public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    ArrayList<row_data>arrContacts;
    RecyclerView recyclerView;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        recyclerView=findViewById(R.id.recyclerContact);
        recyclerView.setLayoutManager(new LinearLayoutManager(this));
        arrContacts.add(new row_data("Christopher","9876513450",R.drawable.peter));
        arrContacts.add(new row_data("Rudraksh","9876513450",R.drawable.avatar2));
        arrContacts.add(new row_data("Keshav","9873403450",R.drawable.e));

        RecyclerAdapter contactAdapter=new RecyclerAdapter(getApplicationContext(),arrContacts);
        recyclerView.setAdapter(contactAdapter);
    }
}

** Row data java class to set type of arraylist to store three types of data**

package com.example.custom_listapp;

public class row_data {
    String name,number;
    int image;
    public row_data(String name,String number,int image){
        this.image=image;
        this.name=name;
        this.number=number;
    }
}

**Recycler adapter class **

package com.example.custom_listapp;

import android.content.Context;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.widget.TextView;

import androidx.annotation.NonNull;
import androidx.recyclerview.widget.RecyclerView;

import org.jetbrains.annotations.NotNull;

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class RecyclerAdapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<RecyclerAdapter.Viewholder> {
    ArrayList<row_data> arrContacts;
    Context context;
    public RecyclerAdapter(Context context, ArrayList<row_data> arrContacts){
        this.context=context;
        this.arrContacts=arrContacts;
    }

    @NotNull
    @Override
    public Viewholder onCreateViewHolder(@NonNull ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
        View v=LayoutInflater.from(context).inflate(R.layout.list_row,parent,false);
        return new Viewholder(v);
    }

    @Override
    public void onBindViewHolder(@NonNull  Viewholder holder, int position) {
    holder.img.setImageResource(arrContacts.get(position).image);
    holder.txtnumber.setText(arrContacts.get(position).number);
    holder.txtname.setText(arrContacts.get(position).name);
    }

    @Override
    public int getItemCount() {
        
        return arrContacts.size();
    }


    public  class Viewholder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder{
      TextView txtname,txtnumber;
      ImageView img;
        public Viewholder(@NonNull View itemView) {
            super(itemView);
            this.txtname=itemView.findViewById(R.id.txtname);
            this.txtnumber=itemView.findViewById(R.id.txtnumber);
            this.img=itemView.findViewById(R.id.contactimg);
        }

    }
}

Android manifest file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.example.custom_listapp">

    <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
        android:supportsRtl="true"
        android:theme="@style/Theme.Custom_listApp">
        <activity android:name=".MainActivity"
            android:exported="true">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>

</manifest>

Still my App is crashing like app has been stopped dialog appears . I don’t know whats the problem.

Solution

Init arrContacts = newArrayList<row_data>(); before use it.
