Android Week View

Android Week View

Android Week View is an android library to display calendars (week view or day view) within the app. It supports custom styling.


  • Week view calendar
  • Day view calendar
  • Custom styling
  • Horizontal and vertical scrolling
  • Infinite horizontal scrolling
  • Live preview of custom styling in xml preview window

Who uses it


  1. Import the library into your project.
  • Grab via maven

  • Grab via gradle

    compile 'com.github.alamkanak:android-week-view:1.2.6'
  1. Add WeekView in your xml layout.

  2. Write the following code in your java file.

    // Get a reference for the week view in the layout.
    mWeekView = (WeekView) findViewById(;
    // Set an action when any event is clicked.
    // The week view has infinite scrolling horizontally. We have to provide the events of a
    // month every time the month changes on the week view.
    // Set long press listener for events.
  3. Implement WeekView.MonthChangeListener, WeekView.EventClickListener, WeekView.EventLongPressListener according to your need.

  4. Provide the events for the WeekView in WeekView.MonthChangeListener.onMonthChange() callback. Please remember that the calendar pre-loads events of three consecutive months to enable lag-free scrolling.

    MonthLoader.MonthChangeListener mMonthChangeListener = new MonthLoader.MonthChangeListener() {
        public List<WeekViewEvent> onMonthChange(int newYear, int newMonth) {
            // Populate the week view with some events.
            List<WeekViewEvent> events = getEvents(newYear, newMonth);
            return events;


You can customize the look of the WeekView in xml. Use the following attributes in xml. All these attributes also have getters and setters to enable you to change the style dynamically.

Use the following interfaces according to your need.

  • mWeekView.setOnEventClickListener() to get a callback when an event is clicked
