Simple Android grid example using RecyclerView with GridLayoutManager like the old GridView

0 votes

I know that RecyclerView has replaced the functionality of the old ListView and GridView. I am looking for a very basic example that shows a minimal grid setup using RecyclerView. I am not looking for long tutorial style explanations, just a minimal example. I imagine the simplest grid that mimics the old GridView would consist of the following features:

  • multiple cells per row
  • single view in each cell
  • responds to click events

This is a simple way from XML only

spanCount for the number of columns

layoutManager for making it grid or linear(Vertical or Horizontal)

<androidx.recyclerview.widget.RecyclerView
        android:id="@+id/personListRecyclerView"
        android:layout_width="0dp"
        android:layout_height="0dp"
        app:layoutManager="androidx.recyclerview.widget.GridLayoutManager"
        app:spanCount="2"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintHorizontal_bias="0.5"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />
