android custom listview unable to click on items


android custom listview unable to click on items  using -'java,android'

So I have a custom ListView object. The list items have two textviews stacked on top of each other, plus a horizontal progress bar that I want to remain hidden until I actually do something. To the far right is a checkbox that I only want to display when the user needs to download updates to their database(s). When I disable the checkbox by setting the visibility to Visibility.GONE, I am able to click on the list items. When the checkbox is visible, I am unable to click on anything in the list except the checkboxes. I've done some searching but haven't found anything relevant to my current situation. I found this question but I'm using an overridden ArrayAdapter since I'm using ArrayLists to contain the list of databases internally. Do I just need to get the LinearLayout view and add an onClickListener like Tom did? I'm not sure.

Here's the listview row layout 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="?android:attr/listPreferredItemHeight"
    android:padding="6dip">
    <LinearLayout
        android:orientation="vertical"
        android:layout_width="0dip"
        android:layout_weight="1"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent">
        <TextView
            android:id="@+id/UpdateNameText"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="0dip"
            android:layout_weight="1"
            android:textSize="18sp"
            android:gravity="center_vertical"
            />
        <TextView
            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="0dip"
            android:layout_weight="1"
            android:id="@+id/UpdateStatusText"
            android:singleLine="true"
            android:ellipsize="marquee"
            />
        <ProgressBar android:id="@+id/UpdateProgress"
                     android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                     android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                     android:indeterminateOnly="false"
                     android:progressDrawable="@android:drawable/progress_horizontal"
                     android:indeterminateDrawable="@android:drawable/progress_indeterminate_horizontal"
                     android:minHeight="10dip"
                     android:maxHeight="10dip"                    
                     />
    </LinearLayout>
    <CheckBox android:text=""
              android:id="@+id/UpdateCheckBox"
              android:layout_width="wrap_content"
              android:layout_height="wrap_content"
              />
</LinearLayout>


And here's the class that extends the ListActivity. Obviously it's still in development so forgive the things that are missing or might be left laying around:

public class UpdateActivity extends ListActivity {

    AccountManager lookupDb;
    boolean allSelected;
    UpdateListAdapter list;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

        lookupDb = new AccountManager(this);
        lookupDb.loadUpdates();

        setContentView(R.layout.update);
        allSelected = false;

        list = new UpdateListAdapter(this, R.layout.update_row, lookupDb.getUpdateItems());
        setListAdapter(list);

        Button btnEnterRegCode = (Button)findViewById(R.id.btnUpdateRegister);
        btnEnterRegCode.setVisibility(View.GONE);

        Button btnSelectAll = (Button)findViewById(R.id.btnSelectAll);
        btnSelectAll.setOnClickListener(new Button.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                allSelected = !allSelected;

                for(int i=0; i < lookupDb.getUpdateItems().size(); i++) {
                    lookupDb.getUpdateItem(i).setSelected(!lookupDb.getUpdateItem(i).isSelected());
                }

                list.notifyDataSetChanged();
                // loop through each UpdateItem and set the selected attribute to the inverse

            } // end onClick
        }); // end setOnClickListener

        Button btnUpdate = (Button)findViewById(R.id.btnUpdate);
        btnUpdate.setOnClickListener(new Button.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
            } // end onClick
        }); // end setOnClickListener

        lookupDb.close();
    } // end onCreate


    @Override
    protected void onDestroy() {
        super.onDestroy();

        for (UpdateItem item : lookupDb.getUpdateItems()) {
            item.getDatabase().close();        
        }
    }

    @Override
    protected void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id) {
        super.onListItemClick(l, v, position, id);

        UpdateItem item = lookupDb.getUpdateItem(position);

        if (item != null) {
            item.setSelected(!item.isSelected());
            list.notifyDataSetChanged();
        }
    }

    private class UpdateListAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<UpdateItem> {
        private List<UpdateItem> items;

        public UpdateListAdapter(Context context, int textViewResourceId, List<UpdateItem> items) {
            super(context, textViewResourceId, items);
            this.items = items;
        }

        @Override
        public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            View row = null;

            if (convertView == null) {
                LayoutInflater li = (LayoutInflater)getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
                row = li.inflate(R.layout.update_row, null);
            } else {
                row = convertView;
            }

            UpdateItem item = items.get(position);

            if (item != null) {
                TextView upper = (TextView)row.findViewById(R.id.UpdateNameText);
                TextView lower = (TextView)row.findViewById(R.id.UpdateStatusText);
                CheckBox cb = (CheckBox)row.findViewById(R.id.UpdateCheckBox);

                upper.setText(item.getName());
                lower.setText(item.getStatusText());

                if (item.getStatusCode() == UpdateItem.UP_TO_DATE) {
                    cb.setVisibility(View.GONE);
                } else {
                    cb.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
                    cb.setChecked(item.isSelected());
                }

                ProgressBar pb = (ProgressBar)row.findViewById(R.id.UpdateProgress);
                pb.setVisibility(View.GONE);
            }
            return row;
        }

    } // end inner class UpdateListAdapter
}


edit: I'm still having this problem. I'm cheating and adding onClick handlers to the textviews but it seems extremely stupid that my onListItemClick() function is not being called at all when I am not clicking on my checkbox.
