Showing Interstitial and Rewarded Ads

When youโ€™re ready to show an ad, you can call the show() method:

heliumInterstitialAd.show()
heliumRewardedAd.show()
heliumInterstitialAd.show();
heliumRewardedAd.show();

๐Ÿ“˜

Note

While Mediation includes a readyToShow() method in our ad objects, we suggest calling show() without the readyToShow() check. The didShow() callback can be used for a similar check.

override fun didShow(placementName: String, error: HeliumAdError?) {
  if (error != null) {
    // An error was detected, gracefully exit and attempt a new ad load.
  } else {
    // Ad is successfully shown.
  }
}
@Override
public void didShow(@NonNull String placementName, @Nullable HeliumAdError error) {
  if (error != null) {
    // An error was detected, gracefully exit and attempt a new ad load.
  } else {
    // Ad is successfully shown.
  }
}

You can implement the InterstitialAdListener or RewardedAdListener interfaces in your project to receive notifications about the lifecycle of the ad display process. See section Delegate Usage for more details.


Showing Banner Ads

Starting in version 3.0.0 of the Mediation SDK, the show() method has been removed. Banners are automatically shown after being attached to a view hierarchy.

If you enable auto-refresh for a banner placement in the dashboard, then the Mediation SDK will apply that setting when the placement is shown.

Any auto refresh changes made on the dashboard will take approximately one hour to take effect and the SDK must be rebooted in order to pick up the changes once they're available.


Releasing Mediation Ads

To clear resources used by Mediation Ads, you can use the destroy method associated with the respective Mediation Ad you have used.

override fun onDestroy() {
  ...
  // Release interstitial ad
  heliumInterstitialAd?.let {
      it.destroy();
      Log("destroyed an existing interstitial");
  }

  // Release rewarded ad
  heliumRewardedAd?.let {
      it.destroy();
      Log("destroyed an existing rewarded");
  }

  // Release banner ad
  heliumBannerAd?.let {
      it.destroy();
      Log("destroyed an existing banner");
  }
  ...
}
@Override
public void onDestroy() {
  ...
  // Release interstitial ad
  if (heliumInterstitialAd != null) {
      heliumInterstitialAd.destroy();
      Log("destroyed an existing interstitial");
  }

  // Release rewarded ad
  if (heliumRewardedAd != null) {
      heliumRewardedAd.destroy();
      Log("destroyed an existing rewarded");
  }

  // Release banner ad
  if (heliumBannerAd != null) {
      heliumBannerAd.destroy();
      Log("destroyed an existing banner");
  }
  ...
}
