Android DialogFragment Examples

Android DialogFragment

The most flexible way to create a dialog is not by using andorid.app.Dialog class but by using DialogFragment class. Through this you get full fragment capability including the ability to observe the dialog lifecycle as well as utilize ViewModels.

What is a DialogFragment?

A DialogFragment is a fragment that displays a dialog window, floating on top of its activity’s window. This fragment contains a Dialog object, which it displays as appropriate based on the fragment’s state.

In this class we use the support dialogfragment since the framework android.app.dialogFragment was deprecated in API level 28.

Our implementation will override this class and implement
the onCreateView(LayoutInflater, ViewGroup, Bundle) to supply the content of the dialog. Alternatively, we can override onCreateDialog(Bundle) to create an entirely custom dialog, such as an AlertDialog, with its own content.

In this article we will be learning the following:

  1. Creating a dialog with ListView in kotlin.
  2. Using DialogFragment to create dialog with custom layoutt such as alertdialogs, input dialogs etc.
  3. Creating popup menus

(a). Kotlin Android DialogFragment with ListView

Kotlin Android DialogFragment with ListView tutorial.

We want to see how to open a DialogFragment when a simple button is clicked. The dialogFragment will comprise of a title and a listview.

We infact inflate it via the LayoutInflater class from an xml layout specification.

When the user clicks a ListView item we show it in a Toast. When the user clicks outside the DialogFragment, we dismiss it(the DialogFragment).

Let’s go.

Video Tutorial

Well we have a video tutorial as an alternative to this. If you prefer tutorials like this one then it would be good you subscribe to our YouTube channel. Basically we have a TV for programming where do daily tutorials especially android.

Kotlin Android DialogFragment with Simple ListView

Let’s look at a complete example.

Tools

  1. IDE: Android Studio – android’s offical android IDE supported by Jetbrains and Google.
  2. Language : Kotlin -Statically Typed Language first developed by Jetbrains.
  3. Emulator : Nox Player – An emulator fast enough for my slow machine.

Gradle Scripts

We start by exploring our gradle scripts.

(a). build.gradle(App)

Here’s our app level build.gradle file. We have the dependencies DSL where we add our dependencies.

This file is called app level build.gradle since it’s located in the app folder of the project.

If you are using Android Studio version 3 and above use implementation keyword while if you are using a version less than 3 then still use the compile keyword.

Once you’ve modified this build.gradle file you have to sync your project. Android Studio will indeed prompt you to do so.

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'

apply plugin: 'kotlin-android-extensions'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 28
    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "info.camposha.kotlindialogfragment"
        minSdkVersion 15
        targetSdkVersion 28
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
        testInstrumentationRunner "android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    implementation"org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jre7:$kotlin_version"
    implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0-rc01'
}

You can also see that we have started by applying two kotlin-specific plugins in our build.gradle file:

apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-android-extensions'

that is kotlin-android and kotlin-android-extensions.

Kotlin Code

Android apps can be mainly written in Java or Kotlin. These days however there are many frameworks like Flutter also which use languages like Dart.

In this class we are using Kotlin programming language.

We will have these classes in our project.

(a). PioneersFragment.kt

Represents our FragmentDialog and will infact derive from it.

1. Creating a DialogFragment

We start by creating a Kotlin class that derives from android.support.v4.app.DialogFragment. We use the support library fragment since android.app.DialogFragment is deprecated.

class PioneersFragment : DialogFragment() {..}

Note that the above statement has included a default empty constructor for our DialogFragment. We do this using the brackets(()) in Kotlin.

