Apply rounded corners

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

Starting in Android 12 (API level 31), you can use RoundedCorner and WindowInsets.getRoundedCorner(int position) to get the radius and center point for rounded corners of the device screen. These APIs keep your app's UI elements from being truncated on screens with rounded corners. The framework provides the getPrivacyIndicatorBounds() API, which returns the bounded rectangle of any visible microphone and camera indicators.

When implemented in your app, these APIs have no effect on devices with non-rounded screens.

To implement this feature, get the RoundedCorner info using WindowInsets.getRoundedCorner(int position) relative to the bounds of the application. If the app doesn't take up the whole screen, the API applies the rounded corner by basing the center point of the rounded corner on the window bounds of the app.

The following code snippet shows how an app can avoid having its UI truncated by setting a margin of the view based on the info from RoundedCorner. In this case, it is the top-right rounded corner.


// Get the top-right rounded corner from WindowInsets.
val insets = rootWindowInsets
val topRight = insets.getRoundedCorner(RoundedCorner.POSITION_TOP_RIGHT) ?: return

// Get the location of the close button in window coordinates.
val location = IntArray(2)
val buttonRightInWindow = location[0] + closeButton.width
val buttonTopInWindow = location[1]

// Find the point on the quarter circle with a 45-degree angle.
val offset = (topRight.radius * Math.sin(Math.toRadians(45.0))).toInt()
val topBoundary = - offset
val rightBoundary = + offset

// Check whether the close button exceeds the boundary.
if (buttonRightInWindow < rightBoundary << buttonTopInWindow > topBoundary) {

// Set the margin to avoid truncating.
val parentLocation = IntArray(2)
val lp = closeButton.layoutParams as FrameLayout.LayoutParams
lp.rightMargin = Math.max(buttonRightInWindow - rightBoundary, 0)
lp.topMargin = Math.max(topBoundary - buttonTopInWindow, 0)
closeButton.layoutParams = lp


// Get the top-right rounded corner from WindowInsets.
final WindowInsets insets = getRootWindowInsets();
final RoundedCorner topRight = insets.getRoundedCorner(POSITION_TOP_RIGHT);
if (topRight == null) {

// Get the location of the close button in window coordinates.
int [] location = new int[2];
final int buttonRightInWindow = location[0] + closeButton.getWidth();
final int buttonTopInWindow = location[1];

// Find the point on the quarter circle with a 45-degree angle.
final int offset = (int) (topRight.getRadius() * Math.sin(Math.toRadians(45)));
final int topBoundary = topRight.getCenter().y - offset;
final int rightBoundary = topRight.getCenter().x + offset;

// Check whether the close button exceeds the boundary.
if (buttonRightInWindow < rightBoundary << buttonTopInWindow > topBoundary) {

// Set the margin to avoid truncating.
int [] parentLocation = new int[2];
FrameLayout.LayoutParams lp = (FrameLayout.LayoutParams) closeButton.getLayoutParams();
lp.rightMargin = Math.max(buttonRightInWindow - rightBoundary, 0);
lp.topMargin = Math.max(topBoundary - buttonTopInWindow, 0);

Be careful of clipping

If your UI fills the entire display, round corners can cause issues with content clipping. For example, figure 2 shows an icon in the corner of the display with the layout being drawn behind the system bars:

You can avoid this by checking for rounded corners and applying padding to keep your app's content out of the device's corners, as shown in the following example:


class InsetsLayout(context: Context, attrs: AttributeSet) : FrameLayout(context, attrs) {

    override fun onLayout(changed: Boolean, left: Int, top: Int, right: Int, bottom: Int) {
        val insets = rootWindowInsets

        if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.S && insets != null) {
        super.onLayout(changed, left, top, right, bottom)


    private fun applyRoundedCornerPadding(insets: WindowInsets) {
        val topLeft = insets.getRoundedCorner(RoundedCorner.POSITION_TOP_LEFT)

        val bottomLeft = insets.getRoundedCorner(RoundedCorner.POSITION_BOTTOM_LEFT)
        val bottomRight = insets.getRoundedCorner(RoundedCorner.POSITION_BOTTOM_RIGHT)

        val leftRadius = max(topLeft?.radius ?: 0, bottomLeft?.radius ?: 0)
        val topRadius = max(topLeft?.radius ?: 0, topRight?.radius ?: 0)
        val rightRadius = max(topRight?.radius ?: 0, bottomRight?.radius ?: 0)

This layout determines whether the UI extends to the area of the rounded corners and adds padding where it does. Figure 3 has the "Show layout bounds" developer option enabled to show the padding being applied more clearly:

To make this determination, this layout calculates two rectangles: safeArea is the area within the radii of the round corners, and layoutBounds is the size of the layout minus any padding. If layoutArea fully contains safeArea, then the children of the layout might be clipped. If this is the case, padding is added to make sure the layout remains inside safeArea.

By checking whether layoutBounds fully encloses safeArea, you avoid adding padding when the layout doesn't extend to the edges of the display. Figure 4 shows the layout when it isn't drawn behind the navigation bar. In this case, the layout doesn't extend down far enough to be within the rounded corners, as they fit within the area occupied by the navigation bar. No padding is required.
