Elevation is a crucial concept of material design. This section talks about elevation, how it is presented and how it can be altered.
- [Instructor] As we discussed previously,…Material Design uses a 3D layout.…While this concept offers flexibility in the design,…it offers challenges as well.…Content can be placed over other content,…so from a usability perspective…the question becomes what happens when…one element obscures another, is that acceptable?…By looking at the elements you can see differences…in elevation from the size of the shadows that are drawn.…For example here at the Material IO website,…we can see an example where the top box…is clearly more elevated than the bottom one…due to the much larger shadow.…
Since there can be occasional clipping problems…with shadows in earlier versions of Android,…it is important to occasionally verify…that shadows are being displayed correctly…to match elevation expectations.…A lot of the elevation implementation…is automatically handled for you.…For example most views you will work with…already have the default elevation…and will use that automatically.…There are some limitations to consider, however.…
