public class DetailsSupportFragmentBackgroundController
extends Object


Controller for DetailsSupportFragment parallax background and embedded video play.

The parallax background drawable is made of two parts: cover drawable (by default FitWidthBitmapDrawable) above the details overview row and bottom drawable (by default ColorDrawable) below the details overview row. While vertically scrolling rows, the size of cover drawable and bottom drawable will be updated and the cover drawable will by default perform a parallax shift using PROPERTY_VERTICAL_OFFSET.

        *      Cover Drawable     *
        * (FitWidthBitmapDrawable)*
        *                         *
        *    DetailsOverviewRow   *
        *                         *
        *     Bottom Drawable     *
        *      (ColorDrawable)    *
        *         Related         *
        *         Content         *
Both parallax background drawable and embedded video play are optional. App must call enableParallax() and/or setupVideoPlayback(PlaybackGlue) explicitly. The PlaybackGlue is automatically play() when fragment starts and pause() when fragment stops. When video is ready to play, cover drawable will be faded out. Example:
 DetailsSupportFragmentBackgroundController mController = new DetailsSupportFragmentBackgroundController(this);

 public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstance) {
     MediaPlayerGlue player = new MediaPlayerGlue(..);

 static class MyLoadBitmapTask extends ... {
     WeakReference mFragmentRef;
     MyLoadBitmapTask(MyFragment fragment) {
         mFragmentRef = new WeakReference(fragment);
     protected void onPostExecute(Bitmap bitmap) {
         MyFragment fragment = mFragmentRef.get();
         if (fragment != null) {

 public void onStart() {
     new MyLoadBitmapTask(this).execute(url);

 public void onStop() {

To customize cover drawable and/or bottom drawable, app should call enableParallax(Drawable, Drawable, ParallaxTarget.PropertyValuesHolderTarget). If app supplies a custom cover Drawable, it should not call setCoverBitmap(Bitmap). If app supplies a custom bottom Drawable, it should not call setSolidColor(int).

To customize playback fragment, app should override onCreateVideoSupportFragment() and onCreateGlueHost().
