After downloading the image, copy this image into res->drawable directory.

Step 2. Drawable resource files

In this example, we need to create two drawable resource files. These files are used to give radiant effect to our buttons.

  • Create a xml resource file named button.xml in res->drawable directory.

Add below source code in it.

  • It will add the gradient effects with blue as a core color.
  • Now create another xml resource file named button_yellow.xml in res->drawable directory.

Copy below code in this file

  • It will add the gradient effects with yellow as a core color.

Step 3. Layout Of the Custom Dialog

Here, we will create another layout resource file named dialog_layout.xml

Source code this file is as following:

  • You can create any layout as per your requirements using this file.
  • I will show one image and two buttons in this example.

This file will generate the following preview.

Step 4. Final Work

Only thing required now is to change code for activity_main.xml and file

Put following code in activity_main.xml file

Copy the below source code in

  • showDialog() method will create our custom dialog and will pop up it to the user.

Read the below two lines of code

  • First line will disable the cancelable property of dialog. It means that when user taps on the outside of the dialog to cancel it, it will not be canceled.
  • Second line will set our custom view or representation in the dialog.
  • We have made our custom look for dialog in dialog_layout.xml file. Second line will tell the compiler to make the look and feel of the dialog as per our dialog_layout.xml file.

Setting The Custom Title

  • As I have already said that we are able to set custom title for our dialog with this example.
  • To set the custom title, you have to send your title when you are calling the showDialog() method.
  • Set your custom title in the second parameter of the showDialog() method. I have set the title as “First Custom Dialog.”

Following line will set the title of the dialog

Button Clicks

Let us show how to handle button clicks. I have taken two buttons in this dialog.

Following code will handle the first button’s (OK button) click event.

  • Dialog will be dismissed when the user clicks on the OK button.

Similarly you can customize this click event as per your requirements.
