selection

I have a RecyclerView with an TextView text box and a cross button ImageView. I have a button outside of the recyclerview that makes the cross button ImageView visible / gone.

I'm looking to remove an item from the recylerview, when that items cross button ImageView is pressed.

My adapter:

public class MyAdapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<MyAdapter.ViewHolder> implements View.OnClickListener, View.OnLongClickListener {

    private ArrayList<String> mDataset;
    private static Context sContext;

    public MyAdapter(Context context, ArrayList<String> myDataset) {
        mDataset = myDataset;
        sContext = context;
    }

    @Override
    public MyAdapter.ViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent,int viewType) {
        View v = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.my_text_view, parent, false);

        ViewHolder holder = new ViewHolder(v);
        holder.mNameTextView.setOnClickListener(MyAdapter.this);
        holder.mNameTextView.setOnLongClickListener(MyAdapter.this);

        holder.mNameTextView.setTag(holder);

        return holder;
    }

    @Override
    public void onBindViewHolder(ViewHolder holder, int position) {

        holder.mNameTextView.setText(mDataset.get(position));

    }

    @Override
    public int getItemCount() {
        return mDataset.size();
    }


    @Override
    public void onClick(View view) {
        ViewHolder holder = (ViewHolder) view.getTag();
        if (view.getId() == holder.mNameTextView.getId()) {
            Toast.makeText(sContext, holder.mNameTextView.getText(), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
    }


    @Override
    public boolean onLongClick(View view) {
        ViewHolder holder = (ViewHolder) view.getTag();
        if (view.getId() == holder.mNameTextView.getId()) {
            mDataset.remove(holder.getPosition());

            notifyDataSetChanged();

            Toast.makeText(sContext, "Item " + holder.mNameTextView.getText() + " has been removed from list",
                    Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
        return false;
    }

    public static class ViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
        public TextView mNumberRowTextView;
        public TextView mNameTextView;


        public ViewHolder(View v) {
            super(v);

            mNameTextView = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.nameTextView);
        }
    }
}

My layout is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:orientation="horizontal"
    android:gravity="center_vertical"
    android:id="@+id/layout">

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/nameTextView"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:textSize="18sp"
        android:padding="5dp"
        android:background="@drawable/greyline"/>

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/crossButton"
        android:layout_width="16dp"
        android:layout_height="16dp"
        android:visibility="gone"
        android:layout_marginLeft="50dp"
        android:src="@drawable/cross" />
</LinearLayout>

How can I get something like an onClick working for my crossButton ImageView? Is there a better way? Maybe changing the whole item onclick into a remove the item? The recyclerview shows a list of locations that need to be edited. Any technical advice or comments / suggestions on best implementation would be hugely appreciated.

Solution 1

I have done something similar. In your MyAdapter:

public class ViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder implements View.OnClickListener{
    public CardView mCardView;
    public TextView mTextViewTitle;
    public TextView mTextViewContent;
    public ImageView mImageViewContentPic;
    
    public ImageView imgViewRemoveIcon;
    public ViewHolder(View v) {
        super(v);
        mCardView = (CardView) v.findViewById(R.id.card_view);
        mTextViewTitle = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.item_title);
        mTextViewContent = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.item_content);
        mImageViewContentPic = (ImageView) v.findViewById(R.id.item_content_pic);
        //......
        imgViewRemoveIcon = (ImageView) v.findViewById(R.id.remove_icon);

        mTextViewContent.setOnClickListener(this);
        imgViewRemoveIcon.setOnClickListener(this);
        v.setOnClickListener(this);
        mTextViewContent.setOnLongClickListener(new View.OnLongClickListener() {
            @Override
            public boolean onLongClick(View view) {
                if (mItemClickListener != null) {
                    mItemClickListener.onItemClick(view, getPosition());
                }
                return false;
            }
        });
    }


    @Override
    public void onClick(View v) {
        //Log.d("View: ", v.toString());
        //Toast.makeText(v.getContext(), mTextViewTitle.getText() + " position = " + getPosition(), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        if(v.equals(imgViewRemoveIcon)){
            removeAt(getPosition());
        }else if (mItemClickListener != null) {
            mItemClickListener.onItemClick(v, getPosition());
        }
    }
}

public void setOnItemClickListener(final OnItemClickListener mItemClickListener) {
    this.mItemClickListener = mItemClickListener;
}
public void removeAt(int position) {
    mDataset.remove(position);
    notifyItemRemoved(position);
    notifyItemRangeChanged(position, mDataSet.size());
}

Edit:

getPosition() is deprecated now, use getAdapterPosition() instead.

Solution 2

first of all, item should be removed from the list!

  mDataSet.remove(getAdapterPosition());

then:

  notifyItemRemoved(getAdapterPosition());
  notifyItemRangeChanged(getAdapterPosition(),mDataSet.size());

Solution 3

if still item not removed use this magic method :)

private void deleteItem(int position) {
        mDataSet.remove(position);
        notifyItemRemoved(position);
        notifyItemRangeChanged(position, mDataSet.size());
        holder.itemView.setVisibility(View.GONE);
}

Kotlin version

private fun deleteItem(position: Int) {
    mDataSet.removeAt(position)
    notifyItemRemoved(position)
    notifyItemRangeChanged(position, mDataSet.size)
    holder.itemView.visibility = View.GONE
}

The Problem

RecyclerView was built to display data in an efficient and responsive manner. Usually you have a dataset which is passed to your adapter and is looped through to display your data. Here your dataset is:

private ArrayList<String> mDataset;

The point is that RecyclerView is not connected to your dataset, and therefore is unaware of your dataset changes.

