Announcement

Flick

Flick is a tiny library for flick dismissing images (or anything actually). You can read the announcement blog post to learn how Flick was created.

implementation 'me.saket:flick:1.7.0'

Usage

The sample project contains best practices for using Flick. You can download its APK from here for trying it out on your phone.

<me.saket.flick.FlickDismissLayout
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="wrap_content">

  <ImageView
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
</me.saket.flick.FlickDismissLayout>

Flick requires you to manually provide the content dimensions instead of it relying on the content View's dimensions. This is useful for scalable ImageViews, where the height will always be set to match-parent, but the actual image may or may not be consuming the entire space.

val callbacks = object : FlickCallbacks {
  override fun onMove(@FloatRange(from = -1.0, to = 1.0) moveRatio: Float) {
    // The content is being moved around. Updating the
    // background dimming is a good usecase for this callback.
  }

  override fun onFlickDismiss(animationDuration: Long) {
    // The content was been flicked and the Activity should
    // be dismissed once the flick animation is complete.
    flickDismissLayout.postDelayed({ finish() }, animationDuration)
  }
}
val contentSizeProvider = ContentSizeProvider2 { imageView.zoomedImageHeight() },
flickDismissLayout.gestureListener = FlickGestureListener(context, contentSizeProvider, callbacks)

Intercepting flicks

For usecases where the content can be scrolled further in the direction of the gesture, Flick exposes a way for intercepting flick detection,

// Block flick gestures if the image can pan further.
gestureListener.gestureInterceptor = { scrollY ->
  val isScrollingUpwards = scrollY < 0
  val directionInt = if (isScrollingUpwards) -1 else +1
  val canPanFurther = imageView.canScrollVertically(directionInt)

  when {
    canPanFurther -> InterceptResult.INTERCEPTED
    else -> InterceptResult.IGNORED
  }
}
