Is there any way to convert
SimpleCursorAdapter to ArrayAdapter

I am binding data in spinner and when I want to get the text of spinner ,
I am getting cursor id ,

this is my code to get data and binding in spinner

subSpin = (Spinner) findViewById(;
try {
	cursor = dbHelper.getSpinnerData();
	String[] from = new String[] { DatabaseHelper.sub_id,
			DatabaseHelper.sub_name };
	int[] to = new int[] { 0, };
	SimpleCursorAdapter subAdapter = new SimpleCursorAdapter(
	AddResultScreen.this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1,cursor, from, to);
	subSpin.setOnItemSelectedListener(new OnItemSelectedListener() {
	public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> selectedItem,
				View arg1, int pos, long arg3) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub

		subjectName = subSpin.getSelectedItem().toString();
		public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView<?> arg0) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub

	} catch (Exception e) {
	// TODO: handle exception

I solved my self this ,

Don't get data in cursor but get data in List

there is when you are getting data from sqlite database ,

Bind cursor in List
like this you can do
List<string> labels = new ArrayList<string>;
String addData = cursot.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex("ColumnName"));
