I have a question regarding linearlayout(maybe other layout types)
|       textf             |button  |

I want to implement above layout, firstly to place a textfield on the
screen, and place a button on its right, the button's size is fixed,
and I want to textfield to fill the rest space of the row.

I want to use LinearLayout, but can not implement such UI.

Anyboday have suggestion? Thank you!

 Give your button a width of wrap_content, your text field a width of
0dip and a weight of 1.

 Why not trying RelativeLayout?You may use android:layout_toRightOf:
@id/textf  for the button.
