Android Android Lists and Adapters (2015) Acting on List Item Taps Tapping on a ListView Item

RecyclerView sendVote()

Hi Jonathan Grieve. I finally solved the ListView problem. Am stuck on this one. Went through documentation and video but still stuck.

GameListActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.view.ListView;

public class GameListActivity extends ListActivity {

    public String[] mGames = {
        "Age of Empires",
        "Civilization",
        "Minecraft",
        "SimCity"
    };

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_game_list);

        ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, mGames);
        setListAdapter(adapter);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id) {
       super.onListItemClick(l, v, position, id);

      String games = mGames[position].sendVote();

    }

    // This is a helper method to tally votes on a back-end system
    public void sendVote(String game) {
        VoteService.recordVote(game);
    }
}

Unfortunately I don't know enough about Android Lists and Adapters to give a reliable answer here, but again, if you post the error message the code challenge is giving you maybe someone else can help?

Also I bet if you rewatch the proceeding video some inspiration will come to you :)
