SHARE

We can cache view lookup for improve performance, here’s the solution:

View lookup cache:

private class ViewCache {
        TextView serverID;
        TextView name;
    }

The custom ArrayAdapter

    public class CityAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<City> {
        public CityAdapter(Context context, ArrayList<City> cities) {
            super(context, 0, cities);
        }

        @Override
        public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            // Get the data item for this position
            City city = getItem(position);
            ViewCache viewCache;
            if (convertView == null) {
                viewCache = new ViewCache();
                LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(getContext());
                convertView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.item, parent, false);
                viewCache.serverID = (TextView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.serverID);
                viewCache.name = (TextView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.name);
                convertView.setTag(viewCache);
            } else {
                viewCache = (ViewCache) convertView.getTag();
            }
            // Populate the data into the template view using the data object
            viewCache.serverID.setText(city.serverID);
            viewCache.name.setText(city.name);
            // Return the completed view to render on screen
            return convertView;
        }
    }

        // Create the adapter to convert the array to views
        CityAdapter adapter = new CityAdapter(this, arrayOfCities);

        listView.setAdapter(adapter);

        listView.setOnItemClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> adapterView, View view, int i, long l) {
                City cityselected = (City) listView.getItemAtPosition(i);
                //String serverID = cityselected.serverID;
                String name = cityselected.name;
                Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "City selected: " + name, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            }
        });
    }
...
}

The result we get:

android viewcache
