Playground app

Download the playground app from Google Play, with this app you can try out all features and even generate XML with your selected configuration.

Getting started

This library is available on Maven Central, install it by adding the following dependency to your build.gradle:

implementation 'nl.joery.animatedbottombar:library:1.1.0'

Versions 1.0.x can only be used with jCenter, versions 1.1.x and up can be used with Maven Central.

Define AnimatedBottomBar in your XML layout with custom attributes.

<nl.joery.animatedbottombar.AnimatedBottomBar
    android:id="@+id/bottom_bar"
    android:background="#FFF"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:abb_selectedTabType="text"
    app:abb_indicatorAppearance="round"
    app:abb_indicatorMargin="16dp"
    app:abb_indicatorHeight="4dp"
    app:abb_tabs="@menu/tabs"
    app:abb_selectedIndex="1" />

Create a file named tabs.xml in the res/menu/ resources folder:

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item
        android:id="@+id/tab_home"
        android:icon="@drawable/home"
        android:title="@string/home" />
    <item
        android:id="@+id/tab_alarm"
        android:icon="@drawable/alarm"
        android:title="@string/alarm" />
    <item
        android:id="@+id/tab_bread"
        android:icon="@drawable/bread"
        android:title="@string/bread" />
    <item
        android:id="@+id/tab_cart"
        android:icon="@drawable/cart"
        android:title="@string/cart" />
</menu>

Get notified when the selected tab changes by setting callbacks:

bottom_bar.onTabSelected = {
    Log.d("bottom_bar", "Selected tab: " + it.title)
}
bottom_bar.onTabReselected = {
    Log.d("bottom_bar", "Reselected tab: " + it.title)
}

Or set a listener if you need more detailed information:

bottom_bar.setOnTabSelectListener(object : AnimatedBottomBar.OnTabSelectListener {
    override fun onTabSelected(
        lastIndex: Int,
        lastTab: AnimatedBottomBar.Tab?,
        newIndex: Int,
        newTab: AnimatedBottomBar.Tab
    ) {
        Log.d("bottom_bar", "Selected index: $newIndex, title: ${newTab.title}")
    }

    // An optional method that will be fired whenever an already selected tab has been selected again.
    override fun onTabReselected(index: Int, tab: AnimatedBottomBar.Tab) {
        Log.d("bottom_bar", "Reselected index: $index, title: ${tab.title}")
    }
})

Managing tabs

Short overview on how to manage tabs using code.

Creating new tabs

// Creating a tab by passing values
val bottomBarTab1 = AnimatedBottomBar.createTab(drawable, "Tab 1")

// Creating a tab by passing resources
val bottomBarTab2 = AnimatedBottomBar.createTab(R.drawable.ic_home, R.string.tab_2, R.id.tab_home)

Adding new tabs

// Adding a tab at the end
AnimatedBottomBar.addTab(bottomBarTab1)

// Add a tab at a specific position
AnimatedBottomBar.addTabAt(1, bottomBarTab2)

Removing tabs

// Removing a tab by object reference
val tabToRemove = AnimatedBottomBar.tabs[1]
AnimatedBottomBar.removeTab(tabToRemove)

// Removing a tab at a specific position
AnimatedBottomBar.removeTabAt(tabPosition)

// Removing a tab by the given ID resource
AnimatedBottomBar.removeTabById(R.id.tab_home)

Selecting tabs

// Selecting a tab by object reference
val tabToSelect = AnimatedBottomBar.tabs[1]
AnimatedBottomBar.selectTab(tabToSelect)

// Selecting a tab at a specific position
AnimatedBottomBar.selectTabAt(1)

// Selecting a tab by the given ID resource
AnimatedBottomBar.selectTabById(R.id.tab_home)

Enabling / disabling tabs

// Disabling a tab by object reference
val tabToDisable = AnimatedBottomBar.tabs[1]
AnimatedBottomBar.setTabEnabled(tabToDisable, false) // Use true for re-enabling the tab

// Disabling a tab at a specific position
AnimatedBottomBar.setTabEnabledAt(1, false)

// Disabling a tab by the given ID resource
AnimatedBottomBar.setTabEnabledById(R.id.tab_home, false)

Intercepting tabs

This could be useful for example restricting access to a premium area. You can use a callback or a more detailed listener:

bottom_bar.onTabIntercepted = {
    if (newTab.id == R.id.tab_pro_feature && !hasProVersion) {
        // e.g. show a dialog
        false
    }
    true
}

Detailed listener:

bottom_bar.setOnTabInterceptListener(object : AnimatedBottomBar.OnTabInterceptListener {
    override fun onTabIntercepted(
        lastIndex: Int,
        lastTab: AnimatedBottomBar.Tab?,
        newIndex: Int,
        newTab: AnimatedBottomBar.Tab
    ): Boolean {
        if (newTab.id == R.id.tab_pro_feature && !hasProVersion) {
            // e.g. show a dialog
            return false
        }
        return true
    }
})

Tab badges

Instructions on how to set badges for tabs, a AnimatedBottomBar.Badge object should be supplied to the BottomBar, note that it is also possible to add badges without text.

Adding badges

// Adding a badge by tab reference
val tabToAddBadgeAt = AnimatedBottomBar.tabs[1]
AnimatedBottomBar.addBadgeAtTab(tabToAddBadgeAt, AnimatedBottomBar.Badge("99"))

// Adding a badge at a specific position
AnimatedBottomBar.addBadgeAtTabIndex(1, AnimatedBottomBar.Badge("99"))

// Adding a badge at the given ID resource
AnimatedBottomBar.addBadgeAtTabId(R.id.tab_home, AnimatedBottomBar.Badge("99"))

Removing badges

// Removing a badge by tab reference
val tabToRemoveBadgeFrom = AnimatedBottomBar.tabs[1]
AnimatedBottomBar.clearBadgeAtTab(tabToRemoveBadgeFrom)

// Removing a badge at a specific position
AnimatedBottomBar.clearBadgeAtTabIndex(1, AnimatedBottomBar.Badge("99"))

// removing a badge at the given ID resource
AnimatedBottomBar.clearBadgeAtTabId(R.id.tab_home, AnimatedBottomBar.Badge("99"))

Styling individual badges

Additionally there is also the possibility to individually style badges.

AnimatedBottomBar.Badge(
    text = "99",
    backgroundColor = Color.RED,
    textColor = Color.GREEN,
    textSize =  12.spPx // in pixels
)

Usage with ViewPager

It is easy to use the BottomBar with a ViewPager or ViewPager2, you can simply use the setupWithViewPager() method. Please note that the number of tabs and ViewPager pages need to be identical in order for it to function properly.

Usage

// For ViewPager use:
bottom_bar.setupWithViewPager(yourViewPager)

// For ViewPager2 use:
bottom_bar.setupWithViewPager2(yourViewPager2)
