How to create a custom button in Android

BY: Mike Zriel

To create an custom button in Android create a subfolder called drawable in the res directory.

Then create an xml file save is as custom_button.xml or what ever you chose to name it.

below is content for your custom button

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    <solid android:color="#00ff00" />

        android:topRightRadius="7dp" />
        android:color="#ff0000" />


solid sets the hex color of the button, corners set the corner radius ( rounded corders ), stroke set a border color for the button.
