android listview display all available items without scroll with static header

I'm having a little difficulties while trying to get a certain layout to work: I want to have list. List does not have to be scrollable, but should be shown completely. But the page itself should be able to scroll (with the lists in it), if the total content ist higher than the screen.

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

<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/linear_layout"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:background="#ff181818"
>
<Textview android:id="@+id/my_text" text="header contents goes here" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
<Textview android:id="@+id/headertext" text="header contents goes here" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

<ListView
android:id="@+id/my_list1"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
/>
</LinearLayout>

</ScrollView>


it only uses a small part of the screen (about 2 lines per list), instead of filling the available height, and the lists themselves can be scrolled. How can I change the layout to always show the whole lists but have the screen be scrollalbe?

Answer

The solution I used is to replace ListView with LinearLayout. You can create all your items inside LinearLayout, they will all be displayed. So there's really no need to use ListView.

LinearLayout list = (LinearLayout)findViewById(R.id.list_recycled_parts);
for (int i=0; i<products.size(); i++) {
  Product product = products.get(i);
  View vi = inflater.inflate(R.layout.product_item, null);
  list.addView(vi);
}
