DrawablePresentation is a collection of several small Android projects demonstrating some features of Android's
Drawables. It has been developed as a demonstrative application of the "Drawable overview" presentation (the original French name was "Tour d'horizon des Drawables") given on February 12, 2010 at the Android Developer Labs in Paris.
What's in DrawablePresentation?
DrawableListing This project aims to show how useful Android's
Drawables are. It demonstrates how to create advanced
Drawables mainly via XML. Some examples also include samples creating
Drawable in the Java code.
Drawables can be used to flatten the view hierachy of a layout. This sample is based on an application called "MetroMap Paris" and rewrites its splash screen using as few
Views as possible.
RemoteDrawable This project explains how to create your own Drawable (class that inherits from the Android's
Drawable class). The
RemoteDrawable can be created via code only and displays a temporary
Drawable (placeholder) while another one is being downloaded in the background. When the final
Drawable is available,
RemoteDrawable automatically notifies the
View to redraw itself.
DrawablePresentation piece of software have been compiled and tested with,
Eclipse IDE 3.5 Android SDK release 2.1 Android Development Tools (ADT) 0.9.5
