Public Methods

public void advance ()

Added in API level 11

Called by an AppWidgetHost in order to advance the current view when it is being used within an app widget.

public boolean onGenericMotionEvent (MotionEvent event)

Added in API level 12

Implement this method to handle generic motion events.

Generic motion events describe joystick movements, mouse hovers, track pad touches, scroll wheel movements and other input events. The source of the motion event specifies the class of input that was received. Implementations of this method must examine the bits in the source before processing the event. The following code example shows how this is done.

Generic motion events with source class SOURCE_CLASS_POINTER are delivered to the view under the pointer. All other generic motion events are delivered to the focused view.

 public boolean onGenericMotionEvent(MotionEvent event) {
     if (event.isFromSource(InputDevice.SOURCE_CLASS_JOYSTICK)) {
         if (event.getAction() == MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE) {
             // process the joystick movement...
             return true;
         }
     }
     if (event.isFromSource(InputDevice.SOURCE_CLASS_POINTER)) {
         switch (event.getAction()) {
             case MotionEvent.ACTION_HOVER_MOVE:
                 // process the mouse hover movement...
                 return true;
             case MotionEvent.ACTION_SCROLL:
                 // process the scroll wheel movement...
                 return true;
         }
     }
     return super.onGenericMotionEvent(event);
 }

Parameters
event The generic motion event being processed.
Returns
  • True if the event was handled, false otherwise.

public void onInitializeAccessibilityEvent (AccessibilityEvent event)

Added in API level 14

Initializes an AccessibilityEvent with information about this View which is the event source. In other words, the source of an accessibility event is the view whose state change triggered firing the event.

Example: Setting the password property of an event in addition to properties set by the super implementation:

 public void onInitializeAccessibilityEvent(AccessibilityEvent event) {
     super.onInitializeAccessibilityEvent(event);
     event.setPassword(true);
 }

If an View.AccessibilityDelegate has been specified via calling setAccessibilityDelegate(AccessibilityDelegate) its onInitializeAccessibilityEvent(View, AccessibilityEvent) is responsible for handling this call.

Note: Always call the super implementation before adding information to the event, in case the default implementation has basic information to add.

Parameters
event The event to initialize.

public void onInitializeAccessibilityNodeInfo (AccessibilityNodeInfo info)

Added in API level 14

Initializes an AccessibilityNodeInfo with information about this view. The base implementation sets:

Subclasses should override this method, call the super implementation, and set additional attributes.

If an View.AccessibilityDelegate has been specified via calling setAccessibilityDelegate(AccessibilityDelegate) its onInitializeAccessibilityNodeInfo(View, AccessibilityNodeInfo) is responsible for handling this call.

Parameters
info The instance to initialize.

public boolean onInterceptTouchEvent (MotionEvent ev)

Added in API level 11

Implement this method to intercept all touch screen motion events. This allows you to watch events as they are dispatched to your children, and take ownership of the current gesture at any point.

Using this function takes some care, as it has a fairly complicated interaction with View.onTouchEvent(MotionEvent), and using it requires implementing that method as well as this one in the correct way. Events will be received in the following order:

  1. You will receive the down event here.
  2. The down event will be handled either by a child of this view group, or given to your own onTouchEvent() method to handle; this means you should implement onTouchEvent() to return true, so you will continue to see the rest of the gesture (instead of looking for a parent view to handle it). Also, by returning true from onTouchEvent(), you will not receive any following events in onInterceptTouchEvent() and all touch processing must happen in onTouchEvent() like normal.
  3. For as long as you return false from this function, each following event (up to and including the final up) will be delivered first here and then to the target's onTouchEvent().
  4. If you return true from here, you will not receive any following events: the target view will receive the same event but with the action ACTION_CANCEL, and all further events will be delivered to your onTouchEvent() method and no longer appear here.

Parameters
ev The motion event being dispatched down the hierarchy.
Returns
  • Return true to steal motion events from the children and have them dispatched to this ViewGroup through onTouchEvent(). The current target will receive an ACTION_CANCEL event, and no further messages will be delivered here.

public boolean onTouchEvent (MotionEvent ev)

Added in API level 11

Implement this method to handle touch screen motion events.

If this method is used to detect click actions, it is recommended that the actions be performed by implementing and calling performClick(). This will ensure consistent system behavior, including:

  • obeying click sound preferences
  • dispatching OnClickListener calls
  • handling ACTION_CLICK when accessibility features are enabled

Parameters
ev The motion event.
Returns
  • True if the event was handled, false otherwise.

public boolean performAccessibilityAction (int action, Bundle arguments)

Added in API level 16

Performs the specified accessibility action on the view. For possible accessibility actions look at AccessibilityNodeInfo.

If an View.AccessibilityDelegate has been specified via calling setAccessibilityDelegate(AccessibilityDelegate) its performAccessibilityAction(View, int, Bundle) is responsible for handling this call.

Parameters
action The action to perform.
arguments Optional action arguments.
Returns
  • Whether the action was performed.

public void showNext ()

Added in API level 11

Manually shows the next child.

public void showPrevious ()

Added in API level 11

Manually shows the previous child.

Protected Methods

protected void dispatchDraw (Canvas canvas)

Added in API level 11

Called by draw to draw the child views. This may be overridden by derived classes to gain control just before its children are drawn (but after its own view has been drawn).

Parameters
canvas the canvas on which to draw the view

protected void onLayout (boolean changed, int left, int top, int right, int bottom)

Added in API level 11

Called from layout when this view should assign a size and position to each of its children. Derived classes with children should override this method and call layout on each of their children.

Parameters
changed This is a new size or position for this view
left Left position, relative to parent
top Top position, relative to parent
right Right position, relative to parent
bottom Bottom position, relative to parent

protected void onMeasure (int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec)

Added in API level 11

Measure the view and its content to determine the measured width and the measured height. This method is invoked by measure(int, int) and should be overriden by subclasses to provide accurate and efficient measurement of their contents.

CONTRACT: When overriding this method, you must call setMeasuredDimension(int, int) to store the measured width and height of this view. Failure to do so will trigger an IllegalStateException, thrown by measure(int, int). Calling the superclass' onMeasure(int, int) is a valid use.

The base class implementation of measure defaults to the background size, unless a larger size is allowed by the MeasureSpec. Subclasses should override onMeasure(int, int) to provide better measurements of their content.

If this method is overridden, it is the subclass's responsibility to make sure the measured height and width are at least the view's minimum height and width (getSuggestedMinimumHeight() and getSuggestedMinimumWidth()).

Parameters
widthMeasureSpec horizontal space requirements as imposed by the parent. The requirements are encoded with View.MeasureSpec.
heightMeasureSpec vertical space requirements as imposed by the parent. The requirements are encoded with View.MeasureSpec.
