Create your own custom button for Facebook login

Once you first add the Facebook login/signup, the button looks something like:

Most of the times, it doesn’t match with the design-specs of your app. And here’s how you can customize it:

<FrameLayout
    android:layout_below="@+id/no_network_bar"
    android:id="@+id/FrameLayout1"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content">

    <com.facebook.login.widget.LoginButton
        android:id="@+id/login_button"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:visibility="gone" />

    <Button
        android:background="#3B5998"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="60dp"
        android:id="@+id/fb"
        android:onClick="onClickFacebookButton"
        android:textAllCaps="false"
        android:text="Sign up with Facebook"
        android:textSize="22sp"
        android:textColor="#ffffff" />
</FrameLayout>

Just wrap the original com.facebook.login.widget.LoginButton into a FrameLayout and make its visibility gone.

Next, add your custom button in the same FrameLayout. I’ve added some sample specs. You can always make your own drawable background for the facebook button and set it as the background of the button.

The final thing we do is simply convert the click on my custom button to a click on the facecbook button:

//The original Facebook button
LoginButton loginButton = (LoginButton)findViewById(R.id.login_button);

//Our custom Facebook button
fb = (Button) findViewById(R.id.fb);

public void onClickFacebookButton(View view) {
    if (view == fb) {
        loginButton.performClick();
    }
}

Great! Now the button looks something like this:
