I needed to implement a layout which is similar to Google Chrome’s stack of tabs as shown below .
Are there any libraries available for this ?
You need to create a set custom drawables for each aspect of the card and use them in the layout. You can use table layout for this purpose.
For example to put a background with corners you can create a drawable as follows:
Add new drwabe resource as follows:
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="rectangle" > <corners android:radius="5dp"/> <stroke android:width="1dp" android:color="choose the color which you want"/> <padding android:top="10dp" android:left="10dp" android:bottom="10dp" android:right="10dp"/> </shape>
Create a custom style and use the above drawable as background:
<style name="ContactTextView"> <item name="android:background">@drawable/drawableName</item> // add other items </style>
Apply the style on each item in your layout
Use a RecyclerView with your own LayoutManager. The layoutmanager can than stack it like this. To implement behaviour (like expanding an item on click) you need more code. I coudlnt find an open source project which has this.
Have a look here for help:
