Display Animated Gif Image, Android

Recently, I’ve worked displaying Animated Gif Image as while loading some network stuff in app screen.

Solution for displaying the Animated gif image

Gif Image

After some struggle for it, I finally happen to use Webview for displaying the Animated gif image which worked as required.

Here is simple code snippet

I place this WebView in a RelativeLayout

<WebView android:id=”@+id/webviewSpinner” 
android:layout_width=”fill_parent” 
android:layout_height=”fill_parent” 
android:layout_centerInParent=”true” 
android:layout_gravity=”center” 
android:scrollbars=”none” 
android:visibility=”invisible” >
</WebView>

and in Activity, written following code

webviewSpinner=(WebView) findViewById(R.id.webviewSpinner); 
webviewSpinner.setWebViewClient(new MyWebViewClient()); 
webviewSpinner.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true); 
webviewSpinner.setBackgroundColor(0x50000000); 
webviewSpinner.setLayerType(WebView.LAYER_TYPE_SOFTWARE, null); 
webviewSpinner.getSettings().setRenderPriority(RenderPriority.HIGH); 
webviewSpinner.getSettings().setCacheMode(WebSettings.LOAD_NO_CACHE); 
webviewSpinner.loadDataWithBaseURL(“file:///android_asset/”,htmlString,”text/html”,”utf-8”,”“); 

and in the jave code WebView object loadDataWithBaseURL method, i place htmlString variable, which is a String variable with Html content as below

private String htmlString=”<html><body><table width="100%" height="100%"><tr><td align="center" valign="center"><img src="478_spinner.gif"></td></tr></table></body></html>”;

I just make the WebView visible and invisible while loading data, which worked like a loader.

Hope it helps somebody…
