I have made a meme app, which fetches image url from an API and i m parsing them and showing in recyler view using Glide , in my item layout i have two buttons one for sharing and one for download Image , i want when user clicks the download button the images get download to the user phone.

Help me how i can implement this.

MyAdapter class

public class Adapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<Adapter.ViewHolder> {

Context context;
 ArrayList<Model> modelArrayList;

public Adapter(Context context, ArrayList<Model> modelArrayList) {
    this.context = context;
    this.modelArrayList = modelArrayList;
}

@NonNull
@Override
public ViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(@NonNull ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {

    View view = LayoutInflater.from(context).inflate(R.layout.item_layout, parent,false);

    return new ViewHolder(view);
}

@Override
public void onBindViewHolder(@NonNull ViewHolder holder, int position) {

    String url = modelArrayList.get(position).getUrl();
      holder.setImage(url);
      holder.button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
          @Override
          public void onClick(View view) {
              Intent sharing = new Intent (Intent.ACTION_SEND);
              sharing.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
              sharing.setType("text/plain");
              String subject = "Hey Man just look at this coll meme click the link " +url;
              sharing.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT,subject);
              context.startActivity(Intent.createChooser(sharing,"Shring using"));
          }
      });

      holder.buttonDownload.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
          @Override
          public void onClick(View view) {

          }
      });

}

@Override
public int getItemCount() {
    return modelArrayList.size();
}

public class  ViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder{

    ImageView imageView;
    Button button,buttonDownload;

    public ViewHolder(@NonNull View itemView) {
        super(itemView);

        imageView = itemView.findViewById(R.id.imageView);
        button = itemView.findViewById(R.id.button);
        buttonDownload = itemView.findViewById(R.id.btn_download);
    }

    void setImage(String link){
        Glide.with(context).load(link).into(imageView);
    }
}

}

My model class

public class Model {

String url;

public Model(String url) {
    this.url = url;
}

public String getUrl() {
    return url;
}

public void setUrl(String url) {
    this.url = url;
}


}

My mainactivity.java

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

 RecyclerView recyclerView;

@Override

                        recyclerView.setAdapter(adapter);
                        adapter.notifyDataSetChanged();

Answer

Glide allows to load a Bitmap.

you can save Bitmap to file, and then just pass file path to another screen.

Here you can find detailed tutorial, how to store image to file with Glide library:

And don’t forget about storage permissions.
