Hello. I Use shared preferences in order to have credentials stored inside the account manager,
Therefore I had to implement AccountManager, AccountActivity, etc. It all works. And I can add an account.
However, the screen looks horrible, and not like in the designer. ( I do not use PreferenceScreen/View type, instead I do it by myself, I save the SharedPrefs manually, I read them in the app manually and I read and assign them manually , if I would like to inspect/change the created account.

Take a look, what it looks like inside designer:

And now how it looks during runtime:

Also, I cannot change the account once created, my app cashes.
I need to remove it, and add it again, resulting in the values already being filled ( meaning, though the account is removed, the values of the shared prefs still reside, and because I manually assign them each time, the account details are filled).
I need a good example for AccountManager to use an Account with customized credentials.
Does anybody know some good ones ?
I also would provide my code here, if anybody would like to see it. THX in advandce.

try opening your layout xml using Android Studio, it gives quite an accurate rendition of what will appear.
