comment Spinner in Android Layout has odd shadow, seems to overlap other components
I must have been looking at quite an old tutorial, still quite highly ranked on Google so now use ArrayAdapter.createFromResource(). Regarding the shadow issue, I've found it, it was what you said, I had a theme being used by the app, which I had a elevation set which for some reason only seemed to affect the spinner. I've removed this and its showing as expected now. Thanks for your help

comment Spinner in Android Layout has odd shadow, seems to overlap other components
@CommonsWare I'm not sure what you mean I am using spinners. android:entries is what I've seen from all of the guides, and even if I don't do this and manually create the adapter and populate from a database (therefore not needing the entries) it still has the same style

comment Spinner in Android Layout has odd shadow, seems to overlap other components
As you can see from the XML, I am not dynamically populating the spinners, instead I have a string array which is creating the entries for the spinner. I am not creating my own adapter its all being done through the XML
