Get display information using DisplayMetrics, in Multi-Window Mode


The class android.util.DisplayMetrics is a structure describing general information about a display, such as its size, density, and font scaling. Here show how to get display information (specially heightPixels and widthPixels) in Multi-Window Mode.


package com.blogspot.android_er.androidmultiwindow;

        import android.content.res.Configuration;
        import android.os.Bundle;
        import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
        import android.util.DisplayMetrics;
        import android.widget.TextView;
        import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    TextView textPrompt;
    TextView textInfo;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        textPrompt = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.prompt);
        textInfo = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.info);

        if(isInMultiWindowMode()){
            textPrompt.setText("onCreate run In Multi Window Mode ");
        }else{
            textPrompt.setText("onCreate run NOT In Multi Window Mode ");
        }

        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,
                "onCreate() called", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

        showDisplayInfo();
    }

    @Override
    public void onMultiWindowModeChanged(boolean isInMultiWindowMode) {
        super.onMultiWindowModeChanged(isInMultiWindowMode);

        if(isInMultiWindowMode){
            textPrompt.setText("It is In Multi Window Mode ");
        }else{
            textPrompt.setText("It is NOT In Multi Window Mode ");
        }

        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,
                "onMultiWindowModeChanged() called", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

        showDisplayInfo();
    }

    @Override
    public void onConfigurationChanged(Configuration newConfig) {
        super.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);

        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,
                "onConfigurationChanged() called", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

        showDisplayInfo();
    }

    private void showDisplayInfo(){
        DisplayMetrics dm = new DisplayMetrics();
        getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay().getMetrics(dm);

        String strScreenDIP = "";
        strScreenDIP += "The logical density of the display: " + dm.density + "\n";
        strScreenDIP += "The screen density expressed as dots-per-inch: " + dm.densityDpi +"\n";
        strScreenDIP += "The absolute height of the display in pixels: " + dm.heightPixels +"\n";
        strScreenDIP += "The absolute width of the display in pixels: " + dm.widthPixels + "\n";
        strScreenDIP += "A scaling factor for fonts displayed on the display: " 
                + dm.scaledDensity + "\n";
        strScreenDIP += "The exact physical pixels per inch of the screen in the X dimension: " 
                + dm.xdpi + "\n";
        strScreenDIP += "The exact physical pixels per inch of the screen in the Y dimension: " 
                + dm.ydpi + "\n";

        textInfo.setText(strScreenDIP);
    }
}
