Android dialog background with corner radius has layered background


I'm new to Android, and really Java also. In my app, I've got an alert dialog I'm throwing up that displays a date and time picker for the user to select a datetime they would like to send a message. That part is going fine.

In my xml, when I set a background attribute, which is currently blue and has a corner radius, there is seemingly an additional white background without a corner radius peeking out behind it. I'm a little miffed. Any help is appreciated.


<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:orientation="vertical" android:background="@drawable/corners_qk" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:padding="8dp" android:layout_height="match_parent"> <DatePicker android:id="@+id/date_picker" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:calendarViewShown="true" android:spinnersShown="false" android:layout_weight="4" android:layout_height="0dp" /> <TimePicker android:id="@+id/time_picker" android:layout_weight="4" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="0dp" /> <Button android:id="@+id/date_time_set" android:layout_weight="1" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:background="@drawable/corners" android:text="@string/picker_button" android:layout_height="0dp" /> </LinearLayout>


<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" > <corners android:radius="5dp" /> <solid android:color="@color/qkblue"/> </shape>


<resources> <color name="red">#FF0000</color> <color name="qkblue">#2483d0</color> </resources>


final View dialogView = View.inflate(this, R.layout.date_time_picker, null); final AlertDialog alertDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(this).create(); dialogView.findViewById(R.id.date_time_set).setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() { @Override public void onClick(View view) { DatePicker datePicker = (DatePicker) dialogView.findViewById(R.id.date_picker); TimePicker timePicker = (TimePicker) dialogView.findViewById(R.id.time_picker); Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(datePicker.getYear(), datePicker.getMonth(), datePicker.getDayOfMonth(), timePicker.getCurrentHour(), timePicker.getCurrentMinute()); long time = calendar.getTimeInMillis(); try { messageSend(); } catch (JSONException | IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); } }}); alertDialog.setView(dialogView); alertDialog.show();


Actually the the background that you are seeing is the default theme of the AlertDialog which is Light_THEME, There is no way to make it transparent instead of using the AlertDialog just use the Dialog where you can make the its theme transparent.


final Dialog alertDialog = new Dialog(this); alertDialog.requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE); alertDialog.setContentView(R.layout.date_time_picker); alertDialog.findViewById(R.id.date_time_set).setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() { @Override public void onClick(View view) { DatePicker datePicker = (DatePicker) alertDialog.findViewById(R.id.date_picker); TimePicker timePicker = (TimePicker) alertDialog.findViewById(R.id.time_picker); Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(datePicker.getYear(), datePicker.getMonth(), datePicker.getDayOfMonth(), timePicker.getCurrentHour(), timePicker.getCurrentMinute()); long time = calendar.getTimeInMillis(); }}); alertDialog.getWindow().setBackgroundDrawable(new ColorDrawable(android.graphics.Color.TRANSPARENT)); alertDialog.show();
