Custom Title Bar in ANDROID

Hi all….

Today in this post I will show you how to give a custom layout for the titleBar in ANDROID.
You can place almost anything inside a title using your custom layout.

Now go on and create a fresh project and copy this code into the main java file

package pack.coderzheaven;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Window;
import android.widget.ProgressBar;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class CustomTitleDemo extends Activity {
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        Boolean customTitleSupported = requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_CUSTOM_TITLE);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);

        if (customTitleSupported) {
            getWindow().setFeatureInt(Window.FEATURE_CUSTOM_TITLE,R.layout.custom_title);
            TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.tv);
            tv.setText("CoderzHeaven");

            ProgressBar titleProgressBar = (ProgressBar) findViewById(R.id.PB);
            //titleProgressBar.setVisibility(ProgressBar.GONE);
        }
    }
}

Now create a new xml file and name it custom_title.xml and copy the following code to it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout android:id="@+id/RelativeLayout01"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">.

        <ImageView android:layout_width="40dip"
				android:id="@+id/ImageView01"
				android:background="@drawable/android_2"
				android:layout_height="40dip"
				>
		</ImageView>

        <TextView android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:id="@+id/tv"
                android:text="CoderzHeaven"
                android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/ImageView01"
                android:textColor="@drawable/red"
                android:textStyle="bold"
                android:layout_marginLeft="5dip"
                android:layout_marginRight="5dip">
        </TextView>

		 <ProgressBar android:id="@+id/PB"
                style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleSmall"
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:layout_centerVertical="true"
                android:layout_toRightOf="@+id/tv"
                android:paddingLeft="3dip">
         </ProgressBar>
</RelativeLayout>

Note: remember to have images mentioned here in the drawable folder.

Now the strings.xml file where the color is defined.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <string name="hello">Hello World, Custom Title Bar from CoderzHeaven</string>
    <drawable name="white">#ffffff</drawable>
    <drawable name="black">#000000</drawable>
	<drawable name="blue">#2554C7</drawable>
	<drawable name="green">#347C2C</drawable>
	<drawable name="orange">#ff9900</drawable>
	<drawable name="pink">#FF00FF</drawable>
	<drawable name="violet">#a020f0</drawable>
	<drawable name="grey">#778899</drawable>
	<drawable name="red">#C11B17</drawable>
	<drawable name="yellow">#FFFF8C</drawable>
	<drawable name="PowderBlue">#b0e0e6</drawable>
	<drawable name="brown">#2F1700</drawable>
	<drawable name="Hotpink">#7D2252</drawable>
</resources>

Atlast the AndroidManifest.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
      package="pack.coderzheaven"
      android:versionCode="1"
      android:versionName="1.0">
    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="CustomTitleDemo">
        <activity android:name=".CustomTitleDemo"
                  android:label="CustomTitleDemo">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>
</manifest>
