Android different Row layout only for first row in BaseAdapter


I am making an <strong>Custom listview</strong> with <strong>Custom Adapter</strong> extending <strong>BaseAdapter</strong>. Now I want to set a different <strong>layout</strong> only for first row and another <strong>layout</strong> for all other rows. I am using this code but it sets the <strong>special layout</strong> for <strong>1st row</strong> and also repeats it after every 5/6 rows. How can I fix it and can set it only for 1st row and another layout for all other rows.

public class NewsAdapter extends BaseAdapter { private Context context; List<News> newsList; private Typeface customBanglaFont; private LayoutInflater inflater; ImageLoader imageLoader = AppController.getInstance().getImageLoader(); public NewsAdapter(Context context, List<News> newsList){ this.context = context; this.newsList = newsList; } @Override public int getCount() { return newsList.size(); } @Override public Object getItem(int arg0) { return newsList.get(arg0); } @Override public long getItemId(int arg0) { return arg0; } @Override public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup viewGroup) { View row; row = convertView; ViewHolder holder=null; if(row == null){ if(position == 0){ inflater = (LayoutInflater) context.getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE); row =inflater.inflate(R.layout.row_single_big_view,viewGroup,false); } else{ inflater = (LayoutInflater) context.getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE); row =inflater.inflate(R.layout.row_single_default,viewGroup,false); } holder = new ViewHolder(row); row.setTag(holder); } else{ holder = (ViewHolder) row.getTag(); } if (imageLoader == null){ imageLoader = AppController.getInstance().getImageLoader(); } final News news = newsList.get(position); customBanglaFont = Typeface.createFromAsset(viewGroup.getContext().getAssets(), "fonts/SolaimanLipi.ttf"); holder.newsTitleView.setTypeface(customBanglaFont); holder.newsTitleView.setText(news.getTitle()); holder.thumbNail.setImageUrl(news.getFeaturedImgSrc(), imageLoader); return row; } } /** * Custom View Holder Class * @author Tonmoy * */ class ViewHolder{ TextView newsTitleView; NetworkImageView thumbNail; public ViewHolder(View v) { // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub newsTitleView = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.news_title); thumbNail = (NetworkImageView) v.findViewById(R.id.news_image); } }


Why don't you use the Header functionality already built into ListView for this specific thing.

The docs: <a href="http://developer.android.com/reference/android/widget/ListView.html#addHeaderView%28android.view.View,%20java.lang.Object,%20boolean%29" rel="nofollow">http://developer.android.com/reference/android/widget/ListView.html#addHeaderView%28android.view.View,%20java.lang.Object,%20boolean%29</a>

or a SO question: <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7978359/using-listview-how-to-add-a-header-view" rel="nofollow">Using ListView : How to add a header view?</a>


your attempting is wrong. Your way you will be able to inflate just one layout. In fact, after the method returns the first time, convertView is not null. To fix quickly you could override getViewTypeCount and getItemViewType. This way you will get convertViews eqaul to the return value of getViewTypeCount, or you could just add the first item as header view for the ListView
