This is a follow on from +Cyril Mottier's post yesterday[0] about floating labels on Android. If you haven't seen that post, go read it first. #AndroidDev

This pattern is actually something that I implemented last week (but haven't got around to posting). So anyway here is my implementation: 


So what makes this different to the other libraries on GitHub?
For my use I needed to be able to still create the EditText myself in XML, for styling and other purposes.  As you can see in the example_layout.xml file in the gist, FloatingLabelLayout wraps around your EditText to provide a label rather than trying to control everything.

FloatingLabelLayout also changes the label's activated state based on the EditText's focused state. This means that you can easily set the label's textColor to a ColorStateList[1], to change it's color if the input is focused (see the screencap below).

Looking to do a GDG Bozeman general meetup. Chat about GDG stuff, what topics we would like to focus on for the next 6 months, and some hands on time with Google GLASS. Also chat about the Mirror API if we have enough time afterwards. I think it would be great to see what products people are interested in and suggestions for future GDG meetups welcome.

Limited opening for a limited quantity.  Get +Google Glass tomorrow morning @ 6am PDT.
Become a Glass Explorer on Tues April 15

Whoops. So... we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. 

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at:

We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.

*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.
