Duolingo is a great app (available for both Android and iOS) for language learners across the world. With more than a million active users using the app daily, there is a lot we can learn from its simple yet elegant UI design.

To get started, here is a blog on how we can create Duolingo Style Button with Shadow.

Custom Button with Shadow

In your, Android Studio Project go to res > drawable.

Right-click and click on ‘New’ > ‘Drawable Resource File’

Name the file as ‘custom_button.xml’

Now, add the following lines of XML code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <!-- Bottom 15dp Shadow -->
    <item>
        <shape  android:shape="rectangle">

<!--            Button Shadow Color -->
            <solid android:color="#52772C" />
            <corners android:radius="7dp" />

        </shape>
    </item>

    <!-- White Top color -->
    <item android:bottom="15px">

        <shape  android:shape="rectangle">
            <padding android:bottom="10dp"
                android:top="10dp"
                android:left="20dp"
                android:right="20dp"/>

<!--            Button TOP Color -->
            <solid android:color="#7CB342" />
            <corners android:radius="7dp" />
        </shape>

    </item>


</layer-list>

Now go to Activity or fragment and create a button.

To this button add a background attribute as:

android:background="@drawable/custom_button"

Your complete code for the button should look as follows:

 <Button
        android:id="@+id/button"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Duolingo Style"
        android:layout_above="@+id/btn_2"
        android:layout_margin="20dp"
        android:textColor="@android:color/white"
        android:background="@drawable/custom_button"/>

Android Image Button with Text Example | Java & Kotlin

android image button with text

Android Image Button with Text Example in both Java and Kotlin. In this blog learn how to create an Image Button with text in Android Studio using XML code.

Though we have a widget in Android Studio known as Android ImageButton, but an ImageButton can’t have an image and a text together.

So if you’re building an app where you want to show the user the image and text both on a button, there is a smarter way to achieve the result as shown below using a RelativeLayout in Android.

Android Image Button with Text

Understanding Image Button Layout

To create a custom image button with a text we will create a relative layout with a custom background. Inside the relative layout, there will be an ImageView and a textView widget.

Creating a custom background for Button

We will first start with crating a custom background for our image button. Here is the XML code to create custom background.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >
    <item android:state_pressed="true" >
        <shape android:shape="rectangle"  >
            <corners android:radius="3dip" />
            <stroke android:width="1dip" android:color="#5e7974" />
            <gradient android:angle="-90" android:startColor="@color/colorAccent" android:endColor="@color/colorAccent"  />
        </shape>
    </item>
    <item android:state_focused="true">
        <shape android:shape="rectangle"  >
            <corners android:radius="3dp" />
            <stroke android:width="1dip" android:color="#5e7974" />
            <solid android:color="#58857e"/>
        </shape>
    </item>
    <item >
        <shape android:shape="rectangle"  >
            <corners android:radius="7dip" />
            <stroke android:width="0dip" android:color="#5e7974" />
            <gradient android:angle="-90" android:startColor="@color/colorAccent" android:endColor="@color/colorAccent"  />
        </shape>
    </item>
</selector>

Android Image Button (XML Code)

Now lets code the android image button with textView inside it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">

    <RelativeLayout
        android:id="@+id/image_btn"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_margin="10dp"
        android:background="@drawable/round_btn"
        tools:layout_editor_absoluteX="9dp"
        tools:layout_editor_absoluteY="26dp">

        <ImageView
            android:layout_margin="10dp"
            android:id="@+id/image"
            android:layout_alignParentStart="true"
            android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
            android:layout_width="50dp"
            android:layout_height="50dp"
            android:src="@drawable/ic_computer_black_24dp"/>

        <TextView
            android:layout_centerVertical="true"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_toEndOf="@+id/image"
            android:layout_margin="10dp"
            android:fontFamily="sans-serif-smallcaps"
            android:textStyle="bold"
            android:paddingStart="20dp"
            android:paddingEnd="20dp"
            android:text="Connect to Laptop"
            android:textAllCaps="false"
            android:textColor="#FFF"
            android:textSize="20sp" />

    </RelativeLayout>

</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

As you can interpret from the code above, we have used an android relative layout inside which we have an ImageView and a TextView both together formaing an Image Button for our project.

