  • Did you attach the same layout in your activity or fragment. Please share the code of your Activity/Fragment too.
    If you are attaching the same layout then you can try the following points:-

    • Remove layout_marginTop="-500dp" from the imageview
    • Use wrap_content Instead of giving match_parent to the width and height of imageview
