 Hi guys,

I am making an app which required my checkboxes to be checked at once
when i check the main checkbox.
I am using one normal checkbox widget which i am hoping will work as
my main checkbox and i am also using LIST of multiple
choice(simple_list_item_multiple_choice). Now i want to check all
these listview's checkbox when i check my main checkbox.

I am stuck at this part since last two days please help!!!!

 Call setItemChecked() on the ListView for each position (0 to the size
of your list - 1).

Apps can intercept the call key to let the user press it when on a phone
number or other thing that makes sense to perform a call on.  They can't
intercept end call and home, though, so regardless of whether you consume
the call key you still need to deal with the user leaving your app at any

2. Binder IPC

I am trying to understand the IPC mechanism in Android.

I wanted to have a high level view of this whole mechanism
after a call to transact() is initiated.

Here is a typical scenario I have been trying to understand:

I have filched this from a post on this forum by
"A binder object is an instance of a class that implements the IBinder
The term 'binder class' is used to refer to a concrete class whose
instances are
binder objects. In other words, a binder class directly or indirectly
IBinder, and its instances are binder objects."

Now, IInterface also #includes Binder.h which #includes IBinder.h

A class implements the IInterface.h and exposes some
functions as an interface, which are typically pure virtual.

These are functions that those which should be used by other processes
for whom the object of this Binder class lies outside their address

How is this logically done?

The file IInterface.h itself is more interesting.
It has two more interfaces,

Each of them have the onAsBinder() pure virtual function, which has to
be implemented by the Binder Class.
How and Why are these two interfaces used?

Now, onAsBinder() return an IBinder pointer. How does the flow of
follow up after that?

I have some very basic questions about the Binder IPC. Please shed
some light on them.

1) What does this IBinder pointer point to?
2) How does the IPC work?
3) Explain the working of the transact() function.
   3.1) Explain the Parcel objects  data , reply
   3.2) Who and How is transact() called?

Please go ahead and explain as much as you can about this whole IPC
Point out resources if there are any on this.