Custom Image Button Java Code

Here is an OnClickListener Java Code for our custom image button

package com.aaveti.myapplication;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.RelativeLayout;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        RelativeLayout compBtn = findViewById(R.id.image_btn);
        compBtn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                showToast("I am an Image Button");
            }
        });

    }

    void showToast(String msg){
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,"The day of the week is " + msg,Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
    }
}

Custom Image Button Kotlin Code

Here is an OnClickListener Kotlin Code for our custom image button

package com.aaveti.myapplication;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.RelativeLayout;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        RelativeLayout compBtn = findViewById(R.id.image_btn);
        compBtn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                showToast("I am an Image Button");
            }
        });

    }

    void showToast(String msg){
        Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,"The day of the week is " + msg,Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
    }
}

TaDa! That’s all. You’re done with creating your own Custom Image Button for your Android Project.

Android Button Animation Top 8 Styles you can apply in Android Studio

android button animation

Android Button Animation is a great way to provide a better user experience to your app users. In this blog learn about different types of animation styles you can apply to your Android buttons widget.

Android Button Animation

Getting Started

To get started with this tutorial from scratch you can create an empty android studio activity else you can skip this step and proceed further if you are already working on some Android Studio project and want to learn about Android button animation.

Creating Layout file

In an empty layout file, create a simple android button widget. Code for the following is as follow:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/hello_world"
        android:layout_width="250dp"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Hello World!"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintLeft_toLeftOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintRight_toRightOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>

Coding the Android Button Animation

Now first create the Button object in your java class and lets code their animation below:

Transparency Effect (Alpha)

To get the transparency effect in your android buttons like shown in the Medium app above, we play with alpha values of our buttons.

First set the alpha value of your button to zero and then animate the alpha value to 1.0f to get complete 100% opacity. Note here you can change the curation of the animation as well by using the setDuration function. See the code below:

        //findviewbyID
        Button helloWorld = findViewById(R.id.hello_world);

        //Set button alpha to zero
        helloWorld.setAlpha(0f);
        
        //Animate the alpha value to 1f and set duration as 1.5 secs.
        helloWorld.animate().alpha(1f).setDuration(1500);

Move the button (Translation)

To move your button like we have shown in the Medium example app above, we use the translation property i.e., transationX and translationY.

Android Button Animation
Android Button Animation

To achieve an animation like the Medium app buttons, we will first use setTranslationY to change position of our button on the Y asix and then animate its position to previous location by using translationByY.

        helloWorld = findViewById(R.id.hello_world);

        helloWorld.setAlpha(0f);
        helloWorld.setTranslationY(50);
        
        helloWorld.animate().alpha(1f).translationYBy(-50).setDuration(1500);

translationX vs translationXBy

While coding you may have noticed that there are two different properties of translation for both X and Y i.e., translationX vs translationXBy.

translationX is used to animate the Android button to that particular point on the activity where as translationXBy animates the Android Button by the amount mentioned.

Rotate the Button

If you wish to rotate the button you can easily do this by using the rotation property rotation();

helloWorld = findViewById(R.id.hello_world);
helloWorld.animate().rotation(120).setDuration(3000);

Rotate on Axis

If you want to rotate the button on axis i.e, on X axis or on the Y axis, you can achieve the same by using rotationX or rotationY.

helloWorld = findViewById(R.id.hello_world);
helloWorld.animate().rotationX(120).setDuration(3000);

Scale the Button

If you wish to scale your button then you can use scaleXBy or scaleYBy property. Here is an example for the same:

helloWorld = findViewById(R.id.hello_world);
helloWorld.animate().scaleYBy(1).setDuration(3000);

Set Delay

You can easily set Delay using the setStartDelay function.

helloWorld = findViewById(R.id.hello_world);
helloWorld.setAlpha(0f);
helloWorld.setTranslationY(50);
       helloWorld.animate().alpha(1f).translationYBy(-50).setStartDelay(200).setDuration(1500);

Set Actions

One can easily set the start or the end actions after animation starts or gets finished by using withStartAction or with EndAction methods.

