arraylist of customized objects between activites

Postby sheshi85 » Mon Jun 22, 2009 3:11 pm

Hello everyone,
I am a beginner that i just passed data between activites.Now I wanted to pass a arraylist of customized objects between activites.Though some discussion in the site is made on how to do it,I am not clear.i read the customized class needs to implement Serializable or parcelable.Is it the solution for customized class,or is there any solution.From 2 days working hard but in vain.can Some one address this problem please!!!!.

Lets say that im trying to pass an ArrayList from one activity to another and im using your example
Code: Select all
ArrayList<ObjetoSimples> listasObjetoSimples = new ArrayList<ObjetoSimples>();
...populate the array...
HashMap meMap=new HashMap();
Intent myIntent = new Intent(this, Tela2.class);

and in Tela2.class

Intent getIntent=getIntent();
ArrayList<ObjetoSimples> mystreamagain = getIntent().getExtra("memap").get("mystream");

what i'm i doing wrong? i removed the () from getIntent() but still have some errors.

Any thoughts?

Are you searching for getParcelable and putParcelable ?

Your putExtra is fine.

When your recieving it, I have come across an error and have to do:
Code: Select all
Serializable data = getIntent().getSerializableExtra("memap");
                if(data != null){
                        HashMap<String, Object> hm = (HashMap<String, Object>) data; // Dont know WHY it won't let me cast straight to my object

Just change this from HashMap to your ArrayList, can't really explain this code but hope it helps :-)
