android – Dialog box with EditText and Spinner

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have a button that pops up with a dialog box on click.

I want the dialog box to have an EditText and a Spinner inside the dialog box.

I don’t know how I’d set the view for it, I have the code for an AlertDialog and it works, it’s just the EditText and Spinner that I need to place inside it then I can get on with the rest of the app’s code.

Please can someone show me how I’d add an EditText and Spinner please?

How to&Answers:

Two options I can think of:

1) Use AlertDialog‘s setView method.

2) Create an Activity with

android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Dialog"

in your AndroidManifest.

Number one should be easier to do while number two will give you more flexibility.

Answer:

You can create your own customdialog. Declare your views in a layout and load it with the help of AlertDialog like the one mentioned in the sample:
