Bi-direction sliding ViewFlipper

Last exercise show a Example of ViewFlipper. It always slide from left to right, no matter you click previous or next button. In this exercise, we will implement bi-direction sliding. Slide to right if you click next button, slide left if you click previous button. This technique can also be applied on ViewAnimator, TextSwitcher, ImageSwitcher and ViewSwitcher.

Bi-direction sliding ViewFlipper

Create /res/anim/ folder, and create the following XMLs to define the animation.

slide_in_left.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
 <translate android:fromXDelta="-50%p" android:toXDelta="0"
            android:duration="1000"/>
 <alpha android:fromAlpha="0.0" android:toAlpha="1.0"
            android:duration="1000" />
</set>


slide_in_right.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
 <translate android:fromXDelta="50%p" android:toXDelta="0"
            android:duration="1000"/>
 <alpha android:fromAlpha="0.0" android:toAlpha="1.0"
            android:duration="1000" />
</set>


slide_out_left.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
 <translate android:fromXDelta="0" android:toXDelta="-50%p"
            android:duration="1000"/>
 <alpha android:fromAlpha="1.0" android:toAlpha="0.0"
            android:duration="1000" />
</set>


slide_out_right.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
 <translate android:fromXDelta="0" android:toXDelta="50%p"
            android:duration="1000"/>
 <alpha android:fromAlpha="1.0" android:toAlpha="0.0"
            android:duration="1000" />
</set>


Modify layout file, all child View of <ViewFlipper> have android:layout_width="match_parent".
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
