Description

Spinner is like a drop-down menu that provides multiple options in the list and selects anyone. I have created a spinner which is used to bind with ArrayAdapter class. ArrayAdapter class is used to store string array and display into Spinner. It provides scrolling view through which the user can get the desired value. It is a subclass of AsbSpinner. It is associated with AdapterView so, we are using an Adapter class.
