How to use ArrayAdapter in android to create simple ListView?


This example demonstrates how do I detect user pressing home key in an activity on android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
   xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <ListView
      android:id="@+id/simpleListView"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:divider="#000"
      android:dividerHeight="2dp"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.ListView;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   ListView simpleList;
   String playersList[] = {"Ronaldo", "Messi", "Neymar", "Isco", "Hazard"};
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      simpleList = (ListView)findViewById(R.id.simpleListView);
      ArrayAdapter arrayAdapter = new ArrayAdapter(this,R.layout.activity_array, R.id.textView, playersList);
      simpleList.setAdapter(arrayAdapter);
   }
}

Step 4 − Create a new Activity, ArrayActivity and dd the following code to res/layout/activity_array.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
   xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   android:orientation="vertical">
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/textView"
      android:layout_width="fill_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_gravity="center"
      android:padding="20sp"
      android:textColor="#000" />
</LinearLayout>

Step 5 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="app.com.sample">
   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".ArrayActivity"></activity>
         <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
            <intent-filter>
               <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
               <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
      <activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen −
