Android Snippet: Circle Image

A few months ago I was working on a project which required me to build a class that would download an image form the web, decode it, crop it, and show it in a circle – with a transparent background behind it, because it had to sit on top of different layout views.

I was only reminded of that seeing Romain Guy‘s blog post regarding images with rounded corners.

The end goal was to show the image just like an ImageView, only in a circle. This required me to extend a View and override the onDraw method to show it.

The circle part was tricky, so I thought I’d share that piece of code…
