Java – RecyclerView scrolled UP/DOWN listener

androidandroid-recyclerviewjavaonscrolllistener

How do we know if user scrolled down or up in RecyclerView ?

I tried with RecyclerView#OnScrollListener , it gives the amount of vertical scroll and the scroll state. How do we get the last scroll position when started to dragging and scrolled position when scroll state idle.

The accepted answer works fine, but @MaciejPigulski gave more clear and neat solution in the comment below. I just putting it as an answer here. Here's my working code.

mRecyclerView.addOnScrollListener(new RecyclerView.OnScrollListener() {

    @Override
    public void onScrolled(RecyclerView recyclerView, int dx, int dy) {
        super.onScrolled(recyclerView, dx, dy);
        if (dy > 0) {
            // Scrolling up
        } else {
            // Scrolling down
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void onScrollStateChanged(RecyclerView recyclerView, int newState) {
        super.onScrollStateChanged(recyclerView, newState);

        if (newState == AbsListView.OnScrollListener.SCROLL_STATE_FLING) {
            // Do something
        } else if (newState == AbsListView.OnScrollListener.SCROLL_STATE_TOUCH_SCROLL) {
            // Do something
        } else {
            // Do something
        }
    }
});
