StateListDrawable

public class StateListDrawable
extends DrawableContainer

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.graphics.drawable.Drawable
     ↳ android.graphics.drawable.DrawableContainer
       ↳ android.graphics.drawable.StateListDrawable
Known Direct Subclasses


Lets you assign a number of graphic images to a single Drawable and swap out the visible item by a string ID value.

It can be defined in an XML file with the <selector> element. Each state Drawable is defined in a nested <item> element. For more information, see the guide to Drawable Resources.

Summary

Public constructors

StateListDrawable

Added in API level 1
StateListDrawable ()

Public methods

addState

Added in API level 1
void addState (int[] stateSet, 
                Drawable drawable)

Add a new image/string ID to the set of images.

Parameters
stateSet int: - An array of resource Ids to associate with the image. Switch to this image by calling setState().
drawable Drawable: -The image to show.

applyTheme

Added in API level 21
void applyTheme (Resources.Theme theme)

Applies the specified theme to this Drawable and its children.

Parameters
theme Resources.Theme: the theme to apply

inflate

Added in API level 21
void inflate (Resources r, 
                XmlPullParser parser, 
                AttributeSet attrs, 
                Resources.Theme theme)

Inflate this Drawable from an XML resource optionally styled by a theme. This can't be called more than once for each Drawable. Note that framework may have called this once to create the Drawable instance from XML resource.

Parameters
r Resources: Resources used to resolve attribute values
parser XmlPullParser: XML parser from which to inflate this Drawable
attrs AttributeSet: Base set of attribute values
theme Resources.Theme: Theme to apply, may be null
Throws
XmlPullParserException
IOException

isStateful

Added in API level 1
boolean isStateful ()

Indicates whether this drawable will change its appearance based on state. Clients can use this to determine whether it is necessary to calculate their state and call setState.

Returns
boolean True if this drawable changes its appearance based on state, false otherwise.

mutate

Added in API level 3
Drawable mutate ()

Make this drawable mutable. This operation cannot be reversed. A mutable drawable is guaranteed to not share its state with any other drawable. This is especially useful when you need to modify properties of drawables loaded from resources. By default, all drawables instances loaded from the same resource share a common state; if you modify the state of one instance, all the other instances will receive the same modification. Calling this method on a mutable Drawable will have no effect.

Returns
Drawable This drawable.

Protected methods

onStateChange

Added in API level 1
boolean onStateChange (int[] stateSet)

Override this in your subclass to change appearance if you recognize the specified state.

Parameters
stateSet int
Returns
boolean Returns true if the state change has caused the appearance of the Drawable to change (that is, it needs to be drawn), else false if it looks the same and there is no need to redraw it since its last state.

setConstantState

Added in API level 1
void setConstantState (DrawableContainer.DrawableContainerState state)

Parameters
state DrawableContainer.DrawableContainerState
