Android LifecycleRegistry: setCurrentState vs handleLifecycleEevent

May 13, 2019

As per the source code of, they are the same (as both called moveToState).

public void setCurrentState(@NonNull State state) {    moveToState(state);}

NOTE: setCurrentState is more direct, using Lifecycle.State

public void handleLifecycleEvent(@NonNull Lifecycle.Event event) {    State next = getStateAfter(event);    moveToState(next);}

NOTE: handleLifecycleEvent translate Lifecycle.Event to Lifecycle.State.
