I made a simple Xposed module which causes all notifications to be initially shown in their expanded state inside the notification drawer. (The stock behaviour is that only the first notification is expanded.) Notifications may still be contracted manually and will stay that way.

There is no settings activity. This module just does one thing for now.

Requires Jelly Bean or above with the Xposed framework installed.

Props to @rovo89 for the awesome Xposed framework!

You can grab it from its Xposed Module Repository page.

Great job, this is a thing I wanted for a long time, and is one of the last 3 things I want to see implemented with xposed (the others can be done without, but AFAIK xposed modules don't use as much ram as standalone apps)

Mine would collapse just before clicking whichever button and I would end up clicking the next notification down. I'd have to expand it twice - the second time, it wouldn't collapse.

Great job! I like this module!
I have 2 remarks :
1. Could you let the "permanent" notification behaves like by default? Or offer the option in a settings page?
2. Ideally, there would be a settings page in which we could choose the behavior for each app/package independently...

Thanks

Do permanent notifications have special behaviour in regards to being expanded or not? Let me know exactly what you mean and I can investigate!

For your second suggestion, I have already planned to do this, but unfortunately I think it will have to wait at least until the new year. I have already been naughty working on these modules when I have a million other things to do!

Thanks for the quick reply!

1/ Permanent notifications: they behave differently than other notifications, yes.
Default android behavior (at least here on my JB4.1.2 TouchWiz ROM): you cannot expand them with fingers
With your module: they stay expanded, but then you cannot wrap them with fingers
It's like there is no other interaction possible other than clicking on them. You cannot swipe them away, and you cannot expand/wrap.
So the issue with the module is that the notification stays there wide expanded when sometimes you don't need it, and there is nothing to do about it: it will stay expanded.

Solutions?
A. Ideally... if I can dream... would be that your module allow expand/wrap interaction with these permanent notifications...
Is that possible at all???

B. Backup solution would be to allow a setting to choose to expand or not these permanent notifications

C. A 3rd way to go would be to just let permanent notifications with their default system behavior. After all, we mainly need your module for the temporary notifications: emails, test msg, etc...

Solution C is probably the easiest to code? And would be enough for users (at least for me).


2/ No hurry for the second suggestion. Good to know you plan having this. Will be patient!

If it were put to a vote, I'd vote for C - ignore persistent notifications. B as a second choice. But either way, they need to be manually expandable. I just tried and, he's right, they are not expandable.
