AndroidView v3.1 - Layouts with Vertical Orientation

This section provides a tutorial example on how to develop a layout resource file to display all fields in all blocks in vertical orientation.

To finish the AndroidView project, I will create a new layout resource file, which defines a top layout and three sub layouts to host detail fields that are created in AndroidView.java.

Here is my first try with .\res\layout\main.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- AndroidView_layout.xml
 - Version 3.1 - Showing blocks vertically
 - Copyright (c) 2015, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
-->
<LinearLayout
   xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:layout_width="wrap_content"
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"
   android:orientation="vertical"
   >
   <LinearLayout
      android:id="@+id/lContact"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:orientation="vertical"
   />
   <LinearLayout
      android:id="@+id/lAddress"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:orientation="vertical"
   />
   <LinearLayout
      android:id="@+id/lAction"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:orientation="vertical"
   />
</LinearLayout>

Build, install and run the application again on the emulator. My form shows up on the screen:

What do you think about this layout? I don't like it. See next tutorial for my second try.
