Notice

The usage has significantly changed in version 0.0.5 inspired by chrisbanes implementation which makes styling easier. If you want to use the old style, use version 0.0.4.

Usage

Add the library project or grab to build.gradle:

compile 'com.wrapp.floatlabelededittext:library:0.0.6'

or plain maven:

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.wrapp.floatlabelededittext</groupId>
  <artifactId>library</artifactId>
  <version>0.0.6</version>
  <type>aar</type>
</dependency>

and then insert the view in XML:

    <com.wrapp.floatlabelededittext.FloatLabeledEditText
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content">

        <EditText
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:hint="This is the hint" />
    </com.wrapp.floatlabelededittext.FloatLabeledEditText>

    <!-- add some padding -->
    <com.wrapp.floatlabelededittext.FloatLabeledEditText
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        float:fletPadding="10dp">

        <EditText
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:hint="Username" />

            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:hint="Password"
            android:inputType="textPassword" />
    </com.wrapp.floatlabelededittext.FloatLabeledEditText>

        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
