Announcement

RaiflatButton

A raised button that lowers down to 0dp of elevation. From my blog post: https://rubensousa.github.io/2016/10/raiflatbutton

It behaves like a normal button on APIs < 21

Build

dependencies {
   compile 'com.github.rubensousa:raiflatbutton:0.1'
}

How to

Just add the following xml to your layout:

<com.github.rubensousa.raiflatbutton.RaiflatButton
    android:id="@+id/normalButton"
    style="@style/Base.Widget.AppCompat.Button.Colored"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="Colored" />
    
<com.github.rubensousa.raiflatbutton.RaiflatImageButton
    android:id="@+id/imageButton"
    style="@style/Base.Widget.AppCompat.Button"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:src="@drawable/ic_android" />

If you want to resume the normal button behavior, just use:

button.setFlatEnabled(false);

Styling

Since RaiflatButton and RaiflatImageButton both extend AppCompatButton and AppCompatImageButton, you can reuse the same AppCompat styles.

Example:

<style name="RaiflatButtonPrimaryStyle" parent="Base.Widget.AppCompat.Button.Colored">
    <item name="android:colorControlNormal">?attr/colorPrimary</item>
</style>
