Waterfall Toolbar

Android Arsenal JitPack License Waterfall Toolbar is an Android version of Material Design's web component waterfall toolbar. Basically, what it does is dynamize an ordinary Toolbar, increasing and decreasing its shadow when an associated view is scrolled. You can download the sample.apk to get a better notion of what's going on. Sample

Setup

Gradle dependency

Waterfall Toolbar is available on Jitpack. To add this library to your project, add the code below to your root (not module) build.gradle file:
allprojects {
repositories {
...
maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
}
}
And this one to your module build.gradle file:
dependencies {
...
compile 'com.github.hugocastelani:waterfall-toolbar:0.1.1'
}

Implementation

Implementing Waterfall Toolbar is quite simple. All you gotta do is add it to your layout via XML or Java and refer a RecyclerView or a ScrollView. Your XML code:
<com.hugocastelani.waterfalltoolbar.library.WaterfallToolbar
android:id="@+id/waterfall_toolbar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content">
<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
android:id="@+id/toolbar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="?actionBarSize"/>
</com.hugocastelani.waterfalltoolbar.library.WaterfallToolbar>
Your Java code:
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
@Override
public void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
...
WaterfallToolbar mWaterfallToolbar = (WaterfallToolbar) findViewById(R.id.waterfall_toolbar);
mWaterfallToolbar.addRecyclerView(mRecyclerView);
}
}
Congratulations, you're all set! Note: you can do whatever you want with your inner Toolbar, Waterfall Toolbar won't interfere.

Customization

Well, there are people who follow standards and people who create their standards. These last ones can customize three aspects of Waterfall Toolbar. Note: sample project provides a nice environment to test all these things. Maybe you should give it a try.

Initial elevation

The elevation with which the toolbar starts. Default value: 1 dp. Your Java code:
mWaterfallToolbar.setInitialElevation(0);
Result: New initial shadow As you can see, that initial tiny shadow no longer exists. Note: Waterfall Toolbar extends CardView, and its elevation in taken seriously by Android. If you set elevation as 0 and there's another view below it, Waterfall Toolbar is going to be overlaid. Fortunately, if you set the views' limits properly, you won't have any related trouble.

Final elevation

The elevation the toolbar gets when it reaches final scroll elevation. Default value: 6 dp. Your Java code:
mWaterfallToolbar.setFinalElevation(10);
Result: New final shadow As result, the final shadow gets much bigger.

Scroll final position

The percentage of the screen's height that is going to be scrolled to reach the final elevation. Default value: 6%. Your Java code:
// first gif
mWaterfallToolbar.setScrollFinalPosition(2);
// second gif
mWaterfallToolbar.setScrollFinalPosition(20);
Result: Short value to scroll final position Long value to scroll final position Now, the final shadow takes much less and much longer to completely appear, respectively.

Current project situation

Waterfall Toolbar can be used, but there's one inconvenient bugs yet. I'm going to try to fix it in my spare time.
