handler、 looper 和messagequeue

前言

handler是android 开发重要的组成部分,主要用于在不同的线程中相互通信,使用场景最多的应该就是在子线程中更新 UI。想要开发android首先要熟知handler。

几个重要的概念

Handler:处理与发送消息(Message)
Message:消息的包装类
Looper:整个 Handler 通信的核心,接受 Handler 发送的 Message,循环遍历 MessageQueue 中的 Message,并发送至 Handler 处理
MessageQueue:保存 Message
LocalThread:存储 Looper 与 Looper所在线程的信息

一线程可以有几个handler 几个looper?

从如下源代码中我们不难发现,主线程创建完looper后会赋值给成员变量,每次创建也会检测该变量的值是否存在,如果已创建则会抛出异常,子线程类似,不过存储的时候放在了sThreadLocal中。

public static void prepare() {
        prepare(true);
    }

    private static void prepare(boolean quitAllowed) {
        if (sThreadLocal.get() != null) {
            throw new RuntimeException("Only one Looper may be created per thread");
        }
        sThreadLocal.set(new Looper(quitAllowed));
    }
   public static void prepareMainLooper() {
        prepare(false);
        synchronized (Looper.class) {
            if (sMainLooper != null) {
                throw new IllegalStateException("The main Looper has already been prepared.");
            }
            sMainLooper = myLooper();
        }
    }

Handler 如何与 Looper 关联起来

Looper.myLooper() 方法将 Looper 对象赋值给当前 Handler 中的 mLooper,在调用 mLooper.mQueue 将 Looper 中的 MessageQueue 赋值给 mQueue。

public Handler(Callback callback, boolean async) {
    if (FIND_POTENTIAL_LEAKS) {
        final Class<? extends Handler> klass = getClass();
        if ((klass.isAnonymousClass() || klass.isMemberClass() || klass.isLocalClass()) &&
                (klass.getModifiers() & Modifier.STATIC) == 0) {
            Log.w(TAG, "The following Handler class should be static or leaks might occur: " +
                    klass.getCanonicalName());
        }
    }
    mLooper = Looper.myLooper();
    if (mLooper == null) {
        throw new RuntimeException(
                "Can't create handler inside thread that has not called Looper.prepare()");
    }
    mQueue = mLooper.mQueue;
    mCallback = callback;
    mAsynchronous = async;
}

looper.loop()为啥不会造成ANR

anr 是应用在规定时间内执行启动服务,广播,contentprovider,事件的时候指定时间未给以回应(....DoneExecutinglock)。然后我们回到
loop的主要代码如下,划重点,轮训消息 queue.next()----> 队列中有消息----> nativePollOnce(ptr, nextPollTimeoutMillis) ,如果队列中无消息线程就会进入休眠状态,再次受到消息enqueueMessage(Message msg, long when) ----->nativeWake() ---->继续轮询queue.next()

/**
 * Run the message queue in this thread. Be sure to call
 * {@link #quit()} to end the loop.
 */
public static void loop() {
    final Looper me = myLooper();
    if (me == null) {
        throw new RuntimeException("No Looper; Looper.prepare() wasn't called on this thread.");
    }
    final MessageQueue queue = me.mQueue;
    // Make sure the identity of this thread is that of the local process,
    // and keep track of what that identity token actually is.
    Binder.clearCallingIdentity();
    final long ident = Binder.clearCallingIdentity();
    for (;;) {
        Message msg = queue.next(); // might block
        if (msg == null) {
            // No message indicates that the message queue is quitting.
            return;
        }
        // This must be in a local variable, in case a UI event sets the logger
        final Printer logging = me.mLogging;
        if (logging != null) {
            logging.println(">>>>> Dispatching to " + msg.target + " " +
                    msg.callback + ": " + msg.what);
        }
        final long traceTag = me.mTraceTag;
        if (traceTag != 0 && Trace.isTagEnabled(traceTag)) {
            Trace.traceBegin(traceTag, msg.target.getTraceName(msg));
        }
        try {
            msg.target.dispatchMessage(msg);
        } finally {
            if (traceTag != 0) {
                Trace.traceEnd(traceTag);
            }
        }
        ......
        msg.recycleUnchecked();
    }
}

IdleHandler的触发世间

当轮训消息的结果为null或者当前的时间now< message.when取出来所有的消息并回调IdleHandler 的queueIdle(),所以在activty 生命周期执行完成之前 ,也就是我们经常在OnCreat()中延迟执行的代码都可以换成idleHandler,以避免影响生命周期的调用。

 Message next() {
        // Return here if the message loop has already quit and been disposed.
        // This can happen if the application tries to restart a looper after quit
        // which is not supported.
        final long ptr = mPtr;
        if (ptr == 0) {
            return null;
        }

        int pendingIdleHandlerCount = -1; // -1 only during first iteration
        int nextPollTimeoutMillis = 0;
        for (;;) {
            if (nextPollTimeoutMillis != 0) {
                Binder.flushPendingCommands();
            }

            nativePollOnce(ptr, nextPollTimeoutMillis);

            synchronized (this) {
                // Try to retrieve the next message.  Return if found.
                final long now = SystemClock.uptimeMillis();
                Message prevMsg = null;
                Message msg = mMessages;
                if (msg != null && msg.target == null) {
                    // Stalled by a barrier.  Find the next asynchronous message in the queue.
                    do {
                        prevMsg = msg;
                        msg = msg.next;
                    } while (msg != null && !msg.isAsynchronous());
                }
                if (msg != null) {
                    if (now < msg.when) {
                        // Next message is not ready.  Set a timeout to wake up when it is ready.
                        nextPollTimeoutMillis = (int) Math.min(msg.when - now, Integer.MAX_VALUE);
                    } else {

                            prevMsg.next = msg.next;
                        } else {
