With Showcase, you can easily show tooltips. Showcase will highlight the view and show tooltip on it. You can customize title and description text fields, backgrounds and arrow positions. Also you can have callback when user quits from Showcase.


  • To implement Showcase to your Android project via Gradle, you need to add Jitpack repository to your root build.gradle.

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url '' }
  • After adding Jitpack repository, you can add Showcase dependency to your app level build.gradle.

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.mohammadfrh:showCase:1.0.0'

⚠️ To use Showcase, you need to enable dataBinding from your main project’s build.gradle.


You can easily use ShowcaseManager.Builder to create Showcase.

val showcaseManager = ShowcaseManager.Builder()  
    .titleText("Title about myView")  
    .descriptionText("Little bit info for my lovely myView")
