Class Overview

An easy adapter to map columns from a cursor to TextViews or ImageViews defined in an XML file. You can specify which columns you want, which views you want to display the columns, and the XML file that defines the appearance of these views. Separate XML files for child and groups are possible. Binding occurs in two phases. First, if a SimpleCursorTreeAdapter.ViewBinder is available, setViewValue(android.view.View, android.database.Cursor, int) is invoked. If the returned value is true, binding has occurred. If the returned value is false and the view to bind is a TextView, setViewText(TextView, String) is invoked. If the returned value is false and the view to bind is an ImageView, setViewImage(ImageView, String) is invoked. If no appropriate binding can be found, an IllegalStateException is thrown.

Public Constructors

public SimpleCursorTreeAdapter (Context context, Cursor cursor, int collapsedGroupLayout, int expandedGroupLayout, String[] groupFrom, int[] groupTo, int childLayout, int lastChildLayout, String[] childFrom, int[] childTo)

Added in API level 1

Constructor.

Parameters
context Context: The context where the ExpandableListView associated with this SimpleCursorTreeAdapter is running
cursor Cursor: The database cursor
collapsedGroupLayout int: The resource identifier of a layout file that defines the views for a collapsed group. The layout file should include at least those named views defined in groupTo.
expandedGroupLayout int: The resource identifier of a layout file that defines the views for an expanded group. The layout file should include at least those named views defined in groupTo.
groupFrom String: A list of column names that will be used to display the data for a group.
groupTo int: The group views (from the group layouts) that should display column in the "from" parameter. These should all be TextViews or ImageViews. The first N views in this list are given the values of the first N columns in the from parameter.
childLayout int: The resource identifier of a layout file that defines the views for a child (except the last). The layout file should include at least those named views defined in childTo.
lastChildLayout int: The resource identifier of a layout file that defines the views for the last child within a group. The layout file should include at least those named views defined in childTo.
childFrom String: A list of column names that will be used to display the data for a child.
childTo int: The child views (from the child layouts) that should display column in the "from" parameter. These should all be TextViews or ImageViews. The first N views in this list are given the values of the first N columns in the from parameter.
