Using Fling Motion Gesture in Android

 

The layout .

I’m using the ViewFlipper to demonstrate this simple fling application.

So, what is Fling… It’s also known as the swiping action on your mobile device screen.

In this demo, I prepared an Activity with ViewFlipper layout that has 3 screens. Green, Blue and Yellow.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="fill_parent"
    >
    <TableLayout android:id="@+id/LinearLayout01" 
        android:layout_width="fill_parent" 
        android:layout_height="wrap_content">
        <TableRow>
            <TextView android:id="@+id/btnback"
                android:text="Fling left - Back  "
                android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
            <TextView android:id="@+id/btnforward"
                android:text="  Fling right - Forward"
                android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
        </TableRow>
    </TableLayout>
    <ViewFlipper
        android:id="@+id/pages"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent" >
        <TextView
            android:text="1.red"
            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="fill_parent"
            android:background="#AAff0000" />
        <TextView
            android:text="2.green"
            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="fill_parent" 
            android:background="#AA00ff00" />
        <TextView
            android:text="3.blue"
            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
            android:layout_height="fill_parent"
            android:background="#AA0000ff"  />
    
    </ViewFlipper>
</LinearLayout>


The Code…



package com.kerul.FlipperFling;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.GestureDetector;
import android.view.MotionEvent;
import android.view.GestureDetector.OnGestureListener;
import android.widget.Toast;
import android.widget.ViewFlipper;
public class FlipperFling extends Activity implements OnGestureListener {
	protected GestureDetector gestureScanner;
	protected ViewFlipper vf;
	private static final int SWIPE_MIN_DISTANCE = 120;
    private static final int SWIPE_MAX_OFF_PATH = 250;
    private static final int SWIPE_THRESHOLD_VELOCITY = 200;
	@Override
	public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState){
		super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
		gestureScanner = new GestureDetector(this);
		setContentView(R.layout.main);
        vf = (ViewFlipper) findViewById(R.id.pages);
	}
	@Override
	public boolean onTouchEvent(MotionEvent me){
		return gestureScanner.onTouchEvent(me);
	}
	public boolean onDown(MotionEvent e){
		return true;
	}
	public boolean onFling(MotionEvent e1,MotionEvent e2,float velocityX,float velocityY){
		try {
            if(e1.getX() > e2.getX() && Math.abs(e1.getX() - e2.getX()) > SWIPE_MIN_DISTANCE && Math.abs(velocityX) > SWIPE_THRESHOLD_VELOCITY) {
                Toast.makeText(this.getApplicationContext(), "Left", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                vf.showPrevious();
            }else if (e1.getX() < e2.getX() && e2.getX() - e1.getX() > SWIPE_MIN_DISTANCE && Math.abs(velocityX) > SWIPE_THRESHOLD_VELOCITY) {
                Toast.makeText(this.getApplicationContext(), "Right", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                vf.showNext();
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            // nothing
        }
        return true;
		
	}
	public void onLongPress(MotionEvent e){}
	
	public boolean onScroll(MotionEvent e1,MotionEvent e2,float distanceX,float distanceY){
		return true;
	}
	public void onShowPress(MotionEvent e){}
	public boolean onSingleTapUp(MotionEvent e){ return true;}
}


Focus on onFling method, the fling gesture is detected in the method. (I’ll explain later…).



The onFling method (which is the method detecting the Fling motion will catch a horizontal swipe, either from left to right, or from right to left). Assuming that MotionEvent.e1 is the starting point of the motion, and MotionEvent.e2 is the end. FYI the screen coordinate (0,0) starts from the top-left corner.  So left to right motion detected when the e1.getX is greater than e2.getX, and vice-versa.

Login JSON Android using Login Activity

I’ve been trying to release this tutorial quite a while. At last after a long hard effort. Since HttpClient is not supported any more in Android SDK 23, I have to resort to org.json.JSONObject and java.net.HttpURLConnection library to do online database with JSON. The objective of this tutorial is to log-in from a mobile client with the username and password stored in an online database facility. STEP 1: Create a new Android project, this time choose the LoginActivity .

Bootstrap Template for PHP database system - MyCompanyHR

HTML without framework is dull. Doing hard-coded CSS and JS are quite difficult with no promising result on cross platform compatibility. So I decided to explore BootStrap as they said it is the most popular web framework. What is BootStrap? - Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework for developing responsive, mobile-first web sites. (  http://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap/   ) Available here -  http://getbootstrap.com/ Why you need Flat-UI? Seems like a beautiful theme to make my site look professional.

Pick a file using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT

This tutorial is tested on Honeycomb 3.0 environment. In order to be used it in the lower level of Android API, I believe you could just change the target in the Android project. Screenshots Pick an image file using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT The intention of this project is to choose an image file available in the device storage, and simply display it in an ImageView. The benefit of using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT is you don’t have to develop open dialog box which is not available in the Android library. ACTION_GET_CONTENT with MIME type */* and category CATEGORY_OPENABLE -- Display all pickers for data that can be opened with ContentResolver.openInputStream() , allowing the user to pick one of them and then some data inside of it and returning the resulting URI to the caller. This can be used, for example, image chooser (as shown in this article).
