NeverEmptyListView

Android Arsenal

This custom listview basically shows a holder view when it's adapter is empty. For example, you may fetch list datas from network and refresh your adapter with coming data. If the data is empty, your listview shows a huge blank space. With this custom listview, you can show a holder view instead of blank space and your design looks prettier.(Your minimum sdk should be 15 and higher)

Usage

1)First of all, add below in your build.gradle at the end of repositories:

repositories {
    // ...
    maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
}

Add below dependency also.

compile 'com.github.mskurt:NeverEmptyListView:v1.0.1' 

2)Add the view to your layout xml. You must use features which are belong to NeverEmptyListView with custom namespace. It is recommended to use square size image for holderImageBackground.

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

    <net.mskurt.neveremptylistviewlibrary.NeverEmptyListView
        xmlns:custom="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
        android:id="@+id/listview"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        custom:holderTextTopMargin="20dp"
        custom:holderBackgroundColor="#ffffff"
        custom:holderTextFontSize="9sp"
        custom:holderTextColor="#000000"
        custom:holderText="This is holder text."
        custom:holderImageBackground="@drawable/an_example_image"/>

</RelativeLayout>

3)Now you can set an adapter which has no item to your NeverEmptyListView.

//Create an empty adapter
String[] values={};
ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, android.R.id.text1, values);

//Set NeverEmptyListView's adapter
NeverEmptyListView neverEmptyListView=(NeverEmptyListView)findViewById(R.id.listview);
neverEmptyListView.setAdapter(adapter);

4)You can set a click listener for holder to do anything.

neverEmptyListView.setHolderClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onClick(View v) {
        //Do anything here
    }
});

5)If you want to use notifyDataSetChange method of adapter, you should do it like below.

neverEmptyListView.notifyDataSetChanged(YOUR_ADAPTER);

6)If you need the listview at runtime (NeverEmptyListView is a custom view which contains a listview), you can get it like below.

neverEmptyListView.getListview();

For example, you can get the listview and setOnItemClickListener to it.

neverEmptyListView.getListview().setOnItemClickListener(new AdapterView.OnItemClickListener() {
     @Override
     public void onItemClick(AdapterView<?> parent, View view, int position, long id) {

    }
});

Holder View Customizing

Holder view is mostly customizable. You can use below feature list.

alt tag

holderImageBackground : color or drawable reference
holderImageSize : dimension in dp or px
holderTextRightLeftMargin : dimension in dp or px
holderTextTopMargin : dimension in dp or px
holderTextFontSize : dimension in sp
holderText : harcoded string or string reference
holderTextColor : hardcoded color or color reference
holderBackgroundColor : hardcoded color or color reference

You can change these features at runtime

setHolderImageBackground(int drawableId)
setHolderImageSize(int sizePixel)
getHolderImageSize()
setHolderText(String text)
getHolderText()
setHolderTextColor(int color)
setHolderTextFontSize(int unit,float size)
setHolderTextTypeFace(Typeface typeFace)
setHolderTextLeftRightMargin(int marginPixel)
setHolderTextTopMargin(int marginPixel)
setHolderBackgroundColor(int color)

Warning

If you want to use listview's basic attributes in xml, you should use it with custom namespace like below.

custom:listviewDivider
custom:listviewDividerHeight
custom:listviewFooterDividersEnabled
custom:listviewHeaderDividersEnabled
custom:listviewCacheColorHint
custom:listviewDrawSelectorOnTop
custom:listviewScrollingCache
custom:listviewFastScrollEnabled
custom:listviewChoiceMode
