Notifications Tutorial Part 3 – BIG TEXT STYLE + INBOX STYLE – Android Studio Tutorial
In the next parts of the notification tutorial, we will learn how to apply different pre-defined styles to our notifications with the NotificationCompat.Builder’s setStyle method.
We will start by adding the BigTextStyle, with which we can display a larger amount of text in the expanded state of the notification. For this we have to call bigText on this BigTextStyle object and provide a CharSequence.
Furthermore we can call setBigContentTitle and setSummaryText to provide an alternative title for the expanded state, and a small summary text.
Next we will take a look at the InboxStyle, which is pretty similar to BigTextStyle, but instead of defining one big text, we can display up to 7 separate lines by calling addLine and supplying a string for each one.
Also we will learn how to add a large icon (for example a user image) to our notificaiton with the setLargeIcon method, where we have to pass a Bitmap.
