Layout issues

Hi everyone, i need a little help here.

My issue is that I have a layout that requires 5 buttons on the side that will be set to which values to look at. I have gotten the 5 buttons to align up and down just like I want, and have a new linear layout to the right with a text view that will be redrawn many times to show data. The problem is that every redraw of the text view creates 5 buttons inside of it....

Note, i have also tried this with tablelayout

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<LinearLayout xmlns:android=""
android:layout_width="fill_parent" androidrientation="horizontal" android:baselineAligned="false" android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<LinearLayout android:id="@+id/linearLayout1" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:layout_width="wrap_content" androidrientation="vertical">
<Button android:text="Button" android:id="@+id/button1" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"></Button>
<Button android:text="Button" android:id="@+id/button2" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"></Button>
<Button android:text="Button" android:id="@+id/button3" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"></Button>
<Button android:text="Button" android:id="@+id/button4" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"></Button>
<TextView android:text="TextView" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:id="@+id/job_text"></TextView>

Hi, John.
Can you post a snapshot of what you exactly want. I feel that there is everything okay with Layout XML.
The problem is that every redraw of the text view creates 5 buttons inside of it....

I didn't understand what does it mean ?

Are you using an Adapter? Have you implemented Adapter.getView()? If so, what is the code in that method?

I agree. Here's the link:
