public class AnimatorInflater
extends Object

   ↳ android.animation.AnimatorInflater

This class is used to instantiate animator XML files into Animator objects.

For performance reasons, inflation relies heavily on pre-processing of XML files that is done at build time. Therefore, it is not currently possible to use this inflater with an XmlPullParser over a plain XML file at runtime; it only works with an XmlPullParser returned from a compiled resource (R. something file.)
