RecyclerViewInjectorAdapter

RecyclerViewInjectorAdapter wraps your regular RecyclerView.Adapter and adds possibility to inject custom views on desired position without hassle.

Overview

  • Tested in production - over 1.000.000 installs in the HolidayCheck App
  • Works with stable IDs & non-stable ID adapters
  • In most cases, requires no changes to your adapter (see Caution)
  • Supports multiple view injections
  • Supports all items animations
  • Supports Android 15+

Demo

Add it to your Project

Include the library in your build.gradle

dependencies {
    compile 'com.holidaycheck:recyclerviewinjectoradapter:1.0.3'
}

or to your pom.xml if you are using Maven

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.holidaycheck</groupId>
    <artifactId>recyclerviewinjectoradapter</artifactId>
    <version>1.0.3</version>
    <type>aar</type>
</dependency>

Configuration

To enable injecting views you need to wrap your regular adapter with RecyclerViewInjectorAdapter and set it to RecyclerView.

Assuming that your code looks similar to this

MyAdapter adapter = new MyAdapter();

RecyclerView recyclerView = findViewById(R.id.recycler_view);
recyclerView.setAdapter(adapter)

You should change it to

MyAdapter adapter = new MyAdapter();
RecyclerViewInjectorAdapter injectorAdapter = new RecyclerViewInjectorAdapter(adapter)

RecyclerView recyclerView = findViewById(R.id.recycler_view);
recyclerView.setAdapter(injectorAdapter)

Usage

After the configuration, you can inject views

injectorAdapter.inject(new InjectedViewCreator() {
    @Override
    public View createView() {
        Button button = new Button(getApplicationContext());
        button.setText("This is injected Button on position 5");
        return button;
    }
}, 5);

Remove injected view by passing position

injectorAdapter.removeInjectedView(5);

There are some methods to control the visibility of injected views

Method Description
setShowInjectedViews(boolean showInjectedViews) Allows to hide or show all injected views
setDisplayInjectedViewsOnEmptyChildAdapter(boolean display) Decides if injected views should be displayed on empty child adapter
setDisplayInjectedViewsOnLowerPosition(boolean display) Decides if injected views should be displayed on lower position than desired. For example, a view is injected on position 10, but child adapter has only 5 items.

For more details take a look at the javadoc.

Caution

  • Every update that refers to the regular item should be dispatched to your child adapter.
  • getAdapterPosition() method of your RecyclerView.ViewHolder now returns position that include also injected views below that position. To get the position without injected views included, please use int realChildAdapterPosition = injectorAdapter.toChildAdapterPosition(getAdapterPosition()) or get rid of getAdapterPosition() by passing reference to your data to ViewHolder and then getting position from your underlying data structure.
