RepeatOnLifecycleKt

public final class RepeatOnLifecycleKt


Summary

Public methods

static final void

Runs the given block in a new coroutine when thisLifecycle is at least at state and suspends the execution until thisLifecycle is Lifecycle.State.DESTROYED.

static final void

LifecycleOwner's extension function for Lifecycle.repeatOnLifecycle to allow an easier call to the API from LifecycleOwners such as Activities and Fragments.

Public methods

RepeatOnLifecycleKt.repeatOnLifecycle

@NonNull
public static final void RepeatOnLifecycleKt.repeatOnLifecycle(
    @NonNull Lifecycle receiver,
    @NonNull Lifecycle.State state,
    @NonNull SuspendFunction1<@NonNull CoroutineScopeUnit> block
)

Runs the given block in a new coroutine when thisLifecycle is at least at state and suspends the execution until thisLifecycle is Lifecycle.State.DESTROYED.

The block will cancel and re-launch as the lifecycle moves in and out of the target state.

class MyActivity : AppCompatActivity() {
override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
/* ... */
// Runs the block of code in a coroutine when the lifecycle is at least STARTED.
// The coroutine will be cancelled when the ON_STOP event happens and will
// restart executing if the lifecycle receives the ON_START event again.
lifecycleScope.launch {
lifecycle.repeatOnLifecycle(Lifecycle.State.STARTED) {
uiStateFlow.collect { uiState ->
updateUi(uiState)
}
}
}
}
}

The best practice is to call this function when the lifecycle is initialized. For example, onCreate in an Activity, or onViewCreated in a Fragment. Otherwise, multiple repeating coroutines doing the same could be created and be executed at the same time.

Repeated invocations of block will run serially, that is they will always wait for the previous invocation to fully finish before re-starting execution as the state moves in and out of the required state.

Warning: Lifecycle.State.INITIALIZED is not allowed in this API. Passing it as a parameter will throw an IllegalArgumentException.

Parameters
@NonNull Lifecycle.State state

Lifecycle.State in which block runs in a new coroutine. That coroutine will cancel if the lifecycle falls below that state, and will restart if it's in that state again.

@NonNull SuspendFunction1<@NonNull CoroutineScopeUnit> block

The block to run when the lifecycle is at least in state state.
