# ViewExploder

View Exploder is a library that lets you explode apart arbitrary view hierarchies in 3D to understand how views interact in the z axis, or just for a cool visualization.

The library is also useful to see how views are drawn to the screen and can be used to easily identify drawing problems such as overdraw.

Usage

To use the View Exploder simply add it to your view heirarchy as a root view to your layout.

<com.alexgwyn.exploderview.ExploderView
      android:id="@+id/exploderView"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent">
      
        <!-- Your Layout -->
        
</com.alexgwyn.exploderview.ExploderView>

In your onCreate find a reference and then set either an ElevationLayerBuilder or HeirarchyLayerBuilder to the view. By default a HeirarchyLayerBuilder is used. A HeirarchyLayerBuilder builds the layer based on the nesting of the views in your layout, while the ElevationLayerBuilder builds layers based on a views elevation.

mExploderView = (ExploderView) findViewById(R.id.exploderView);
mExploderView.setLayerBuilder(new ElevationLayerBuilder());

Next call setInteractive(true) if you want to be able to interact with the views in the exploded layout

mExploderView.setInteractive(false);

Finally call explode() to see your views in 3D!

mExploderView.explode(true);
