Usage

To use HeaderRecyclerView in your application you have to follow this steps:

  • 1 - Create a class extending from HeaderRecyclerViewAdapter:
public class DragonBallAdapter extends HeaderRecyclerViewAdapter<RecyclerView.ViewHolder, DragonBallHeader, DragonBallCharacter, DragonBallFooter> {

  • 2 - Implement onCreateHeaderViewHolder, onCreateItemViewHolder,onCreateFooterViewHolder , onBindHeaderViewHolder, onBindItemViewHOlder and onBindFooterViewHolder to create your RecyclerView.ViewHolder instances and draw your rows:

If you don't use header or footer, you can ignore overriding corresponding createViewHolder and bindViewHolder method

@Override
  protected RecyclerView.ViewHolder onCreateHeaderViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    LayoutInflater inflater = getLayoutInflater(parent);
    View headerView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.row_dragon_ball_header, parent, false);
    return new HeaderViewHolder(headerView);
  }

  @Override
  protected RecyclerView.ViewHolder onCreateItemViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    LayoutInflater inflater = getLayoutInflater(parent);
    View characterView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.row_dragon_ball_character, parent, false);
    return new CharacterViewHolder(characterView);
  }

  @Override
  protected RecyclerView.ViewHolder onCreateFooterViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    LayoutInflater inflater = getLayoutInflater(parent);
    View footerView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.row_dragon_ball_footer, parent, false);
    return new FooterViewHolder(footerView);
  }

  @Override protected void onBindHeaderViewHolder(RecyclerView.ViewHolder holder, int position) {
    DragonBallHeader header = getHeader();
    HeaderViewHolder headerViewHolder = (HeaderViewHolder) holder;
    headerViewHolder.render(header);
  }

  @Override protected void onBindItemViewHolder(RecyclerView.ViewHolder holder, int position) {
    DragonBallCharacter character = getItem(position);
    CharacterViewHolder characterViewHolder = (CharacterViewHolder) holder;
    characterViewHolder.render(character);
  }

  @Override protected void onBindFooterViewHolder(RecyclerView.ViewHolder holder, int position) {
    DragonBallFooter footer = getFooter();
    FooterViewHolder footerViewHolder = (FooterViewHolder) holder;
    footerViewHolder.render(footer);
  }
  • 3 - Configure your RecyclerView widget with this layout:
  List<DragonBallCharacter> characters = getDragonBallCharacters();
  DragonBallHeader header = getHeader(characters);
  DragonBallFooter footer = getFooter();
  adapter.setHeader(header);
  adapter.setFooter(footer);
  adapter.setItems(characters);
  recyclerView.setAdapter(adapter);
  • 4 - If you are using a GridLayoutManager instead of a LinearLayoutManager remember you'll have to configure the SpanSizeLookup used in the LayoutManager instance. If you are using HeaderRecyclerView with a GridLayoutManager you can create an instance of HeaderSpanSizeLookup and configure your LayoutManager instance:
  GridLayoutManager layoutManager = new GridLayoutManager(this, NUMBER_OF_COLUMNS);
  HeaderSpanSizeLookup headerSpanSizeLookup = new HeaderSpanSizeLookup(adapter, layoutManager);
  layoutManager.setSpanSizeLookup(headerSpanSizeLookup);
  • 5 - You can use following method to handle view life cycle event:
    @Override
    protected void onHeaderViewRecycled(VH holder) {
    }

    @Override
    protected void onItemViewRecycled(VH holder) {
    }

    @Override
    protected void onFooterViewRecycled(VH holder) {
    }

Add it to your project

Add HeaderRecyclerView dependency to your build.gradle file

dependencies{
    compile 'com.karumi:headerrecyclerview:1.1.0'
}

or to your pom.xml if you are using Maven instead of Gradle

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.karumi</groupId>
    <artifactId>headerrecyclerview</artifactId>
    <version>1.1.0</version>
    <type>aar</type>
</dependency>
