android : TextInputLayout hides drawableRight of child EditText

I am always updated with library updates, and this is what it resulted into.

In build.gradle(Project:xxx):

classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.0-beta1'


In build.gradle(Module:app)

compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:24.2.0'
compile 'com.android.support:design:24.2.0'


And put password field as below:

<android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content">

<android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatEditText
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:inputType="textPassword" />
</android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>


Taadaa...My Password field looks now as below:

enter image description here

You can also go simply with
EditText
.

But, there are some glitches in this update.

Problem:
If I put any drawableRight in EditText, it displays nothing. TextInputLayout also has property to disable toggle functionality. I did it that too as below, but no success:

<android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
app:passwordToggleEnabled="false">

<EditText
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:drawableRight="@drawable/ic_alarm_on_black_24dp"
android:inputType="textPassword" />
</android.support.design.widget.TextInputLayout>


Can anyone help me please.

Answer

I reported the issue at https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=221002.

It was a bug in the library version 24.2.0 but it has been fixed in version 24.2.1. Simply update as below:

compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:24.2.1'
compile 'com.android.support:design:24.2.1'
