Customizing the appearance of the TextInputLayout

You can customize the appearance of the TextInputLayout and its embedded EditTextby defining custom styles in your styles.xml. The defined styles can either be added as styles or themes to your TextInputLayout.

Example for customizing the hint appearance:

styles.xml:

<!--Floating label text style-->  
<style name="MyHintStyle" parent="TextAppearance.AppCompat.Small">  
    <item name="android:textColor">@color/black</item>
</style>

<!--Input field style-->  
<style name="MyEditText" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light">  
    <item name="colorControlNormal">@color/indigo</item>
    <item name="colorControlActivated">@color/pink</item>
</style>

To Apply Style update your TextInputLayout And EditText as follows

<android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout  
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    app:hintTextAppearance="@style/MyHintStyle">

    <EditText
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:hint="@string/Title"
        android:theme="@style/MyEditText" />

</android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>

Example to customize the accent color of the TextInputLayout. The accent color affects the color of the baseline of the EditText and the text color for the floating hint text:

styles.xml:

<style name="TextInputLayoutWithPrimaryColor" parent="Widget.Design.TextInputLayout">
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/primary</item>
</style>

layout file:

<android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout
            android:id="@+id/textInputLayout_password"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:theme="@style/TextInputLayoutWithPrimaryColor">

            <android.support.design.widget.TextInputEditText
                android:id="@+id/textInputEditText_password"
                android:layout_width="match_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:hint="@string/login_hint_password"
                android:inputType="textPassword" />

</android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>
