B4A Library Preferences - Material Design Preferences

This library provides a framework to create nice looking Material Design Preferences down to API9. It uses this GitHub project to fix some bugs in the android support preferences stuff. It also adds some nice features like simple icon tinting, simple menu list preferences and a color picker.

For a guide on how to implement settings for Material Design read this.

Installation:
  • Extract all of the PreferencesLibX_XX.zip file to your additional libraries folder. These are .xml, .jar, 4 .aar files.
  • Requires AppCompat library.
  • Requires B4A 6.31+
minimum SDK Version: 14
Needs support library 27

If you are updating you can delete the old library aar files.

Your Support:
Creating libraries and wrappers for existing library projects is a lot of work. The use of this library is totally free and you even don't need to mention in your app that you use it.
But if you use this library in your projects and you think it is useful to you please consider to make a donation:

Thanks very much for your support.

Usage:

You need to use AppCompat Library together with this library.
Don't forget to add the Preference library to your project.

1. Enhance your theme in manifest editor
Add a preferenceTheme item and the two items for the IconTint:
B4X:
CreateResource(values, theme.xml,
<resources>
    <style name="MyAppTheme" parent="@style/Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
        <item name="colorPrimary">#0098FF</item>
        <item name="colorPrimaryDark">#007CF5</item>
        <item name="colorAccent">#FF5522</item>
        <item name="windowNoTitle">true</item>
        <item name="windowActionBar">false</item>
        <item name="preferenceTheme">@style/PreferenceThemeOverlay.Material</item>
        <item name="asp_preferenceIconTint">?colorAccent</item>
        <item name="asp_preferenceDialogIconTint">?asp_preferenceIconTint</item>
        <item name="windowActionModeOverlay">true</item>
    </style>
</resources>
)

2. Extend from AppCompatPreferenceActivity
B4X:
#Extends: de.amberhome.preferences.AppCompatPreferenceActivity

3. Add PreferenceView to your Layout (with designer or by code)
DesignerPreferenceView.png

4. Load the Layout in Activity_Create() as normal

5. Create your Preference elements in PreferenceView_Ready() event.

See the example for detailed usage.

The example has minSdkVersion set to 14. This is because the MaterialDateTimePicker needs this. The Preference library itself will work with a minimal SDK version of 9.

The example projects additionally needs MaterialDateTimePicker, XMLLayoutBuilder and DateUtils libraries.

I will check out the example and see if the behavior is the same.

See the material design guidelines for Settings. There is nothing like a popup defined.

If a setting needs futher explanation the setting should be put on its own page (activity) with a detailed description. This is explained in the design guide (See the screen with magnification gestures).

Is it possible to have different sets of preferences in the same application?
A quick and dirty method would be add a prefix to the preference name where the prefix would define the "set" but is there a better way such as defining the name of the preference file?

Hi all,

I've used this wonderfull lib in my app and I'm very satisfied of it except for a little problem when the keyboard popup (I've the same behaviour on the lib example).

When I edit a text preference the softkey keyboard popup as expected Screenshot_2017-04-14-15-45-01.png but when I click on NOWAY or OK buttons the numeric pad doesn't disappear but becomes a standard keyboard.Screenshot_2017-04-14-15-45-08.png

I must click on FATTO (done) before

Honestly I wouldn't know what to check, any advice?

Tks

@corwin42 - Thank you so much for this library and all material design library you've shared.
I have one question with the AddListPreference function: how to use CSBuilder to show formatted Item please?

I used this code but doesn't work, the typeface remain unchanged in the preference activity:

B4X:
    Dim lstSigneZodiaque As ListPreference
    Dim cs() As String = Array As String("","","")
    Dim csb As CSBuilder
    Dim ty As Typeface
    ty = Typeface.LoadFromAssets("velezodiac.ttf")
    csb.Initialize.Typeface(ty).Append("P Y S Q T").PopAll
    cs(0) = csb
    csb.Initialize.Typeface(ty).Append("p y s q t").PopAll
    cs(1) = csb
    csb.Initialize.Typeface(ty).Append("B K E C F").PopAll
    cs(2) = csb
    lstSigneZodiaque = cat1.AddListPreference("","IconeSigneZodiaque", "Kisary mifanaraka amin'ny andro","Misafidiana anaty lisitra", "0", Array As String(0, 1, 2), cs)

Thank you so much
