Hi all. This question is part technical and part opinion.
Technical part: I want the ListView to display the entire contents of the strings I put into the list adapter, not just the first two lines (that is, I have a set of Long Strings that I was the listview to display, but it only shows the first two lines show). I tried putting android:maxLines="5" in the xml file for the row, but it's no good.
Opinion part: So what I'm trying to do is this: for whatever reason, I want to have a pseudo discussion board. The screen I'm trying to create is the view where you're viewing a particular thread, with a bunch of people's posts (from one thread) and whatnot. At first I only want the first X characters of each post to appear until you click the post, and then the rest of the post appears on the same page. Does the ListView seem the way to go for this? Or do you think I should be going for a different approach?
