with - custom alertdialog android




How do I display an alert dialog on Android? (16)

In Kotlin

fun showDialog(@NonNull context: Context, @NonNull title: String, @NonNull msg: String,
               @NonNull positiveBtnText: String, @Nullable negativeBtnText: String?,
               @NonNull positiveBtnClickListener: DialogInterface.OnClickListener,
               @Nullable negativeBtnClickListener: DialogInterface.OnClickListener): AlertDialog {
    val builder = AlertDialog.Builder(context)
            .setTitle(title)
            .setMessage(msg)
            .setCancelable(true)
            .setPositiveButton(positiveBtnText, positiveBtnClickListener)
    if (negativeBtnText != null)
        builder.setNegativeButton(negativeBtnText, negativeBtnClickListener)
    val alert = builder.create()
    alert.show()
    return alert
}

In Java

public static AlertDialog showDialog(@NonNull Context context, @NonNull String title, @NonNull String msg,
                                     @NonNull String positiveBtnText, @Nullable String negativeBtnText,
                                     @NonNull DialogInterface.OnClickListener positiveBtnClickListener,
                                     @Nullable DialogInterface.OnClickListener negativeBtnClickListener) {
    AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(context)
            .setTitle(title)
            .setMessage(msg)
            .setCancelable(true)
            .setPositiveButton(positiveBtnText, positiveBtnClickListener);
    if (negativeBtnText != null)
        builder.setNegativeButton(negativeBtnText, negativeBtnClickListener);
    AlertDialog alert = builder.create();
    alert.show();
    return alert;
}

I want to display a dialog/popup window with a message to the user that shows "Are you sure you want to delete this entry?" with one button that says 'Delete'. When Delete is touched, it should delete that entry, otherwise nothing.

I have written a click listener for those buttons, but how do I invoke a dialog or popup and its functionality?


I have created a dialog for asking a Person whether he wants to call a Person or not.

import android.app.Activity;
import android.app.AlertDialog;
import android.content.DialogInterface;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class Firstclass extends Activity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

        setContentView(R.layout.first);

        ImageView imageViewCall = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.ring_mig);

        imageViewCall.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v)
            {
                try
                {
                    showDialog("0728570527");
                }
                catch (Exception e)
                {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }
            }
        });
    }

    public void showDialog(final String phone) throws Exception
    {
        AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(Firstclass.this);

        builder.setMessage("Ring: " + phone);

        builder.setPositiveButton("Ring", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener()
        {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which)
            {
                Intent callIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_DIAL);// (Intent.ACTION_CALL);

                callIntent.setData(Uri.parse("tel:" + phone));

                startActivity(callIntent);

                dialog.dismiss();
            }
        });

        builder.setNegativeButton("Avbryt", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener()
        {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which)
            {
                dialog.dismiss();
            }
        });

        builder.show();
    }
}

Just a simple one! Create a dialog method, something like this anywhere in your Java class:

public void openDialog() {
    final Dialog dialog = new Dialog(context); // Context, this, etc.
    dialog.setContentView(R.layout.dialog_demo);
    dialog.setTitle(R.string.dialog_title);
    dialog.show();
}

Now create Layout XML dialog_demo.xml and create your UI/design. Here is a sample one I created for demo purposes:

<?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="wrap_content">

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/dialog_info"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:padding="10dp"
        android:text="@string/dialog_text"/>

    <LinearLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="40dp"
        android:layout_below="@id/dialog_info">

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/dialog_cancel"
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:layout_weight="0.50"
            android:background="@color/dialog_cancel_bgcolor"
            android:text="Cancel"/>

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/dialog_ok"
            android:layout_width="0dp"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:layout_weight="0.50"
            android:background="@color/dialog_ok_bgcolor"
            android:text="Agree"/>
    </LinearLayout>
</RelativeLayout>

Now you can call openDialog() from anywhere you like :) Here is the screenshot of above code.

Note that text and color are used from strings.xml and colors.xml. You can define your own.


Just be careful when you want to dismiss the dialog - use dialog.dismiss(). In my first attempt I used dismissDialog(0) (which I probably copied from some place) which sometimes works. Using the object the system supplies sounds like a safer choice.


