    Hello, i'm a newby in android development and i need some help with listview binding. I have read that the most effective way to use a listview binded to a datasource is to use a cursor which speaks directly to sqlite. I start my project using this method but i'm not able to face a critical for my application issue.

    I need to change values of the binded list but those changes doesn't affect my database until user press save button. In c# i can do this in many ways like datatable or bindingsource objects.

    For example, my app has a list with products with their prices. I want to change prices through a popup window which open from context menu. When the popup window close i need to display the new price in listview but i haven't save it into database yet. Finnaly when i have change prices of all products i want to press save button and update my database using a transaction.

    Is there any way to succeed something like this using cursors for binding or i have to use lists of custom class objects?

    Thanks in advanced and sorry for my bad usage of english.
