ShadowOverlayContainer

public class ShadowOverlayContainer
extends FrameLayout

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.view.View
     ↳ android.view.ViewGroup
       ↳ android.widget.FrameLayout
         ↳ android.support.v17.leanback.widget.ShadowOverlayContainer


Provides an SDK version-independent wrapper to support shadows, color overlays, and rounded corners. It's not always preferred to create a ShadowOverlayContainer, use ShadowOverlayHelper instead.

prepareParentForShadow(ViewGroup) must be called on parent of container before using shadow. Depending on sdk version, optical bounds might be applied to parent.

If shadows can appear outside the bounds of the parent view, setClipChildren(false) must be called on the grandparent view.

initialize(boolean, boolean, boolean) must be first called on the container. Then call wrap(View) to insert the wrapped view into the container.

Call setShadowFocusLevel(float) to control the strength of the shadow (focused shadows cast stronger shadows).

Call setOverlayColor(int) to control overlay color.
