Problem: Android – ListView with Two TextViews and ImageView

Welcome to the part 3 of the ListView series.

So far this series:

  1. Part 1 – Simple
  2. Part 2 – ListView with Two TextView

In 2nd part, we discussed about defining custom adapter and defining a custom item xml layout file. As said in 2nd part, we can have as many as views we want in each items, to do this we just need to take views inside the item XML layout file. So as defined in the problem, we will take 2 TextView and 1 ImageView

We have already looked into defining custom adapter, so I will directly jumped into the example.

For example:
Main.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
	android:id="@+id/relativeLayout1"
	android:layout_width="fill_parent"
	android:layout_height="fill_parent"
	xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <ListView
    	android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    	android:layout_width="match_parent"
    	android:id="@+id/listView3"
    	android:layout_alignParentLeft="true">
    </ListView>

</RelativeLayout>

listitem_row.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
	android:id="@+id/relativeLayout1"
	android:layout_width="fill_parent"
	android:layout_height="fill_parent"
	xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
	android:padding="5dip">

    <ImageView
    	android:layout_width="50dip"
    	android:layout_height="50dip"
    	android:id="@+id/imgViewLogo"
    	android:src="@drawable/icon"
    	android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
    	android:layout_centerInParent="true"
    	android:scaleType="center">
    </ImageView>

    <TextView
    	android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"
    	android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    	android:text="TextView"
    	android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    	android:id="@+id/txtViewTitle"
    	android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/imgViewLogo"
    	android:layout_marginLeft="2dip">
    </TextView>

    <TextView
    	android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    	android:text="TextView"
    	android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    	android:id="@+id/txtViewDescription"
    	android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/imgViewLogo"
    	android:layout_below="@+id/txtViewTitle"
    	android:layout_marginLeft="2dip">
    </TextView>

</RelativeLayout>

		holder.imgViewLogo.setImageResource(R.drawable.icon);
		holder.txtViewTitle.setText(title[position]);
		holder.txtViewDescription.setText(description[position]);

		return convertView;
	}
