Horizontal ListView in Android using Jetpack Compose
Many Android Applications present data in the form of horizontally scrollable lists. This list can be scrolled horizontally. In this article, we will take a look at How to Implement Horizontal ListView in Android Applications using Jetpack Compose.
Note: If you are seeking Java code for Jetpack Compose, please note that Jetpack Compose is only available in Kotlin. It uses features such as coroutines, and the handling of @Composable annotations is handled by a Kotlin compiler. There is no method for Java to access these. Therefore, you cannot use Jetpack Compose if your project does not support Kotlin.
Step by Step Implementation
Step 1: Create a New Project in Android Studio
To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. While choosing the template, select Empty Compose Activity. If you do not find this template, try upgrading the Android Studio to the latest version. We demonstrated the application in Kotlin, so make sure you select Kotlin as the primary language while creating a New Project.
Step 2: Creating a Model Class
Navigate to the app > java > your app’s package name > Right-click on it > New > Java/Kotlin class and name your class as ListModel and add the below code to it. Comments are added to the code for further explanation.
Step 3: Adding a New Color in the Color.kt File
