B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS ScrollingChips based on xCustomListView - Display your Hashtags or Categories

I removed the old code and took the code from the AS_Chips to make this view even better.

I spend a lot of time in creating views, like this and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me and further views, then you can do it here by Paypal. :)

Without scroll alternative:

B4j: jXUI,xCustomListView
B4a: XUi,xCustomListView
B4i: iXUI,xCustomListView

Alexander, this is really great!
I had been searching for a solution to display tags/chips but "tags" is a problematic word to search for as it has many meanings ;-)

Do you also have a "non-scrolling" way of creating tags (multiline if there are many tags) and preferably on demand with an "X" so that the user can also delete the tags in the UI?

Thanks so much :)

Best regards,

Chris

Should be quick to make, I can create one later ;)

Really? That would be awesome ;-)
I try to achieve s.th. like this for B4i, B4A and B4J:
1649863399972.png

So that I can display 1..n elements as tags/chips and (if the UI is in edit mode) remove some by clicking on the "X" (so the "X" shouldn't always be there)...
And if I have more elements than fit into one row/line it should get multiline...

Do you think we (or to be exact you ;-) ) could make that work?

Thanks a LOT for your help in advance!

Best regards,

Chris

This was actually planned for this library, but I didn't continue the project where I had used it, so I didn't need it and nobody had asked for it yet.

Do you think we (or to be exact you ;-) ) could make that work?
easy :)

1 - Can I change the height and corner of the tag?

2 - Can I put a border in the tag?

Thanks in advance.

Update
  • 2.00
    • Complete new development
    • Now works like AS_Chips
The version is absolutely no longer compatible with the old, the views must be pulled again on the form, because the name has changed.
I removed the old code and took the code from the AS_Chips to make this view even better.

Now you can do things like this:
AS ScrollingTags new features.gif

B4X:
    AS_ScrollingChips1.SelectionMode = "Single"
    AS_ScrollingChips1.ChipPropertiesGlobal.Width = 30dip
    AS_ScrollingChips1.ChipPropertiesGlobal.Height = 30dip
    AS_ScrollingChips1.ChipPropertiesGlobal.CornerRadius = 30dip/2
    AS_ScrollingChips1.ChipPropertiesGlobal.TextGap = 0
    
    AS_ScrollingChips1.AddChip2("",Null,xui.Color_RGB(73, 98, 164),xui.Color_RGB(73, 98, 164))
    AS_ScrollingChips1.AddChip2("",Null,xui.Color_RGB(141, 68, 173),xui.Color_RGB(141, 68, 173))
    AS_ScrollingChips1.AddChip2("",Null,xui.Color_RGB(45, 136, 121),xui.Color_RGB(45, 136, 121))
    AS_ScrollingChips1.AddChip2("",Null,xui.Color_RGB(221, 95, 96),xui.Color_RGB(221, 95, 96))
    
    AS_ScrollingChips1.RefreshChips
Get the selections:
B4X:
Log(AS_ScrollingChips1.Selections.Get(0))
