Android Suspendable Dialogs

A helper library for Android to display Dialogs by suspending the coroutine till finish of the dialog.

Installation

Some Differences with and without suspend

Confirm

The below example shows how a normal dialog is shown without any suspension

MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected])
    .setTitle("Title")
    .setMessage("Message")
    .setPositiveButton("Positive") { _, _ ->
        // code to execute
    }
    .setNegativeButton("Negative") { _, _ ->
        // code to execute
    }
    .setNeutralButton("Neutral") { _, _ ->
        // code to execute
    }
    .show()
        
    // this code is executed before the dialog is finished
    println("Hello World")

Now, using the suspend dialog, we can wait for the dialog to be finish after continue with rest of the code flow

val result = SuspendAlertDialog.confirm(
    positiveButtonText = "Positive",
    negativeButtonText = "Negative",
    neutralButtonText = "Neutral"
) {
    MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected])
        .setTitle("Title")
        .setMessage("Message")
}

// this line is executed after the dialog above is finish
tvResult.text = result.toString()

If you are fan of extension functions, the below approach can be used to achieve the same behavior as above.

val result = MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected])
    .setTitle("Title")
    .setMessage("Message")
    .confirm(
        positiveButtonText = "Save",
        negativeButtonText = "Cancel",
        neutralButtonText = "Neutral",
    )

tvResult.text = result.toString()

Alert

SuspendAlertDialog.alert("Ok") {
    MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected]).setTitle("Selected Option")
}

tvResult.text = getString(R.string.alert_finished)

Using extension function

MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected])
    .setTitle("Selected Option")
    .alert("Ok")

tvResult.text = getString(R.string.alert_finished)

Multi Choice Items

val multiChoiceResult = SuspendAlertDialog.setMultiChoiceItems(
        positiveButtonText = "Save",
        negativeButtonText = "Cancel",
        neutralButtonText = "Minimize",
        items = SuspendAlertDialog.MultiChoiceItems(
            items = listOf("Hello", "World", "Berlin", "Germany"),
            checked = listOf(false, false, false, false)
        )
) {
    MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected]).setTitle("Title")
}

tvResult.text = multiChoiceResult.toString()

Using extension function

val result = MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected])
    .setTitle("Title")
    .setMultiChoiceItems(
        positiveButtonText = "Save",
        negativeButtonText = "Cancel",
        neutralButtonText = "Minimize",
        items = SuspendAlertDialog.MultiChoiceItems(
            items = listOf("Hello", "World", "Berlin", "Germany"),
            checked = listOf(false, false, false, false)
        )
    )

tvResult.text = result.toString()

Single Choice Items

val singleChoiceResult = SuspendAlertDialog.setSingleChoiceItems(
    positiveButtonText = "Save",
    negativeButtonText = "Cancel",
    neutralButtonText = "Minimize",
    items = SuspendAlertDialog.SingleChoiceItems(
        items = listOf("Hello", "World", "Berlin", "Germany"),
        selectedIndex = 1
    )
) {
  MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected]).setTitle("Title")
}

tvResult.text = singleChoiceResult.toString()

Using extension function

val result = MaterialAlertDialogBuilder([email protected])
    .setTitle("Title")
    .setSingleChoiceItems(
        positiveButtonText = "Save",
        negativeButtonText = "Cancel",
        neutralButtonText = "Minimize",
        items = SuspendAlertDialog.SingleChoiceItems(
            items = listOf("Hello", "World", "Berlin", "Germany"),
            selectedIndex = 1
        )
    )

tvResult.text = result.toString()

Custom Dialogs (DialogFragment & BottomSheetDialogFragment)

While above we read how to suspend calls to some dialogs, here we will discuss about suspend of calls to the DialogFragment and BottomSheetDialogFragment.

showAwait

Show await suspends the call till the dialog is destroyed. Returns an Unit.

DemoDialogFragment().showAwait(
	fragmentManager = supportFragmentManager,
	tag = DemoDialogFragment::class.java.canonicalName
)

tvResult.text = "${DemoDialogFragment::class.java.canonicalName} finished"

showAwaitResult

Dialogs that must return results, an implementation of SuspendDialogResult interface is a must. SuspendDialogResult provides a member called result which one is returned
from the dialog after destroy. Make sure to assign a value to result before calling dismiss.

For more details, check the example app.

val result = DemoResultDialogFragment().showAwaitResult(
	fragmentManager = supportFragmentManager,
	tag = DemoResultDialogFragment::class.java.canonicalName
)
tvResult.text = result
