Problem with Parcelable data

Whenever I click "7 Day" to see the 7 day forecast, all the days are displayed as Saturday Day.java @Override public void writeToParcel(Parcel dest, int flags) { dest.writeLong(mTime); dest.writeString(mSummary); dest.writeDouble(mTemperatureMax); dest.writeString(mIcon); dest.writeString(mTimezone);


private Day(Parcel in){
    mTime = in.readLong();
    mSummary = in.readString();
    mTemperatureMax = in.readDouble();
    mIcon = in.readString();
    mTimezone = in.readString();

public Day() { }

public static final Creator<Day> CREATOR = new Creator<Day>() {
    public Day createFromParcel(Parcel source) {
        return new Day(source);

    public Day[] newArray(int size) {
        return new Day[size];



private Day[] mDays;

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    Intent intent = getIntent();
    Parcelable[] parcelables = intent.getParcelableArrayExtra(MainActivity.DAILY_FORECAST);
    mDays = Arrays.copyOf(parcelables, parcelables.length, Day[].class);

    DayAdapter adapter = new DayAdapter(this, mDays);




public class DayAdapter extends BaseAdapter {

private Context mContext;
private Day[] mDays;

public DayAdapter(Context context, Day[] days){
    mContext = context;
    mDays = days;


public int getCount() {
    return mDays.length;

public Object getItem(int position) {
    return mDays[position];

public long getItemId(int position) {
    return 0; //we arent going to use this; tag items for easy reference

public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
    ViewHolder holder;

    if (convertView == null) {
        //brand new
        convertView = LayoutInflater.from(this.mContext).inflate(R.layout.daily_list_item, null);
        holder = new ViewHolder();
        holder.iconImageView = (ImageView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.iconImageView);
        holder.temperatureLabel = (TextView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.temperatureLabel);
        holder.dayLabel = (TextView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.dayNameLabel);
        holder.circleImageView = (ImageView) convertView.findViewById((R.id.circleImageView));

    else {
        holder = (ViewHolder) convertView.getTag();

    Day day = mDays[position];

    holder.temperatureLabel.setText(day.getTemperatureMax() + "");

    return convertView;

private static class ViewHolder{
    ImageView iconImageView; //public by default
    TextView temperatureLabel;
    TextView dayLabel;
    ImageView circleImageView;

2 things:

  1. try just passing in mContext instead of this.mContext for your layoutInflater
  2. don't set the circleImageView. In the video, he just has us pass 3 variables: a) iconImageView b) temperatureLabel c) dayLabel

Happy Coding! May the Force be with you!
