Learning Android Canvas

by | 30 November 2013
Synopsis
When you're writing an application in which you would like to perform specialized drawing and/or control the animation of graphics, you should do so by drawing through a canvas. A canvas works for you as an interface to the actual surface upon which your graphics will be drawn - it holds all of your "draw" calls. Via the Android Canvas, your drawing is actually performed on an underlying Bitmap, which is placed into the window. Learning Android Canvas is a practical guide, which will help you develop applications that contain rich 2D graphics like backgrounds, buttons, and even some small games with static 2D graphics. The book is full of step-by-step lessons and practical examples. This book helps you develop rich graphical applications and some simple games. Learning Android Canvas will help you understand everything that is required to develop an Android application that involves creating 2D graphics from scratch to a fully functional complete application. You will start with zero knowledge of using graphics within Android applications and will then go step by step to learn about different objects and techniques. In the end you will be able to develop a complete application fully loaded with graphics and functions. The book will give you a detailed practical explanation of Nine-Patch images and its importance in designing layouts and backgrounds. We will also take a detailed look at user interactions such as touch, capturing the action, and responding to them accordingly. Finally we will have a working, fully functional graphic application that uses all the knowledge that we have acquired previously.
