TextSurface

A little animation framework which could help you to show message in a nice looking way.

Usage

  1. Create TextSurface instance or add it in your layout.
  2. Create Text instancies with TextBuilder defining appearance of text and position:
Text textDaai = TextBuilder
  .create("Daai")
  .setSize(64)
  .setAlpha(0)
  .setColor(Color.WHITE)
  .setPosition(Align.SURFACE_CENTER).build();
  1. Create animations and pass them to the TextSurface instance:
textSurface.play(
  new Sequential(
    Slide.showFrom(Side.TOP, textDaai, 500),
    Delay.duration(500),
    Alpha.hide(textDaai, 1500)
  )
);

See full sample here.

Adjusting animations

  • To play animations sequentially use Sequential.java

  • To play animations simultaneously use Parallel.java

  • Animations/effects could be combined like this:

    new Parallel(Alpha.show(textA, 500), ChangeColor.to(textA, 500, Color.RED))

    i.e. alpha and color of text will be changed simultaneously in 500ms

Adding your own animations/effects

There're two basic classes which you could extend to add custom animation:

Proguard configuration

The framework is based on standard android animation classes which uses reflection extensively. To avoid obfuscation you need to exclude classes of the framework:

-keep class su.levenetc.android.textsurface.** { *; }
