Recycle(); initialize(context); } public FlowLayout(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) { this(context, attrs, 0); } deepest void initialize(Context context) { //Do any universal initializations you will have //It is empty in our implementation } This code in directory 3-1 is kind of like several different extension of customized perspectives as mentioned in Chapters 1 and a couple of: expand a base category (View, or an current format like a LinearLayout, or the following the ViewGroup). In all instances, you could have customized attributes; we outline the customized attributes in attrs. xml and skim them in constructors. In case of FlowLayout, the customized attributes are “hspace” (horizontal spacing) and “vspace” (vertical spacing) for baby perspectives and new traces as we wrap the kid perspectives. Let’s look  now on the attrs. xml that is going with the code in directory 3-1. Defining customized attributes in Attrs. xml for the FlowLayout directory 3-2 exhibits the attrs. xml for our customized FlowLayout. This dossier should be within the “/res/values” subdirectory. directory 3-2. Defining customized Attributes for FlowLayout The styleable FlowLayout in directory 3-2 defines customized attributes: hspace and vspace. The styleable FlowLayout_Layout customized attributes are outlined for the LayoutParams item that should be outlined through the FlowLayout as an internal type. (We hide this almost immediately. ) those later customized format parameters are saved in every one baby view on behalf of the mother or father structure type, just like the FlowLayout, to permit the kids to override any dad or mum attributes while worthy. by means of conference, we name styleables that belong to the most format by means of the identify of the layout—in this situation, “FlowLayout. ” additionally by means of conference, we name the styleables that belong to the LayoutParams with the structure identify through “layout. ” In directory 3-2, this identify is “FlowLayout_layout. ” you can see later within the bankruptcy how either varieties of attributes are given values in format documents (future directory 3-8). you've already visible in directory 3-1 how FlowLayout styleables are learn. Later  you will see how one can learn the FlowLayout_layout styleables (future directory 3-5). operating with onMeasure(  ) listed below are the major features of onMeasure()when you're operating with a customized structure comparable to FlowLayout. if you are extending a ViewGroup, you must degree the youngsters first and upload these measures to come because the dimension of the ViewGroup. In bankruptcy 1, we acknowledged view has a style referred to as “measure()” that's meant to be referred to as through the fogeys of perspectives as a part of the oldsters’ onMeasure(  ). relating to FlowLayout, FlowLayout is the guardian. The buttons in determine 3-1 are the kid perspectives. So the FlowLayout must name all the baby Button control’s degree(  ) approach in its onMeasure(  ).
