The low-level engine offers a Matrix-based stream of updates, as long as it is fed with touch events and knows the dimensions of your content.

There is no strict limit over what you can do with a Matrix,

  • move Canvas objects around
  • transform View hierarchies
  • apply to ImageViews or Bitmap
  • transform MotionEvents
  • probably more

Direct usage

If you are interested in using the engine directly, I encourage you to take a look at the ZoomLayout or ZoomImageView implementations. It is extremely simple. Basically:

  • You construct a ZoomEngine passing the View that acts as a container for your content
  • As soon as you know it (and whenever it changes), you pass the content dimensions using setContentSize(float, float)
  • As soon as you receive them, you pass touch updates to onInterceptTouchEvent or onTouchEvent
  • Any ZoomEngine.Listener subscribed will be passed Matrix updates
API Description
setContentSize(float, float) Sets the size of the content, whatever it is.
onTouchEvent(MotionEvent) Should be called to feed the engine with new events.
onInterceptTouchEvent(MotionEvent) Should be called to feed the engine with new events.
setContainerSize(float, float) Updates the container size. This is generally not needed. The engine will get the container dimensions using a OnGlobalLayout listener. However, in some cases, you might want to trigger this directly.

The size methods will also accept a boolean indicating whether the engine should re-apply the transformation. The transformation is always applied if the engine is in its starting state.
