Modify the java code of the last exercise "ListView, with icon" to add listener of onListItemClick()

Implement onListItemClick() of ListActivity
package com.exercise.AndroidList;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.ListView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class AndroidList extends ListActivity {

String[] DayOfWeek = {"Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday",
"Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
setListAdapter(new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
R.layout.row,, DayOfWeek));

protected void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
//super.onListItemClick(l, v, position, id);
String selection = l.getItemAtPosition(position).toString();
Toast.makeText(this, selection, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

how to I define an argument, an id for example, instead of index of array? I noted that the id that passed by parameter of onListItemClick method is Index of array

Hello Hélio,

The arguments are passed by Android S to you, not defined by you. Please read here:, android.view.View, int, long).
