Class FlutterView

    • Method Detail

      • hasRenderedFirstFrame

        public boolean hasRenderedFirstFrame()
        Returns true if an attached FlutterEngine has rendered at least 1 frame to this FlutterView.

        Returns false if no FlutterEngine is attached.

        This flag is specific to a given FlutterEngine. The following hypothetical timeline demonstrates how this flag changes over time.

        1. flutterEngineA is attached to this FlutterView: returns false
        2. flutterEngineA renders its first frame to this FlutterView: returns true
        3. flutterEngineA is detached from this FlutterView: returns false
        4. flutterEngineB is attached to this FlutterView: returns false
        5. flutterEngineB renders its first frame to this FlutterView: returns true
      • addOnFirstFrameRenderedListener

        public void addOnFirstFrameRenderedListener​(@NonNull
                                                    FlutterUiDisplayListener listener)
        Adds the given listener to this FlutterView, to be notified upon Flutter's first rendered frame.
      • onConfigurationChanged

        protected void onConfigurationChanged​(@NonNull
                                              Configuration newConfig)
        Sends relevant configuration data from Android to Flutter when the Android Configuration changes.

        The Android Configuration might change as a result of device orientation change, device language change, device text scale factor change, etc.

      • onSizeChanged

        protected void onSizeChanged​(int width,
                                     int height,
                                     int oldWidth,
                                     int oldHeight)
        Invoked when this FlutterView changes size, including upon initial measure.

        The initial measure reports an oldWidth and oldHeight of zero.

        Flutter cares about the width and height of the view that displays it on the host platform. Therefore, when this method is invoked, the new width and height are communicated to Flutter as the "physical size" of the view that displays Flutter's UI.

      • onAttachedToWindow

        protected void onAttachedToWindow()
        Invoked when this is attached to the window.

        We register for WindowInfoTracker updates.

      • onDetachedFromWindow

        protected void onDetachedFromWindow()
        Invoked when this is detached from the window.

        We unregister from WindowInfoTracker updates.

      • setWindowInfoListenerDisplayFeatures

        protected void setWindowInfoListenerDisplayFeatures​(androidx.window.layout.WindowLayoutInfo layoutInfo)
        Refresh WindowInfoTracker and DisplayCutout display features. Fold, hinge and cutout areas are populated here.
      • onApplyWindowInsets

        public final WindowInsets onApplyWindowInsets​(@NonNull
                                                      WindowInsets insets)
        Invoked when Android's desired window insets change, i.e., padding.

        Flutter does not use a standard View hierarchy and therefore Flutter is unaware of these insets. Therefore, this method calculates the viewport metrics that Flutter should use and then sends those metrics to Flutter.

        This callback is not present in API < 20, which means lower API devices will see the wider than expected padding when the status and navigation bars are hidden.

      • fitSystemWindows

        protected boolean fitSystemWindows​(@NonNull
                                           Rect insets)
        Invoked when Android's desired window insets change, i.e., padding.

        fitSystemWindows is an earlier version of onApplyWindowInsets(WindowInsets). See that method for more details about how window insets relate to Flutter.

      • onCreateInputConnection

        public InputConnection onCreateInputConnection​(@NonNull
                                                       EditorInfo outAttrs)
        Creates an InputConnection to work with a InputMethodManager.

        Any View that can take focus or process text input must implement this method by returning a non-null InputConnection. Flutter may render one or many focusable and text-input widgets, therefore FlutterView must support an InputConnection.

        The InputConnection returned from this method comes from a TextInputPlugin, which is owned by this FlutterView. A TextInputPlugin exists to encapsulate the nuances of input communication, rather than spread that logic throughout this FlutterView.

        onCreateInputConnection in class View
      • checkInputConnectionProxy

        public boolean checkInputConnectionProxy​(View view)
        Allows a View that is not currently the input connection target to invoke commands on the InputMethodManager, which is otherwise disallowed.

        Returns true to allow non-input-connection-targets to invoke methods on InputMethodManager, or false to exclusively allow the input connection target to invoke such methods.

      • dispatchKeyEvent

        public boolean dispatchKeyEvent​(@NonNull
                                        KeyEvent event)
        Invoked when a hardware key is pressed or released.

        This method is typically invoked in response to the press of a physical keyboard key or a D-pad button. It is generally not invoked when a virtual software keyboard is used, though a software keyboard may choose to invoke this method in some situations.

