Create a Notification Panel

A notification itself is a panel, and a panel needs an IviFragment and a FrontendViewModel for the creation.

To create notifications, you need:

TomTom Digital Cockpit provides clients different ways for the notification creation. You can either use:

The following sections explain different ways to create a notification. An example app is provided in the examples/notifications directory.

Create a Stock Notification Panel

StockNotificationPanel is a notification panel which can only be created by StockNotificationPanel.create. You don't need to derive NotificationPanel, NotificationFragment, and NotificationViewModel yourself. You can just focus on providing data for the content.

The example below creates a notification when you click on the button. It demonstrates how you can create it by using StockNotificationPanel.create.

Implement your own Notification Panel

If you need more complex logic for notifications, for example extra actions to be performed when a notification is dismissed, you can implement NotificationPanel yourself. The example below is similar to the previous one, except we choose to implement NotificationPanel manually.
