Android value animator example

Value animator is having an interface which will get updated in each frames.

For implementing a value animator we just need to implement the following function in your class file.

public void animateValue(float initialval, float finalval, final TextView textview) {

ValueAnimator valueAnimator = ValueAnimator.ofFloat(initialval,finalval);
valueAnimator.addUpdateListener(new ValueAnimator.AnimatorUpdateListener() {
public void onAnimationUpdate(ValueAnimator valueAnimator) {

Double val=Double.parseDouble(valueAnimator.getAnimatedValue().toString());
