This is a wrapper for this Github project.

This Library comes basically with three Objects. All three of them are used in the Example.
EmojiParser, EmojiTextView and EmojiEditText

For the normal work you dont need the EmojiParser. It is only used in the example to get the list of all available Emojis

The Mainobjects are the other two. The EmojiTextview and the EmojiEditText
A Emoji always starts with a [ and ends with a ]. All chars between is the name of the Emoji.

This library is Donationware. You can download the library, you can test the library. But if you want to USE the library in your App you need to Donate for it.
Please click here to donate (You can donate any amount you want to donate for the library (or my work) :)




Due to the size of the needed resources (the example archive is 4mb in size) the Example can be downloaded from my Dropbox.

You can find a overview of all supported Emojis here.

B4X:
    Activity.LoadLayout("Layout1")
    lv.Clear
  Emoji.Initialize("")
    Dim emojilist As List = Emoji.ListEmoji
    For i = 0 To emojilist.Size-1
        Dim s As String = emojilist.Get(i)
        Dim d As BitmapDrawable = Emoji.GetEmojiDrawable(s)
        lv.AddTwoLinesAndBitmap2(s,"Type ["&s&"] to get this Image",d.Bitmap,"["&s&"]")
    Next
 
    lblEmoji.Text = "[de] [uk] [us] [wine_glass] [p1] [see_no_evil] [yellow_heart]"
    edtEmoji.Backgroundcolor = Colors.White
    edtEmoji.Text = "[de][uk][us] Donate much [dollar] [grin] [heart_eyes]"
    edtEmoji.Textcolor = Colors.Black

This is really good!

However is it possible to add .SelectionStart like the standard EditText?

At the moment it isnt possible to edit the text/insert an emoji other than at the end.

Sadly: no... I´m just doing a VIEW-WRAPPER... The view does not expose such methods. Due to this there is nothing i could wrap.

You can touch the edit to set the curso to a specific position and then press BACK or enter an new emoji. I can add an emoji this way manually to the first position (or any other) without problem. But you can not do this programatically.

When I try this (using your sample app), it just adds the emoji to the end of the text rather than at the position the cursor is. When I try inserting text, it inserts the text.

I'm using a Moto G with KitKat.

Aaah...so you can't insert into text from a list - only by typing [emoji name?
You can only add an emoji from a list to the 'end' of the text?

Try this using your example - position the cursor anywhere (but the last position), select a an emoji from your list - the emoji is appended to the text, not inserted in the cursor position.

Now i understand you.
Look at the itemclick event. I put the clicked item always to the END...
B4X:
Sub lv_ItemClick (Position As Int, Value As Object)
    edtEmoji.Text = edtEmoji.Text & Value
End Sub
you can use

B4X:
Sub lv_ItemClick (Position As Int, Value As Object)
    edtEmoji.Text = Value & edtEmoji.Text
End Sub
to add it to the start

You also can change the string
Code:
Log(Emoji.demojizedText(edtEmoji.Text))
and add an emoji at any place and then put back the new text to the edit
Can you explain the difference between 'demojizedText' and 'emojiText'? They return the same values:

B4X:
Log("dmojized: " & Emoji.demojizedText(edtEmoji.Text))
    Log("emojitext: " & Emoji.emojiText(edtEmoji.Text))
dmojized: [de][uk][us] Donatemuch [dollar] [grin] [heart_eyes][pizza][pizza]
emojitext: [de][uk][us] Donatemuch [dollar] [grin] [heart_eyes][pizza][pizza]
I am trying to find a way for a user to position the cursor in the edit box and insert an emoji

Hi

I tried to port this library but it was imposible for me. I was reading a lot of info in the forum, but my knowlegment is not enought.

Take a look

https://github.com/rockerhieu/emojicon

This library contains a lot of functions that could be interesting like a keyboard like whatsapp.

Its only a comment. :)

It´s nothing more than a grid showing emojs..

Take a panel, put a lot of emojlabels with each one emoj on it on this panel and make them clickable...

B4X:
lblEmoji.Text = "[de]"
Ok. I will try to do an panel and extend your library.

----EDITED----

Sorry, but I'm going to ask for advice on the type of GRID to use. I've seen libraries , classes, etc. , and if you can advise me I'd appreciate it.

I think that this can be the best option, but I ask for your opinion:

http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/grid-table-and-listview-library.16381/

Thanks

----END EDITION----

I undestood you.

I started to do the virtual grid, only with the coordinates, and with a transparent mask (button with transparent color) for the click event Its working well.

In a future, I will post the code if anyone wants a keyboard with icons like whatsapp.

I am resolving the same issue like @lymey with text position. Its very annoying loose the position when an icon is inserted in the emojiedittext.

I think that is imposible to fix because the emojiedittext has no method to get or set the position.

Thanks

Hi @DonManfred:

I have a question about wrap a library.

I was reading the github of the wrapped library and the EmojiEditText object extends EditText object.

I have no idea than inheritance in the wrapped libraries, but the EditText object has methods to obtain the position. I think that the EmojiEditText can inherit them, isn't it?

Thanks
