Hi all, this is my first post on this board. I am a java beginner, and i have a problem that cant figure how to resolve it.
Im getting the info from a xml feed, and put the info in a listview. Everthing works fine, but the only problem is that i want to sort by Time the listview.
I know that i need to do it with Collections.sort , but cant figure how to do it.
Hope someone could help me on this one.

filipe oliveira,
Welcome to Java Ranch...

Your post is not clearly stated your problem. Yes, you can use Comparator to sort a list...

And please use the UseCodeTags whenever you submit any code.

Sorry about the CodeTags. I have edited the post with them now.

I´m going to explain my problem. I receive the data from a xml feed. Then, i populate a listview with that data. Works fine.
The problem, is that the items of that xml are not sorted by item datetime. So, i would like to sort the listview by datetime of each item from the xml feed.

I´ve read and google it, try some examples that i found, and know that the sort have to be made with the collections.sort and a comparator (of the datetime of the xml items ), but i just get stuck.

Maybe someone can help me on this.



 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
