Introduction

This tutorial explains Expandiblelistview.

ExpandileListView

Expandiblelistview is a View that shows items in a vertically scrolling two-level list. The difference between ListView and Expandiblelistview is that it contains two levels that can expand two show children of a group.
In this tutorial we first extend the ExpandiblelistActivtiy class. Now we need an adapter like a list view to bind the data. So we use BaseExpandibleListAdapter that provides a child of a group when we expand it. Now first we need two layouts, one is to show a group row and another to show a child row in an expandible ListView.

In this class we cretae a group and its child by using it in an Arraylist and pass it to the constructor of the Adapter class where it will used by the getChidview method and getGroupview method to be shown on the screen.

  ArrayList<String> groupItem = new ArrayList<String>();

  ArrayList<Object> childItem = new ArrayList<Object>();

 

  public void setGroupData()

  {

      groupItem.add("Android Version");

      groupItem.add("Iphone Version");

  }

    public void setChildItem() {

        ArrayList<String> child = new ArrayList<String>();

        child.add("CupCake");

        child.add("Donut");

        child.add("Eclair");

        child.add("Froyo");

        childItem.add(child);

 

        child = new ArrayList<String>();

        child.add("Iphone OS 1.X");

        child.add("Iphone OS 2.X");

        child.add("Iphone OS 3.X");

        child.add("Iphone OS 4.X");

        childItem.add(child);

    }

 
Step 1

Create an XML file Activitymain.xml and write this:
 

<CheckedTextView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

                 android:id="@+id/textView1"

                 android:layout_width="wrap_content"

                 android:layout_height="60dp" android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"

                 android:gravity="center_vertical"

 

                 android:textColor="#45454545"

                 android:padding="10dp"

                 android:textSize="14sp"

                 android:textStyle="bold" />



Step 2

Create another XML file and write this:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

              xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

              android:layout_width="match_parent"

              android:layout_height="40dp"

              android:background="@android:color/black"

              android:clickable="true"

              android:orientation="vertical"

              android:paddingLeft="40dp"

              tools:context=".MainActivity" >

 

    <LinearLayout

            android:layout_width="match_parent"

            android:layout_height="39dp"

            android:gravity="center_vertical" >

 

 

        <TextView

                android:id="@+id/textView1"

                android:layout_width="wrap_content"

                android:layout_height="wrap_content"

                android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"

                android:textColor="#FFFFFF"

                android:textSize="14sp"

                android:textStyle="bold" />

    </LinearLayout>

 

    <View

            android:layout_width="match_parent"

            android:layout_height="1dp"

            android:background="@android:color/white" />

 

</LinearLayout>

 



Step 3

Create a Java class MainActivity.java and write this:
  
import android.app.ExpandableListActivity;
import android.content.Context;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.widget.ExpandableListView;
import android.widget.ExpandableListView.OnChildClickListener;

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class MainActivity extends ExpandableListActivity implements

        OnChildClickListener {

 

    @Override

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

        ExpandableListView expandbleLis = getExpandableListView();

        expandbleLis.setDividerHeight(2);

        expandbleLis.setGroupIndicator(null);

        expandbleLis.setClickable(true);

 

        setGroupData();

        setChildGroupData();

 

        NewAdapter mNewAdapter = new NewAdapter(groupItem, childItem);

        mNewAdapter

                .setInflater(

                        (LayoutInflater) getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE),

                        this);

        getExpandableListView().setAdapter(mNewAdapter);

        expandbleLis.setOnChildClickListener(this);

    }

 

    public void setGroupData() {

        groupItem.add("Android Versions");

        groupItem.add("Iphone versions");

    }

 

    ArrayList<String> groupItem = new ArrayList<String>();

    ArrayList<Object> childItem = new ArrayList<Object>();

 

    public void setChildGroupData() {

        /**

         * Add Data For TecthNology

         */

        ArrayList<String> child = new ArrayList<String>();

        child.add("Cupcake");

        child.add("Donut");

        child.add("Eclairs");

        child.add("Froyo");

        childItem.add(child);

 

        /**

         * Add Data For Mobile

         */

        child = new ArrayList<String>();

        child.add("Iphone OS 1.x");

        child.add("Iphone OS 2.x");

        child.add("Iphone OS 3.x");

        child.add("Iphone OS 4.x");

        childItem.add(child);

  }

}

 

Step 4

Create a Java class and write this:

 

import android.app.Activity;

import android.view.LayoutInflater;

import android.view.View;

import android.view.View.OnClickListener;

import android.view.ViewGroup;

import android.widget.BaseExpandableListAdapter;

import android.widget.CheckedTextView;

import android.widget.TextView;

import android.widget.Toast;

 

import java.util.ArrayList;

 

@SuppressWarnings("unchecked")

public class Adapter extends BaseExpandableListAdapter {

 

    public ArrayList<String> groupItem, tempChild;

    public ArrayList<Object> Childtem = new ArrayList<Object>();

    public LayoutInflater minflater;

    public Activity activity;

 

    public Adapter(ArrayList<String> grList, ArrayList<Object> childItem) {

        groupItem = grList;

        this.Childtem = childItem;

    }

 

    public void setInflater(LayoutInflater mInflater, Activity act) {

        this.minflater = mInflater;

        activity = act;

    }

 

    @Override

    public Object getChild(int groupPosition, int childPosition) {

        return null;

    }

 

    @Override

    public long getChildId(int groupPosition, int childPosition) {

        return 0;

    }

 

    @Override

    public View getChildView(int groupPosition, final int childPosition,

                             boolean isLastChild, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {

        tempChild = (ArrayList<String>) Childtem.get(groupPosition);

        TextView text = null;

        if (convertView == null) {

            convertView = minflater.inflate(R.layout.newxml, null);

        }

        text = (TextView) convertView.findViewById(R.id.textView1);

        text.setText(tempChild.get(childPosition));

        convertView.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

            @Override

            public void onClick(View v) {

                Toast.makeText(activity, tempChild.get(childPosition),

                        Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

            }

        });

        return convertView;

    }

 

    @Override

    public int getChildrenCount(int groupPosition) {

        return ((ArrayList<String>) Childtem.get(groupPosition)).size();

    }

 

    @Override

    public Object getGroup(int groupPosition) {

        return null;

    }

 

    @Override

    public int getGroupCount() {

        return groupItem.size();

    }

 

    @Override

    public void onGroupCollapsed(int groupPosition) {

        super.onGroupCollapsed(groupPosition);

    }

 

    @Override

    public void onGroupExpanded(int groupPosition) {

        super.onGroupExpanded(groupPosition);

    }

 

    @Override

    public long getGroupId(int groupPosition) {

        return 0;

    }

 

    @Override

    public View getGroupView(int groupPosition, boolean isExpanded,

                             View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {

        if (convertView == null) {

            convertView = minflater.inflate(R.layout.activity_main, null);

        }

        ((CheckedTextView) convertView).setText(groupItem.get(groupPosition));

        ((CheckedTextView) convertView).setChecked(isExpanded);

        return convertView;

    }

 

    @Override

    public boolean hasStableIds() {

        return false;

    }

 

    @Override

    public boolean isChildSelectable(int groupPosition, int childPosition) {

        return false;

    }

}
