Session Title: Custom Views for Profit and Pleasure
Session Description: "Writing your own View? That's crazy! Have you taken a look at the TextView source code? That thing is about a million lines long! That's way too much work!"
If you've thought this in the past, then I'm here to prove you wrong! Custom Views are actually quite easy to create and make development so much easier. Every day custom Views need not be scary - for your regular app developer they can be a snap and will save you time and effort.
This talk will focus on the more practical elements of custom View creation: when to use them and how to set them up. In particular, we'll talk about simple extension of existing View functionality. We'll go over how to encapsulate pieces of your app in custom ViewGroups, simplifying your Activities. We'll discuss using custom Views and ViewGroups to improve performance. And we'll even dabble in drawing your own Views.
