NOTE: This library is not necessary anymore. Newer versions of Android provide a new tool called Layout Inspector that should be used instead.

ViewServer is a simple class you can use in your Android application to use the HierarchyViewer inspection tool.

ViewServer requires the Android SDK r12 or higher. http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Quick Start

If you do need this library then follow these directions:

  • Include the ViewServer library(easy directions found here)
  • Your application must require the INTERNET permission
  • The recommended way to use this API is to register activities when they are created, and to unregister them when they get destroyed:
public class MyActivity extends Activity {
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        // Set content view, etc.
        ViewServer.get(this).addWindow(this);
    }

    public void onDestroy() {
        super.onDestroy();
        ViewServer.get(this).removeWindow(this);
    }

    public void onResume() {
        super.onResume();
        ViewServer.get(this).setFocusedWindow(this);
    }
}

Please refer to the documentation in ViewServer.java for more info.
