Window insets have long been a source of confusion to developers, and that’s because they are indeed very confusing! The system dispatches Insets for many reasons, such as drawing behind navigation bars, full-screen immersive modes or handling round displays.
In this session Chris will deep-dive on the situations where you need to consider Window Insets, and how you can handle them without resorting to copying random code from StackOverflow.
You will learn the answers to questions such as: ‘How do I handle these in my custom view?’, ‘How do I draw behind the status bar?’ and ‘What was the developer of AppBarLayout thinking?!’
