I have a
xml-layout file main with two textviews A/B and a view C.
I have two other
Is it possible to load either
option2 in run time via Java into C? If so, what function do I have to use?
You could replace any view at any time.
int optionId = someExpression ? R.layout.option1 : R.layout.option2; View C = findViewById(R.id.C); ViewGroup parent = (ViewGroup) C.getParent(); int index = parent.indexOfChild(C); parent.removeView(C); C = getLayoutInflater().inflate(optionId, parent, false); parent.addView(C, index);
If you don't want to replace already existing View, but choose between option1/option2 at initialization time, then you could do this easier: set
android:id for parent layout and then:
ViewGroup parent = (ViewGroup) findViewById(R.id.parent); View C = getLayoutInflater().inflate(optionId, parent, false); parent.addView(C, index);
You will have to set "index" to proper value depending on views structure. You could also use a ViewStub: add your C view as ViewStub and then:
ViewStub C = (ViewStub) findViewById(R.id.C); C.setLayoutResource(optionId); C.inflate();
That way you won't have to worry about above "index" value if you will want to restructure your XML layout.
