Android :: Animated Widgets

Jun 20, 2010

I would like to make a simple 2x2 widget that displays a canvas that's updated every second - how can I go about doing this? I noticed you can't make the onUpdate() update more than every half hour now, so that shoots down that idea...

Android :: Android - Transforming Widgets Within Transformed Widgets - Usability

Jun 2, 2010

I'm new to Android application development and I'm currently experimenting with various UI ideas. In the image below, you can see a vertically scrolling list of horizontally scrolling galleries (and also textviews as you can see). I'm also doing some matrix and camera transformations which I will come to in a minute.
For the background of the list elements, I use green. Blue is the background of the galleries, and red is the background for the images. These are just for my benefit of learning.

The galleries being used are extended classes where I overrode the drawChild method to perform a canvas scale operation in order for the image closest to the center (width) to be larger than the others. The list view going vertically, I overrode the drawChild method and used the camera rotations from lack of depth dimension in the canvas functionality. The items in the list are scaled down and rotated relative to their position's proximity to the center (height).............

Android :: Animated Map Overlay

Feb 17, 2009

I am trying to make a map overlay animated much like MyLocationOverlay does. Currently the only things that I can see to make animated are Views but Overlays don't extend View functionality. My next thought was to try to lodge a View into the overlay, but the redundancy makes it seem like this solution is incorrect. I grabbed the android source hoping that I could just look at MyLocationOverlay source and that would let me know how the animation was supposed to be done, but I can't find the source for anything involving maps. If that is available somewhere it would help. Can someone point me to the MyLocationOverlay source or let me know what the paradigm is supposed to look like for animating map overlays?

Android :: Any Weather With Animated Radar

Aug 23, 2010

Any good weather apps(or direct sites) with ANIMATED radar that will load on non-Flash Android.Droid-X(until Froyo comes out...for real).I noticed Weather Channel DOES have an animated app that will load but it takes forever for it to load slower than animated radar would load on my Storm(which was relatively quick) but I thought this Droid-X was supposed to be fast. Yeah I know the problem is probably on TWC's side of things as they always seem to be slow.Had Accuweather on the Storm and I had the animated radar saved as a favorite and could one-click to get it.

Android :: App - Animated GIFs Via Webpages

Apr 19, 2010

We are doing some prototyping for an Android app and we wanted to use Animated GIFs via webpages to get a sense of animation. Unfortunately, we have found that we can't do that on the Android's browser (or Opera for that matter). I've read some posting saying that this might get fixed but there were never any specific dates. Does anyone have some news on when we might be able to use Animated GIFs in webpages? If not, does anyone have any suggestions on good ways to develop quick animated visual prototypes of apps for Android? In particular, our design folks (who are handling the visual stuff) know HTML, Javascript, J-query but don't know Java and we would prefer to NOT have them learn another language, if possible as this is really just for rapid prototyping.

Android :: Can't Click On An Animated View / Fix It

Sep 16, 2009

I have a TextView on which I set an onClickListener.

I assign a Traslate Animation to this TextView, so that it moves from position A to position B in the screen.

The Animation works as expected.

My problem is due to the fact that it does not matter in which position the TextView is during its movement: in order to trigger the "click event" I need to touch the screen only in the starting position (A).

EXAMPLE: Imagine that the TextView is in the bottom left corner and it starts moving toward the top right one. Imagine that the TextView is now in the center ofthe screen. If I touch the TextView where my eyes "see" it (= in the center of the screen), nothing happens. Else if I touch the starting point at the bottom left of the screen (which is a blank place because the TextView has moved from there), the event is triggered.

Android :: How To Display An Animated GIF File

Android :: How Do A Display A Large Animated Gif Given A Url

May 1, 2009

Suppose I have the URL for large animated gif and I wanted to make a youtube like activity that displays the animation in a streaming way. How do I

stream in the image?
get it do display with actual animation?

I know ImageView is not the answer as it only shows the first frame.

