Updating textview on activity once data in adapter class is changed

I am having textview txtQuantity in my dashboard activity. I wrote separate class for custom adapter which will contain sold products.

 protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_dashboard);

    list = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.listSoldItems);

    txtAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtAmount);
    txtItems = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtItems);

    // init listview
    adapter = new Sold_item_adaptor(Dashboard.this, soldItemsList);
    list.setAdapter(adapter);

I can remove items from list using adapter. Code for removing items is written in adapter class.

public View getView(final int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
    View vi = convertView;
    if (convertView == null)
        vi = inflater.inflate(R.layout.list_row_sold_item, null);

    TextView txtListItem = (TextView) vi.findViewById(R.id.txtListItem);
    final TextView txtQuantity = (TextView) vi.findViewById(R.id.txtQuantity);
    ImageView imgCancel = (ImageView) vi.findViewById(R.id.imgCancel);

    HashMap<String, String> mapData = new HashMap<String, String>();
    mapData = data.get(position);

    txtListItem.setText(mapData.get("product"));
    txtQuantity.setText(mapData.get("qty"));

    imgCancel.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
            doButtonOneClickActions(txtQuantity, position);
        }
    });

    return vi;
}

private void doButtonOneClickActions(TextView txtQuantity, int rowNumber) {
    // Do the actions for Button one in row rowNumber (starts at zero)
    data.remove(rowNumber);
    notifyDataSetChanged();

}

On my dashboard activity I am maintaining number of items selected, total amount. Now if I remove item from listview, code from custom adapter removes the item but how can I get notification / signal on dashboard activity to update quantity.

By providing a simple callback.

For this to work write a simple interface in your adapter

public interface OnDataChangeListener{
    public void onDataChanged(int size);
}

and add a setter for the listener (also in the adapter)

OnDataChangeListener mOnDataChangeListener;
public void setOnDataChangeListener(OnDataChangeListener onDataChangeListener){
    mOnDataChangeListener = onDataChangeListener;
}

now add additional code to the following block in the adapter

private void doButtonOneClickActions(TextView txtQuantity, int rowNumber) {
    ...
    if(mOnDataChangeListener != null){
        mOnDataChangeListener.onDataChanged(data.size());
    }
}

in your dashboard activity you then need to register the listener

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    ...
    adapter.setOnDataChangeListener(new Sold_item_adaptor.OnDataChangeListener(){
        public void onDataChanged(int size){
            //do whatever here
        }
    });
}

That's about it ;).


the main idea is:

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_dashboard);

list = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.listSoldItems);

txtAmount = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtAmount);
txtItems = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.txtItems);

// init listview
adapter = new Sold_item_adaptor(Dashboard.this, soldItemsList,txtAmount);
list.setAdapter(adapter);

in your adapter:

public class MyAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<SoldItemsList > {

private Context context;
private mTotalQty;
private TextView mTxtAmountAdapter;


 public OfferAdapter(Context context, int resource,SoldItemsList object,TextView txtAmount ) {
    super(context, resource, objects);
    this.context = context;
    this.mTxtAmountAdapter = txtAmount;


}

//...

imgCancel.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {
    doButtonOneClickActions(position);
    // update totalAmount
     mTxtAmountAdapter.setText(Integer.valueOf(totalAmount).toString()));

}
});

imgPlus.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {
    qtyClickAction(position);
     // update totalQty
    mTxtAmountAdapter.setText(Integer.valueOf(totalAmount).toString()));

}
});

Override notifyDataSetChanged() in your adapter class ... and do what ever you want ...

@Override
public void notifyDataSetChanged() {
    super.notifyDataSetChanged();
   // Your code to nofify
}

As I understand the question, you are interested in a way to update UI outside the adapter after doButtonOneClickActions();

The simplest way would be to use https://github.com/greenrobot/EventBus

Examples can be found here http://awalkingcity.com/blog/2013/02/26/productive-android-eventbus/

If you do not want to do this, you can create a callback http://android-er.blogspot.dk/2013/09/implement-callback-function-with.html
