Working with Dialogs

Abstract

The Android SDK offers extensive support for dialogs. A dialog is a smaller window that pops up in front of the current window to show an urgent message, to prompt the user for a piece of input, or to show some sort of status like the progress of a download. The user is generally expected to interact with the dialog and then return to the window underneath to continue with the application. Technically, Android allows a dialog fragment to also be embedded within an activity’s layout, and we’ll cover that as well.
