Glass-break effect for views.



Download APK


Android Studio

dependencies {
   compile 'com.zys:brokenview:1.0.3'


Just put brokenview.jar into the libs folder of your app.

Basic Example

brokenView = BrokenView.add2Window(context);
listener = new BrokenTouchListener.Builder(brokenView).build();

More Config

Use BrokenTouchListener.Builder for more configurations, and set custom attributes as shown below:


    setComplexity(...).          // default 12 

    setBreakDuration(...).       // in milliseconds, default 700ms

    setFallDuration(...).        // in milliseconds, default 2000ms

    setCircleRiftsRadius(...).   // in dp, default 66dp, you can disable circle-rifts effect by set it to 0

    setEnableArea(...).          // set the region or childview that can enable break effect,
                                 // be sure the childView or childView in region doesn't intercept any touch event

    setPaint(...).               // the paint to draw rifts


You can also set a callback to listen to the status of animations, like this:

brokenView.setCallback.(new BrokenCallback() {

   public void onStart(View v) {...}

   public void onCancel(View v) {...}

   public void onCancelEnd(View v) {...}

   public void onRestart(View v) {...}

   public void onFalling(View v) {...}

   public void onFallingEnd(View v) {...}
