ShadowOverlayHelper

public final class ShadowOverlayHelper
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.support.v17.leanback.widget.ShadowOverlayHelper


ShadowOverlayHelper is a helper class for shadow, overlay color and rounded corner. There are many choices to implement Shadow, overlay color. Initialize it with ShadowOverlayHelper.Builder and it decides the best strategy based on options user choose and current platform version.

  • For shadow: it may use 9-patch with opticalBounds or Z-value based shadow for API >= 21. When 9-patch is used, it requires a ShadowOverlayContainer to include 9-patch views.
  • For overlay: it may use ShadowOverlayContainer which overrides draw() or it may use setForeground(new ColorDrawable()) for API>=23. The foreground support might be disabled if rounded corner is applied due to performance reason.
  • For rounded-corner: it uses a ViewOutlineProvider for API>=21. There are two different strategies: use Wrapper with a ShadowOverlayContainer; or apply rounded corner, overlay and rounded-corner to the view itself. Below is an example of how helper is used. ShadowOverlayHelper mHelper = new ShadowOverlayHelper.Builder(). .needsOverlay(true).needsRoundedCorner(true).needsShadow(true) .build(); mHelper.prepareParentForShadow(parentView); // apply optical-bounds for 9-patch shadow. mHelper.setOverlayColor(view, Color.argb(0x80, 0x80, 0x80, 0x80)); mHelper.setShadowFocusLevel(view, 1.0f); ... View initializeView(View view) { if (mHelper.needsWrapper()) { ShadowOverlayContainer wrapper = mHelper.createShadowOverlayContainer(context); wrapper.wrap(view); return wrapper; } else { mHelper.onViewCreated(view); return view; } } ...
