Expandable Listview inside scrollview

Expandable listview inside scrollview

When we have a ListView expandable inside ScrollView, we must make this in our layout, always expandable listview must be the last view in our layout:

<ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/activity_expandable_scroll_view"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fillViewport="true">

    <LinearLayout
        android:id="@+id/LinearLayout1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:orientation="vertical"
        android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
        android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
        android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
        android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin">

<!-- your code --->

 <ExpandableListView
            android:id="@+id/activity_expandable_list_view"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:background="@color/white"/>

    </LinearLayout>
</ScrollView>

In your onCreate

mListView = (ExpandableListView) findViewById(R.id.activity_expandable_list_view);
        MyExpandableListAdapter adapter = new MyExpandableListAdapter(this,
                mGroups);
        mListView.setAdapter(adapter);
        mListView.setOnGroupClickListener(new ExpandableListView.OnGroupClickListener() {

            @Override
            public boolean onGroupClick(ExpandableListView parent, View v,
                                        int groupPosition, long id) {
                setListViewHeight(parent, groupPosition);
                return false;
            }
        });

You need this function:

    private void setListViewHeight(ExpandableListView listView,
                                   int group) {
        ExpandableListAdapter listAdapter = (ExpandableListAdapter) listView.getExpandableListAdapter();
        int totalHeight = 0;
        int desiredWidth = View.MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(listView.getWidth(),
                View.MeasureSpec.EXACTLY);
        for (int i = 0; i < listAdapter.getGroupCount(); i++) {
            View groupItem = listAdapter.getGroupView(i, false, null, listView);
            groupItem.measure(desiredWidth, View.MeasureSpec.UNSPECIFIED);

            totalHeight += groupItem.getMeasuredHeight();

            if (((listView.isGroupExpanded(i)) && (i != group))
                    || ((!listView.isGroupExpanded(i)) && (i == group))) {
                for (int j = 0; j < listAdapter.getChildrenCount(i); j++) {
                    View listItem = listAdapter.getChildView(i, j, false, null,
                            listView);
                    listItem.measure(desiredWidth, View.MeasureSpec.UNSPECIFIED);

                    totalHeight += listItem.getMeasuredHeight();

                }
            }
        }

        ViewGroup.LayoutParams params = listView.getLayoutParams();
        int height = totalHeight
                + (listView.getDividerHeight() * (listAdapter.getGroupCount() - 1));
        if (height < 10)
            height = 200;
        params.height = height;
        listView.setLayoutParams(params);
        listView.requestLayout();

    }

ListView inside ScrollView II

See only one item

You do not have to do anything special in layout.xml file nor handle anything on the parent ScrollView. You only have to handle the child ListView. You can also use this code to use any type of child view inside a ScrollView & perform Touch operations.

ScrollView inside ListView

Just add these lines of code in your java class :

listView.setOnTouchListener(new ListView.OnTouchListener() {
            @Override
            public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
                // Disallow the touch request for parent scroll on touch of child view
                v.getParent().requestDisallowInterceptTouchEvent(true);
                return false;
            }
        });

ListView inside ScrollView

You Create Custom ListView Which is non Scrollable

Download code

public class NonScrollListView extends ListView {

    public NonScrollListView(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }
    public NonScrollListView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
    }
    public NonScrollListView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) {
        super(context, attrs, defStyle);
    }
    @Override
    public void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec) {
        int heightMeasureSpec_custom = View.MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(
                Integer.MAX_VALUE >> 2, View.MeasureSpec.AT_MOST);
        super.onMeasure(widthMeasureSpec, heightMeasureSpec_custom);
        ViewGroup.LayoutParams params = getLayoutParams();
        params.height = getMeasuredHeight();
    }
}

In Your Layout File

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ScrollView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fadingEdgeLength="0dp"
    android:fillViewport="true"
    android:overScrollMode="never"
    android:scrollbars="none" >

    <RelativeLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

        <!-- com.Example Changed with your Package name -->

        <com.thedeveloperworldisyours.view.NonScrollListView
            android:id="@+id/lv_nonscroll_list"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" >
        </com.thedeveloperworldisyours.view.NonScrollListView>

        <RelativeLayout
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_below="@+id/lv_nonscroll_list" >

            <!-- Your another layout in scroll view -->

        </RelativeLayout>
    </RelativeLayout>

</ScrollView>

In Java File

Create a object of your customListview instead of ListView like :

NonScrollListView non_scroll_list = (NonScrollListView) findViewById(R.id.lv_nonscroll_list);
