attrs)
    {
        TypedArray a = context.obtainStyledAttributes(attrs, R.styleable.FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout);

        mAspectRatioWidth = a.getInt(R.styleable.FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout_aspectRatioWidth, 4);
        mAspectRatioHeight = a.getInt(R.styleable.FixedAspectRatioFrameLayout_aspectRatioHeight, 3);

        a.recycle();
    }
    // **overrides**

    @Override protected void onMeasure (int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec)
    {
        int originalWidth = MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec);

        int originalHeight = MeasureSpec.getSize(heightMeasureSpec);

        int calculatedHeight = originalWidth * mAspectRatioHeight / mAspectRatioWidth;

        int finalWidth, finalHeight;

        if (calculatedHeight > originalHeight)
        {
            finalWidth = originalHeight * mAspectRatioWidth / mAspectRatioHeight; 
            finalHeight = originalHeight;
        }
        else
        {
            finalWidth = originalWidth;
            finalHeight = calculatedHeight;
        }

        super.onMeasure(
                MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(finalWidth, MeasureSpec.EXACTLY), 
                MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(finalHeight, MeasureSpec.EXACTLY));
    }
}
