Sample demonstrating the use of RecyclerView to layout elements with a LinearLayoutManager or with a GridLayoutManager.

RecyclerView can display large datasets that can be scrolled efficiently by recycling a limited number of views. Click listeners can be defined when ViewHolder views are instantiated. RecyclerView is available in the v7 Support Library, thus compatible with API level 7 and above.

Tap “Show Log” menu item to display log of elements as they are laid out and tapped. Use radio buttons to toggle between LinearLayoutManager and GridLayoutManager.
