It will draw Silver gray colored Line between TextView & ListView

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    style="@style/behindMenuItemLabel1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_marginTop="1dp"
    android:text="FaceBook Feeds" />

<View
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="2dp"
    android:background="#c0c0c0"/>

<ListView
    android:id="@+id/list1"
    android:layout_width="350dp"
    android:layout_height="50dp" />

You should use the new lightweight View Space to draw dividers. Your layout will load faster if you will use Space instead of View.

Horizontal divider:

<android.support.v4.widget.Space
        android:layout_height="1dp"
        android:layout_width="match_parent" /> 

Vertical divider:

<android.support.v4.widget.Space
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_width="1dp" />

You can also add a background:

<android.support.v4.widget.Space
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_width="1dp"
        android:background="?android:attr/listDivider"/>

Usage example:

....
<TextView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="One"/>

<android.support.v4.widget.Space
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_width="1dp"
    android:background="?android:attr/listDivider"/>

<TextView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="Two"/>

<android.support.v4.widget.Space
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_width="1dp"
    android:background="?android:attr/listDivider"/>

<TextView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="Three"/>
....

In order to use Space you should add the dependency in your build.gradle:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:22.1.+'
}
