Android Chips Edit Text

Screenshot

This is a simple library based on Google's internal chips library and updated to have visuals reflecting the newly released "Material Design" standard as seen here.

Usage is extremely simple:

// creates an autocomplete for phone number contacts
final RecipientEditTextView phoneRetv =
        (RecipientEditTextView) findViewById(R.id.phone_retv);
phoneRetv.setTokenizer(new MultiAutoCompleteTextView.CommaTokenizer());
BaseRecipientAdapter baseRecipientAdapter = new BaseRecipientAdapter(BaseRecipientAdapter.QUERY_TYPE_PHONE, this);

// Queries for all phone numbers. Includes phone numbers marked as "mobile" and "others".
// If set as true, baseRecipientAdapter will query only for phone numbers marked as "mobile".  
baseRecipientAdapter.setShowMobileOnly(false);

phoneRetv.setAdapter(baseRecipientAdapter);

OR

// creates an autocomplete for email contacts
final RecipientEditTextView emailRetv =
        (RecipientEditTextView) findViewById(R.id.email_retv);
emailRetv.setTokenizer(new Rfc822Tokenizer());
emailRetv.setAdapter(new BaseRecipientAdapter(this));

You can get all of the current chips by using:

DrawableRecipientChip[] chips = phoneRetv.getSortedRecipients();
