This walkthrough shows the basic usage and workflow for the Hierarchy Viewer tool.
The Hierarchy Viewer tool visualizes your app's view hierarchy and profiles the relative rendering speed for each view.
What it's good for:
- Simplifying your view hierarchy to reduce overdraw, and make it easier to manage.
- Finding potential rendering performance bottlenecks related to the structure and shape of your view hierarchy.
- A mobile device set up to work with Hierarchy Viewer:
- Debuggable app code with a view hierarchy. Use your own code, or the code for the Sunshine sample app from the Android Fundamentals Udacity course.
