Android MarqueeView


MarqueeView is a custom slider view that can slide vertically and horizontally.

Installing MarqueeView

To install MarqueeView, add this in your dependencies DSL:

implementation 'com.sunfusheng:marqueeview:<latest-version>'

MarqueeView Attributes

Here are some of the attributes of MarqueeView:

Attribute attribute Description
mvAnimDuration One line of text animation execution time
mvInterval Two lines of text turning time interval
mvTextSize font size
mvTextColor Text color
mvGravity Text position: left, center, right
mvSingleLine Single line setting
mvDirection Animation scrolling direction: bottom_to_top, top_to_bottom, right_to_left, left_to_right

Using in XML Layout

Here's how you can use MarqueeView in XML Layout:

<com.sunfusheng.marqueeview.MarqueeView
    android:id="@+id/marqueeView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="30dp"
    app:mvAnimDuration="1000"
    app:mvDirection="bottom_to_top"
    app:mvInterval="3000"
    app:mvTextColor="@color/white"
    app:mvTextSize="14sp"
    app:mvSingleLine="true"/>

MarqueeView Example Fragments and RecyclerView

Here's the app we will build.

Android MarqueeView Example

Our app will have three tabs. The first Tab will show us Sayings, the second quotes and the third spaceships.

MarqueeView is easy to work with and can be included not only in top level UI like activity or fragment layout but also in adapterviews like RecyclerView or ListView.

Here's the video tutorial:

What we look at

We will look at an example that:

  • Has 3 fragments that can be swiped and are accessible via tabs via TabLayout.
  • The first two tabs will each show 5 MarqueeViews bound to text in strings.xml.
  • The third tab or fragment will show a RecyclerView with either text or marqueeview.
  • This marqueeview in the recyclerview will be bound to an arraylist.

Questions this Example helps answer?

  • How do I use or install MarqueeView?
  • How do I use MarqueeView in fragments?
  • How do I use MarqueeView in recyclerview?
  • Recyclerview with different view types.
  • TabLayout with recyclerview.

Gradle Scripts

(a) Build.gradle
dependencies {
    implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0-alpha3'

}

Layouts

Lets start by exploring the layouts in this project.

We have seven layouts:

1. activity_about.xml

Here we will add a LinearLayout as our root xml element.

Inside we will have a WebView. This will render our about page.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical">

    <WebView
        android:id="@+id/webView"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"/>

</LinearLayout>
2. activity_main.xml

This is our main activity's layout.

Here we have a tabLayout which will render our tabs. We will also have a ViewPager which allow us to swipe our fragments.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"

        android:id="@+id/tabLayout"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="40dp"
        android:background="@color/orange"
        app:tabIndicatorColor="@color/white"
        app:tabSelectedTextColor="@color/white"
        app:tabTextColor="@color/half_transparent_white"/>

        android:id="@+id/viewPager"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