2. Overriding DialogFragment’s OnCreateView()

We will then override the onCreateView() method of the Fragment class.

 override fun onCreateView(inflater: LayoutInflater, container: ViewGroup?, savedInstanceState: Bundle?): View? {..}

We’ve passed three parameters:

  1. LayoutInflater object.
  2. ViewGroup object.
  3. Bundle object.

3. Inflating a Layout into a DialogFragment

Inside the method first we inflate the R.layout.fraglayout layout via the inflate method, using the LayoutInflater instance.

        val rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fraglayout, container)

4. Creating a Kotlin Array

Then create a Kotlin array using the arrayOf() method. This will act as our data source to host pioneers. This is what we will bind to the ListView which we will show in our DialogFragment.

var pioneers = arrayOf("Dennis Ritchie", "Rodney Brooks", "Sergey Brin", "Larry Page", "Cynthia Breazeal", "Jeffrey Bezos", "Berners-Lee Tim", "Centaurus A", "Virgo Stellar Stream")

5. Binding a ListView to Kotlin Array using ArrayAdapter

We then reference our ListView and set it’s adapter. We will use arrayadapter.

        val myListView = rootView.findViewById(R.id.myListView) as ListView
        myListView!!.adapter = ArrayAdapter<String>(activity, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, pioneers)

6. Setting a DialogFragment Title

We set the DialogFragment’s title using the setTitle() method, you pass a String to this method.

        this.dialog.setTitle("Tech Pioneers")

7. Listening to ListView’s Click events in Kotlin

Let’s say we want to show a Toast message when a ListView is clicked, showing the clicked item:

        myListView.setOnItemClickListener {
            adapterView,
            view,
            position,
            l
            -> Toast.makeText(activity, pioneers[position], Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
        }

Here’s the full code of PioneersFragment class:

package info.camposha.kotlindialogfragment

import android.os.Bundle
import android.support.v4.app.DialogFragment
import android.view.LayoutInflater
import android.view.View
import android.view.ViewGroup
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter
import android.widget.ListView
import android.widget.Toast

class PioneersFragment : DialogFragment() {

    override fun onCreateView(inflater: LayoutInflater, container: ViewGroup?, savedInstanceState: Bundle?): View? {
        val rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fraglayout, container)
        var pioneers = arrayOf("Dennis Ritchie", "Rodney Brooks", "Sergey Brin", "Larry Page", "Cynthia Breazeal", "Jeffrey Bezos", "Berners-Lee Tim", "Centaurus A", "Virgo Stellar Stream")

        val myListView = rootView.findViewById(R.id.myListView) as ListView
        //with arrayadapter you have to pass a textview as a resource, and that is simple_list_item_1
        myListView!!.adapter = ArrayAdapter<String>(activity, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, pioneers)

        this.dialog.setTitle("Tech Pioneers")

        myListView.setOnItemClickListener {
            adapterView,
            view,
            position,
            l
            -> Toast.makeText(activity, pioneers[position], Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
        }

        return rootView
    }
}
(c). MainActivity.kt

This is our MainActivity. It will contain a button that when clicked will show or open our DialogFragment.

1. Create an Activity in Kotlin

You just create a class, give it an identifier then make it derive from android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity:

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {..}

2. Override the Activity’s onCreate() method

The onCreate() is a method that gets raised when our activity’s being created.

Here we call the onCreate() method of the super class. Then we use the setContentView() method to inflate our activity_main.xml:

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main)

3. Referencing Widgets in Kotlin

You can reference widgets from their respective layout using the findViewById() method of the activity.

Like we do with our button.

        val openFragmentBtn = findViewById(R.id.openFragmentID) as Button

4. Obtain an Activity’s FragmentManager

Fragments get hosted by Activities. Hence an activity maintains a supportFragmentManager as a property.

We can obtain it this way:

        val fm = supportFragmentManager

5. Open/Show a Fragment

We can open a Fragment or show it. But first we have to instantiate that Fragment:

        val pioneersFragment = PioneersFragment()

Then we can open it when the user clicks a button by invoking the show() method of the Fragment class:


        openFragmentBtn.setOnClickListener(object : View.OnClickListener {
            override fun onClick(view: View) {
                pioneersFragment.show(fm, "PioneersFragment_tag")
            }
        })

Here’s the full code of the MainActivity:

package info.camposha.kotlindialogfragment

import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity
import android.os.Bundle
import android.view.View
import android.widget.Button

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main)

        val openFragmentBtn = findViewById(R.id.openFragmentID) as Button

        val fm = supportFragmentManager
        val pioneersFragment = PioneersFragment()

        openFragmentBtn.setOnClickListener(object : View.OnClickListener {
            override fun onClick(view: View) {
                pioneersFragment.show(fm, "PioneersFragment_tag")
            }
        })
    }
}
//end

Layout Resources

(a). activity_main.xml

This is our main activity’s layout. It will contain our Button which when clicked will open our DialogFragment.

