  • Float on focus

    Float on focus

    Dependant on: https://github.com/marvinlabs/android-floatinglabel-widgets/pull/25

    This is a proof of concept for edit text float behaviour

    adds a flag to float on focus versus float on value present (default)

    output

    If this is cool, i'll proceed with the rest of the widgets.

  • Disable/Enable widgets programmatically

    Disable/Enable widgets programmatically

    I have two ItemPickers on my layout, and I need insert items in picker2 after the user select a item in picker1. When the picker1 was not selected yet, I'd like to disable picker2.

    I've tried myPicker2.setEnabled(false), myPicker2.setActived(false) and myPicker2.setClickable(false) but nothing works. The problem is, when picker2 is empty and is clicked, the app crash:

    java.lang.RuntimeException: StringPickerDialogFragment needs some items to pick from
    

    I wouldn't like to insert a empty item on picker2. Is there a way to disable ItemPickers instead?

    Apache 2.0 License?

    I'm looking to integrate your floating label library (which looks great btw) into an app for a client and was wondering if you'd be willing to put your source under the Apache 2.0 license. Since the source is unlicensed I'm not able to use it in its current state. Here's a link to the license: http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.html

    If you don't want to license it I understand, but this is pretty much the standard license for open source Android projects anyway. Thanks!

  • Is it possible to disable drawableRight for pickers?

    Is it possible to disable drawableRight for pickers?

    Is it possible to programmatically disable drawableLeft for pickers? This is because there is no possibility to adjust heights of Fl...EditText and FL..Picker which are placed in one row (horizontal Linearlayout) because of drawableRight...

  • NPE with FloatingLabelAutoCompleteTextView and AppCompat 22.1.1 on API 21+

    NPE with FloatingLabelAutoCompleteTextView and AppCompat 22.1.1 on API 21+

    When using this library with AppCompat there is a null pointer exception which occurs when running on API 21+. The FloatingLabelAutoCompleteTextView's AutoCompleteTextView input is injected as an AppCompatAutoCompleteTextView by the app compat library. When

    inputWidget.setDropDownBackgroundResource(popupBackground)
    

    is called, AppCompatAutoCompleteTextView tries to get the drawable from it's internal TintManager. The TintManager is not initialized when running on 21+ because of the TintManager.SHOULD_BE_USED is false on 21+. (See TintManager.java) (I haven't found the source for AppCompatAutoCompleteTextView online anywhere to link.)

    My workaround for now is to change

    inputWidget.setDropDownBackgroundResource(popupBackground); //FloatingLabelAutoCompleteTextView.java:90
    

    to

    inputWidget.setDropDownBackgroundDrawable(getContext().getDrawable(popupBackground)); //FloatingLabelAutoCompleteTextView.java:90
    

    I want to verify that this is an AppCompat issue and not a FloatingLabelWidget issue and see if anyone has a better workaround.

  • Limited to minSdkVersion 15

    Limited to minSdkVersion 15

    I added version 1.5.0 of the library to an application project which defines minSdkVersion 9. When I compile the project the following error occurs:

    Error:Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugManifest'. Manifest merger failed : uses-sdk:minSdkVersion 9 cannot be smaller than version 15 declared in library /home/user/projects/MyApp/app/build/intermediates/exploded-aar/com.marvinlabs/android-floatinglabel-widgets/1.5.0/AndroidManifest.xml

    What is the reason you declared minSdkVersion 15? Can you backport the library?


    Further, can you please explicitly state the minSdkVersion in the README.md so people do not spent time trying to integrate it when they target a lower SDK version?

    Compatibility with Saaripaar Validation Library

    Has anyone found a way to make this widget compatible with the Sarippar Android validation library? https://github.com/ragunathjawahar/android-saripaar

    floating labels widgets looks really nice but it does not seem to be compatible with EditText which is what it is replacing.

    I was just wandering if anyone has had this issue before. As I would like to keep using floating labels library. But sadly the convenience of saripaar outweighs the looks of Floating label

  • support for RTL Language

    support for RTL Language

    when trying to use the widget with hebrew string in app:flw_labelText, the hint is positioned with an offset to the right (causing the text to be trunced) also, when the widget is in focus, the label position is also with offset

    layout file in this example:

    <LinearLayout
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:orientation="vertical">
        <FloatingLabelEditText
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:drawablePadding="10dp"
            app:flw_labelText="טקסט בעברית" />
        <FloatingLabelEditText
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            app:flw_labelText="טקסט פשוט שאמור להיות מימין" />
    </LinearLayout>
