Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

The tools namespace allows for showing view properties in layout designer.

For example using tools:listItem="@layout/{custom_layout} it is possible to show list with custom row layout in Android Studio designer.

Question is:

Is it possible to show layout inside ViewPager?

How to&Answers:

Nope, there is no such attribute.

Currently (Nov 2017) there is:

  • tools:context Intended for: Any root View

  • tools:layout Intended for: fragment

  • tools:listitem / tools:listheader / tools:listfooter
    Intended for: AdapterView (and subclasses like ListView)

  • tools:showIn Intended for: Any root View in a layout that’s referred to by an include

  • tools:menu Intended for: Any root View

For resources

  • tools:shrinkMode

  • tools:keep

  • tools:discard

General:

  • tools: instead of android: Intended for: View
