Android RelativeLayout Background Color
For a long time I am reading posts from stackoverflow because they are very helpful and google seems to think that also. Since yesterday I have a problem with a row in a ListView in Android. I want to show an image and the area between the image and the bottom of the element should be filled with a grey color. <RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:orientation="vertical" > <RelativeLayout android:id="#+id/ConversationsBadgeLayout" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:background="#c0c0c0" android:orientation="vertical" > <QuickContactBadge android:id="#+id/ConversationsBadge" android:layout_width="60dp" android:layout_height="60dp" android:layout_alignParentLeft="true" android:layout_alignParentTop="true" /> </RelativeLayout> <!-- ... A LinearLayout with TextViews, shouldn't be interesting for this ... --> </RelativeLayout> My Problem ist that the it seems that the inner layout only wraps the content but doesn't fill_parent. When I set for example 100dp it works but that is not what i want. It would be nice if you could help me with that. I tried much workarround like using LinearLayouts and TextViews but nothing worked.
You can set the background color to the ListView itself, then everything in it will have the background you want. BTW, I recommend using LinearLayout instead of RelativeLayout in your case.
The layout file should contain exactly one outermost element and it should have both android:layout_width="match_parent" and android:layout_height="match_parent" Your RelativeLayout has android:layout_height="wrap_content"
i think you can use you can take background color in another xml file and put in drawable folder and also using Linear Layout is very useful to your problem
