search functionality on listview or on a custom list view.

android search
Search  icon inside edit text 




1. Create a new project in Eclipse File New ⇒ Android ⇒ Application Project and fill the required details.
2. Create required files needed to generate a list view. I am using my default activity_main.xml as list view and created a new xml file for single list item named listview.xml
activity_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    android:layout_width="fill_parent"

    android:layout_height="fill_parent"

    android:orientation="vertical" >

    <EditText

        android:id="@+id/EditText01"

        android:layout_width="fill_parent"

        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
         
        android:drawableLeft="@android:drawable/ic_menu_search"

    </EditText>

    <ListView

        android:id="@+id/ListView01"

        android:layout_width="fill_parent"

        android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

    </ListView>

</LinearLayout>
