EditText with custom shape (drawable)

To create EditText with our own shape, create a drawable XML to define our custom shape:

res/drawable/myshape.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:shape="rectangle"
android:padding="10dp">
<solid android:color="#505050"/>
<corners
android:bottomRightRadius="10dp"
android:bottomLeftRadius="10dp"
android:topLeftRadius="10dp"
android:topRightRadius="10dp"/>
</shape>

Reference my shape in layout xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_margin="20dp"
android:orientation="vertical"
tools:context="com.blogspot.android_er.androidedittextchanged.MainActivity">

<TextView
android:id="@+id/title"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal"
android:autoLink="web"
android:text="http://android-er.blogspot.com/"
android:textStyle="bold"/>

<EditText
android:id="@+id/edittext1"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:hint="normal EditText"/>
<EditText
android:id="@+id/edittext2"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:hint="EditText with custom shape"
android:textColorHint="#B0B0B0"
android:textColor="#F0F0F0"
android:background="@drawable/myshape" />

</LinearLayout>
