How to change the divider color in the listview?

I need to change the divider color in the listview. The code I am using to accomplish this is quoted below:

<ListView
android:id="@+id/restaurant_list_widget"
android:layout_width="1px"
android:layout_height="1px"
android:layout_weight="1" android:background="@drawable/list"
android:divider="#FFFFFF"
android:dividerHeight="4px">
</ListView>


I still get a black 1px wide divider. What am I doing wrong?

Update: ListItem

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:padding="5dp"
android:background="@color/list_background">
<TextView
android:id="@+id/restaurant_list_item_name"
android:layout_marginBottom="4dp"
android:textStyle="bold"
android:textSize="15dp"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:textColor="#fff"
android:text="Restaurant Name Goes Here"></TextView>
<TextView
android:id="@+id/restaurant_list_item_detail"
android:textSize="10dp"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"></TextView>
</LinearLayout>

Answer

I have tried it out with:

 <ListView 
    android:id="@+id/ListView01" 
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:divider="@color/redBackground"
    android:dividerHeight="1dip">
 </ListView>

and color value is inside colors.xml:

<color name="redBackground">#C60202</color>

And its working fine and displaying Divider color as red with 1dip height.

Update:

Just check your listview layout, you have mentioned 1px for layout_width and layout_height and you are setting 4px for the dividerHeight.