This layout will get inflated into the main activity’s user interface. This will happen via the Activity’s setContentView() method which will require us to pass it the layout.

We will do so inside the onCreate() method of Activity.

We use the following elements:

  1. RelativeLayout
  2. Button
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout

    android_layout_width="match_parent"
    android_layout_height="match_parent"
    tools_context=".MainActivity">

    <Button
        android_id="@+id/openFragmentID"
        android_text="Open Fragment"
        android_background="@color/colorAccent"
        android_layout_centerInParent="true"
        android_layout_width="wrap_content"
        android_layout_height="wrap_content" />

</RelativeLayout>
(b). fraglayout.xml

Our DialogFragment layout. This layout be inflated into the user interface for our Dialog Fragment.

It will contain a simple ListView.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
    android_orientation="vertical" android_layout_width="match_parent"
    android_layout_height="match_parent">

    <ListView
        android_id="@+id/myListView"
        android_layout_width="match_parent"
        android_layout_height="wrap_content"/>

</LinearLayout>

Value Resources

(a). colors.xml

Our material design colors:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <color name="colorPrimary">#3F51B5</color>
    <color name="colorPrimaryDark">#303F9F</color>
    <color name="colorAccent">#FF4081</color>
    <color name="material_amber_700">#ffffa000</color>
    <color name="material_amber_800">#ffff8f00</color>
    <color name="material_amber_900">#ffff6f00</color>
    <color name="material_amber_A100">#ffffe57f</color>
    <color name="material_amber_A200">#ffffd740</color>
    <color name="material_amber_A400">#ffffc400</color>

</resources>
(b). styles.xml

Our application’s style.

<resources>

    <!-- Base application theme. -->
    <style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
        <!-- Customize your theme here. -->
        <item name="colorPrimary">@color/material_amber_A400</item>
        <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/material_amber_900</item>
        <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
    </style>

</resources>

(b). Android DialogFragment – Show RecyclerView

This example will show a recyclerview in diaogfragment.

When the user clicks a show button we open a dialogfragment, displaying a RecyclerView on it.

Project Summary

No. File Major Responsibility
1. MyHolder.java RecyclerView ViewHolder class.
2. MyAdapter.java RecyclerView data adapter class
3. TVShowFragment.java DialogFragment class
4. MainActivity.java Activity class
5. activity_layout.xml To be inflated to MainActivity
6. content_main.xml To be included inside the activity_main.xml.We add our veiws and widgets here.
7. fraglayout.xml The layout to be inflated to our custom dialog fragment.
8. model.xml To model how each recyclerview item will appear

1. Create Basic Activity Project

  1. First create an empty project in android studio. Go to File –> New Project.
  2. Type the application name and choose the company name.
  3. Choose minimum SDK.
  4. Choose Basic activity.
  5. Click Finish.

Basic activity will have a toolbar and floating action button already added in the layout

Normally two layouts get generated with this option:

No. Name Type Description
1. activity_main.xml XML Layout Will get inflated into MainActivity Layout.Typically contains appbarlayout with toolbar.Also has a floatingactionbutton.
2. content_main.xml XML Layout Will be included into activity_main.xml.You add your views and widgets here.
3. MainActivity.java Class Main Activity.

In this example I used a basic activity.

The activity will automatically be registered in the android_manifest.xml. Android Activities are components and normally need to be registered as an application component.

