Edited:

Since I have been investigating in this particular subject in one of my applications, I can write an extended answer for future readers of this question.

Implement an OnScrollListener, set your ListView's onScrollListener and then you should be able to handle things correctly.

For example:

private int preLast;
// Initialization stuff.
yourListView.setOnScrollListener(this);

// ... ... ...

@Override
public void onScroll(AbsListView lw, final int firstVisibleItem,
        final int visibleItemCount, final int totalItemCount)
{

    switch(lw.getId()) 
    {
        case R.id.your_list_id:     

            // Make your calculation stuff here. You have all your
            // needed info from the parameters of this function.

            // Sample calculation to determine if the last 
            // item is fully visible.
            final int lastItem = firstVisibleItem + visibleItemCount;

            if(lastItem == totalItemCount)
            {
                if(preLast!=lastItem)
                {
                    //to avoid multiple calls for last item
                    Log.d("Last", "Last");
                    preLast = lastItem;
                }
            }
    }
}

Something to the effect of:

if (getListView().getLastVisiblePosition() == (adapter.items.size() - 1))

answered 6 years ago Martijn #3

Late answer, but if you simply wish to check whether your ListView is scrolled all the way down or not, without creating an event listener, you can use this if-statement:

if (yourListView.getLastVisiblePosition() == yourListView.getAdapter().getCount() -1 &&
    yourListView.getChildAt(yourListView.getChildCount() - 1).getBottom() <= yourListView.getHeight())
{
    //It is scrolled all the way down here

}

First it checks if the last possible position is in view. Then it checks if the bottom of the last button aligns with the bottom of the ListView. You can do something similar to know if it's all the way at the top:

if (yourListView.getFirstVisiblePosition() == 0 &&
    yourListView.getChildAt(0).getTop() >= 0)
{
    //It is scrolled all the way up here

}

This will scroll down your list to last entry.

ListView listView = new ListView(this);
listView.setLayoutParams(new LayoutParams(LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT,LayoutParams.FILL_PARENT));
listView.setTranscriptMode(ListView.TRANSCRIPT_MODE_ALWAYS_SCROLL);
listView.setStackFromBottom(true);

It was pretty painful to deal with scrolling, detecting when it is finished and it is indeed at the bottom of the list (not bottom of the visible screen), and triggers my service only once, to fetch data from the web. However it is working fine now. The code is as follows for the benefit of anybody who faces the same situation.

NOTE: I had to move my adapter related code into onViewCreated instead of onCreate and detect scrolling primarily like this:

public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem, int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {}

public void onScrollStateChanged(AbsListView view, int scrollState) {
    if (getListView().getLastVisiblePosition() == (adapter.getCount() - 1))
        if (RideListSimpleCursorAdapter.REACHED_THE_END) {
            Log.v(TAG, "Loading more data");
            RideListSimpleCursorAdapter.REACHED_THE_END = false;
            Intent intent = new Intent(getActivity().getApplicationContext(), FindRideService.class);
            getActivity().getApplicationContext().startService(intent);
        }
}

Here RideListSimpleCursorAdapter.REACHED_THE_END is an additional variable in my SimpleCustomAdapter which is set like this:

if (position == getCount() - 1) {
      REACHED_THE_END = true;
    } else {
      REACHED_THE_END = false;
    }

Only when both of these conditions meet, it means that I am indeed at the bottom of the list, and that my service will run only once. If I don't catch the REACHED_THE_END, even scrolling backwards triggers the service again, as long as the last item is in view.

To expand a bit on one of the above answers, this is what I had to do to get it working completely. There seems to be about 6dp of built-in padding inside of ListViews, and onScroll() was being called when the list was empty. This handles both of those things. It could probably be optimized a bit, but is written more for clarity.

