PositionalDataSource

public abstract class PositionalDataSource<T extends Object> extends DataSource

Object
   ↳ DataSource
     ↳ PositionalDataSource

Position-based data loader for a fixed-size, countable data set, supporting fixed-size loads at arbitrary page positions.

Extend PositionalDataSource if you can load pages of a requested size at arbitrary positions, and provide a fixed item count. If your data source can't support loading arbitrary requested page sizes (e.g. when network page size constraints are only known at runtime), either use PageKeyedDataSource or ItemKeyedDataSource, or pass the initial result with the two parameter LoadInitialCallback.onResult.

Room can generate a Factory of PositionalDataSources for you:

@Dao
interface UserDao {
@Query("SELECT * FROM user ORDER BY age DESC")
public abstract DataSource.Factory<Integer, User> loadUsersByAgeDesc();
}
Parameters
<T extends Object>

Type of items being loaded by the PositionalDataSource.

Parameters
<T extends Object>

Type of items being loaded by the PositionalDataSource.

Public methods

loadInitial

@WorkerThread
@NonNull
public abstract @WorkerThread void loadInitial(
    @NonNull PositionalDataSource.LoadInitialParams params,
    @NonNull PositionalDataSource.LoadInitialCallback<@NonNull T> callback
)

Load initial list data.

This method is called to load the initial page(s) from the DataSource.

LoadResult list must be a multiple of pageSize to enable efficient tiling.

Parameters
@NonNull PositionalDataSource.LoadInitialParams params

Parameters for initial load, including requested start position, load size, and page size.

@NonNull PositionalDataSource.LoadInitialCallback<@NonNull T> callback

Callback that receives initial load data, including position and total data set size.

loadRange

@WorkerThread
@NonNull
public abstract @WorkerThread void loadRange(
    @NonNull PositionalDataSource.LoadRangeParams params,
    @NonNull PositionalDataSource.LoadRangeCallback<@NonNull T> callback
)

Called to load a range of data from the DataSource.

This method is called to load additional pages from the DataSource after the LoadInitialCallback passed to dispatchLo
