Float Label Edit Text in android

Last few days, i search some new UI on Edittext. Finally i found it  and its very awesome.

Float Label EditText

Meanwhile, some of jquery components only do this, but now android achieved it.


 In android, such big form shows the hint text, but after text changed it will be disappear. Using TextView with EditText makes more screen space.

Float Label Edit Text solves your problem. It's Support from version 2.2. It's also the one of best pluses.

In XML:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    xmlns:floatlabel="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto" 
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical">

<com.ind.floatlabeleditext.FloatLabelEditText
    android:id="@+id/username"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:imeOptions="actionNext"
    android:singleLine="true"
    android:hint="User Name"
    android:inputType="text"
    android:textColorHint="#737373"
    floatlabel:floatLabelColor="#852B99"/>
    />
</LinearLayout>

In Java:

FloatLabelEditText userName;
userName  = (FloatLabelEditText)findViewById(R.id.username);
userName.setLabelAnimator(new CustomLabelAnimator());
