How to show a title to a ListView

Hello,

I'm trying to show a TextView in the top of a screen and, below the TextView, I want to show a ListView.

My layout is:


The only view that is being shown is the TextView. The ListView does not appear.

If I remove the TextView entry from the XML, the ListView appears.

Does anyone have an ideia of what I can do to show the TextView and the ListView?

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards

Just add this line in LinearLayout for orientation



After adding this line ListView will show along with TextView

It worked!

Thanks a lot.

I'm just wondering why it worked - I mean: the vertical orientation is the "default" - why did I have to declare it explicity to work?

Thanks in advance,
Best Regards.

Default orientation is horizontal.
