Answer Source

use this example

instead of this........

TextView genre = (TextView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.genre);

use this

LinearLayout mgenre = (LinearLayout) convertView.findViewById(R.id.genre);

Note:-in xml change TextView of id genre into Linear Layout with orientation vertical.

for(String genre:m.getGenre()){
    TextView text = new TextView(context);
    LinearLayout.LayoutParams p = new LinearLayout.LayoutParams(LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);


enjoy coding...........
