Walkthrough/OnBoarding/First-Time users screen in android studio using ViewPager and ViewPager 2

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create walkthrough screens/onboarding screens in android studio using viewpager and viewpager 2. This screen is also called one time screen of an android app. One time screen because it only displays only for one-time, after that it won’t show until the application is reinstalled.

What is the Walkthrough/Onboarding Screen?

Walkthrough and onBoarding screens are screens for first-time users of the android app.

Now the question is who are the first-time users of the application?

First-time users are those users who download and install the application and use it for the first time.

It may be called a startup guide of an app. Instate of Splash Screen which we have created earlier, we have to create the onboarding screens of our android spp.

So, open your android studio, and let’s get started

Here I create four different onboarding screens just to show you how to use the viewpager and viewpager 2 in the case of creating the onboarding screens.

Add dependency

Example 1. First onboarding screen

  • Now create a new activity for first onboarding screen. And design for the first onboarding screen
  • Create an item container layout for the onboarding screen
  • Create a model class for the items.
  • now, create an adapter for inflate the layout.
  • Next, add the functionality

The output of the first onboarding screen:

Example 2: Second onboarding screen

  • Now create a new activity for the second onboarding screen. And design the main layout.
  • Create an item container layout for the second onboarding screen
  • Create a model class for the items.
  • now, create an adapter to inflate the layout.
  • Next, add the functionality

Output for the second onboarding screen:

Example 3: Third onboarding screen

  • Now create a new activity for the third onboarding screen. And design the main layout.
  • Create the item layouts for the third onboarding screen

Onboarding layout 1

Onboarding layout 2

Onboarding layout 3

Onboarding layout 4

  • Create a transform class for the layout transformation (sorry for more comment lines, I just try to explain, so that it can help you to understand)
  • now, create an adapter to inflate the layouts.
  • Next, add the functionality for the third onboarding screen

The output of the third onboarding screen:

Example 4: Fourth onboarding screen

  • Now create a new activity for the fourth onboarding screen. And design the main layout.
  • Create an item container layout for the second onboarding screen
  • now, create an adapter to inflate the layout.
  • Next, add the functionality

Output for the fourth onboarding screen:

Final Output of the app:
