boolean isChecked()

Returns the checked state.

void setChecked(boolean checked)

Sets the checked state and saves it to the SharedPreferences.

void setDisableDependentsState(boolean disableDependentsState)

Sets whether dependents are disabled when this preference is on (true) or when this preference is off (false).

void setSummaryOff(CharSequence summary)

Sets the summary to be shown when unchecked.

void setSummaryOff(int summaryResId)
void setSummaryOn(int summaryResId)
void setSummaryOn(CharSequence summary)

Sets the summary to be shown when checked.

boolean shouldDisableDependents()

Checks whether this preference's dependents should currently be disabled.

Protected methods

void onClick()

Object onGetDefaultValue(TypedArray a, int index)

Called when a Preference is being inflated and the default value attribute needs to be read.

void onRestoreInstanceState(Parcelable state)

Hook allowing a Preference to re-apply a representation of its internal state that had previously been generated by onSaveInstanceState().

Public methods

getDisableDependentsState

Added in API level 1
boolean getDisableDependentsState ()

Returns whether dependents are disabled when this preference is on (true) or when this preference is off (false).

Returns
boolean Whether dependents are disabled when this preference is on (true) or when this preference is off (false).

getSummaryOff

Added in API level 1
CharSequence getSummaryOff ()

Returns the summary to be shown when unchecked.

Returns
CharSequence The summary.

getSummaryOn

Added in API level 1
CharSequence getSummaryOn ()

Returns the summary to be shown when checked.

Returns
CharSequence The summary.

isChecked

Added in API level 1
boolean isChecked ()

Returns the checked state.

Returns
boolean The checked state.

setChecked

Added in API level 1
void setChecked (boolean checked)

Sets the checked state and saves it to the SharedPreferences.

Parameters
checked boolean: The checked state.

setDisableDependentsState

Added in API level 1
void setDisableDependentsState (boolean disableDependentsState)

Sets whether dependents are disabled when this preference is on (true) or when this preference is off (false).

Parameters
disableDependentsState boolean: The preference state that should disable dependents.

setSummaryOff

Added in API level 1
void setSummaryOff (CharSequence summary)

Sets the summary to be shown when unchecked.

Parameters
summary CharSequence: The summary to be shown when unchecked.

setSummaryOff

Added in API level 1
void setSummaryOff (int summaryResId)

Parameters
summaryResId int: The summary as a resource.

See also:

setSummaryOn

Added in API level 1
void setSummaryOn (int summaryResId)

Parameters
summaryResId int: The summary as a resource.

See also:

setSummaryOn

Added in API level 1
void setSummaryOn (CharSequence summary)

Sets the summary to be shown when checked.

Parameters
summary CharSequence: The summary to be shown when checked.

shouldDisableDependents

Added in API level 1
boolean shouldDisableDependents ()

Checks whether this preference's dependents should currently be disabled.

Returns
boolean True if the dependents should be disabled, otherwise false.

Protected methods

onClick

Added in API level 1
void onClick ()

Processes a click on the preference. This includes saving the value to the SharedPreferences. However, the overridden method should call callChangeListener(Object) to make sure the client wants to update the preference's state with the new value.

onGetDefaultValue

Added in API level 1
Object onGetDefaultValue (TypedArray a, 
                int index)

Called when a Preference is being inflated and the default value attribute needs to be read. Since different Preference types have different value types, the subclass should get and return the default value which will be its value type.

For example, if the value type is String, the body of the method would proxy to getString(int).

Parameters
a TypedArray: The set of attributes.
index int: The index of the default value attribute.
Returns
Object The default value of this preference type.

onRestoreInstanceState

Added in API level 1
void onRestoreInstanceState (Parcelable state)

Hook allowing a Preference to re-apply a representation of its internal state that had previously been generated by onSaveInstanceState(). This function will never be called with a null state.

Parameters
state Parcelable: The saved state that had previously been returned by onSaveInstanceState().

onSaveInstanceState

Added in API level 1
Parcelable onSaveInstanceState ()

Hook allowing a Preference to generate a representation of its internal state that can later be used to create a new instance with that same state. This state should only contain information that is not persistent or can be reconstructed later.

Returns
Parcelable A Parcelable object containing the current dynamic state of this Preference, or null if there is nothing interesting to save. The default implementation returns null.

onSetInitialValue

Added in API level 1
void onSetInitialValue (boolean restoreValue, 
                Object defaultValue)

Implement this to set the initial value of the Preference.

If restorePersistedValue is true, you should restore the Preference value from the SharedPreferences. If restorePersistedValue is false, you should set the Preference value to defaultValue that is given (and possibly store to SharedPreferences if shouldPersist() is true).

This may not always be called. One example is if it should not persist but there is no default value given.

Parameters
restoreValue boolean: True to restore the persisted value; false to use the given defaultValue.
defaultValue Object: The default value for this Preference. Only use this if restorePersistedValue is false.
