Implement Endless scrolling using StaggeredLayoutManager – Android

25 Oct

You can use one of two methods in the StaggeredGridLayoutManager:

  1. mLayoutManager.findFirstVisibleItemPositions
  2. mLayoutManager.findFirstCompletelyVisibleItemPositions

Pass an empty int array that will get initialized with the positions and use the one that makes sense for you.

private boolean loading = true;
private int pastVisibleItems, visibleItemCount, totalItemCount;

mRecyclerView.setOnScrollListener(new RecyclerView.OnScrollListener({
        public void onScrolled(RecyclerView recyclerView, int dx, int dy) {

        visibleItemCount = mLayoutManager.getChildCount();
        totalItemCount = mLayoutManager.getItemCount();
        int[] firstVisibleItems = null;
        firstVisibleItems = mLayoutManager.findFirstVisibleItemPositions(firstVisibleItems);
        if(firstVisibleItems != null && firstVisibleItems.length > 0) {
            pastVisibleItems = firstVisibleItems[0];

        if (loading) {
            if ((visibleItemCount + pastVisibleItems) >= totalItemCount) {
                loading = false;
                Log.d("tag", "LOAD NEXT ITEM");
