Border around ListView in Android app

Hello Android Experts,

I have a ListView and for some reason I cannot get rid of a thick white border around it.  I've attached a screenshot too.  I would appreciate any guidance as to how I can get rid of the border.  Below is the XML of my ListItem.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/LinearLayout1"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:background="#000000"
    android:clickable="true"
    android:orientation="horizontal"
    android:paddingLeft="10dp"
    android:paddingTop="10dp" >

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/imageView1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginRight="10dp"
        android:contentDescription="@string/hello_world"
        android:src="@drawable/logo1" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginBottom="14dp"
        android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="10dp"
        android:text="@string/hello_world"
        android:textColor="@color/NormalText"
        android:textSize="18sp" />

</LinearLayout>

Try playing with the background color of your ListView in its XML to better match your ListItem

as in this example, the ListView has a black background, fills the parent, etc.

 <ListView
        android:id="@+id/listView2"
        android:background="#000000"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:dividerHeight="2sp" >
    </ListView>

I changed per your code, but got same result with the exception that the divider lines are no longer visible due to the background color being black now.

But I did change the background of the layout itself.  And got what I needed.  I guess your suggestion of "playing with the background color" got me to think about what was different from my other layouts.  It was the background image was missing.  My dumb mistake.

Thanks for the 2nd pair of eyes!
