I have a ListView that I want to use with an ArrayAdapter to add different styled rows. The rows are created on different states in my application, and depending on the different states the rows should be styled(like colors and stuff). Here is some pseudo-code:
on creation: mArrayAdapter = new ArrayAdapter(this, R.layout.message); mView = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.in); mView.setAdapter(mArrayAdapter);
On different states, which is triggered by another thread using a MessageHandler, add a row to the list containing a message: mArrayAdapter.add("Message");
This works fine, messages are popping up in the list depending on different states, but I want to have the rows styled differently. How to do this? Is the solution to create a custom ArrayAdapter with a custom Add() method?
// Display the available locations list_search.setAdapter(new ArrayAdapter<Object>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_2, android.R.id.text1, list_cities)); list_search.setAdapter(new ArrayAdapter<Object>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_2, android.R.id.text2, list_countries));
I would like to display double rows for each entry in the list (city and country) but I have no luck. With the above code I only see the countries but not the cities. Is there any way to add both the adapters to the list_search so I can see all the data?
I have a ListView that could have 4 different views for a row depending on the data for the row. I have the ListView working correctly overriding getViewTypeCount and getItemViewTYpe. I originally was trying to dynamiclly update the view type count as new views were inflated by forcing calls to getViewTypeCount because it was possible that maybe one or two views may be all that would be needed. The app never functioned correctly crashing after there was more than one view added. The problem was fixed by setting getViewTypeCount to always return 4. I noticed getViewTypeCount is automatically called on app start-up and never called again unless a force call is made. So I'm just curious if this can be changed dynamically or do you need to know the number of max views you can possibly have and override getViewTypeCount to return that max value.
I have an Android ListView, backed by an ArrayAdapter. When the user clicks on an item in the list, that item is removed. This all appears to work fine, you can click on each item until there are no items left.
However, it all goes wrong once text filtering occurs. Once the list has been filtered once, even if that filter is cleared, all subsequent calls to remove(Object) on the adapter fail to remove the item from the visible list. I've tried calling ListView.clearTextFilter() before removing the item, calling it after removing the item, and not calling it all. There's no difference.
I've looked through the source for ArrayAdapter.java and it seems that once filtering is set, the adapter uses one collection to respond to queries but updates a different one. I can see no obvious way to get it to revert its behaviour. Is this a bug or am I missing something?
I am developing an application which requires me to load first twenty rows (consisting on icons and two text fields) and if I have more rows I need to display a button. When i click this button I want to display more twenty rows( again iconified).My current approach which is working is that on the button click I create one more activity which will have the previous rows and the new rows. In this case the cursor is set to the very first row.But I want to have something like Facebooks "Older Post" where the new rows get appended to the old ones and the cursor is set to the last row to which the new rows are added.Please can anyone give me ideas on how to achieve this. That is, how to add rows (iconified) to the existing array adapter.
I have an ArrayAdapter powering a ListView. I would like to change the data behind the ArrayAdapter and update the ListView's. Sounds like notifyDataSetChanged(); would be exactly what I am looking for, but it updates the entire ListView, and I would prefer to update on a row-by-row basis.
Is there a way to do this with ArrayAdapter, or do I need to manage my data some other way if I want this functionality?
Are there design guidelines to help decide if an application with multiple views should be designed with multiple activities or just one activity and control the back button itself.
I've tried both. My most complex applications using one activity per screen. However, now that I'm successfully written an app with just one activity and handling the back button myself, I don't see any compelling reason to use multiple activities. The one activity application is much simpler and more straightforward.
What advantages of multiple activities am I missing?
Currently my ListView is filling up with the given String but I wanted to alternate some styles on the ListView items. Something weird is happening (I'm surely missing something obvious); The ListView Index is not fixed and the styles are not alternating as supposed. My Code is the following:
I have an activity with multiple list views that are continuously receiving new values form a socket thread, another thread parses the data and updates the array adapters, then the ui thread calls notifyDataSetChanged() to cause the list to refresh.
My issue is that im refreshing all the list a couple of time a second, this causes the UI to be very laggy when some animations need to happen.
I was wondering what the best way is to update multiple lists with multiple value changes every second?
I have a list (of messages) and I want to give the user the ability to remove these items from the list. I have extended an ArrayAdapter and give it an ArrayList of my messages and would like to simply remove an item from that list and then refresh the listview instead of reloading the entire list of sent messages. The problem is, if there's only one message and I remove it using listAdapter.remove(messageObject), the adapter is still calling getView and then throwing NullPointerExceptions all over the place. I'm not sure what the best way is to go about this.
i want to implement listview with uses different xml layouts for rows depending on underlying item. A non optimal solution will be int getView method just to inflate every time a new view depending on the item from the adapter. Is there a better way to do this?
is it possible to let my ListView show 2 different rows? On the picture you can see at the top something like a "teaser", the other rows are normal ListView. The screenshot is from the iPod. With their framework it is possible to show 2 different row styles. I badly need this on Android... Otherwise I would use a tabel design. But adding rows dynamically would be such an overhead instead of using ListView SimpleAdapter addItem...
I want to make a listview that has different rows (layouts). I will load the data from a webservice and it can be 2 or more layouts i have to generate then. I am creating a social network app and want to show a stream of the users activity. So when he made a comment, make a new friend, this all has to come in the same list.. I load 1 XML file with multiple different child objects (comment, friend) so i can see which layout i have to use........
I saw the Android app "Mobisle Notes Free" implement a really cool ListView, where a row gets moved to the bottom if its checkbox is checked. It's not just a simple refresh, but an actual animation where you see the row travel to the bottom. Does anyone know how to implement this?
I made my simple, custom rows and listviews. Right now, only clicking on the text of the row is valid selection area. I want the entire row, even the no-text area to be selectable. Where do I modify? Am I looking for focusing or selecting?...................
i am quite new to android and i was wondering how i could go about adding a listview with different images and text. What i am trying to achieve is a listview with four rows which have a different Icon? I don't know how to set that up using the xml layout provided. should i build this using different multiple linear layout or is there a better way to go about it?.. All the examples i have seen all seem to be using one particular Icon and no much detail of the xml layout.
I have 2 ways of displaying ListView data. I have a class for each type of row. I do not create the rows in an xml layout. (Each row is derived from View and does custom drawing). When I switch from 1 type of row to another how do I get the ListView to layout properly with the correct row heights, and refresh? Is View.forceLayout() on the right track?
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.
The problem is when scrolling; sometimes the correct image shows, but sometimes when scrolling back/forward, the images shows randomly and that is not associated with the row. The images are downloaded from the web.
So, basically I have a custom View that contains a ListView with a custom Adapter that has the ability to read in information from the network (dumbed down HTML) and display it on a row by row basis. All of this works, but I need the text that is read in to be parsed as HTML which contains links that can be tapped on and launched in browser. I managed to do this by:
Works great, any <a href=""></a> links in the text are displayed as links and can be tapped. This is a side effect of now making it so the rest of the rows in the ListView cannot be tapped (or tapped and held). Basically, all the rows are non-selectable now. Is there any way to achieve both of what I need?
The row of my listview has 3 texts. What I want to do is to align all the rows texts vertically. I tried that using the TableLayout view for the row, and I've set the width for the first and third cell's as a constant. I'm not very happy using constants because of the porting issues. Is it possible to align these texts without in another way? Here is the layout...
