Rendering Problems: java.lang.NullPointerException at android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView in Android Studio 1.1.0

I have recently updated android sdk to api 22 and android studio 1.1.0. After that I am getting rendering issues on RecyclerView. Here is what I am getting

I am getting this exception on xml preview/design, so I am not able to
view the xml design.


The project is working fine without any exception.
Here is my widget

<android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView
android:id="@+id/my_recycler_view"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="0dp"
android:layout_weight="8"
android:layout_gravity="center"
android:gravity="center"
android:scrollbars="vertical"
android:fadeScrollbars="false"
/>


This is my code

recyclerView= (RecyclerView) findViewById(R.id.my_recycler_view);
layoutManager=new GridLayoutManager(this,2);
recyclerView.setLayoutManager(layoutManager);
recyclerView.setHasFixedSize(true);
recyclerView.setItemAnimator(new DefaultItemAnimator());


How to solve this issue?

Answer

My problem was solved when I took out this line from the xml file for the RecyclerView:

android:scrollbars="vertical"

I am using the following dependencies:

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:22.0.0'
    compile 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:22.0.0'
    compile 'com.android.support:cardview-v7:22.0.0'
}

EDIT: The root of this issue was pointed out by commentators on this solution - to solve the problem, you can just ensure that the LayoutManager for the RecyclerView is set before you display the RecyclerView with the scrollbars property set.
