getName

Added in API level 16
CharSequence getName (Context context)

Return the properly localized/resource user-visible name of this route.

The route name identifies the destination represented by the route. It may be a user-supplied name, an alias, or device serial number.

Parameters

Returns
CharSequence The user-visible name of a media route. This is the string presented to users who may select this as the active route.

getName

Added in API level 16
CharSequence getName ()

Gets the user-visible name of the route.

getPlaybackStream

Added in API level 16
int getPlaybackStream ()

Returns

See also:

getPresentationDisplay

Added in API level 17
Display getPresentationDisplay ()

Gets the Display that should be used by the application to show a Presentation on an external display when this route is selected. Depending on the route, this may only be valid if the route is currently selected.

The preferred presentation display may change independently of the route being selected or unselected. For example, the presentation display of the default system route may change when an external HDMI display is connected or disconnected even though the route itself has not changed.

This method may return null if there is no external display associated with the route or if the display is not ready to show UI yet.

The application should listen for changes to the presentation display using the onRoutePresentationDisplayChanged(MediaRouter, MediaRouter.RouteInfo) callback and show or dismiss its Presentation accordingly when the display becomes available or is removed.

This method only makes sense for live video routes.

Returns
Display The preferred presentation display to use when this route is selected or null if none.
