Any suggestions on doing that programmatically? I could use an AbsoluteLayout? But I'd have to provide a fixed number for the width.

I'd like to be able to provide "fill_parent" for width and "1px" for the height.

Just use a View, give it a fixed height with android:layout_height and a background color with android:background. Like this for instance:

<View android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="2dip" android:background="#FF00FF00" />

I'm looking for a component I can add to my layouts that's just a straight horizontal or vertical rule that I can choose the color


Currently, I have a custom view that just draws a line but is there anything in Android that I can use?
