Creating a simple Snackbar

Creating a Snackbar can be done as follows:

Snackbar.make(view, "Text to display", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG).show();

The view is used to find a suitable parent to use to display the Snackbar. Typically this would be a CoordinatorLayout that you’ve defined in your XML, which enables adding functionality such as swipe to dismiss and automatically moving of other widgets (e.g. FloatingActionButton). If there’s no CoordinatorLayout then the window decor’s content view is used.

Very often we also add an action to the Snackbar. A common use case would be an “Undo” action.

Snackbar.make(view, "Text to display", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG)
        .setAction("UNDO", new View.OnClickListener() {
               public void onClick(View view) {
                   // put your logic here


You can create a Snackbar and show it later:

Snackbar snackbar = Snackbar.make(view, "Text to display", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG);;

If you want to change the color of the Snackbar’s text:

Snackbar snackbar = Snackbar.make(view, "Text to display", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG);
View view = snackbar .getView();
TextView textView = (TextView) view.findViewById(;

By default Snackbar dismisses on it’s right swipe.This example demonstrates how to dismiss the snackBar on it’s left swipe.
