Is it possible to use VectorDrawable in Buttons and TextViews using android:DrawableRight?

When I use VectorDrawable assets in a textview or imageview I get a runtime crash when using "android:DrawableRight" / "android:DrawableEnd" / "android:DrawableStart" / "android:DrawableLeft".

The app will compile fine without any warnings.

I am using

  • Gradle 1.5
  • Support Library 23.2 ('com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.2.0')

What I have found though is that I can programmatically assign SVG's in Java without crashes like this.

TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView);
tv.setCompoundDrawablesWithIntrinsicBounds(null,null, getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_accessible_white_36px),null);

(I suspect this is a support library bug for 23.2.)

But is it possible to use drawableRight etc for SVG assets ?

Here is my layout

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context="au.com.angryitguy.testsvg.MainActivity">


<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:drawableRight="@drawable/ic_accessible_white_36px"
    android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
    android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
    android:textSize="22sp"
    android:text="Hello World!"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Here is my Activity

package au.com.angryitguy.testsvg;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        }
    }

Here is the unmodified VectorDrawable asset from Google's material design site.

<vector android:height="24dp" android:viewportHeight="24.0"
    android:viewportWidth="24.0" android:width="24dp" xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

Here is my app build.gradle

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.2"

    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "au.com.angryitguy.testsvg"
        minSdkVersion 16
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
        // Stops the Gradle plugin’s automatic rasterization of vectors
        generatedDensities = []
    }
    // Flag to tell aapt to keep the attribute ids around
    aaptOptions {
        additionalParameters "--no-version-vectors"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.2.0'
}

Here is the crash. (Note the inflate errors that reference the textview.)

Answers


it possible to use drawableRight etc for SVG assets ?

Yes

AppCompatTextView now supports app:drawableLeftCompat, app:drawableTopCompat, app:drawableRightCompat, app:drawableBottomCompat, app:drawableStartCompat and app:drawableEndCompat compound drawables, supporting backported drawable types such as VectorDrawableCompat.

Include this in your gradle file

implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.1.0-alpha01'

In your text view you can use

app:drawableLeftCompat
app:drawableStartCompat

Old Answer

Because it seems Google not going to do anything about this issue any time soon, I had to came up with a more solid reusable solution for all of my apps:

  1. First add custom TextView attributes in attrs.xml file of your app "res/values/attrs.xml" :

    <resources>
        <declare-styleable name="CustomTextView">
            <attr name="drawableStartCompat" format="reference"/>
            <attr name="drawableEndCompat" format="reference"/>
            <attr name="drawableTopCompat" format="reference"/>
            <attr name="drawableBottomCompat" format="reference"/>
        </declare-styleable>
    </resources>
    
  2. Then create custom TextView class like this:

    import android.content.Context;
    import android.content.res.TypedArray;
    import android.graphics.drawable.Drawable;
    import android.os.Build;
    import android.support.v7.content.res.AppCompatResources;
    import android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatTextView;
    import android.util.AttributeSet;
    
    public class CustomTextView extends AppCompatTextView {
        public CustomTextView(Context context) {
            super(context);
        }    
        public CustomTextView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
            super(context, attrs);
            initAttrs(context, attrs);
        }
        public CustomTextView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyleAttr) {
            super(context, attrs, defStyleAttr);
            initAttrs(context, attrs);
        }
    
        void initAttrs(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
            if (attrs != null) {
                TypedArray attributeArray = context.obtainStyledAttributes(
                        attrs,
                        R.styleable.CustomTextView);
    
                Drawable drawableStart = null;
                Drawable drawableEnd = null;
                Drawable drawableBottom = null;
                Drawable drawableTop = null;
                if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP) {
                    drawableStart = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableStartCompat);
                    drawableEnd = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableEndCompat);
                    drawableBottom = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableBottomCompat);
                    drawableTop = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableTopCompat);
                } else {
                    final int drawableStartId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableStartCompat, -1);
                    final int drawableEndId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableEndCompat, -1);
                    final int drawableBottomId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableBottomCompat, -1);
                    final int drawableTopId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableTopCompat, -1);
    
                    if (drawableStartId != -1)
                        drawableStart = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableStartId);
                    if (drawableEndId != -1)
                        drawableEnd = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableEndId);
                    if (drawableBottomId != -1)
                        drawableBottom = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableBottomId);
                    if (drawableTopId != -1)
                        drawableTop = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableTopId);
                }
    
                // to support rtl
                setCompoundDrawablesRelativeWithIntrinsicBounds(drawableStart, drawableTop, drawableEnd, drawableBottom);
                attributeArray.recycle();
            }
        }
    }
    
  3. Now you can use it easily in any layouts by your custom attributes:

    <YOUR_VIEW_PACKAGE.CustomTextView
        android:id="@+id/edt_my_edit_text"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:drawableStartCompat="@drawable/your_vector_drawable" <!-- vector drawable -->
        app:drawableEndCompat="@drawable/your_vector_drawable" <!-- vector drawable -->
        app:drawableTopCompat="@drawable/your_vector_drawable" <!-- vector drawable -->
        app:drawableBottomCompat="@drawable/your_vector_drawable" <!-- vector drawable -->
        />
    
    • You can do similar thing with Button, EditText and RadioButton because they derived from TextView

Hope this helps :)


This solution is no longer correct. From 23.3.0 version vector drawables can only be loaded via app:srcCompat or setImageResource()

Try to wrap your vector drawable into layer-list or selector:

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:drawableRight="@drawable/ic_accessible_white_wrapped"
    android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
    android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
    android:textSize="22sp"
    android:text="Hello World!"/>

ic_accessible_white_wrapped.xml:

<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:drawable="@drawable/ic_accessible_white_36px"/>
</layer-list>

The best way I found:

Drawable leftDrawable = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(this, R.drawable.ic_search);
search.setCompoundDrawablesWithIntrinsicBounds(leftDrawable, null, null, null);

To complement some of the answers here: you can get VectorDrawable to work as drawableLeft (etc.) but it depends on the Support Library version and it comes with a price.

In which cases does it work? I've made this diagram to help (valid for Support Library 23.4.0 to - at least - 25.1.0).


None of the other answers worked, here's how I've added a VectorDrawable to a TextView, you should use VectorDrawableCompat.create() when dealing with VectorDrawables below Android L:

TextView titleTextView = (TextView) viewHolder.getView(android.R.id.text1);
if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP)
{
       Drawable leftDrawable = AppCompatResources
                            .getDrawable(context, R.drawable.ic_tickbox);
       titleTextView.setCompoundDrawablesWithIntrinsicBounds(leftDrawable, null, null, null);
}
else
{
      //Safely create our VectorDrawable on pre-L android versions. 
       Drawable leftDrawable = VectorDrawableCompat
                            .create(context.getResources(), R.drawable.ic_tickbox, null);
       titleTextView.setCompoundDrawablesWithIntrinsicBounds(leftDrawable, null, null, null);
}

Short, sweet, and to the point!


From Google: As of Android Support Library 23.3.0, support vector drawables can only be loaded via app:srcCompat or setImageResource()..

http://android-developers.blogspot.ru/2016/02/android-support-library-232.html


It is possible to directly set vector drawables in xml, but you have include the data binding framework.

Just write

<TextView
...
android:drawableRight="@{@drawable/ic_accessible_white_36px}"/>

and wrap your whole layout in a <layout> tag, so basically your xml would look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<layout>

    <RelativeLayout
        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
        android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
        android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
        android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
        tools:context="au.com.angryitguy.testsvg.MainActivity">


        <TextView
            android:id="@+id/textView"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
            android:drawableRight="@{@drawable/ic_accessible_white_36px}"
            android:text="Hello World!"
            android:textColor="#FFFFFF"
            android:textSize="22sp"/>
    </RelativeLayout>
</layout>

To activate the data binding framework just add

android {
    ....
    defaultConfig {
        dataBinding {
            enabled = true
        }
    }
}

You don't have to use any other features of the binding library

EDIT:

Of course if you want to use vector drawables pre-Lollipop your have to enable support vector drawables using

vectorDrawables.useSupportLibrary = true

So your build.gradle needs 2 new commands:

android {
    ....
    defaultConfig {
        vectorDrawables.useSupportLibrary = true
        dataBinding {
            enabled = true
        }
    }
}

thanks to rkmax for the remark


I am so late to answer this question as I stucked late with this problem. I had the same issue with svg/vector drawables with TextView. Instead of making your own custom drawable I am able to fix my problem with 2 lines of code as below:

Drawable drawableTop = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(view.getContext(), iconId);
view.setCompoundDrawablesWithIntrinsicBounds(null, drawableTop, null, null);

Hope it will help you out.


I went thru all answers and using latest Android studio 3.0.1 and appcompat support library 26.1.0 i can assure this just works fine.

In build.gradle (app) file

android {
    compileSdkVersion 26
    defaultConfig {
        vectorDrawables.useSupportLibrary = true
    }
}

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:26.1.0'
}

And in Activity extending AppcompatActivity include this outside methods ie a static block

static {
    AppCompatDelegate.setCompatVectorFromResourcesEnabled(true);
}  

or if you want this to be applied to whole app just include this line inside Class extending Application Class

override fun onCreate() {
    super.onCreate()
    AppCompatDelegate.setCompatVectorFromResourcesEnabled(true)
}

Textview in xml

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:gravity="center"
    android:orientation="vertical">

<TextView
        android:id="@+id/passName"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:drawableLeft="@drawable/account_drawableleft_selector"
        android:drawablePadding="5dp"
        android:ellipsize="marquee"
        android:fontFamily="@font/montserrat_light_family"
        android:gravity="center_vertical"
        android:marqueeRepeatLimit="marquee_forever"
        android:paddingRight="10dp"
        android:scrollHorizontally="true"
        android:singleLine="true"
        android:textColor="@color/app_text_color"
        android:textSize="12sp"
        tools:text="Account Name" />
</LinearLayout>

account_drawableleft_selector.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:drawable="@drawable/ic_account_circle_24dp" /> <!-- checked -->
</selector>

as of appcompat:1.1.0 you can use

app:drawableLeftCompat
app:drawableStartCompat
...

If you are using binding, there is another magic way to have the same approach to use vectors in a TextView. Wrapping them like:

android:drawableLeft="@{@drawable/vector_ic_access_time_24px}"
android:drawableStart="@{@drawable/vector_ic_access_time_24px}"

That will magically work, I haven't investigated what's happening behind the scenes, but I guess the TextView is using the getDrawable method from the AppCompatResources or similar.


I've designed a tiny library for this - textview-rich-drawable (it also supports defining the compound-drawables' size and tinting).

<com.tolstykh.textviewrichdrawable.TextViewRichDrawable
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:text="Some text"
    app:compoundDrawableHeight="24dp"
    app:compoundDrawableWidth="24dp"
    app:drawableTopVector="@drawable/some_vector_drawble"
    app:drawableEndVector="@drawable/another_vector_drawable"
    app:drawableTint="@color/colorAccent" />

And the dependency

compile 'com.tolstykh.textviewrichdrawable:textview-rich-drawable:0.3.2'


In build.gradle (app) file

android {
    compileSdkVersion 26
    defaultConfig {
        vectorDrawables.useSupportLibrary = true
    }

    dataBinding {
        enabled = true
    }
}



public class BindingUtils {
    @BindingAdapter("android:drawableRight")
    public static void setDrawableStart(TextView textView, int resourceId) {
        Drawable drawable = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(textView.getContext(), resourceId);
        Drawable[] drawables = textView.getCompoundDrawables();
        textView.setCompoundDrawablesWithIntrinsicBounds(drawable,
                drawables[1], drawables[2], drawables[3]);
    } 
}

use (When Databinding)

android:drawableRight="@{viewModel.ResId}"

Or (Normal)

android:drawableRight="@{@drawable/ic_login_24dp}"

Based on Behzad Bahmanyar's answer, I noticed that I could not use android's normal attributes for normal png files:

android:drawableTop
android:drawableBottom
etc

because it would be replaced with null in

Drawable drawableTop = null;
...
setCompoundDrawablesRelativeWithIntrinsicBounds(drawableStart, drawableTop, drawableEnd, drawableBottom);

if the app:drawableTopCompat was not set, but android:drawableTop was (for eg).

