Spinner on value Change

I have two spinner in my system. Now I have to change the selected value of the 2nd spinner depending on the first spinner value. As soon as the user will change the 1st spinner value, the 2nd spinner value will set automatically depending upon the 1st spinner's selected value. How to implement this?

Answer

From the Hello Spinner tutorial:

Now create a nested class that implements AdapterView.OnItemSelectedListener. This will provide a callback method that will notify your application when an item has been selected from the Spinner. Here's what this class should look like:

public class MyOnItemSelectedListener implements OnItemSelectedListener {

    public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> parent,
        View view, int pos, long id) {
      Toast.makeText(parent.getContext()), "The planet is " +
          parent.getItemAtPosition(pos).toString(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
    }

    public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView parent) {
      // Do nothing.
    }
}

The AdapterView.OnItemSelectedListener requires the onItemSelected() and onNothingSelected() callback methods. The former is called when an item from the AdapterView is selected, in which case, a short Toast message displays the selected text; and the latter is called when a selection disappears from the AdapterView, which doesn't happen in this case, so it's ignored. Now the MyOnItemSelectedListener needs to be applied to the Spinner. Go back to the onCreate() method and add the following line to the end: spinner.setOnItemSelectedListener(new MyOnItemSelectedListener());

In other words, you need to create an OnItemSelectedListener that modifies the value of the second spinner, and attach it to the first spinner.