Side note: I've tried several different dp to pixel conversion techniques, and this dp2px() one has been the best.

myListView.setOnScrollListener(new OnScrollListener() {
    public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem, int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {
        if (visibleItemCount > 0) {
            boolean atStart = true;
            boolean atEnd = true;

            View firstView = view.getChildAt(0);
            if ((firstVisibleItem > 0) ||
                    ((firstVisibleItem == 0) && (firstView.getTop() < (dp2px(6) - 1)))) {
                // not at start
                atStart = false;
            }

            int lastVisibleItem = firstVisibleItem + visibleItemCount;
            View lastView = view.getChildAt(visibleItemCount - 1);
            if ((lastVisibleItem < totalItemCount) ||
                    ((lastVisibleItem == totalItemCount) &&
                            ((view.getHeight() - (dp2px(6) - 1)) < lastView.getBottom()))
                    ) {
                        // not at end
                    atEnd = false;
                }

            // now use atStart and atEnd to do whatever you need to do
            // ...
        }
    }
    public void onScrollStateChanged(AbsListView view, int scrollState) {
    }
});

private int dp2px(int dp) {
    return (int)TypedValue.applyDimension(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_DIP, dp, getResources().getDisplayMetrics());
}

For your list to call when the list reach last and if an error happens, then this will not call the endoflistview again. This code will help this scenario as well.

@Override
public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem,
        int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {
    final int lastPosition = firstVisibleItem + visibleItemCount;
    if (lastPosition == totalItemCount) {
        if (previousLastPosition != lastPosition) { 

            //APPLY YOUR LOGIC HERE
        }
        previousLastPosition = lastPosition;
    }
    else if(lastPosition < previousLastPosition - LIST_UP_THRESHOLD_VALUE){
        resetLastIndex();
    }
}

public void resetLastIndex(){
    previousLastPosition = 0;
}

where the LIST_UP_THRESHOLD_VALUE can be any integer value(I have used 5) where your list is scrolled up and while returning to the end, this will call the end of list view again.

This can be

            @Override
            public void onScrollStateChanged(AbsListView view, int scrollState) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub

                if (scrollState == 2)
                    flag = true;
                Log.i("Scroll State", "" + scrollState);
            }

            @Override
            public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem,
                    int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {
                // TODO Auto-generated method stub
                if ((visibleItemCount == (totalItemCount - firstVisibleItem))
                        && flag) {
                    flag = false;

I found a very nice way to automatically load the next page set in a way that doesn't require your own ScrollView (like the accepted answer requires).

On ParseQueryAdapter there is a method called getNextPageView that is there to allow you to supply your own custom view that appears at the end of the list when there is more data to load so it will only trigger when you have reached the end of you current page set (it's the "load more.." view by default). This method is only called when there is more data to load so it's a great place to call loadNextPage(); This way the adapter does all the hard work for you in determining when new data should be loaded and it won't be called at all if you have reached the end of the data set.

public class YourAdapter extends ParseQueryAdapter<ParseObject> {

..

@Override
public View getNextPageView(View v, ViewGroup parent) {
   loadNextPage();
   return super.getNextPageView(v, parent);
  }

}

Then inside your activity/fragment you just have to set the adapter and new data will be automatically updated for you like magic.

adapter = new YourAdapter(getActivity().getApplicationContext());
adapter.setObjectsPerPage(15);
adapter.setPaginationEnabled(true);
yourList.setAdapter(adapter);

To detect whether the last item is fully visible, you can simple add calculation on the view's last visible item's bottom by lastItem.getBottom().

yourListView.setOnScrollListener(this);   

@Override
public void onScroll(AbsListView view, final int firstVisibleItem,
                 final int visibleItemCount, final int totalItemCount) {

    int vH = view.getHeight();
    int topPos = view.getChildAt(0).getTop();
    int bottomPos = view.getChildAt(visibleItemCount - 1).getBottom();

    switch(view.getId()) {
        case R.id.your_list_view_id:
            if(firstVisibleItem == 0 && topPos == 0) {
                //TODO things to do when the list view scroll to the top
            }

            if(firstVisibleItem + visibleItemCount == totalItemCount 
                && vH >= bottomPos) {
                //TODO things to do when the list view scroll to the bottom
            }
            break;
    }
}

I can't comment yet because I haven't got enough reputation, but in @Ali Imran and @Wroclai 's answer I think something is missing. With that piece of code, once you update preLast, it will never execute the Log again. In my specific problem, I want to execute some operation every time I scroll to the bottom, but once preLast is updated to LastItem, that operation is never executed again.

private int preLast;
// Initialization stuff.
yourListView.setOnScrollListener(this);

// ... ... ...

