SAutoBgButton for Android

A subclass of the Button widget that automatically darkens the button's background drawable when pressed, and sets it to transparent when disabled. This is inspired by iOS' automatic handling of custom background images for buttons.

See the blog post here

Usage

  1. Copy and paste the net folder into your Android project's src folder.
  2. Replace your button declarations to use net.shikii.widgets.SAutoBgButton instead of just Button:

    From this:

    <Button
      android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:background="@drawable/button_blue_bg"
      android:text="Button with background image" />
    

    To this:

    <net.shikii.widgets.SAutoBgButton
      android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:background="@drawable/button_blue_bg"
      android:text="Button with background image" />
    

Here's a sample output using this custom button:
