material-singleinputform

A single EditText instead of a classical form.

This Library is a library implementation of flavienlaurent's "Single input form"

Very inspired by the Minimal Format Interface.

Implement any form with only one EditText. The idea here is to pack a multiple input form in one field. As a result, the user input is easier and a more fluent process.

Also, TextSwitcher got completely rediscovered to animate the form: title, error message. It's very basic but simple to use.

Here is a video demonstrating a sample form: http://youtu.be/A99g6NDvn_w

Demo

A demo app is available on Google Play:

How-To-Use

Step 1: Your Activity must extend SingleInputFormActivity:

public class MainActivity extends SingleInputFormActivity {
 //...
}

Step 2: Implement abstract methods:

public class MainActivity extends SingleInputFormActivity{
 private static final String DATA_KEY_EXAMPLE = "example";
 
 @Override
 protected List<Step> getSteps(Context context){
  List<Step> steps = new ArrayList<Step>();
  steps.add(new TextStep(
    context,
    DATA_KEY_EXAMPLE,
    InputType.TYPE_CLASS_TEXT,
    R.string.example,
    R.string.example_error,
    R.string.example_details)
  );
  //Add more steps here...
  return steps;
 }
 
 @Override
 protected void onFormFinished(Bundle data){
  //Get the form data
  String text = TextStep.text(data, DATA_KEY_EXAMPLE);
  //...
 }
}

Step 3: Theme:

<style name="YourThemeForSingleInputFormActivity" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
 <!-- Used for: input field background -->
 <item name="colorPrimary">@color/material_bordeaux_500</item>
 
 <!-- Used for: form progress color, status bar color (API 21+) -->
 <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/material_bordeaux_700</item>
 
 <!-- Used for: title text color, error text color -->
 <item name="android:textColorPrimary">@color/material_bordeaux_800</item>
 
 <!-- Used for: details text color, step indicator text color -->
 <item name="android:textColorSecondary">@color/material_black_54</item>
 
 <!-- Used for: input text color, input widget color -->
 <item name="android:textColorPrimaryInverse">@color/material_white_100</item>
 
 <!-- Used for: input widget color -->
 <item name="android:textColorSecondaryInverse">@color/material_white_70</item>
</style>
