How to handle the click event in Listview in android?

The below is my testing code to create the list view, the list view display successfully, however, there is error in click event. I would like to create an intent to send a hardcode message to an new activity. However, it show error for the line

Intent intent = new Intent(context, SendMessage.class);


So , the problem is , what should I provide for this class?

Also , instead of hard code the output message, how to capture the data in list view row and pass to the new activity? e.g.
BBB,AAA,R.drawable.tab1_hdpi
for the first row.

Thanks.

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
public final static String EXTRA_MESSAGE = "com.example.ListViewTest.MESSAGE";

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
ArrayList<ListEntry> members = new ArrayList<ListEntry>();
members.add(new ListEntry("BBB","AAA",R.drawable.tab1_hdpi));
members.add(new ListEntry("ccc","ddd",R.drawable.tab2_hdpi));
members.add(new ListEntry("assa","cxv",R.drawable.tab3_hdpi));
members.add(new ListEntry("BcxsadvBB","AcxdxvAA"));
members.add(new ListEntry("BcxvadsBB","AcxzvAA"));
members.add(new ListEntry("BcxvBB","AcxvAA"));
members.add(new ListEntry("BvBB","AcxsvAA"));
members.add(new ListEntry("BcxvBB","AcxsvzAA"));
members.add(new ListEntry("Bcxadv","AcsxvAA"));
members.add(new ListEntry("BcxcxB","AcxsvAA"));
ListView lv = (ListView)findViewById(R.id.listView1);
Log.i("testTag","before start adapter");
StringArrayAdapter ad = new StringArrayAdapter (members,this);
Log.i("testTag","after start adapter");
Log.i("testTag","set adapter");
lv.setAdapter(ad);
lv.setOnItemClickListener(new OnItemClickListener() {
@Override
public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int position,
long id) {
Intent intent = new Intent(context, SendMessage.class);
String message = "abc";
intent.putExtra(EXTRA_MESSAGE, message);
startActivity(intent);
}
});
}

Answer

I can not see where do you declare context. For the purpose of the intent creation you can use MainActivity.this

 lv.setOnItemClickListener(new OnItemClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int position,
                    long id) {
                Intent intent = new Intent(MainActivity.this, SendMessage.class);
                String message = "abc";
                intent.putExtra(EXTRA_MESSAGE, message);
                startActivity(intent);
            }
        });

To retrieve the object upon you have clicked you can use the AdapterView:

ListEntry entry = (ListEntry) parent.getItemAtPosition(position);
