Recycler Bubble

Provides fast scroll and section indexer for recycler view. Uses a different mechanism than similar libraries to provide smooth movement of scroller handle when scrolling the list. Can be used with vertical and horizontal RecyclerViews. You can style it or even use a custom layout and animations for your fast scroll handle and bubble.

Usage

Minimal working example

In your layout file:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView
        android:id="@+id/recyclerview"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        />

    <com.futuremind.recyclerviewfastscroll.FastScroller
        android:id="@+id/fastscroll"
        android:orientation="vertical"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_alignParentRight="true"/>

</RelativeLayout>

In Activity/Fragment:

        recyclerView = (RecyclerView) findViewById(R.id.recyclerview);
        fastScroller = (FastScroller) findViewById(R.id.fastscroll);
        recyclerView.setLayoutManager(new LinearLayoutManager(this));
        recyclerView.setAdapter(adapter);

        //has to be called AFTER RecyclerView.setAdapter()
        fastScroller.setRecyclerView(recyclerView);

In your RecyclerView.Adapter

        public class MyAdapter ... implements SectionTitleProvider{
            
            ...
            
            @Override
            public String getSectionTitle(int position) {
                //this String will be shown in a bubble for specified position
                return getItem(position).substring(0, 1);
            }
            
        }

Note: You have to populate your adapter with enough items for the FastScroll to show. I has an auto-hide mechanism in case there is nothing to scroll.

Horizontal orientation

You can use this library with horizontal LayoutManager. To do it use android:orientation="horizontal" attribute:

    <com.futuremind.recyclerviewfastscroll.FastScroller
        android:id="@+id/fastscroll"
        android:orientation="horizontal"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

Styling

Styling was introduced in version 0.1.5 with a limited set of styleable attributes. More are on their way.

You can style the attributes in the xml layout:

    <com.futuremind.recyclerviewfastscroll.FastScroller
           ...
           app:fastscroll__handleColor="#8f93d1"
           app:fastscroll__bubbleColor="#5e64ce"
           app:fastscroll__bubbleTextAppearance="@style/StyledScrollerTextAppearance"
           />

Or directly in the code:

         fastScroller.setBubbleColor(0xffff0000);
         fastScroller.setHandleColor(0xffff0000);
         fastScroller.setBubbleTextAppearance(R.style.StyledScrollerTextAppearance);

See the example code for more info.

Custom views

You can set custom layouts and animations for your handle and bubble, using:

        myViewProvider = new MyScrollerViewProvider();
        fastScroller.setViewProvider(myViewProvider);

For more information, consult CustomScrollerViewProvider in the example code.
