With these it helps Measuring a custom view is actually easier than it looks. You should take a look at MeasureSpec.
You generally need to handle cases where your view can be given a specific size, wrap_content or match_parent.
    protected void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec) {
        int widthMode = MeasureSpec.getMode(widthMeasureSpec);
        int heightMode = MeasureSpec.getMode(heightMeasureSpec);
        int width = MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec);
        int height = MeasureSpec.getSize(heightMeasureSpec);

        if (widthMode == MeasureSpec.EXACTLY) {
            width = //Calculation
        } else if (widthMode == MeasureSpec.AT_MOST) {
            width = //Calculation
        } else {
            // UNSPECIFIED
            width = //Calculation

        if (heightMode == MeasureSpec.EXACTLY) {
            height = //Calculation
        } else if (heightMode == MeasureSpec.AT_MOST) {
            height = //Calculation
        } else {
            // UNSPECIFIED
            height = //Calculation

        setMeasuredDimension(width, height);
    protected void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec) {
        int widthMode = MeasureSpec.getMode(widthMeasureSpec);
        int heightMode = MeasureSpec.getMode(heightMeasureSpec);
        int width = MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec);
        int height = MeasureSpec.getSize(heightMeasureSpec);

        measureChild(mChild, widthMeasureSpec, heightMeasureSpec);

        int childWidth = mChild.getMeasuredWidth();
        int childHeight = mChild.getMeasuredHeight();

        if (widthMode == MeasureSpec.EXACTLY) {
            width = MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec);
        } else if (widthMode == MeasureSpec.AT_MOST) {
            width = Math.min(width, (int) (childWidth + (mStrokeWidth * 2)));

        if (heightMode == MeasureSpec.EXACTLY) {
            height = MeasureSpec.getSize(heightMeasureSpec);
        } else if (heightMode == MeasureSpec.AT_MOST) {
            height = Math.min(height, (int) (childHeight + (mStrokeWidth * 2)));

        setMeasuredDimension(width, height);

Modified onCreate from Activity
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    imageView = (ImageView)findViewById(R.id.android_image);
    cropBox = new CropBox(this, imageView);
    relativeLayout = (RelativeLayout)findViewById(R.id.crop_test_layout);
public class CropBox extends View {

    private static final int CROP_BOX_START_X = 5;
    private static final int CROP_BOX_START_Y = 5;
    private static final int CROP_BOX_END_X = 305;
    private static final int CROP_BOX_END_Y = 105;

    private static final int DRAG_SQUARE = 75;

    public ImageView mImageView;
    boolean mIsFirstClick = false;

    private Paint paint = new Paint();
    private Rect mRect;

    public CropBox(Context context, ImageView aBaseView) {
        mImageView = aBaseView;
        setOnTouchListener(new Crop());

    public CropBox(Context context, AttributeSet attributeSet) {
        super(context, attributeSet);

    public void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {



        canvas.drawRect(mRect, paint);

        canvas.drawLine(mRect.right-DRAG_SQUARE, mRect.bottom-DRAG_SQUARE, 
                mRect.right, mRect.bottom-DRAG_SQUARE, paint);

        canvas.drawLine(mRect.right-DRAG_SQUARE, mRect.bottom-DRAG_SQUARE, 
                mRect.right-DRAG_SQUARE, mRect.bottom, paint);

    class Crop implements OnTouchListener {

        private static final int NONE = 0;
        private static final int BOX_DRAG = 1;
        private static final int BORDER_DRAG = 2;

        private int mode = NONE;

        private PointF start = new PointF();

        public boolean onTouch(View view, MotionEvent event) {
            RelativeLayout.LayoutParams layoutParams = (RelativeLayout.LayoutParams)view.getLayoutParams();

            switch(event.getAction() & MotionEvent.ACTION_MASK) {

                case MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN:
                    start.set(event.getX(), event.getY());

                    if((event.getX() <= mRect.right && event.getX() >=(mRect.right - DRAG_SQUARE)) 
                            && (event.getY() >= mRect.top && event.getY() >=(mRect.bottom - DRAG_SQUARE))){
                        mode = BORDER_DRAG;
                        mIsFirstClick = false;
                    else if(mRect.contains((int)event.getX(), (int)event.getY())) {
                        mode = BOX_DRAG;
                        if (mIsFirstClick){
                            mRect = new Rect(CROP_BOX_START_X, CROP_BOX_START_Y, 
                                    CROP_BOX_END_X, CROP_BOX_END_Y);
                            mIsFirstClick = false;  
                        } else {
                            mIsFirstClick = true;   
                        mode = NONE;
                        mIsFirstClick = true;

                case MotionEvent.ACTION_UP:
                    mode = NONE;

                case MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE:
                    mIsFirstClick = false;
                    if(mode == BOX_DRAG) {
                        layoutParams.leftMargin = (int)event.getX() - (int)start.x + view.getLeft();
                        layoutParams.topMargin = (int)event.getY() - (int)start.y + view.getTop();
                    else if(mode == BORDER_DRAG) {
                        if (event.getX() > view.getLeft() && event.getY() > view.getTop()){
                            mRect.right = (int) event.getX();

                    while(layoutParams.topMargin + 5 < mImageView.getTop())
                    while(layoutParams.leftMargin + mRect.right > mImageView.getRight())
                    while(layoutParams.topMargin + mRect.bottom > mImageView.getBottom())

Tag : java , By : PsyberMonkey
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
fixed the issue. Will look into that further I have problem to set the height and width of a image view inside a Fragment activity. I am using the Layout Param. My code is like this , Easy way to do it:
 Display display = getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay();
 ImageView iv = (LinearLayout) findViewById(R.id.left);
 int width = display.getWidth(); // ((display.getWidth()*20)/100) 
 int height = display.getHeight();// ((display.getHeight()*30)/100)
 LinearLayout.LayoutParams parms = new      LinearLayout.LayoutParams(width,height);
