ItemKeyedDataSource.LoadInitialCallback

public abstract class ItemKeyedDataSource.LoadInitialCallback<Value extends @Nullable Object> extends ItemKeyedDataSource.LoadCallback


Callback for loadInitial to return data and, optionally, position/count information.

A callback can be called only once, and will throw if called again.

If you can compute the number of items in the data set before and after the loaded range, call the three parameter onResult to pass that information. You can skip passing this information by calling the single parameter onResult, either if it's difficult to compute, or if LoadInitialParams.placeholdersEnabled is false, so the positioning information will be ignored.

It is always valid for a DataSource loading method that takes a callback to stash the callback and call it later. This enables DataSources to be fully asynchronous, and to handle temporary, recoverable error states (such as a network error that can be retried).

Parameters
<Value extends @Nullable Object>

Type of items being loaded.

    @NonNull List<@NonNull Value> data,
    @NonNull int position,
    @NonNull int totalCount
)

Called to pass initial load state from a DataSource.

Call this method from your DataSource's loadInitial function to return data, and inform how many placeholders should be shown before and after. If counting is cheap to compute (for example, if a network load returns the information regardless), it's recommended to pass data back through this method.

It is always valid to pass a different amount of data than what is requested. Pass an empty list if there is no more data to load.

Parameters
@NonNull List<@NonNull Value> data

List of items loaded from the DataSource. If this is empty, the DataSource is treated as empty, and no further loads will occur.

@NonNull int position

Position of the item at the front of the list. If there are N items before the items in data that can be loaded from this DataSource, pass N.

@NonNull int totalCount

Total number of items that may be returned from this DataSource. Includes the number in the initial data parameter as well as any items that can be loaded in front or behind of data.
