Hello, maybe you can help me.

I have two edittext with this characteristics:

And I put background to these with:

B4X:
Dim cd As ColorDrawable
cd.Initialize2(Colors.White,8dip,1,0xFF808080)
   
txtCodigo.Background = cd
txtAdicional.Background = cd
All works fine:

When I clicked on a text, the right edge was lost

I have tried to change the layout of the images, their alignment, but the same behavior is always repeated, I have changed the size of the text and I always have the same results.

Thanks

Christian.

Do not use the same ColorDrawable for different items.
That generate that behaviour.

Good that it helped.
I suggest You to create a sub like this
B4X:
Sub background (backcolor As Int, radius As Int, borderwidth As Int, bordercolor As Int) As ColorDrawable
    Dim cd As ColorDrawable
    cd.Initialize2(backcolor,radius,borderwidth,bordercolor)
    Return cd
End Sub
Then every time You need to set a ColorDrawable to a view just type
B4X:
MyView.Background = background(Colors.White,8dip,1,0xFF808080)
Of course You can pass different parameters as needed at every call.
In this way You don't need to create a single variable for every view.
