Public Methods
abstract void connect()
Connects the client to Google Play services.
abstract void disconnect()
Closes the connection to Google Play services.
abstract boolean isConnected()
Checks if the client is currently connected to the service, so that requests to other methods will succeed.
abstract boolean isConnecting()
Checks if the client is attempting to connect to the service.
abstract boolean isConnectionCallbacksRegistered(GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks listener)
Returns true if the specified listener is currently registered to receive connection events.
abstract boolean isConnectionFailedListenerRegistered(GooglePlayServicesClient.OnConnectionFailedListener listener)
Returns true if the specified listener is currently registered to receive connection failed events.
abstract void registerConnectionCallbacks(GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks listener)
Registers a listener to receive connection events from this GooglePlayServicesClient.
abstract void registerConnectionFailedListener(GooglePlayServicesClient.OnConnectionFailedListener listener)
Registers a listener to receive connection failed events from this GooglePlayServicesClient.
abstract void unregisterConnectionCallbacks(GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks listener)
Removes a connection listener from this GooglePlayServicesClient.
abstract void unregisterConnectionFailedListener(GooglePlayServicesClient.OnConnectionFailedListener listener)
Removes a connection failed listener from the GooglePlayServicesClient.

Public Methods

public abstract void connect ()

Connects the client to Google Play services. This method returns immediately, and connects to the service in the background. If the connection is successful, onConnected(Bundle) is called. On a failure, onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult) is called.

public abstract void disconnect ()

Closes the connection to Google Play services. No calls can be made on this object after calling this method.

See Also

public abstract boolean isConnected ()

Checks if the client is currently connected to the service, so that requests to other methods will succeed. Applications should guard client actions caused by the user with a call to this method.

Returns
  • true if the client is connected to the service.

public abstract boolean isConnecting ()

Checks if the client is attempting to connect to the service.

Returns
  • true if the client is attempting to connect to the service.

public abstract boolean isConnectionCallbacksRegistered (GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks listener)

Returns true if the specified listener is currently registered to receive connection events.

Parameters
listener The listener to check for.
Returns
  • true if the specified listener is currently registered to receive connection events.

public abstract boolean isConnectionFailedListenerRegistered (GooglePlayServicesClient.OnConnectionFailedListener listener)

Returns true if the specified listener is currently registered to receive connection failed events.

Parameters
listener The listener to check for.
Returns
  • true if the specified listener is currently registered to receive connection failed events.

public abstract void registerConnectionCallbacks (GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks listener)

Registers a listener to receive connection events from this GooglePlayServicesClient. If the service is already connected, the listener's onConnected(Bundle) method will be called immediately. Applications should balance calls to this method with calls to unregisterConnectionCallbacks(ConnectionCallbacks) to avoid leaking resources.

If the specified listener is already registered to receive connection events, this method will not add a duplicate entry for the same listener, but will still call the listener's onConnected(Bundle) method if currently connected.

Note that the order of messages received here may not be stable, so clients should not rely on the order that multiple listeners receive events in.

Parameters
listener the listener where the results of the asynchronous connect() call are delivered.

public abstract void registerConnectionFailedListener (GooglePlayServicesClient.OnConnectionFailedListener listener)

Registers a listener to receive connection failed events from this GooglePlayServicesClient. Unlike registerConnectionCallbacks(GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks), if the service is not already connected, the listener's onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult) method will not be called immediately. Applications should balance calls to this method with calls to unregisterConnectionFailedListener(OnConnectionFailedListener) to avoid leaking resources.

If the specified listener is already registered to receive connection failed events, this method will not add a duplicate entry for the same listener.

Note that the order of messages received here may not be stable, so clients should not rely on the order that multiple listeners receive events in.

Parameters
listener the listener where the results of the asynchronous connect() call are delivered.

public abstract void unregisterConnectionCallbacks (GooglePlayServicesClient.ConnectionCallbacks listener)

Removes a connection listener from this GooglePlayServicesClient. Note that removing a listener does not generate any callbacks.

If the specified listener is not currently registered to receive connection events, this method will have no effect.

Parameters
listener the listener to unregister.

public abstract void unregisterConnectionFailedListener (GooglePlayServicesClient.OnConnectionFailedListener listener)

Removes a connection failed listener from the GooglePlayServicesClient. Note that removing a listener does not generate any callbacks.

If the specified listener is not currently registered to receive connection failed events, this method will have no effect.

Parameters
listener the listener to unregister.
