Before getting into example, we should know what is vertical Scroll View(Scroll View). Vertical Scroll view provide by android.widget.ScrollView class. It is used to scroll child views in a vertical direction.

This example demonstrates how to use Vertical Scroll view.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:id="@+id/layout"
   android:layout_height="match_parent">
   <ScrollView
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent">
      <LinearLayout
         android:layout_width="match_parent"
         android:orientation="vertical"
         android:layout_height="match_parent">
         <ImageView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:background="#c1c1c1"
            android:layout_height="300dp"
            android:src="@drawable/a"/>
         <ImageView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:background="#c1c1c1"
            android:layout_height="300dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="30dp"
            android:src="@drawable/b"/>
         <ImageView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:background="#c1c1c1"
            android:layout_height="300dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="30dp"
            android:src="@drawable/c"/>
         <ImageView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:background="#c1c1c1"
            android:layout_height="300dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="30dp"
            android:src="@drawable/d"/>
         <ImageView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:background="#c1c1c1"
            android:layout_height="300dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="30dp"
            android:src="@drawable/e"/>
      </LinearLayout>
   </ScrollView>
</LinearLayout>

In this above code, we have declare Linear layout as parent and added Vertical Scroll view. Vertical scroll view going to scroll its child view in Vertical direction so we have created Linear layout as a child for Vertical scroll view and added child for linear layout. We have given five child images views to scroll.

Step 3 − No need to change manifest.xml and activities.

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from an android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run icon  from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen −

In the above result is the initial screen when you scroll vertically it will scroll as shown below image-

In the above result, we are scrolling imageviews vertically.

At finally it will reach to the last position of vertical scroll view as shown above.
