public class MainActivity extends Activity {
 GridView gridView;
 ArrayList<Item> gridArray = new ArrayList<Item>();
  CustomGridViewAdapter customGridAdapter;

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

  //set grid view item
  Bitmap homeIcon = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(this.getResources(), R.drawable.home);
  Bitmap userIcon = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(this.getResources(), R.drawable.personal);

  gridArray.add(new Item(homeIcon,"Home"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(userIcon,"User"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(homeIcon,"House"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(userIcon,"Friend"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(homeIcon,"Home"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(userIcon,"Personal"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(homeIcon,"Home"));

  gridArray.add(new Item(homeIcon,"Building"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(userIcon,"User"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(homeIcon,"Home"));
  gridArray.add(new Item(userIcon,"xyz"));

  gridView = (GridView) findViewById(R.id.gridView1);
  customGridAdapter = new CustomGridViewAdapter(this, R.layout.row_grid, gridArray);
  gridView.setAdapter(customGridAdapter);
 }

    Hi Manish, I see you post and want to give you a little advice as you use ArrayAdapter you shouldn’t creating a new ArrayList data = new ArrayList(); all your Items storing in inner ArrayAdaper’ ArrayList and you can get it using getItem(position) method in adapter
