Android: how to make it no space between 2 button in a horizontal linearlayout

I just found I cannot remove the space between 2 buttons even if I set the

layout_marginRight
and
layout_marginLeft
as below. But it make sense if I set the space larger such as 10 dp.
Any way to solve it?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:orientation="horizontal" android:padding="0dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:gravity="fill_horizontal" android:layout_margin="0dp">
<Button android:id="@+id/LocationTitleButton"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginRight="0dp"
android:layout_gravity="center_vertical"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:ellipsize="end"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:scrollHorizontally="true"
android:singleLine="true"
android:text="Add location"
android:textStyle="bold" />
<Button android:textColor="#FF000000"
android:layout_weight="0"
android:id="@+id/AddLocationButton"
android:text="Search"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:layout_gravity="center_vertical"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginLeft="0dp" />
</LinearLayout>

Answer

Just set the android:layout_marginRight of the first button to "-8dip" or even more. Than the space between the two buttons will get smaller.
