How to add a recyclerView inside another recyclerView Android Example

Hi, Developer in this Android Tutorial I am sharing an Android recyclerView inside another recyclerView. There is am a simple example to show rest API response multiple Array list. the response of the API Array list in a side-on Any other Array list. So let’s How to add a recyclerView inside another recyclerView Android Example.

{   “httpStatus”:“OK”,
“body”:{

         “createdAt”:“2020-04-11T12:13:26Z”,
“eventSchedule”:[

            {

               “id”:397,
“startDate”:“2020-04-12T03:30:22Z”,
“endDate”:“2020-04-12T05:30:22Z”,
“description”:null,
“topic”:“Tea Time”,
“title”:“Morning”,
“speakers”:[

                  {

                     “id”:1,
“fullName”:“Codeplayon”,
“email”:“codeplayon@gmail.com”,
“phone”:“1234567890”,
“designation”:“Lead”,
“origanizationName”:“Bellurbis”,
“profileImageUrl”:“http://www.codeplayon.com/”,
“personType”:“speaker”
}
               ]
            }
        ],}}
That is Array list response you can see the Array list in said on Array list. To Show this response in RecyalerView in Said on RecyclerView. we have a Creating activity and add recycler view in their layout file . and call a Rest Api to get Response and using Volley JSON parser you can Parser the response in RecyclerView List.
So Let’ start on Android Create your Project and with empty Activity.
dependencies {
    implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.1.0'
    implementation 'androidx.constraintlayout:constraintlayout:1.1.3'

    androidTestImplementation 'androidx.test.ext:junit:1.1.1'
}

Step 1: Main Activity XML File Source code.

<LinearLayout
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:visibility="gone"
    android:orientation="vertical">

    <androidx.recyclerview.widget.RecyclerView
        android:id="@+id/Event_RecyclerView"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
        android:orientation="vertical" />

</LinearLayout>

 Step 2 Main Java Class Source Code.

public class EventDetails_Screen extends AppCompatActivity  {

   
    ImageView Event_Image;
    TextView Event_DetTitle,Event_DetDescription,Event_DetLocation;
    RecyclerView Event_RecyclerView;
    private Event_Adupter rAdupter1;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        supportRequestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_ACTION_BAR_OVERLAY);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_event_details__screen);

        FindViewById();
        EventDetails();        
    }
@SuppressLint({"NewApi", "WrongConstant"})
public void FindViewById(){
    Event_Image =(ImageView)findViewById(R.id.Event_Image);
    Event_DetLocation=(TextView)findViewById(R.id.Event_DetLocation);
    EventAjendat_RecyclerView=(RecyclerView)findViewById(R.id.EventAjendat_RecyclerView);
   
}

// Get Request For JSONObject
public void EventDetails(){
final ProgressDialog loading = new ProgressDialog(EventDetails_Screen.this);
loading.setMessage("Please Wait...");
loading.setCanceledOnTouchOutside(false);
loading.show();

JsonObjectRequest req = new JsonObjectRequest(Request.Method.GET, ConfiURL.BaseURL+"public/event/"+EventId, null,
new Response.Listener<JSONObject>() {
@Override
public void onResponse(JSONObject response) {
Log.d("Response", response.toString());

try {
Log.d("JSON", String.valueOf(response));
loading.dismiss();
String Error = response.getString("httpStatus");
if(Error.equals("OK")){
JSONObject Body = response.getJSONObject("body");
JSONObject events = Body.getJSONObject("events")

JSONObject categoryTypeId =events.getJSONObject("categoryTypeId");
String Title = events.getString("title");
String Des = events.getString("detail");

EventAjenda(eventSchedule);

}else if(Error.equals("")||Error.equals(null)){

}else {

}

} catch (JSONException e) {

loading.dismiss();

}

}
}, new Response.ErrorListener() {
@Override
public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {
loading.dismiss();
VolleyLog.d("Error", "Error: " + error.getMessage());
if (error instanceof TimeoutError || error instanceof NoConnectionError) {
ContextThemeWrapper ctw = new ContextThemeWrapper(EventDetails_Screen.this, R.style.Theme_AlertDialog);
final android.app.AlertDialog.Builder alertDialogBuilder = new android.app.AlertDialog.Builder(ctw);
alertDialogBuilder.setTitle("No connection");
alertDialogBuilder.setMessage(" Connection time out error please try again ");
alertDialogBuilder.setPositiveButton("ok", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {

}
});
alertDialogBuilder.show();
}
}
})
{
@Override
public String getBodyContentType() {
return "application/json; charset=utf-8";
}

@Override
public Map<String, String> getHeaders() throws AuthFailureError {
HashMap<String, String> headers = new HashMap<String, String>();
headers.put("Authorization", ConfiURL.Token);
return headers;
}
};
RequestQueue queue = Volley.newRequestQueue(getApplicationContext());
queue.add(req);
}



