[Android] Can you make a slide for the screen?

Can you make a slide for the screen?

Hello. I want to put a slide function on the screen like the picture above.

Is it possible to create a slide view in ‘android’ using ‘processing’?


this is close for what you want

you can adapt it for up down

Thank you for your kind and quick reply.

  1. First off, the example file is a solution for landscape.

  2. Is it correct to weave the solution for vertical as above? Or is there another way?

Link : Scrollbars up and down to change the positions of the text - #10 by Chrisir


If you look at the link above, you see the code for ‘Chrisir’.

Is there no ‘library’ or other method other than how to create a scrollbar through the code above?

change this line the image moves up/down

 image(img2, height/2, width/2-img2.width/2 + img2Pos*1.5);
 * Scrollbar. 
 * Move the scrollbars left and right to change the positions of the images.

If you look at the link above, there is a ‘vertical’ source code made by ‘Chrisir’.

However, I wonder if it is actually made using this way. Is it to make vertical scrolling like this in ‘Android’? Or is there another way?
