Login: enter the input field. // both are at the same level
- TableLayoutIs a view group that displays child view elements in rows and columns.
- RecyclerViewIs a UI element that displays a collection of items in a list or grid, enabling users to scroll through the collection.
- ListViewIs a view group that creates a list of scrollable items. List items are automatically inserted into the list using the list adapter.

It provides a simple way to display a scrolling list of rows that can be used with built-in styles or widely customized. The listview instance requires an adapter to feed it along with the data contained in the row view.
