Customizing ListView Rows Problem Your application needs to use a more customized look for each row in a ListView. Solution (API Level 1) Create a custom XML layout and pass it to one of the common adapters, or extend your own. You can then apply custom state drawables for overriding the background and selected states of each row. How It Works Starting Simple If your needs are simple, create a layout that can connect to an existing ListAdapter for population; we’ll use ArrayAdapter as an example.

OfFloat() did for us implicitly. We also still need our AnimatorUpdateListener to determine when to switch from heads to tails, but that cannot be applied to a set object. Instead, we have to find the rotation animation inside the set using getChildAnimations() in order to attach the listener in the appropriate place. Running this new example will give us a slightly more realistic coin-flip animation. 1-5. Animating Layout Changes Problem Your application dynamically adds or removes views from a layout, and you would like those changes to be animated.

Building the custom control in this fashion ensures that we can still define this view in XML layouts. Without implementing the attributed constructors, this would not be possible. buttonStyle to the constructor. This defines the style value that should be pulled from the current theme and applied to the view. This sets up the background to match other button instances, but it also makes the view clickable and focusable, as those flags are also part of the system’s style. 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.
