You have to get a reference to you button, for 3 example by calling findViewById(). When you got the reference 2 to the button you can set the x and y value 1 with button.setX() and button.setY().

Button myButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.<id of the button in the layout xml file>);
myButton.setX(<x value>);
myButton.setY(<y value>);

The answer you're looking for is in LayoutParams. Firstly, I'd 5 suggest not using AbsoluteLayout -- it's deprecated 4 -- and using something else, maybe a FrameLayout, and 3 just using the left and top margins as your 2 x and y offsets.

However, to answer your 1 question:

Button button = (Button)findViewById(R.id.my_button);
AbsoluteLayout.LayoutParams absParams = 
absParams.x = myNewX;
absParams.y = myNewY;

Or alternatively:

Button button = (Button)findViewById(R.id.my_button);
button.setLayoutParams(new AbsoluteLayout.LayoutParams(
    AbsoluteLayout.LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT, AbsoluteLayout.LayoutParams,
    myNewX, myNewY));
