What is the equivalent of "colspan" in an Android TableLayout?

I'm using a TableLayout in Android. Right now I have one TableRow with two items in it, and, below that, a TableRow with one item it it. It renders like this:

-----------------------------
| Cell 1 | Cell 2 |
-----------------------------
| Cell 3 |
---------------


What I want to do is make Cell 3 stretch across both upper cells, so it looks like this:

-----------------------------
| Cell 1 | Cell 2 |
-----------------------------
| Cell 3 |
-----------------------------


In HTML I'd use a COLSPAN.... how do I make this work in Android?

Answer

It seems that there is an attribute doing that : layout_span

UPDATE: This attribute must be applied to the children of the TableRow. NOT to the TableRow itself.
