Hi Guys, Welcome to Proto Coders Point. In this Android tutorial, we will learn how to create a custom dialog box with a floating image app logo.

Sometimes a simple & default android dialop popup is not suitable with our app UI, In that case we need to create a custom alert dialog layout design to show as a popup to a user.

Example: Check the below image, this is what we will achieve at the end.

Below are steps to achieve above android alert dialog.

Step 1: create a background for custom dialog layout

Create a XML file: dialog_bg.xml in drawable folder and copy paste the below code in it.

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

    android:insetLeft="5dp"
    android:insetTop="5dp"
    android:insetBottom="5dp"
    android:insetRight="5dp"
    >

    <shape android:shape="rectangle">
        <corners android:radius="20dp"/>
        <solid android:color="@color/white"/>
        <stroke android:width="5dp" android:color="#FFF"/>
    </shape>

</inset>

The above code is just to give a corner radius, solid color, and stroke to custom_dialog.xml background.


Step 2: Create a vector image(cancel image) and copy a logo image in drawable

Create vector assets image
Right click on drawable -> New -> Vector Assets & choose a cancel button.

We need a logo image file to show in dialog popup as a floating app logo, So just copy your app logo in drawable file.

Step 3: Creating a custom_dialog.xml layout file under layout folder

Now a main custom alert dialog layout design custom_dialog.xml, Under layout folder create a XML file custom_dialog.xml and copy below layout code and paste in it.

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

    <LinearLayout
        android:background="@drawable/dialog_bg"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginLeft="20dp"
        android:orientation="vertical"
        android:layout_marginRight="20dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="30dp">

        <ImageView
            android:id="@+id/cancel_button"
            android:layout_width="30dp"
            android:layout_height="30dp"
            android:background="@drawable/ic_cancel"
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
            android:layout_marginRight="10dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
            android:layout_gravity="right"/>

        <LinearLayout
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_marginBottom="20dp"
            android:layout_marginTop="20dp"
            android:layout_marginLeft="20dp"
            android:layout_marginRight="20dp"
            android:orientation="vertical">

            <TextView
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:layout_gravity="center"
                android:text="WELCOME TO PROTO CODERS POINT"
                android:textColor="#000"
                android:textStyle="bold|italic"
                />

            <TextView
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:layout_gravity="center"
                android:text="Please do like and Subscribe Us"
                android:textColor="#000"
                android:textStyle="bold|italic"
                />

            <Button
                android:layout_width="wrap_content"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:text="OK"
                android:gravity="center"
                android:layout_gravity="center"
                android:layout_marginTop="10dp"/>


        </LinearLayout>

    </LinearLayout>

    <ImageView
        android:layout_width="70dp"
        android:layout_height="70dp"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
        android:background="@drawable/logo"
        />

</RelativeLayout>

This code defines different views inside a custom dialog layout, it has 2 imageview, one for App logo and another for cancel vector image and 2 TextView and a ‘OK’ button.


Step 4: activity_main.xml add a button

In activity_main.xml file will add a button, when a user clicks on that button will show android dialog.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout 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"
    tools:context=".MainActivity"
    android:gravity="center">

    <Button
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Show Dialog"
        android:id="@+id/showdialog"
        />

</LinearLayout>

Step 5: MainActivity.xml on click show alert dialog in android

On Button click create a custom dialog in android and show it to the user.

MainActivity.java

package example.on.dialog_popup;


import androidx.appcompat.app.AlertDialog;
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.graphics.Color;
import android.graphics.drawable.ColorDrawable;
import android.media.Image;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.ImageView;


public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    Button showdialog;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        //find the view
        showdialog = (Button)findViewById(R.id.showdialog);

       // when clicked 
        showdialog.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                 ImageView cancel;
                 //will create a view of our custom dialog layout
                 View alertCustomdialog = LayoutInflater.from(MainActivity.this).inflate(R.layout.custom_dialog,null);
                //initialize alert builder.
                AlertDialog.Builder alert = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);
                
                //set our custom alert dialog to tha alertdialog builder
                alert.setView(alertCustomdialog);
                cancel = (ImageView)alertCustomdialog.findViewById(R.id.cancel_button);

                final AlertDialog dialog = alert.create();

                //this line removed app bar from dialog and make it transperent and you see the image is like floating outside dialog box.
                dialog.getWindow().setBackgroundDrawable(new ColorDrawable(Color.TRANSPARENT));

                //finally show the dialog box in android all
                dialog.show();

                cancel.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onClick(View view) {
                        dialog.dismiss();
                    }
                });


            }
        });

    }
}
