The setting op of my click listener for each checkbox in my custom list items is causing the application to crash.

Below is a copy of the code section that I have made to got through and load up each listViewItem.
//SET UP MAIN LIST
        lv1 = (ListView)findViewById(R.id.mainList);
        double listTotal = 0;
        
       if(!itemList.isEmpty())
        {
    	   //Toast.makeText(this, "Entered Setup Main loop", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    	   
        	ArrayList<HashMap<String, String>> mylist = 
		        	new ArrayList<HashMap<String,String>>();
        	 
        	for (int i = 0; i <= itemList.size()-1; i++)
        	{       			        
		        HashMap<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
		        map.put("id", Integer.toString(itemList.get(i).getItem_id()));
		        map.put("top", itemList.get(i).getName());
		        map.put("bottom", String.valueOf(itemList.get(i).getPrice()));
		        mylist.add(map);
		        listTotal = listTotal + itemList.get(i).getPrice();
		        
		        final String name = itemList.get(i).getName();
		        
		        CheckBox needItem = (CheckBox)lv1.findViewById(R.id.listneeded);      
		        needItem.setOnCheckedChangeListener(new OnCheckedChangeListener()
		        {
					@Override
					public void onCheckedChanged(CompoundButton buttonView,
							boolean isChecked) {
						//createToast("Item: " + name);
					}
		        });
        	}
        	
	        SimpleAdapter lItems = new SimpleAdapter(this,mylist,R.layout.listitemlayout,
	        		new String[]{"id", "top", "bottom"}, new int[]{R.id.itemid, R.id.topText, R.id.bottomText});
	        
	        lv1.setAdapter(lItems);
	        
        }

I bet that

lv1.findViewById(R.id.listneeded)

Open in new window


returns null. You should do your setter in getView() of the adapter

Sorry for the delayed responce.  

Your right my lv1.findViewById(R.id.listneeded) is returning null. I think I may be going about settign up this listView wrong.  

Is there a better example that shows how to set the eventListeners for the custome listView items?

no, your listview is OK, but its items (ie individual lines) are defined in getView() method of the adapter. Android asks your adapter to build a view for given index - and that's where you create your custom lines, so you can setup it there.

have a look at this video - http://www.google.com/intl/it-IT/events/io/2010/sessions/world-of-listview-android.html - that's the guy behind many Android features :)
