This example demonstrate about How to delete element from arraylist for listview in Android

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"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity"
   android:orientation = "vertical">
   <EditText
      android:id = "@+id/name"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:hint = "Enter Name"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
   <LinearLayout
      android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content">
      <Button
         android:id = "@+id/save"
         android:text = "Save"
         android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
         android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
      <Button
         android:id = "@+id/refresh"
         android:text = "Refresh"
         android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
         android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
      <Button
         android:id = "@+id/delete"
         android:text = "Delete"
         android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
         android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
   </LinearLayout>
   <ListView
      android:id = "@+id/listView"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content">
   </ListView>
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken name as Edit text, when user click on save button it will store the data into arraylist. Click on delete button to delete the record from listview.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.andy.myapplication;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.ListView;
import android.widget.Toast;
import java.util.ArrayList;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   Button save, refresh;
   EditText name;
   ArrayAdapter arrayAdapter;
   private ListView listView;
   ArrayList array_list;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle readdInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(readdInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      array_list = new ArrayList();
      name = findViewById(R.id.name);
      listView = findViewById(R.id.listView);
      findViewById(R.id.refresh).setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            arrayAdapter.notifyDataSetChanged();
            listView.invalidateViews();
            listView.refreshDrawableState();
         }
      });
      findViewById(R.id.delete).setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            if(array_list.size()>0) {
               if (!name.getText().toString().isEmpty()) {
                  array_list.remove(name.getText().toString());
                  arrayAdapter = new ArrayAdapter(MainActivity.this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, array_list);
                  listView.setAdapter(arrayAdapter);
                  Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "deleted", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
               }
            } else {
               Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "There is no element to delete", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            }
         }
      });
      findViewById(R.id.save).setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            if (!name.getText().toString().isEmpty()) {
               array_list.add(name.getText().toString());
               arrayAdapter = new ArrayAdapter(MainActivity.this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, array_list);
               listView.setAdapter(arrayAdapter);
               Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Inserted", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            } else {
               name.setError("Enter NAME");
            }
         }
      });
   }
}

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  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, we are inserting name into arraylist and displaying name in listview.

Now same element we are deleting from listview by clicking delete button.
