Quick walkthrough


Add this line to your app's dependencies:

implementation 'com.fede987:status-bar-alert:1.1.0'

Quick Sample

Show a new status bar alert:

val statusBarAlertview: StatusBarAlertView = StatusBarAlert.Builder([email protected])

//update status bar alert view text at any time: statusBarAlertView.updateText("UPDATED!!") //or: statusBarAlertView.updateText(R.string.updated)

// show indeterminate progress: statusBarAlertView.showIndeterminateProgress()

// hide indeterminate progress: statusBarAlertView.hideIndeterminateProgress()

Hide all status bar alerts for current activity with an optional "on hidden" callback:

StatusBarAlert.hide([email protected]) {
    // onHidden callback
    Toast.makeText([email protected], "Alert has been hidden.", Toast.LENGHT_SHORT).show()

// or just call:

StatusBarAlert.hide([email protected])
