Teaches Android developers how to program with the Fragments API, and build apps that work well on Android phones, tablets, and even desktop computers.
- [Voiceover] My name is David Gassner and this is Building Adaptive Android Apps with Fragments. This course is for Android developers who want to build apps that can adapt themselves to screens with different dimensions and pixel densities. Working in the new Android Studio, I'll first introduce you to the Fragments API. I'll describe how to define a fragment's layout and how to add it to an activity with XML or Java. I'll then show you how to define multiple layouts for different screens, how to use resource aliases to select layouts at run time, and how to pass data back and forth between activities and fragments with arguments and callback methods.
I'll also describe the support library to make fragments work on older versions of Android and show you how to manage shared preference screens and dialogues with fragments. The Fragments API is an important part of any Android developers toolkit. I hope this course helps you get started building apps that look great on a wide variety of devices.
