Protocols

The following protocols are available globally.

  • The DFPCustomRenderedAd banner view delegate protocol for notifying the delegate of changes to custom rendered banners.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol DFPCustomRenderedBannerViewDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • The DFPCustomRenderedAd interstitial delegate protocol for notifying the delegate of changes to custom rendered interstitials.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol DFPCustomRenderedInterstitialDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Base ad loader delegate protocol. Ad types provide extended protocols that declare methods to handle successful ad loads.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADAdLoaderDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • An object implementing this protocol contains information set by the publisher on the client device for a particular ad network.

    Ad networks should create an ‘extras’ object implementing this protocol for their publishers to use.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADAdNetworkExtras : NSObjectProtocol
  • The class implementing this protocol will be notified when the DFPBannerView changes ad size. Any views that may be affected by the banner size change will have time to adjust.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADAdSizeDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Implement your app event within these methods. The delegate will be notified when the SDK receives an app event message from the ad.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADAppEventDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Delegate methods for receiving GADBannerView state change messages such as ad request status and ad click lifecycle.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADBannerViewDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • The banner custom event protocol. Your banner custom event handler must implement this protocol.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADCustomEventBanner : NSObjectProtocol
  • Call back to this delegate in your custom event. You must call customEventBanner:didReceiveAd: when there is an ad to show, or customEventBanner:didFailAd: when there is no ad to show. Otherwise, if enough time passed (several seconds) after the SDK called the requestBannerAd: method of your custom event, the mediation SDK will consider the request timed out, and move on to the next ad network.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADCustomEventBannerDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • The interstitial custom event protocol. Your interstitial custom event handler must implement this protocol.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADCustomEventInterstitial : NSObjectProtocol
  • Call back to this delegate in your custom event. You must call customEventInterstitialDidReceiveAd: when there is an ad to show, or customEventInterstitial:didFailAd: when there is no ad to show. Otherwise, if enough time passed (several seconds) after the SDK called the requestInterstitialAdWithParameter: method of your custom event, the mediation SDK will consider the request timed out, and move on to the next ad network.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADCustomEventInterstitialDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Native ad custom event protocol. Your native ad custom event handler class must conform to this protocol.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADCustomEventNativeAd : NSObjectProtocol
  • The delegate of the GADCustomEventNativeAd object must adopt the GADCustomEventNativeAdDelegate protocol. Methods in this protocol are used for native ad’s custom event communication with the Google Mobile Ads SDK.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADCustomEventNativeAdDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • In-app purchase delegate protocol for default purchase handling. The delegate must deliver the purchased item then call the GADDefaultInAppPurchase object’s finishTransaction method.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADDefaultInAppPurchaseDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • In-app purchase delegate protocol for custom purchase handling. The delegate must handle the product purchase flow then call the GADInAppPurchase object’s reportPurchaseStatus: method.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADInAppPurchaseDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Delegate for receiving state change messages from a GADInterstitial such as interstitial ad requests succeeding/failing.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADInterstitialDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Identifies native ad assets.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADNativeAdDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Delegate methods for receiving GADNativeExpressAdView state change messages such as ad request status and ad click lifecycle.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADNativeExpressAdViewDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Delegate for receiving state change messages from a GADRewardBasedVideoAd such as ad requests succeeding/failing.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADRewardBasedVideoAdDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Identifies native ad assets.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADUnifiedNativeAdDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • The GADVideoControllerDelegate protocol defines methods that are called by the video controller object in response to the video events that occured throught the lifetime of the video rendered by an ad.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADVideoControllerDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Ad network adapter protocol.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMAdNetworkAdapter : NSObjectProtocol
  • Ad network adapters interact with the mediation SDK using an object that implements the GADMAdNetworkConnector protocol. The connector object can be used to obtain necessary information for ad requests, and to call back to the mediation SDK on ad request returns and user interactions.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMAdNetworkConnector : GADMediationAdRequest
  • Your adapter must conform to this protocol to provide reward based video ads.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMRewardBasedVideoAdNetworkAdapter : NSObjectProtocol
  • Reward based video ad network adapters interact with the mediation SDK using an object that conforms to the GADMRewardBasedVideoAdNetworkConnector protocol. The connector object can be used to obtain information for ad requests and to call back to the mediation SDK on ad responses and user interactions.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMRewardBasedVideoAdNetworkConnector : GADMediationAdRequest
  • Base protocol for mediated native ads.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMediatedNativeAd : NSObjectProtocol
  • GADMediatedNativeAdDelegate objects handle mediated native ad events.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMediatedNativeAdDelegate : NSObjectProtocol
  • Provides methods used for constructing native app install ads. The adapter must return an object conforming to this protocol for native app install requests.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMediatedNativeAppInstallAd : GADMediatedNativeAd
  • Provides methods used for constructing native ads. The adapter must return an object conforming to this protocol for native ad requests.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMediatedUnifiedNativeAd : NSObjectProtocol
  • Provides information which can be used for making ad requests during mediation.

    Declaration

    Swift

    protocol GADMediationAdRequest : NSObjectProtocol
