Android: Using selector to set background color for image view

I am trying to set the background color of an image view.

<ImageView
android:id="@+id/my_image"
android:src="@drawable/my_icon"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:clickable="true"
android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
android:background="@drawable/selector_image_view" />


I am using the following selector.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<item android:state_selected="true" android:background="@color/Violet" />
<item android:state_pressed="true" android:background="@color/red" />
<item android:background="@color/white" />
</selector>


But, it crashes if I try to use the selector with a runtime exception. What am I doing wrong?

My logcat

Answer

Your Logcat:

E/AndroidRuntime( 4196): Caused by: org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException: Binary XML file line #3: tag requires a 'drawable' attribute or child tag defining a drawable

LogCat is pointing out that your <item> tag should include android:drawable tag.

You selector file should look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> 
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">     
     <item android:state_selected="true" android:drawable="@color/Violet" />    
     <item android:state_pressed="true" android:drawable="@color/red" />
     <item android:drawable="@color/white" />
</selector>
