Android TextInputLayout


TextInputLayout was introduced to display the floating label on EditText. The EditText has to be wrapped by TextInputLayout in order to display the floating label.


TextInputLayout is a layout which wraps an EditText (or descendant) to show a floating label when the hint is hidden due to the user inputting text. Additonally the TextInputLayout enables you to display an error message below the EditText.
