ScrollingPagerIndicator

Pager indicator inspired by Instagram. Lightweight and easy to set up.

Supports ViewPager, RecyclerView and attaching to custom pagers.

preview

Getting started

Add dependency to Gradle script:

implementation "ru.tinkoff.scrollingpagerindicator:scrollingpagerindicator:x.x.x"

Attach to ViewPager

  1. Ensure that you have ViewPager in dependencies:
implementation "com.android.support:support-core-ui:x.x.x"

or

implementation "com.android.support:appcompat-v7:x.x.x"
  1. Add view to layout:
<android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
    android:id="@+id/pager"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

<ru.tinkoff.scrollingpagerindicator.ScrollingPagerIndicator
    android:id="@+id/indicator"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

There is no possibility to set fixed indicator width (because it's width is based on spi_visibleDotCount).

  1. Attach indicator to ViewPager:
ViewPager pager = findViewById(R.id.pager);
pager.setAdapter(new DemoPagerAdapter());
ScaledDotsIndicator indicator = findViewById(R.id.indicator);
indicator.attachToPager(pager);

Attach to RecyclerView

  1. Ensure that you have RecyclerView in dependencies:
implementation "com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:x.x.x"
  1. Add view to layout:
<android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView
    android:id="@+id/recycler"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

<ru.tinkoff.scrollingpagerindicator.ScrollingPagerIndicator
    android:id="@+id/indicator"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
  1. Attach indicator to RecyclerView:
RecyclerView recyclerView = findViewById(R.id.recycler);
LayoutManager layoutManager = new LinearLayoutManager(this, LinearLayoutManager.HORIZONTAL, false);
recyclerView.setLayoutManager(layoutManager);
DemoRecyclerViewAdapter recyclerAdapter = new DemoRecyclerViewAdapter();
recyclerView.setAdapter(recyclerAdapter);

ScrollingPagerIndicator recyclerIndicator = findViewById(R.id.indicator);
recyclerIndicator.attachToRecyclerView(recyclerView);
  1. Determine which page is current in RecyclerView:

Use attachToRecyclerView(RecyclerView) if current page of the recycler is centered. Like this:

+------------------------------+
|---+  +----------------+  +---|
|   |  |     current    |  |   |
|   |  |      page      |  |   |
|---+  +----------------+  +---|
+------------------------------+

Use attachToRecyclerView(RecyclerView recyclerView, int currentPageLeftCornerX) if current page of the recycler isn't centered. Like this:

+-|----------------------------+
| +--------+  +--------+  +----+
| | current|  |        |  |    |
| |  page  |  |        |  |    |
| +--------+  +--------+  +----|
+-|----------------------------+
  |
  | currentPageLeftCornerX

In both cases all views in RecyclerView must have the same width. Only LinearLayoutManager with HORIZONTAL orientation is supported.

Attach to any custom pager

If you want to attach indicator to some custom pager, you have to implement ScrollingPagerIndicator.PagerAttacher interface. You can take look at ru.tinkoff.scrollingpagerindicator.ViewPagerAttacher as implementation example. And then you can attach your pager like this:

indicator.attachToPager(pager, new ViewPagerAttacher());

Customization

Attribute Explanation Default Value
spi_dotSize The diameter of a dot. 6dp
spi_dotSelectedSize The diameter of a currently selected dot. 10dp
spi_dotColor The color of a dot. @android:color/darker_gray
spi_dotSelectedColor The color of the currently selected dot. @android:color/darker_gray
spi_dotSpacing The distance from center to center of each dot. 8dp
spi_visibleDotCount The maximum number of dots which will be visible at the same time. If pager has more pages than visible_dot_count, indicator will scroll to show extra dots. Must be odd number. 5
spi_visibleDotThreshold The minimum number of dots which should be visible. If pager has less pages than visibleDotThreshold, no dots will be shown. 2
spi_looped The mode for looped pagers support. You should make indicator looped if your custom pager is looped too. If pager has less items than spi_visibleDotCount, indicator will work as usual; otherwise it will always be in infinite state. false

TODO

  1. Some extreme customizations may work incorrect.
  2. There is no possibility to set fixed indicator width (because it's width is based on spi_visibleDotCount).
