CookieBar is a lightweight library for showing a brief message at the top or bottom of the screen.

Main differences from the original Cookiebar are:

  • Swipe to dismiss has been added.
  • Programmatic dismiss functionality added.
  • Only one Cookie can be displayed at a time (New top cookie will dismiss the current top one if exists).
  • Message view captures clicks, blocks downward propagation.
  • Slightly different build interface.
  • Icon animator support.
  • Custom layout can be applied to a cookie.
  • Colors presets added.
  • Removed supportRtl / allowBackup from library scope (Should be set at app level).

Create a simple cookie

Cookie with an icon and an action
         .setAction("ACTION", new OnActionClickListener() {
             public void onClick() {

Programmatically dismiss cookies currently being displayed


Create a cookie with a custom layout

// The view you inflate must contain subviews with the same id's as the original layout_cookie.xml
// You can set visibility to gone, if you wish to hide them.
final View customView =
                        inflate(R.layout.custom_cookie, null);

final ProgressBar progressBar = customView.findViewById(;
         .setAction("Hide Progress bar", new OnActionClickListener() {
                  public void onClick() {

Change default cookie style by setting theme attributes

<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
   <item name="cookieTitleColor">@color/default_title_color</item>
   <item name="cookieMessageColor">@color/default_message_color</item>
   <item name="cookieActionColor">@color/default_action_color</item>
   <item name="cookieBackgroundColor">@color/default_bg_color</item>

Dynamically set cookie style

  • layoutGravity
  • backgroundColor
  • titleColor
  • messageColor
  • actionColor
  • duration