It just reads data once and displays it through your ViewHolder, but a change to your dataset will not propagate to your UI.

This means that whenever you make a deletion/addition on your data list, those changes won't be reflected to your RecyclerView directly. (i.e. you remove the item at index 5, but the 6th element remains in your recycler view).

A (old school) solution

RecyclerView exposes some methods for you to communicate your dataset changes, reflecting those changes directly on your list items.

The standard Android APIs allow you to bind the process of data removal (for the purpose of the question) with the process of View removal.

The methods we are talking about are:

notifyItemChanged(index: Int)
notifyItemInserted(index: Int)
notifyItemRemoved(index: Int)
notifyItemRangeChanged(startPosition: Int, itemCount: Int)
notifyItemRangeInserted(startPosition: Int, itemCount: Int)
notifyItemRangeRemoved(startPosition: Int, itemCount: Int)

A Complete (old school) Solution

If you don't properly specify what happens on each addition, change or removal of items, RecyclerView list items are animated unresponsively because of a lack of information about how to move the different views around the list.

The following code will allow RecyclerView to precisely play the animation with regards to the view that is being removed (And as a side note, it fixes any IndexOutOfBoundExceptions, marked by the stacktrace as "data inconsistency").

void remove(position: Int) {
    dataset.removeAt(position)
    notifyItemChanged(position)
    notifyItemRangeRemoved(position, 1)
}

Under the hood, if we look into RecyclerView we can find documentation explaining that the second parameter we pass to notifyItemRangeRemoved is the number of items that are removed from the dataset, not the total number of items (As wrongly reported in some others information sources).

    /**
     * Notify any registered observers that the <code>itemCount</code> items previously
     * located at <code>positionStart</code> have been removed from the data set. The items
     * previously located at and after <code>positionStart + itemCount</code> may now be found
     * at <code>oldPosition - itemCount</code>.
     *
     * <p>This is a structural change event. Representations of other existing items in the data
     * set are still considered up to date and will not be rebound, though their positions
     * may be altered.</p>
     *
     * @param positionStart Previous position of the first item that was removed
     * @param itemCount Number of items removed from the data set
     */
    public final void notifyItemRangeRemoved(int positionStart, int itemCount) {
        mObservable.notifyItemRangeRemoved(positionStart, itemCount);
    }

Open source solutions

You can let a library like FastAdapter, Epoxy or Groupie take care of the business, and even use an observable recycler view with data binding.

New ListAdapter

Google recently introduced a new way of writing the recycler view adapter, which works really well and supports reactive data.

It is a new approach and requires a bit of refactoring, but it is 100% worth switching to it, as it makes everything smoother.

here is the documentation, and here a medium article explaining it

Solution 5

Here are some visual supplemental examples. See my fuller answer for examples of adding and removing a range.

Add single item

Add "Pig" at index 2.

String item = "Pig";
int insertIndex = 2;
data.add(insertIndex, item);
adapter.notifyItemInserted(insertIndex);

Remove single item

Remove "Pig" from the list.

int removeIndex = 2;
data.remove(removeIndex);
adapter.notifyItemRemoved(removeIndex);

Solution 6

Possibly a duplicate answer but quite useful for me. You can implement the method given below in RecyclerView.Adapter<RecyclerView.ViewHolder> and can use this method as per your requirements, I hope it will work for you

public void removeItem(@NonNull Object object) {
        mDataSetList.remove(object);
        notifyDataSetChanged();
    }

Solution 7

I tried all the above answers, but inserting or removing items to recyclerview causes problem with the position in the dataSet. Ended up using delete(getAdapterPosition()); inside the viewHolder which worked great at finding the position of items.

Solution 8

The problem I had was I was removing an item from the list that was no longer associated with the adapter to make sure you are modifying the correct adapter you can implement a method like this in your adapter:

public void removeItemAtPosition(int position) {
    items.remove(position);
}

And call it in your fragment or activity like this:

adapter.removeItemAtPosition(position);

  public class MyAdapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<MyAdapter.MyViewHolder> {
private Context context;
private List<cardview_widgets> list;

public MyAdapter(Context context, List<cardview_widgets> list) {
    this.context = context;
    this.list = list;
}

@NonNull
@Override
public MyViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(@NonNull ViewGroup viewGroup, int i) {
    View view = LayoutInflater.from(this.context).inflate(R.layout.fragment1_one_item,
            viewGroup, false);
    return new MyViewHolder(view);
}

public static class MyViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
    TextView txtValue;
    TextView txtCategory;
    ImageView imgInorEx;
    ImageView imgCategory;
    TextView txtDate;

    public MyViewHolder(@NonNull View itemView) {
        super(itemView);
        txtValue= itemView.findViewById(R.id.id_values);
        txtCategory= itemView.findViewById(R.id.id_category);
        imgInorEx= itemView.findViewById(R.id.id_inorex);
        imgCategory= itemView.findViewById(R.id.id_imgcategory);
        txtDate= itemView.findViewById(R.id.id_date);
    }
}

