Android Question

adMob | Smart banner at bottom?

The idea is to put the admob banner at the bottom of the screen I tried with

android:layout_alignParentBottom = "true"
but the banner stand in the middle of the place that it occupies. Currently looks like this: pic1 And I want to look like this: pic2

My code:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:ads="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:background="@color/background"
android:orientation="vertical"
tools:context="eu.gabrielatanasov.demoViewer.Home_activity" >

<LinearLayout
android:id="@+id/homeContentLayout"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin" >


App stuff here

</LinearLayout>
<com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
android:id="@+id/adView"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
android:layout_below="@id/homeContentLayout"
ads:adSize="SMART_BANNER"
ads:adUnitId="@string/adMob_ID" >
</com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView>

</RelativeLayout>

I modified your layout a little bit, check this out:

<RelativeLayout
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:orientation="horizontal">
    <LinearLayout
            android:id="@+id/homeContentLayout"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:orientation="vertical"
            android:layout_above="@+id/adView">
    </LinearLayout>
    <com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView
            android:id="@+id/adView"
            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
            android:layout_alignWithParentIfMissing="true"
            ads:adSize="SMART_BANNER"
            ads:adUnitId="admobid">
    </com.google.android.gms.ads.AdView>

</RelativeLayout>
