B4A Library SD: Floating Button StandOut

(No WRAP, but B4A)
I've been in a new challenge. I reworked a little release published by @JordiCP. Find Here

He entered the Java code taken by GitHub (see https://github.com/henrychuangtw/Android-ChatHead) and wrapped it with "#IF JAVA" inside a B4A module.

With his permission I extended a bit of the B4A code and retouched the Java code (for that little I remember Java) and I realized one thing I longed for: A flying button that always stands out even on other Apps On the Desktop.

You can get the full version by making a donation..

close the notification in the status bar?
i dont think as the notification is a notification for a foregroundservice. Stop the foregroundservice to remove the icon.
Stopping the foreground service stops the Standout-feature too so it would make the lib useless.

Now I'm on vacation, just come back I'll make the customizable notification image. As explained by Don Manfred, it can not be eliminated because the service could otherwise be killed

Here you find the original code, if you delete the service the button will no longer float point.
but if you can do it you can do your own update of the library :p:p

I came back next week:D

The examples work but when I try to add it to my existing app I get error.

Here is the error:

Yes, version 0.06. And can you add notification options, to disable it or change notification text?

No, notification is necessary. I will see in the next update if you can customize the message.
