  3. This is very good, however when I change the orientation of my phone the app crashes. Anyone have any ideas why? Here is the logcat:

  4. Hi,
    If i create i listview in one of the fragment and I want to refresh the listView after the fragment is created. how do i can do this. Thanks in advance.

  5. Hi guys,

    Thanks Sushant, for your sample.
    It didn’t work at first but I managed to get it working.
    I also included an image to replace that drawable.thumb I couldn’t find

    For anyone asking for the complete source, here follows:

    I have this sample which is almost everything I want to do but lacks zoom:

    And I also have this great sample which has pinch-zoom:

    Now modified by me with a double tap listener zooming to image at 100%:
    offtopic: The girl in the photo included in this sample is my neighbour 🙂

    Now what I would like to do is either put the ImageViewTouch on a Pageviewer like the sample explained on this page so a user can swipe the image to see the next photo keeping the zooming capabilites, or use the first sample from Google but with zooming.

    Could anyone give a little help here?

    Thank you so much 🙂
    Ricardo Santos
