How to use ScrollView in Android?

I have an XML layout file, but the text is more than fits into the screen size. What do I need to do in order to make a

ScrollView
?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<TableLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"

Answer

Just make the top-level layout a ScrollView:

<ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fillViewport="true">

    <TableLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:stretchColumns="1">

        <!-- everything you already have -->

    </TableLayout>
</ScrollView>
