Android Question

android layout with visibility GONE

Four views are using same xml. I want to show a linear layout for

view 1
only.
I put
android:visibility="gone"
in xml. And then I am doing the following for
view 1
-

LinearLayout layone= (LinearLayout) view.findViewById(R.id.layone);

layone.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);


But that doesn't set the visibility to visible.

Isn't it possible to show the view once its declared
GONE
in xml ?

I don't want to converse the logic by just doing,

layone.setVisibility(View.GONE);


in each of the three views except view 1.

Ideas or comments?

UPDATE:

My xml -

<TextView
android:id="@+id/layone"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="Previous Page"
android:textColor="#000000"
android:textSize="16dp"
android:paddingLeft="10dp"
android:layout_marginTop="10dp"
android:visibility="gone" />
<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="50dp"
android:orientation="horizontal"
android:padding="10dp"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
android:layout_marginRight="10dp"
android:tag="PrevEntries"
android:id="@+id/laytwo"
android:layout_marginTop="10dp"
android:background="@layout/roundedtext"
android:visibility="gone" >

<TextView
android:id="@+id/laythree"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:text="Previous Page"
android:textColor="#000000"
android:textSize="18dp"
android:gravity="center"
android:textStyle="bold" />

</LinearLayout>

Answer

Done by having it like that:

view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.entry_detail, container, false);
TextView tp1= (TextView) view.findViewById(R.id.tp1);
LinearLayout layone= (LinearLayout) view.findViewById(R.id.layone);
tp1.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
layone.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
