Customizing Rich Media Appearance

This guide refers to customizing Rich Media appearance and animation styles

Overview

Customize the appearance of Rich Media pages to make them fit your app’s style perfectly. Change the background color of your In-App Messages, add some animation, or adjust the loading view to the app layout. Improve user experience with In-Apps looking like a natural part of the app.

Implementation

First, get instance of RichMediaStyle class:

iOS

PWRichMediaStyle *style = [PWRichMediaManager sharedManager].richMediaStyle;

Android

RichMediaStyle style = RichMediaManager.getRichMediaStyle();

Background color

Make In-App Messages look like an inherent part of your app by changing the background color of Rich Media pages displayed to the app's users.

iOS

style.backgroundColor = [[UIColor blackColor] colorWithAlphaComponent:0.2f];

Android

style.setBackgroundColor(ContextCompat.getColor(getApplication(),R.color.balck));

That's it!

Animation

Enhance the effect of your In-App Messages by animating Rich Media appearance.

iOS

Set the animation delegate to one of the default classes:

  • PWRichMediaStyleSlideLeftAnimation,

  • PWRichMediaStyleSlideRightAnimation,

  • PWRichMediaStyleSlideTopAnimation,

  • PWRichMediaStyleSlideBottomAnimation,

  • PWRichMediaStyleCrossFadeAnimation.

style.animationDelegate = [PWRichMediaStyleCrossFadeAnimation new];

By default, animation type value for iOS is PWRichMediaStyleAnimationTypeSlideBottom.

Android

Set the animation delegate to one of the default classes:

  • RichMediaAnimationSlideTop,

  • RichMediaAnimationSlideBottom,

  • RichMediaAnimationSlideRight,

  • RichMediaAnimationSlideLeft,

  • RichMediaAnimationCrossFade.

richMediaStyle.setRichMediaAnimationType(new RichMediaAnimationSlideTop());

By default, animation type value for Android is RichMediaAnimationSlideBottom.

To set a custom animation, implement PWRichMediaStyleAnimationDelegate method for iOS or RichMediaAnimation for Android as follows:

iOS

1. Set the animation delegate:

style.animationDelegate = self;

2. Implement PWRichMediaStyleAnimationDelegate methods (don't forget to call a completion block):

- (void)runPresentingAnimationWithContentView:(UIView *)contentView parentView:(UIView *)parentView completion:(dispatch_block_t)completion {
contentView.transform = CGAffineTransformMakeTranslation(0, parentView.bounds.size.height);
[UIView animateWithDuration:0.6
delay:0
usingSpringWithDamping:0.4
initialSpringVelocity:0
options:0
animations:^{
contentView.transform = CGAffineTransformIdentity;
} completion:^(BOOL finished) {
completion();
}];
}
- (void)runDismissingAnimationWithContentView:(UIView *)contentView parentView:(UIView *)parentView completion:(dispatch_block_t)completion {
[UIView animateWithDuration:0.3
animations:^{
contentView.alpha = 0.0f;
contentView.transform = CGAffineTransformMakeScale(2, 2);
} completion:^(BOOL finished) {
completion();
}];
}

Android

Implement RichMediaAnimation interface and set it for custom Rich Media close and open animation:

richMediaStyle.setRichMediaAnimation(new RichMediaAnimation() {
//Allows to set rules and behavior for custom Rich Media open animation
@Override
public void openAnimation(View contentView, View parentView) {
AnimationSet fadeInAnimation = new AnimationSet(true);
fadeInAnimation.addAnimation(new TranslateAnimation(0.15f * parentView.getWidth(), 0, parentView.getHeight() / 2.5f, 0));
fadeInAnimation.addAnimation(new AlphaAnimation(0, 1));
fadeInAnimation.addAnimation(new ScaleAnimation(0.7f, 1.0f, 0.7f, 1.0f));
fadeInAnimation.setDuration(2000);
fadeInAnimation.setInterpolator(new DecelerateInterpolator(1f));
contentView.startAnimation(fadeInAnimation);
}
//Allows to set rules and behavior for custom Rich Media close animation
@Override
public void closeAnimation(View contentView, View parentView, Animation.AnimationListener endAnimationListener) {
// !IMPORTANT!
// endAnimationListener has to be added to your custom animation to let Pushwoosh SDK handle animation end event
AlphaAnimation alphaAnimation = new AlphaAnimation(1, 0);
alphaAnimation.setDuration(2000);
alphaAnimation.setAnimationListener(endAnimationListener);
alphaAnimation.setFillEnabled(true);
alphaAnimation.setFillAfter(true);
contentView.animate().translationY(parentView.getHeight() / 5).setDuration(250).start();
parentView.startAnimation(alphaAnimation);
}
});

Custom loading view

Catch user attention from the first seconds with customized loading view of your In-App Messages.

iOS

1) Use loadingViewBlock as follows:

style.loadingViewBlock = ^PWLoadingView *{
return [[[NSBundle mainBundle] loadNibNamed:@"LoadingView" owner:self options:nil] lastObject];
};

2) "LoadingView" here must inherit from PWLoadingView (defined in PWRichMediaStyle.h):

3) Set outlets:

Android

RichMediaStyle.LoadingViewCreatorInterface implements a method that returns a View to be used as a loading screen for Rich Media:

richMediaStyle.setLoadingViewCreator(() -> {
View screenView = createYourScreenView();
return screenView;
});

Close button enabling delay

Make sure the In-App Message is shown to users by disabling close button until the Rich Media is loaded.

iOS

style.closeButtonPresentingDelay = 3;

Android

// set a value in milliseconds
richMediaStyle.setTimeOutBackButtonEnable(3000);
