I have a layout defined in XML. It contains also:
<RelativeLayout android:id="@+id/item" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
I would like to inflate this RelativeView with other XML layout file. I may use different layouts depending on a situation. How should I do it? I was trying different variations of
RelativeLayout item = (RelativeLayout) findViewById(R.id.item); item.inflate(...)
But none of them worked fine.
I'm not sure I have followed your question- are you trying to attach a child view to the RelativeLayout? If so you want to do something along the lines of:
RelativeLayout item = (RelativeLayout)findViewById(R.id.item); View child = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.child, null); item.addView(child);
You inflate an XML resource. See the LayoutInflater doc .
If your layout is in a mylayout.xml, you would do something like:
View view; LayoutInflater inflater = (LayoutInflater) getContext().getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE); view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.mylayout, null); RelativeLayout item = (RelativeLayout) view.findViewById(R.id.item);
