TextInputLayout:

 style="@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlinedBox"

dependencies

implementation 'com.android.support:design:28.0.0-alpha1' 

XML

   <android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout
   android:id="@+id/name_text_input"
   style="@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlinedBox"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"
   >

   <android.support.design.widget.TextInputEditText
       android:id="@+id/name_edit_text"

UPDATE

Also working fine with

implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:28.0.0'
implementation 'com.android.support:design:28.0.0'

Using implementation 'com.android.support:design:28.0.0-alpha1' I’m getting below error

Cannot resolve symbol ‘@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlineBox’

Solution

Make below changes in your Build.Gradle

Sample code

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

Answer:

You need to add this dependency to your “module level” build.gradle com.google.android.material to use latest material UI components.

Use this style in your com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout then,

style="@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlinedBox"

Checkout from here


If you’re using com.android.support:design library then you
should change your app style to Theme.MaterialComponents...Bridge
(I.e. like change style from Theme.AppCompat.Light to Theme.MaterialComponents.Light.Bridge)

first,

Next, you have to use this style in your
android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout:

style="@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlinedBox"

Answer:

With the migration to androidx libraries you have to use the new Material Components for android library.

Use the TextInputLayout component:

<com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:hint="@string/hint_text">

  <com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputEditText
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

</com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout>

And apply this style:

style="@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlinedBox"

enter image description here

Requirements:

  • you have to add this dependencies in your build.gradle file

    implementation 'com.google.android.material:material:<version>'

  • apply a Material Components theme

    <style name="Theme.MyApp" parent="Theme.MaterialComponents">

Answer:

If you are using appcompact library then you can go with this android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout

if you are using ANDROIDX build so I come to one conclusion who is having latest code according to android jetpack.

For using this you need to have this dependencies in your app gradle

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.google.android.material:material:1.0.0'
}

then this way you can add to your xml for the UI element

<com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout
    android:id="@+id/messageTextInputLayout"
    style="@style/Widget.MaterialComponents.TextInputLayout.OutlinedBox"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_margin="10dp">

        <com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputEditText
            android:id="@+id/passwordTextInputEditText"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:hint="Enter Text here" />

</com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout>
