Installation

allprojects {
 repositories {
   ...
   maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
  }
}
dependencies {
  compile 'com.github.rahimlis:badgedtablayout:v1.2'
}

Usage

Add BadgedTabLayout as if you added TabLayout itself

<android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout ...>
  
  <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar ... />
    
  <com.rahimlis.badgedtablayout.BadgedTabLayout
       android:id="@+id/tabs"
       android:layout_width="match_parent"
       android:layout_height="wrap_content"
       app:badgeBackgroundColor="@color/badge_background_color"
       />

  </android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout>

then in java do:

BadgedTabLayout tabLayout = (BadgedTabLayout) findViewById(R.id.tabs);
tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(mViewPager);

to set text of the badge use:

  //first parameter is the tab index, at which badge should appear
  tabLayout.setBadgeText(1,"1");
  //if you want to hide a badge pass null as a second parameter
  tablayout.setBadgeText(0,null);

to set icon to the tab use:

tabLayout.setIcon(0, R.drawable.ic_favorite); // 0 is the position of tab where icon should be added
tabLayout.setIcon(1, R.drawable.ic_shopping);

you can set font (Typeface) of both badge and tab by using:

tabLayout.setTabFont(ResourcesCompat.getFont(this, R.font.your_font));
tabLayout.setBadgeFont(ResourcesCompat.getFont(this, R.font.your_font));

to customize marquee property use:

tabLayout.setBadgeTruncateAt(TextUtils.TruncateAt.MIDDLE);
tabLayout.setTabTruncateAt(TextUtils.TruncateAt.MIDDLE);

Note: by default badges are hidden. You need to set some text to show it up.

Customization

you can customize tab text colors and size as if you would do it for tabLayout

app:tabTextColor="@color/your_unselected_text_color"
app:tabSelectedTextColor="@color/your_selected_text_color"
app:tabTextSize="11sp"

additionally you can change badge background color, as well as badge text color and text size

app:badgeTextColor="@color/your_selected_color"
app:badgeSelectedTextColor="@color/your_selected_color"
app:badgeBackgroundColor="@color/your_selected_color"
app:badgeSelectedBackgroundColor="@color/your_selected_color"
app:badgeTextSize="11sp"

another way to do this is to create color state list and pass it to corresponding field:

<!-- file badge_background_color.xml / badge_text_color.xml at color directory -->
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:color="#ff0" android:state_selected="true" />
    <item android:color="#f0f" android:state_selected="false" />
</selector>

then:

app:badgeBackgroundColor="@color/badge_background_color"
app:badgeTextColor="@color/badge_text_color"

you also can change every property programmatically, look at class documentation for more information.