If you’ve created yours manually then register it inside the <application>...<application> as following, replacing the MainActivity with your activity name:


        <activity android_name=".MainActivity">

            <intent-filter>

                <action android_name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android_name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

            </intent-filter>

        </activity>

You can see that one action and category are specified as intent filters. The category makes our MainActivity as launcher activity. Launcher activities get executed first when th android app is run.

3. Create User Interface

Here are our layouts for this project:

activity_main.xml

  • This layout gets inflated to MainActivity user interface.
  • It includes the content_main.xml.

Here are some of the widgets, views and viewgroups that get employed"

No. View/ViewGroup Package Role
1. CordinatorLayout android.support.design.widget Super-powered framelayout that provides our application’s top level decoration and is also specifies interactions and behavioros of all it’s children.
2. AppBarLayout android.support.design.widget A LinearLayout child that arranges its children vertically and provides material design app bar concepts like scrolling gestures.
3. ToolBar <android.support.v7.widget A ViewGroup that can provide actionbar features yet still be used within application layouts.
4. FloatingActionButton android.support.design.widget An circular imageview floating above the UI that we can use as buttons.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout

    android_layout_width="match_parent"
    android_layout_height="match_parent"
    android_fitsSystemWindows="true"
    tools_context="com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.MainActivity">

    <android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout
        android_layout_width="match_parent"
        android_layout_height="wrap_content"
        android_theme="@style/AppTheme.AppBarOverlay">

        <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
            android_id="@+id/toolbar"
            android_layout_width="match_parent"
            android_layout_height="?attr/actionBarSize"
            android_background="?attr/colorPrimary"
            app_popupTheme="@style/AppTheme.PopupOverlay" />

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

    <include layout="@layout/content_main" />

    <android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton
        android_id="@+id/fab"
        android_layout_width="wrap_content"
        android_layout_height="wrap_content"
        android_layout_gravity="bottom|end"
        android_layout_margin="@dimen/fab_margin"
        android_src="@android:drawable/ic_dialog_email" />

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

content_main.xml

This layout gets included in your activity_main.xml.
You define your UI widgets right here.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout

    android_layout_width="match_parent"
    android_layout_height="match_parent"
    android_paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android_paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android_paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android_paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    app_layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior"
    tools_context="com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.MainActivity"
    tools_showIn="@layout/activity_main">

    <TextView
        android_layout_width="wrap_content"
        android_layout_height="wrap_content"
        android_text="Hello World!" />
</RelativeLayout>
fraglayout.xml

This layout will be inflated to our dialog fragment.

It will contain our RecyclerView as our adapterview:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
    android_orientation="vertical" android_layout_width="match_parent"
    android_layout_height="match_parent">

    <android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView
        android_id="@+id/mRecyerID"
        android_layout_width="match_parent"
        android_layout_height="wrap_content"></android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView>

</LinearLayout>
model.xml

This will layout will be inflated into the View items for our RecyclerView.

Basically a CardView for each recyclerview item.

Contains a simple TextView:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v7.widget.CardView
    android_id="@+id/mCard"
    android_orientation="horizontal"
    android_layout_width="match_parent"

    android_layout_margin="10dp"
    card_view_cardCornerRadius="10dp"
    card_view_cardElevation="10dp"

    android_layout_height="wrap_content">

    <RelativeLayout
        android_layout_width="match_parent"
        android_layout_height="match_parent">

        <TextView
            android_layout_width="wrap_content"
            android_layout_height="wrap_content"
            android_textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"
            android_text="Name"
            android_id="@+id/nameTxt"
            android_padding="10dp"
            android_layout_alignParentLeft="true"
             />

    </RelativeLayout>
</android.support.v7.widget.CardView>

4. Create Java Classes

Android apps are written in Java programming language so lets create some classes.

