selector not working with layout and image view

I want to use selector for a layout and image view..But it is not working for me.
When I changed image view to imagebutton or button, it works fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.. Thanks in advance..


here is the xmls I used..

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<!-- When selected, use grey -->
<item
android:state_pressed="true"
android:drawable="@drawable/bg"
/>
<!--<item

android:drawable="@drawable/bg"
android:state_focused="true"/>
When not selected, use white-->

<item
android:drawable="@drawable/bg_01" />
</selector>

-> The layout xml :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_height="fill_parent">
<ImageButton
android:layout_width="100dp"
android:layout_height="50dp"
android:text="layout tester"
android:textColor="#000000"
android:textStyle="bold"
android:paddingTop="10dp"
android:src="@drawable/testselector"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal" />
</LinearLayout>

Answer

I ran into this problem just now. You'll have to set the LinearLayout to clickable. You can either do this in the XML with

android:clickable="true"

Or in code with

yourLinearLayout.setClickable(true);
