Android Question

Default Selection of a Row in the ListView and HighLight the slected Row Android

I have 2 listview. I want when the activity starts first row of the both the listview to be selected by default.I googled up i found this

onewaydata=new OneWayFlightResult(this, flightData);
onewayListView.setAdapter(onewaydata);
onewayListView.setSelection(0);

onewayListView.getSelectedView().setSelected(true);


But this is not working for me

These are the two ListView that i have

<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_above="@+id/footerLayout"
android:layout_below="@+id/sortFlightLayouts"
android:orientation="horizontal" >

<ListView
android:id="@+id/lvDepartures"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"/>
<View
android:layout_width="1dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="@android:color/darker_gray" />
<ListView
android:id="@+id/lvArrivals"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"/>

</LinearLayout>

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:background="@color/change_text_color"
android:layout_height="wrap_content" >
</RelativeLayout>


And then the change_text_color.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<item android:state_pressed="true"
android:color="#E5FFED" /> <!-- pressed -->
<item android:state_focused="true"
android:color="#E5FFED" /> <!-- focused -->
<item android:color="#EEE9E9" /> <!-- default -->
</selector>


It is throwing exception

SO please suggest me what i have to do to make the default selection on the listview.

Answer

Try this, it should do the trick:

your_list_view.post(new Runnable() {

        @Override
        public void run() {
           your_list_view.setSelection(0);          
           }
        });

UPDATE: Please take a look at this

    class YourAdapter extends BaseAdapter{

            @Override
            public int getCount() {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                return 0;
            }

            @Override
            public Object getItem(int arg0) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                return null;
            }

            @Override
            public long getItemId(int arg0) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                return 0;
            }

            @Override
            public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup arg2) {
                View view = convertView;

                if(position == 0){
                    // This is the first item, you need to select this
                    view.setSelected(true);

                }
                // Do whatever you want here
                return view;
            }

        }

In XML:

<ListView
            android:id="@+id/lvDepartures"
            android:layout_weight="1"
            android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
            android:listSelector="@null" <!--Here is the thing you need-->
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"/>
        <View
            android:layout_width="1dp"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:background="@android:color/darker_gray" />
        <ListView
             android:id="@+id/lvArrivals"
             android:layout_weight="1"
             android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
             android:listSelector="@null" <!--Here is the thing you need-->
             android:layout_height="wrap_content"
             android:layout_width="wrap_content"/>

In your item-row-xml:

    <LinearLayout
             android:layout_width="wrap_content"
             android:layout_height="wrap_content"
             android:background="@drawable/item_row_selector"> <!--Here is the thing you need-->
    <!--Your item layout here-->
    </LinearLayout>

And last you need to implement your own item_row_select with the state of "selected".

Hope this helps.
