Migrating from v4 to v5


In this article, the PID 84242 will be used, you can find more PIDs on this article

In the v5 of the SDK, we've introduced a new class called InReadAdPlacement which is responsible of configuring the ad placement and then make the call to our ad server.

Settings

In v4 integration, all settings needed for an ad request was placed in the AdSettings class.

In v5, the setup will be done in two different places, the first one is done during the ad placement configuration, the other one for the ad request.

Below, an example of the new placement and request settings.

val placementSettings = AdPlacementSettings.Builder()
                .enableDebug()
                .build()

val requestSettings = AdRequestSettings.Builder()
            .pageSlotUrl("http://teads.com")
            .build()

Placement

Unlike the v4 integration we don't have to instantiate the InReadAdView, it will be served by the placement once an ad is received.
The first step is to create our InReadAdPlacement with the optional AdPlacementSettings created.

val placementSettings = AdPlacementSettings.Builder()
                .enableDebug()
                .build()

val adPlacement = TeadsSDK.createInReadPlacement(constext, 84242, placementSettings) //replace with the right placement id

Request an ad

Now we can request an ad. We just have to call the requestAd method from our placement with the settings and a listener.

val requestSettings = AdRequestSettings.Builder()
            .pageSlotUrl("http://teads.com")
            .build()

adPlacement.requestAd(requestSettings, object : InReadAdListener {
        override fun onAdReceived(inReadAdView: InReadAdView, adRatio: AdRatio) {
                this@InReadScrollViewFragment.inReadAdView = inReadAdView
                adSlotView.addView(inReadAdView, 0)
        }

        override fun adOpportunityTrackerView(trackerView: AdOpportunityTrackerView) {}
        override fun onAdClicked() {}
        override fun onAdClosed() {}
        override fun onAdError(code: Int, description: String) {}
        override fun onAdImpression() {}
        override fun onFailToReceiveAd(failReason: String) {}
})

Display an ad

When an ad is received, we just have to add the provided InReadAdView in the view parent.

⚠️ Note that the view needs to be at the top of the view parent to avoid potential overlay.

override fun onAdReceived(inReadAdView: InReadAdView, adRatio: AdRatio) {
        this@InReadScrollViewFragment.inReadAdView = inReadAdView
        adSlotView.addView(inReadAdView)
}

AdOpportunityTrackerView

The AdOpportunityTrackerView is a view that you will need to add to your slot view.

You should add it using in adOpportunityTrackerView callback method.
Its function is to monitor the inventory.

Once the AdOpportunityTrackerView is visible, it will be automatically removed.

override fun adOpportunityTrackerView(trackerView: AdOpportunityTrackerView) {
        adSlotView.addView(trackerView)
}

Validate your integration

In order to validate that your integration is well done you can use our validation tool.

To do that you just have to enable it in the TeadsAdRequestSettings like that:

val requestSettings = AdRequestSettings.Builder()
            .enableValidationMode()
            .build()

adPlacement.requestAd(requestSettings, listener)

Compile, then go to the view that contains your ad and you just have to follow along with the instructions.

IMPORTANT: ⚠️ don't forget to remove this setting before going in production! ⚠️
