Installation

In your project's build.gradle file add the following line to the dependencies group:

compile 'it.sephiroth.android.library.bottomnavigation:bottom-navigation:2.0.1-rc1'

Usage

Usage of the BottomNavigation widget is very easy. Just place it in your layout.xml like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout android:id="@+id/CoordinatorLayout01"
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fitsSystemWindows="true">

    ...your content...

    <it.sephiroth.android.library.bottomnavigation.BottomNavigation
        android:id="@+id/BottomNavigation"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="bottom"
        app:bbn_entries="@menu/bottombar_menu_4items"
        app:bbn_scrollEnabled="true"
        app:bbn_badgeProvider="@string/bbn_badgeProvider"
        app:layout_behavior="@string/bbn_phone_view_behavior" />
</android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout>

All the menu main configurations are defined within the xml menu resource itself. Here's an example of a menu with 4 items:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:background="@android:color/black"
    app:bbn_badgeColor="#FFFF0000"
    app:bbn_rippleColor="#33ffffff">
    <item
        android:id="@+id/bbn_item1"
        android:color="@color/colorPrimary"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_cloud_off_white_24dp"
        android:title="Cloud Sync" />
    <item
        android:id="@+id/bbn_item2"
        android:color="@android:color/holo_green_dark"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_cast_connected_white_24dp"
        android:title="Chromecast" />
    <item
        android:id="@+id/bbn_item3"
        android:color="@android:color/holo_orange_dark"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_mail_white_24dp"
        android:title="Mail" />
    <item
        android:id="@+id/action4"
        android:color="#FF5252"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_format_list_numbered_white_24dp"
        android:title="List" />
</menu>

Tablets

The View supports tablet mode too (Left or Right). In order to enable tablet mode this is the configuration that should be used:

<it.sephiroth.android.library.bottomnavigation.BottomNavigation
    android:id="@+id/BottomNavigation"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_gravity="start"
    app:bbn_entries="@menu/bottombar_menu_3items"
    app:bbn_badgeProvider="@string/bbn_badgeProvider"
    app:layout_behavior="@string/bbn_tablet_view_behavior" />

Styling

The xml menu supports the following attributes in the <menu> tag:

<declare-styleable name="BottomNavigationMenu">
    <!-- menu default background color -->
    <attr name="android:background" />

    <!-- default badge color -->
    <attr name="bbn_badgeColor" format="color" />

    <!-- animation duration for the menu items -->
    <attr name="bbn_itemAnimationDuration" format="integer" />

    <!-- ripple selector color -->
    <attr name="bbn_rippleColor" format="color" />

    <!-- menu item active color -->
    <attr name="bbn_itemColorActive" format="color" />

    <!-- menu item inactive color -->
    <attr name="bbn_itemColorInactive" format="color" />

    <!-- menu item disabled color -->
    <attr name="bbn_itemColorDisabled" format="color" />

    <!-- force fixed behavior and always display item labels -->
    <!-- default implementation is false and the labels are -->
    <!-- shown only if there are less than 4 items in the menu -->
    <attr name="bbn_alwaysShowLabels" format="boolean" />
</declare-styleable>

Note: By default when there are 4 or 5 elements, only the selected item will display the label. In order to force all the items to always show their label, use bbn_alwaysShowLabels in the menu xml.

Badges

Badges

There's a basic support for badges using the default implementation. In order to display a badge in the current BottomNavigation view, all you have to do is:

    final BadgeProvider provider = bottomNavigationView.getBadgeProvider();
    provider.show(R.id.bbn_item3);

This code will show a little circle badge on the menu item with the id "bbn_item3".
You can define the default badge color inside the menu xml itself:

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    app:bbn_badgeColor="#FFFF0000">

    <item
        android:id="@+id/bbn_item1"
        android:color="@color/colorPrimary"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_cloud_off_white_24dp"
        android:title="Cloud Sync" />

    ...
</menu>

Then you can hide the badge using:

    bottomNavigation.getBadgeProvider().remove(R.id.bbn_item3);

Badges Customization

You can use your own Drawable by extending the BadgeProvider class. Once you've setup your new class you can tell the BottomNavigation view to use your class by specifying it in the "bbn_badgeProvider" attribute of your xml file.
For instance:

<it.sephiroth.android.library.bottomnavigation.BottomNavigation
    android:id="@id/BottomNavigation"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_gravity="bottom"
    app:bbn_badgeProvider="my.custom.BadgeProviderCustom"
    app:bbn_entries="@menu/bottombar_menu_4items"
    app:layout_behavior="@string/bbn_phone_view_behavior" />

This will make your my.custom.BadgeProviderCustom the default BadgeProvider.
