Parameters
lp LayoutParams to query
Returns
int the margin along the starting edge in pixels

public static boolean isMarginRelative (ViewGroup.MarginLayoutParams lp)

Check if margins are relative.

Parameters
lp
Returns
boolean true if either marginStart or marginEnd has been set.

public static void resolveLayoutDirection (ViewGroup.MarginLayoutParams lp, int layoutDirection)

This will be called by requestLayout(). Left and Right margins may be overridden depending on layout direction.

Parameters
lp
layoutDirection
