Answer

You can generate a GridView dynamically.

GridView would contain of ImageView and TextView as per your need. You will have to use your custom adapter. In it's getView method, populate the ImageView and TextView.

Example:

GridView item.xml:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical" >

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/imgItem"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:src="@drawable/ic_launcher" />

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/txtItem"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="center"
        android:fontFamily="trebuchet"
        android:textColor="@android:color/black"
        android:textSize="15sp"
        android:textStyle="bold" />

</LinearLayout>

Java code:

A POJO class for item:

public class Item
{
    String title;
    Drawable image;
    //getter setter
}

Adapter class:

//getView method in your adapter class

@Override
public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent)
{
    View itemView = convertView;
    ViewHolder holder = null;

    if (itemView == null)
    {
        final LayoutInflater layoutInflater =
            (LayoutInflater) mContext.getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
        itemView = layoutInflater.inflate(resourceId, parent, false);

        holder = new ViewHolder();
        holder.imgItem = (ImageView) itemView.findViewById(R.id.imgItem);
        holder.txtItem = (TextView) itemView.findViewById(R.id.txtItem);
        itemView.setTag(holder);
    }
    else
    {
        holder = (ViewHolder) itemView.getTag();
    }

    Item item = getItem(position);
    holder.imgItem.setImageDrawable(item.getImage());
    holder.txtItem.setText(item.getTitle());

    return itemView;
}

Now add adapter data in your Activity class and then set that adapter to GridView.
