Android EditText Background Example
Author : Ishtek

Setup Eclipse with Android ADT Plugin for test/code environment (by using Android API Level 7 and Emulator).
P.S- Above page is having around 14 images, download size could be around 700KB.

This Page and/or example code is using Android API Level 7 and tested using corresponding Emulator only.
For latest information please refer Android Official website.

Using Android API Level : 7 In this example we shall set background of an EditText that of an image as shown below: Activity screen shows on screen as shown below: activity_decorated_edit_text_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent"> <EditText android:id="@+id/edtText" android:layout_width="150dp" android:layout_height="50dp" tools:context=".DecoratedEditTextMainActivity" android:background="@drawable/sample" android:textColor="#FFFFFF" android:textSize="30dp" android:textStyle="bold"/> </RelativeLayout>
DecoratedEditTextMainActivity.java
package com.example.decoratededittext; import android.app.Activity; import android.os.Bundle; import android.view.Menu; public class DecoratedEditTextMainActivity extends Activity { @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_decorated_edit_text_main); } @Override public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) { getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_decorated_edit_text_main, menu); return true; } }
Extending this example to include ways to achieve various shapes for this edit text field, by using shapes as background drawable, as shown below: Oval shaped edit text widget. There would be no change in the Java code of the main activity, but there would be another xml file "sample_drawable.xml" is created and placed inside res/drawable folder of the project in Eclipse workspace. sample_drawable.xml
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="oval" android:thickness="5dp"> <size android:width="150dp" android:height="50dp"/> <solid android:color="#FFFFFF"/> <corners android:topLeftRadius="24dp" android:bottomLeftRadius="20dp"/> <stroke android:width="5dp" android:color="#FF00FF"/> </shape>
And the main activity layout file is also changed as shown below: activity_decorated_edit_text_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:background="#aabbaa" > <TextView android:id="@+id/txtLbl" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="Enter Name:" android:textSize="20dp" /> <EditText android:id="@+id/edtText" android:layout_width="200dp" android:layout_height="50dp" tools:context=".DecoratedEditTextMainActivity" android:background="@drawable/sample_drawable" android:textColor="#FF00FF" android:textSize="20dp" android:textStyle="bold" android:textScaleX="2" android:paddingLeft="10dp" android:layout_below="@+id/txtLbl" /> </RelativeLayout>
This example is again revised to change the edit text widget to something like as follows: sample_drawable.xml
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="rectangle" android:thickness="5dp"> <size android:width="150dp" android:height="50dp"/> <solid android:color="#FFFFFF"/> <corners android:topLeftRadius="24dp" android:bottomLeftRadius="20dp"/> <stroke android:width="5dp" android:color="#FF00FF"/> </shape>