@NonNull
@Override
public void onBindViewHolder(@NonNull final MyViewHolder myViewHolder, int i) {

    myViewHolder.txtValue.setText(String.valueOf(list.get(i).getValuee()));
    myViewHolder.txtCategory.setText(list.get(i).getCategory());
    myViewHolder.imgInorEx.setBackgroundColor(list.get(i).getImg_inorex());
    myViewHolder.imgCategory.setImageResource(list.get(i).getImg_category());
    myViewHolder.txtDate.setText(list.get(i).getDate());
    myViewHolder.itemView.setOnLongClickListener(new View.OnLongClickListener() {
        @Override
        public boolean onLongClick(View v) {
            list.remove(myViewHolder.getAdapterPosition());
            notifyDataSetChanged();
            return false;
        }
    });
}

@Override
public int getItemCount() {
    return list.size();
}}      

i hope this help you.

if you want to remove item you should do this: first remove item:

phones.remove(position);

in next step you should notify your recycler adapter that you remove an item by this code:

notifyItemRemoved(position);
notifyItemRangeChanged(position, phones.size());

but if you change an item do this: first change a parameter of your object like this:

Service s = services.get(position);
s.done = "Cancel service";
services.set(position,s);

or new it like this :

Service s = new Service();
services.set(position,s);

then notify your recycler adapter that you modify an item by this code:

notifyItemChanged(position);
notifyItemRangeChanged(position, services.size());

hope helps you.

  String str = arrayList.get(position);
  arrayList.remove(str);
  MyAdapter.this.notifyDataSetChanged();

Solution 12

To Method onBindViewHolder Write This Code

holder.remove.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                Cursor del=dbAdapter.ExecuteQ("delete from TblItem where Id="+values.get(position).getId());
                values.remove(position);
                notifyDataSetChanged();
            }
        });

Solution 13

Incase Anyone wants to implement something like this in Main class instead of Adapter class, you can use:

public void removeAt(int position) {
    peopleListUser.remove(position);

    friendsListRecycler.getAdapter().notifyItemRemoved(position);
    friendsListRecycler.getAdapter().notifyItemRangeChanged(position, peopleListUser.size());
}

where friendsListRecycler is the Adapter name

Solution 14

you must to remove this item from arrayList of data

myDataset.remove(holder.getAdapterPosition());
notifyItemRemoved(holder.getAdapterPosition());
notifyItemRangeChanged(holder.getAdapterPosition(), getItemCount());

Solution 15

 //////// set the position
 holder.cancel.setTag(position);


///// click to remove an item from recycler view and an array list
holder.cancel.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
          @Override
          public void onClick(View view) {

            int positionToRemove = (int)view.getTag(); //get the position of the view to delete stored in the tag
            mDataset.remove(positionToRemove);
            notifyDataSetChanged();
                }
            });

Solution 16

make interface into custom adapter class and handling click event on recycler view..

 onItemClickListner onItemClickListner;

public void setOnItemClickListner(CommentsAdapter.onItemClickListner onItemClickListner) {
    this.onItemClickListner = onItemClickListner;
}

public interface onItemClickListner {
    void onClick(Contact contact);//pass your object types.
}
    @Override
public void onBindViewHolder(ItemViewHolder holder, int position) {
    // below code handle click event on recycler view item.
    holder.itemView.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        @Override
        public void onClick(View view) {
            onItemClickListner.onClick(mContectList.get(position));
        }
    });
}

after define adapter and bind into recycler view called below code..

        adapter.setOnItemClickListner(new CommentsAdapter.onItemClickListner() {
        @Override
        public void onClick(Contact contact) {
            contectList.remove(contectList.get(contectList.indexOf(contact)));
            adapter.notifyDataSetChanged();
        }
    });
}

Solution 17

In case you are wondering like I did where can we get the adapter position in the method getadapterposition(); its in viewholder object.so you have to put your code like this

mdataset.remove(holder.getadapterposition());

Solution 18

In the activity:

mAdapter.updateAt(pos, text, completed);
mAdapter.removeAt(pos);

In the your adapter:

void removeAt(int position) {
    list.remove(position);
    notifyItemRemoved(position);
    notifyItemRangeChanged(position, list.size());
}

void updateAt(int position, String text, Boolean completed) {
    TodoEntity todoEntity = list.get(position);
    todoEntity.setText(text);
    todoEntity.setCompleted(completed);
    notifyItemChanged(position);
}

Solution 19

in 2022, after trying everything the whole internet given below is the answer

In MyViewHolder class

private myAdapter adapter;

inside MyViewHolder function initalise adapter

adapter = myAdapter.this

inside onclick

int position = getAdapterPosition()
list.remove(position);
            adapter.notifyItemRemoved(position);
