    Default How i can create a ListView from a Selection

    Hi, im trying to create a listview from a selection of a AutoCompleteTextView

    here's my code

    final AutoCompleteTextView editText = findViewById(R.id.actv);
    ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, names);

    editText.setOnItemClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {
    public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int position, long id) {

    // select ACTV (AutoCompleteTextView)
    String authorPicked = parent.getItemAtPosition(position).toString();
    final List<News> escritor = articlesProvider.getArticlesByAuthorName(authorPic ked);

    Toast toast = Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), authorPicked, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT);

    ArrayList<String> articulos = new ArrayList<>();
    for(Article author : escritor) {


    ListView myList;
    myList = findViewById(R.id.ListView1);
    ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(MainActivity.this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, articulos);
