Building a Custom View With Android

This week I’m attending AnDevCon in San Francisco and in the first tutorial in the first day of the event, I watched a really nice workshot by Chiu-Ki Chan’s titled Hands-on Android Custom View Workshop. The code is here on Github.

We built a simple custom view using circles, arcs and onDraw to draw some kind of pie chart that reacts to click, sends change events, etc.

I implemented the FractionView with some small changes, animating it into some kind of clock/stopwatch thing that animates by itself. Below is a GIF with the sample app running.

Please feel free to play with it and check out my fork on Github.
