How to animate to wrap_content?


Is it possible to animate using ValueAnimator to wrap_content? this only seems to work with constant values.

public static void valueAnimate(final View obj, int from, int to, Interpolator interpolator, long duration, long delay){ ValueAnimator anim = ValueAnimator.ofInt(from, to); anim.setInterpolator(interpolator == null ? DEFAULT_INTERPOLATOR : interpolator); anim.setDuration(duration); anim.addUpdateListener(new ValueAnimator.AnimatorUpdateListener() { @Override public void onAnimationUpdate(ValueAnimator animation) { Integer value = (Integer) animation.getAnimatedValue(); obj.getLayoutParams().height = value.intValue(); obj.requestLayout(); } }); anim.setStartDelay(delay); anim.start(); }

How could I pass a the to parameter as wrap_content?

Animator.valueAnimate(mapUtilsContainer, CURR_MAPUTILC_H, 800, OVERSHOOT, 300, 0);

You can do something like this. Pass a view that is set initially to gone.

public static void expand(final View view) { view.measure(LinearLayout.LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT, LinearLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT); final int targetHeight = view.getMeasuredHeight(); // Set initial height to 0 and show the view view.getLayoutParams().height = 0; view.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE); ValueAnimator anim = ValueAnimator.ofInt(view.getMeasuredHeight(), targetHeight); anim.setInterpolator(new AccelerateInterpolator()); anim.setDuration(1000); anim.addUpdateListener(new ValueAnimator.AnimatorUpdateListener() { @Override public void onAnimationUpdate(ValueAnimator animation) { ViewGroup.LayoutParams layoutParams = view.getLayoutParams(); layoutParams.height = (int) (targetHeight * animation.getAnimatedFraction()); view.setLayoutParams(layoutParams); } }); anim.addListener(new AnimatorListenerAdapter() { @Override public void onAnimationEnd(Animator animation) { // At the end of animation, set the height to wrap content // This fix is for long views that are not shown on screen ViewGroup.LayoutParams layoutParams = view.getLayoutParams(); layoutParams.height = ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT; } }); anim.start(); }

An easy solution is to use android:animateLayoutChanges attribute in your layout which includes your component. This is for Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.JELLY_BEAN (Android 4.3). For example, I have one EditText which needs to change from a certain height to wrap_content.


Add the android:animateLayoutChanges attribute to my ScrollView.

< ScrollView ... android:animateLayoutChanges="true"> </li> <li>

Add this in your onCreateView()


</li> </ol>

Then you will see a fairly smooth change of the EditText height.

<ol start="3"><li>

Code to change the height of EditText to wrap_content

fun wrapText() { val layoutParams = this.layoutParams layoutParams.height = ViewGroup.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT this.layoutParams = layoutParams isExpanded = false } </li> </ol>
