#Show/Hide Password EditText

#In Android Support Library, revision 24.2.0 (August 2016) TextInputLayout adds support for the password visibility toggle. Marking showhidepasswordedittext as Deprecated at of 18th Aug 2016.

Inputting text on mobile devices with their smaller keyboards can be error prone and when the password is obscured it can lead to failed login attempts that can frustrate users. Show/Hide Password EditText is a very simple extension of Android's EditText that puts a clickable hide/show icon in the right hand side of the EditText that allows showing of the password.

Features:

  • Use custom fonts/typefaces
  • Customise the show/hide icon
  • Tint the show/hide icon
  • Use either android:inputType="textPassword" or android:inputType="numberPassword"
  • Compatible with TextInputLayout from the Design Support lib.
  • Supports back to API 9+ (Gingerbread)
  • Password visibility survives configuration changes

How to use

It's just like the regular EditText.

 <com.scottyab.showhidepasswordedittext.ShowHidePasswordEditText
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:id="@+id/simplePassword"
            android:hint="Password"
            />

Also see several examples in the sample project.

Add as dependency

This library is not yet released in Maven Central, until then you can add as a library module or use JitPack.io

add remote maven url

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

then add a library dependency. Remember to check for latest release here

    dependencies {
        compile 'com.github.scottyab:showhidepasswordedittext:0.8'
    }

Customization

  • Customise the hide/show icons via custom attributes

    • app:drawable_show="@drawable/ic_custom_show"
    • app:drawable_hide="@drawable/ic_custom_hide"
  • You can also tint icon

    • xml-attribute app:tint_color="@android:color/holo_orange_dark"
    • runtime using setTintColor(int color)
  • Increase the size of the touch area that makes the view toggle app:additionalTouchTargetSize=50dp
