Change android listview element height

Problem: I want to reduce row height of a single list view item. I don't know exactly it is possible or not.

Here is the codes I used

  android:layout_y="22dp" >

java code

ListView list = (ListView)findViewById(;

ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1,arrayTest);

Check this:

  1. Customizing Android ListView Items with Custom ArrayAdapter
  2. Android ListView and ListActivity

If you just want to change the width of the whole width then just change the value for


to whatever you want for instance
