Usage

Gradle

dependencies {
...
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.2.1'
compile 'am.gaut.android.toolbarbutton:toolbarbutton:0.1.0'
}

xml Code :

<am.gaut.android.toolbarbutton.ToolbarButton
android:id="@+id/btn_toolbar_checkin"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
style="?attr/borderlessButtonStyle"
android:background="@drawable/selector_toolbar_button"
android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Widget.Button.Inverse"
android:paddingLeft="@dimen/toolbar_button_padding"
android:paddingRight="@dimen/toolbar_button_padding"
android:drawablePadding="@dimen/toolbar_button_padding"
android:drawableLeft="@drawable/ic_message_white_18dp"
android:drawableStart="@drawable/ic_message_white_18dp"
android:text="@string/checkin"
app:layout_anchor="@id/appbar"
app:layout_anchorGravity="right|end" />

You can treat the view as a Button. Properties in the snippet produce a similar result as in the screen capture.

@dimen/toolbar_button_padding (16dp), @drawable/selector_toolbar_button (see, v21) are supplied by the library.

@drawable/ic_message_white_18dp is a material icon.

?attr/borderlessButtonStyle and @style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Widget.Button.Inverse come from the design support library.

 

Troubleshooting

Q. The button hides on scroll. Why is this happening?

The default elevation of 6dp is getting overridden, making it compete with the elevation of the appbar. Try adding android:elevation=”6dp” property on the view.

Q. Does this work for Android versions before 4.0?

It can be made to work for previous Android versions as well, using different implementation classes like the Floating Action Button. If you take up the initiative, please submit a PR.
