Android Selected State ListView Example

December 5th, 2009 3 comments

Sometimes we need to maintain the selected position in a list. This example was taken from a real-world, off-road application where users interact with the application in a bumpy environment and need a fool proof way of changing the sort order of items in a list. When an item is clicked in the list and that row becomes the selected row as indicated by a different background color. The user can then change the position of the selected row using the Move Up and Move Down buttons on the screen.

Here’s a screen-shot of this example running in the emulator.

Back Road Cycling Hardwick, Greensboro and Woodbury Vermont

December 5th, 2009 No comments

I spent three great days in August visiting family and cycling in the Hardwick, Vermont area. The weather was perfect, three consecutive days with no rain, maybe the longest dry streak of 2009 for the North East Kingdom. My brother Spencer let me borrow his hardtail mountain bike which I setup with Dura Ace SPD-SL pedals. Not exactly a common sight on mountain bikes but it worked out well for this trip. Also acquired a UVM Cycling jersey for the trip. I had no idea UVM Cycling was so successful for the 2008-2009 season, first and second at the Collegiate National Cycling Championships. Catamounts on bikes..makes sense to me.
