Show Out-stream Video Ad in A RecyclerView


To set up an Out-stream Video Ad in a RecyclerView of the application, please follow the steps below:

  1. Import com.vpadn.ads.*
  2. Declare an VpadnInReadAd instance
  3. Implement RecyclerView Adapter
  4. Set up VpadnInReadAd instance and indicate a License Key
  5. Request for an Out-stream Video Ad
  6. Implement events for video ad
  7. Implement VpadnAdListener

Please refer to the sample code below to finish your Out-stream Video Ad setting:

Import Vpon SDK And Declare VpadnInReadAd

import com.vpadn.ads.*;
import com.vpon.vpon_inread.fragment.adapter.MyRecyclerAdapter;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    // Declare VpadnInReadAd instance
    private VpadnInReadAd inReadAd;

    // Please replace License Key with the one you received from Vpon
    private String licenseKey = "License Key" ;

    // Please modify the value to indicate the position that will show ad
    public static final int AD_POSITION = 15;
    ...
}

Implement RecyclerView Adapter


To show Out-stream Video Ad in your RecyclerView, please replace android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView.Adapter with com.vpon.adapter.AbsRecyclerAdapter and refer to the sample below to finish your RecyclerView Adapter.

import com.vpon.adapter.AbsRecyclerAdapter;

// Please replace android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView.Adapter with `com.vpon.adapter.AbsRecyclerAdapter`
// Recycler must extends from AbsRecyclerAdapter
public class MyRecyclerAdapter extends AbsRecyclerAdapter<MyRecyclerAdapter.ViewHolder> {
    private List<String> letters;

    public MyRecyclerAdapter(List<String> letters) {
        this.letters = letters;
    }

    class ViewHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {
        TextView textView;
        ViewHolder(@NonNull View convertView) {
            super(convertView);
            textView = convertView.findViewById(R.id.item_label);
        }
    }

    @Override
    protected void bindWrapViewHolder(@NonNull ViewHolder viewHolder, int position) {
        TextView tv = viewHolder.textView;

        if(position == BaseFragment.AD_POSITION -1){
            tv.setText("AD shows below");
        }else if(position == BaseFragment.AD_POSITION){
            tv.setText("AD shows above");
        }else{
            tv.setText(letters.get(position));
        }
    }

    @Override
    protected ViewHolder onWrapViewHolder(@NonNull ViewGroup viewGroup, int viewType) {
        View v = LayoutInflater.from(viewGroup.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.list_item, viewGroup, false);
        return new ViewHolder(v);
    }

    @Override
    protected int getWrapItemCount() {
        return letters.size();
    }
}

Please refer to the chart below to finish your Recyclerview.Adapter:

RecyclerView.Adapter AbsRecyclerAdapter
onCreateViewHolder onWrapViewHolder
onBindViewHolder bindWrapViewHolder
getItemViewType getWrapItemViewType
notifyItemRemoved wrapNotifyItemRemoved
notifyItemChanged wrapNotifyItemChanged
notifyItemRangeRemoved wrapNotifyItemRangeRemoved
notifyItemRangeInserted wrapNotifyItemRangeInserted
notifyItemRangeChanged wrapNotifyItemRangeChanged
notifyItemMoved wrapNotifyItemMoved
notifyItemInserted wrapNotifyItemInserted

Set Up VpadnInReadAd Instance And Indicate A License Key

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    ...
    // Set up RecyclerView
    RecyclerView mRecyclerView = view.findViewById(R.id.recyclerView);
    mRecyclerView.setHasFixedSize(true);
    RecyclerView.LayoutManager mLayoutManager = new StaggeredGridLayoutManager(1, StaggeredGridLayoutManager.VERTICAL);
    mRecyclerView.setLayoutManager(mLayoutManager);
    List<String> letterList = new ArrayList<>(Arrays.asList(letters));

    MyRecyclerAdapter mAdapter = new MyRecyclerAdapter(letterList);
    mRecyclerView.setAdapter(mAdapter);

    // Set up VpadnInReadAd instance and indicate a License Key
    inReadAd = new VpadnInReadAd(getActivity(), license Key);

    // Ad request
    VpadnAdRequest adRequest = new VpadnAdRequest();
    adRequest.setAdContainer(recyclerView);
    adRequest.setAdPosition(AD_POSITION);

    inReadAd.setAdListener(new MyAdListener());

    // Load ad
    inReadAd.loadAd(adRequest);
    ...
}

Implement events for video ad


Please add the code snippet as below in your Activity or Fragment to enhance ad performance:

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
    ...
    @Override
    public void onResume() {
        super.onResume();
        android.util.Log.v("Vpon","onResume invoked!!");
        if(inReadAd != null){
            inReadAd.resume();
        }else{
            android.util.Log.v("Vpon", "inReadAd is null");
        }
    }
    
    @Override
    public void onPause() {
        android.util.Log.v("Vpon","onPause invoked!!");
        if(inReadAd != null){
            inReadAd.pause();
        }else{
            android.util.Log.v("Vpon", "inReadAd is null");
        }
        super.onPause();
    }
    
    @Override
    public void onDestroy() {
        android.util.Log.v("Vpon","onDestroy invoked!!");
        if(inReadAd != null){
            inReadAd.destroy();
        }else{
            android.util.Log.v("Vpon", "inReadAd is null");
        }
        super.onDestroy();
    }
}

Implement VpadnAdListener


After finishing ad request, implement VpadnAdListener as below to listen ad status.

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
    ...
    @Override
    public void onVpadnReceiveAd(VpadnAd ad) {
        Log.v("Vpon","onVpadnReceiveAd invoked!!");
    }
 
    @Override
    public void onVpadnFailedToReceiveAd(VpadnAd ad, VpadnAdRequest.VpadnErrorCode errorCode) {
        Log.v("Vpon","onVpadnFailedToReceiveAd invoked!!");
    }
 
    @Override
    public void onVpadnPresentScreen(VpadnAd ad) {
        Log.v("Vpon","onVpadnPresentScreen invoked!!");
    }
 
    @Override
    public void onVpadnDismissScreen(VpadnAd ad) {
        Log.v("Vpon","onVpadnDismissScreen invoked!!");
    }
 
    @Override
    public void onVpadnLeaveApplication(VpadnAd ad) {
        Log.v("Vpon","onVpadnLeaveApplication invoked!!");
    }
}
