Add column to table programmatically

I have some trouble to add columns to a table programmatically, maybe I look/search for the wrong keywords, but can't find a proper solution.

I got this code:

ScrollView sv = new ScrollView(this);

TableLayout ll=new TableLayout(this);
HorizontalScrollView hsv = new HorizontalScrollView(this);
TableRow tbrow=new TableRow(this);
for(int i=0;i<mConnector.idArray.size();i++) {
tbrow=new TableRow(this);

TextView tv1=new TextView(this);
//String s1 = Integer.toString(i);
try {
String insecticide = mConnector.insecticideArray.get(i);
String wegedoornuis = mConnector.wegedoornluisArray.get(i);
String dosering = mConnector.doseringArray.get(i);
String prijs = mConnector.prijsArray.get(i);
String bestuivers = mConnector.bestuiversArray.get(i);
String roofvijanden = mConnector.roofvijandenArray.get(i);

// String result = insecticide +" | "+wegedoornuis+" | "+dosering+" | "+prijs+" | "+bestuivers+" | "+roofvijanden;
// int id = Integer.parseInt(s3);
tv1.setId(i);

tv1.setText(id);
tbrow.addView(tv1);
}catch(java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException e){

}

ll.addView(tbrow);
}
hsv.addView(ll);
sv.addView(hsv);
setContentView(sv);


What I wanted is that every String (after
try{
) is getting his own column.
So like
String result
(what is now in comment signs). but then that I can adjust the columns width.

Hope you guys know what I mean, else I can always add an image to illustrate.

Made an image fast:

You can't add Strings directly to the view, but you could use text views to do the same thing. I'll show you an example that I did once, and let you figure out how to do it for your own use.

        TableRow row=new TableRow(this.getApplicationContext());
        TableLayout tlayout=new TableLayout(this.getApplicationContext());

        tlayout.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
        tlayout.setBackgroundResource(R.color.background);

        row=new TableRow(this);

        TextView text1=new TextView(this.getApplicationContext());
        TextView text2=new TextView(this.getApplicationContext());
        TextView text3=new TextView(this.getApplicationContext());

        text1.setText(R.string.name);
        row.addView(text1);
        text2.setText(R.string.level);
        row.addView(text2);
        text3.setText(R.string.score);
        row.addView(text3);
        tlayout.addView(row);
        for (i=0;i<10;i++)
        {
            row=new TableRow(this.getApplicationContext());
            text1=new TextView(this.getApplicationContext());
            text2=new TextView(this.getApplicationContext());
            text3=new TextView(this.getApplicationContext());


            text1.setText(high_score_name.get(i));
            row.addView(text1);
            text2.setText(""+high_score_level.get(i));
            row.addView(text2);
            text3.setText(""+high_score_score.get(i));
            row.addView(text3);
            tlayout.addView(row);
        }

Essentially, high_scores_....get(i) returns a string. Something very similar should work for your purposes.

The output will look something like this, continued down 10 rows.

name1  score1  level1
name2  score2  level2
