Public Methods

public Drawable getCheckMarkDrawable ()

Added in API level 16

Gets the checkmark drawable

Related XML Attributes
Returns
  • The drawable use to represent the checkmark, if any.

public boolean isChecked ()

Added in API level 1

public void onInitializeAccessibilityEvent (AccessibilityEvent event)

Added in API level 14

Initializes an AccessibilityEvent with information about this View which is the event source. In other words, the source of an accessibility event is the view whose state change triggered firing the event.

Example: Setting the password property of an event in addition to properties set by the super implementation:

 public void onInitializeAccessibilityEvent(AccessibilityEvent event) {
     super.onInitializeAccessibilityEvent(event);
     event.setPassword(true);
 }

If an View.AccessibilityDelegate has been specified via calling setAccessibilityDelegate(AccessibilityDelegate) its onInitializeAccessibilityEvent(View, AccessibilityEvent) is responsible for handling this call.

Note: Always call the super implementation before adding information to the event, in case the default implementation has basic information to add.

Parameters
event The event to initialize.

public void onInitializeAccessibilityNodeInfo (AccessibilityNodeInfo info)

Added in API level 14

Initializes an AccessibilityNodeInfo with information about this view. The base implementation sets:

Subclasses should override this method, call the super implementation, and set additional attributes.

If an View.AccessibilityDelegate has been specified via calling setAccessibilityDelegate(AccessibilityDelegate) its onInitializeAccessibilityNodeInfo(View, AccessibilityNodeInfo) is responsible for handling this call.

Parameters
info The instance to initialize.

public void onRtlPropertiesChanged (int layoutDirection)

Added in API level 17

Called when any RTL property (layout direction or text direction or text alignment) has been changed. Subclasses need to override this method to take care of cached information that depends on the resolved layout direction, or to inform child views that inherit their layout direction. The default implementation does nothing.

Parameters
layoutDirection the direction of the layout

public void setCheckMarkDrawable (Drawable d)

Added in API level 1

Set the checkmark to a given Drawable. This will be drawn when isChecked() is true.

protected int[] onCreateDrawableState (int extraSpace)

Added in API level 1

Generate the new Drawable state for this view. This is called by the view system when the cached Drawable state is determined to be invalid. To retrieve the current state, you should use getDrawableState().

Parameters

Returns
  • Returns an array holding the current Drawable state of the view.
