ExtendedTouchView

Want some background? Check out this blog post.

Have you noticed that the Material guidelines specify that touch targets should sometimes be larger than the actual views?

Check out this dialog’s buttons, for example:

Since TouchDelegate is a bit clunky to use, ExtendedTouchView abstracts it away and you can use plain ol’ XML to set those targets to any size, like this:

<com.lnikkila.extendedtouchview.ExtendedTouchView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:touchHeight="48dp">

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/button"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@string/button" />

</com.lnikkila.extendedtouchview.ExtendedTouchView>

And that’s it!

Installation

You can get the compiled library on JCenter.

Throw this in your build.gradle:

compile 'com.lnikkila:extendedtouchview:0.1.0'
