Android – RecyclerView android: Getting an item at a particular position

androidandroid-listviewandroid-recyclerview

Is there any way to get an item of the RecyclerView at a particular position outside the adapter. e.g in ListView we could do:

    listView.getItem(position); 

Can we do this with RecyclerView ? and also is the order of provided data list maintained ?

Best Solution

You can add your own method to RecyclerView or I would suggest the RecyclerView.Adapter itself.

For instance, for ListView, you have:

@Override
public Object getItem(int position) {
    return listData.get(position);
}

You can add the same thing to your RecylcerView.Adapter or access it another way by adding a simple method to your RecylcerView.Adapter:

public List<Model> getList() {
    return this.mModel;
}

Use it like this:

recyclerView.getAdapter().getList().get(position)
