The Android Design Support Library is full of interesting widgets, but none are more powerful than the CoordinatorLayout. Billed as a “super-powered FrameLayout”, it provides a framework for building complex touch interactions and behaviors between related views. It builds on the nested scrolling behavior built into views starting with Android 5.0, and backported in the latest support library releases.

CoordinatorLayout exposes these complex interactions in the form of Behaviors. We will be discussing how CoordinatorLayout uses Behaviors to accomplish its goals. You will also learn what behaviors are available from the support library…and how to create your own.
