How to implement pagination of recyclerview that is within NestedScrollView?

How to solve:

Follow this steps :

1. Set nested scrolling enabled false of recycler view.


2. Add scroll listner to nested scrollview.

 mScrollView.getViewTreeObserver().addOnScrollChangedListener(new ViewTreeObserver.OnScrollChangedListener() {
           public void onScrollChanged()
                    View view = (View)mScrollView.getChildAt(mScrollView.getChildCount() - 1);

                    int diff = (view.getBottom() - (mScrollView.getHeight() + mScrollView

                    if (diff == 0) {
                       // your pagination code


if you are using Kotlin your code will be looks like

 scroll?.viewTreeObserver?.addOnScrollChangedListener {
        val view = scroll.getChildAt(scroll.childCount - 1)

        val diff = view.bottom - (scroll.height + scroll.scrollY)

        if (diff == 0) {
            //your api call to fetch data

and last but the not the least set RecyclerView scrolling false

 ViewCompat.setNestedScrollingEnabled(recyclerView, false)


I could get the solution setting OnScrollChangeListener in the nestedScrollView.

The field isLoading should be changed everytime you load the items, for example if you are using retrofit. You could set it as true before It start running and as false when you get the response or the failure.

The field isLastPage should be changed everytime you get items and check if this page was the last one.

I’m using kotlin.

private var isLoading = false

private var isLastPage = false

nestedScrollView.setOnScrollChangeListener { v: NestedScrollView?, scrollX: Int, scrollY: Int, oldScrollX: Int, oldScrollY: Int ->

            val nestedScrollView = checkNotNull(v){

            val lastChild = nestedScrollView.getChildAt(nestedScrollView.childCount - 1)

            if (lastChild != null) {

                if ((scrollY >= (lastChild.measuredHeight - nestedScrollView.measuredHeight)) && scrollY > oldScrollY && !isLoading && !isLastPage) {

                    //get more items

And of course you need to set the field isNestedScrollingEnabled as false

myRecyclerView.isNestedScrollingEnabled = false
