Observable

public interface Observable

android.databinding.Observable
Known Indirect Subclasses


Observable classes provide a way in which data bound UI can be notified of changes. ObservableList and ObservableMap also provide the ability to notify when changes occur. ObservableField, ObservableParcelable, ObservableBoolean, ObservableByte, ObservableShort, ObservableInt, ObservableLong, ObservableFloat, and ObservableDouble provide a means by which properties may be notified without implementing Observable.

An Observable object should notify the Observable.OnPropertyChangedCallback whenever an observed property of the class changes.

The getter for an observable property should be annotated with Bindable.

Convenience class BaseObservable implements this interface and PropertyChangeRegistry can help classes that don't extend BaseObservable to implement the listener registry.

Public methods

abstract void addOnPropertyChangedCallback(Observable.OnPropertyChangedCallback callback)

Adds a callback to listen for changes to the Observable.

abstract void removeOnPropertyChangedCallback(Observable.OnPropertyChangedCallback callback)

Removes a callback from those listening for changes.
