androidx.slidingpanelayout:slidingpanelayout:1.2.0-alpha02 is released. Version 1.2.0-alpha02 contains these commits.

Bug Fixes

  • SlidingPaneLayout now takes into account folding features that have a non-zero width. (847cc2)
  • SlidingPaneLayout now expands the drag edge size when gesture navigation is enabled, mirroring the behavior of DrawerLayout. (2c6d24)
  • The open and closed state of SlidingPaneLayout is now preserved even if it is changed when the device is non-slidable (i.e., when both panes are shown side by side), thus ensuring that users will continue to see the detail screen when they rotate their device or otherwise switch to a smaller display. (b15eda)
  • Fix lock mode behavior (Ic01dc)

External Contributions

  • Thanks Cesar Valiente for fixing SlidingPaneLayout to now take into account folding features that have a non-zero width. (847cc2)

Version 1.2.0-alpha01

March 24, 2021

androidx.slidingpanelayout:slidingpanelayout:1.2.0-alpha01 is released. Version 1.2.0-alpha01 contains these commits.

New Features

  • SlidingPaneLayout is now fold-aware. On a foldable device, SlidingPaneLayout will automatically adjust the size of the two panes so that the panes are on either side of the fold, hinge, etc.

Behavior Changes

  • SlidingPaneLayout now has a new UI styling when the two panes overlap. Each pane will now extend from edge to edge, with the detail or secondary pane fully covering the list or primary pane when the SlidingPaneLayout is open. APIs specific to the old UI styling, such as the fade color, have been deprecated. (Ia60ce)
  • SlidingPaneLayout now defaults to ‘closed’ - i.e., showing the list or primary pane. Calling open() or openPane() will now show the detail or secondary pane. (I5d26c)

API Changes

  • SlidingPaneLayout now allows registering multiple PanelSlideListeners. (I50ce2)
  • Developers can now control whether users can swipe between the list and detail panes by setting a lock mode. (Idf2fd, I5d26c)
