<li.yohan.parallax.ParallaxViewPager
    android:id="@+id/viewPager"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />
ParallaxViewPager mPager = ((ParallaxViewPager) findViewById(R.id.pager));
mPager.setAdapter(new Adapter());

set background image just like ViewPager.

You can set in xml:

android:background="@drawable/background"

or in code

setBackgroundResource(int resid)
setBackground(Drawable background)

Configuration

  • you can set speed ratio in xml
<li.yohan.parallax.ParallaxViewPager
     android:id="@+id/viewPager"
     android:layout_width="match_parent"
     android:layout_height="match_parent"
   app:speedRatio="0.5f" />
  • also set in code
ParallaxViewPager mPager = ((ParallaxViewPager) findViewById(R.id.pager));
 mPager.setAdapter(new Adapter());
mPager.setSpeedRatio(0.5f);

Note: the default ratio is 0.5f

Restrictions

  1. The background image’s width should larger than height.
  2. The background image’s width should larger than ViewPager’s width.
  3. You can’t set pager with padding.
  4. If the ratio that user set is not proper, it will be recalculate and reset.
