WindowInsets Handling & Keyboard Animations

Until now keyboards and Androids seemed to go in opposite directions. There was no API you could query to learn if the keyboard was open or to know its size. When the keyboard popped up, the screen and views would automatically rearrange themselves without a smooth transition. In this course learn how to interact with the keyboard via WindowInsets. Read its properties, know if it’s open, and create smooth, synchronous, animations. By Carlos Mota.
