Recyclerview with padding and clipping first item

As usual in example: <android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView android:clipToPadding=”false” android:paddingBottom=”@dimen/activity_vertical_margin” android:paddingTop=”@dimen/activity_vertical_margin” android:id=”@+id/recyclerView” android:layout_width=”match_parent” android:layout_height=”match_parent” /> The golden trinity is: android:clipToPadding=”false” android:paddingBottom=”@dimen/activity_vertical_margin” android:paddingTop=”@dimen/activity_vertical_margin” More info here: http://stackoverflow.com/q/24914191/619673
