Public methods

refreshVersionsAsync

open fun refreshVersionsAsync(): Unit

Enqueues a task to refresh the list of updated tables.

This method is automatically called when RoomDatabase#endTransaction() is called but if you have another connection to the database or directly use , you may need to call this manually.

addObserver

open fun addObserver(observer: InvalidationTracker.Observer): Unit

Adds the given observer to the observers list and it will be notified if any table it observes changes.

Database changes are pulled on another thread so in some race conditions, the observer might be invoked for changes that were done before it is added.

If the observer already exists, this is a no-op call.

If one of the tables in the Observer does not exist in the database, this method throws an IllegalArgumentException.

Parameters
observer InvalidationTracker.Observer: The observer which listens the database for changes.

removeObserver

open fun removeObserver(observer: InvalidationTracker.Observer): Unit

Removes the observer from the observers list.

Parameters
observer InvalidationTracker.Observer: The observer to remove.
