open class CoordinatorLayout : ViewGroup, NestedScrollingParent2, NestedScrollingParent3
   ↳ android.view.View
   ↳ android.view.ViewGroup
   ↳ androidx.coordinatorlayout.widget.CoordinatorLayout

CoordinatorLayout is a super-powered FrameLayout.

CoordinatorLayout is intended for two primary use cases:

  1. As a top-level application decor or chrome layout
  2. As a container for a specific interaction with one or more child views

By specifying Behaviors for child views of a CoordinatorLayout you can provide many different interactions within a single parent and those views can also interact with one another. View classes can specify a default behavior when used as a child of a CoordinatorLayout using the DefaultBehavior annotation.

Behaviors may be used to implement a variety of interactions and additional layout modifications ranging from sliding drawers and panels to swipe-dismissable elements and buttons that stick to other elements as they move and animate.

Children of a CoordinatorLayout may have an anchor. This view id must correspond to an arbitrary descendant of the CoordinatorLayout, but it may not be the anchored child itself or a descendant of the anchored child. This can be used to place floating views relative to other arbitrary content panes.

Children can specify LayoutParams#insetEdge to describe how the view insets the CoordinatorLayout. Any child views which are set to dodge the same inset edges by LayoutParams#dodgeInsetEdges will be moved appropriately so that the views do not overlap.
