Android app side by side controls

I am very new to android development and I am doing my first app. I would like to place a textbox (numeric) and radiobox  controls side by side (see the attachment) - how do I do that. Every time I drop a control onto the page it wants to put it in the same location as the previous control

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You are going to have to manually code your xml layout files. (I assume you are using the graphics editor).

Post the contents of your xml so we can check you are not doing anything obviously wrong.

Put these things inside of a LinearLayout and set android:orientation="horizontal". Then adjust the margins, padding etc....for the controls you put inside to control spacing. If you have more than these controls or you will have more, put the LinearLayout that has a horizontal orientation inside of a LinearLayout with a vertical orientation. This way you can keep adding LijnearLayouts with horizontal orientation to the wrapping LinearLayout that has a vertical orientation so that you can stack your horizontal linearlayouts one on top of the other within your vertical linearlayout.
