Public methods


boolean onDragInitiated (MotionEvent e)

Called when a drag is initiated. Touch input handler only considers a drag to be initiated on long press on an existing selection, as normal touch and drag events are strongly associated with scrolling of the view.

Drag will only be initiated when the item under the event is already selected.

The RecyclerView item at the coordinates of the MotionEvent is not supplied as a parameter to this method as there may be multiple items selected. Clients can obtain the current list of selected items from copySelection(MutableSelection).

e MotionEvent: the event associated with the drag.

boolean true if the event was handled.
