Public methods

prepareForDrop

added in version 24.1.0
void prepareForDrop (View view, 
                View target, 
                int x, 
                int y)

Called by the ItemTouchHelper after a View is dropped over another View.

A LayoutManager should implement this interface to get ready for the upcoming move operation.

For example, LinearLayoutManager sets up a "scrollToPositionWithOffset" calls so that the View under drag will be used as an anchor View while calculating the next layout, making layout stay consistent.

Parameters
view View: The View which is being dragged. It is very likely that user is still dragging this View so there might be other calls to prepareForDrop() after this one.

target View: The target view which is being dropped on.

x int: The left offset of the View that is being dragged. This value includes the movement caused by the user.

y int: The top offset of the View that is being dragged. This value includes the movement caused by the user.
