ListActivity does the ArrayAdapter<T> class have to be an Inner Class

I have a Concrete class that implements ListActivity in this class I
have an InnerClass extends ArrayAdapter<T>. This came from an example
and works great i.e. displays my list of items on the screen.

The problem is that I tried pulling out the InnerClass and use it as a
standalone Concrete class. So now I pass in the array of Items i.e T[]
to the constructor but when I set the ListActivity classes
setListAdapter(my pulled out InnerClass); the screen comes up empty?

So is this by design that ArrayAdapter has to be an InnerClass in the
ListActivity class?

If no then how can i get the list to display and update.

Thank you,

Hello developers,

I would like to develope an application whose extracts some numbers
from a web site

In JAVA, I read the HTML file with this method :
public static String get(String adresse) {
                String toreturn = null;
                try {
                        URL url = new URL(adresse);
                        URLConnection uc = url.openConnection();
                        InputStream in = uc.getInputStream();
                        int c =;
                        StringBuilder build = new StringBuilder();
                        while (c != -1) {
                                build.append((char) c);
                                c =;
                        toreturn = build.toString();
                } catch (MalformedURLException e) {
                } catch (IOException e) {
                return toreturn;

But it doesn't work in ANDROID.
the method return nothing.

thanks for your help.