Here is the full solution:

public class CustomTextView extends AppCompatTextView {
    private static final int NOT_SET = -1;
    private static final int LEFT = 0;
    private static final int START = 0;
    private static final int TOP = 1;
    private static final int RIGHT = 2;
    private static final int END = 2;
    private static final int BOTTOM = 3;

    public CustomTextView(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }

    public CustomTextView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
        initAttrs(context, attrs);
    }

    public CustomTextView(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyleAttr) {
        super(context, attrs, defStyleAttr);
        initAttrs(context, attrs);
    }

    void initAttrs(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        if (attrs == null) {
            return;
        }
        Drawable[] drawablesArr = getCompoundDrawables();

        TypedArray attributeArray = context.obtainStyledAttributes(attrs, R.styleable.CustomTextView);
        Drawable drawableStart = null;
        Drawable drawableEnd = null;
        Drawable drawableBottom = null;
        Drawable drawableTop = null;
        Drawable drawableLeft = null;
        Drawable drawableRight = null;

        if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP) {
            drawableStart = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableStartCompat);
            drawableEnd = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableEndCompat);
            drawableBottom = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableBottomCompat);
            drawableTop = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableTopCompat);
            drawableLeft = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableLeftCompat);
            drawableRight = attributeArray.getDrawable(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableRightCompat);
        } else {
            final int drawableStartId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableStartCompat, NOT_SET);
            final int drawableEndId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableEndCompat, NOT_SET);
            final int drawableBottomId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableBottomCompat, NOT_SET);
            final int drawableTopId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableTopCompat, NOT_SET);
            final int drawableLeftId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableLeftCompat, NOT_SET);
            final int drawableRightId = attributeArray.getResourceId(R.styleable.CustomTextView_drawableRightCompat, NOT_SET);

            if (drawableStartId != NOT_SET)
                drawableStart = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableStartId);
            if (drawableLeftId != NOT_SET)
                drawableLeft = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableLeftId);
            if (drawableEndId != NOT_SET)
                drawableEnd = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableEndId);
            if (drawableRightId != NOT_SET)
                drawableRight = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableRightId);
            if (drawableBottomId != NOT_SET)
                drawableBottom = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableBottomId);
            if (drawableTopId != NOT_SET)
                drawableTop = AppCompatResources.getDrawable(context, drawableTopId);
        }

        drawableStart = (drawableStart != null ? drawableStart : drawablesArr[START]);
        drawableLeft = (drawableLeft != null ? drawableLeft : drawablesArr[LEFT]);
        drawableStart = (drawableStart != null ? drawableStart : drawableLeft);

        drawableEnd = (drawableEnd != null ? drawableEnd : drawablesArr[END]);
        drawableRight = (drawableRight != null ? drawableRight : drawablesArr[RIGHT]);
        drawableEnd = (drawableEnd != null ? drawableEnd : drawableRight);

        drawableBottom = (drawableBottom != null ? drawableBottom : drawablesArr[BOTTOM]);
        drawableTop = (drawableTop != null ? drawableTop : drawablesArr[TOP]);

        if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.JELLY_BEAN_MR1) {
            setCompoundDrawablesRelativeWithIntrinsicBounds(drawableStart, drawableTop, drawableEnd, drawableBottom);
        } else {
            setCompoundDrawables(drawableStart, drawableTop, drawableEnd, drawableBottom);
        }

        attributeArray.recycle();
    }
}

Using Vector Drawables use

kotlin

 val drawable1 = VectorDrawableCompat.create(resources, R.drawable.ic_rb_username, theme)
        yourView.setCompoundDrawablesRelativeWithIntrinsicBounds( drawable1, null, null, null)

java

  Drawable drawable1 = VectorDrawableCompat.create(getResources(), R.drawable.ic_rb_username, getTheme());
        yourView.setCompoundDrawablesRelativeWithIntrinsicBounds( drawable1, null, null, null);
