 This is a two part question:

1) Is there a preferred listener for this control?  I notice in order
to get this work, I had to listen for
AdapterView.OnItemSelectedListener and AdapterView.OnItemClickListener

2) Within my onItemClick method, the value of control.isChecked() is
opposite the GUI.  IOW, when I check the box, it returns false.  When
I uncheck, it returns true.

1. getHostByName failing

My application tries to open a socket to a remote (ie. out on the
internet) server but fails with an "Unknown host" exception.  I've
simplified the code and plugged it into HelloAndroid as follows:

public class HelloAndroid extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        try {
        openSocket("", 80);
        } catch (IOException e) {

    private Socket sock;

    private void openSocket(String host, int port) throws IOException
        InetAddress inet = InetAddress.getByName(host);  // exception
raised here
        sock = new Socket();
        sock.connect(new InetSocketAddress(inet, port), 3000);


As the emulator's web browser can connect to
successfully I assume my network configuration is correct.  I even
disabled the firewall on my development machine but to no avail.

BTW my application will connect to a different server and port - I'm
just using & 80 as an example.

All help appreciated.
