Modal Dialogs Styling

By default, PSPDFKit styles all dialogs according to your theme without any additional work. This produces light dialogs with light application themes and dark dialogs with dark application themes.

If the default behavior is not enough, a large set of style attributes is available to alter the appearance to your needs. For a comprehensive usage example, take a look at DarkThemeExample and DarkThemeActivity inside the Catalog app.

Alert Dialogs

PSPDFKit supports the standard alertDialogTheme attribute from appcompat-v7 for styling all AlertDialog instances:

Copy
styles.xml
1
2
3
<style name="MyApp.PSPDFKitTheme" parent="PSPDFKit.Theme.Default">
    <item name="alertDialogTheme>@style/PSPDFKit.AlertDialog</item>
</style>

Modal Dialogs

PSPDFKit allows styling the appearance of common properties of custom modal dialogs, including sharing and printing dialogs, the annotation inspector, stamp and signature pickers, and new page dialogs:

1
<item name="pspdf__modalDialogStyle">@style/MyApp.ModalDialogStyle</item>

Attributes

Attribute Description
pspdf__titleBackground Dialog title bar background color.
pspdf__titleTextColor Dialog title bar text color.
pspdf__titleIconsColor Dialog title bar icon color.
pspdf__titleHeight Dialog title height.
pspdf__titleTextSize Dialog title text size.
pspdf__titlePadding Dialog title padding.

To use different modal dialog styles, override the pspdf__modalDialogStyle theme attribute that is controlling your dialog theming in your styles.xml.

Using Light Dialogs with Dark Themes

You may want to use a dark application theme like Theme.AppCompat.NoActionBar and still use light-themed dialogs. To achieve this, change the dialog style parent to Theme.AppCompat.Dialog.Light or ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Light. The first variant will override all theme values like primaryColor and colorAccent, while the latter will simply overlay dark theme colors with their light variants.

For example, to produce a lightly colored sharing dialog, set the following as your pspdf__sharingDialogStyle:

Copy
1
2
3
4
<style name="MyApp.SharingDialogStyle" parent="ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Light">
    <item name="pspdf__backgroundColor">@color/pspdf__color_white</item>
    <item name="pspdf__errorColor">@color/pspdf__color_error</item>
</style>
