Floating View for Android app - Facebook ChatHeads Notification system This is a demo of how works Facebook ChatHeads.

Details

Basiclay all you need to do is to create a service (background running) with image View like this :

windowManager = (WindowManager) getSystemService(WINDOW_SERVICE);

    chatHead = new ImageView(this);
    chatHead.setImageResource(R.drawable.floating2);

        final WindowManager.LayoutParams params = new WindowManager.LayoutParams(
                WindowManager.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,
                WindowManager.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,
                WindowManager.LayoutParams.TYPE_PHONE,
                WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_NOT_FOCUSABLE,
                PixelFormat.TRANSLUCENT);

        params.gravity = Gravity.TOP | Gravity.LEFT;
        params.x = 0;
        params.y = 100;

Then start your service :

    startService(new Intent(MainActivity.this, ServiceFloating.class));

If you wanna have a floating window, you can use PopupWindow :

      LayoutInflater layoutInflater = (LayoutInflater)getBaseContext().getSystemService(LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);  
        View popupView = layoutInflater.inflate(R.layout.popup, null);  
            pwindo = new PopupWindow(popupView, LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,  LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);  
            if(_enable == true) {
            pwindo.showAsDropDown(chatHead, 50, -30);
