SHARE

We can use custom ArrayAdapter with Spinner:

Step 1: create new project
Step 2: create new drawable resource

res\drawable\logots.png

Use this file for example:

logots

android new drawable

Step 3: create new layout resource

res\layout\item.xml

android new layout resource file

android new layout resource file 2

Step 4: Edit file res\layout\item.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="horizontal"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content">

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/icon"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:src="@drawable/logots"/>
    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/city"
        android:text="Text"
        android:paddingTop="15dp"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

</LinearLayout>

android custom layout

Step 5: With MainActivity.java

Create custom adapter class

public String[] cities = {
            "Manchester",
            "London",
            "Hanoi",
            "Newyork",
            "Toronto",
            "Paris",
            "Berlin",
            "Bangkok",
            "Jakarta"
    };

    public class CustomAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<String>{
        public CustomAdapter(Context context, int resource, String[] objects) {
            super(context, resource, objects);
        }

        @Override
        public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            LayoutInflater inflater=getLayoutInflater();
            View item = inflater.inflate(R.layout.item, parent, false);
            TextView label = (TextView) item.findViewById(R.id.city);
            label.setText(cities[position]);
            return item;
        }

        @Override
        public View getDropDownView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            return getView(position, convertView, parent);
        }
    }

Step 6: set customer adapter for spinner

// Spinner element
        spinner = (Spinner) findViewById(R.id.spinner);

        // Creating adapter for spinner
        ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new CustomAdapter(MainActivity.this, R.layout.item, cities);

        spinner.setAdapter(adapter);

Here’s the full code of file MainActivity.java

package com.tutorialspots.spinner;

import android.content.Context;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton;
import android.support.design.widget.Snackbar;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.view.ViewGroup;
import android.widget.AdapterView;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.Spinner;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public String[] cities = {
            "Manchester",
            "London",
            "Hanoi",
            "Newyork",
            "Toronto",
            "Paris",
            "Berlin",
            "Bangkok",
            "Jakarta"
    };

    public class CustomAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<String>{
        public CustomAdapter(Context context, int resource, String[] objects) {
            super(context, resource, objects);
        }

        @Override
        public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            LayoutInflater inflater=getLayoutInflater();
            View item = inflater.inflate(R.layout.item, parent, false);
            TextView label = (TextView) item.findViewById(R.id.city);
            label.setText(cities[position]);
            return item;
        }

        @Override
        public View getDropDownView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            return getView(position, convertView, parent);
        }
    }

    public Spinner spinner;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

        FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);
        fab.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                Snackbar.make(view, "Replace with your own action", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG)
                        .setAction("Action", null).show();
            }
        });

        // Spinner element
        spinner = (Spinner) findViewById(R.id.spinner);

        // Creating adapter for spinner
        ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new CustomAdapter(MainActivity.this, R.layout.item, cities);

        spinner.setAdapter(adapter);

        // Spinner click listener
        spinner.setOnItemSelectedListener(new AdapterView.OnItemSelectedListener() {
            @Override
            public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> adapterView, View view, int i, long l) {
                String item = (String) adapterView.getItemAtPosition(i);
                Toast.makeText(adapterView.getContext(), "Item selected: " + item, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            }

            @Override
            public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView<?> adapterView) {

            }
        });
    }
...
}
