VirtualDisplay

public final class VirtualDisplay
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.hardware.display.VirtualDisplay


Represents a virtual display. The content of a virtual display is rendered to a Surface that you must provide to createVirtualDisplay().

Because a virtual display renders to a surface provided by the application, it will be released automatically when the process terminates and all remaining windows on it will be forcibly removed. However, you should also explicitly call release() when you're done with it.

class VirtualDisplay.Callback

Interface for receiving information about a VirtualDisplay's state changes. 

Public methods

Display getDisplay()

Gets the virtual display.

Surface getSurface()

Gets the surface that backs the virtual display.

void release()

Releases the virtual display and destroys its underlying surface.

void resize(int width, int height, int densityDpi)

Asks the virtual display to resize.

void setSurface(Surface surface)

Sets the surface that backs the virtual display.

String toString()

Inherited methods

From class java.lang.Object

Public methods

getDisplay

Added in API level 19
Display getDisplay ()

Returns
Display

getSurface

Added in API level 20
Surface getSurface ()

Gets the surface that backs the virtual display.

Returns
Surface

release

Added in API level 19
void release ()

Releases the virtual display and destroys its underlying surface.

All remaining windows on the virtual display will be forcibly removed as part of releasing the virtual display.

resize

Added in API level 21
void resize (int width, 
                int height, 
                int densityDpi)

Asks the virtual display to resize.

This is really just a convenience to allow applications using virtual displays to adapt to changing conditions without having to tear down and recreate the display.

Parameters
width int
height int
densityDpi int

setSurface

Added in API level 20
void setSurface (Surface surface)

Sets the surface that backs the virtual display.

Detaching the surface that backs a virtual display has a similar effect to turning off the screen.

It is still the caller's responsibility to destroy the surface after it has been detached.

Parameters
surface Surface: The surface to set, or null to detach the surface from the virtual display.

toString

Added in API level 19
String toString ()

Returns a string containing a concise, human-readable description of this object. Subclasses are encouraged to override this method and provide an implementation that takes into account the object's type and data. The default implementation is equivalent to the following expression:

   getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())

See Writing a useful toString method if you intend implementing your own toString method.

Returns
String a printable representation of this object.
