Public Constructors

public TranslateAnimation (Context context, AttributeSet attrs)

Added in API level 1

Constructor used when a TranslateAnimation is loaded from a resource.

Parameters
context Context: Application context to use
attrs AttributeSet: Attribute set from which to read values

public TranslateAnimation (float fromXDelta, float toXDelta, float fromYDelta, float toYDelta)

Added in API level 1

Constructor to use when building a TranslateAnimation from code

Parameters
fromXDelta float: Change in X coordinate to apply at the start of the animation
toXDelta float: Change in X coordinate to apply at the end of the animation
fromYDelta float: Change in Y coordinate to apply at the start of the animation
toYDelta float: Change in Y coordinate to apply at the end of the animation

public TranslateAnimation (int fromXType, float fromXValue, int toXType, float toXValue, int fromYType, float fromYValue, int toYType, float toYValue)

Added in API level 1

Constructor to use when building a TranslateAnimation from code

Parameters
fromXType int: Specifies how fromXValue should be interpreted. One of Animation.ABSOLUTE, Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, or Animation.RELATIVE_TO_PARENT.
fromXValue float: Change in X coordinate to apply at the start of the animation. This value can either be an absolute number if fromXType is ABSOLUTE, or a percentage (where 1.0 is 100%) otherwise.
toXType int: Specifies how toXValue should be interpreted. One of Animation.ABSOLUTE, Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, or Animation.RELATIVE_TO_PARENT.
toXValue float: Change in X coordinate to apply at the end of the animation. This value can either be an absolute number if toXType is ABSOLUTE, or a percentage (where 1.0 is 100%) otherwise.
fromYType int: Specifies how fromYValue should be interpreted. One of Animation.ABSOLUTE, Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, or Animation.RELATIVE_TO_PARENT.
fromYValue float: Change in Y coordinate to apply at the start of the animation. This value can either be an absolute number if fromYType is ABSOLUTE, or a percentage (where 1.0 is 100%) otherwise.
toYType int: Specifies how toYValue should be interpreted. One of Animation.ABSOLUTE, Animation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, or Animation.RELATIVE_TO_PARENT.
toYValue float: Change in Y coordinate to apply at the end of the animation. This value can either be an absolute number if toYType is ABSOLUTE, or a percentage (where 1.0 is 100%) otherwise.

Public Methods

public void initialize (int width, int height, int parentWidth, int parentHeight)

Added in API level 1

Initialize this animation with the dimensions of the object being animated as well as the objects parents. (This is to support animation sizes being specified relative to these dimensions.)

Objects that interpret Animations should call this method when the sizes of the object being animated and its parent are known, and before calling getTransformation(long, Transformation).

Parameters
width int: Width of the object being animated
height int: Height of the object being animated
parentWidth int: Width of the animated object's parent
parentHeight int: Height of the animated object's parent

Protected Methods

protected void applyTransformation (float interpolatedTime, Transformation t)

Added in API level 1

Helper for getTransformation. Subclasses should implement this to apply their transforms given an interpolation value. Implementations of this method should always replace the specified Transformation or document they are doing otherwise.

Parameters
interpolatedTime float: The value of the normalized time (0.0 to 1.0) after it has been run through the interpolation function.
t Transformation: The Transformation object to fill in with the current transforms.
