how to add ripple effect to a button?


I've made the fun fact app however I would like to have the ripple effect when I touch the button. It works fine if I don't set a background color but as soon as I add a white background it just behaves like a white rectangle that you tap.

Want to know how to add touch feedback (ripple effect) that you see in android 5.0.

Hi Michael,

I found this link to be useful when I was looking for the answer to this same question. http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2014/10/implementing-material-design-in-your.html

Hope that helps.
