CustomSnackBar

CustomSnackBar is a repo of my own customization for Snackbar, with this you could able to change background color of Snackbar, font, style, color, icons for title and action. The Snackbar usage in android application is completely customized according to the Singleton pattern methods for using Snackbar effectively in Activity and fragments by avoiding un necessary object creation and lengthy boiler plate code.

How to use?

To create Simple Snackbar with Title and Action text
 SnackBar snackBar = new SnackBar();
snackBar.view (view)
.text ("title", "action")
.show ();
Note: By creating simple Snackbar, your text color will be white and action color will be yellow by default with black background. To customize Color of Title and Action Text
 SnackBar snackBar = new SnackBar();
snackBar.view (view)
.text ("title", "action")
.textColors (Color.WHITE,Color.RED)
.show ();
Tip: You can pass your desired color codes in to textColors(Color.WHITE,Color.RED). To customize background Color of Snackbar
 SnackBar snackBar = new SnackBar();
snackBar.view (view)
.text ("title", "action")
.backgroundColor (Color.RED)
.show ();
Tip: You can pass your desired color codes as background in backgroundColor(Color.RED). To Change duration of Snackbar to be displayed
 SnackBar snackBar = new SnackBar();
snackBar.view (view)
.text ("title", "action")
.duration (SnackBar.SnackBarDuration.LONG)
.show ();
Types of duration:
  1. SnackBar.SnackBarDuration.SHORT - Displays Snackbar for short duration
  2. SnackBar.SnackBarDuration.LONG - Displays Snackbar for long duration
  3. SnackBar.SnackBarDuration.INDEFINITE - Snackbar disappears only if you Click Action button. This case can be used for handling any click events in a Action button ( i.e Calling any methods or changing UI's ).
Tip: If you fail to assign your duration, by default SHORT duration will be assigned. To Handle click events in Action button
   SnackBar snackBarActionClick = new SnackBar();
snackBarActionClick.view(mainContent)
.text ("Error fetching data", "RETRY")
.duration (SnackBar.SnackBarDuration.INDEFINITE)
.setOnClickListener (true, new            OnActionClickListener () {
@Override
public void onClick (View view) {
//Do your stuffs here.
}
})
.show ();
Note: Here I have specified Snackbar duration as SnackBar.SnackBarDuration.INDEFINITE because to perform some actions in onClick
