AndroidStaggeredGrid

An Android staggered grid view which supports multiple columns with rows of varying sizes.

The StaggeredGridView was developed due to requirements for the Etsy app not met by any existing Android libraries. Namely a stable implementation with the ability to have a different number of columns in landscape & portrait, to sync grid position across orientation changes and support for headers & footers.

Staggered Grid Sample Image

Features

  • Configurable column count for portrait and landscape orientations.
  • Sync'd row position across orientation changes.
  • Configurable item margin.
  • Support for headers & footers.
  • Internal padding that does not effect the header & footer.
  • Extends AbsListView - "mostly"
  • Supports AbsListView.OnScrollListener

Setup

The library was built for and tested on Android version 2.3.3(SDK 10) and above. It could be modified to support older versions if required.

To setup import the /library project into your Android Studio project and add it as a dependency in your build.gradle.

The library is currently configured to be built via Gradle only. It has the following dependencies:

  • Android Gradle plugin v0.6.3 - com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.6.3
  • Android Support Library v19 - com.android.support:support-v4:19.0.+

Usage

Please see the /sample app for a more detailed code example of how to use the library.

  1. Add the StaggeredGridView to the layout you want to show.
    <FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent">
    
        <com.etsy.android.grid.StaggeredGridView
            android:id="@+id/grid_view"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            app:item_margin="8dp"
            app:column_count_portrait="2"
            app:column_count_landscape="3" />
    
    </FrameLayout>
  2. Configure attributes.
  • item_margin - The margin around each grid item (default 0dp).
  • column_count_portrait - The number of columns displayed when the grid is in portrait (default 2).
  • column_count_landscape - The number of columns displayed when the grid is in landscape (default 3).
  • grid_paddingLeft - Padding to the left of the grid. Does not apply to headers and footers (default 0).
  • grid_paddingRight - Padding to the right of the grid. Does not apply to headers and footers (default 0).
  • grid_paddingTop - Padding to the top of the grid. Does not apply to headers and footers (default 0).
  • grid_paddingBottom - Padding to the bottom of the grid. Does not apply to headers and footers (default 0).
  1. Setup an adapter just like you would with a GridView/ListView.
    ListAdapter adapter = ...;
    
    StaggeredGridView gridView = (StaggeredGridView) findViewById(R.id.grid_view);
    
    gridView.setAdapter(adapter);

NOTE: As column widths change on orientation change, the grid view expects that all children maintain their own width to height ratio. To assist with this the project includes the DynamicHeightImageView as an example of a view that measures its height based on its width.

TODO

The StaggeredGridView does not support the following:

  • Scroll bars
  • Row dividers
  • Edge effect
  • Fading edge
  • Item selection or long press
  • Overscroll
