Bottom Toolbar with 3 images

I have a bottom layout with three images. I want them to be equal distributed. To do this,I use the

layout_weight
xml property. But the visual representation of them is awful.

bottom layout

The images' dimension is 32*32.

And my layout code for this particular toolbar is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/toolbar_bottom"
xmlns:appo="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:minHeight="50dp"
android:background="#ffff8c0e"
appo:theme="@style/ToolbarTheme"
android:minWidth="50dp"
android:elevation="10dp"
>
<LinearLayout
android:id="@+id/toolbarmenucontainer"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:weightSum="3"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:orientation="horizontal" >

<ImageView
android:layout_width="0dp"
android:id="@+id/camera_image"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:clickable="true"

android:scaleType="fitXY"
android:src="@drawable/camera_icon"
/>

<ImageView
android:id="@+id/news_image"
android:layout_width="0dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"

android:clickable="true"
android:scaleType="fitXY"
android:layout_weight = "1"
android:src="@drawable/new_icon"
android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" />
<ImageView
android:id="@+id/facebook_image"
android:layout_width="0dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"

android:clickable="true"
android:scaleType="fitXY"
android:src="@drawable/facebooc_image"
/>
</LinearLayout>




How can I make them look good?
Thanks,

Answer

wrap ImageView in another layout say RelativeLayout.

i.e do something like this.

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:appo="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:id="@+id/toolbar_bottom"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:background="#ffff8c0e"
    android:elevation="10dp"
    android:minHeight="50dp"
    android:minWidth="50dp"
    appo:theme="@style/ToolbarTheme" >

    <LinearLayout
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:id="@+id/toolbarmenucontainer"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:orientation="horizontal"
        android:weightSum="3" >

        <RelativeLayout
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_weight="1" >

            <ImageView
                android:id="@+id/camera_image"
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:layout_centerInParent="true"
                android:clickable="true"
                android:scaleType="fitXY"
                android:src="@drawable/camera_icon" />
        </RelativeLayout>

        <RelativeLayout
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_weight="1" >

            <ImageView
                android:id="@+id/news_image"
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
                android:layout_centerInParent="true"
                android:clickable="true"
                android:scaleType="fitXY"
                android:src="@drawable/new_icon" />
        </RelativeLayout>

        <RelativeLayout
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_weight="1" >

            <ImageView
                android:id="@+id/facebook_image"
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:layout_centerInParent="true"
                android:clickable="true"
                android:scaleType="fitXY"
                android:src="@drawable/facebooc_image" />
        </RelativeLayout>
    </LinearLayout>
</android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar>

Hope this will help.
