An adapter to create Android RecyclerViews with sections, providing headers and footers.

Usage

In order to use this library, you need to extend SectionedRecyclerView<H, VH, F> where:

  • H is a class extending RecyclerView.ViewHolder to hold the view for section headers.
  • VH is a class extending RecyclerView.ViewHolder to hold the view for the regular items in the view.
  • F is a class extending RecyclerView.ViewHolder to hold the view for section footers.

According to the sample published in this repository:

    1. Create a class extending SectionedRecyclerView:
public class CountSectionAdapter extends SectionedRecyclerViewAdapter<CountHeaderViewHolder,
        CountItemViewHolder,
        CountFooterViewHolder>
    1. Implement the corresponding methods:
@Override
protected int getItemCountForSection(int section) {
    return section + 1;
}

@Override
protected int getSectionCount() {
    return 5;
}

@Override
protected boolean hasFooterInSection(int section) {
    return true;
}

protected LayoutInflater getLayoutInflater(){
    return LayoutInflater.from(context);
}

@Override
protected CountHeaderViewHolder onCreateSectionHeaderViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    View view = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.view_count_header, parent, false);
    return new CountHeaderViewHolder(view);
}

@Override
protected CountFooterViewHolder onCreateSectionFooterViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    View view = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.view_count_footer, parent, false);
    return new CountFooterViewHolder(view);
}

@Override
protected CountItemViewHolder onCreateItemViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    View view = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.view_count_item, parent, false);
    return new CountItemViewHolder(view);
}

@Override
protected void onBindSectionHeaderViewHolder(CountHeaderViewHolder holder, int section) {
    holder.render("Section " + (section + 1));
}

@Override
protected void onBindSectionFooterViewHolder(CountFooterViewHolder holder, int section) {
    holder.render("Footer " + (section + 1));
}

protected int[] colors = new int[]{0xfff44336, 0xff2196f3, 0xff009688, 0xff8bc34a, 0xffff9800};
@Override
protected void onBindItemViewHolder(CountItemViewHolder holder, int section, int position) {
    holder.render(String.valueOf(position + 1), colors[section]);
}
    1. If you use a GridLayoutManager, you need to set it a SectionedSpanSizeLookup to make sure that headers and footers span the whole width of the RecyclerView:
GridLayoutManager layoutManager = new GridLayoutManager(this, 2);
SectionedSpanSizeLookup lookup = new SectionedSpanSizeLookup(adapter, layoutManager);
layoutManager.setSpanSizeLookup(lookup);
recycler.setLayoutManager(layoutManager);
    1. Your result will look like this:

Even simpler

Most times you will need a simpler version of this adapter, where there are no footers and your headers will only be a title. For those cases, you have SimpleSectionedAdapter<VH>, where VH is a class extending ViewHolder to hold the view of the regular items in your RecyclerView.

In this case, you will have to implement the following methods:

@Override
protected String getSectionHeaderTitle(int section) {
    return section == 0 ? "Today" : "Tomorrow";
}

@Override
protected int getSectionCount() {
    return 2;
}

@Override
protected int getItemCountForSection(int section) {
    return 3;
}

@Override
protected AgendaItemViewHolder onCreateItemViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
    LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext());
    View view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.view_agenda_item, parent, false);
    return new AgendaItemViewHolder(view);
}

protected String[][] agenda = {{"Meeting", "Phone call", "Interview"},
            {"Basket match", "Grocery shopping", "Taking a nap"}};

@Override
protected void onBindItemViewHolder(AgendaItemViewHolder holder, int section, int position) {
    holder.render(agenda[section][position]);
}

Your result will look like this:

Get it!

SectionedRecyclerView is available through JCenter. To be able to use this library in your project, add the following dependency to your build.gradle file:

dependencies{
	compile 'com.truizlop.sectionedrecyclerview:library:1.2.0'
