    hi,
    to display the contact i have used this coding
    Code (Text):

    [LEFT][SIZE=2]Cursor cursor = getContacts();[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2]String[] fields = [/SIZE][B][SIZE=2][COLOR=#7f0055][SIZE=2][COLOR=#7f0055]new[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=2] String[] { ContactsContract.Data.[/SIZE][I][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000c0][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000c0]DISPLAY_NAME[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][/I][SIZE=2] };[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=2][COLOR=#3f7f5f][SIZE=2][COLOR=#3f7f5f]//this.setListAdapter(new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,android.R.layout.simple_list_item_checked,));[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][/LEFT]
     
    [SIZE=2]SimpleCursorAdapter adapter = [/SIZE]
    [LEFT][B][SIZE=2][COLOR=#7f0055][SIZE=2][COLOR=#7f0055]new[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=2] SimpleCursorAdapter([/SIZE][B][SIZE=2][COLOR=#7f0055][SIZE=2][COLOR=#7f0055]this[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=2],[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2]android.R.layout.[/SIZE][I][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000c0][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000c0]simple_list_item_checked[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][/I][SIZE=2], cursor, fields,[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000c0][SIZE=2][COLOR=#0000c0]mContactList[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR][/SIZE][SIZE=2].setAdapter(adapter);[/SIZE][/LEFT]

    Hi All,
    I know the code below opens the native Edit/Add contact screen

    Intent newIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_INSERT,
    ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI);
    startActivityForResult(newIntent, 1);

    now i want this screen to be populated with some data in fields like
    name, phone number, address etc. I found that if i do something like
    newIntent.putExtra(ContactsContract.Intents.Insert .NAME, "Some
    Name");
    will show this screen with name "Some Name" being shown in the name
    field this is fine for me now i dont understand how will i fill the
    first name, last name , city, state and zip fields similarly.
    I found the ContactsContract.Intents.Insert has a
    POSTAL attribute for address but there are no specific attributes for
    first name, last name, city, state and zip in ContactsContract.Intents.Insert.
    Also i found that
    ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.StructuredPostal has the first name, last name, city, state
    and zip attributes but still i dont know how can i use this to
    prepopulate the Edit/Add contact screen with values of first name, last name, city, state
    and zip.

    Please Help me with this,
    star
