How to handle ListView click in Android


Question

How do I listen to click event on a ListView?

This is what I have now

ListView list = (ListView)findViewById(R.id.ListView01);  
...  
list.setAdapter(adapter);  

When I do the following

list.setOnItemSelectedListener(new AdapterView.OnItemSelectedListener() {  
   public void onItemSelected(AdapterView parentView, View childView, 
                                                         int position, long id) 
   {  
       setDetail(position);  
   }

   public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView parentView) {  

   }  
});  

That doesn't seem to do anything on click.
And all those code live within a class that extends Activity.

On your list view, use setOnItemClickListener

Suppose ListView object is lv, do the following-

lv.setClickable(true);
lv.setOnItemClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {

  @Override
  public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> arg0, View arg1, int position, long arg3) {

    Object o = lv.getItemAtPosition(position);
    /* write you handling code like...
    String st = "sdcard/";
    File f = new File(st+o.toString());
    // do whatever u want to do with 'f' File object
    */  
  }
});