@Override
public void onScroll(AbsListView lw, final int firstVisibleItem,
                 final int visibleItemCount, final int totalItemCount) {

switch(lw.getId()) {
    case android.R.id.list:     

        // Make your calculation stuff here. You have all your
        // needed info from the parameters of this function.

        // Sample calculation to determine if the last 
        // item is fully visible.
         final int lastItem = firstVisibleItem + visibleItemCount;
       if(lastItem == totalItemCount) {
          if(preLast!=lastItem){ //to avoid multiple calls for last item
            Log.d("Last", "Last");
            preLast = lastItem;
          }
       } else {
            preLast = lastItem;
}

}

With that "else" you're now able to execute your code (Log, in this case) every time you scroll to the bottom once again.

    {
        int pos = totalItemCount - favoriteContactsListView.getFirstVisiblePosition() - 1;
        View last_item = favoriteContactsListView.getChildAt(pos);

        if (scrollState == AbsListView.OnScrollListener.SCROLL_STATE_IDLE 
            && (listView.getLastVisiblePosition() - listView.getHeaderViewsCount() -
            listView.getFooterViewsCount()) >= (adapter.getCount() - 1)) {

        // Now your listview has hit the bottom
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem, int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {

    }
});

canScrollVertically(int direction) works for all Views, and seems to do what you asked, with less code than most of the other answers. Plug in a positive number, and if the result is false, you're at the bottom.

ie:

if (!yourView.canScrollVertically(1)) { //you've reached bottom }

}

public void onScrollStateChanged(AbsListView view, int scrollState) {
    this.currentScrollState = scrollState;
    this.isScrollCompleted();
 }

private void isScrollCompleted() {
    if (this.currentVisibleItemCount > 0 && this.currentScrollState == SCROLL_STATE_IDLE) {
        /*** In this way I detect if there's been a scroll which has completed ***/
        /*** do the work! ***/
    }
}

finally combine Martijn's answer

OnScrollListener onScrollListener_listview = new OnScrollListener() {       

        private int currentScrollState;
        private int currentVisibleItemCount;

        @Override

In the method getView() (of a BaseAdapter-derived class) one can check if position of the current view is equal to the list of items in the Adapter. If that is the case, then it means we've reached the end/bottom of the list:

@Override
public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
    // ...

    // detect if the adapter (of the ListView/GridView) has reached the end
    if (position == getCount() - 1) {
        // ... end of list reached
    }
}

Big thanks to posters in stackoverflow! I combined some ideas and created class listener for activities and fragments (so this code is more reusable making code faster to write and much cleaner).

All you have to do when you got my class is to implement interface (and of course create method for it) which is in declared in my class and create object of this class passing arguments.

/**
* Listener for getting call when ListView gets scrolled to bottom
*/
public class ListViewScrolledToBottomListener implements AbsListView.OnScrollListener {

ListViewScrolledToBottomCallback scrolledToBottomCallback;

private int currentFirstVisibleItem;
private int currentVisibleItemCount;
private int totalItemCount;
private int currentScrollState;

public interface ListViewScrolledToBottomCallback {
    public void onScrolledToBottom();
}

public ListViewScrolledToBottomListener(Fragment fragment, ListView listView) {
    try {
        scrolledToBottomCallback = (ListViewScrolledToBottomCallback) fragment;
        listView.setOnScrollListener(this);
    } catch (ClassCastException e) {
        throw new ClassCastException(fragment.toString()
                + " must implement ListViewScrolledToBottomCallback");
    }
}

public ListViewScrolledToBottomListener(Activity activity, ListView listView) {
    try {
        scrolledToBottomCallback = (ListViewScrolledToBottomCallback) activity;
        listView.setOnScrollListener(this);
    } catch (ClassCastException e) {
        throw new ClassCastException(activity.toString()
                + " must implement ListViewScrolledToBottomCallback");
    }
}

