B4A Library MSMaterialDialogs

Looking to theme your app to Material Design? Or even ensure Holo?
This library will make your dialogs look either Material or Holo on every Android version.
This is a port of THIS repo

One thing to note these are NOT modal dialogs. Code execution will continue in the background.

It is very easy to use.

Screenshots





Example
Quick Alert Dialog:
B4X:
Sub btn3_Click
    Dim MB As MSQuickDialogs 
    MB.ShowMaterialDarkMessageBox("Title","QuickDialog2","QD2")
End Sub

Sub QD2_DialogResponse(Response As Int)
    Msgbox("QD2","Old Messagebox!")
End Sub
Showing a listdialog:
B4X:
    Dim itemList As List = Array As String("Organes", "Nabanabas", "Appels", "Drapes", "BawSterries", "Lemlons")
    Dim builder As MSDialogBuilder 
    builder.Initialize("MyDialog")
    builder.setTitle("Material List Dialog").setMessage("This is a List dialog").setThemeColor(Colors.Green)
    builder.setButton(DialogResponse.POSITIVE , "OK")
    builder.setCancelable(True)
    builder.setDesign(builder.DESIGN_MATERIAL_DARK)
    builder.setListStyle(itemList)
    builder.show
Usage
Copy the res files to a location on your HDD, and in your project you need to use #AddtionalRes to point to these files.

Limitations
Currently cannot do custom dialogs. Might work on that later if worthwhile.

But currently I am using MSMaterialMenu along with AHNavigationDrawer and it works superbly... ! So you are saying there is a way to get the same MSMaterialMenu animation by using only AppCompat ??

Which version of MSMaterialMenu are you using?
The one in this post: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/msmaterialmenu-animating-icons.44735/
or the one in this post: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/msmaterialmenu-animating-icons.44735/page-2#post-291365
The first one is BARE MSMaterialMenu so it will solve your problem.
The second one includes other stuff (and will be deleted).
It is possible to get the menu animations with AppCompat, but currently the only way to access them AFAIK is: http://www.b4x.com/android/forum/th...-build-navigation-drawers-fast.52972/#content

Thank you for your reply. I was thinking where i was going wrong. I added back the first one back and i got this error. I will wait for the final library until then i will use the normal dialogs.