        KeyEvents are sent from Android to Flutter. KeyboardManager may do some additional work with the given KeyEvent, e.g., combine this keyCode with the previous keyCode to generate a unicode combined character.

      • onTouchEvent

        public boolean onTouchEvent​(@NonNull
                                    MotionEvent event)
        Invoked by Android when a user touch event occurs.

        Flutter handles all of its own gesture detection and processing, therefore this method forwards all MotionEvent data from Android to Flutter.

      • onGenericMotionEvent

        public boolean onGenericMotionEvent​(@NonNull
                                            MotionEvent event)
        Invoked by Android when a generic motion event occurs, e.g., joystick movement, mouse hover, track pad touches, scroll wheel movements, etc.

        Flutter handles all of its own gesture detection and processing, therefore this method forwards all MotionEvent data from Android to Flutter.

      • onHoverEvent

        public boolean onHoverEvent​(@NonNull
                                    MotionEvent event)
        Invoked by Android when a hover-compliant input system causes a hover event.

        An example of hover events is a stylus sitting near an Android screen. As the stylus moves from outside a View to hover over a View, or move around within a View, or moves from over a View to outside a View, a corresponding MotionEvent is reported via this method.

        Hover events can be used for accessibility touch exploration and therefore are processed here for accessibility purposes.

      • findViewByAccessibilityIdTraversal

        public View findViewByAccessibilityIdTraversal​(int accessibilityId)
        Prior to Android Q, it's impossible to add real views as descendants of virtual nodes. This breaks accessibility when an Android view is embedded in a Flutter app.

        This method overrides a hidden method in ViewGroup to workaround this limitation. This solution is derivated from Jetpack Compose, and can be found in the Android source code as well.

        This workaround finds the descendant View that matches the provided accessibility id.

        accessibilityId - The view accessibility id.
        The view matching the accessibility id if any.
      • getSystemPointerIcon

        public PointerIcon getSystemPointerIcon​(int type)
        Description copied from interface: io.flutter.plugin.mouse.MouseCursorPlugin.MouseCursorViewDelegate
        Gets a system pointer icon object for the given type.

        If typeis not recognized, returns the default pointer icon.

        This is typically implemented by calling PointerIcon.getSystemIcon(android.content.Context, int) with the context associated with this view.

        Specified by:
        getSystemPointerIcon in interface io.flutter.plugin.mouse.MouseCursorPlugin.MouseCursorViewDelegate
      • attachToFlutterEngine

        public void attachToFlutterEngine​(@NonNull
                                          FlutterEngine flutterEngine)
        Connects this FlutterView to the given FlutterEngine.

        This FlutterView will begin rendering the UI painted by the given FlutterEngine. This FlutterView will also begin forwarding interaction events from this FlutterView to the given FlutterEngine, e.g., user touch events, accessibility events, keyboard events, and others.

        See detachFromFlutterEngine() for information on how to detach from a FlutterEngine.

      • detachFromFlutterEngine

        public void detachFromFlutterEngine()
        Disconnects this FlutterView from a previously attached FlutterEngine.

        This FlutterView will clear its UI and stop forwarding all events to the previously-attached FlutterEngine. This includes touch events, accessibility events, keyboard events, and others.

        See attachToFlutterEngine(FlutterEngine) for information on how to attach a FlutterEngine.

      • convertToImageView

        public void convertToImageView()
        Converts the current render surface to a FlutterImageView if it's not one already. Otherwise, it resizes the FlutterImageView based on the current view size.
      • revertImageView

        public void revertImageView​(@NonNull
                                    Runnable onDone)
        If the surface is rendered by a FlutterImageView, then calling this method will stop rendering to a FlutterImageView, and render on the previous surface instead.
        onDone - a callback called when Flutter UI is rendered on the previous surface. Use this callback to perform cleanups. For example, destroy overlay surfaces.
      • attachOverlaySurfaceToRender

        public void attachOverlaySurfaceToRender​(@NonNull
                                                 FlutterImageView view)
      • acquireLatestImageViewFrame

        public boolean acquireLatestImageViewFrame()
      • isAttachedToFlutterEngine

        public boolean isAttachedToFlutterEngine()
        Returns true if this FlutterView is currently attached to a FlutterEngine.
      • getAttachedFlutterEngine

        public FlutterEngine getAttachedFlutterEngine()
        Returns the FlutterEngine to which this FlutterView is currently attached, or null if this FlutterView is not currently attached to a FlutterEngine.
      • setVisibility

        public void setVisibility​(int visibility)
