B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] AS ViewPager based on xCustomListView

Hey,
thanks to @KZero for his good zPager class, i was able to extract a few things from it to make this cross platform view.

I spend a lot of time in creating views, some views i need by my self, but some views not and to create a high quality view cost a lot of time. If you want to support me, then you can do it here by Paypal or with a coffee. :)

This library is compatible and tested with B4A,B4I and B4J!
If you have bugs or a wish then tell me it in the comments.

On B4J use the LEFT and RIGHT keys on your keyboard to change the page.
On B4I you need the GestureRecognizer class. Download it down below.
B4j: jXUI,JavaObject,xCustomListView,jReflection
B4a: XUi,Reflection,xCustomListView
B4i: iXUI,xCustomListView

I replaced the B4A TabStripPager library with AsViewPager, because there is the possibility of blocking the side scroll. Unfortunately, I have encountered a problem that I cannot solve. If I move to a page and from code I modify an edittext that is on a page not visible at that moment; at the end of the operations, when I return to the main page, after a few seconds, for no reason, two pages in the middle are displayed, one half contains the edittext that was corrected by the code. I was unable to solve the problem. If I delete the editText editing, everything works fine. I can't change all the code to fix the problem. Has it already happened to anyone?

For such a problem it is probably better to make a new thread and create an example project which shows the problem. Maybe the EditText get a focus and are triggered by Manifest keyboard settings?

Lazy Loading
Lazy Loading can significantly improve the performance of pages with complex items.
Example: Calendar or Scheduler with 500 or more pages (Weeks, Months, Days)

Use:
  • Enable the "Lazy Loading" property in the designer
  • Add the "LazyLoadingAddContent" event to your form
  • Use the "Parent" parameter from the event to add your layout or views to this panel

Good news about the lazy loading! Will you also modify your calendar to support this? Can be interesting if many, many months have to be shown.

Will you also modify your calendar to support this?
Yes, in the next weeks, currently I use the feature in a not yet released view. And in the calendar some things need to be adjusted to make lazy loading work, but I'm aware that there can be performance issues if there are many events on the calendar, which hopefully can be fixed with this.

B4X:
For i = 0 To 500 -1   
    Dim xpnl As B4XView = xui.CreatePanel("")
    xpnl.SetLayoutAnimated(0,0,0,Root.Width,Root.Height)
    ASViewPager1.AddPage(xpnl,i +1)
Next
    
    Sleep(0)
    ASViewPager1.Commit

Update
  • 1.30
    • Add ResetLazyloadingIndex - when you call "commit" afterwards, it is guaranteed to check if there are empty panels in the lazy loading range, if so, the LazyLoading event is triggered
Example use case
B4X:
xASVP_Horizontal.AddPage(xpnl_background,"")
Sleep(0)
xASVP_Horizontal.ResetLazyloadingIndex
xASVP_Horizontal.Commit
In the example I am dynamically adding more panels after the PageChanged event, the problem is the lazy loading function has already been triggered and would not trigger again as the CurrentIndex has not changed after the add, so the newly added page would not be populated if it were on the next page. If we reset the internal LazyLoading index and then call commit, then it is guaranteed to find the empty newly added page and populate it via the event.

I needed it in the Version 3.0 of the ASCalendarAdvanced View.

    • important resize improvments
    • Add Loading Panel if Base_Resize is calling

    • Add ResetLazyLoadingPanels - Removes all child views from all visible pages
    • LazyLoading Improvments

Now you don't need to be afraid of resizing the window in B4J, it works much better now!
Why the Loading Panel?
Because otherwise you will see other pages, because when resizing the xclv not all panels are adjusted at the same time and this is a workaround to deliver a better user experience.

Version 1.30 is attached in the first post as backup.
