How to set a custom title for ImagePicker in Kotlin Android

How to set a custom title for ImagePicker in Kotlin Android.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to set a custom title for ImagePicker in Kotlin Android.

Step 1: Add the necessary dependencies

To use the ImagePicker library, you need to add the following dependencies to your app's build.gradle file:

implementation 'com.github.dhaval2404:imagepicker:1.7.0'
implementation 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:4.12.0'

Step 2: Create a custom title layout

First, you need to create a custom layout file for the title. In this layout file, you can define the title text and any other customizations you want. For example, let's create a layout file called custom_title_layout.xml with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android=""

android:text="Custom Title"
android:textColor="#000000" />


Step 3: Initialize ImagePicker with custom title

In your activity or fragment, you need to initialize the ImagePicker library and set the custom title. Here's an example of how you can do it:

import com.github.dhaval2404.imagepicker.ImagePicker

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {

// Set custom title
val customTitleView = LayoutInflater.from(this).inflate(R.layout.custom_title_layout, null)
val titleText = customTitleView.findViewById<TextView>(
titleText.text = "My Custom Title"

// Initialize ImagePicker with custom title

In the above example, we inflate the custom title layout custom_title_layout.xml and set the title text to "My Custom Title". Then, we pass the custom title view to the setTitleView() method of the ImagePicker library.

Step 4: Handle the selected image

To handle the selected image, you need to override the onActivityResult() method in your activity or fragment. Here's an example of how you can do it:

override fun onActivityResult(requestCode: Int, resultCode: Int, data: Intent?) {
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data)

if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK && requestCode == ImagePicker.REQUEST_CODE) {
val imageUri = data?.data
// Do something with the selected image URI

In the onActivityResult() method, you can retrieve the selected image URI from the data Intent and perform any further processing or handling as needed.

That's it! You have successfully set a custom title for ImagePicker in Kotlin Android. You can customize the title layout further by adding more views or applying different styles.
