How can I add separating lines between my TableRows that are created programmatically?
I have a TableLayout that is created programmatically in an Android project. I keep adding TableRows as long as there are more rows fetched from the database. Now I want to add separating lines, like a border, between the TableRows.
In my other TableLayout that I created statically from XML I used a View as a separator, style with a style.xml.
I tried adding a View to the tablelayout like so:
View v=new View(this); v.setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams( LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT)); v.setBackgroundResource(R.drawable.rowseparator_shape); tr.addView(mTvDate); tr.addView(mTvResult); tl.addView(tr); tl.addView(v);
But it only gets added once after all the collected TableRows. What would be a smart way of adding one View for each tr added? Or should I use something else alltogether?
View v = new View(this); v.setLayoutParams(new TableRow.LayoutParams(TableRow.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, 1)); v.setBackgroundColor(Color.rgb(51, 51, 51)); tr.addView(mTvDate); tr.addView(mTvResult); tl.addView(tr); tl.addView(v);
Here I'm creating a view that is one pixel high with a specific background color. This works for me.
Thanks to Madhusuthanan for this. I spent a while searching for how to do this to simply separate TextViews with a horizontal line. I was creating my view programmatically (without using a Table layout). Here is what I came up with based on the above answer:
View line = new View(this); line.setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams(LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, 1)); line.setBackgroundColor(Color.rgb(51, 51, 51)); layout.addView(line);
Simple! Hope this helps someone else!
You can use Listview that will be easiler and better than doing this.
