So I'm creating an application that will use current gps location (lat/long). The user will have to select a specified radius (.5-100 miles) from a Spinner. Then, when clicked, there will be a Button (onClickListener()) that will populate the locations from a SQLite database, in that set radius, to a ListView. From there, select an item from the ListView that will call an Activity (Intent).

I have the ListView populating data from the database, but I'm having issues with it populating from an onClick event (Button). Furthermore, how can I get the current location to compare the locations listed in the database based on the set radius (from the Spinner), and show the ones that match in the ListView. I would REALLY appreciate your suggestions/answers. Thanks!

SN: I have it displaying the current location. Here's my code.
