[android] CardView layout_width=“match_parent” does not match parent RecyclerView width

Use RelativeLayout as the immediate parent to CardView.

<RelativeLayout 
    android:layout_width="match_parent" ... >
    <CardView 
        android:layout_width="match_parent" ... >
    </CardView>
</RelativeLayout>
Question

I have a fragment with contains a RecyclerView with layout_width="match_parent":

<android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView 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"
    android:layout_gravity="center"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context=".MainActivity$PlaceholderFragment" />

The item in the RecyclerView is a CardView also with layout_width="match_parent":

<android.support.v7.widget.CardView
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:card_view="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:id="@+id/card_view"
    android:layout_gravity="center"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_margin="20dp"
    card_view:cardCornerRadius="4dp">

    <TextView
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:id="@+id/info_text"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:gravity="center"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:textAppearance="?android:textAppearanceLarge"/>
</android.support.v7.widget.CardView>

I inflate the item view as below:

public MyAdapter.ViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent,
                                                   int viewType) {
        CardView v = (CardView) LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext())
                .inflate(R.layout.card_listitem, null, true);

        ViewHolder vh = new ViewHolder(v);
        return vh;
    }

But when I run the app, the CardView is rendered as wrap_content as shown below:

Note that this was run on emulator, not a real device.

Am I doing something wrong, or is it a bug?




Default implementation force the use of wrap_content in the default layout manager :

  @Override
public LayoutParams generateDefaultLayoutParams() {
    return new LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,
            ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
}

All you have to do is to override this method in your LayoutManager like this :

  @Override
public LayoutParams generateDefaultLayoutParams() {
    return new LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT,
            ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
}



The way I did it is:

View view = mInflater.inflate(R.layout.row_cardview, null, true);
            WindowManager windowManager = (WindowManager)mContext.getSystemService(Context.WINDOW_SERVICE);
            int width = windowManager.getDefaultDisplay().getWidth();
            view.setLayoutParams(new RecyclerView.LayoutParams(width, RecyclerView.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT));

Explanation: In your onCreateViewHolde once you get card view, get the screen width and then set the layout param accordingly for card view.




Simply set new layout params

view.setLayoutParams(new RecyclerView.LayoutParams(
    RecyclerView.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT,
    RecyclerView.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT
));



Wrap CardView in a Layout that has width:match_parent
