I am creating a list .. the elements of the list are drawn from sqlite
database .. I populate the list using ArrayList and
ArrayAdapter ...upon clicking the items on the list I want to be able
to fire an intent containing info about the item clicked ... info like
the index number of the item ..

using the method : onItemClick(AdapterView av, View v, int index, long

I do get index of the item clicked . however it is of the list
currently displayed . the problem comes when I do
setFilterTextEnabled(true) , and on the app type in some text to to
search some item ..and then click it ..rather than giving me the index
of the item on the original list it gives me the index on filtered

following is the snippet of code:
myListView.setOnItemClickListener(new OnItemClickListener() {
        public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> av, View v, int index,
long arg) {
            Intent lyricsViewIntent = new Intent(iginga.this,



Is there any way I can get the original index /position of the item
instead of the one showing in filtered text ...when filtered.

I'm studying app2sd solution to expand space for apps using sd card.
I think the use of a looped ext2 img file is more easy to handle by
scripts to be used in softwares like htc sync (or any sync) however i
think triggering an sd scan seeking for extra ext2 partition or an
ext2 img file on the sd card could be a nice way to a further option
in the android preferences: which is "select a different partition to
store your apps"

Or even select and copy text to the clipboard? (just like the default
