How to Retrieve Blogs on User Profile in Social Media Android App?
  • Last Updated : 09 Apr, 2021

This is the Part 16 of “Build a Social Media App on Android Studio” tutorial, and we are going to cover the following functionalities in this article:

  • We are going to Retrieve Blogs Written by users on their profile fragment.
  • As previously we have already added Data of users in Profile Fragment like email, name, and profile pic.
  • Here we are also going to retrieve Blogs Written By the current user on their profile.
  • Let’s See the implementation of showing the blogs written by the current user.

Step By Step Implementation

Step 1: Working with the fragment_profile.xml file

Here we are adding a RecyclerView to view the blogs posted by the current user.

XML




<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:background="#F1EDED"
    tools:context=".ProfileFragment">
  
    <ScrollView
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content">
  
        <RelativeLayout
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content">
  
            <ImageView
                android:id="@+id/cavertv"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="180dp"
                android:background="@color/colorPrimaryDark"
                android:scaleType="fitXY"></ImageView>
  
            <LinearLayout
                android:id="@+id/linearLayout"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="120dp"
                android:layout_marginTop="100dp"
                android:orientation="horizontal">
  
                <ImageView
                    android:id="@+id/avatartv"
                    android:layout_width="120dp"
                    android:layout_height="120dp"
                    android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal"
                    android:layout_marginStart="20dp"
                    android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
                    android:padding="5dp"
                    android:src="@drawable/ic_images" />
  
                <LinearLayout
                    android:layout_width="match_parent"
                    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                    android:background="#77000000"
                    android:orientation="vertical">
  
                    <TextView
                        android:id="@+id/nametv"
                        android:layout_width="match_parent"
                        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                        android:layout_marginStart="5dp"
                        android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
                        android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
                        android:textColor="@color/colorWhite"
                        android:textSize="25sp" />
  
                    <TextView
                        android:id="@+id/emailtv"
                        android:layout_width="match_parent"
                        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                        android:layout_marginStart="5dp"
                        android:layout_marginLeft="5dp"
                        android:textColor="@color/colorWhite" />
                </LinearLayout>
  
            </LinearLayout>
  
            <androidx.recyclerview.widget.RecyclerView
                android:id="@+id/recyclerposts"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="match_parent"
                android:layout_below="@id/linearLayout" />
  
        </RelativeLayout>
  
    </ScrollView>
  
    <com.google.android.material.floatingactionbutton.FloatingActionButton
        android:id="@+id/fab"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_alignParentEnd="true"
        android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
        android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
        android:layout_margin="10dp"
        android:src="@drawable/ic_edit_white" />
  
</RelativeLayout>

Step 2: Working with the ProfileFragment.java file



Here we are going to retrieve value from the Posts node in such a way that uid of the current user is equal to uid of the user having a post

DatabaseReference databaseReference=FirebaseDatabase.getInstance().getReference("Posts");
Query query=databaseReference.orderByChild("uid").equalTo(uid);

Below is the code for the ProfileFragment.java file.
