android stop How to handle multiple countdown timers in ListView?




how to stop countdown timer in android (4)

It might be late but this is recyclerView version using php and json based on excellent answer of @Eldhose M Babu. Hope to be helpful :)

Adapter.java

and for url part you can do something kind of:

<?php

$arr = array(
array(
        'name' => "Android",
        'expirationTime' => 1456860322 * 1000, // timestamp multiply for display in milliseconds
),
array(
        'name' => "Android 2",
        'expirationTime' => 1456900522 * 1000,
),
array(
        'name' => "Android 3",
        'expirationTime' =>  1459509819 * 1000,
),
array(
        'name' => "Android 4",
        'expirationTime' => 1457021950 * 1000,
),
);

echo json_encode($arr);

I have a listview (with a custom list adapter), I need to display a countdown on every row.

For example, if my list contains 4 items, I will have 4 rows. At this point, I need to handle 4 different countdowns (one for each row) because time is different.

So far, I'm handling it the following way : in the Custom List Adapter, inside getView() method I create a new CountDownTimer and display remaining time inside TextView.

But the problem is that it slows the activity a lot, I can't even scroll correctly in the worst cases (because each time a row is displayed, it creates a new CountDownTimer).

I searched a lot for a better solution, but no one was satisfying.

Is there a cleaner and smoother solution to handle multiple countdown timers inside a listView ?

Thanks


Instead of trying to show the remaining time for all, the idea is to update the remaining time for the items which are visible.

Please follow the following sample code and let me know :

MainActivity :

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

private ListView lvItems;
private List<Product> lstProducts;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    lvItems = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.lvItems);
    lstProducts = new ArrayList<>();
    lstProducts.add(new Product("A", System.currentTimeMillis() + 10000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("B", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("C", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("D", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("E", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("F", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("G", System.currentTimeMillis() + 30000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("H", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("I", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("J", System.currentTimeMillis() + 40000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("K", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("L", System.currentTimeMillis() + 50000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("M", System.currentTimeMillis() + 60000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("N", System.currentTimeMillis() + 20000));
    lstProducts.add(new Product("O", System.currentTimeMillis() + 10000));

    lvItems.setAdapter(new CountdownAdapter(MainActivity.this, lstProducts));
}

private class Product {
    String name;
    long expirationTime;

    public Product(String name, long expirationTime) {
        this.name = name;
        this.expirationTime = expirationTime;
    }
}


public class CountdownAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<Product> {

                    holder.updateTimeRemaining(currentTime);
                }
            }
        }
    };

    public CountdownAdapter(Context context, List<Product> objects) {
        super(context, 0, objects);
        lf = LayoutInflater.from(context);
        lstHolders = new ArrayList<>();
        startUpdateTimer();
    }

    private void startUpdateTimer() {
        Timer tmr = new Timer();
        tmr.schedule(new TimerTask() {
            @Override

                mHandler.post(updateRemainingTimeRunnable);
