Installation

:warning: Warning :warning:

From NativeScript 5.x using this component will break the NativeScript tab component on iOS (which is bound to be removed). This is needed to allow using the latest native iOS features. If needed you can use either bottomnavigationbar (this one is the best choice, closest to material design) or material-tabs (clone of the NativeScript one, but with a little less features).

For NativeScript 7.0+

  • tns plugin add @nativescript-community/ui-material-textview

For NativeScript 6.x

  • tns plugin add nativescript-material-textview

If using tns-core-modules

  • tns plugin add nativescript-material-textview@2.5.4

Be sure to run a new build after adding plugins to avoid any issues.

Plain NativeScript

IMPORTANT: Make sure you include xmlns:mdt="@nativescript-community/ui-material-textview" on the Page element.

XML

<Page xmlns:mdt="@nativescript-community/ui-material-textview">
<StackLayout horizontalAlignment="center">
<mdt:TextView text="raised textview"/>
<mdt:TextView variant="flat" text="flat textview"/>
<mdt:TextView variant="text" text="text textview"/>
<mdt:TextView elevation="5" rippleColor="red" text="raised custom textview"/>
</StackLayout>
</Page>

CSS

mdctextview {
ripple-color: blue;
elevation: 4;
stroke-color: blue; /* the border color when active */
stroke-inactive-color: green; /* the border color when inactive */
floating-color: blue; /* the floating placeholder color when active */
floating-inactive-color: green; /* the floating placeholder color when inactive */
}

NativeScript + Angular

import { NativeScriptMaterialTextViewModule } from "@nativescript-community/ui-material-textview/angular";

@NgModule({
imports: [
NativeScriptMaterialTextViewModule,
...
],
...
})
<MDTextView  helper="example helper" placeholderColor="green" keyboardType="datetime"
hint="i am an hint" returnKeyType="next" (focus)="onFocus($event)" (blur)="onBlur($event)"
(textChange)="onTextChange($event)">
</MDTextView>

NativeScript + Vue

import TextViewPlugin from '@nativescript-community/ui-material-textview/vue';

Vue.use(TextViewPlugin);
<MDTextView helper="example helper" placeholderColor="green" keyboardType="datetime"
hint="i am an hint" returnKeyType="next" @focus="onFocus" @blur="onBlur"
@textChange="onTextChange"/>

Also, you can bind the text to some instance data using the v-model directive:

<MDTextView v-model="value" />
