Hello,

I have modified the main.xml to include an ImageView and two text views-one each on top and bottom of the ImageView. I set the image and the text to be displayed. Now I want to add another vertical bar to the left or right of this setup (one image view and two text views) and I want to programmatically increase or decrease the height of this vertical bar. I tried using a TextView and set it's height with TextView.setHeight(int variable) but this does not work and I get an error.

Please tell me if my approach is right (I guess it is not) or kindly inform me of any better way of doing this.

Cheers,
Madhu

main.xml
