Android :: Show Cursor Data In A Listview With Subsection Headings

Feb 3, 2010

I have not found an example yet with a solution to the following task.

I have a SQLite database with two tables- BOOK and AUTHOR. I execute a query on the DB that uses a join and results in a cursor that looks like this. code...

New authors and books can be added to the database at any time, and I also need the user to be able to remove books, hence the [ ] checkboxes.

So i have two row layouts, row_author.xml & row_book.xml. I detect when I need to show a row_author subheading by seeing when the current author has changed compared to the previous row. But I have realized that the rendering of an Author Row will then move the cursor forward one row and jump over their first book.

Can anyone suggest a good approach to presenting data like this? Is there a much better way to do this?

Android :: Filter Rows From Cursor - Don't Show Up In ListView

Jun 12, 2010

I have a Cursor that returns rows I use with a SimpleCursorAdapter to populate a ListView. I would like to filter some of the rows so they don't get displayed in my ListView. I use the data from the rows elsewhere in my Activity so I don't want to change my SQL to filter them with a WHERE clause. What is the best way to keep a row from being displaying in my ListView? Ideally I would check a column in my row and then only add rows to the ListView that satisfy a condition.

Android :: Proper Implementation Of Changing ListView Data With Cursor Adapter

Sep 3, 2010

I have a ListView populated via a CursorAdapter. I give my user the ability to alter the data in the list. For example, the user can mark a row as being unread (the data are messages).

Suppose my user marked a row unread. Would a proper implementation mark the row in the database as read and then requery the Cursor?

Android :: How To Only Show Specific Elements In A Cursor Adapter

Jul 23, 2010

I have a custom CursorAdapter that is taking items from a database and displaying them in a listview. If possible, I would like to display only certain elements based on some boolean value within a database element. Here is something similar to what I would like to do:

package itp.uts.program;

import android.content.Context;
import android.database.Cursor;
import android.graphics.Color;
import android.graphics.Typeface;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;
import android.widget.CursorAdapter;
import android.widget.TextView;
//Adapter tests if an element is read or unread, and bolds the items that are unread
public class BoldAdapter extends CursorAdapter. Code...

Android :: Checkbox In Listview With Custom Cursor Binding

Feb 14, 2010

I think I've tried everything(made focusable:false!!) and I cant capture in anyway the selected checkbox on my list item. Even OnItemClickListener, doesn't respond to any click. How can I retrieve checked checkboxes in my list item? My list item included: image view, 4 textviews and the checkbox. Some code:

this is in my ListActivity class:
final String columns[] = new String[] { MyUsers.User._ID, MyUsers.User.MSG, MyUsers.User.LOCATION }; int[] to = new int[] { R.id.toptext, R.id.bottomtext,R.id.ChkBox, R.id.Location}; Uri myUri = Uri.parse("content://com.idan.datastorageprovider/users"); Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(myUri, columns, null, null, null); startManagingCursor(cursor); ListCursorAdapter myCursorAdapter=new ListCursorAdapter(this, R.layout.listitem, cursor, columns, to); this.setListAdapter(myCursorAdapter);

And this is my Custom Cursor adapter class:
public class ListCursorAdapter extends SimpleCursorAdapter { private Context context; private int layout; public ListCursorAdapter(Context context, int layout, Cursor c, String[] from, int[] to) { super(context, layout, c, from, to); this.context = context; this.layout = layout;
} @Override public View newView(Context context, Cursor cursor, ViewGroup parent) { Cursor c = getCursor(); final LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(context); View v = inflater.inflate(layout, parent, false); return v;
} @Override public void bindView(View v, Context context, Cursor c) { TextView topText = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.toptext); if (topText != null) { topText.setText("");
} int nameCol = c.getColumnIndex(MyUsers.User.MSG); String name = c.getString(nameCol); TextView buttomTxt = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.bottomtext); if (buttomTxt != null) { buttomTxt.setText("Message: "+name); } nameCol = c.getColumnIndex(MyUsers.User.LOCATION);
name = c.getString(nameCol); TextView location = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.Location);
if (locationLinkTxt != null) { locationLinkTxt.setText(name);
}
I've tried many ways. many listeners, can't figure how to capture listener to my checkboxes. The data I am binding to the list items from the database, isn't concerned about the checkbox.. only the textviews. There isn't any connection between the database and the checkbox I have in the list's item.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="100sp" android:focusable="false" android:focusableInTouchMode="false"> android:padding="6dip">

Android :: Cursor Adapter - Binding Multiple Item Values In ListView

Jan 12, 2010

I have the following code to intantiate a SimpleCursorAdapter to use with a ListView. As you can see I have passed the R.layout.log_item to display the list items, and one value/control to bind to (TripDate).

