If we are making an application that provides services such as booking flights, movie tickets, or others we generally have to implement a calendar in our application. We have to align the calendar in such a way so that it will look better and will take less amount of space in the mobile app. Most of the apps prefer to use Horizontal Calendar View inside their which looks better than the normal calendar. In this article, we will take a look at implementing a similar calendar in our app.
What we are going to build in this article?
We will be building a simple application in which we will be simply creating a horizontal calendar and we will be displaying the whole dates of the month in it. We will be displaying these dates in the horizontal Calendar View. A sample GIF 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
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: Add dependency
Navigate to the Gradle Scripts > build.gradle(Module:app) and add the below dependency in the dependencies section.
Step 3: 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 4: 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.
Now run your app and see the output of the app.
