Interface ExpandableListAdapter

All Known Implementing Classes:
BaseExpandableListAdapter, CursorTreeAdapter, ResourceCursorTreeAdapter, SimpleCursorTreeAdapter, SimpleExpandableListAdapter

public interface ExpandableListAdapter

An adapter that links a ExpandableListView with the underlying data. The implementation of this interface will provide access to the data of the children (categorized by groups), and also instantiate Views for children and groups.

Method Detail

registerDataSetObserver

void registerDataSetObserver(DataSetObserver observer)
See Also:
Adapter.registerDataSetObserver(DataSetObserver)

unregisterDataSetObserver

void unregisterDataSetObserver(DataSetObserver observer)
See Also:
Adapter.unregisterDataSetObserver(DataSetObserver)

getGroupCount

int getGroupCount()
Gets the number of groups.

Returns:
the number of groups

getChildrenCount

int getChildrenCount(int groupPosition)
Gets the number of children in a specified group.

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group for which the children count should be returned
Returns:
the children count in the specified group

getGroup

Object getGroup(int groupPosition)
Gets the data associated with the given group.

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group
Returns:
the data child for the specified group

getChild

Object getChild(int groupPosition,
                int childPosition)
Gets the data associated with the given child within the given group.

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group that the child resides in
childPosition - the position of the child with respect to other children in the group
Returns:
the data of the child

getGroupId

long getGroupId(int groupPosition)
Gets the ID for the group at the given position. This group ID must be unique across groups. The combined ID (see getCombinedGroupId(long)) must be unique across ALL items (groups and all children).

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group for which the ID is wanted
Returns:
the ID associated with the group

getChildId

long getChildId(int groupPosition,
                int childPosition)
Gets the ID for the given child within the given group. This ID must be unique across all children within the group. The combined ID (see getCombinedChildId(long, long)) must be unique across ALL items (groups and all children).

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group that contains the child
childPosition - the position of the child within the group for which the ID is wanted
Returns:
the ID associated with the child

hasStableIds

boolean hasStableIds()
Indicates whether the child and group IDs are stable across changes to the underlying data.

Returns:
whether or not the same ID always refers to the same object
See Also:
Adapter.hasStableIds()

getGroupView

View getGroupView(int groupPosition,
                  boolean isExpanded,
                  View convertView,
                  ViewGroup parent)
Gets a View that displays the given group. This View is only for the group--the Views for the group's children will be fetched using getChildrenView.

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group for which the View is returned
isExpanded - whether the group is expanded or collapsed
convertView - the old view to reuse, if possible. You should check that this view is non-null and of an appropriate type before using. If it is not possible to convert this view to display the correct data, this method can create a new view. It is not guaranteed that the convertView will have been previously created by getGroupView(int, boolean, View, ViewGroup).
parent - the parent that this view will eventually be attached to
Returns:
the View corresponding to the group at the specified position

getChildView

View getChildView(int groupPosition,
                  int childPosition,
                  boolean isLastChild,
                  View convertView,
                  ViewGroup parent)
Gets a View that displays the data for the given child within the given group.

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group that contains the child
childPosition - the position of the child (for which the View is returned) within the group
isLastChild - Whether the child is the last child within the group
convertView - the old view to reuse, if possible. You should check that this view is non-null and of an appropriate type before using. If it is not possible to convert this view to display the correct data, this method can create a new view. It is not guaranteed that the convertView will have been previously created by getChildView(int, int, boolean, View, ViewGroup).
parent - the parent that this view will eventually be attached to
Returns:
the View corresponding to the child at the specified position

isChildSelectable

boolean isChildSelectable(int groupPosition,
                          int childPosition)
Whether the child at the specified position is selectable.

Parameters:
groupPosition - the position of the group that contains the child
childPosition - the position of the child within the group
Returns:
whether the child is selectable.

areAllItemsEnabled

boolean areAllItemsEnabled()
See Also:
ListAdapter.areAllItemsEnabled()

isEmpty

boolean isEmpty()
See Also:
Adapter.isEmpty()

onGroupExpanded

void onGroupExpanded(int groupPosition)
Called when a group is expanded.

Parameters:
groupPosition - The group being expanded.

onGroupCollapsed

void onGroupCollapsed(int groupPosition)
Called when a group is collapsed.

Parameters:
groupPosition - The group being collapsed.

getCombinedChildId

long getCombinedChildId(long groupId,
                        long childId)
Gets an ID for a child that is unique across any item (either group or child) that is in this list. Expandable lists require each item (group or child) to have a unique ID among all children and groups in the list. This method is responsible for returning that unique ID given a child's ID and its group's ID. Furthermore, if hasStableIds() is true, the returned ID must be stable as well.

Parameters:
groupId - The ID of the group that contains this child.
childId - The ID of the child.
Returns:
The unique (and possibly stable) ID of the child across all groups and children in this list.

getCombinedGroupId

long getCombinedGroupId(long groupId)
Gets an ID for a group that is unique across any item (either group or child) that is in this list. Expandable lists require each item (group or child) to have a unique ID among all children and groups in the list. This method is responsible for returning that unique ID given a group's ID. Furthermore, if hasStableIds() is true, the returned ID must be stable as well.

Parameters:
groupId - The ID of the group
Returns:
The unique (and possibly stable) ID of the group across all groups and children in this list.
