Android.Transitions Namespace

The classes in this package enable "scenes & transitions" functionality for view hiearchies.

Remarks

The classes in this package enable "scenes & transitions" functionality for view hiearchies.

A Scene is an encapsulation of the state of a view hierarchy, including the views in that hierarchy and the various values (layout-related and otherwise) that those views have. A scene can be defined by a layout hierarchy directly or by code which sets up the scene dynamically as it is entered.

A Transition is a mechanism to automatically animate changes that occur when a new scene is entered. Some transition capabilities are automatic. That is, entering a scene may cause animations to run which fade out views that go away, changeBounds and resize existing views that change, and fade in views that become visible. There are additional transitions that can animate other attributes, such as color changes, and which can optionally be specified to take place during particular scene changes. Finally, developers can define their own Transition subclasses which monitor particular property changes and which run custom animations when those properties change values.

TransitionManager is used to specify custom transitions for particular scene changes, and to cause scene changes with specific transitions to take place.

Classes

TypeReason
ArcMotionA PathMotion that generates a curved path along an arc on an imaginary circle containing the two points.
AutoTransitionUtility class for creating a default transition that automatically fades, moves, and resizes views during a scene change.
ChangeBoundsThis transition captures the layout bounds of target views before and after the scene change and animates those changes during the transition.
ChangeClipBoundsChangeClipBounds captures the View.ClipBounds before and after the scene change and animates those changes during the transition.
ChangeImageTransformThis Transition captures an ImageView's matrix before and after the scene change and animates it during the transition.
ChangeTransformThis Transition captures scale and rotation for Views before and after the scene change and animates those changes during the transition.
CircularPropagationA propagation that varies with the distance to the epicenter of the Transition or center of the scene if no epicenter exists.
ExplodeThis transition tracks changes to the visibility of target views in the start and end scenes and moves views in or out from the edges of the scene.
FadeThis transition tracks changes to the visibility of target views in the start and end scenes and fades views in or out when they become visible or non-visible.
FadingModeEnumerates values returned by several types and taken as a parameter of the Android.Transitions.Fade..ctor member.
MatchTargetEnumerates values returned by several types.
PathMotionThis base class can be extended to provide motion along a Path to Transitions.
PatternPathMotionA PathMotion that takes a Path pattern and applies it to the separation between two points.
SceneA scene represents the collection of values that various properties in the View hierarchy will have when the scene is applied.
SidePropagationA TransitionPropagation that propagates based on the distance to the side and, orthogonally, the distance to epicenter.
SlideThis transition tracks changes to the visibility of target views in the start and end scenes and moves views in or out from one of the edges of the scene.
TransitionA Transition holds information about animations that will be run on its targets during a scene change.
Transition+EpicenterCallback
Transition+ITransitionListener
Transition+TransitionCancelEventArgs
Transition+TransitionEndEventArgs
Transition+TransitionPauseEventArgs
Transition+TransitionResumeEventArgs
Transition+TransitionStartEventArgs
TransitionInflaterThis class inflates scenes and transitions from resource files.
TransitionManagerThis class manages the set of transitions that fire when there is a change of Scene.
TransitionOrderingEnumerates values returned by several types and taken as a parameter of the TransitionSet.SetOrdering member.
TransitionPropagationExtend TransitionPropagation to customize start delays for Animators created in Transition.CreateAnimator(ViewGroup,TransitionValues,TransitionValues).
TransitionSetA TransitionSet is a parent of child transitions (including other TransitionSets).
TransitionValuesData structure which holds cached values for the transition.
VisibilityThis transition tracks changes to the visibility of target views in the start and end scenes.
VisibilityModeEnumerates values returned by the Visibility.Mode, VisibilityMode.In, and VisibilityMode.Out members.
VisibilityPropagationBase class for TransitionPropagations that care about View Visibility and the center position of the View.