The code which David Hedlund has posted gave me the error:

Unable to add window — token null is not valid

If you are getting the same error use the below code. It works!!

runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
    @Override
    public void run() {

        if (!isFinishing()){
            new AlertDialog.Builder(YourActivity.this)
              .setTitle("Your Alert")
              .setMessage("Your Message")
              .setCancelable(false)
              .setPositiveButton("ok", new OnClickListener() {
                  @Override
                  public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                      // Whatever...
                  }
              }).show();
        }
    }
});

This is a basic sample of how to create an Alert Dialog :

AlertDialog.Builder dialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);
dialog.setCancelable(false);
dialog.setTitle("Dialog on Android");
dialog.setMessage("Are you sure you want to delete this entry?" );
dialog.setPositiveButton("Delete", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
        //Action for "Delete".
    }
})
        .setNegativeButton("Cancel ", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
            //Action for "Cancel".
            }
        });

final AlertDialog alert = dialog.create();
alert.show();


Try this code:

AlertDialog.Builder builder1 = new AlertDialog.Builder(context);
builder1.setMessage("Write your message here.");
builder1.setCancelable(true);

builder1.setPositiveButton(
    "Yes",
    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
            dialog.cancel();
        }
    });

builder1.setNegativeButton(
    "No",
    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
            dialog.cancel();
        }
    });

AlertDialog alert11 = builder1.create();
alert11.show();

Use AlertDialog.Builder

    AlertDialog alertDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
            //set icon 
             .setIcon(android.R.drawable.ic_dialog_alert)
            //set title
            .setTitle("Are you sure to Exit")
            //set message
            .setMessage("Exiting will call finish() method")
            //set positive button
            .setPositiveButton("Yes", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                @Override
                public void onClick(DialogInterface dialogInterface, int i) {
               //set what would happen when positive button is clicked    
                    finish();
                }
            })
            //set negative button
            .setNegativeButton("No", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                @Override
                public void onClick(DialogInterface dialogInterface, int i) {
               //set what should happen when negative button is clicked
                    Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),"Nothing Happened",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                }
            })
            .show();

You will get the following output.

You can create the dialog box using AlertDialog.Builder

Try this:

AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
        builder.setMessage("Are you sure you want to delete this entry?");

        builder.setPositiveButton("Yes, please", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                //perform any action
                Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Yes clicked", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
        });

        builder.setNegativeButton("No", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                //perform any action
                Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "No clicked", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
        });

        //creating alert dialog
        AlertDialog alertDialog = builder.create();
        alertDialog.show();

To change the color of the positive & negative buttons of Alert dialog you can write the below two lines after alertDialog.show();

alertDialog.getButton(AlertDialog.BUTTON_POSITIVE).setTextColor(getResources().getColor(R.color.colorPrimary));
alertDialog.getButton(AlertDialog.BUTTON_NEGATIVE).setTextColor(getResources().getColor(R.color.colorPrimaryDark));


You can use this code:

AlertDialog.Builder alertDialog2 = new AlertDialog.Builder(
    AlertDialogActivity.this);

// Setting Dialog Title
alertDialog2.setTitle("Confirm Delete...");

// Setting Dialog Message
alertDialog2.setMessage("Are you sure you want delete this file?");

// Setting Icon to Dialog
alertDialog2.setIcon(R.drawable.delete);

// Setting Positive "Yes" Btn
alertDialog2.setPositiveButton("YES",
    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
            // Write your code here to execute after dialog
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
                           "You clicked on YES", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT)
                    .show();
        }
    });

// Setting Negative "NO" Btn
alertDialog2.setNegativeButton("NO",
    new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
            // Write your code here to execute after dialog
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
                           "You clicked on NO", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT)
                    .show();
            dialog.cancel();
        }
    });

// Showing Alert Dialog
alertDialog2.show();

for me

new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
    .setTitle("Closing application")
    .setMessage("Are you sure you want to exit?")
    .setPositiveButton("Yes", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
          @Override
          public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {

          }
     }).setNegativeButton("No", null).show();

you can try this....

    AlertDialog.Builder dialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);
dialog.setCancelable(false);
dialog.setTitle("Dialog on Android");
dialog.setMessage("Are you sure you want to delete this entry?" );
dialog.setPositiveButton("Delete", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
    @Override
    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) {
        //Action for "Delete".
    }
})
        .setNegativeButton("Cancel ", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
            //Action for "Cancel".
            }
        });

final AlertDialog alert = dialog.create();
alert.show();
