Requirements

Target Sdk Version : 28
Min Sdk Version : 14

How to use

  1. Add this to your build.gradle.
repositories {
    maven {
        url "https://jitpack.io"
    }
}

dependencies {
  implementation 'com.github.recruit-lifestyle:FloatingView:2.4.4'
}
  1. Implement Service for displaying FloatingView
public class ChatHeadService extends Service {
  ... ...
}
  1. You will do the setting of the View to be displayed in the FloatingView(Sample have a set in onStartCommand)
  final LayoutInflater inflater = LayoutInflater.from(this);
  final ImageView iconView = (ImageView) inflater.inflate(R.layout.widget_chathead, null, false);
  iconView.setOnClickListener(......);
  1. Use the FloatingViewManager, make the setting of FloatingView
  mFloatingViewManager = new FloatingViewManager(this, this);
  mFloatingViewManager.setFixedTrashIconImage(R.drawable.ic_trash_fixed);
  mFloatingViewManager.setActionTrashIconImage(R.drawable.ic_trash_action);
  final FloatingViewManager.Options options = new FloatingViewManager.Options();
  options.overMargin = (int) (16 * metrics.density);
  mFloatingViewManager.addViewToWindow(iconView, options);

The second argument of FloatingViewManager is FloatingViewListener

Describe the process (onFinishFloatingView) that is called when you exit the FloatingView

    @Override
    public void onFinishFloatingView() {
        stopSelf();
    }
  1. Add the permission to AndroidManifest
 <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW"/>
 <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.FOREGROUND_SERVICE" />
  1. Define the Service to AndroidManifest

example)

    <application ...>
        ...
        <!-- Demo -->
        <service
            android:name="jp.co.recruit_lifestyle.sample.service.ChatHeadService"
            android:exported="false"/>
        ...
    </application>
  1. Describe the process to start the Service (run on foreground)

example)

  • FloatingViewControlFragment.java
    final Intent intent = new Intent(activity, ChatHeadService.class);
    ContextCompat.startForegroundService(activity, intent);
  • ChatHeadService.java
public int onStartCommand(Intent intent, int flags, int startId) {
    ...
    startForeground(NOTIFICATION_ID, createNotification(this));
    ...
}
  1. Create notification channel (targetSdkVersion >= 26)

example)

if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.O) {
    final String channelId = getString(R.string.default_floatingview_channel_id);
    final String channelName = getString(R.string.default_floatingview_channel_name);
    final NotificationChannel defaultChannel = new NotificationChannel(channelId, channelName, NotificationManager.IMPORTANCE_MIN);
    final NotificationManager manager = (NotificationManager) getSystemService(NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
    if (manager != null) {
        manager.createNotificationChannel(defaultChannel);
    }
}
  1. Add DisplayCutout process(API Level >= 28)

Call FloatingViewManager.findCutoutSafeArea(activity).
Note: Activity must be portrait oriented.
Note: You must not set windowLayoutInDisplayCutoutMode to never.

example)

  • FloatingViewControlFragment.java
final Intent intent = new Intent(activity, ChatHeadService.class);
intent.putExtra(ChatHeadService.EXTRA_CUTOUT_SAFE_AREA, FloatingViewManager.findCutoutSafeArea(activity));
ContextCompat.startForegroundService(activity, intent);
  • ChatHeadService.java
mFloatingViewManager.setSafeInsetRect((Rect) intent.getParcelableExtra(EXTRA_CUTOUT_SAFE_AREA));
