         I was just wondering if there was an easy way to get the value/id of a child of an expandable list view... I tried searching google, but there was literally no information on this topic, and it keeps taking me to overloaded ExpandableListViews... is there a simple way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance!

Set an onclick listner to your list and you can get the value of the selected item.
new OnItemSelectedListener()
 public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView<?> parent) 
	 	//Do nothing.     			  
 public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> parent, View view,int pos, long id) 
	 moviename = parent.getItemAtPosition(pos).toString();
