How to draw rounded rectangle in Android UI?

Questions:

I need to draw a rounded rectangle in the Android UI. Having the same rounded rectangle for TextView and EditText would also be helpful.

How to&Answers:

In your layout xml do the following:

<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="rectangle">

    <solid android:color="@android:color/holo_red_dark" />

    <corners android:radius="32dp" />

</shape>

By changing the android:radius you can change the amount of “radius” of the corners.

<solid> is used to define the color of the drawable.

You can use replace android:radius with android:bottomLeftRadius, android:bottomRightRadius, android:topLeftRadius and android:topRightRadius to define radius for each corner.

Answer:

I think, this is you exactly needed.

Here drawable(xml) file that creates rounded rectangle.
round_rect_shape.xml

<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="rectangle" >

    <solid android:color="#ffffff" />

    <corners
        android:bottomLeftRadius="8dp"
        android:bottomRightRadius="8dp"
        android:topLeftRadius="8dp"
        android:topRightRadius="8dp" />

</shape>

Here layout file: my_layout.xml

<LinearLayout
    android:id="@+id/linearLayout1"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:background="@drawable/round_rect_shape"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    android:padding="5dp" >

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView1"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Something text"
        android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge"
        android:textColor="#ff0000" />

    <EditText
        android:id="@+id/editText1"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

        <requestFocus />
    </EditText>
</LinearLayout>

-> In the above code, LinearLayout having the background(That is the key role to place to create rounded rectangle).
So you can place any view like TextView, EditText… in that LinearLayout to see background as round rectangle for all.

Answer:

In monodroid, you can do like this for rounded rectangle, and then keeping this as a parent class, editbox and other layout features can be added.

 class CustomeView : TextView
    {
       public CustomeView (Context context, IAttributeSet ) : base (context, attrs)  
        {  
        }
       public CustomeView(Context context, IAttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) : base(context, attrs, defStyle)  
        {  
        }
       protected override void OnDraw(Android.Graphics.Canvas canvas)
       {
           base.OnDraw(canvas);
           Paint p = new Paint();
           p.Color = Color.White;
           canvas.DrawColor(Color.DarkOrange);

           Rect rect = new Rect(0,0,3,3);

           RectF rectF = new RectF(rect);


           canvas.DrawRoundRect( rectF, 1,1, p);



       }  
    }
}

Answer:

<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:padding="10dp"
  android:shape="rectangle">
    <solid android:color="@color/colorAccent" /> 
    <corners
      android:bottomLeftRadius="500dp"
      android:bottomRightRadius="500dp"
      android:topLeftRadius="500dp"
      android:topRightRadius="500dp" />
</shape>

Now, in which element you want to use this shape just add:
android:background="@drawable/custom_round_ui_shape"

Create a new XML in drawable named “custom_round_ui_shape”

Answer:

Use CardView for Round Rectangle. CardView give more functionality like cardCornerRadius, cardBackgroundColor, cardElevation & many more. CardView make UI more suitable then Custom Round Rectangle drawable.

Answer:

Right_click on the drawable and create new layout xml file in the name of for example button_background.xml.
then copy and paste the following code.
You can change it according your need.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:shape="rectangle">
<corners
android:radius="14dp" />
<solid android:color="@color/colorButton" />
<padding
android:bottom="0dp"
android:left="0dp"
android:right="0dp"
android:top="0dp" />
<size
android:width="120dp"
android:height="40dp" />
</shape>

Now you can use it.

<Button
android:background="@drawable/button_background"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

Answer:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="rectangle">
    <solid android:color="@android:color/white" />
    <corners android:radius="4dp" />
</shape>

Answer:

You could just define a new xml background in the drawables folder

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:shape="rectangle">
<solid android:color="enter_your_desired_color_here" />
<corners android:radius="enter_your_desired_radius_the_corners" />
</shape>  

After this just include it in your TextView or EditText
by defining it in the background.

<TextView
 android:id="@+id/textView"
 android:layout_width="0dp"
 android:layout_height="80dp"
 android:background="YOUR_FILE_HERE"
 Android:layout_weight="1"
 android:gravity="center"
 android:text="TEXT_HERE"
 android:textSize="40sp" />
