MaterialSpinner

Spinner with Material Design

This library provides you a Spinner with the Material style. You can use it like any regular Spinner. Add floating label text, hint and error messages.

Gradle Dependency

Use this dependency in your build.gradle file to reference this library in your project

compile 'com.github.ganfra:material-spinner:2.0.0'

If you use other libraries requiring appcompat-v7 like MaterialEditText make sure to exclude them if you have issue at compile time :

compile ('com.github.ganfra:material-spinner:2.0.0'){
        exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'appcompat-v7'
}

Thanks

Many thanks to Matías Dumrauf to help me supporting this library!

Usages

In the xml :

<fr.ganfra.materialspinner.MaterialSpinner
        android:id="@+id/spinner"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
        app:ms_multiline="false"
        app:ms_dropDownHintView="@layout/my_custom_dropdown_hint_item_layout"
        app:ms_hintView="@layout/my_custom_hint_item_layout"
        app:ms_hint="hint"
        app:ms_enableFloatingLabel="false"
        app:ms_enableErrorLabel="false"
        app:ms_floatingLabelText="floating label"
        app:ms_baseColor="@color/base"
        app:ms_highlightColor="@color/highlight"
        app:ms_errorColor="@color/error"
        app:ms_typeface="typeface.ttf"
        app:ms_thickness="2dp"
        app:ms_hintColor="@color/hint"
        app:ms_arrowColor="@color/arrow"
        app:ms_arrowSize="16dp"
        app:ms_alignLabels="false"
        app:ms_floatingLabelColor="@color/floating_label"/>

You can set a hint and a floating label text. If no floating label text is provided, the hint will be set instead.

Java side, you use it like a regular spinner, setting an adapter to it.

 String[] ITEMS = {"Item 1", "Item 2", "Item 3", "Item 4", "Item 5", "Item 6"};
 ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_spinner_item, ITEMS);
 adapter.setDropDownViewResource(android.R.layout.simple_spinner_dropdown_item);
 spinner = (MaterialSpinner) findViewById(R.id.spinner);
 spinner.setAdapter(adapter);

If you need to set an error message, you can do it the same way than with an EditText :

 //Activate
 spinner.setError("Error");
 //Desactivate
 spinner.setError(null);

You can choose to have a scrolling animation or to set the error message on multiple lines with the "ms_multiline" attribute in xml (default is true).
