- In Titanium Studio, run your application once in the emulator that you want to use so that it will create a virtual device.
- Close the emulator.
- Launch the Android AVD Manager. (It is located in here: ‘$ANDROID_SDK/tools/android’ or you can refer to this tutorial)
- Select the emulator that was just created.
- Click the ‘Start’ button. It opens the ‘Launch Options’ dialog.
- Check the ‘Scale display to real size’ checkbox. It enables the ‘Screen Size’ and ‘Monitor dpi’ options in the middle.
- Click the ‘?’ button right to the ‘Monitor dpi’ field. It pops up the ‘Monitor Density’ dialog.
- Set your monitor’s screen size and current resolution. Then click ‘OK’ button.
- Set the ‘Screen Size (in):’ field to the size you want.
- Launch the emulator from the AVD Manager.
- Go back to Titanium Studio and ‘Launch’ your app again. It will load into the running emulator.
Method TwoOnce the emulator is launched, connect to you device using the *telnet* command. You will need the name and port of your emulator. You can get this information using the *adb devices* command.
$ adb devices List of devices attached emulator-5560 device $ telnet localhost 5560 Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'.
