In group channels, you can moderate channels and members through the
ModerationFragment class. Using the moderation menu, you can retrieve a list of operators, muted members, and banned users in a channel, as well as freeze the channel. In order to use this feature, a channel must have at least one operator.
A group channel moderation screen is composed of two components: header and moderation list.
The header component shows the default title of the group channel moderation screen as
Moderations. It also has two buttons on the left corner of the header. When the left button is tapped, the
finish() method of the activity is called to exit the screen. The view of the header is created and customized in the
HeaderComponent of the
The moderation list shows all items of the moderation menu, which includes a list of operators, muted members, banned members, and the option to freeze the channel. The view of the moderation list is created and customized in the
ModerationListComponent of the
UIKit for Android provides both activity and fragment to create a moderation screen. You can choose which one to build your app with and you may solely use activity instead of fragment if you wish to. You can build a group channel moderation screen through
ModerationActivity, which uses
UIKitFragmentFactory to create views.
You can start an activity by using
intent to move from one activity to
ModerationActivity as shown below:
ModerationActivity allows you to create a basic
UIKitFragmentFactory has a set of methods that build each fragment, whereas the builder class provides APIs to customize the UI of the data and event handlers used in
ModerationFragment. To see all APIs of
ModerationFragment.Builder, refer to the API reference page.
Note: To use UIKit's fragments as a nested fragment, refer to the Android Developer Documentation's Nested Fragments.
In the moderate channels and members key function, you can customize
ModerationFragment to change different parts of the screen. The
ModerationFragment.Builder class allows you to create and customize the basic
ModerationFragment that UIKit provides but you can only change its own APIs, such as setting a layout. If you wish to customize the fragment beyond using the APIs provided in the builder, you must inherit new customization methods.
The following table shows the main classes used in
ModerationFragment to display and customize the group channel moderation screen.
Depending on the UI or the feature you wish to customize in the fragment, you can change the classes mentioned in the table. To learn how to customize the fragment, follow the links to Customization listed below:
- Customize the layout of the view
- Customize style of the view
- Bind event handlers to the view
- Add new APIs to the fragment
- Update or change an item in a list
Note: The links to the above customization pages provide an example of how to customize classes related to
ChannelFragment. In order to make changes to the group channel moderation screen, you must use the correct classes.
