Android Animations and Transitions Activity Transitions: Advanced Topics Use the Overlay for Shared Elements

The transition for the Activity below has shared elements in the overlay. Turn it off so that the animation runs in the

MainActivity.java
public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    // Some code omitted for brevity!

    public void setupTransitions() {
        Slide slide = new Slide(Gravity.BOTTOM);
        slide.excludeTarget(android.R.id.statusBarBackground, true);
        getWindow().setEnterTransition(slide);
        getWindow().setSharedElementsUseOverLay(false);
    }
}

Hi there! I received your request for assistance and you're doing terrific! You got bitten by the typo bug, and it happens to us all. You wrote:

.setSharedElementsUseOverLay

But that should be:

.setSharedElementsUseOverlay

Note the capitalization of the "L" in the second version vs the first. It should be lower case.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

thnx a lot jen
