Horizontal ListView on Android

Horizontal ListView on Android

Actually android doesn’t have a listView horizontal. So We will see how to make.

horizontal

We need these things:
*Activity and layout.
*Adapter and list_item.
*Data object.
*DividerItemDecoration (it divides our item).

As per Android Documentaion recyclerview is the new way to organize the items in listview and to be displayed horizontally.

Advantages:

*Since by using Recyclerview Adapter, ViewHolder pattern is automatically implemented
*Animation is easy to perform
*Many more features

The code is in GitHub

In your dependencies you add this line

compile "com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:24.0.0"

dimens.xml

<resources>
    <!-- Default screen margins, per the Android Design guidelines. -->
    <dimen name="activity_main_horizontal_margin">16dp</dimen>
    <dimen name="activity_main_vertical_margin">16dp</dimen>
      
    <dimen name="activity_main_height">150dp</dimen>
</resources>

list_item.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="match_parent"

Our Activity or Fragment

    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                             Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        // Inflate the layout for this fragment
        View view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.horizontal_fragment, container, false);

        mLayoutManager = new LinearLayoutManager(getActivity(),LinearLayoutManager.HORIZONTAL, false);//new LinearLayoutManager(this);
        mRecyclerView.setLayoutManager(mLayoutManager);


        mAdapter = new HorizontalRecyclerViewAdapter(getDataSet());
        mRecyclerView.setAdapter(mAdapter);
        RecyclerView.ItemDecoration itemDecoration =
                new DividerItemDecoration(getActivity(), LinearLayoutManager.HORIZONTAL);
        mRecyclerView.addItemDecoration(itemDecoration);
        mAdapter.setOnItemClickListener(this);


        // Code to Add an item with default animation
        //((MyRecyclerViewAdapter) mAdapter).addItem(obj, index);

        // Code to remove an item with default animation
        //((MyRecyclerViewAdapter) mAdapter).deleteItem(index);


        return view;
    }

    private ArrayList<HorizontalData> getDataSet() {
        ArrayList results = new ArrayList<>();
        for (int index = 0; index < 20; index++) {
            HorizontalData obj = new HorizontalData("Some Primary Text " + index,
                    "Secondary " + index);
            results.add(index, obj);
        }
        return results;
    }


    @Override
    public void onItemClick(int position, View v) {
        Log.i(LOG_TAG, " Clicked on Item " + position);
    }
}

Now We have our horizontal ListView.

Vertical and horizontal scrolling

Sometimes you need to show a lot of information in a small space,

for example in TableLayout, you can to make a vertical and horizontal scrolling.

 <ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
                  android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                  android:layout_height="wrap_content">

    <HorizontalScrollView 
                  android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                  android:layout_height="fill_parent">

         <TableLayout
                  android:id="@+id/amortization"
                  android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                  android:layout_height="wrap_content">

              <TableRow
                  android:background="#3366FF">
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/tableRow_1"
                       android:background="#FFFFFF"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_1"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_2"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_3"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView

                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_5"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_6"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_7"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_8"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
                  <TextView
                       android:text="@string/hello_world_9"
                       android:padding="3dip"/>
              </TableRow>
         </TableLayout>
    </HorizontalScrollView>
</ScrollView>
