help: cyanogen's-launcher-like listview

Postby cotko » Wed May 26, 2010 1:30 am


I would like to make a ListView, which is kind of wrapped at top and bottom, like this launcher on cyanogen's rom
(see video from 00:54 to 01:00):

Now, I've been searching the web for all possible solutions, tutorials etc.. but I'm still stuck at the beginning. The problem is that don't even know where to start;
- should I use java's graphics library
- or openGL
- or some custom animations
- or something completely else??

Can pleaaaaase someone give me some hints/tips/directions or even some link to the right tutorial :oops: :oops:

I think this would be much easier using a built-in control. I know everything, sans wrapping, can be accomplished in a plain ole listview with a custom adapter. I've implemented a fancy list view using that method. I dont know how to wrap, but I imagine it is possible with one of the views (maybe a scrollview or something).

In short, try built-in controls before you attempt to go the custom route.
