I am writing a custom implementation of a ListAdapter.
In its constructor, I’m taking in a Context, a resource ID (i.e. R.id.xxx representing the layout file), and a list and a map (these contain the data).
Now, the problem is that i will need a LayoutInflater to get the View object which is in the separate layout XML file.
How can I get hold of the LayoutInflater given only the Context?
Now, why I think this is possible, is that this is quite similar to what is being passed in to the constructor of an ArrayAdapter (context, resource, textViewResourceId, data array), and I figure the ArrayAdapter also has to make use of a LayoutInflater given only a Context.
But how can it be done?
You can use the
from() method from the
LayoutInflater li = LayoutInflater.from(context);
You can also use this code to get LayoutInflater:
LayoutInflater li = (LayoutInflater) context.getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE)
