Detect click on RecyclerView outside of items

Detect click on RecyclerView outside of items

I wish did fix the issue. You can subclass RecyclerView and override the dispatchTouchEvent() method to accomplish this. Using the findChildViewUnder() method, we can determine if a touch event occurs outside of the child Views, and use an interface to notify a listener if it is. In the following example, the OnNoChildClickListener interface provides that functionality.
code :
public class TouchyRecyclerView extends RecyclerView
    // Depending on how you're creating this View,
    // you might need to specify additional constructors.
    public TouchyRecyclerView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs)
        super(context, attrs);

    private OnNoChildClickListener listener;
    public interface OnNoChildClickListener
        public void onNoChildClick();

    public void setOnNoChildClickListener(OnNoChildClickListener listener)
        this.listener = listener;

    public boolean dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent event)
        // The findChildViewUnder() method returns null if the touch event
        // occurs outside of a child View.
        // Change the MotionEvent action as needed. Here we use ACTION_DOWN
        // as a simple, naive indication of a click.
        if (event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN
            && findChildViewUnder(event.getX(), event.getY()) == null)
            if (listener != null)
        return super.dispatchTouchEvent(event);

wish help you to fix your issue I've tried to set up a click and toch listener for my RecyclerView with tutorials. But every tutorial I've tried I finaly failed because I've set the RecyclerView up with an other tutorial and all tutorials are looking different. Please can you help me detect click for each row? For example when a user clicks my first row (which is a logout field) it should logout the user from the app. All of my logout actions are working but the click on RecyclerView don't.
code :
    public void onBindViewHolder(MySettingHolder holder, int position) {
        // Setting for one entry
        Settings setting = settingList.get(position);

        // If the settingSubtitle is empty it should be not visible and just the settingTitle
        if (setting.getSettingSubtitle().equals("")) {
        } else {

        holder.type = setting.getType();
        holder.itemView.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            public void onClick(View v) {
                MySettingHolder holder = (MySettingHolder )(v.getTag());
                switch (holder.type) {

                    case 1:                        
                        // do logout

                    case 2:                        
                        // do other stuff


        // set viewholder
public class MySettingHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {

        public int type;
        public ImageView settingImage;
        public TextView settingTitle, settingSubtitle;

        public MySettingHolder(View view) {
            settingImage = (ImageView) view.findViewById(R.id.settingImage);
            settingTitle = (TextView) view.findViewById(R.id.settingTitle);
            settingSubtitle = (TextView) view.findViewById(R.id.settingSubtitle);
RecyclerView.ViewHolder On Click Items

seems to work fine You will implement your OnClick event handler in the Activity/Fragment where instance of your Adapter is created.
This line means you are making the ItemClick event public in your adapter class.
code :
public event EventHandler<PdfAdapterClickEventArgs> ItemClick;
var adapter = new PdfAdapter(data);
adapter.ItemClick += OnItemClick;
myRecyclerView. SetAdapter(adapter);
public void OnItemClick(object sender, PdfAdapterClickEventArgs e)
   var view = args.View; //this is your view
   Toast.MakeText(this, $"Item Position: {args?.Position}", ToastLength.Short).Show();

            View child = recyclerView.findChildViewUnder(e.getX(), e.getY());
            if (child != null && mListener != null) {
                mListener.onLongItemClick(child, recyclerView.getChildAdapterPosition(child));

  @Override public boolean onInterceptTouchEvent(RecyclerView view, MotionEvent e) {
    View childView = view.findChildViewUnder(e.getX(), e.getY());
    if (childView != null && mListener != null && mGestureDetector.onTouchEvent(e)) {
      mListener.onItemClick(childView, view.getChildAdapterPosition(childView));
      return true;
    return false;

  @Override public void onTouchEvent(RecyclerView view, MotionEvent motionEvent) { }

  public void onRequestDisallowInterceptTouchEvent (boolean disallowIntercept){}

I hope this helps you . I'm learning Android and I'm testing things with RecyclerView. I wanted to add an OnItemClickListener, I wanted to see if works so I made a Toast appear each time I click on items, but something weird happens, only triggers when I click BETWEEN cards of Recycler, not when I click items. I've been looking for people with the same problem but didn't found anything. , I fixed it! Apparently if you have the attribute:
