Using RecyclerView to show multiple different kinds of items

Level: Beginner

by John Brohan

RecyclerViews are very fast and offer a way to show a part of a larger database without concern for the full size of the database. It is an added complication to have more than one view to show, but this is well supported and works well.

My app gathers observations for a whole day and shows this as a recyclerView. Swiping moves up or down within a day and right to left changes days. I will use this app as the backbone of my presentation


I’ve been programming computers for rather a long time, mostly in real time data acquisition. The last LabView job was to instrument a simulator for a mine which happens to be in porous rock under a lake. The goal of the simulator is to see how best to freeze the ground before cutting out the frozen rock. Thermocouples, pumps valves flow meters and so on!
In the last ten years I’ve been trying to program mobile phones to help people with disabilities, especially Old People.