protected void EventAjenda(JSONArray result) {

//this method will be running on UI thread
List<DataObject> data = new ArrayList<>();
data.equals(null);
try {
// Extract data from json and store into ArrayList as class objects
for (int i = 0; i < result.length(); i++) {
JSONObject json_data = result.getJSONObject(i);
JSONArray jsonArray = json_data.getJSONArray("speakers");
DataObject report = new DataObject();
report.mText1 = json_data.getString("id");
report.mText2 = json_data.getString("topic");
report.mText3 = json_data.getString("startDate");
report.mText4 = (json_data.getString("endDate"));
report.mText5 = (json_data.getString("title"));
report.mText6 = (json_data.getString("description"));
report.mText7 =String.valueOf(jsonArray);
data.add(report);
}
// Setup and Handover data to recyclerview
Event_RecyclerView = (RecyclerView) findViewById(R.id.EventAjendat_RecyclerView);
rAdupter1 = new EventAjenda_Adupter(EventDetails_Screen.this, data);
Event_RecyclerView.setAdapter(rAdupter1);
Event_RecyclerView.setHasFixedSize(true);
Event_RecyclerView.setLayoutManager(new LinearLayoutManager(EventDetails_Screen.this));
EventA_RecyclerView.addOnScrollListener(new RecyclerView.OnScrollListener() {
@Override
public void onScrolled(RecyclerView recyclerView, int dx, int dy) {

super.onScrolled(recyclerView, dx, dy);
}
});
// GridLayoutManager gridLayoutManager = new GridLayoutManager(getApplicationContext(),4);
// recyclerView.setLayoutManager(gridLayoutManager);

} catch (JSONException e) {
Toast.makeText(EventDetails_Screen.this, e.toString(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}
}

hare we can parser the response and using Adapter class to get and set the Response in recycler view. In Your Mian Adapter, you can implement your Sub Adapter recycerverView. And In CardView layout you can Add this RecyclerView

Step 3:  Main Adapter Class source Code. 

public class EventAjenda_Adupter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<RecyclerView.ViewHolder> {
    private Activity context;
    private LayoutInflater inflater;
    List<DataObject> data = Collections.emptyList();
    private ArrayList<DataObject> arraylist;
    private int lastPosition = -2;
    String DetailsImage,serviceUsed,customerProfile,resourceLink;
    public EventAjenda_Adupter(Activity context, List<DataObject> data) {
        this.context = context;
        // inflater = LayoutInflater.from(context);
        this.data = data;
        this.arraylist = new ArrayList<DataObject>();
        this.arraylist.addAll(data);
    }

    // Inflate the layout when viewholder created
    @Override
    public RecyclerView.ViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
        View view = inflater.from(parent.getContext()).
                inflate(R.layout.ajenda_card, parent, false);
        EventAjenda_Adupter.MyHolder holder = new EventAjenda_Adupter.MyHolder(view);
        return holder;
    }

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

        // Get current position of item in recyclerview to bind data and assign values from list
        EventAjenda_Adupter.MyHolder myHolder = (EventAjenda_Adupter.MyHolder) holder;
        DataObject current = data.get(position);
        myHolder.Ajenda_Id.setText(current.getmText1());
        myHolder.Ajenda_Topic.setText(Html.fromHtml(current.getmText2()));
        myHolder.Ajenda_Title.setText(Html.fromHtml(current.getmText5()));
        myHolder.Ajenda_Descraption.setText(Html.fromHtml(current.getmText6()));
        try {
            SimpleDateFormat simpleDateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss'Z'");
            simpleDateFormat.setTimeZone(TimeZone.getTimeZone("UTC"));
            Date d = simpleDateFormat.parse(current.getmText3());
            Date d1 = simpleDateFormat.parse(current.getmText4());
            DateFormat time = new SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm a");
            String Date = time.format(d);
            String Date1 = time.format(d1);
            myHolder.Ajenda_Time_Date.setText("Timing:   "+Date+"  To  " +Date1);
        } catch (ParseException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }

        String result= current.getmText7();
        JSONArray mJSONArray = null;
        try {
            mJSONArray = new JSONArray(result);
            myHolder.onPostExecute(mJSONArray);
        } catch (JSONException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }

//        setAnimation(myHolder.itemView, position);

    }

    private void setAnimation(View viewToAnimate, int position)
    {
        // If the bound view wasn't previously displayed on screen, it's animated
        if (position > lastPosition)
        {
            Animation animation = AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(context, android.R.anim.slide_in_left);
            viewToAnimate.startAnimation(animation);
            lastPosition = position;
        }
    }



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


    class MyHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {

        TextView Ajenda_Time_Date,Ajenda_Descraption,Ajenda_Topic,Ajenda_Title,Ajenda_Id;
        CardView CV;
        RecyclerView Spekar_RecyclerView;
        private SpeakerAdupter rAdapter;

        // create constructor to get widget reference
        public MyHolder(View itemView) {

            Spekar_RecyclerView = (RecyclerView)itemView.findViewById(R.id.Spekar_RecyclerView);
        }


        protected void onPostExecute(JSONArray result) {

            //this method will be running on UI thread
            List<DataObject> data = new ArrayList<>();
            data.equals(null);
            try {
                // Extract data from json and store into ArrayList as class objects
                for (int i = 0; i < result.length(); i++) {
                    JSONObject json_data = result.getJSONObject(i);
                    DataObject report = new DataObject();
                    report.mText1 = json_data.getString("id");
                    report.mText2 = json_data.getString("fullName");
                    report.mText3 = json_data.getString("origanizationName");
                    report.Image = json_data.getString("profileImageUrl");
                    data.add(report);
                }
                rAdapter = new SpeakerAdupter(context, data);
                Spekar_RecyclerView.setAdapter(rAdapter);
                Spekar_RecyclerView.setHasFixedSize(true);
                Spekar_RecyclerView.setLayoutManager(new LinearLayoutManager(context));

            } catch (JSONException e) {
                Toast.makeText(context, e.toString(), Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            }
