Sample text

WRAP_CONTENT)); } } 31 32 CHAPTER 1: Layouts and Views In this example, we have modified the APPEARING, DISAPPEARING, and CHANGE_DISAPPEARING transition animations for our Button layout. The first two transitions affect the item being added or removed. When the Add Item button is clicked, the new item horizontally rotates into view. When any of the Remove buttons are clicked, that item will vertically rotate out of view. Both of these transitions are created by making a new ObjectAnimator for the custom rotation property, setting its duration to the default duration for that transition type, and attaching it to our LayoutTransition instance along with a key for the specific transition type.

In order to apply this layout to the ListView, we will need to extend one of the ListAdapters in the SDK. Which one you extend depends on the data source you are presenting in the list. If the data is still just a simple array of strings, an extension of ArrayAdapter is sufficient. If the data is more complex, a full extension of the abstract BaseAdapter may be necessary. The only required method to extend is getView(), which governs how each row in the list is presented. In our case, the data is a simple array of strings, so we will create a simple extension of ArrayAdapter (see Listing 1-41).

Whenever possible, you should load your custom widget’s look and feel from the current theme to allow easy customization and consistency with the rest of your application. The constructor also creates a TextView and ImageView, and it places them inside the layout. Each child constructor is passed the same set of attributes so that any XML attributes that were set specific to one or the other (such as text or image state) are properly read. The remaining code sets the default display mode (either text or image) based on the data that was passed in as attributes.
