I would like to implement the status function of my application similar to gtalk but i am not able to understand what widget or design i should take (I am beginner in android) The gtalk status seems like a spinner. I am not able to understand:- How to put image and the text in status(Images of busy/available etc are different so different item have different images). How to add customer messages in spinner.We can add as many as status messages in gtalk app at runtime. What kind of bar of widget is present on home screen which has image(Your image),email id and the status(below example available) ?
I tried with the list view but it is not fullfilling the requirement because :- 1. It is not drop down. 2. If i create a dropdownlist view using a button and a popup list on click then the problem is :- a. I am not able to set the view(layout) of the popup button like the layout of the list(row). b. The button/text view should have dynamic value = the selected item in list....like a spinner
