If I have a generic list of composables...
List<@Composable () -> Unit>
is it possible to write an if/when statement on what to do if
is of type

There’s no way to peek into a function and see what other functions it calls, but depending on what you’re actually trying to do there are probably other ways to approach the problem

I've been trying and failing to recreate this airbnb-like carousel using accompanist horizontalPager. Which has led me down a rabbit hole to ask the above question. 🤣
It seems like horizontalPager only lets you have 1 item on the screen plus 1 that's peeking in.
But trying to get multiple items (via setting a width on the item composable of like 100.dp) just doesn't work. HorizontalPager just keeps adding a huge gap between items. 🤔 Can't tell if I'm an idiot, or maybe it's not a use case of HP, or if its an HP bug.

@Colton Idle Unless I'm missing something, you can just use a scrollable Row or a LazyRow for this

might be the thing you need. Put the items in a horizontal row, and make it swipeable to "snap" to each item in the row. Or just a normal horizontally-scrolling row if you don't need the snapping behavior

I need the pager dots at the bottom of this too (which isn't shown in the airbnb example), but yes you're right I could do it with a scrollable row.
So... more accurately I want the airbnb carousel with dots. here are the "dots" if anyone is unfamiliar.
also. a nicer benefit too of horizontalPager (that my UX team likes) is that you get item "snapping" with horizontalPager vs just a scollable Row

It sounds like you don't actually want a pager, you just want the snap behavior. Did you see Chris's recent work to separate the snap positioning into something you can apply to any list?

I can't use pager dots with that though can I?

It used to work for me on version 0.17.0 but when i upgraded to 0.19.0 I am facing the same issue.