//End Action

helloWorld.animate().alpha(1f).translationYBy(-50).setStartDelay(200).withEndAction(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                //End Action
                Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,"Animating Button",Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
        }).setDuration(1500);

TaDa Viola! So here we are done with learning 8 different animation actions you apply to your Android Button Animation.

How to get Android Custom Button Shape?

Android Custom Button Shape
Android Custom Button Shape

If you’re someone who would like to create your own android custom button shape and style, here is way you can do. We’ve created a custom button shape and shared its tutorial below!

To achieve this, you’ll have to first create a new android drawable resource file.

To create this file, in ‘Android’ section of Project Panel on the left, go to app > res > drawable

Right click on ‘drawable’ folder and select ‘New > Drawable Resource File’

Create a new file named ’rounded_rectangle’

In this new file write the following line of code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<shape android:shape="rectangle"

    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <!--Radius of all four corners-->
    <corners
        android:bottomRightRadius="50dp"
        android:bottomLeftRadius="10dp"
        android:topLeftRadius="50dp"
        android:topRightRadius="10dp"/>

            <!--Stroke size and color-->
            <stroke android:width="3dp"
                android:color="@color/colorAccent" />

            <!--Fill Color of the Button-->
            <gradient android:angle="-90"
                android:startColor="#000000"
                android:endColor="#000000"  />
        </shape>

Once done, go back to your main xml file which contains the button and add following attribute to it:

android:background="@drawable/rounded_rectangle"

To achieve what we have got in the image above, add following lines of code:

   <Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="56dp"
        android:textColor="@color/colorAccent"
        android:textSize="17sp"
        android:paddingTop="15dp"
        android:paddingBottom="15dp"
        android:paddingStart="25dp"
        android:paddingEnd="25dp"
        android:focusable="true"
        android:textAllCaps="false"
        android:background="@drawable/rounded_btn"
        android:text="View Reports"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

Note:

  • In case you would like to change the button color, you’ll have to change the android:startColor=”#00000000″ and android:endColor=”#00000000″ attribute in rounded_rectangle.xml file.
  • In case you would like to change the stroke size, you’ll have to change the android:width=”3dp” attribute.
  • To change the shape of button you’ll have to change the following attributes!
<corners
android:bottomRightRadius="50dp"
android:bottomLeftRadius="10dp"
android:topLeftRadius="50dp"
android:topRightRadius="10dp"/>

To achieve this basic design style, write following lines of code:

<Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="56dp"
        android:textColor="@color/white"
        android:textSize="17sp"
        android:padding="20dp"
        android:textAllCaps="false"
        android:backgroundTint="@color/colorAccent"
        android:text="View Reports"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

2. Android Button Rounded Rectangle Design

    android:shape="rectangle">

    <corners android:radius="50dp"/> // if you want clear round shape then make radius size is half of your  button`s height.

    <solid android:color="@color/colorAccent"/> // Button Colour
    <padding
        android:bottom="10dp"
        android:left="25dp"
        android:right="25dp"
        android:top="10dp"/>

</shape>

Once done, go back to your main xml file which contains the button and add following attribute to it:

android:background="@drawable/rounded_rectangle"

To achieve what we have got in the image above, add following lines of code:

 <Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"

                android:startColor="#FF9800"
                android:endColor="#FFC107" />

        </shape>
    </item>

</selector>

Once done, go back to your main xml file which contains the button and add following attribute to it:

android:background="@drawable/rounded_rectangle"

To achieve what we have got in the image above, add following lines of code:

   <Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="56dp"
        android:textColor="@color/white"
        android:textSize="17sp"
        android:paddingTop="15dp"
        android:paddingBottom="15dp"
        android:paddingStart="25dp"
        android:paddingEnd="25dp"
        android:focusable="true"
        android:textAllCaps="false"
        android:background="@drawable/rounded_btn"
        android:text="View Reports"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

Note: In case you would like to change the button color, you’ll have to change the shape color attribute in rounded_rectangle.xml file.

