Different types of Animation – Push Up in, Push Up Out, Push Left in, Push Left Out, HyperSpace In, HyperSpace Out in a ViewFlipper in Android.

By | April 22, 2013

Hello all….
This is going to be a big post..

Check out my previous post for a rotate3D animation between a ListView and an Image.

How to create a rotate 3D Animation between a ListView and an ImageView in Android?

Today I will show you different types of Animations using ViewFlipper in a textView.

Here we have 4 TextViews which we will animate one after another using different animations.

I will introduce 4 sample animations which you can modify in any way according to your need.

Animations will be shown in a listview which onclick will animate the ViewFlipper.

At first you have to create a folder named “anim” inside the “res” folder and copy these XML files inside it.

hyperspace_in.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<alpha xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:duration="300"
    android:fromAlpha="0.0"
    android:startOffset="1200"
    android:toAlpha="1.0" />

hyperspace_out.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shareInterpolator="false" >

    <scale
        android:duration="700"
        android:fillAfter="false"
        android:fillEnabled="true"
        android:fromXScale="1.0"
        android:fromYScale="1.0"
        android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_decelerate_interpolator"
        android:pivotX="50%"
        android:pivotY="50%"
        android:toXScale="1.4"
        android:toYScale="0.6" />

    <set android:interpolator="@android:anim/accelerate_interpolator" >
        <scale
            android:duration="400"
            android:fillAfter="true"
            android:fillBefore="false"
            android:fillEnabled="true"
            android:fromXScale="1.4"
            android:fromYScale="0.6"
            android:pivotX="50%"
            android:pivotY="50%"
            android:startOffset="700"
            android:toXScale="0.0"
            android:toYScale="0.0" />

        <rotate
            android:duration="400"
            android:fillAfter="true"
            android:fillBefore="false"
            android:fillEnabled="true"
            android:fromDegrees="0"
            android:pivotX="50%"
            android:pivotY="50%"
            android:startOffset="700"
            android:toDegrees="-45"
            android:toYScale="0.0" />
    </set>

</set>

push_left_in.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <translate
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromXDelta="100%p"
        android:toXDelta="0" />

    <alpha
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromAlpha="0.0"
        android:toAlpha="1.0" />

</set>

push_left_out.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <translate
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromXDelta="0"
        android:toXDelta="-100%p" />

    <alpha
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromAlpha="1.0"
        android:toAlpha="0.0" />

</set>

push_up_in.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <translate
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromYDelta="100%p"
        android:toYDelta="0" />

    <alpha
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromAlpha="0.0"
        android:toAlpha="1.0" />

</set>

push_up_out.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <translate
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromYDelta="0"
        android:toYDelta="-100%p" />

    <alpha
        android:duration="300"
        android:fromAlpha="1.0"
        android:toAlpha="0.0" />

</set>

All animation XML files are over. Now copy this XML to your main layout file.

animation_2.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:padding="10dip" >

    <ViewFlipper
        android:id="@+id/flipper"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginBottom="20dip"
        android:flipInterval="2000" >

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:gravity="center_horizontal"
            android:text="Hello"
            android:textSize="26sp" />

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:gravity="center_horizontal"
            android:text="From"
            android:textSize="26sp" />

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:gravity="center_horizontal"
            android:text="CoderzHeaven"
            android:textSize="26sp" />

        <TextView
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:gravity="center_horizontal"
            android:text="Heaven of all working Codes"
            android:textSize="26sp" />
    </ViewFlipper>

    <TextView
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginBottom="5dip"
        android:text="Select the Animation to Apply" />

    <Spinner
        android:id="@+id/spinner"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

</LinearLayout>

OK Done. Now our Layout files and animation files are over.

Now the MainActivity that uses these animation XML files and layouts.
MainActivity.java

package com.example.pushupanimation;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.animation.AnimationUtils;
import android.widget.AdapterView;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.Spinner;
import android.widget.ViewFlipper;

public class MainActivity extends Activity implements
		AdapterView.OnItemSelectedListener {

	@Override
	public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
		setContentView(R.layout.animation_2);

		mFlipper = ((ViewFlipper) this.findViewById(R.id.flipper));
		mFlipper.startFlipping();

		Spinner s = (Spinner) findViewById(R.id.spinner);
		ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
				android.R.layout.simple_spinner_item, mStrings);
		adapter.setDropDownViewResource(android.R.layout.simple_spinner_dropdown_item);
		s.setAdapter(adapter);
		s.setOnItemSelectedListener(this);
	}

	public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> parent, View v, int position,
			long id) {
		switch (position) {

		case 0:
			mFlipper.setInAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					R.anim.push_up_in));
			mFlipper.setOutAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					R.anim.push_up_out));
			break;
		case 1:
			mFlipper.setInAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					R.anim.push_left_in));
			mFlipper.setOutAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					R.anim.push_left_out));
			break;
		case 2:
			mFlipper.setInAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					android.R.anim.fade_in));
			mFlipper.setOutAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					android.R.anim.fade_out));
			break;
		default:
			mFlipper.setInAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					R.anim.hyperspace_in));
			mFlipper.setOutAnimation(AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(this,
					R.anim.hyperspace_out));
			break;
		}
	}

	public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView<?> parent) {
	}

	private String[] mStrings = { "Push up", "Push left", "Cross fade",
			"Hyperspace" };

	private ViewFlipper mFlipper;

}
