Android Two widgets with different layouts declaration


Example

  1. Declare two receivers in a manifest file:
<receiver
    android:name=".UVMateWidget"
    android:label="UVMate Widget 1x1">
    <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE" />
    </intent-filter>

    <meta-data
        android:name="android.appwidget.provider"
        android:resource="@xml/widget_1x1" />
</receiver>
<receiver
    android:name=".UVMateWidget2x2"
    android:label="UVMate Widget 2x2">
    <intent-filter>
        <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE" />
    </intent-filter>

    <meta-data
        android:name="android.appwidget.provider"
        android:resource="@xml/widget_2x2" />
</receiver>
  1. Create two layouts
    • @xml/widget_1x1
    • @xml/widget_2x2
  2. Declare the subclass UVMateWidget2x2 from the UVMateWidget class with extended behavior:
package au.com.aershov.uvmate;

import android.content.Context;
import android.widget.RemoteViews;

public class UVMateWidget2x2 extends UVMateWidget {

    public RemoteViews getRemoteViews(Context context, int minWidth,
                                      int minHeight) {

        mUVMateHelper.saveWidgetSize(mContext.getString(R.string.app_ws_2x2));
        return new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(), R.layout.widget_2x2);
    }
}
