GuidedStepFragment

open class GuidedStepFragment : Fragment, FocusListener
kotlin.Any
   ↳ android.app.Fragment
   ↳ androidx.leanback.app.GuidedStepFragment

A GuidedStepFragment is used to guide the user through a decision or series of decisions. It is composed of a guidance view on the left and a view on the right containing a list of possible actions.

Basic Usage

Clients of GuidedStepFragment must create a custom subclass to attach to their Activities. This custom subclass provides the information necessary to construct the user interface and respond to user actions. At a minimum, subclasses should override:

Clients use following helper functions to add GuidedStepFragment to Activity or FragmentManager:

Theming and Stylists

GuidedStepFragment delegates its visual styling to classes called stylists. The is responsible for the left guidance view, while the is responsible for the right actions view. The stylists use theme attributes to derive values associated with the presentation, such as colors, animations, etc. Most simple visual aspects of GuidanceStylist and GuidedActionsStylist can be customized via theming; see their documentation for more information.

GuidedStepFragments must have access to an appropriate theme in order for the stylists to function properly. Specifically, the fragment must receive androidx.leanback.R.style#Theme_Leanback_GuidedStep, or a theme whose parent is is set to that theme. Themes can be provided in one of three ways:

  • The simplest way is to set the theme for the host Activity to the GuidedStep theme or a theme that derives from it.
  • If the Activity already has a theme and setting its parent theme is inconvenient, the existing Activity theme can have an entry added for the attribute androidx.leanback.R.styleable#LeanbackGuidedStepTheme_guidedStepTheme. If present, this theme will be used by GuidedStepFragment as an overlay to the Activity's theme.
  • Finally, custom subclasses of GuidedStepFragment may provide a theme through the method. This can be useful if a subclass is used across multiple Activities.

If the theme is provided in multiple ways, the onProvideTheme override has priority, followed by the Activity's theme. (Themes whose parent theme is already set to the guided step theme do not need to set the guidedStepTheme attribute; if set, it will be ignored.)

If themes do not provide enough customizability, the stylists themselves may be subclassed and provided to the GuidedStepFragment through the onCreateGuidanceStylist and methods. The stylists have simple hooks so that subclasses may override layout files; subclasses may also have more complex logic to determine styling.

Guided sequences

GuidedStepFragments can be grouped together to provide a guided sequence. GuidedStepFragments grouped as a sequence use custom animations provided by GuidanceStylist and GuidedActionsStylist (or subclasses) during transitions between steps. Clients should use add to place subsequent GuidedFragments onto the fragment stack so that custom animations are properly configured. (Custom animations are triggered automatically when the fragment stack is subsequently popped by any normal mechanism.)

Note: Currently GuidedStepFragments grouped in this way must all be defined programmatically, rather than in XML. This restriction may be removed in the future. androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedStepTheme androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedStepBackground androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedActionContentWidthWeight androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedActionContentWidthWeightTwoPanels androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedActionsBackground androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedActionsBackgroundDark androidx.leanback.R.attr#guidedActionsElevation

Constants

EXTRA_UI_STYLE

static val EXTRA_UI_STYLE: String

Fragment argument name for UI style. The argument value is persisted in fragment state and used to select fragment transition. The value is initially UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE and might be changed in one of the three helper functions:

Argument value can be either:

Value: "uiStyle"

UI_STYLE_ACTIVITY_ROOT

static val UI_STYLE_ACTIVITY_ROOT: Int

One possible value of argument EXTRA_UI_STYLE. This is the case that we show first GuidedStepFragment in a separate activity. The default behavior of this style:

  • Enter transition is assigned null (will rely on activity transition), exit transition is same as UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE. Note: Changing exit transition by UI style is not working because fragment transition asks for exit transition before UI style is restored in Fragment.onCreate().

Value: 2

UI_STYLE_DEFAULT

static val UI_STYLE_DEFAULT: Int

Deprecated: Same value as UI_STYLE_REPLACE.

Value: 0

UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE

static val UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE: Int

Default value for argument EXTRA_UI_STYLE. The default value is assigned in GuidedStepFragment constructor. This is the case that we show GuidedStepFragment on top of other content. The default behavior of this style:

  • Enter transition slides in from two sides, exit transition slide out to START(left). Background will be faded in. Note: Changing exit transition by UI style is not working because fragment transition asks for exit transition before UI style is restored in Fragment .onCreate().
When popping multiple GuidedStepFragment, finishGuidedStepFragments() also changes the top GuidedStepFragment to UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE in order to run the return transition (reverse of enter transition) of UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE.

Value: 1

UI_STYLE_REPLACE

static val UI_STYLE_REPLACE: Int

This is the case that we use GuidedStepFragment to replace another existing GuidedStepFragment when moving forward to next step. Default behavior of this style is:

  • Enter transition slides in from END(right), exit transition same as UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE.

Value: 0

    onProvideFragmentTransitions

    protected open fun onProvideFragmentTransitions(): Unit

    Called by Constructor to provide fragment transitions. The default implementation assigns transitions based on getUiStyle():

    • UI_STYLE_REPLACE Slide from/to end(right) for enter transition, slide from/to start(left) for exit transition, shared element enter transition is set to ChangeBounds.
    • UI_STYLE_ENTRANCE Enter transition is set to slide from both sides, exit transition is same as UI_STYLE_REPLACE, no shared element enter transition.
    • UI_STYLE_ACTIVITY_ROOT Enter transition is set to null and app should rely on activity transition, exit transition is same as UI_STYLE_REPLACE, no shared element enter transition.

    The default implementation heavily relies on GuidedActionsStylist and GuidanceStylist layout, app may override this method when modifying the default layout of GuidedActionsStylist or GuidanceStylist.

    TIP: because the fragment view is removed during fragment transition, in general app cannot use two Visibility transition together. Workaround is to create your own Visibility transition that controls multiple animators (e.g. slide and fade animation in one Transition class).
