Motion Layout Example


MotionLayout is a layout type that helps you manage motion and widget animation in your app. MotionLayout is a subclass of ConstraintLayout and builds upon its rich layout capabilities. As part of the ConstraintLayout library, MotionLayout is available as a support library and is backwards-compatible to API level 14.

3: activity_main_start.xml:

4: activity_main_end.xml:

5: activity_main_motion.xml:

We can also use the constraint set to animate the layout for animation from start to end.
