SystemUiHelperFri, Aug 29, 10:35 AM
Here’s something Roman Nurik and I wrote to help with dealing with Android System UI visibility across the different API levels.
It allows you to provide a level specifying how the System UI’s visibility should be changed:
LEVEL_IMMERSIVE. Each one is pretty self explanatory.
To use the helper:
SystemUiHelper helper = new SystemUiHelper( activity, LEVEL_LEAN_BACK, // Choose from one of the levels additionalFlags); // There are additional flags, usually this will be 0 // Show the system ui helper.show() // Hide the system ui helper.hide() // Delay the hide for 2 seconds helper.delayHide(2000);
You can find the code at this gist: https://gist.github.com/chrisbanes/73de18faffca571f7292
