CookieBar 2

CookieBar is a lightweight library for showing a brief message at the top or bottom of the screen.

implementation 'org.aviran.cookiebar2:cookiebar2:1.1.0'


Main differences from the original Cookiebar library are:

  • Swipe to dismiss has been added.
  • Programmatic dismiss functionality added.
  • Only one Cookie can be displayed at a time (New top cookie will dismiss the current top one if exists).
  • Message view captures clicks, blocks downward propagation.
  • Slightly different build interface.
  • Icon animator support.
  • Custom layout can be applied to a cookie.
  • Colors presets added.
  • Root view can be overridden and customized.
  • Removed supportRtl / allowBackup from library scope (Set at app level when necessary).

Create a simple cookie

Using Kotlin
         .setTitle("TITLE")         // String resources are also supported
         .setMessage("MESSAGE")     // i.e. R.string.message
         .show()                    // Cookies are displayed at the top by default

Using Java
         .setCookiePosition(CookieBar.BOTTOM)  // Cookie will be displayed at the bottom
         .show();                              // of the screen

Customize colors, icon, icon animation, call to action button, display duration
         .setAction(R.string.action_text, new OnActionClickListener() {
             public void onClick() {
                // Do something
         .setDuration(5000) // 5 seconds

Customize in/out animation
         .setAnimationIn(android.R.anim.slide_in_left, android.R.anim.slide_in_left)
         .setAnimationOut(android.R.anim.slide_out_right, android.R.anim.slide_out_right)

Programmatically dismiss cookies currently being displayed


Create a cookie with a custom layout - Create a dialog!

/* setCustomView -  Set the layout resource for your custom cookie view.
   setCustomViewInitializer - Called after layout inflation, for subview setup. */
         .setCustomViewInitializer(new CookieBar.CustomViewInitializer() {
                  public void initView(View view) {

                           Button btnNew = view.findViewById(;
                           Button btnOpen = view.findViewById(;
                           Button btnSave = view.findViewById(;

                           View.OnClickListener btnListener = new View.OnClickListener() {

                                    public void onClick(View view) {
                                             Button button = (Button) view;

         .setAction("Close", new OnActionClickListener() {
                  public void onClick() {
         .setEnableAutoDismiss(false) // Cookie will stay on display until manually dismissed
         .setSwipeToDismiss(false)    // Deny dismiss by swiping off the view

Change default cookie style by setting theme attributes

<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
   <item name="cookieTitleColor">@color/default_title_color</item>
   <item name="cookieMessageColor">@color/default_message_color</item>
   <item name="cookieActionColor">@color/default_action_color</item>
   <item name="cookieBackgroundColor">@color/default_bg_color</item>

Dynamically set cookie properties

  • Cookie position (Top/Bottom)
  • Display duration
  • Title text color
  • Body text color
  • Action text color
  • Background color
  • Icon resource
  • Icon animation
  • In/Out animations for the entire view
  • View layout
