Android transparent overlay without View

We’re not going to use ViewOverlay here. We’ll use Dialog instead.

The overlay does not show on button click. What I did was let the overlay appear when the activity is loaded.

First, create the XML file for the contents of that dialog overlay.

\app\src\main\res\layout\popup_content.xml

Then add the following code into your activity’s Java file. Please edit as needed in your project.

Notes:
You might need to add lines of “import” codes yourself for the classes I used.
You might need to fill in missing @color and @dimen values yourself.

app\src\main\java\com\yourpackagename\yourappname\activities\MainActivity.java
