View Full Version : How to get info from ListFragment item

11-16-2012, 04:45 PM
Hi - I have a ListFragment that is populated using a CursorLoader. Once the ListFragment is populated, I have an OnItemClickListener method in which I want to identify which item from the List Fragment the user chose. How do I do this? I've tried:

String item = getListAdapter().getItem(position);

String item = getListAdapter().getItem(position).toString();

String item = (String) ((Fragment) getListAdapter().getItem(position)).getString(0);
Where position is an integer passed to the onClickItemListener method like so:

public void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id)
All of these throw Cast Exceptions of one type or another. I'm stumped. This seems like a simple thing to do. For your reference, here's how the List Fragment is populated:

private SimpleCursorAdapter mAdapter;
private static final String[] PROJECTION = new String[] { "_id", "stitchname" };
public void onActivityCreated(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

Intent myData = getActivity().getIntent();
Bundle info = myData.getExtras();
String[] dataColumns = { "stitchname" };
int[] viewIDs = { R.id.stitchlist1 };
mAdapter = new SimpleCursorAdapter(getActivity(), R.layout.stitchlist, null, dataColumns, viewIDs, 0);
getLoaderManager().initLoader(0, info, (LoaderCallbacks<Cursor>) this);
public Loader<Cursor> onCreateLoader(int id, Bundle args) {
String selection = "stitchlevel=?";
String[] selectionArgs = new String[] {args.getString("Level")};
return (Loader<Cursor>) new CursorLoader(getActivity(), STITCHES_URI,
PROJECTION, selection, selectionArgs, null);

public void onLoadFinished(Loader<Cursor> loader, Cursor cursor) {
mAdapter.swapCursor((android.database.Cursor) cursor);

Any suggestions would be most welcome, thanks!
