Convert ArrayList to String array in Android

I have a ArrayList that contains values in the form [ann,john]. I want to convert this ArrayList into a String array in the form {"ann","john"}.

How should I do this?

My Android code:

     final Button markabsent = (Button) findViewById(R.id.Button02);
      markabsent.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
          public void onClick(View v) {

            // Perform action on click
             Toast.makeText(display.this,"You have marked the students absent",Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

             SparseBooleanArray checkedabsent = lView.getCheckedItemPositions();



            for (int i = 0; i < arr2.length; i++) 
            {
                if (checkedabsent.get(i)) 
                {
                    items2.add(arr2[i]);
                    System.out.println(items2);

                }
            }

            Log.d("", "items:");
            for (String string : items2)
            {
                Log.d("string is", string);


            }  
          }
      });  

My Logcat:

     11-10 21:44:00.414: INFO/System.out(2316): [ann, john, ann]
     11-10 21:44:00.414: DEBUG/(2316): items:
     11-10 21:44:00.414: DEBUG/string is(2316): ann
     11-10 21:44:00.414: DEBUG/string is(2316): john

I tried doing everything mentioned in the answers but my logcat just doesn't seem to imrove

Here is the one giving exceptions:

          11-10 22:14:20.855: INFO/System.out(3322): [Ljava.lang.String;@44eb6ff0

          11-10 22:16:38.186: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(3411):     at android.os.Handler.handleCallback(Handler.java:587)

Here is one more:

          11-10 22:14:20.875: DEBUG/string is(3322): ann
          11-10 22:14:20.875: INFO/System.out(3322): [Ljava.lang.String;@44eb7720

Use the method "toArray()"

ArrayList<String>  mStringList= new ArrayList<String>();
mStringList.add("ann");
mStringList.add("john");
Object[] mStringArray = mStringList.toArray();

for(int i = 0; i < mStringArray.length ; i++){
    Log.d("string is",(String)mStringArray[i]);
}

or you can do it like this: (mentioned in other answers)

ArrayList<String>  mStringList= new ArrayList<String>();
mStringList.add("ann");
mStringList.add("john");
String[] mStringArray = new String[mStringList.size()];
mStringArray = mStringList.toArray(mStringArray);

for(int i = 0; i < mStringArray.length ; i++){
    Log.d("string is",(String)mStringArray[i]);
}

    • Same problem here as in Casey's original post: toArray() returns an Object[] which cannot be cast to String[]. Mind to edit your answer?

    • Sure, just got it fixed and added the second alternative of first creating the Array and then passing it as a parameter to the toArray() method

Well in general:

List<String> names = new ArrayList<String>();
names.add("john");
names.add("ann");

String[] namesArr = new String[names.size()];
for (int i = 0; i < names.size(); i++) {
    namesArr[i] = names.get(i);  
}

Or better yet, using built in:

List<String> names = new ArrayList<String>();
String[] namesArr = names.toArray(new String[names.size()]);

String[] array = new String[items2.size()];

I know im very late to answer this. But it will help others, I was also stucked on this.

Here is what i did to get it work.

String[] namesArr = (String[]) names.toArray(new String[names.size()]);

try this

List<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
list.add("List1");
list.add("List2");

String[] listArr = new String[list.size()];
listArr = list.toArray(listArr );

for(String s : listArr )
    System.out.println(s);
