Nice Spinner

NiceSpinner is a re-implementation of the default Android's spinner, with a nice arrow animation and a different way to display its content.

It follows the material design guidelines, and it is compatible starting from Api 14.

Usage

The usage is pretty straightforward. Add the tag into the XML layout:

 <org.angmarch.views.NiceSpinner
   android:id="@+id/nice_spinner"
   android:layout_width="wrap_content"
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"
   android:layout_margin="16dp"/>
  • Note: change layout_width to at least the width of the largest item on the list to prevent resizing

Then use this snippet to populate with contents:

 NiceSpinner niceSpinner = (NiceSpinner) findViewById(R.id.nice_spinner);
 List<String> dataset = new LinkedList<>(Arrays.asList("One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Five"));
 niceSpinner.attachDataSource(dataset);

Attributes

You can add attributes to customize the view. Available attributes:

name type info
arrowTint color sets the color on the drop-down arrow
hideArrow boolean set whether show or hide the drop-down arrow
arrowDrawable reference set the drawable of the drop-down arrow
textTint color set the text color
dropDownListPaddingBottom dimension set the bottom padding of the drop-down list
backgroundSelector integer set the background selector for the drop-down list rows
popupTextAlignment enum set the horizontal alignment of the default popup text
entries reference set the data source from an array of strings

How to include
