Proof of concept android app to Lock notification bar on Android Orio (API 26)


I need a sample app (just one activity and service) that need to block notification bar by putting a overlay on top on notification bar. The app needs to able to do this without being a system app and on non rooted device.

This used to work till android 7 but on Android 8 (api level 26), android change the api and requires system permission for this to work. Below is the code that used to work not no longer works:

When app is started, it starts the service which executes following code to block notificaion bar

mLP = new [url removed, login to view](



// Allows the view to be on top of the StatusBar


// Keeps the button presses from going to the background

// window



// Enables the notification to recieve touch

// events



// Draws over status bar


[url removed, login to view]);

[url removed, login to view] = [url removed, login to view] | [url removed, login to view];

mWindowManager = (WindowManager) getSystemService(WINDOW_SERVICE);

[url removed, login to view](mView, mLP);

Here is the stack overflow link that explains the issue with Android 8.0 (api level 26)

[url removed, login to view]

I am OK of other way of blocking it. The goal is either user not able to drag the notification bar or as soon as they drag it, app detects is and blocks that action.