SimpleCursorAdapter sca = new SimpleCursorAdapter(this, R.layout.log_item,c,new String[] {DBAdapter.KEY_LOG_TRIPDATE},new int[]{R.id.txtTripDate});

This works. I currently only have one widget in the layout xml, a TextView to hold the TripDate.
How do I pass multiple binding parameters for the additional widgets in the layout? So I can also display other info.

Android :: Inserting Data Into Cursor?

Jun 23, 2009

I'm looking for a way to insert data into a cursor that is separate from the SQL database it retrieves the rest of the information from. Is there any way to to this, or is there a different way to add more information to a list view item? What I'm trying to do is to use a date column for each entry in the list to calculate the number of days until that date (and then put that number in the list item). I know how to get the value, but I just cant find a way to put it into the list without it being in the cursor.

Android :: Adapter With Section Headings

Nov 19, 2010

I have a custom adapter to display a list of items with section headings. I've looked at Jeff Sharkey's SeparatedListAdapter and CommonsWare's MergeAdapter as examples of how to achieve this, and I now have a solution which works by providing a separate adapter for the content of each section. This creates a big performance problem, though. In my case, there are potentially thousands of items in the list, each with an associated date, and I want to use the date as section heading for all the items with that date. So, without section headings, I'd have a single Cursor which returns the items sorted by date. Nice and easy. With section headings, I'm currently doing this: One Cursor to select all distinct dates in the dataset. For each distinct date, a separate Cursor to return the items matching that date. Pour the dates (section headings) and separate SimpleCursorAdapters for each date's items, into my custom adapter.

Android :: Moving Cursor Adapter Cursor Creation To Background Thread

Mar 29, 2010

The structure of some of my activities is a simple ListView with a custom CursorAdapter. The cursor is created in onCreate() on the activity from a SQLite database. The problem is that querying the SQLite database can be quite slow at times with lots of data (and let's assume I've already optimized the sql query as much as possible). Because it occurs in onCreate() on the UI thread, I get ugly black screens when opening the activity, which sometimes turn into ANRs, on a slow phone like the G1. I want to load the cursor in a background and show "Loading.." on screen while doing so. I saw AsyncQueryHandler used extensively in the framework, but this seems a solution geared more towards Content Providers and not application-local SQLite databases. I then thought of trying to load the cursor in a background thread, but realize that this might be problematic, as the CursorAdapter should be instantiated in onCreate() and should take a cursor as a parameter. The latest thought I had was to instantiate an empty MatrixCursor in onCreate() and pass that to the cursor adapter, while kicking off a thread/TimerTask to query the database. Then, on database cursor load, call cursorAdapter.change Cursor to the properly filled cursor. This doesn't seem very elegant and seems quite wasteful, however.

Android :: ListView Won't Show Up Anymore

Jul 3, 2010

I use the following main.xml for my app.

CODE:.............

I want to have 2 buttons at the top, previous and next and my listview with custom adapter below it. Few days ago I had only my ListView showing, going over the buttons. Now I seem to be stuck on the other side, where my listview doesn't show while my buttons do.

My activity extends on ListActivity and uses this code to fill it with a customadapter.

CODE:................

I tried using "lv.addHeaderView(previous);" but that only gave me vague ClassCastExceptions about LayoutParams.

I think my problem is currently in my main.xml, as the Layout tab in Eclipse of it won't show the ListView either. It knows its there as it shows up in the outline tab, but the visual representation doesn't give it a red outline when I select it.

For completeness, my custom_list (aka row) layout xml:

But there is a catch: if the user scrolls down to the bottom of the list, there will be an item that says: "Show more items", and when the users click on it, more items will be added to the list.

My question is how is poosible to have a last item, that has a different style and looks different: and does different things,(I think this is used in QuickSearchbox)

Android :: Can't Show ProgressDialog During Listview Update

Feb 18, 2010

I have a listview of items (songs on the sd card). The user has an option to load all the songs on the sd card to into a current playlist -- those songs are what is displayed in the listview. Because this can take few seconds to load if they have a lot of songs on the card, I want to display a progress dialog to just tell the user "One moment..." until the list refresh is done.

I launch a thread to do this. I've done this successfully on another app I have (which just updates a database in the background but doesn't update any display), but this one fails with this error message, "Can't create handler inside thread that has not called Looper.prepare()". I chopped down the activity and pasted it below. What am I doing wrong here? I have just a vague idea of what might be happening.

By the way, everything works when I take out the threaded stuff, it just looks like the app freezes for a couple seconds.

Android :: Show Dividers After Some Items In Listview