5. Empty Button Design

Android Button Design
Android Button Design

One of our favorite, the empty button design style. As shown above, in this button design xml file we have added radius to make button rounded and filled it with the transparent color (” #00000000 “) !

To achieve this, you’ll have to first create a new android drawable resource file.

To create this file, in ‘Android’ section of Project Panel on the left, go to app > res > drawable

Right click on ‘drawable’ folder and select ‘New > Drawable Resource File’

Create a new file named ’rounded_rectangle’

In this new file write the following line of code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<shape android:shape="rectangle"

    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

            <corners android:radius="50dp" />

            <stroke android:width="3dp"
                android:color="@color/colorAccent" />

            <gradient android:angle="-90"
                android:startColor="#00000000"
                android:endColor="#00000000"  />
        </shape>

Once done, go back to your main xml file which contains the button and add following attribute to it:

android:background="@drawable/rounded_rectangle"

To achieve what we have got in the image above, add following lines of code:

    <Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="56dp"
        android:textColor="@color/colorAccent"
        android:textSize="17sp"
        android:paddingTop="15dp"
        android:paddingBottom="15dp"
        android:paddingStart="25dp"
        android:paddingEnd="25dp"
        android:focusable="true"
        android:textAllCaps="false"
        android:background="@drawable/rounded_btn"
        android:text="View Reports"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

Note: In case you would like to change the button color, you’ll have to change the shape color attribute in rounded_rectangle.xml file.

6. Custom Button Design

If you’re someone who would like to create your own custom design and style, here is way you can do. We’ve created a custom shape and shared its tutorial below!

To achieve this, you’ll have to first create a new android drawable resource file.

To create this file, in ‘Android’ section of Project Panel on the left, go to app > res > drawable

Right click on ‘drawable’ folder and select ‘New > Drawable Resource File’

Create a new file named ’rounded_rectangle’

In this new file write the following line of code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<shape android:shape="rectangle"

    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <!--Radius of all four corners-->
    <corners
        android:bottomRightRadius="50dp"
        android:bottomLeftRadius="10dp"
        android:topLeftRadius="50dp"
        android:topRightRadius="10dp"/>

            <!--Stroke size and color-->
            <stroke android:width="3dp"
                android:color="@color/colorAccent" />

            <!--Fill Color of the Button-->
            <gradient android:angle="-90"
                android:startColor="#00000000"
                android:endColor="#00000000"  />
        </shape>

Once done, go back to your main xml file which contains the button and add following attribute to it:

android:background="@drawable/rounded_rectangle"

To achieve what we have got in the image above, add following lines of code:

   <Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:layout_marginBottom="56dp"
        android:textColor="@color/colorAccent"
        android:textSize="17sp"
        android:paddingTop="15dp"
        android:paddingBottom="15dp"
        android:paddingStart="25dp"
        android:paddingEnd="25dp"
        android:focusable="true"
        android:textAllCaps="false"
        android:background="@drawable/rounded_btn"
        android:text="View Reports"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent" />

Note:

  • In case you would like to change the button color, you’ll have to change the android:startColor=”#00000000″ and android:endColor=”#00000000″ attribute in rounded_rectangle.xml file.
  • In case you would like to change the stroke size, you’ll have to change the android:width=”3dp” attribute.
  • To change the shape of button you’ll have to change the following attributes!
<corners
android:bottomRightRadius="50dp"
android:bottomLeftRadius="10dp"
android:topLeftRadius="50dp"
android:topRightRadius="10dp"/>

Android Intent Flags: Everything You Need to Know

android intent flags

Android Intent Flags are used to signify the state or type of an Android Intent. Android Intent flags are set using the Android Context.putExtra() method and can be retrieved using the getFlags() method on the Android intent object.

android intent flags
android intent flags

They allow you to be very specific about the actions you want your app to take and can help avoid ambiguity. There are different types of Android Intent Flags which will be explained in this blog post with examples.

