With the ToDo List example, I would like to be able to set the focus to a particular item in the list, by code. For example I want to set the first item as highlighted automatically at the beginning, under program control. I have tried everything I can think off but not successful yet. Can anyone help please?
Further to my problem, I have successfully used
" myListView.setSelection0); " to position the place in the array list correctly.
That is part of my problem solved. The remaining part of the problem is that I have been unable to turn on the highlight at this position.
When I press the down key on the dpad the highlight turns on at the position I have set as outlined above. But when I try to use
" myListView.getSelectedItemPosition() " without manually highlighting the position first, the app crashes. That is why I want to highlight
an item by program control, to prevent such a crash. Thanks for your help so far. Is there any way to turn on the selection highlight?
