EditText hint does not float above text RRS feed

  • Question

  • User177928 posted

    Hi, I updated the Android Support libraries from v24.2.1 to v25.1.0 and noticed that in one of my activities the hint does not float above the text anymore. The hint is set in the layout, text is set by code at the end of OnCreate(). It floats away when the user deletes all text in the box, clicks somewhere else and starts typing again.

    Fortunately I don't need to make an update of the support libraries, but it is an interesting problem after all.

    <android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"> <android.support.design.widget.TextInputEditText android:inputType="number" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:id="@+id/prefTimeoutEditText" android:text="100" android:hint="@string/addTimeout" /> </android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>

    Seems to be a known issue with the latest v25.1.0 and not fixed in v25.1.1.


    I need v25.1.0+ to fix a bug, but in doing so it's introduced this and 2 other bugs. Seriously Google? Lol

    25.3.1 is told to have fixed this. Any estimation on how could this be updated?
