View Mover Library for Android

Description

The Library allows to move the View within its parent container. While moving, translation animation is used

Requirements

The Library requires Android SDK version 9 (Gingerbread) and higher.

For API lower than Jelly Bean (version code 16) moving works as expected with FrameLayout and RelativeLayout. Working as expected with other layouts not guaranteed

Gradle Dependency

dependencies {
 compile 'com.scalified:viewmover:1.1.2'
}

View Mover has a dependency on an external UI Tools library. If it is used already in the project it must be excluded as a transitive dependency

Usage

To move the View the following steps must be performed:

  1. Create an instance of the ViewMover using ViewMoverFactory.createInstance(View) passing the View object to be moved
  2. Create the MovingParams instance, passing the necessary moving parameters
  3. Call the move(MovingParams) method on the created ViewMover object passing the MovingParams instance

Example

View view;
// ... view initialization code goes here

// Create ViewMover instance
ViewMover mover = ViewMoverFactory.createInstance(view);

// Create MovingDetails instance
MovingParams params = new MovingParams(getContext(), 300.0f, 300.0f);

// Move the view
mover.move(params);

Customization

MovingParams class contains the details of how the view must be moved:

  • xAxisDelta - X-axis delta specifies the horizontal axis distance, which View is moving at. Positive value means moving right, negative - left.
  • yAxisDelta - Y-axis delta specifies the vertical axis distance, which View is moving at. Positive value means moving down, negative - up.
  • animationDuration - the duration of translate animation, which is used to move the view. Set to 500 ms by default.
  • animationInterpolator - an animation interpolator, which is used to move the view. Not set by default.
  • animationListener - an animation listener, which is used to listen view animation events. Not set by default.

X- and Y-axis deltas are stored in MovingParams as actual pixels. When MovingParams instance created or when setting X- or Y-axis the density-independent values are converted into real ones.

MovingParams has several public constructors, allowing to create the object with different parameters:

// Define parameters
Context context = getContext();
int rightDistance = 200.0f;
int downDistance = 200.0f;
long animationDuration = 1000;
Interpolator animationInterpolator = new AccelerateInterpolator();
Animation.AnimationListener animationListener = new Animation.AnimationListener() {
    @Override
    public void onAnimationStart(Animation animation) {
    }

    @Override
    public void onAnimationEnd(Animation animation) {
    }

    @Override
    public void onAnimationRepeat(Animation animation) {
    }
};

// Declare moving parameters
MovingParams params;

// Create MovingParams object with distances, animation duration, animation interpolator and animation listener
params = new MovingParams(context, rightDistance, upDistance, animationDuration, animationInterpolator, animationListener);

// Create MovingParams object with distances, animation duration and animation listener
params = new MovingParams(context, rightDistance, upDistance, animationDuration, animationListener);

// Create MovingParams object with distances, animation duration and animation interpolator
params = new MovingParams(context, rightDistance, upDistance, animationDuration, animationInterpolator);

// Create MovingParams object with distances and animation duration
params = new MovingParams(context, rightDistance, upDistance, animationDuration);

// Create MovingParams object with distances only
params = new MovingParams(context, rightDistance, upDistance);

// Clone an existing MovingParams object
MovingParams clonedDetails = new MovingParams(params)

MovingParams X-axis and Y-axis deltas can be changed after the object is created:

// Create MovingParams object with initial parameters
MovingParams params = new MovingParams(getContext(), 200.0f, 200.0f);

// Declare the new parameters
float xAxisDelta = 100.0f;
float yAxisDelta = 100.0f;

// Apply the new parameters to MovingParams object
params.setXAxisDelta(xAxisDelta);
params.setYAxisDelta(yAxisDelta);

Logging

To enable logging:

  1. Add the following dependency:

    dependencies {
     compile 'com.github.tony19:logback-android-classic:1.1.1-3'
    }
  2. Create the logback.xml file in the src/main/assets with the sample configuration:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <configuration>
     <appender name="LOGCAT" class="ch.qos.logback.classic.android.LogcatAppender">
      <tagEncoder>
       <pattern>%logger{0}</pattern>
      </tagEncoder>
      <encoder>
       <pattern>%d{HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%thread] [%logger{0}] - %msg%n</pattern>
      </encoder>
     </appender>
    
     <root level="TRACE" additivity="false">
      <appender-ref ref="LOGCAT" />
     </root>
    </configuration>

    You may wish to configure different appenders with different log levels for packages, classes etc.

    More information about LOGBack can be found @ LOGBack Project Site

  3. Add the following InvalidPackage ignore rule into lint.xml file (located @ the root of the project):

    <issue id="InvalidPackage" >
     <ignore path="**/logback-android-core/*" />
    </issue>
