Android Constrained Widgets

This library offers a set of widgets that will respect a given aspect ratio while allowing to set relative dimensions. For instance, you can have a layout that extends to the whole available width but whose height will be adjusted to always keep a square shape.

Demo

A demo of the widget is worth a thousand words. You can download it for free on Google Play.

Usage

The easiest way to get the library included in your project is by using Gradle. Simply add the following line to your dependencies block:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.marvinlabs:android-constrained-widgets:1.2.+@aar'
}

Of course, you can replace the version number by whichever version you need (you can have a look at this repository's tags to know which is the latest).

You can then integrate the widgets in your layouts in XML like that:

    <!-- Define the app namespace in the root layout: 
          xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto" -->

    <!-- Below is a 16/9 image that will use the whole available width -->

    <com.marvinlabs.widget.aspectratio.ConstrainedImageView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:scaleType="centerCrop"
            app:aspectRatioWidth="16"
            app:aspectRatioHeight="9"
            app:fixedDimension="width">
