How to Get a RecyclerView Item at a Given Position in Android

In this android programming source code example, we are going to explore how to get a RecyclerView item at a given position in android.

This is the same as getting an item in a particular location in the list. Note that the RecyclerView index position starts from zero for the first item.

activity_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView
        android:id="@+id/list"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"/>

    <Button
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Get Item"
        android:textColor="@color/white"
        android:textStyle="bold"
        android:background="@color/colorAccent"
        android:onClick="getitem"
        android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"/>

</RelativeLayout>
