Many applications use TabLayout in which we have to show an image above the TabLayout. This type of UI design is mainly seen in Restaurant apps and many more. In this article, we will take a look at implementing the same type of view using Coordinator TabLayout in our Android App using Android Studio.
What we are going to build in this article?
We will be building a simple application in which we will be displaying the images and below that images, we will be displaying a TabLayout. Inside that TabLayout, we will be displaying the course-related details in that list and we will be displaying different types of courses in it. A sample video is given below to get an idea about what we are going to do in this article. Note that we are going to implement this project using the Java language.
Step by Step Implementation for Adding Coordinator TabLayout in Android
Step 1: Create a New Project
To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. Note that select Java as the programming language.
Step 2: Adding dependency for using Coordinator Layout in build.gradle
Navigate to the Gradle Scripts > build.gradle(Module:app) and add the below dependency in the dependencies section.
After adding the dependency now sync the project and we will be ready to work on it.
Step 3: Updating the themes.xml file.
Navigate to the app > res > values > themes.xml and change the theme to NoActionBar. Refer to the following code.
Step 4: Working with the activity_main.xml file
Navigate to the app > res > layout > activity_main.xml and add the below code to that file. Below is the code for the activity_main.xml file.
Step 5: Creating a Fragment for displaying our course details
Navigate to the app > res > layout > Right-click on it > New > Blank Fragment and name it as HomeFragment and click on Create to create a new Fragment. After creating this fragment, now navigate to the app > res > layout > fragment_home and add the below code to it.
Step 6: Creating a new layout file for the item of RecyclerView
Navigate to app > res > layout > Right-click on it > New > Layout Resource file and name it as item_main and add below code to it.
Step 7: Creating an adapter class for setting data to RecyclerView items
Navigate to the app > java > your app’s package name > Right-click on it > New > Java class and name it as RecyclerAdapter and add the below code to it.
Step 8: Working with the HomeFragment.java file
Navigate to the app > java > your app’s package name > HomeFragment.java file and add the below code to it.
Step 9: Creating an Adapter class for handling TabLayout
Navigate to the app > java > your app’s package name > Right-click on it > New > Java class and name it as ViewPagerAdapter and add the below code to it.
Step 10: Working with the MainActivity.java file
Go to the MainActivity.java file and refer to the following code. Below is the code for the MainActivity.java file. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.
Note: Images use inside the project are present in the drawable folder.
Now run your app and see the output of the app.
