How to make first row of tablelayout take whole space

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I have a table layout with 5rows. I'd like the size of first row to take the rest of the screen while the remaining rows take as much space they need based on the content inside. My first intuition was to make the first row's layout width and height set to match_parent while having the other rows' width to match_parent and height to wrap_content. Needless to say, this does not work. How can I accomplish this? (HowTos)
