Nativescript-Ripple

This plugin aims to bring a native (or close to native) ripple implementation on Android and iOS. The android version uses a RippleDrawable and conserves the previous background, as well as CSS styles.

Installation

tns plugin add nativescript-ripple

Usage

This will only work on Android Lollipop 5.0 or later and any version of iOS.

Ripple Options

rippleColor sets the ripple color. Examples: "#ffffff" | "rgba(255,255,255,0.5)".

rippleColorAlpha sets the ripple color alpha (multiplicative). Default: 0.25. NOTE: This is multiplicative to a 0.5 alpha given by the native class RippleDrawable. This same value is hardcoded in iOS to make both platforms behave the same.

rippleLayer sets the layer the ripple is applied to (ANDROID ONLY). Allowed values: foreground (default on API>=23) | background. Setting this to background will make the ripple only appear on the View's background (meaning it won't appear in front of an image, for example).

rippleEnabled can be set to "false" (rippleEnabled="false") to disable the ripple. This will also disable ripple effects on Views that have them natively (like Button).

Angular

Import the NgRippleModule

If you're using other modules that change the background (like https://github.com/Especializa/nativescript-ng-shadow), ensure to import it LAST, otherwise the Ripple background will be overwritten.

import { NgRippleModule } from 'nativescript-ripple/angular';

@NgModule({
imports: [
NgRippleModule,
// ...
],
// ...
})
export class MyModule { }

Use it in the templates:

<Label ripple text="my label text" (tap)="tapfn()"></Label>

<StackLayout ripple rippleColor="#00ff00" style="padding: 30; border-radius: 10;" (tap)="tapfn()">
<Label text="this is inside the layout!"></Label>
</StackLayout>

Implementation details

On Android, if the view does not have a background, we assign a transparent one. Otherwise, turning the screen off and then on again makes the background the same as the mask color (black).

Known Issues

No Ripple on Android

If your Ripple is not working on Android, try the following:

  1. Verify the view you're applying the Ripple to has a tap event
  2. If the view is a Text-like view (Buttons, Labels, etc), there is a bug that prevents any foreground to be applied to it when textWrap is not true and textAlignment is center or right. There are many fixes (only one is needed):
    1. Wrap the View in another layout (like a GridLayout)
    2. Change the rippleLayer to background
    3. Use textWrap="true"
    4. Disable HorizontallyScrolling for your View (yourLabel.android.setHorizontallyScrolling(false);). Warning: this is set to true every time textAlignment changes