1. MyHolder.java

Our ViewHolder class.

package com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.mRecycler;

import android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;
import com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.R;

public class MyHolder extends RecyclerView.ViewHolder {

    TextView nameTxt;

    public MyHolder(View itemView) {
        super(itemView);
        nameTxt= (TextView) itemView.findViewById(R.id.nameTxt);
    }
}
2. MyAdapter.java

Our recyclerview adapter class:

package com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.mRecycler;

import android.content.Context;
import android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;

import com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.R;

public class MyAdapter extends RecyclerView.Adapter<MyHolder> {

    Context c;
    String[] tvshows;

    public MyAdapter(Context c, String[] tvshows) {
        this.c = c;
        this.tvshows = tvshows;
    }

    //INITIALIE VH
    @Override
    public MyHolder onCreateViewHolder(ViewGroup parent, int viewType) {
        View v= LayoutInflater.from(parent.getContext()).inflate(R.layout.model,parent,false);
        MyHolder holder=new MyHolder(v);
        return holder;
    }

    //BIND DATA
    @Override
    public void onBindViewHolder(MyHolder holder, int position) {
       holder.nameTxt.setText(tvshows[position]);
    }

    @Override
    public int getItemCount() {
        return tvshows.length;
    }
}
TVShowFragment.java

This is our DialogFragment. It derives from android.app.DiloagFragment.

This class will show our RecyclerView:

package com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview;

import android.app.DialogFragment;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.Nullable;
import android.support.v7.widget.LinearLayoutManager;
import android.support.v7.widget.RecyclerView;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;

import com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview.mRecycler.MyAdapter;

public class TVShowFragment extends DialogFragment {

    String[] tvshows={"Crisis","Blindspot","BlackList","Game of Thrones","Gotham","Banshee"};
    RecyclerView rv;
    MyAdapter adapter;

    @Nullable
    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        View rootView=inflater.inflate(R.layout.fraglayout,container);

        //RECYCER
        rv= (RecyclerView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.mRecyerID);
        rv.setLayoutManager(new LinearLayoutManager(this.getActivity()));

        //ADAPTER
        adapter=new MyAdapter(this.getActivity(),tvshows);
        rv.setAdapter(adapter);

        this.getDialog().setTitle("TV Shows");

        return rootView;
    }
}

4. MainActivity.java

Our MainActivity.
It will contain a button that when clicked will show our DialogFragment:

package com.tutorials.hp.dialogfragmentrecyclerview;

import android.app.FragmentManager;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton;
import android.support.design.widget.Snackbar;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);
        FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);

         final FragmentManager fm=getFragmentManager();
        final  TVShowFragment tv=new TVShowFragment();

        fab.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
              tv.show(fm,"TV_tag");
            }
        });
    }

}

Example 2 – Android DialogFragment – ListView Search/Filter

The idea of dialogs is great because we can pop them out from nowhere. The user can then perform his thing then dismiss the dialog.

In this example we create a dialogfragment that gets displayed when a simple button is clicked from our main activity.

Our dialogfragment will contain a simple ListView and a SearchView. The ListView will contain a List of players.

The searchview can then be used to search the players from the list.

1. Our MainActivity Class

This is our main activity.

As a class it’s an activity since it derives from android.app.Activity.

No. Responsibility
1. It is our launcher and only activity.
2. It will contain a button which when clicked we show a dialogfragment.
3. It maintains a FragmentManager which helps in showing of our dialogfragment.
package com.tutorials.dialogfragmenter;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.app.FragmentManager;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.widget.Button;

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

  Button btn;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        final FragmentManager fm=getFragmentManager();
        final PlayersFragment p=new PlayersFragment();

        btn=(Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);
        btn.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {

      @Override
      public void onClick(View arg0) {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        p.show(fm, "Best Players");
      }
    });
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
        return true;
    }

}

2. Our PlayerFragment class.

This is our PlayerFragment class.

No. Responsibility
1. Derives from android.app.DialogFragment hence making it a DialogFragment.
2. We’ll reference a ListView and SearchView here. ListView will be our adapterview while we’ll use a searchview for inputting our search terms.
3. We’ll dismiss our dialogfragment when the dismiss button is clicked.
