For now, i have a RecyclerView with a CardView inside it. in the CardView I have put an ImageView and a TextView but I don’t know why but the CardView is more height than ImageView inside it.

Here is The code and a Sample Image.

And Here is the code: Activity

public class AddRoomActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements View.OnClickListener {

private View snackView;
private FloatingActionButton fabDoneAddRoom;
private EditText etRoomName;
private String roomName = null;
public final static String KEY_PI_IP = "MyPi_IP";
private final static String KEY_ROOM = "myRoom";
private final static String KEY_ROOM_TYPE = "myRoom_Type";

private RecyclerView typeRecyclerView;
private GridLayoutManager layoutManager;
private AddRoomActivity.TypeAdapter adapter;


private String myPi;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_add_room);
    Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
    setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

    fabDoneAddRoom = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.doneAddRoom);
    fabDoneAddRoom.setOnClickListener(this);
    getSupportActionBar().setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(true);

    etRoomName = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.addRoomName);
    myPi = getIntent().getStringExtra(KEY_PI_IP);

    layoutManager = new GridLayoutManager(this, 2);


    typeRecyclerView = (RecyclerView) findViewById(R.id.recyclerTypeRoom);
    typeRecyclerView.setHasFixedSize(true);

    typeRecyclerView.setLayoutManager(layoutManager);

    // specify an adapter (see also next example)
    adapter = new TypeAdapter(getResources().getStringArray(R.array.roomTypeName));
    typeRecyclerView.setAdapter(adapter);


}


void showToastMessage(String message) {
    Snackbar.make(snackView, message, Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}

@Override
public void onClick(View v) {
    if (v.getId() == R.id.doneAddRoom) {
        snackView = v;
        String myString = etRoomName.getText().toString();

        if (myString.length() > 0) {
            roomName = myString.substring(0, 1).toUpperCase() + myString.substring(1);
            addRoomToPi();
        } else {
            showToastMessage(getString(R.string.noNameRoom));

        }
    }
}

private void addRoomToPi() {
    Integer ret = -1;
    try {
        ret = (Integer) new RaspberryTCPClient(myPi, getResources(), RaspberryTCPClient.TYPE_ADD_ROOM, roomName, XMLRoom.TYPE_KITCHEN_ROOM).execute().get();
    } catch (InterruptedException e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
    } catch (ExecutionException e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
    }

    if (ret == RaspberryTCPClient.OPERATION_DONE) {

        showToastMessage(getString(R.string.roomAdded));

        Intent data = new Intent();
        data.putExtra(KEY_ROOM, roomName);
        setResult(Activity.RESULT_OK, data);

        final Handler handler = new Handler();
        handler.postDelayed(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                finish();
            }
        }, 1500);
    } else {

How to&Answers:

Extracted required info from the accepted answer in case URL becomes invalid in future and to save time.

GridLayoutManager is used to display the RecyclerView in Grid manner instead of list.

RecyclerView.LayoutManager mLayoutManager = new GridLayoutManager(this, 2);
recyclerView.setLayoutManager(mLayoutManager);

Kotlin version:

recyclerView.apply {
   layoutManager = GridLayoutManager(this, 2)
}

Answer:

You can use this code simply

<android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView
    app:layoutManager="android.support.v7.widget.GridLayoutManager"
    app:spanCount="2"/>

Answer:

With androidX libraries simply do:

<androidx.recyclerview.widget.RecyclerView
    app:layoutManager="androidx.recyclerview.widget.GridLayoutManager"
    app:spanCount="2"/>

Answer:

use "0dp" in layout_width and layout_height for putting views in it’s position.

like this:

android:layout_width="0dp"

and use Guidelines in your xml.

<ImageView
    android:id="@+id/img_roomType"
    android:layout_width="0dp"
    android:layout_height="0dp"
    android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
    android:src="@drawable/img_room" />

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/tvTypeName"
    android:layout_width="0dp"
    android:layout_height="0dp"
    android:layout_gravity="bottom"
    android:gravity="center"
    android:textColor="@android:color/white"
    android:textSize="20sp" />

this is NOT true code, u have to use Guidelines.