@Override
public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem, int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {
    this.currentFirstVisibleItem = firstVisibleItem;
    this.currentVisibleItemCount = visibleItemCount;
    this.totalItemCount = totalItemCount;
}

@Override
public void onScrollStateChanged(AbsListView view, int scrollState) {
    this.currentScrollState = scrollState;
    if (isScrollCompleted()) {
        if (isScrolledToBottom()) {
            scrolledToBottomCallback.onScrolledToBottom();
        }
    }
}

private boolean isScrollCompleted() {
    if (this.currentVisibleItemCount > 0 && this.currentScrollState == SCROLL_STATE_IDLE) {
        return true;
    } else {
        return false;
    }
}

private boolean isScrolledToBottom() {
    System.out.println("First:" + currentFirstVisibleItem);
    System.out.println("Current count:" + currentVisibleItemCount);

You need to add a empty xml footer resource to your listView and detect if this footer is visible.

    private View listViewFooter;
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, @Nullable ViewGroup container, @Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_newsfeed, container, false);

        listView = (CardListView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.newsfeed_list);
        footer = inflater.inflate(R.layout.newsfeed_listview_footer, null);
        listView.addFooterView(footer);

        return rootView;
    }

Then in your listView scroll listener you do this

@
Override
public void onScroll(AbsListView view, int firstVisibleItem, int visibleItemCount, int totalItemCount) {
  if (firstVisibleItem == 0) {
    mSwipyRefreshLayout.setDirection(SwipyRefreshLayoutDirection.TOP);
    mSwipyRefreshLayout.setEnabled(true);
  } else if (firstVisibleItem + visibleItemCount == totalItemCount) //If last row is visible. In this case, the last row is the footer.
  {
    if (footer != null) //footer is a variable referencing the footer view of the ListView. You need to initialize this onCreate
    {
      if (listView.getHeight() == footer.getBottom()) { //Check if the whole footer is visible.
        mSwipyRefreshLayout.setDirection(SwipyRefreshLayoutDirection.BOTTOM);
        mSwipyRefreshLayout.setEnabled(true);
      }
    }
  } else
    mSwipyRefreshLayout.setEnabled(false);
}

If you set a tag on a view of the last item of the listview, later you can retrieve the view with the tag, if the view is null it's because the view is not loaded anymore. Like this:

private class YourAdapter extends CursorAdapter {
    public void bindView(View view, Context context, Cursor cursor) {

         if (cursor.isLast()) {
            viewInYourList.setTag("last");
         }
         else{
            viewInYourList.setTag("notLast");
         }

    }
}

then if you need to know if the last item is loaded

View last = yourListView.findViewWithTag("last");
if (last != null) {               
   // do what you want to do
}

Janwilx72 is right,but it's min sdk is 21,so i create this method:

private boolean canScrollList(@ScrollOrientation int direction, AbsListView listView) {
    final int childCount = listView.getChildCount();
    if (childCount == 0) {
        return false;
    }

    final int firstPos = listView.getFirstVisiblePosition();
    final int paddingBottom = listView.getListPaddingBottom();
    final int paddingTop = listView.getListPaddingTop();
    if (direction > 0) {
        final int lastBottom = listView.getChildAt(childCount - 1).getBottom();
        final int lastPos    = firstPos + childCount;
        return lastPos < listView.getChildCount() || lastBottom > listView.getHeight() - paddingBottom;
    } else {
        final int firstTop = listView.getChildAt(0).getTop();
        return firstPos > 0 || firstTop < paddingTop;
    }
}

for ScrollOrientation:

protected static final int SCROLL_UP = -1;
protected static final int SCROLL_DOWN = 1;
@Retention(RetentionPolicy.SOURCE)
@IntDef({SCROLL_UP, SCROLL_DOWN})
protected @interface Scroll_Orientation{}

Maybe late, just for latecommers。
