#MultipleImageSelect

An android library that allows selection of multiple images from gallery. It shows an initial album (buckets) chooser and then images in selected album. Can limit the number of images that can be selected. Can be used in apps with APK 11 onwards.

Sample app can be found here #Usage Include this library in your project using gradle (thanks to JitPack.io).

For stable build:

repositories {
  maven {
    url "https://jitpack.io"
  }
}

dependencies {
  compile 'com.github.darsh2:MultipleImageSelect:v0.0.4'
}

For using the latest build, replace the tag in dependencies above with latest commit hash. Example:

repositories {
  maven {
    url "https://jitpack.io"
  }
}

dependencies {
  compile 'com.github.darsh2:MultipleImageSelect:3474549'
}

In project's AndroidManifest.xml, add the following under application node:

<activity
  android:name="com.darsh.multipleimageselect.activities.AlbumSelectActivity"
  android:theme="@style/MultipleImageSelectTheme">
  <intent-filter>
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
  </intent-filter>
</activity>

In the activity from where you want to call image selector, create Intent as follows:

Intent intent = new Intent(this, AlbumSelectActivity.class);
//set limit on number of images that can be selected, default is 10
intent.putExtra(Constants.INTENT_EXTRA_LIMIT, numberOfImagesToSelect);
startActivityForResult(intent, Constants.REQUEST_CODE);

and override onActivityResult as follows:

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
  if (requestCode == Constants.REQUEST_CODE && resultCode == RESULT_OK && data != null) {
    //The array list has the image paths of the selected images
    ArrayList<Image> images = data.getParcelableArrayListExtra(Constants.INTENT_EXTRA_IMAGES);
    ...  
}

#Custom Styles

  1. To change the color of UI elements, in colors.xml file, override the following attributes with the desired colors. Example:
<color name="multiple_image_select_primary">#673AB7</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_primaryDark">#512DA8</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_primaryLight">#D1C4E9</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_accent">#536DFE</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_primaryText">#212121</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_secondaryText">#727272</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_divider">#B6B6B6</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_toolbarPrimaryText">#FFFFFF</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_albumTextBackground">#99FFFFFF</color>
<color name="multiple_image_select_imageSelectBackground">#000000</color>    

  1. To change the theme altogether, do step 1, and make the following changes in styles.xml and manifest file:

styles.xml: Create the theme you want to use along with a theme for toolbar and actionmode. Example:

<style name="OverrideMultipleImageSelectTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.NoActionBar">
  <item name="colorPrimary">@color/multiple_image_select_primary</item>
  <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/multiple_image_select_primaryDark</item>
  <item name="colorAccent">@color/multiple_image_select_accent</item>
  <item name="actionModeStyle">@style/OverrideCustomActionModeStyle</item>
  <item name="windowActionModeOverlay">true</item>
</style>
<style name="OverrideCustomActionModeStyle" parent="Base.Widget.AppCompat.ActionMode">
  <item name="background">@color/multiple_image_select_primary</item>
</style>
<style name="OverrideCustomToolbarTheme" parent="Base.ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.ActionBar">
</style>

AndroidManifest.xml: Add tools:replace="android:theme" to AlbumSelectActivity and ImageSelectActivity and specify theme to use. Example:

<manifest ...
  xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
  ...>
  
  <activity android:name="com.darsh.multipleimageselect.activities.AlbumSelectActivity"
  tools:replace="android:theme"
    android:theme="@style/OverrideMultipleImageSelectTheme">
    <intent-filter>
      <category android:name="ANDROID.INTENT.CATEGORY.DEFAULT" />
    </intent-filter>
    </activity>
  <activity android:name="com.darsh.multipleimageselect.activities.ImageSelectActivity"
    tools:replace="android:theme"
    android:theme="@style/OverrideMultipleImageSelectTheme">
    <intent-filter>
      <category android:name="ANDROID.INTENT.CATEGORY.DEFAULT" />
    </intent-filter>
  </activity>
