AndroidMobile DevelopmentApps/Applications

This example demonstrates how do I add footer in Android ListView.

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.

<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"
   tools:context=".MainActivity" >

   <ListView
      android:id="@+id/listView"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
      android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" >
   </ListView>

</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 – Create a layout file.xml and name it as listView_footer.xml and add the following code −

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:orientation="vertical"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent">
   
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/textView"
      android:layout_width="fill_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:text="Footer: End of the ListView!"
      android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"
      android:padding="16sp" />

</LinearLayout>

Step 4 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.ViewGroup;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.ListView;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

   ListView listView;
   String[] country = new String[] {
      "India",
      "Australia",
      "South Africa",
      "North America",
      "South America",
      "Iceland",
      "GreenLand"
   };
   List<String> LISTSTRING;
   LayoutInflater layoutInflater;

   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

      listView = findViewById(R.id.listView);
      LISTSTRING = new ArrayList<>(Arrays.asList(country));

      ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<>(this,
      android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, LISTSTRING);

      layoutInflater = getLayoutInflater();
      ViewGroup footer = (ViewGroup) layoutInflater.inflate(R.layout.listview_footer, listView, false);
      listView.addFooterView(footer);
      listView.setAdapter(adapter);

   }
}

Step 5 - Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   package="app.com.sample">

   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

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 android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run Play Icon Icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –
