Problems with <include> on a Relative Layout, views always at Top

I have a few layouts where I want to

inlcude/>
a bottom bar that contains two buttons. Pretty simple huh? Well, I am having issues getting this acomplished as the buttons are being set to the top of the View regardless of the parameters I set for it.

Here's how it currently looks.

Here's the actual merge code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<merge xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:orientation="vertical" >

<View
android:id="@+id/divider"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="1dp"
android:background="?android:attr/dividerHorizontal" />

<LinearLayout
android:id="@+id/button_container"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:divider="?android:attr/dividerVertical"
android:orientation="horizontal"
android:showDividers="middle" >

<Button
android:id="@+id/left_button"
style="?android:attr/borderlessButtonStyle"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:text="@string/cancel" />

<Button
android:id="@+id/right_button"
style="?android:attr/borderlessButtonStyle"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:text="@string/complete" />
</LinearLayout>




Here's one of the layouts that includes it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/RelativeLayout1"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
>

<TextView
android:id="@+id/register_title_two"
style="?android:attr/listSeparatorTextViewStyle"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
android:layout_margin="8dp"
android:padding="8dp"
android:text="@string/i_want_to"
android:textColor="@android:color/holo_blue_dark" />

<RadioGroup
android:id="@+id/extend_delete_alert_group"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
android:layout_below="@+id/register_title_two" >

<RadioButton
android:id="@+id/delete_alerts"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:minHeight="32dp"
android:padding="8dp"
android:text="@string/delete_alerts"
android:textSize="14sp" />

<RadioButton
android:id="@+id/extend_alerts"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:minHeight="32dp"
android:padding="8dp"
android:text="@string/extend_alerts"
android:textSize="14sp" />
</RadioGroup>

<include
android:id="@+id/include1"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
layout="@layout/two_button_bar" />




I've read a few answers around and they all point to setting both the
include>
and
merge>
to
wrap_content
for height and width, but that is how I already had it, and it's still a no-go.

Any ideas?

Answer

<include /> is really just cut & paste and <merge /> means join the RelativeLayout. So you need to give these elements RelativeLayout rules, try adding:

android:layout_above="@+id/button_container"

To the divider View. And add:

android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"

To the LinearLayout.