Introduction: Android Intent Flags

Android Intent Flags are a set of special bits that you can set on an Intent to change its behavior. They allow you to control things like whether the Intent should start a new activity, or whether it should return results.

How to Set Android Intent Flags

You can set an Android Intent Flag by using the Android Context.putExtra() method. This method takes two arguments: the flag you want to set, and a value (usually true or false) that indicates whether the flag should be set.

Type of Android Intent Flags

FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK

If set, this activity will become the start of a new task on this history stack. A task (from the activity that started it to the next task activity) is a sequence of activities that share the same root activity. This flag is generally used by activities that provide a “home” button to the task, such as an email application.

FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP

If set, and the activity being launched is already running in the current task, then instead of launching a new instance of that activity, all of the other activities on top of it will be closed and this Intent will be delivered to the (now on top) old activity as a new Intent. (e.g. document browsing where clicking on a listed document would lead to viewing that document, possibly in another activity).

If FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK is also set, the task containing this activity will be brought to the foreground and given focus instead of being created from scratch. Otherwise, a new task will be created for it. This flag can not be used when the Intent’s target is within your own task; if so, no changes will happen (and you will receive an “IllegalArgumentException”).

FLAG_ACTIVITY_SINGLE_TOP

If set, the system will not create a new instance of the activity if it is already running at the top of the current task. However, if an instance would be created in a separate task, that instance is still brought to the front and receives the new intent, resulting in two instances running side-by-side in different tasks.

This is generally used only with activities that are part of a tabbed UI; using this flag with those activities allows each tab to have its own unique history stack maintained by Android, rather than having all tabs share one history stack. This flag is not set by default.

FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_WHEN_TASK_RESET

If set in an Intent passed to Context.startActivity(), this flag will cause any existing task that would be associated with the activity to be cleared before the activity is started. That is, the activity becomes the new root of an otherwise empty task, and any old activities are destroyed. This can only be used in conjunction with FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK; if it is not set, then a new instance of the activity will be added to an existing task as usual.

If it is set, and Android encounters the same class when restoring a task, it will instantiate a new instance of that class and deliver the Intent to that instance through its onNewIntent() method (instead of simply delivering the Intent to the existing instance as is normal behavior).

This means you must set this flag when you want a new instance created; if not set, Android may instead use your existing Activity. Note also that this flag will cause any activities under the old task root to be destroyed when the last activity in them is finished or becomes empty (due to back navigation away from them), since they are no longer part of an active task.

FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_DOCUMENT

Added in API level 21. If set, and this activity is launching in a new task, the system will not launch any activities in between the caller and this one. In other words, a new activity stack will be generated for this one through FLAG_ACTIVITY_TASK_ON_HOME. This is like saying all of those launched activities are “transparent” (they aren’t really; Android is just not going to keep track of them). Then, when the user presses Back from this activity, they will go back to the home screen, with no trace of the called-upon activity remaining.

FLAG_ACTIVITY_MULTIPLE_TASK

Added in API level 21. If set, and this activity is launching in a new task, the system will launch the top activity in an existing task with the same Affinity as if FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK was used.

That is, Android will look for an existing task with the same affinity to re-use before it creates a new one. This is useful when activities are part of a document flow, where some activities should only exist within that document (e.g. details pages) and others should be reachable from anywhere else within the app (e.g. browse or search).

Note that this flag must be set on all activities that can appear under these circumstances; setting it on just one activity in a task may result in lost user data as Android fails to correctly restore state when going back.

FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_WHEN_TASK_RESET

Added in API level 11. If set in an Intent passed to Context::startActivity(), this flag will cause any existing task that would be associated with the activity to be cleared before the activity is started. That is, the activity becomes the new root of an otherwise empty task, and any old activities are destroyed to make way for it. This can only be used in conjunction with FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK; if it is not set, then a new instance of the activity will always be created (as normal) even if there is an existing task running.

FLAG_ACTIVITY_LAUNCHED_FROM_HISTORY

Added in API level 11. If set in an Intent passed to Context::startActivity(), this flag indicates that the caller wants the activity to be launched as if it was launched from history (its task with all previous activities will be re-created and the activity will be placed on top). That is, generally speaking a new instance of the activity will not be created. This flag can not be used when the Intent’s target is within your own task; if so, no changes will happen (and you will receive an “IllegalArgumentException”).

Conclusion

Android Intent Flags are powerful tools that can help you control the behavior of your app. Use them wisely to avoid ambiguity and to get the most out of your Android app development!

Constraint Layout in Android: What is It and How Does It Compare to Other Layouts?

constraint layout in android

What is constraint layout in Android? How does it compare to LinearLayout and RelativeLayout? In this blog post, we will answer all of these questions and more.

Constraint layout is a relatively new layout type that was introduced with Android Studio 3.0. It offers many advantages over other layout types, including increased flexibility and performance. We will also show you how to use constraint layout in your own projects!

What is Constraint Layout in Android?

So, what exactly is constraint layout? Constraint layout is a type of layout that allows you to position and size widgets in a flexible way. Unlike LinearLayout and RelativeLayout, which are both restricted to two dimensions, constraint layout can be used in three dimensions. This means that you can create complex layouts with ease!

One of the biggest advantages of constraint layout is its performance. Because it doesn’t have to rely on nested view groups, it can often avoid the common performance issues that plague other layouts. In addition, constraint layout is much more flexible than other types of layouts. This flexibility comes at a cost though; because it’s so flexible, constraint layout can be more difficult to use than other layouts. Nevertheless, we think it’s worth the effort!

If you’re ready to learn more about constraint layout, then head on over to our tutorial on how to use constraint layout in Android Studio. We’ll show you everything you need to know, from creating a basic layout to adding constraints and making your layout responsive. Trust us, once you get the hang of it, you’ll never want to go back to using anything else!

How to Use Constraint Layout in Android

Now that we’ve talked about what constraint layout is, let’s learn how to use it in Android Studio. Constraint layout is a powerful tool, but it can be tricky to use if you’re not familiar with it. That’s why we’ve put together this tutorial on using constraintlayout in Android Studio.

We’ll walk you through everything from creating a basic layout to adding constraints and making your layout responsive. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll be an expert at using constraintlayout! So let’s get started.

Creating a New Project in Android Studio

First, open Android Studio and create a new project. We’ll call our project “ConstraintLayoutExample“. Once you’ve created your project, open the activity_main.xml file and delete the default TextView. We won’t be needing it for this example.

Next, drag a Button widget from the Palette into the design editor. Position it in the center of the screen and give it a label like “Click me!”. Your layout should now look something like this:

Constraint Layout in Android example
Constraint Layout in Android example

Adding Constraints

Now that we’ve talked about what constraint layout is and how it compares to other layouts, let’s learn how to use it in Android Studio! First, add the following dependency to your build.gradle file:

dependencies {
     implementation 'com.android.support.constraint:constraint-layout:x.y.z' // Replace with the latest version!
}

Next, open your activity_main.xml file and add the following code

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout 
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/button"
            android:text="Sample button"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

    </androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

Now that we’ve added the constraint layout, let’s add some constraints to our Button! We want our Button to be horizontally and vertically centered in the screen, so we’ll add constraints for both the left and right sides of the Button, as well as the top and bottom.

To do this, select your Button in the design editor. Then, click on the “Infer Constraints” button in the toolbar. This will automatically generate constraints for your view. Alternatively, you can also hold down the “Shift” key while dragging from one side of the view to another to create constraints.

