If you really only want a single-color line, you can use simplelayout:

<view bgcolor="black">
     <simplelayout axis="y" spacing="1"/>
    ... random views ...

The above example will show a black between all the views. Of course, if 
those views are themselves transparent, there'll be black all over the

That could get a bit messy, but is otherwise a great idea. Layouts are 
for coordinating visual state between different views - that's what 
you're trying to do here.

If you're replicating views using databinding, you could have each view 
display a line except for the last one:

<method args="d" event="ondata">
     if ( d.getOffset() == d.parentNode.childNodes.length - 1 ) {
         // don't show line
     } else {
         // show line

That last example probably isn't current with lps-3.2 recommended 
syntax, but will still work.
