Implementing basic ads in Android

To display a full-screen interstitial ad using the UnityAds API:

  1. Initialize the SDK.

  2. Use the load API to load an ad for the desired Ad Unit.

  3. Once the ad loads, you can then display it using the show API.

Interstitial ads example

Copy
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.util.Log;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import com.unity3d.ads.IUnityAdsLoadListener;
import com.unity3d.ads.IUnityAdsShowListener;
import com.unity3d.ads.UnityAdsShowOptions;
import com.unity3d.ads.example.R;

import com.unity3d.ads.IUnityAdsInitializationListener;
import com.unity3d.ads.UnityAds;

public class ShowInterstitialAd extends AppCompatActivity implements IUnityAdsInitializationListener  {

  private String unityGameID = "1234567";
  private Boolean testMode = true;
  private String adUnitId = "video";

  private IUnityAdsLoadListener loadListener = new IUnityAdsLoadListener() {
     @Override
     public void onUnityAdsAdLoaded(String placementId) {
        UnityAds.show((Activity)getApplicationContext(), adUnitId, new UnityAdsShowOptions(), showListener);
     }

     @Override
     public void onUnityAdsFailedToLoad(String placementId, UnityAds.UnityAdsLoadError error, String message) {
        Log.e("UnityAdsExample", "Unity Ads failed to load ad for " + placementId + " with error: [" + error + "] " + message);
     }
  };

  private IUnityAdsShowListener showListener = new IUnityAdsShowListener() {
     @Override
     public void onUnityAdsShowFailure(String placementId, UnityAds.UnityAdsShowError error, String message) {
        Log.e("UnityAdsExample", "Unity Ads failed to show ad for " + placementId + " with error: [" + error + "] " + message);
     }

     @Override
     public void onUnityAdsShowStart(String placementId) {
        Log.v("UnityAdsExample", "onUnityAdsShowStart: " + placementId);
     }

     @Override
     public void onUnityAdsShowClick(String placementId) {
        Log.v("UnityAdsExample", "onUnityAdsShowClick: " + placementId);
     }

     @Override
     public void onUnityAdsShowComplete(String placementId, UnityAds.UnityAdsShowCompletionState state) {
        Log.v("UnityAdsExample", "onUnityAdsShowComplete: " + placementId);
     }
  };

  @Override
  protected void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState) {
     super.onCreate (savedInstanceState);
     setContentView (R.layout.activity_main);
     // Initialize the SDK:
     UnityAds.initialize(getApplicationContext(), unityGameID, testMode, this);
  }

  @Override
  public void onInitializationComplete() {
     DisplayInterstitialAd();
  }

  @Override
  public void onInitializationFailed(UnityAds.UnityAdsInitializationError error, String message) {
     Log.e("UnityAdsExample", "Unity Ads initialization failed with error: [" + error + "] " + message);
  }

// Implement a function to load an interstitial ad. The ad will start to show once the ad has been loaded.
  public void DisplayInterstitialAd () {
     UnityAds.load(adUnitId, loadListener);
  }
}

Note: In this example, you can invoke DisplayInterstitialAd from anywhere in your game you wish to show an interstitial ad as long as Unity Ads has successfully initialized.
