java – How to set a fixed number of rows in android gridView?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am trying to create one gridView in android which have 10 rows and 10 columns.How can I set a fixed number of rows in Gridview ?

How to solve:

GridView is not really designed for this purpose, it is designed to display an indefinite amount of data in an efficient scrolling manner. If you want to create a static layout where you can discretely place items at specific locations, you should be looking at GridLayout or TableLayout instead.

i dont recommend that but if you use API 14 greater than 14 you can use this code
set number of column and rows

from xml

 <GridLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/GridLayout1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:columnCount="2"
    android:rowCount="2"
    android:orientation="horizontal"
    tools:context=".GridXMLActivity" >

From Java

setRowCount(int rownumber );

enjoy

I used something like this, it isn’t GridView but I had the similar issue and GridLayout helped me a lot:

<GridLayout
    android:id="@+id/bottom_recycle_view"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:columnCount="10"
    android:rowCount="10"
>

You will have 10 rows and 10 columns.

If you have 100 items then only 10 rows will be shown. There is no need to have a fixed number of rows.

###

The number of rows is automatically calculated (and imposed by you) from the number of
columns and the number of items
