Android Transparent TextView?

Simply, how to make a TextView transparent? (Not full transparency)

I searched the docs and the StackNetwork and couldn't find it?
I guess there is something like this.

Thanks.

UPDATE

This is the XML code:

<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:gravity="center_horizontal"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:background="@drawable/background">

<ImageView
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/header"
android:src="@drawable/logo1"
/>
<ListView android:id="@android:id/list"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:paddingRight="5dp"
android:scrollbarStyle="outsideOverlay"
android:cacheColorHint="#00000000" />


<TextView
android:id="@+id/footer"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:textSize="25sp"
android:singleLine="true"
android:background="#07000000"
android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
android:text="rrrrr" />

</LinearLayout>


I want the footer
TextView
to be transparent
so that the ListView items can be seen while scrolling

Answer

Please try this piece of code..

<TextView 
   android:id="@+id/txtview1"
   android:layout_width="wrap_content" 
   android:background="@drawable/bg_task" 
   android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
   android:textSize="14sp" 
   android:singleLine="true"
   android:textColor="#FFFFFF" />

Used background image as transparent so may be solved that.

OR

android:background="#07000000"

OR

Please try below ...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:gravity="center_horizontal" android:orientation="vertical"
    android:background="@drawable/main_bg">
    <ImageView android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:id="@+id/header"
        android:src="@drawable/btn_complete" />
    <RelativeLayout android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent">
        <ListView android:id="@+id/list" android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:layout_weight="1"
            android:paddingRight="5dp" android:scrollbarStyle="outsideOverlay"
            android:cacheColorHint="#00000000" />
        <TextView android:id="@+id/footer" android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:textSize="25sp"
            android:singleLine="true" android:background="#07000000"
            android:textColor="#FFFFFF" android:text="rrrrr"
            android:layout_centerInParent="true"
            android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" />
    </RelativeLayout>
</LinearLayout>
