- (Instructor) When you build an application in…Android Studio you have access to the support libraries.…A collection of components that you can use to improve…the appearance and behavior of your Android app.…One of these is known as the text input layout component.…And when you're working on a layout file in design mode,…you'll find it in the design category under the palette.…You can click and drag these onto the screen…just like you can any view object.…Before I use this I'm going to show…you the beginning application.…
It has two edit text components and a run code button.…And I'll run the application on my virtual device.…The edit text components display a hint.…With these beginning components the hint is displayed…as disabled text and as soon as you start…typing the hint goes away.…I'll type a value here and then one here and click run code.…And I see the results in a toast message.…So functionally this is all working fine…but my goal is to improve the visual appearance and…the behavior to make the form a little bit easier to use.…
