Usage

Dependency

Step 1. Add the JitPack repository to your build file

Add it to your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        // ...
        maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
    }
}

Step 2. Add the dependency

dependencies {
    // Material Components for Android
    implementation 'com.google.android.material:material:1.1.0'
    
    // Optional: Circle Indicator (To fix the xml preview "Missing classes" error)
    implementation 'me.relex:circleindicator:2.1.4'

    implementation 'com.github.ImaginativeShohag:Why-Not-Image-Carousel:v1.0.0'
}

Note 0. Minimum SDK for this library is API 21 (Android 5.0 Lollipop).

Note 1. Your application have to use AndroidX to use this library.

Note 2. Your have to use *.MaterialComponents.* in you styles.

Finally

Add the view org.imaginativeworld.whynotimagecarousel.ImageCarousel in your layout:

<org.imaginativeworld.whynotimagecarousel.ImageCarousel
    android:id="@+id/carousel"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

Use the CarouselItem class for data item. Initialize the ImageCarousel with data using addData() function:

// Kotlin
val carousel: ImageCarousel = findViewById(R.id.carousel)

val list = mutableListOf<CarouselItem>()

list.add(
    CarouselItem(
        imageUrl = "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1532581291347-9c39cf10a73c?w=1080",
        caption = "Photo by Aaron Wu on Unsplash"
    )
)
list.add(
    CarouselItem(
        imageUrl = "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1534447677768-be436bb09401?w=1080",
        caption = "Photo by Johannes Plenio on Unsplash"
    )
)
// ...

carousel.addData(list)
// Java
ImageCarousel carousel = findViewById(R.id.carousel);

List<CarouselItem> list = new ArrayList<>();

list.add(
    new CarouselItem(
        imageUrl = "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1532581291347-9c39cf10a73c?w=1080",
        caption = "Photo by Aaron Wu on Unsplash"
    )
)
list.add(
    new CarouselItem(
        imageUrl = "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1534447677768-be436bb09401?w=1080",
        caption = "Photo by Johannes Plenio on Unsplash"
    )
)
// ...

carousel.addData(list);

That's all you need to use the library! :)

ImageCarousel functions

You can also set all the attributes programmatically. All the functions and their usages given below:

// Kotlin
val carousel: ImageCarousel = findViewById(R.id.carousel)

// Attributes
carousel.showTopShadow = true
carousel.topShadowAlpha = 0.6f // 0 to 1, 1 means 100%

carousel.showBottomShadow = true
carousel.bottomShadowAlpha = 0.6f // 0 to 1, 1 means 100%

carousel.showCaption = true
carousel.showIndicator = true
carousel.showNavigationButtons = true
carousel.imageScaleType = ImageView.ScaleType.CENTER_CROP
carousel.carouselBackground = ColorDrawable(Color.parseColor("#333333"))
carousel.imagePlaceholder = ContextCompat.getDrawable(
    context,
    R.drawable.ic_picture
)

// For custom item layout, the layout must be consist of an ImageView.
// Set the layout using "itemLayout" attribute and specify the ImageView id
// in the "imageViewId" attribute.
carousel.itemLayout = R.layout.item_carousel
carousel.imageViewId = R.id.img

// For custom previous or next button layout,
// set the layout using "previousButtonLayout" attribute and
// give the View/Button id in "previousButtonId" attribute.
carousel.previousButtonLayout = R.layout.previous_button_layout
carousel.previousButtonId = R.id.btn_previous
carousel.previousButtonMargin = 4F // dp value

carousel.nextButtonLayout = R.layout.next_button_layout
carousel.nextButtonId = R.id.btn_next
carousel.nextButtonMargin = 4F // dp value

carousel.carouselType = CarouselType.BLOCK
carousel.scaleOnScroll = false
carousel.scalingFactor = .15f // 0 to 1; 1 means 100

// If the width of a single item in ImageCarousel is not greater then
// half of the whole ImageCarousel view width, then the ImageCarousel
// will not work as expected, So it is recommended to set this value
// true all the time. So, the carousel will automatically increase the
// width of the items if necessary.
carousel.autoWidthFixing = true

// If you want auto slide, turn this feature on.
carousel.autoPlay = false
carousel.autoPlayDelay = 3000 // Milliseconds
