A very simple library that allows you to stick any View as a header of a:

  • ListView
  • RecyclerView
  • ScrollView

Adding a Sticky Header

To stick a header to a list view, we just need a ListView and any View to use as the header:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />
            android:text="Hello World!"
            android:textSize="25dp" />

Once we have the layout inflated, we can use the StickyHeaderBuilder to attach the header to the list:

var listView = container.FindViewById<ListView>(Resource.Id.listview);
    .SetHeader(Resource.Id.header, container)

Using a Sticky Header Animator

There are various animations that can be used when transitioning the header. This is easily done with the AnimatorBuilder type. Some of the built in transitions are:

  • Scale
  • Translation
  • Fade
  • Parallax

For simple transitions, we can pass a delegate that returns an AnimatorBuilder to the SetAnimator method:

.SetAnimator(() => {
    var image = View.FindViewById(Resource.Id.header_image);
    return AnimatorBuilder

If we need more complex transitions, we can inherit from HeaderStickyAnimator:

public class IconActionBarAnimator : HeaderStickyAnimator
	private readonly View homeActionBar;
	private readonly int layoutResource;

	public IconActionBarAnimator(Activity activity, int layoutResource)
		this.layoutResource = layoutResource;
		this.homeActionBar = activity.FindViewById(Android.Resource.Id.Home);

	public override AnimatorBuilder CreateAnimatorBuilder()
		var view = Header.FindViewById(layoutResource);
		var rect = new RectangleF(
			homeActionBar.Left, homeActionBar.Top,
			homeActionBar.Right, homeActionBar.Bottom);
		var point = new PointF(homeActionBar.Left, homeActionBar.Top);
		return AnimatorBuilder
			.ApplyScale(view, rect)
			.ApplyTranslation(view, point);
