android – After maintaining collapse/expand state for N-level or Multilevel expandablelistview some subgroups are not displayed

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I worked a lot to create **N-level expandableListView. I am able to make it to any level but my requirement is to maintain the state of opened groups even after scroll. I tried with multiple ways but still unsuccessful.

This Expandable listview is meeting with all company requirement other than this issue.

*This is one way, which i tried. I am able to save the states within objects but few subgroups are not getting displayed. *

I tried with onMeasure(width,height) method to maintain the height when dynamic generated list but still failed to get perfect one.

Also i went through a number of articles for the same.

Attached Screenshot of my working application..

enter image description here

Here is my Code.

public class ParentLevelAdapter extends BaseExpandableListAdapter {

        private Context context;
        private View convertView;
        Account account;
        private ArrayList<Model_Departments> list_departments;

                ArrayList<Model_Departments> list_departments, Account account) {
            this.context = context;
            this.list_departments = list_departments;
            this.account = account;
        }

        public void updateList(Context context,

How to&Answers:

I have the same issue before with N-level Expandable ListView, I use a trick that displays only one expand item. Although it does not look like the best solution for you, however, hope it helps!

            // display only one expand item
            mExpandableListView.setOnGroupExpandListener(new ExpandableListView.OnGroupExpandListener() {
                int previousGroup = -1;
                @Override
                public void onGroupExpand(int groupPosition) {
                    if (groupPosition != previousGroup)
                        mExpandableListView.collapseGroup(previousGroup);
                    previousGroup = groupPosition;
                }
            });

and the same on secondLevelExpListView

UPDATE:

Another way you can try as the following (together with above setOnGroupExpandListener):

public class CustomExpListView extends ExpandableListView
{
    public CustomExpListView(Context context)
    {
        super(context);
    }
    protected void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec)
    {
        widthMeasureSpec = MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(960, MeasureSpec.AT_MOST);
        heightMeasureSpec = MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(2000, MeasureSpec.AT_MOST);
        super.onMeasure(widthMeasureSpec, heightMeasureSpec);
    }
}

Then inside your ParentLevelAdapter call this:

    @Override
    public View getChildView(int groupPosition, int childPosition,
                             boolean isLastChild, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
        final CustomExpListView secondLevelExpListView = new CustomExpListView(this.mContext);
        String parentNode = (String) getGroup(groupPosition);
        secondLevelExpListView.setAdapter(new SecondLevelAdapter(this.mContext, mListData_SecondLevel_Map.get(parentNode), mListData_ThirdLevel_Map));
        secondLevelExpListView.setGroupIndicator(null);
        secondLevelExpListView.setOnGroupExpandListener(new ExpandableListView.OnGroupExpandListener() {
            int previousGroup = -1;
            @Override
            public void onGroupExpand(int groupPosition) {
                if (groupPosition != previousGroup)
                    secondLevelExpListView.collapseGroup(previousGroup);
                previousGroup = groupPosition;
            }
        });
        return secondLevelExpListView;
    }

If you don’t want to use setOnGroupExpandListener, then you should increase heightMeasureSpec like this heightMeasureSpec = MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(20000, MeasureSpec.AT_MOST);

Please note that I have only tested with 3-level expandable list view, you can read more at my answer at the following question:
