NotificationCompat.CarExtender

public static final class NotificationCompat.CarExtender
extends Object implements NotificationCompat.Extender

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.support.v4.app.NotificationCompat.CarExtender


Helper class to add Android Auto extensions to notifications. To create a notification with car extensions:

  1. Create an NotificationCompat.Builder, setting any desired properties.
  2. Create a NotificationCompat.CarExtender.
  3. Set car-specific properties using the add and set methods of NotificationCompat.CarExtender.
  4. Call extend(NotificationCompat.Extender) to apply the extensions to a notification.
  5. Post the notification to the notification system with the NotificationManagerCompat.notify(...) methods and not the NotificationManager.notify(...) methods.
 Notification notification = new NotificationCompat.Builder(context)
         ...
         .extend(new CarExtender()
                 .set*(...))
         .build();
 

Car extensions can be accessed on an existing notification by using the CarExtender(Notification) constructor, and then using the get methods to access values.
