In Android, one can draw a line using shape or View. Assuming that I am using the code below, which is better in terms of efficiency, etc if I am planning to reuse the line in other Activities? Why?

Using shape: (Will then be use as a background for a certain text.)

Using View: (Will then be placed on top of a certain text.)
Have you checked out Aspose?
