I am trying to turn some items visibility off when submitting a high score.

I have the following code but it does not appear to work. Any suggestions?

mSignText = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.sign);

submitBtn = (ImageView) this.findViewById(R.id.submitbtn);

For visibility, you must use setVisibility as you have done:

  • View.VISIBLE
  • View.GONE

GONE set the view as invisible, and it doesn't take any space for layout purposes.

  • \$\begingroup\$ You must have another problem. I use these functions without problem. Are you sure you have unique ids for each row ? Use this code not in the list but with one unique EditText or ImageView in your Layout. \$\endgroup\$
