Announcement

Probe

Dissect layout traversals on Android.

Features

  • Intercept View methods.
    • onMeasure(int, int)
    • onLayout(boolean, int, int, int, int)
    • draw(Canvas) and onDraw(Canvas)
    • requestLayout()
  • Override any of these methods on-the-fly.
  • Layout debugging:
    • OvermeasureInterceptor: Tints views according to the number of times they got measured in a single traversal.
    • LayoutBoundsInterceptor: Equivalent to Android's "Show layout bounds" developer option. The main difference being that you can show bounds only for specific views.

Usage

  1. Add buildscript dependency:
buildscript {
    ...
    dependencies {
        ...
        classpath 'org.lucasr.probe:gradle-plugin:0.1.3'
    }
}
  1. Apply the plugin to your app’s build.gradle:
apply plugin: 'org.lucasr.probe'
  1. Enable Probe on a build variant:
probe {
    buildVariants {
        debug {
            enabled = true
        }
    }
}
  1. Implement an Interceptor:
public class DrawGreen extends Interceptor {
    private final Paint mPaint;

    public DrawGreen() {
        mPaint = new Paint();
        mPaint.setColor(Color.GREEN);
    }

    @Override
    public void onDraw(View view, Canvas canvas) {
        canvas.drawPaint(mPaint);
    }
}
  1. Deploy your Interceptor with an (optional) Filter:
public final class MainActivity extends Activity {
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        Probe.deploy(this, new DrawGreen(), new Filter.ViewId(R.id.view2));
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.id.main_activity);
    }
}
