Posted by: admin March 10, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

How can I remove the rows separator in a ListView(if possible within the XML layout file where it’s described)?

How to&Answers:

Set the dividerHeight to zero and divider to null like this in xml:

android:dividerHeight="0dp"
android:divider="@null"

Or in java:

getListView().setDividerHeight(0);
getListView().setDivider(null);

Answer:

Simply put:

android:divider="@null"

Answer:

put below property in listview tag (in xml file)

android:divider="@null"

Answer:

You can set divider color as transparent color and divider height
in ‘ListView’ properties to remove the divider like below:

android:divider="#00000000"  
android:dividerHeight="0dp" 

Answer:

There are different ways to achieve this, but I’m not sure which one is the best (I don’t even know is there is a best way). I know at least 2 different ways to do this in a ListView:

1. Set divider to null:

1.1. Programmatically

yourListView.setDivider(null);

1.2. XML

android:divider="@null" (this goes inside your ListView element)

2. Set divider to transparent and set its height to 0 to avoid adding space between listview elements:

2.1. Programmatically:

yourListView.setDivider(new ColorDrawable(android.R.color.transparent));
yourListView.setDividerHeight(0);

2.2. XML

android:divider="@android:color/transparent"
android:dividerHeight="0dp"

Answer:

Only -1dp helps me to remove divider
(not 0, 0.0, @null or the same in code)
