Custom LiveData

You may write custom LiveData, if you need custom logic.

Don’t write custom class, if you only need to transform data (use Transformations class)

public class LocationLiveData extends LiveData<Location> {
    private LocationManager locationManager;
    
    private LocationListener listener = new LocationListener() {
        @Override
        public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
            setValue(location);
        }

        @Override
        public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {
            // Do something
        }

        @Override
        public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
            // Do something
        }

        @Override
        public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
            // Do something
        }
    };

    public LocationLiveData(Context context) {
        locationManager = (LocationManager) context.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onActive() {
        // We have observers, start working
        locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER, 0, 0, listener);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onInactive() {
        // We have no observers, stop working
        locationManager.removeUpdates(listener);
    }
}
