Android Question Problem with CustomListView with Structure as Value

    I am using a CustomListView (xCustomListView v1.64 from Erel) and when adding items the value does not behave well when it is a structure (Type).

    CustomListView1.Add(CreateItem(Line1, Line2, Line3), Structure1)

    It works perfect when the value is a number or a string, but when it is a structure, the value stored in each item corresponds to the last one stored in the structure, regardless of whether the data has been correctly assigned to the structure for each item.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your time.

    it does work for me perfect.
    So you are reusing the type object instead of creating a new one each time. Sounds like here is the problem.

    This is a common mistake. It is discussed in this tutorial:

    I'm doing something like this:

    Type KeyStructure(Data1 As String, Data2 As Int, Data3 As String)

    Dim Structure1 As KeyStructure

    For Counter = 0 To List1.Size - 1

    Map1 = List1.Get(Counter)

    Line1 = Map1.Get("field1")
    Line2 = Map1.Get("field2")
    Line3 = Map1.Get("field3")


    Structure1.Data1 = Map1.Get("code1")
    Structure1.Data2 = Map1.Get("code2")
    Structure1.Data3 = Map1.Get("code3")

    CustomListView1.Add(CreateItem(Line1, Line2, Line3), Structure1)


    When I doing click on the CustomListView1

    Dim LocalStructure As KeyStructure
    LocalStructure = CustomListView1.GetValue(Index)

    LocalStructure always has the same value that corresponds to the last data given in the reading above.

    1. I already told you that you should not reuse the same object.
    2. Erel posted a video which describes exactly this problem.

    You just ignore both hints.

    For Counter = 0 To List1.Size - 1

    Map1 = List1.Get(Counter)

    Line1 = Map1.Get(
    Line2 = Map1.Get(
    Line3 = Map1.Get(
    Dim Structure1 As KeyStructure

    Structure1.Data1 = Map1.Get(
    Structure1.Data2 = Map1.Get(
    Structure1.Data3 = Map1.Get(

    CustomListView1.Add(CreateItem(Line1, Line2, Line3), Structure1)

    Erel and Jeffrey Cameron like this.

    All good. Beginner error. The "dim" of the structure is established within the "for" and the problem is corrected. Thank you.