A bonus would be having access to its buffering status so I can synchronize streaming sound as well -- this is part of a YTMND viewer application. While I could create a service that transcodes the public gif files into a nicer format, I'd like the app to function without additional dependencies.

Android :: MapView Animated Overlays?

Oct 1, 2010

The Android the MapView Overlay class mentions two draw methods. One regular, and one for animated overlays.

I have tried to find more information on how to animate overlays and use this second method, but it all keeps coming back to the same forum postings. Can anyone explain how you specify to the MapView that a certain Overlay should be animated? How do you specify the manner in which it animates?

If it's relevant, I'm currently trying to draw pins in the map that update in realtime with streaming GPS locations for objects. I get new data every two seconds and need to tween the locations by having the pins move in a simple straight line between coordinates.

Android :: Animated Window Transitions In 1.5

May 8, 2009

In android 1.5 release notes I saw Animated window transitions.

What is this all about ?

IN my application i want to show trasitions if i go from one activity to other.We can set the animation for both activities and call when one is closing and other is opening.

But problem is when , the current animation will stop when the onCreate of next activity is called ?

Means , when activity is pushed to stack , ongoing animation is stopped. Because of this we cannot show a smooth transition effect between activities.

Android :: Create Animated Email / SMS Notification?

Jul 24, 2009

Is there any way to create a notification when a new e-mail arrives in my Android inbox? I would like to show an animation when I receive a new e-mail or SMS - would this be possible without writing my own e-mail client? I'd also like to be able to customize the notifications based on who the sender is, the subject line, etc - basically, the same sort of criteria I can use to filter a message using any of the big existing clients.

Android :: Animated Swap Position Of Two Buttons

Nov 6, 2009

I am trying to swap the position of two buttons. My swapping code looks as below.
private void exchangeButtons(Button btn1, Button btn2) {
// Create the animation set AnimationSet exchangeAnimation = new AnimationSet(true);
TranslateAnimation translate = new TranslateAnimation(Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn2.getLeft(), Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn1.getLeft(),
Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn2.getRight(), Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn1.getRight() );
translate.setDuration(500); exchangeAnimation.addAnimation(translate);
// int fromX = btn1.getLeft();
// int fromY = btn1.getRight();
// int toX = btn2.getLeft();
// int toY = btn2.getRight();

Log.d("ArrangeMe", "view1 pos:" + btn1.getLeft() + ", " +btn1.getRight() + "view2 pos:" + btn2.getLeft() + ", " + btn2.getRight());
AnimationSet exchangeAnimation1 = new AnimationSet(true);
TranslateAnimation translate1 = new TranslateAnimation(Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn1.getLeft(), Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn2.getLeft(),
Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn1.getRight(), Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, btn2.getRight());
translate1.setDuration(500); exchangeAnimation1.addAnimation(translate1);
btn2.startAnimation(exchangeAnimation1); }

I call the code as below:
exchangeButtons(button1, button2);
My layout looks as below:
what happens when I execute the code is, instead of the buttons exchanging their positions, they just disappear for sometime[may be 500 ms] and reappear as they were originally.

Android :: Custom ViewGroup With Animated View Inside

Jun 17, 2009

I want to have a ViewGroup with another View in it. The user should be able to move the other View around the ViewGroup, and fling it away. However, the inner View shouldnt only move, it should also scale and so on (so we dont restrain ourselves to just movements). I don't really know the best way to implement it.

First I though about using a ViewGroup pretty much as it is (i.e. take advantage of the already-written methods). Then I could do the flinging with an Animation. However, when I move the View around with my finger, wouldnt I have to do a requestLayout, since the View changes size when I move it? Or could I just set a transform?

The other alternative would be to override the draw-method and do most of the work myself. For instance, when the user moves his/her finger, I could get a cache of the View and just paint it on the Canvas (with some transform). However, how would I do the flinging then, without an Animation? I could use a Scroller/VelocityTracker, but What would "drive" the repaints? Which is the best way to do this? Also, I won't have just one View, but a couple of them, so I'd like the solution to be effective.
