android – GridView rows outer margin

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I cannot find out a way to add an outer margin to the GridView rows. I found the setHorizontalSpacing and setVerticalSpacing properties which add inner padding between the GridView rows, however it doesn’t apply to the outer borders of the rows.

I’d like to have a result as it’s featured on the Google Play store:

Thanks!

How to&Answers:

You can use android:clipToPadding=false to add padding that doesn’t stay when the items are scrolled. Like this

<GridView
    android:id="@+id/grid"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:horizontalSpacing="16dp"
    android:verticalSpacing="16dp"
    android:padding="16dp"
    android:clipToPadding="false" />

And if you want the scrollbar on the outside of the padding area, set android:scrollbarStyle="outsideOverlay" thanks @Karl!

Answer:

If you want result like GooglePlay store, you can set setHorizontalSpacing and setVerticalSpacing and then set layout_margin to GridView.
