Android - Get value from HashMap


Question

I have tried to search on HashMap in Android, but getting problem:

Consider this example:

HashMap<String, String> meMap=new HashMap<String, String>();
meMap.put("Color1","Red");
meMap.put("Color2","Blue");
meMap.put("Color3","Green");
meMap.put("Color4","White");

now I want to iterate it and get the value of each color and want to display in "Toast". how do I display it?

Accepted Answer

Iterator myVeryOwnIterator = meMap.keySet().iterator();
while(myVeryOwnIterator.hasNext()) {
    String key=(String)myVeryOwnIterator.next();
    String value=(String)meMap.get(key);
    Toast.makeText(ctx, "Key: "+key+" Value: "+value, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}

Here's a simple example to demonstrate Map usage:

Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
map.put("Color1","Red");
map.put("Color2","Blue");
map.put("Color3","Green");
map.put("Color4","White");

System.out.println(map);
// {Color4=White, Color3=Green, Color1=Red, Color2=Blue}        

System.out.println(map.get("Color2")); // Blue

System.out.println(map.keySet());
// [Color4, Color3, Color1, Color2]

for (Map.Entry<String,String> entry : map.entrySet()) {
    System.out.printf("%s -> %s%n", entry.getKey(), entry.getValue());
}
// Color4 -> White
// Color3 -> Green
// Color1 -> Red
// Color2 -> Blue

Note that the entries are iterated in arbitrary order. If you need a specific order, then you may consider e.g. LinkedHashMap

On different Map characteristics:


On enum

You may want to consider using an enum and EnumMap instead of Map<String,String>.
