Public methods

public static final boolean navigateUp(NavController navController, Openable openableLayout)

Handles the Up button by delegating its behavior to the given NavController. This should generally be called from AppCompatActivity.onSupportNavigateUp.

If you do not have a Openable layout, you should call NavController.navigateUp directly.

Parameters
NavController navController

The NavController that hosts your content.

Openable openableLayout

The Openable layout that should be opened if you are on the topmost level of the app.

Returns
boolean

True if the NavController was able to navigate up.

public static final boolean navigateUp(
    NavController navController,
    AppBarConfiguration configuration
)

Handles the Up button by delegating its behavior to the given NavController. This is an alternative to using NavController.navigateUp directly when the given AppBarConfiguration needs to be considered when determining what should happen when the Up button is pressed.

In cases where no Up action is available, the AppBarConfiguration.fallbackOnNavigateUpListener will be called to provide additional control.

Parameters
NavController navController

The NavController that hosts your content.

AppBarConfiguration configuration

Additional configuration options for determining what should happen when the Up button is pressed.

Returns
boolean

True if the NavController was able to navigate up.

onNavDestinationSelected

public static final boolean onNavDestinationSelected(MenuItem item, NavController navController)

Attempt to navigate to the NavDestination associated with the given MenuItem. This MenuItem should have been added via one of the helper methods in this class.

Importantly, it assumes the menu item id matches a valid action id or destination id to be navigated to.

By default, the back stack will be popped back to the navigation graph's start destination. Menu items that have android:menuCategory="secondary" will not pop the back stack.

Parameters
MenuItem item

The selected MenuItem.

NavController navController

The NavController that hosts the destination.

Returns
boolean

True if the NavController was able to navigate to the destination associated with the given MenuItem.

onNavDestinationSelected

@NavigationUiSaveStateControl
public static final boolean onNavDestinationSelected(
    MenuItem item,
    NavController navController,
    boolean saveState
)

Attempt to navigate to the NavDestination associated with the given MenuItem. This MenuItem should have been added via one of the helper methods in this class.

Importantly, it assumes the menu item id matches a valid action id or destination id to be navigated to.

By default, the back stack will be popped back to the navigation graph's start destination. Menu items that have android:menuCategory="secondary" will not pop the back stack.

Parameters
MenuItem item

The selected MenuItem.

NavController navController

The NavController that hosts the destination.

boolean saveState

Whether the NavController should save the back stack state. This must always be false: leave this parameter off entirely to use the non-experimental version of this API, which saves the state by default.

Returns
boolean

True if the NavController was able to navigate to the destination associated with the given MenuItem.

setupActionBarWithNavController

public static final void setupActionBarWithNavController(
    AppCompatActivity activity,
    NavController navController,
    Openable openableLayout
)

Sets up the ActionBar returned by AppCompatActivity.getSupportActionBar for use with a NavController.

By calling this method, the title in the action bar will automatically be updated when the destination changes (assuming there is a valid label).

The start destination of your navigation graph is considered the only top level destination. On the start destination of your navigation graph, the ActionBar will show the drawer icon if the given Openable layout is non null. On all other destinations, the ActionBar will show the Up button. Call navigateUp to handle the Up button.

Destinations that implement androidx.navigation.FloatingWindow will be ignored.

Parameters
AppCompatActivity activity

The activity hosting the action bar that should be kept in sync with changes to the NavController.

NavController navController

The NavController whose navigation actions will be reflected in the title of the action bar.
