Android Persistent Search Library

A library that implements the persistent search bar seen on apps such as Google Now, Google Maps and Google Play

GIF of its use

Usage

Android Studio: Add the Sonatype repository if you have not already:

maven {
url "https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots"
}

Import it as a dependency:

compile 'com.quinny898.library.persistentsearch:library:1.1.0-SNAPSHOT'

Eclipse:
Import it as a library project

In your layout:

<com.quinny898.library.persistentsearch.SearchBox
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/searchbox"
/>

Please include this after any elements you wish to be hidden by it in a releativelayout.

Absolute requirements in the activity code

In your onCreate/onCreateView (activity or fragment):

search.enableVoiceRecognition(this);

And in the same class:

@Override
public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
if (isAdded() && requestCode == SearchBox.VOICE_RECOGNITION_CODE && resultCode == getActivity().RESULT_OK) {
ArrayList<String> matches = data
.getStringArrayListExtra(RecognizerIntent.EXTRA_RESULTS);
search.populateEditText(matches);
}
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
}

More on implementation:

search = (SearchBox) findViewById(R.id.searchbox);
for(int x = 0; x < 10; x++){
SearchResult option = new SearchResult("Result " + Integer.toString(x), getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.ic_history));
search.addSearchable(option);
}		
search.setLogoText("My App");
search.setMenuListener(new MenuListener(){
@Override
public void onMenuClick() {
//Hamburger has been clicked
Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Menu click", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();				
}
});
search.setSearchListener(new SearchListener(){
@Override
public void onSearchOpened() {
//Use this to tint the screen
}
@Override
public void onSearchClosed() {
//Use this to un-tint the screen
}
@Override
public void onSearchTermChanged() {
//React to the search term changing
//Called after it has updated results
}
@Override
public void onSearch(String searchTerm) {
Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, searchTerm +" Searched", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}
@Override
public void onResultClick(SearchResult result){
//React to a result being clicked
}
@Override
public void onSearchCleared() {
}
});

##Showing from a MenuItem

search.revealFromMenuItem(R.id.action_search, this);

Note that when a search occurs, the box closes. You should react to this in onSearch, maybe set your toolbar title?

Custom

Set the logo text color:

search.setLogoTextColor(Color.parse("#000000"));

SearchResult

This is a class that holds two parameters – Title and icon
The title is displayed as a suggested result and will be used for searching, the icon is displayed to the left of the title in the suggestions (eg. a history icon)
You can make a SearchResult as follows

new SearchResult("Title", getResources().getDrawable(R.drawable.icon));
