 Hello everybody I want set initial height of list view with wrap
content, and later it will be expanded as per data added to specific
limit of height. I used wrap_content for height and android:maxHeight
="100px", but it is not working properly the list grows in height
beyond the maxHeight as the list item added.
Is there any other solution.

1. Application Object and Intents

I have an application that I am developing where I am sending an
intent from the Application class.  The intent has extras, and I am
using sendBroadcast.  Everytime I try and send the intent I get a
nullreferencepointer exception.  I have tried sending it from my
onDecodedData method as well as from another method that is called by
onDecodedData.  Now I am trying to call it from a class that extends
broadcast receiver.  Nothing is working.  Here is my code for sending
the intent:


public void onDecodedData(DeviceInfo deviceInfo,
                                ISktScanDecodedData decodedData) {
                        // Log.d(TAG, "Received Scan");
                        // if(_scanwindow!=null)
                        //
_scanwindow.DoScannedData(decodedData.getData(),decodedData.getSymbologyName());
                        char[] data = decodedData.getData();
                        String processedData = processData(data);
                        Log.d(TAG, "Received Scan = " + processedData);
                        // Intent intentsent = new Intent(
                        // PickupItemsActivity.NOTIFY_DATA_ARRIVAL);
                        // Intent intentsent = new Intent();
                        // 
intentsent.setAction(PickupItemsActivity.NOTIFY_DATA_ARRIVAL);
                        // char[] data = decodedData.getData();
                        // 
intentsent.putExtra("com.SocketMobile.ScannerSettings.Data",
                        // processedData);
                        // String symbologyName = 
decodedData.getSymbologyName();
                        //
intentsent.putExtra("com.SocketMobile.ScannerSettings.Symbology",
                        // symbologyName);
                        try {
                                // sendScanData(processedData);
                                new SendIntents().sendIntent(processedData);
                                Log.d(TAG, "Scan Intent Sent");
                        } catch (Exception e) {
                                Log.d(TAG, "Error = " + e.getMessage());
                        }
                }

private class SendIntents extends BroadcastReceiver {
                ProgressDialog dialog;

                @Override
                public void onReceive(Context arg0, Intent arg1) {

                }

2. How to use ListView in Tab?

Good day.
In my app I have three tab (one Activity extend TabActivity and others
activitys provides access to content). In first tab I have ImageView,
a few TextView and it is works. But when I add ListView and in
activity that contain ListView I add a few rows it was not show in may
tab.

Can someone tell me where I was wrong? Here my code:

In StartActivity:


        intent = new Intent().setClass(this,
GoodsAndShopsActivity.class);

        spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("shops").setIndicator("Shops",
                          res.getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_tab_shops))
                      .setContent(intent);
        tabHost.addTab(spec);

In GoodsAndShopsActivity:

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

        m_shopsLayout = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.shops);

        m_shopList = new ArrayList<Shop>();
        m_shopAdapter = new ShopAdapter(m_shopList, this);
        m_shopsLayout.setChoiceMode(ListView.CHOICE_MODE_SINGLE);
        m_shopsLayout.setAdapter(m_shopAdapter);

        for (int i = 0; i<3; i++) {
                        m_shopList.add(new Shop("new description"));
                        m_shopAdapter.notifyDataSetChanged();
                }

        }
In class that extends BaseAdapter:

    @Override
        public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent)
{
                ViewHolder holder;
                if (convertView == null) {
                        convertView = m_inflater.inflate(R.layout.shop, null);

                        holder = new ViewHolder();
                        holder.descriptions = (TextView)
convertView.findViewById(R.id.shop);

                        convertView.setTag(holder);
                } else {
                        holder = (ViewHolder) convertView.getTag();
                }
                String textOnView = m_shops.get(position).getDescription();
                holder.descriptions.setText(textOnView);
                return convertView;
        }

        static class ViewHolder{
                TextView descriptions;
        }
