ViewFlipper

Introduction

A ViewFlipper is a ViewAnimator that switches between two or more views that have been added to it. Only one child is shown at a time. If requested, the ViewFlipper can automatically flip between each child at a regular interval.

XML file:

<ViewFlipper
    android:id="@+id/viewflip"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="250dp"
    android:layout_weight="1"
    />

JAVA code:

public class BlankFragment extends Fragment{
    ViewFlipper viewFlipper;
    FragmentManager fragmentManager;
    int gallery_grid_Images[] = {drawable.image1, drawable.image2, drawable.image3,
            drawable.image1, drawable.image2, drawable.image3, drawable.image1,
            drawable.image2, drawable.image3, drawable.image1
    };

    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState){
        View rootView = inflater.inflate(fragment_blank, container, false);
        viewFlipper = (ViewFlipper)rootView.findViewById(R.id.viewflip);
        for(int i=0; i<gallery_grid_Images.length; i++){
            // This will create dynamic image views and add them to the ViewFlipper.
            setFlipperImage(gallery_grid_Images[i]);
        }
        return rootView;
    }

    private void setFlipperImage(int res) {
        Log.i("Set Filpper Called", res+"");
        ImageView image = new ImageView(getContext());
        image.setBackgroundResource(res);
        viewFlipper.addView(image);
        viewFlipper.setFlipInterval(1000);
        viewFlipper.setAutoStart(true);
    }
