How can i swipe horizontally after locating an element using Appium in an Android app?

I have used the following code, but it is not working:

int startX = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@class='android.widget.FrameLayout' and @index='1']")).getLocation.getX();
int startY = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@class='android.widget.FrameLayout' and @index='1']")).getLocation.getY();


and the error I get is:

getLocation cannot be resolved or is not a field

Answer

Firstly you should try getting location as getLocation()instead of: .getLocation.getY().

Secondly you can implement swipe/scroll in all directions using:

TouchAction action = new TouchAction(driver);

        int startY = element1.getLocation().getY() + (element1.getSize().getHeight() / 2);
        int startX = element1.getLocation().getX() + (element1.getSize().getWidth() / 2);

        int endX = element2.getLocation().getX() + (element2.getSize().getWidth() / 2);
        int endY = element2.getLocation().getY() + (element2.getSize().getHeight() / 2);

        action.press(startX, startY).waitAction(2000).moveTo(endX, endY).release().perform();
