How to get selected item from custom ListView?


Ask by : W.K.S January 31, 2013 12:12

I have a custom ListView where each row consists of a number of TextViews inside it. When I click on the ListItem, the OnListItemClick() doesn't get called. So how do you get the selected of a custom list view?

Thanks for your help!

XML for Row:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="horizontal"

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/priorityView"
        android:layout_width="20dip"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:background="#cccccc"
        android:layout_marginTop="2dip"
        android:layout_marginBottom="2dip" />

I find the solution.

You have to set the android:focusable attribute to false for each widget inside the custom ListView, including the Layout widgets.
