Presentation

public class Presentation
extends Dialog

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.app.Dialog
     ↳ android.app.Presentation


Base class for presentations.

A presentation is a special kind of dialog whose purpose is to present content on a secondary display. A Presentation is associated with the target Display at creation time and configures its context and resource configuration according to the display's metrics.

Notably, the Context of a presentation is different from the context of its containing Activity. It is important to inflate the layout of a presentation and load other resources using the presentation's own context to ensure that assets of the correct size and density for the target display are loaded.

A presentation is automatically canceled (see cancel()) when the display to which it is attached is removed. An activity should take care of pausing and resuming whatever content is playing within the presentation whenever the activity itself is paused or resumed.

Choosing a presentation display

Before showing a Presentation it's important to choose the Display on which it will appear. Choosing a presentation display is sometimes difficult because there may be multiple displays attached. Rather than trying to guess which display is best, an application should let the system choose a suitable presentation display.

There are two main ways to choose a Display.

Using the media router to choose a presentation display

The easiest way to choose a presentation display is to use the MediaRouter API. The media router service keeps track of which audio and video routes are available on the system. The media router sends notifications whenever routes are selected or unselected or when the preferred presentation display of a route changes. So an application can simply watch for these notifications and show or dismiss a presentation on the preferred presentation display automatically.

The preferred presentation display is the display that the media router recommends that the application should use if it wants to show content on the secondary display. Sometimes there may not be a preferred presentation display in which case the application should show its content locally without using a presentation.

Here's how to use the media router to create and show a presentation on the preferred presentation display using getPresentationDisplay().

 MediaRouter mediaRouter = (MediaRouter) context.getSystemService(Context.MEDIA_ROUTER_SERVICE);
 MediaRouter.RouteInfo route = mediaRouter.getSelectedRoute();
 if (route != null) {
     Display presentationDisplay = route.getPresentationDisplay();
     if (presentationDisplay != null) {
         Presentation presentation = new MyPresentation(context, presentationDisplay);
         presentation.show();
     }
 }

The following sample code from ApiDemos demonstrates how to use the media router to automatically switch between showing content in the main activity and showing the content in a presentation when a presentation display is available.

/**
 * <h3>Presentation Activity</h3>
 *
 * <p>
 * This demonstrates how to create an activity that shows some content
 * on a secondary display using a {@link Presentation}.
 * </p><p>
 * The activity uses the {@link MediaRouter} API to automatically detect when
 * a presentation display is available and to allow the user to control the
 * media routes using a menu item.  When a presentation display is available,
 * we stop showing content in the main activity and instead open up a
 * {@link Presentation} on the preferred presentation display.  When a presentation
 * display is removed, we revert to showing content in the main activity.
 * We also write information about displays and display-related events to
 * the Android log which you can read using <code>adb logcat</code>.
 * </p><p>
 * You can try this out using an HDMI or Wifi display or by using the
 * "Simulate secondary displays" feature in Development Settings to create a few
 * simulated secondary displays.  Each display will appear in the list along with a
 * checkbox to show a presentation on that display.
 * </p><p>
 * See also the {@link PresentationActivity} sample which
 * uses the low-level display manager to enumerate displays and to show multiple
 * simultaneous presentations on different displays.

Using the display manager to choose a presentation display

Another way to choose a presentation display is to use the DisplayManager API directly. The display manager service provides functions to enumerate and describe all displays that are attached to the system including displays that may be used for presentations.

The display manager keeps track of all displays in the system. However, not all displays are appropriate for showing presentations. For example, if an activity attempted to show a presentation on the main display it might obscure its own content (it's like opening a dialog on top of your activity).

Here's how to identify suitable displays for showing presentations using getDisplays(String) and the DISPLAY_CATEGORY_PRESENTATION category.

 DisplayManager displayManager = (DisplayManager) context.getSystemService(Context.DISPLAY_SERVICE);
 Display[] presentationDisplays = displayManager.getDisplays(DisplayManager.DISPLAY_CATEGORY_PRESENTATION);
 if (presentationDisplays.length > 0) {
     // If there is more than one suitable presentation display, then we could consider
     // giving the user a choice.  For this example, we simply choose the first display
     // which is the one the system recommends as the preferred presentation display.
     Display display = presentationDisplays[0];
     Presentation presentation = new MyPresentation(context, presentationDisplay);
     presentation.show();
 }

The following sample code from ApiDemos demonstrates how to use the display manager to enumerate displays and show content on multiple presentation displays simultaneously.

/**
 * <h3>Presentation Activity</h3>
 *
 * <p>
 * This demonstrates how to create an activity that shows some content
 * on a secondary display using a {@link Presentation}.
 * </p><p>
 * The activity uses the {@link DisplayManager} API to enumerate displays.
 * When the user selects a display, the activity opens a {@link Presentation}
 * on that display.  We show a different photograph in each presentation
 * on a unique background along with a label describing the display.
 * We also write information about displays and display-related events to
 * the Android log which you can read using <code>adb logcat</code>.
 * </p><p>
 * You can try this out using an HDMI or Wifi display or by using the
 * "Simulate secondary displays" feature in Development Settings to create a few
 * simulated secondary displays.  Each display will appear in the list along with a
 * checkbox to show a presentation on that display.
 * </p><p>
 * See also the {@link PresentationWithMediaRouterActivity} sample which
 * uses the media router to automatically select a secondary display
 * on which to show content based on the currently selected route.
