Android-ShareEverywhere

This project is the tribute to my favorite Android Widget: the Share button. Share ALL THE THINGS!

Summary

You may know about the ShareActionProvider that was introduced in API 14. This project extends the ShareActionProvider in a few very important ways:

  1. It breaks the Widget free of the ActionBar. It can be used as a standalone View in any layout.
  2. It allows you to specify multiple share intents, which will be combined when displayed.
  3. Its default sorting function also uses alphabetical order.
  4. It can be used (with ActionBarSherlock) on versions of android prior to API 14.

Usage

As a View

Using this view in a layout is simple:

<com.dgmltn.shareeverywhere.ShareView
    android:id="@+id/share_view"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

Then give it an intent (or multiple intents) in your Activity or Fragment:

    ShareView shareView = (ShareView) findViewById(R.id.share_view);
    shareView.setShareIntent(emailIntent, txtIntent);

In the ActionBar

Its use in the actionbar is the same as [http://developer.android.com/reference/android/widget/ShareActionProvider.html](ShareActionProvider)

In your menu.xml:

<item
    android:id="@+id/action_share"
    android:actionProviderClass="com.dgmltn.shareeverywhere.ShareActionProvider"
    android:showAsAction="always"
    android:title="Share" />

Then in your Activity/Fragment:

    @Override
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);

        MenuItem item = menu.findItem(R.id.action_share);
        ShareActionProvider shareActionProvider 
            = (ShareActionProvider) item.getActionProvider();
        shareActionProvider.setShareIntent(mSharedIntents);
        return true;
    }

Style

ShareEverywhere is quite styleable, most things that may want to be styled, can. Set this in your theme.xml:

<style name="AppTheme">
    ...
    <item name="shareViewStyle">@style/Widget.ShareView.Dark</item>
</style>

Or, style your view explicitly:

<com.dgmltn.shareeverywhere.ShareView
    style="@style/Widget.ShareView.Light"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

Create your own style. Styleable elements can be found in res/values/styles.xml.

<style name="Widget.ShareView.Custom" parent="Widget.ShareView">
    <item name="sv_buttonDrawable">@drawable/my_share_button</item>
    <item name="sv_buttonBackground">@drawable/my_list_selector</item>
    <item name="sv_popupTextColor">#f3f3f3</item>
</style>
