Draw multiple shapes in different views


I created a XML file containing two image view. I want to draw two different circles(different size, color) in the center of each view. How can I do that, especially the coordinates. Thanks!


you can do that using shape Drawables ...

create circle.xml in your Drawable Folder ...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="oval"> <solid android:color="@android:color/transparent"/> <corners android:radius="12px"/> <stroke android:width="2dp" android:color="#000000"/> </shape>

use it in your ImageView

<ImageView android:id="@+id/circleimage" android:layout_height="150dp" android:layout_width="150dp" android:src="@drawable/circle"> </ImageView>

You can use this circle.xml for one or more imageViews ...


Create a subclass of ImageView. Use that subclass in the XML. Then overwrite the

public void draw(Canvas canvas){ super.draw(canvas); // do your drawing here // canvas holds the drawable area // use canvas.drawXXXX methods with basic mathematics to put circles in places you need }

Hope this answers your question.