Once you’ve added your constraints, your layout should look something like this:

constraint layout in android
constraint layout in android
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/button"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Sample button"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

If everything looks good, go ahead and run your app! You should see your Button appear in the center of the screen. Congratulations, you’ve just created your first constraint layout!

Making Your Layout Responsive

One of the great things about constraint layout is that it makes it easy to create responsive layouts. To see how this works, let’s add another view to our layout.

This time, we’ll add an ImageView and position it below our Button. We want the ImageView to be horizontally centered and have a margin of 16dp from the top and bottom of the screen.

Adding Constraints

To add constraints to our ImageView, select it in the design editor and click on the “Infer Constraints” button in the toolbar. Then, add a margin of 16dp from the top and bottom of the screen. Your layout should now look something like this:

imageview constraint layout in android
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/button"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Sample button"
        app:layout_constraintBottom_toBottomOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent" />

    <ImageView
        android:id="@+id/imageView"
        android:layout_width="100dp"
        android:layout_height="100dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="16dp"
        android:src="@drawable/ic_launcher_background"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@+id/button" />

</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

If you run your app on a device with a large screen, you’ll see that the ImageView is centered in the middle of the screen. However, if you run your app on a device with a smaller screen, you’ll see that the ImageView is moved to the top of the screen and centered there. This is because we’ve added constraints for the top and bottom of the ImageView, so when there’s not enough space to display both views side by side, Android will move the ImageView above the Button.

Adding Constraints for Orientation Changes

Now let’s say we want our Button to be below our ImageView when we change the orientation of our device. To do this, we need to add a constraint for the left side of the Button and remove the constraint for the top side.

Adding Constraints

If you run your app on a device with a large screen, you’ll see that the Button is still centered in the middle of the screen. However, if you change the orientation of your device to portrait mode, you’ll see that the Button is now below the ImageView.

This is because we’ve added a constraint for the left side of the Button, so when there’s not enough space to display both views side by side in landscape mode, Android will move the Button below the ImageView.

Constraint Layout vs Linear Layout in Android

Now that we’ve talked about what constraint layout is, let’s compare it to another popular layout type: LinearLayout. LinearLayout is the most basic type of layout in Android, and it arranges its children in a single column or row. This can be useful for simple layouts, but it quickly becomes limiting as your layout becomes more complex.

In contrast, constraint layout gives you much more control over how your widgets are arranged. With constraintlayout, you can position widgets anywhere on the screen, not just in a single column or row. You can also specify constraints between widgets, so that they resize and move together as the user resizes the screen. This is perfect for creating responsive layouts!

So which one should you use? If you need a simple layout, then LinearLayout is probably all you need. But if you want more control over your layout, or if you need to create a responsive layout, then constraintlayout is the way to go.

Constraint Layout vs Relative Layout in Android

Another popular layout type is RelativeLayout. RelativeLayout lets you position widgets relative to one another, or to the parent layout. This can be useful for certain types of layouts, but it can also be confusing and difficult to get right.

In contrast, constraintlayout gives you much more control over how your widgets are arranged. With constraintlayout, you can specify constraints between widgets, so that they resize and move together as the user resizes the screen. This is perfect for creating responsive layouts!

So which one should you use? If you need a simple layout, then LinearLayout or RelativeLayout might be all you need. But if you want more control over your layout, or if you need to create a responsive layout, then constraintlayout is the way to go.

Constraint Layout vs Other Layout Types in Android

There are many other types of layouts in Android, but constraintlayout is definitely one of the most popular. This is because constraintlayout gives you much more control over how your widgets are arranged. With constraintlayout, you can specify constraints between widgets, so that they resize and move together as the user resizes the screen. This is perfect for creating responsive layouts!

So if you need a layout that is flexible and easy to use, then constraintlayout is definitely the way to go.

And that’s it! You now know how to use constraint layout to create responsive layouts for your Android app. For more information on constraint layout, be sure to check out the official documentation. Thanks for reading!

I hope this helped you understand Constraint Layout a little better.
