How to pass AttributeSet when creating programmtically in android

I create programmtically like horizontalview then, how to pass AttributeSet in programmtically.

My constructor looks like this:

public HorizontalListView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
super(context, attrs);
}


I have try this:

mHlvSimpleList= new HorizontalListView(mcontext,R.style.niceview);


Error:


The constructor HorizontalListView(Context, int) is undefined


in style.xml

<style name="niceview">
<item name="android:layout_width">wrap_content</item>
<item name="android:layout_height">wrap_content</item>

</style>


Any idea , how to pass AttributeSet in horizontalistview constructor matching parameter.

Answer

The constructor with Context and AttributeSet is used when your view is inflated from xml. You shouldn't use it to create object. You should use constructor with Context as param.

AttributeSet is interface and you can create instance of then and implement all method as is shown below:

AttributeSet attrs = new AttributeSet(){
        @Override
        public int getAttributeCount() {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public String getAttributeName(int index) {
            return null;
        }

        @Override
        public String getAttributeValue(int index) {
            return null;
        }

        @Override
        public String getAttributeValue(String namespace, String name) {
            return null;
        }

        @Override
        public String getPositionDescription() {
            return null;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeNameResource(int index) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeListValue(String namespace, String attribute, String[] options, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public boolean getAttributeBooleanValue(String namespace, String attribute, boolean defaultValue) {
            return false;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeResourceValue(String namespace, String attribute, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeIntValue(String namespace, String attribute, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeUnsignedIntValue(String namespace, String attribute, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public float getAttributeFloatValue(String namespace, String attribute, float defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeListValue(int index, String[] options, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public boolean getAttributeBooleanValue(int index, boolean defaultValue) {
            return false;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeResourceValue(int index, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeIntValue(int index, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getAttributeUnsignedIntValue(int index, int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public float getAttributeFloatValue(int index, float defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public String getIdAttribute() {
            return null;
        }

        @Override
        public String getClassAttribute() {
            return null;
        }

        @Override
        public int getIdAttributeResourceValue(int defaultValue) {
            return 0;
        }

        @Override
        public int getStyleAttribute() {
            return 0;
        }
    }; 

And use it

TextView textView = new TextView(this, attrs);

but it is not correct way.

You should use methods from your view to set properties of view.

For example to set LayoutParams is two way to do this

First by method setLayoutParams()

view.setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT));

The second when you added your view to ViewGroup;

viewGroup.addView(yourView, new ViewGroup.LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT));

When you have or you want to add your view to for example to RelativeLayout you should use LayoutParams relevant for this ViewGroup. It is RelativeLayout.LayoutParams
