DNDGridView

Android Arsenal

Drag & Drop GridView on Android.

Poject Components

DNDGridView provide below components.

  • DNDGridView, which is a customized GridView.
  • DNDAdapter, most of the drag & drop part is done in this file.
  • DNDViewHolder, provide ViewHolder which can save current view's position.

Project Structure

After checkout this repo, you will get a sample project and the DNDGridView module is located in dndgridview folder.

Usage

To use DNDGridView, you need to add it in layout xml file or Java code.

<sun.bob.dndgridview.DNDGridView
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="0dp"
    android:layout_weight="1.0"
    android:id="@+id/id_dndgridview"/>

DNDGridView has some restrictions which currently I didn't find a better way to bypass.

First, DNDGridView widget only accept DNDAdapter as it's adapter. It will check adapter's type while calling setAdapter. If it's not an instance of DNDAdapter, it will throw a big IllegalArgumentException.

So, to use drag & drop feature, you need to extend DNDAdapter using your own adapter. You can using sample project as reference.

In short word, you must extends DNDAdapter, you MUST implement getView function, you MUST call setUpDragNDrop after you are done with your item view.

	    ((DNDGridView) findViewById(R.id.id_dndgridview)).setAdapter(new DNDAdapter(this, R.layout.dnd_item) {
        ArrayList data;
        {
            data = new ArrayList();
            for (int i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
                data.add("" + i);
            }
            this.setCustomArray(data);

        }
        @Override
        public View getView(int posistion, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
            View ret = convertView;
            ViewHolder tag;
            if (convertView == null) {
                ret = View.inflate(getContext(), R.layout.dnd_item, null);
                tag = new ViewHolder(posistion);
                tag.imageView = (ImageView) ret.findViewById(R.id.id_imageview);
                tag.textView = (TextView) ret.findViewById(R.id.id_textview);
                ret.setTag(tag);
            } else {
                tag = (ViewHolder) ret.getTag();
            }
            tag.imageView.setImageResource(R.drawable.img0);
            tag.textView.setText((String) data.get(posistion));
            setUpDragNDrop(posistion,ret);
            return ret;
        }
    });

Second, DNDGridView require a DNDViewHolder as view holder. So, if you are using your own viewholder, please extend DNDViewHolder to get this module working. If you didn't specified a view holder, DNDAdapter will automaticlly add one for you.

In short word, your view holder MUST extends DNDViewHolder

class ViewHolder extends DNDViewHolder {
	public ViewHolder(int posistion){
    	super(posistion);
	}
	Object data;
	ImageView imageView;
	TextView textView;
}
