    Hi developers,

    I'm trying to create an application that reads the contacts and print them. I did read the contacts but the problem is in printing them. I don't know how to print them as a list so when I run my code it just gives me only one contact. My code is shown below:
    The main activity file:

    package com.cons;

    import android.app.Activity;
    import android.database.Cursor;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import android.provider.Contacts.People;
    import android.widget.TextView;

    public class Contacts extends Activity {

    private String r;
    private TextView t;
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.main);
    t = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.TextView1);
    // Get a cursor over every contact.
    Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(People.CONTENT_URI,
    null, null, null, null);
    // Let the activity manage the cursor lifecycle.
    startManagingCursor(cursor);

    // Use the convenience properties to get the index of the columns

    int nameIdx = cursor.getColumnIndexOrThrow(People.NAME);
    int phoneIdx = cursor. getColumnIndexOrThrow(People.NUMBER);
    String[] result = new String[cursor.getCount()];

    if (cursor.moveToFirst())
    do {
    // Extract the name.
    String name = cursor.getString(nameIdx);
    // Extract the phone number.
    String phone = cursor.getString(phoneIdx);
    result[cursor.getPosition()] = name + " (" + phone + ")";
    r = result[cursor.getPosition()];
    t.setText(r);

    } while(cursor.moveToNext());


    }

    }

    My main.xml file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:eek:rientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
    <TextView
    android:id="@+id/TextView1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content">
    </TextView>
    </LinearLayout>

    The manifest.xml:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.cons"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0.0">
    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name" android:debuggable="true">
    <activity android:name=".Contacts"
    android:label="@string/app_name">
    <intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    </intent-filter>
    </activity>
    </application>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_CONTACTS"></uses-permission>
    </manifest>

    I know there is should be a way that can be done in main.xml file to print the contacts in a list way and my question is how??

    With my bwst regards.
