Adding Table rows Dynamically in Android

Create an init() function and point the table layout. Then create the needed rows and columns.

   public void init() {
            TableLayout stk = (TableLayout) findViewById(R.id.table_main);
            TableRow tbrow0 = new TableRow(this);
            TextView tv0 = new TextView(this);
            tv0.setText(" Sl.No ");
            tv0.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
            tbrow0.addView(tv0);
            TextView tv1 = new TextView(this);
            tv1.setText(" Product ");
            tv1.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
            tbrow0.addView(tv1);
            TextView tv2 = new TextView(this);
            tv2.setText(" Unit Price ");
            tv2.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
            tbrow0.addView(tv2);
            TextView tv3 = new TextView(this);
            tv3.setText(" Stock Remaining ");
            tv3.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
            tbrow0.addView(tv3);
            stk.addView(tbrow0);
            for (int i = 0; i < 25; i++) {
                TableRow tbrow = new TableRow(this);
                TextView t1v = new TextView(this);
                t1v.setText("" + i);
                t1v.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
                t1v.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
                tbrow.addView(t1v);
                TextView t2v = new TextView(this);
                t2v.setText("Product " + i);
                t2v.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
                t2v.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
                tbrow.addView(t2v);
                TextView t3v = new TextView(this);
                t3v.setText("Rs." + i);
                t3v.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
                t3v.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
                tbrow.addView(t3v);
                TextView t4v = new TextView(this);
                t4v.setText("" + i * 15 / 32 * 10);
                t4v.setTextColor(Color.WHITE);
                t4v.setGravity(Gravity.CENTER);
                tbrow.addView(t4v);
                stk.addView(tbrow);
            }

        }

Call init function in your onCreate method:

@Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        init();
    }

Layout file like:

 <ScrollView
        android:id="@+id/scrollView1"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="#3d455b"
        android:layout_alignParentLeft="true" >

        <HorizontalScrollView
            android:id="@+id/hscrll1"
            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

            <RelativeLayout
                android:id="@+id/RelativeLayout1"
                android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                android:layout_gravity="center"
                android:layout_height="fill_parent"
                android:orientation="vertical" >

                <TableLayout
                    android:id="@+id/table_main"
                    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" >
                </TableLayout>
            </RelativeLayout>
        </HorizontalScrollView>
    </ScrollView>

Will look like:

You shouldn't be using an item defined in the Layout XML in order to create more instances of it. You should either create it in a separate XML and inflate it or create the TableRow programmaticaly. If creating them programmaticaly, should be something like this:

    public void init(){
    TableLayout ll = (TableLayout) findViewById(R.id.displayLinear);


    for (int i = 0; i <2; i++) {

        TableRow row= new TableRow(this);
        TableRow.LayoutParams lp = new TableRow.LayoutParams(TableRow.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
        row.setLayoutParams(lp);
        checkBox = new CheckBox(this);
        tv = new TextView(this);
        addBtn = new ImageButton(this);
        addBtn.setImageResource(R.drawable.add);
        minusBtn = new ImageButton(this);
        minusBtn.setImageResource(R.drawable.minus);
        qty = new TextView(this);
        checkBox.setText("hello");
        qty.setText("10");
        row.addView(checkBox);
        row.addView(minusBtn);
        row.addView(qty);
        row.addView(addBtn);
        ll.addView(row,i);
    }
}

You also can, as Fredigato said, declare a RelativeLayout in a separate Layout file. Then instantiate it using:

for(int i = 0; i < 6; i ++){
LayoutInflater inflater = (LayoutInflater)getApplicationContext().getSystemService
                (Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
RelativeLayout row = (RelativeLayout) inflater.inflate(R.layout.table_view,null);
        quizesTableLayout.addView(row,i);
}

In this approach you can easily design one custom row using XML and reuse it.

Now, to be able to change the children views in the instantiated RelativeLayout. You can call row.childAt(index).

So lets say you have a TextView in the RelativeLayout, you can use:

TextView tv = (TextView) row.childAt(0);
tv.setText("Text");
