Automatic animations on Layout Change

If you want to animate views in a layout without writing big codes. Here is a Simple way.
Find the root element of the layout and add this property to it.

android:animateLayoutChanges="true"

Adding Manual Animations

Fade Out Animation

view.animate().alpha(0.0f);


Fade In Animation

view.animate().alpha(1.0f);

Move Down by height

view.animate().translationY(view.getHeight());


Translate animate to origin Position

view.animate().translationY(view.getHeight());

Adding Duration

view.animate().alpha(0.0f).setDuration(2000);

Chaining Animations

For example, we will combine some animations from above to form one animation.

Lets see how

view.animate()
        .translationY(view.getHeight())
        .alpha(0.0f)
        .setDuration(300);

This will translate the view by its height and fade out in a duration on 3 seconds.

Animation Listeners

We can add start and completion listeners for animations. Here is a simple example

view.animate()
        .translationY(view.getHeight())
        .alpha(0.0f)
        .setDuration(300)
        .setListener(new AnimatorListenerAdapter() {
            @Override
            public void onAnimationEnd(Animator animation) {
                super.onAnimationEnd(animation);
                view.setVisibility(View.GONE);
            }
        });

Left to Right

// To animate view slide out from left to right
public void slideToRight(View view){
TranslateAnimation animate = new TranslateAnimation(0,view.getWidth(),0,0);
animate.setDuration(500);
animate.setFillAfter(true);
view.startAnimation(animate);
view.setVisibility(View.GONE);
}

Right to Left

// To animate view slide out from right to left
public void slideToLeft(View view){
TranslateAnimation animate = new TranslateAnimation(0,-view.getWidth(),0,0);
animate.setDuration(500);
animate.setFillAfter(true);
view.startAnimation(animate);
view.setVisibility(View.GONE);
}

Top to Bottom

// To animate view slide out from top to bottom
public void slideToBottom(View view){
TranslateAnimation animate = new TranslateAnimation(0,0,0,view.getHeight());
animate.setDuration(500);
animate.setFillAfter(true);
view.startAnimation(animate);
view.setVisibility(View.GONE);
}

Bottom to Top

// To animate view slide out from bottom to top
public void slideToTop(View view){
TranslateAnimation animate = new TranslateAnimation(0,0,0,-view.getHeight());
animate.setDuration(500);
animate.setFillAfter(true);
view.startAnimation(animate);
view.setVisibility(View.GONE);
