I am trying to achieve the sharedElement to animate an imageView from one activity to another , but my problem is my imageView is inside recyclerView header so it doesn't animate.
So my question is, Is there a way for this to achieve?
I have seen many apps on PlayStore doing it
While starting 2nd activity
String transitionName = getString(R.string.demo);
ActivityOptionsCompat transitionActivityOptions = ActivityOptionsCompat.makeSceneTransitionAnimation(mContext, v, transitionName);
If your First acitivty imageview transition names have to be unique for the transition animation to work. In the Recycler grid onBindView method you have to assign transition name for each imageview seperately using below code
holder.gridImageView.setTransitionName("gridImageTransition" + position);
Am adding the position to each grid image transition name to make it unique.
In ActivityOptionsCompat transitionActivityOptions = ActivityOptionsCompat.makeSceneTransitionAnimation(mContext, v, transitionName);
this transition name should be the same as the transition name you assign to Recycler view header in second activity using
You will have to set the sharedTransition name for the imageView in your header after it has been inflated. Like below. Setting in xml wont work for the reason that it wont be immediately inflated.
Inside onBindViewHolder of your recycler adapter use
