Timothy Boland - if adding manually to the xml then there is error "Rendering Problems Exception raised during rendering: Circular dependencies cannot exist in RelativeLayout". See my answer below, that should remedy the problem.

Unset all attributes in the layout:alignComponent for the locationLabel. Then you will be able to choose locationLabel when setting for the ListView. Also, make sure the alignParent for locationLabel is set to bottom only.

hey thanks! this helped me out! I can't best answer you since I didn't post this but I'll up vote u!

Hello, I had the same issue. The dependency here is coming from the way how the other two components are assigned (to relative layout or other elements). In this case textView's needs to be assigned as following:

top one:

    android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"

bottom one:

    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"

It is also important that non of above textView will be assigned to the listView. In my layout it looks as following:

<ListView android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:id="@android:id/list" android:layout_alignParentTop="false" android:layout_alignParentLeft="true" android:layout_alignParentStart="true" android:layout_below="@+id/thisWeekLabel" android:layout_above="@+id/locationLabel" android:layout_marginTop="8dp" android:layout_marginBottom="8dp" android:divider="@null" android:dividerHeight="0dp"/>

Thanks, Hubert
