Horizontal ScrollView in Android Example

Horizontal ScrollView in Android is used to scroll the elements in horizontal direction. We use android.widget.HorizontalScrollView class functionality for this scroll.

package com.androidaura.horizontalscroll;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.os.Bundle;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    }
} 
// activity_main.xml
