CREATOR

added in API level 3
public static final Creator<InputBinding> CREATOR

Used to make this class parcelable.

Public constructors

InputBinding

added in API level 3
public InputBinding (InputConnection conn, 
                IBinder connToken, 
                int uid, 
                int pid)

Constructor.

Parameters
conn InputConnection: The interface for communicating back with the application.

connToken IBinder: A remoteable token for communicating across processes.

uid int: The user id of the client of this binding.

pid int: The process id of where the binding came from.

InputBinding

added in API level 3
public InputBinding (InputConnection conn, 
                InputBinding binding)

Constructor from an existing InputBinding taking a new local input connection interface.

Parameters
conn InputConnection: The new connection interface.

binding InputBinding: Existing binding to copy.

Public methods

describeContents

added in API level 3
public int describeContents ()

Describe the kinds of special objects contained in this Parcelable instance's marshaled representation. For example, if the object will include a file descriptor in the output of writeToParcel(Parcel, int), the return value of this method must include the CONTENTS_FILE_DESCRIPTOR bit.

Returns
int a bitmask indicating the set of special object types marshaled by this Parcelable object instance.

getConnection

added in API level 3
public InputConnection getConnection ()

Return the connection for interacting back with the application.

Returns
InputConnection

getConnectionToken

added in API level 3
public IBinder getConnectionToken ()

Return the token for the connection back to the application. You can not use this directly, it must be converted to a InputConnection for you.

Returns
IBinder

getPid

added in API level 3
public int getPid ()

Return the process id where this binding came from.

Returns
int

getUid

added in API level 3
public int getUid ()

Return the user id of the client associated with this binding.

Returns
int

toString

added in API level 3
public String toString ()

Returns a string representation of the object. In general, the toString method returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.

The toString method for class Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:

 getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
 

Returns
String a string representation of the object.

writeToParcel

added in API level 3
public void writeToParcel (Parcel dest, 
                int flags)

Used to package this object into a Parcel.

Parameters
dest Parcel: The Parcel to be written.

flags int: The flags used for parceling.
