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,jPager,jReflection
B4a: XUi,Reflection,xCustomListView
B4i: iXUI,xCustomListView

jPager
The xCustomListview was not good enough for desktop use, it often gave me a stomach ache. So I decided to develop a custom pager for the AS_ViewPager for B4J.
Switching between pages is done with the Arrow keys, or with the functions: NextPage/PreviousPage
Impressive work. I hope this should resolve observed flickering I have encountered, discussed here.. https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...g-only-one-page-out-of-multiple-pages.139658/ thank you.

On Android platform, sometimes the page transition is only partially completed.
Look at the picture below: the black stripe at the arrow position, is the next page.
Scrolling is halted at this position: the PageChanged event is fired with the position of the next page (the black one), which is only partially displayed, while the previous one is still on screen.
Swiping again will bring the right page on screen.
I haven't still identified what is the condition that triggers this behavior, and I can't reproduce it at will.
I'm reporting it here, so if someone is also observing the same, maybe we'll figure it out.

Dear Alexander,

would you please check line 315 in ASViewPage.Base_Resize()? An #IF B4J is not closed until the next #IF B4A or B4i (in line 324) is opened. This might be a programming error. Thanks.

The lib file on page 1 doesn`t seem to be version 2...where can I download it as I need it to use your Datepicker.

Thanks, James

Apologies found my issue...It was an outdated version of the library lurking in a different folder. Once deleted it shows I`m using V2.

Please make sure your paths are configured correctly and the asviewpager.jar is located in the Additional Libraries folder.

Can we use it as Wizard ? I mean to use each page as form ?
Thanks.

That is the purpose of this component. You can see an example at AS_SlidingOnboarding.
