Android RecyclerView Decorations suggest change

Drawing a Separator

This will draw a line at the bottom of every view but the last to act as a separator between items.

public class SeparatorDecoration extends RecyclerView.ItemDecoration {

    private final Paint mPaint;
    private final int mAlpha;

    public SeparatorDecoration(@ColorInt int color, float width) {
        mPaint = new Paint();
        mPaint.setColor(color);
        mPaint.setStrokeWidth(width);
        mAlpha = mPaint.getAlpha();
    }

    @Override
    public void getItemOffsets(Rect outRect, View view, RecyclerView parent, RecyclerView.State state) {
        final RecyclerView.LayoutParams params = (RecyclerView.LayoutParams) view.getLayoutParams();

        // we retrieve the position in the list
        final int position = params.getViewAdapterPosition();

        // add space for the separator to the bottom of every view but the last one
        if (position < state.getItemCount()) {
            outRect.set(0, 0, 0, (int) mPaint.getStrokeWidth()); // left, top, right, bottom
        } else {
            outRect.setEmpty(); // 0, 0, 0, 0
        }
    }

    @Override
    public void onDraw(Canvas c, RecyclerView parent, RecyclerView.State state) {
        // a line will draw half its size to top and bottom,
        // hence the offset to place it correctly
        final int offset = (int) (mPaint.getStrokeWidth() / 2);

        // this will iterate over every visible view
        for (int i = 0; i < parent.getChildCount(); i++) {
            final View view = parent.getChildAt(i);
            final RecyclerView.LayoutParams params = (RecyclerView.LayoutParams) view.getLayoutParams();

            // get the position
            final int position = params.getViewAdapterPosition();

            // and finally draw the separator
            if (position < state.getItemCount()) {
                // apply alpha to support animations
                mPaint.setAlpha((int) (view.getAlpha() * mAlpha));

                float positionY = view.getBottom() + offset + view.getTranslationY();
                // do the drawing
                c.drawLine(view.getLeft() + view.getTranslationX(),
                        positionY,
                        view.getRight() + view.getTranslationX(),
                        positionY,
                        mPaint);
            }
        }
    }
}
