Scratch Card View is one of the most seen UI components in Android apps. This type of UI component is generally seen in payments apps such as Google pay and many other payment apps. Now if you are an Android developer then you should get amazed at How we can create this type of UI component in our Android app. In this article, we will take a look at the implementation of Scratch Card View in Android. For the implementation of Scratch Card View, we will be using the library from GitHub. Using this library we will create a simple Scratch Card View and we will reveal it. We are going to implement this project using both Java and Kotlin Programming Language for Android.

Step by Step Implementation

Step 1: Create a New Project in Android Studio

To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. The code for that has been given in both Java and Kotlin Programming Language for Android.

Step 2: Adding Dependency to the build.gradle File

 Go to Module build.gradle file and add this dependency and Add the Below Dependency in the Dependencies section.

implementation 'com.github.cooltechworks:ScratchView:v1.1'

Add the Support Library in your settings.gradle File. This library Jitpack is a novel package repository. It is made for JVM so that any library which is present in Github and Bitbucket can be directly used in the application.

dependencyResolutionManagement {
    repositoriesMode.set(RepositoriesMode.FAIL_ON_PROJECT_REPOS)
    repositories {
        google()
        mavenCentral()
        
        // add the following
        maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
    }
}

After adding this Dependency, Sync the Project and now we will move towards its implementation.

Step 3: Working with the XML Files

Next, go to the activity_main.xml file, which represents the UI of the project. Below is the code for the activity_main.xml file. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.

XML

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/container"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">
 
    <!-- Scratch Card  view to display our hidden image src attribute
    is to add image which will be visible after scratching of our card -->
    <com.cooltechworks.views.ScratchImageView
        android:id="@+id/idScratchCardIv"
        android:layout_width="200dp"
        android:layout_height="200dp"
        android:layout_centerInParent="true"
        android:background="@color/white"
        android:src="@drawable/gfgimage" />
</RelativeLayout>

                    

Step 4: Working with the MainActivity File

Go to the MainActivity File and refer to the following code. Below is the code for the MainActivity File. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.

Java

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.Toast;
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;
import com.cooltechworks.views.ScratchImageView;
 
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
 
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
 
        // initializing our scratchcardimageview.
        ScratchImageView scratchImageView = findViewById(R.id.idScratchCardIv);
        scratchImageView.setRevealListener(new ScratchImageView.IRevealListener() {
            @Override
            public void onRevealed(ScratchImageView iv) {
                // this method is called after revealing the image.
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "image is revealed", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
 
            @Override
            public void onRevealPercentChangedListener(ScratchImageView siv, float percent) {
                // we can check how much percentage of
                // image is revealed using percent variable
            }
        });
    }
}

                    

Kotlin

import android.os.Bundle
import android.widget.Toast
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity
import com.cooltechworks.views.ScratchImageView
 
class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {
     
    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main)
 
        // initializing our scratchcardimageview.
        val scratchImageView = findViewById<ScratchImageView>(R.id.idScratchCardIv)
        scratchImageView.setRevealListener(object : ScratchImageView.IRevealListener {
            override fun onRevealed(iv: ScratchImageView) {
                // this method is called after revealing the image.
                Toast.makeText(this@MainActivity, "image is revealed", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
            }
 
            override fun onRevealPercentChangedListener(siv: ScratchImageView, percent: Float) {
                // we can check how much percentage of
                // image is revealed using percent variable
            }
        })
    }
}

                    

Output:
