Moderate open channels and participants
In open channels, you can moderate channels and participants through the
OpenChannelModerationFragment class. Using the moderation menu, you can retrieve a list of operators, muted participants, and banned users in a channel. In order to use this feature, a channel must have at least one operator.
Open channel moderation screen
An open channel moderation screen is composed of two components: header and moderation list.
The header component shows the default title of the open 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 participants, and banned users. The view of the moderation list is created and customized in the
OpenChannelModerationListComponent of the
UIKit for Android provides both activity and fragment to create an open channel 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 an open channel moderation screen through
OpenChannelModerationActivity, which uses
UIKitFragmentFactory to create views.
Start an activity
You can start an activity by using
intent to move from one activity to
OpenChannelModerationActivity as shown below:
Create a fragment
OpenChannelModerationActivity 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
OpenChannelModerationFragment. To see all APIs of
OpenChannelModerationFragment.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 open channels and participants key function, you can customize
OpenChannelModerationFragment to change different parts of the screen. The
OpenChannelModerationFragment.Builder class allows you to create and customize the basic
OpenChannelModerationFragment 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
OpenChannelModerationFragment to display and customize the open 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 open channel moderation screen, you must use the correct classes.
