Android M Preview for developers was released yesterday. As usual, many amazing new features are introduced. I noticed that
Snackbar is one of them.
I have read the document about
Snackbar, from which I learnt that Snackbar is in the library of Android Design Support Library, whose absolute path is
And the document says that:
Snackbars provide lightweight feedback about an operation. They show a brief message at the bottom of the screen on mobile and lower left on larger devices. Snackbars appear above all other elements on screen and only one can be displayed at a time.
They automatically disappear after a timeout or after user interaction elsewhere on the screen, particularly after interactions that summon a new surface or activity. Snackbars can be swiped off screen.
Snackbar behave like a
Toast or a
Dialog? Can Snackbars be used in a layout file? How could I use it programmatically?
- Any samples on use of Snackbar will be appreciated.
- Android Design Support Library is a new support library, could somebody show me more details of this library?
