Adapter onCreateViewHolder and onBindViewHolder methods are not getting called in RecyclerView?

I am using recyclerview adapter for my fragment, but my list is not getting shown as the onCreateViewHolder() and onBindViewHolder() are not getting called. Please let me know what is the issue with my code?

MyFragment code :

public class MyFragment extends Fragment {

private Integer mCurrentPage = 1;
private Integer mChosenOrder=0;
ArrayList<MyParcelableObject> mMyList;
private RecyclerView mRecyclerView;
MyAdapter mMyAdapter;

public MyFragment() {

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                         Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_main, container, false);
     mRecyclerView= (RecyclerView) rootView.findViewById(;

    mRecyclerView.setLayoutManager(new GridLayoutManager(getContext(), 2));

    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "In oncreateview");
    if (savedInstanceState != null && savedInstanceState.getParcelableArrayList(ConstantUtil.My_LIST_KEY) != null) {
        mMyList = savedInstanceState.getParcelableArrayList(ConstantUtil.My_LIST_KEY);
    } else {
        mMyList = new ArrayList<>();

  new MyTask(getActivity(), mMyList,mMyAdapter).execute(mChosenOrder);
    mMyAdapter = new MyAdapter(getActivity(),mMyList);
    Log.e(LOG_TAG,"Adapter size oncreateview"+mMyAdapter.getItemCount());

    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "In oncreateview after attaching adapter");

    return rootView;


public void onStart() {


private void populate() {

    SharedPreferences prefs = PreferenceManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences(getActivity());
    if (prefs != null) {
        String order = prefs.getString(getString(R.string.sorting_order), getString(R.string.pref_defaultValue));
        int order_value = Integer.parseInt(order);
        if (order_value >= 0) {
            Resources resources = getResources();
            mChosenOrder = Integer.parseInt(resources.getStringArray(R.array.pref_sorting_values)[order_value]);
        } else {
            mChosenOrder = order_value;
    } else {
        mChosenOrder = Integer.parseInt(getString(R.string.pref_defaultValue));

   new MyTask(getActivity(),mMyList,mMyAdapter).execute(mChosenOrder);

    Log.e(LOG_TAG,"populate Adapter size "+mMyAdapter.getItemCount());


public void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle outState) {

    outState.putParcelableArrayList(ConstantUtil.My_LIST_KEY, mMyList);

Async Task code

public class MyTask extends AsyncTask<Integer, Void, MyParcelableObject[]> {

private Context context;
private List<MyParcelableObject> mMyParcelableObjects;
private RecyclerView recyclerView;
MyAdapter myAdapter;

public MyTask(Context context, List<MyParcelableObject> myParcelableObjects,MyAdapter myAdapter) {
    this.context = context;
    mMyParcelableObjects = myParcelableObjects;
    this.myAdapter = myAdapter;
    //this.imageAdapter = imageAdapter;
    this.recyclerView = recyclerView;

protected MyParcelableObject[] doInBackground(Integer... params) {
    HttpURLConnection urlConnection = null;
    BufferedReader reader = null;
    String myStr[] = null;
    // Will contain the raw JSON response as a string.
    String myStrJsonStr = null;
    Uri buildUri = null;
    MyParcelableObject[] myParcelableObjects = null;
    //try {
    //  Context context = getApplicationContext();
ArrayList<MyParcelableObject> myParcelableObjectArrayList = null;
    String[] sortOrder = context.getResources().getStringArray(R.array.pref_sorting_values);
    int sort = Integer.parseInt(sortOrder[0]);

    myParcelableObjectArrayList = getJsonFromUri(params[0]);        //correctly gets the json array
    if (myParcelableObjectArrayList != null) {

            myParcelableObjects = myParcelableObjectArrayList.toArray(new MyParcelableObject[myParcelableObjectArrayList.size()]);
            return myParcelableObjects;

    return null;

 * @param results
protected void onPostExecute(MyParcelableObject[] results) {
    Log.e(LOG_TAG, "In onPostExecute");

    if (results != null) {
        mMyParcelableObjects = Arrays.asList(results);
        myAdapter = new MyAdapter(context,mMyParcelableObjects);

        Log.e(LOG_TAG,"adapter size"+myAdapter.getItemCount());


Adapter code

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

List<MyParcelableObject> mParcelableObjects;
ViewHolder mViewHolder;
Context mContext;

public MyAdapter(Context context, List<MyParcelableObject> parcelableObjects) {
    mParcelableObjects = parcelableObjects;

public static class ViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
    public ImageView mImageView;

    public ViewHolder(View view) {
        mImageView = (ImageView) view.findViewById(;


public MyAdapter.ViewHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {

    Log.e("LOG_TAG","in on onCreateViewHolder");
    View v = LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext())
            .inflate(R.layout.content_main, parent, false);

    ViewHolder vh = new ViewHolder(v);
    return vh;

public void onBindViewHolder(MyAdapter.ViewHolder holder, int position) {
    Log.e("LOG_TAG","in on onBindViewHolder");
    String myPoster = null;
    MyParcelableObject myParcelableObject = mParcelableObjects.get(position);
    if (myParcelableObject.poster_path != null) {
        myPoster = myParcelableObject.poster_path.replaceAll("/", "");
    Uri uri = Uri.parse(ConstantUtil.POSTER_URL).buildUpon().

public int getItemCount() {

    return mParcelableObjects.size();


You are not getting value because your list is empty. replace this

new MyTask(getActivity(), mMyList,mMyAdapter).execute(mChosenOrder);

to this

mMyList  = new MyTask(getActivity(), mMyList,mMyAdapter).execute(mChosenOrder).get();
